Originally called the Graydon House, this 1930’s Georgian manor was first built by architects Allan George and Walter Moorehouse for Rupert Bain, a broker/financier. Bain wanted to create a "sportsman's paradise" by completing the 29-room estate with stables for racehorses, kennels for hunting dogs, a 9-hole golf course, and fountains surrounded by spectacular gardens. It became the center for high society life shortly after until it was redesigned into an elegant reception facility in 2000.

A Magical Venue
I cannot say enough good things about Graydon Hall. From the first meeting, they were fantastic about guiding us through the process, and they helped us put together an incredible event. The team at Graydon is truly fantastic. I felt more cared for and at ease than I had ever expected to feel on my wedding day because I knew they were on top of everything. The food was excellent, the venue was gorgeous, and the staff went above and beyond with everything from helping us carry in our bags for getting ready, to keeping drinks full, to helping tear down at the end of the night. The head waiter and bartender introduced themselves to me at the beginning of the night and told me to come to them if I needed ANYTHING. My guests had an amazing time, and people kept coming up to me saying how amazing the venue and staff were, and how our wedding was the best they'd ever been to. I would recommend Graydon in a heartbeat,Sent on 17/12/2019

We were looking to find a wedding venue somewhat centralized to accommodate our guests.
We were sold on the wow factor when you first walk up to the venue.
The driveway slopes uphill and trees (summer time) block most of the house from the street and parking lot. Once close to the front gate, the grandeur of the manor hits you.
We had several meetings with our event coordinator Marissa and she helped us through the process of getting married at Graydon Hall Manor and did an excellent job at pulling everything together on the day of.
There are so many spots on the grounds for great photo opportunities.Sent on 24/12/2019

Professional beginning to after the end!
From our first meeting with our Event Coordinator Melissa, to our multitude of questions by email exchanged over 6 months of planning, to being able to pick up items a few days after our wedding, Graydon Hall Manor staff were superb! Melissa was always there to give us excellent advice, a guiding hand, and quick answers same day. The staff were completely attentive on our wedding day. We and our guests were treated like royalty. Everything was taken care of, including some delightful, unexpected extras, like 'groom' napkins for the 2 newlywed husbands, c/o Mango! Such beautiful touches. The venue itself is just gorgeous. We were lucky to have a sunny day where we made full use of the back terrace and gardens, which are so photogenic. But the inside is equally classy, understated and elegant. Graydon Hall gave us the perfect setting and service we wanted for our special day, and we were not disappointed. We will be forever grateful!Sent on 21/04/2019

Beyond my dreams
The venue and team were like a dream! An absolutely stunning space, well maintained, a flexible and kind team, and delicious catering. I could go on and on about how it exceeded my expectations. The planning team was prompt, patient, kind and made us feel like our ideas and our day were a priority. We enjoyed every moment of the experience and our guests were blown away by the experience. I would highly recommend and would host another event here.Sent on 20/11/2018
