Unique weddings at Hale Park
“First of all, a huge thank you! Hale Park provided the perfect setting – it was genuinely better than anything we could have dreamed of. Your flexibility and enthusiasm made planning a delight.”
B&C, July 2021
Brides and grooms' words
“We are so grateful for all your running around, veil tossing, dress holding and just general brilliance. Both our families commented how brilliant it was to have you just bringing everything together on the day (particularly for emergency water trips, searches for lost phones and soothing difficult taxi drivers).”
“Firstly, I just wanted to thank you for everything you did for us on our day. You went above and beyond to ensure that everything ran smoothly, and everyone I have spoken to has commented on how brilliant you were on the day and fixed any issues that came up. Nothing was ever too much trouble, and we are sure that our day would not have been as amazing as it was without you.”
Architecture and history of Hale Park
Our collective English history is closely bound up with the architecture of our buildings: particularly the various styles of that umbrella term, Georgian. Anyone who has been to Bath or Bristol amongst others will be familiar with the clean lines and symmetrically placed windows in walls mostly devoid of fussy decoration. This pared back ornamentation and the clean lines of the Georgian aesthetic chimes well with today’s pared back design and minimalism.
The architect of this house was Thomas Archer, of the English Baroque style of Georgian and by 1715 he was very successful. Churches include St.Paul’s Deptford, Birmingham Cathedral , St. John’s, Smith Square London and St.Mary’s Hale. He also designed many houses including the north front of Chatsworth House; Hurstbourne Priors, Hampshire; Chettle House, Dorset and his own home, Hale Park.
In 1770 Henry Holland (junior) was asked to update Hale Park thus adding another major English architect to this house. He added the portico in the front (see Berrington Hall and Broadlands) and the dog-walks on the sides.
