Venue special features: Eynsham Hall is a magnificent Jacobean style building set within 3000 acres of Eynsham Park Estate. Located just 12 miles from Oxford, this beautiful mansion with its landscaped gardens provides the perfect setting for the most important day of your life

Venue History: The History Of Eynsham Hall On this site for over 300 years has stood one of Oxfordshire s great country houses. It originated from one landowner s efforts to keep up with the wealth and times of the early 1700s. Willoughby Lacey enclosed vast acres of his land to create his own pleasure parkland. At the heart of this was the newly built Eynsham Manor, a typical Georgian house with its Greek style columns, elegant interiors and grand gardens. In 1778 he sold the estate to London auctioneer and newspaper proprietor Robert Langford. On Langford s death in 1785, ownership passed to his chief legatee, James Duberley. Duberley and his five daughters remained at the Hall until 1799 when the Reverend John Robinson moved in. His stay was relatively short and in 1805, for reasons unknown, he sold the manor and estate to Sir Thomas Parker. Sir Thomas father, the 4th Earl of Macclesfield purchased Eynsham Hall to serve as a dower house for Shirburn Castle. On the death of Sir Thomas mother Eliza, Dowager Countess of Macclesfield, the estate was sold to Sir Thomas Bazley MP, a prominent Lancashire cotton manufacturer. Best known for his hatred of holly trees, Bazley had them cut down and burnt all over the park. This did not make him the most popular of owners with the local country people, as English folklore considers it unlucky to lay steel to them. 1866 saw the arrival of the present freeholders s grandfather, James Mason, who was a mining engineer, having made his fortune from copper in Portugal. After his death in 1903, his son James Francis Mason and his wife Lady Evelyn took over the Hall. Since the Hall was built, two additional floors have been added, one by Sir Charles Barry in 1843 and then a further floor by Owen Jones in 1872. It was felt at that time the house was not proportionally balanced or suitable for entertaining in a grand scale. In 1904 the Georgian house was demolished and the original foundations of the Georgian building were completely removed. Ernest George (later to become Sir Ernest George) was appointed as the architect and he supervised the construction to his design of the present day Jacobean style mansion which was completed in 1908. The new Hall was an H plan, 3 storey building with squared and coursed grey limestone with ruddy coloured Ashlar quoins and dressings. The Hall was finely decorated throughout with oak panelling, stone fire places, strapwork ceilings and fine panelled doors. Of particular importance was the Library with its mahogany bookcases and finely carved door cases, with its C18 colouredmarble fireplace and plasterwork ceiling in Inigo Jones style.
