05 Aug Dewsall Court Weddings
Having recently filmed a wedding video at Dewsall Court I felt compelled to let you all know what a fantastic wedding venue it is.
Natasha and Justyn married there this summer and the setting was absolutely beautiful. Dewsall, situated between Hereford and Ross-on-Wye, is an exclusive-use venue, really versatile and can be tailored to suit your particular style and taste. They have plenty of space for guests to enjoy without feeling cooped up in one area.
As a setting for wedding photography and wedding videos, it’s breath-taking. From the architecture to the gardens, all exquisitely maintained and manicured, the backdrop couldn’t be better.
The team there were brilliant and looked after everyone on the day, I know Natasha and Justyn we’re really pleased with their choice.

Origins of Dewsall Court
The house was built in 1644 by Richard Pearle, who lived with his family at Dewsall for over 100 years. It was the birth place of the colourful 1st Duke of Chandos (1673 – 1744), who was stupendously rich and a great patron of the arts. He was a major patron of the composer Handel and the poet Alexander Pope who wrote a satirical poem about him. He also became Paymaster General but later in life, due to a very indulgent lifestyle, he lost all his money and went bankrupt.
This had a major impact on the fortunes of Dewsall Court. It was owned by Guys Hospital for over 300 years. As a result, one of the treasures of the house – a painting called The Judgement of Paris in the manner of Lely, which was mentioned by Pevsner – now hangs in the boardroom of Guy’s Hospital in London.
It’s said that important paintings from The National Gallery were stored at Dewsall for protection during the Second World War.
