The historic Ware Priory offers a venue steeped in atmosphere with period architecture dating back to medieval times. The Priory Hall features gothic stone arches, stained glass windows and has the remnants of a Victorian Trompe-l’oeil. You enter through the Jacobean front door at the corner of the old cloister arcade and then, after the ceremony, meet your guests as newly-weds through a beautiful wisteria archway before entering the Priory Gardens.
For more intimate ceremonies there is the Hadsley Room, with its late-medieval roof beams and crown post roof. The room boats a 14th Century refectory table, which is believed to be a survivor from the original friary.
