Venue History: Wadenhoe House, located in rural Northamptonshire, enjoys a unique place in the history of England dating back to the mid 17th century.

The original parts of the building are of Jacobean style and were built by the De Lacy family who were discovered to have been actively involved in the Gunpowder Plot. Wadenhoe House is known to have been one of the meeting places of the conspirators. After the Gunpowder Plot was discovered the De Lacy family vacated the house.

In 1735 the estate passed into the ownership of Sir Edward Ward whose daughter Jane married a Thomas Hunt from Shropshire and thus the combined name of Ward Hunt came to Wadenhoe. Wadenhoe s political and financial history was further enhanced when George Ward Hunt became Chancellor of the Exchequer in the first Disraeli government and went on to become First Lord of the Admiralty in 1874. In a comparatively short life (1825 1877) George Ward Hunt was not only a force in local affairs and national politics he also found time to remodel Wadenhoe House to create a classical House of the period.

Converted in 1966 to a residential training centre, Wadenhoe House was acquired in 1990 by Peter and Margaret Hall. Under their management this fine building has captured many of the features and standards which has made it such a gracious family home.


Wedding Trivia:
A Swedish bride puts a silver coin from her father and a gold coin from her mother in each shoe to ensure that she'll never do without.
