Friern Manor Country House Hotel built in circa 1790, was transformed in the late 1980's to one of the country's foremost exclusive hotels. Being amongst the first properties in England and Wales to benefit from the change in the Marriages Act 1995, it now boasts unrivalled facilities for wedding ceremonies within its unique setting.

Playing host to many small, intimate weddings to the larger society gatherings, Friern Manor has three distinct locations for the solemnisation of marriages: The Dunton Room, The Old Coaching stables & The South Lawn Conservatory.

As one would expect from a venue such as this, the care and attention doesn't just stop at the building. A whole host of luxury awaits both you and your guests, from crystal glassware to English bone china, from competent trained staff to an unparalleled level of service, not to mention our award-winning cuisine. You can rest assured that your special day will be memorable for all.
