Weddings at Whatton House & Gardens



A Hidden Gem

In the heart of Leicestershire, Whatton House & Gardens is the most romantic location for your wedding day. Used as a hospital during the war, caring for wartime mothers and their babies, Whatton House is now a much cherished family home lived in and cared for by the fifth Lord Crawshaw and his wife, Belinda.

This historic home is enveloped by beautiful rolling parkland and its exquisite 15 acre gardens which will provide the magical setting for your wedding day.

Our garden marquee site, located in the depths of our incredible English garden, is a beautiful setting for a wedding breakfast and evening party. The stunning grounds will be exclusively yours on your wedding day and, because we want you to feel completely at home, our experienced team will be on hand to work with you and explore your ideas and dreams, helping to turn them into your reality.
