When did Woodhall first begin hosting Jewish & Asian Weddings?

We started hosting multicultural/faith weddings in 2009 and have had many beautiful and vibrant celebrations since.

Why did a traditional, English Country House venue have the idea to start hosting Jewish & Asian weddings?

We found not many venues were catering for this marketplace. Our flexibility, size and facilities meant we could cater for these customers and guests to offer a quality option for their special day.

Do you know if Woodhall is the only venue offering Jewish & Asian weddings in the area?

I think we are the only venue actively encouraging couples from this marketplace. We regularly get enquiries from frustrated couples who are being turned away from other venues.
