Check out the iconic Ware Priory

iconic Ware Priory Situated on seven acres of picturesque gardens, Ware Priory is a traditional Grade I listed building with contemporary touches and architecture dating back to Medieval times. 

The main Ware Priory building has many character and historical features, whereas Fletcher’s Lea offers a more contemporary feel. The riverside grounds provide the perfect backdrop to weddings and photography. Here couples will find river life of narrowboats, swans, geese and ducks. The back lawns are well kept and are a great location for drinks, receptions and team-building games, while the wisteria archway offers a beautiful space for those iconic confetti pictures. Situated in what were the cloisters of the original Friary, the Priory Hall can accommodate ceremonies with 100 loved ones. With stained glass windows and a series of French windows that open onto the riverside gardens, the hall is the perfect destination for the “I dos” and receptions with 80 people. 

Alternatively, The Conservatory offers a bright and spacious interior with space to accommodate 100 people for the vows. The area was completely rebuilt during extensive renovations in the mid-1990s and is ideal for wedding breakfasts with 120 people or receptions with 140.  The Hadsley Room, part of the Lady Suite, dates from the 15th-century and boasts a superb example of a crown post roof. The large refectory table used by the registrar to conduct ceremonies dates back to the 14th-century and is believed to be from the original Friary.

The room is named after Robert Hadsley, who purchased the Priory in 1685, and his family owned the estate for the best part of 200 years. The location is now popular for intimate weddings with 40 guests for ceremonies and receptions. Or why not exchange vows in the Riverside Suite with 200 nearest and dearest? Situated within Fletcher’s Lea, the larger suite can host wedding receptions with up to 160 guests for dining and 220 for buffet settings. The standalone building has all the catering and bar facilities needed.
