Small but Perfectly Formed
WEEKDAY HIRE FROM £825 FOR 4 HOURS · NO MINIMUM NO. GUESTS
How special a wedding is has nothing to do with its size, but everything to do with the presence of those you love most. If you have an elopement, micro or small wedding in mind, we hope that our weekday wedding offering at Homme will allow you to hold an intimate wedding celebration in the beautiful surroundings of our family home, with no minimum number of guests and the option to extend the four hour hire period as required allowing you to tailor the hire period to suit your vision for the day.
Homme’s elegant reception rooms provide plenty of space for celebrating with friends and family, but in a homely environment with the flexibility of different spaces to ensure a seamless flow and intimate feel to the day.
Exclusive use of Homme’s reception rooms, Main Suite and gardens is offered for a 4 hour hire period, which can be extended as required between the hours of 10am and 12am. Note that this offer is available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays excluding the period between mid December and New Year, and does not include Registrar fees.
FLAT FEE OF 1 HOUR FOR MORNING PREPARATIONS PRIOR TO MAIN HIRE PERIOD
The Main Suite, with its light and spacious bedroom, en suite bathroom and adjacent Drawing Room, provides an ideal space for preparations on the morning of the wedding. A flat fee of 1 hour is charged for any preparations on the morning of the wedding prior to the main hire period.
HALL · PANELLED ROOM · DINING ROOM · SUMMERHOUSE
Homme has four spaces licensed for civil ceremonies, providing a range of options depending on the size of the group, weather and time of year.
For elopements and micro weddings the main Hall, with the backdrop of its flying staircase, and the upper chamber of our Walled Garden Summerhouse provide intimate settings for your vows. For larger groups the Panelled Room in the house, main lawn and Walled Garden all provide beautiful settings for the ceremony.
ST. BARTHOLOMEW’S CHURCH · LESS THAN A MILE TO ‘I DO’
St. Bartholomew’s is conveniently situated at the end of the parkland drive just 1000m from Homme, a lovely walk or short drive from the house. The church is very welcoming to couples resident outside the parish, and would simply ask that you attend one service a month for six months in the build up to your wedding.
NO CORKAGE · 5 ACRES OF GARDENS TO EXPLORE
The house and grounds provide myriad options for a wedding reception. The main lawn, upper lawn, rose garden and Summerhouse lawn are all options for reception drinks, with plenty of other areas for photographs and for guests to enjoy.
We offer all our couples complete corkage-free flexibility on drink choices, allowing you to source and enjoy exactly what you would like to drink on your wedding day.
The Wedding Breakfast
MENU OPTIONS WITH FREEDOM TO CHOOSE ANY CATERER
If you have a sit down meal in mind, the main lawn offers a beautiful space for dining al fresco, whether banqueting, hay bale or picnic style. In the house both the main Dining Room and the Panelled Room are available, with the option of banqueting style seating, a u-shaped arrangement or individual dining tables to suit your guest numbers and plans. Alternatively you might prefer to relax in comfort in the Library to enjoy an afternoon tea with close family and friends.
For weekday weddings we provide the option of partnering with a caterer who offers various set price menus for a wedding reception style of your choice, from a canapé reception (from £12 per guest) to an afternoon tea (from £14.40 per guest) or full wedding breakfast (from £36 per guest).
FLEXIBLE BAR OPTIONS · SLEEP UP TO 32 AT HOMME
If you plan to have an evening celebration music and dancing takes place inside the house, with the Panelled Room, Hall and Dining Room all options. The Library, with its open fire, provides a comfy space in which guests can relax, while the front of the house is perfect if you have street food, sparklers or fire bowls in mind.
If you would prefer not to provide all the drinks for your wedding day, we can arrange a pay bar for the evening reception, for which prices are matched to local Herefordshire pubs.
And at the end of the celebrations with guest accommodation for up to 32 at Homme, there is plenty of space should you wish to stay here at Homme across the period of your ‘small but perfectly formed’ wedding.
