It can be a traditional style Memorial Service or something different. Our staff will help you to create a fitting and uplifting event.

Here at Heskin Hall we provide a beautiful setting and a sympathetic reception to your and your loved ones needs

Celebration of Life Ceremony

Our staff help you create a ceremony and memorial celebration. We can take the ceremony for you if you wish. Alternatively perhaps a family member wants to do it. Maybe a friend or even a professional celebrant may be involved. There are many options and we can guide you through the process sympathetically.
Our Panelled Ceremony Room is a beautiful setting but you don’t have to use it if you want something less formal. We can go outside if the weather is fine and it is attractive to you as an option.

The Wake

It is traditional to provide some kind of catering at these events. That does not mean that you have to stick to a set style however. Have a light buffet for example ( all most people feel they want) or we can look at dishes that were and are important to you, the deceased or your family.

Enjoy our Fully licensed and reasonably priced bar & that is widely stocked as well as tea and coffee on hand


We have flexible packages for most budgets that start at £8pp

Currently gatherings are still restricted with regard to numbers ( see household rules ). Things are changing quickly. So there is hope we can soon have larger get togethers.

Post Covid 19 Weddings

Post covid 19 weddings are a hot question for many people. It’s made the news with many people being forced to cancel theirs.

Things are moving forward now and as we have decades of experience in the field we are being asked for our thoughts on this.

Lots of couples have a picture of their wedding day already in their heads. Some do not. Others have found their values and ideas have changed over the past few months . We have all had to face issues we could never have anticipated and it has made many people reevaluate what is important.

For every problem there is an answer.

So if you want to get married what should you do ?

Our 5 point guide

1.Decide what is important to you

Is the idea in your head fixed? Can you be adaptable or has it changed?
If you are stuck in the minds set of a pre covid celebration then delaying your day may be best. No one knows how this will go but next year seems more likely to be for you. Be aware however that dates for next year are subject to a lot of competition. It is because of this you should look at Booking as soon as possible.

Have your priorities have changed? Were you always adaptable in your plans? In this case this current situation may even be a problem you can turn to your advantage. Prices for Post Covid 19 weddings later this year will be available at great prices because many have moved their big weddings and suppliers are looking for business to fill the gaps.

2. Going ahead in 2020

No doubt you have many good reasons for your choice. Have you already booked and you don’t want to change? Do you want to get on with life? What you feel is important for you could be to have the security of being married.

Large social events are unlikely to be able to go ahead until later in the year or early next year. There is as yet no firm guidance.

Have a plan B. Some of our couples who have already booked with us have chosen to have a small daytime event this year with close family and friends and a larger evening one next year. We are happy to offer this option to new bookings too with the option to have both this year if and when we can.

If you have not yet booked and have always wanted to have a small intimate wedding then why not grab a great budget deal with both venue and other suppliers.

Take a look at our Seize the Day Package for an example of how this can be done https://heskinhall.com/seize-the-day-wedding/

Look at venues with lots of outdoor space. This too could be helpful. We have fabulous grounds you can enjoy

3. Consider your Guests

Do you have any older or more “at risk “ guests? If so the smaller the number of people attending the less the risk for them. Many venues like ours can offer social distancing measures that will allow them to attend the ceremony and even the wedding breakfast in a way that minimises the risk to them

Alternatively take the more “Techy” option of live streaming, Zoom etc.. Save copies of the Order of Service , cake and favours for those who cannot attend.
These modern solutions area great help if you have guests who had been intending to make the trip from abroad.

4. Get Insurance

If you have not booked yet the you should buy insurance when you do. Check the small print and ask probing questions about the cover.

5. Keep Talking

We all know this is a constantly changing situation. Keep in communication with your venue and your suppliers.

They can help you. Each has expertise in their own arena. Ask them . Do not sit at home worrying

6. Stay Positive

Keep positive. Things usually happen for a reason ( that’s not a platitude it really is often true).

As a venue we are always happy to be on hand to discuss your concerns and any changes that you want or need to make. We have decades of experience – take advantage of it.
Be confident in the knowledge that you love one another. You will get married. You will have a great day.

There are always options. Look at alternatives. family, friends and suppliers all want to help you .

Your wedding will be all the more memorable for all of this.

Post Covid 19 Weddings

Seize The Day Wedding

These are strange times.

SEIZE THE DAY WEDDING – A Wedding ready to be enjoyed

If we have all learnt anything it is that time is precious and so are our loved ones. Why not have a Seize The day Wedding ?

You may have thought about getting married but worry about the planning aspect. We can help.

The situation is changing rapidly. At the moment we know get togethers are limited but things are opening up quite quickly. We will probably however, all have to be adaptable for some time. That does not mean you cannot have a beautiful wedding as soon as any loosening of lockdown regulations allow.

Where do I start ?

Why not use our expertise and contacts here at Heskin Hall to good use?

We have put together a team of super local suppliers and have thought how things are likely to be over the next 6 months at least.

Together we have created an adaptable package. Starting small and beautiful with the ability to change as circumstances allow.

Celebrate your love with your closest friends & family . All you will need to add is the Registrar (or Celebrant), rings, guests and yourselves dressed to your best .

The Package

Included :

  1. Exclusive use of our Function suite & the use of our grounds for photography from 10am -6pm.
  2. The choice of the use of either a VW from Warrens Vintage VW or a car from Malvern cars *
  3. Photography by Alporline photography *
  4. A wedding cake* from a local cake supplier *
  5. Red Carpet on arrival (weather permitting)
  6. A Ceremony in our beautiful Ceremony room between 12noon – 2pm
  7. Chair covers and bows on aisle chairs to colour chosen by you
  8. A Celebratory drink of Pimms or Bucks Fizz served to your guests whilst you enjoy your photography
  9. your choice of either a 3 course Wedding Breakfast (Bronze Menu) or an Afternoon tea with our vintage china
  10. All table linen, glassware, crockery & cutlery
  11. Bows on chairs and some other venue decoration such as chair covers
  12. Topiary at the front door
  13. Fairy lights & lanterns on our Garden Terrace
  14. A glass of sparkling wine for the Toast

*Terms & conditions/ limitations apply

The Price Of our Seize The a Day Wedding

The price of this for up to 40- 50 guests is £3000. Inbuilt in this must be flexibility as we are not currently sure how many people will be allowed at events in the future. This is our best guess. Should it be possible to have more guests then if course we can add to this.

We could also add an evening event with a larger guest list ( if this becomes possible). You can “bolt this on “ for up to a total 80 guests at an extra £1000 including a light supper. A DJ would be an extra £200.

Should your budget be fixed but regulations open up your celebration to greater numbers earlier than thought then we can look at other options such as a more relaxed later start (something based on our Twilight package – see brochure) .

Dates are limited – please contact for more detailshttp://warrensvintagevw.co.uk/ & https://www.malvernweddingcars.co.uk/
