    The Waveny House proved to be the most perfect, unique, and breathtaking location for our wedding. We held our ceremony in the walled garden- my walk down to the garden felt so beautiful. The house itself and the outdoor terrace allowed for the most fun cocktail hour and easy flow. We even used the grounds to take pictures both early in the day and later at night. We didn't do a formal sit down since the separate rooms kept guests apart. But once everyone ate, the mingling continued! We kept the dancing going inside all night long, the bar we put outside so people could get some air and had easy access to their next drink! The breakfast nook off to the side was the best location for dessert. Our final exit in the overhang was fun and epic. Our supervisor provided by the Waveny was extremely helpful, making sure only guests were in our area. He was so helpful and positive all night long. We can't wait to return here for years to come reliving our day.

    We had our wedding at The Waveny House and it was amazing! Our guests loved the mansion and how old it was. The ceremony was in the walled garden and was absolutely beautiful. Our reception was inside and we loved how nice it looked! We had so many options to take pictures outside and they came out great!

    Originally we planned an outside wedding but due to the inclement weather we had to move the wedding inside. But what was lovely about this venue is that its inside is as gorgeous as its outside. Bringing in our own vendors was fun but can be very pricey if you don't discipline yourself. It got a little hot because of the lack of AC but that might have been more because of all the dancing that was occurring. The staff was very professional and very easy
