The Speech House Hotel

At The Speech House we take great pride in our attention to detail with the ultimate aim being to provide you with your perfect wedding day. Every wedding is individually planned with our experienced wedding co-ordinators to ensure that you have a wedding that is tailor made just for you.

Civil ceremonies are mostly held in the Verderers Court which is still used today by the Verderers to make decisions about our beautiful forest, of which The Speech House marks the centre. Your ceremony can be personalised with readings, music or poetry and we are here to help and advise.

Your ceremony would normally be followed by welcome drinks and canapés served to your guests in the Orangery and garden. The Orangery can be hired exclusively for this part of your day.

The main wedding breakfast is held in the Court or Marquee depending on your numbers. We serve coffee and petit fours in the Orangery after which dancing to our resident DJ takes place in the Marquee for up to 200+ guests.

We have 36 en-suite bedrooms at The Speech House for any of your guests who may require accommodation. The bedrooms vary in style and are priced to accommodate all budgets.
