Couples tell us time and time again how happy they were on their special day, surrounded by their friends and family at Radnor Hunt. This romantic haven is well-known across Philadelphia for its rustic charm, elegant ballrooms and natural landscape.

Every single one of the brides and grooms who has graced Radnor Hunt with their love has transformed the venue and made it entirely their own for a day. We offer comfortable, versatile spaces—all three of which are included with your venue rental— that can accommodate small to large-scale receptions and ceremonies alike.

Not only is every space itself customizable, but so is everything that comes with the venue, including the menus. Our exclusive caterer, J. Scott Catering, tailors every drink and piece of food to fit your experience. We trust their expert team to put together menus for couples that showcase culinary innovation, farm-fresh ingredients and inventive cuisines.

With so many options, we understand that menu customization is a lot to take in. Here are some of our most popular plated wedding menu ideas that you can use for inspiration:

Passed Hors d’ Oeuvres

For your menu, consider passed hors d’oeuvres that offer an explosion of fresh herbs and mouthwatering flavors. We couldn’t pick just one selection of hors d’oeuvres, so here are our favorite selections that were used at three recent weddings:

  • All Beef SlidersTopped with mushroom and Swiss
  • Barbeque Braised Short RibOn Yukon chip
  • Seared Sesame Tuna CubesSoy ginger dipping sauce
  • Kennett Square Mushroom TurnoverFontina, gruyere and fresh herbs

  • Vietnamese Chicken Spring RollTamarind dipping sauce

  • bridal party outside radnor hunt
    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!

    My husband and I could not have been happier with our choice to have our wedding at Radnor Hunt in October. It was the first venue we looked at, and I immediately knew I wanted our ceremony and reception to be here. The venue is beautiful and very well maintained.
