We value your feedback at Hockering House
We have been together since 1999 and had been looking at wedding Venues for a while we have seen a few to say the least !!
We wanted to find a place which had style and beauty but without the formal / regimental feeling, where kids could run around and be kids and adults could relax and enjoy our special day.
Our 1st visit to Hockering House was just over a year before our wedding day we met with Sam at her beautiful home and was taken through all the different styles of weddings that have taken place over the years and one thing was clear was the passion we got from Sam that she delivers that perfect day.
What can I say we were sold booked it there and then.
Sam where do we start amazing is an understatement from your support though out the whole wedding planning to arranging the last minute marquee as in the day before due to our lovely British weather and coming up with plan b/c/d just to ensure we got the maximum from the venue on our wedding day.
We have received so many compliments from our guests from best wedding ever !! to how did we create such a relaxed day with so many people and children all of which is one big complement to you and your team of recommended suppliers.
Mat at Best Bars was fantastic and Natilie at Trio’s catering who most definitely delivered on food they both share in your passion of delivering the perfect day their staff were so professional and nothing was to much trouble.
Sam thank you for everything and to anybody considering Hockering House JUST BOOK IT !!!
You won’t be disappointed

Not quite sure where to start to be honest. If you’re thinking of getting married then quite honestly, you will struggle to find anywhere as intimate, professional and beautiful as Hockering House.
What we liked initially about the venue was that the actual owner (Sam) lived on site and was personally involved in almost every detail. We also liked that only 1 wedding a week is held there and therefore the whole thing feels so much more personal.
You will not find anyone more conscientious, driven and accommodating than Sam. Without her, there is no way we’d have had the wedding we did. She is amazing, nothing is too much trouble. On the day itself you don’t have to worry about anything, Sam communicates with all suppliers, oversees the running of everything, even acts as a waitress! Whatever you need, she just does.
The venue itself is just beautiful and the suppliers Sam works with are all brilliant. Our food was gorgeous, the bar was excellent, marquee beautiful.
Honestly we just had the BEST day, in the grounds of a beautiful house with beautiful people and we are so thankful to Sam for helping to make it all happen. August 2019
We got married at the beauitful Hockering House on 6th July 2019. Where do we start with Sam the owner?!.......... We booked the venue the year before, Sam has such a friendly, confident, and happy manner. She has years of experience of organising successful weddings which is clear to see in her attention to detail and incredible organisation. I once asked the bar company best@bars who always provide the bar at HH whether they'd seen anything go wrong at Hockering.... They replied "with Sam involved in the planning, nothing ever goes wrong!" Well I have to say they weren't wrong, David (husband) and I had the most perfect and enjoyable Wedding day., 😍 We want to say a big thank you to Sam for always being there to help us, being flexible with our plans, but foremost being the back bone behind making our special day come together so brilliantly and smoothly! Xx
We had the most amazing wedding day at Hockering House, we were looking for a wedding venue with a marquee that had a laid back, relaxed style, being a wedding florist I've seen a lot of venues but none had the same feel to it as Hockering. We loved the fact that we could decorate the marquee however we liked, getting access on the Thursday meant we could set up at a relaxed pace. We also wanted our guests to have lots of fun so garden games were a must, with the beautiful grounds there was plenty of room for the space hoppers, tug of war, fire pit and rounders match!!!
The most amazing thing about Hockering is Sam she has been so brilliant throughout the whole planing process, there whenever you need her, whatever the question, she is simply fabulous. She was there throughout the whole day making sure everything ran smoothly, so thank you so much Sam for your amazing work!!!
From the start Joe & I knew we wanted a festival themed wedding. The first venue we looked at was Hockering House & straight away we knew it was perfect for Wilsonbury! We were given total freedom to run with our theme & Sam was on hand from start to finish. You are super amazing Sam, running about everywhere for us, making sure our day was perfect, there isn’t enough thank you’s for you! The suppliers you put us in touch with were super professional, friendly & so hard working on such a hot day! Our guests loved the BBQ from Trio’s & the gin bar from Best@Bars was a huge success! To finish the day we even camped in one of Hockering House’s beautiful bell tents (the groom also camped the night before & loved it!).
Thank you again Sam for everything! We would love to come back & renew our vows in the future... our guests are already asking for Wilsonbury 2019 at Hockering House! Mr & Mrs Wilson (27th July 2018) x x
