Horses at Radnor Hunt

Radnor Hunt, with its sweeping green beauty and historical charm, is a Philadelphia venue that will elevate your wedding vision. Whatever theme you choose to accentuate this piece of heaven on earth, keep in mind that Radnor Hunt comes with an exceptional staff that will work magic to bring it to life.

Remember that themes are just helpful guidelines and can easily be overdone. The true essence of any wedding is that it reflects your distinct style and personality, not anyone else’s. Here are a few ways you could dress Radnor Hunt for your special day:

Country Chic

Think of your typical rustic event, and then glam that up times 100 for your Radnor Hunt wedding. Radnor Hunt’s two ballrooms could easily accommodate finished seating, wooden signage, earthy tones and centerpieces that depict some of the natural life surrounding the property.

Couples can even pose with one of Radnor Hunt’s rental horses.

Couples who choose Radnor Hunt as their wedding day haven will experience 100 acres of meticulously maintained countryside and an additional 6,000 surrounding acres of natural beauty. This will make for some gorgeous photos—and most importantly, long-lasting memories. It’s hard to forget a backdrop like this.

Be sure to set aside some time for pictures by the wooden stable doors and stone walls of the charming farmhouse.

It’s easy to pull off country chic when there’s a farm-to-table menu filled with fresh, local ingredients and all the best seasonal flavors. Our partner J. Scott Catering will design the custom menu that will impress and delight your guests. From drinks to desserts, every aspect of your wedding menu can be filled with the season’s best flavors and colors.

Take a look at the elegant, farm-fresh menu J. Scott Catering put together for Billy and Bernadette’s wedding. The team went above and beyond in accommodating each and every dietary preference and need. Whether you, your partner or any of your guests are interested in vegan or gluten-free options, J. Scott will not only provide you with these dishes, but they will make them just as flavorful, colorful and zesty as the next dish.

What’s so perfect about this theme is how accessible and believable it is. Your guests will appreciate you bringing out the venue’s natural beauty with your own style and details.

 Party like Gatsby

“And I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy.”

― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Gatsby knew the art of a memorable gathering, which is why so many couples have recreated this wedding theme throughout the decades. Radnor Hunt, which was founded in the late 1800s and is the oldest active fox hunt in the United States, could easily be turned into a glamorous flapper party. Break out the shimmery dresses, feathered headbands, suspenders and fedoras.

The ideas for décor are endless—champagne glass towers, gold and black color schemes, beaded and feathered centerpieces, vintage serving ware and glassware.

This is a theme that will bring out a fun side of your guests and liven up any reception.

Royal Wedding Reception

Many prominent families of Philadelphia have frequented Radnor Hunt for horseracing and other sportsmanship events. Playing off these details in your invitations would be a fun way to let people know they’re attending a venue where they will be treated like royalty.

Invite people to your royal wedding! On your wedding invitations, tell guests they’re invited to
your “grand ball.” Then start dreaming of the gold accents you’d like to put on Radnor Hunt’s beautiful spaces and architecture.

The grand ballroom is our go-to for royalty-inspired dinners. Large, intricate centerpieces, white linens, throne-style seating—you could even do a photo booth that includes some crowns, capes, tiaras and other royal props for guests to try on for size.

    I got married at Radnor Hunt in July and it was exceptional. My family and I had looked a few venues before Radnor, but once we were there, we all were blown away by the landscape. We worked with Amy through J Scott Catering, and they made everything so easy for us. Leading up to the wedding, they were so organized that it took a lot of pressure off of me!
