Loughborough Wedding Venue: Nanpantan Hall
I first heard about Nanpantan Hall when, last year, I received an e-mail from Jess & Matt asking me to photograph their wedding here in the summer of 2017. Being the inquisitive sort, I looked the venue up on Google and found out that it had only recently opened its doors for weddings.
I’m always keen to find out more about new wedding venues near me, so I got in touch with Ruby (the fantastic wedding co-ordinator here) and arranged to pop along, have a chat, see a bit more of the venue and take some photos.
A Brief History
For those of you who are interested, the hall was built in the late 1800s and was lived in by a number of wealthy families from Loughborough over the years. During the first world war, it was used as a hospital and a centre for training horses to be used in combat.
In the 1980s when the last family member living here died, the house was inherited by one of their descendants, who donated the estate to the School of Economic Science who maintain use of the estate to the present day.
The House and Grounds
The house is a wonderfully preserved old building, with lovely wooden floors throughout the downstairs and plenty of huge windows flooding the rooms with light. It’s definitely a refreshing change to some of the darker interiors of stately homes.
The grounds are just one of the many reasons that make this a perfect venue if you want to stamp your identity all over your wedding. As well as the ceremony room indoors, you can also have a tipi or marquee in the grounds for the wedding breakfast and evening do.
On either side of the rear lawn are lush woodlands with winding paths through them. So your guests will have plenty of places to explore and there’s some great options for photographs.
