It’s been an amazing year at Penton Park, not only have we been fully booked, but amazingly we’ve been winning awards!
First up was the Venus Awards which recognises women in business – we were awarded Best Small Business in Hampshire, which was a huge accolade. Secondly and more industry specific was The Wedding Industry Awards (TWIA) for best Countryside Venue in the South and Central Region! This is a huge award to have won and we follow on from some really amazing venues – huge thanks to each and every couple that voted for us in this award.
Finally, while we were pretty much hanging out on Cloud Nine thinking wow that’s just the best news, we then found out that we were listed by The Evening Standard, as one of the top 30 Wedding Venues to marry at in the UK in 2018.

Not only did they include us they also called us a “truly a hidden gem” that is “perfect for fun couples seeking a stunning Hampshire setting” says it all really!
So this month we are taking a bit of time, yes to drink a bit of Champagne to toast all this amazing news, but also to reflect on the journey we have had… several years ago we set ourselves a goal of being one of the best (if not the best) venues in the country. We decided the best way to go about this was to do our very best to try and make sure every couple had a truly special experience, and really felt that they were at an exclusive venue that cared about their big day – no treadmill experience here!
Based on all of these awards, along with our superb ratings on Facebook we feel confident we are on the right path – so whilst we take a little bit of time to reflect and toast our success it’s fair to say we are now totally fired up ready for an amazing 2018, 2019 and beyond!
