Got a massive guestlist? You'll have no issues fitting into the plush new Grand Pavilion just created at Hylands House, which can now host receptions for up to 300.

VENUES TO MAKE A STATEMENT IN

It's a modern venue, in contrast to the grandeur of the main building with its sweeping staircase (right), where you can say your vows in the ornate Victorian Drawing Room or elegant Library in front of up to 80 guests.
