From the grandest wedding to a small intimate gathering, Avington Park provides a delightful setting for a wedding ceremony or a reception. This beautiful and imposing family home has been granted a licence to hold civil wedding ceremonies, enabling the bride and bridegroom to enjoy their wedding and reception at the same idyllic venue. At Avington we only offer exclusive use, so it really is yours for the day.  Approach through wrought iron gates, down the lime tree avenue by the River Itchen and sweep round to the elegant façade. Guests may be greeted in the magnificently painted hall, where in winter, log fires provide a warm welcome. In summer extensive lawns provide a delightful setting for a drinks reception before sitting down to a sumptuous wedding breakfast in the library.  The library can hold 175 guests for a drinks reception, or 100 for a silver service wedding breakfast. For larger wedding parties a marquee may be used adjoining the library.  This glorious venue provides unique opportunities for photographs both inside and out.
