Steeped in history, The Elvetham in Hook is a wonderful wedding venue waiting to be explored

Promotional Feature 

The Elvetham is a stunning family-owned estate set in 35 acres of beautiful grounds. It has a fascinating history as the house was once owned by Jane Seymour's brother, Edward, who hosted Queen Elizabeth I. On her visit in 1591, the Queen planted an oak tree which still stands tall in the grounds today.
