The most incredible wedding venue! We wish we could do it all over again! From start to finish Shilstone’s wedding team were so efficient and made us feel so relaxed at all times. Our wedding day was perfect and we could not have asked for any more. Shilstone went above and beyond to create a perfect day for us. The grounds are just breathtaking, the food was delicious and plenty of it! We fell in love with Shilstone the minute we pulled up to view it. Thank you to all the staff for providing us with such a perfect day!

Shilstone House has been amazing from the very beginning! Not only a stunning venue in very well looked after grounds I could not fault the staff in any way. The support from the very beginning was fantastic. Lovely Hollie and Jo did everything they possibly could to take away the stress of wedding planning and were so efficient and helpful I could not thank them enough. They tailored our day to exactly what we wanted. We had the best day of our lives when we got married at Shilstone on Friday. I could not have imagined getting married anywhere else. Huge special thank you to Laura, who was simply wonderful all day, Jo and Dave who were always on hand and of course to Sebastian! Also, all the bar staff who were on top form all night and were simply fantastic! I want to come back and do it all again!

There are no words to describe just how wonderful our day was at Shilstone, but we’ll give it a go! The entire team completely exceeded all expectations. From the planning stages, receiving an instant reply to every email we sent, to answering all questions and providing information that I didn’t even know I needed, through to the pack up the following morning, every single person at Shilstone was more helpful and accommodating than we could have ever asked for. Everything was so slick on the day of the wedding. The accommodation was beautiful, spacious and so well maintained. The bridal room has been thought out so well, with the light-up stations and super large full length mirror, it was perfect! My dad was blown away at how coordinated the traffic was, from the staff directing cars, stopping them so my dad could pass in his truck, and helping with directions. I was in awe watching the service of your waiting team. Having worked for a Michelin starred property, I’m always super impressed when a venue/restaurant nails service and you guys absolutely smashed it. One of the most exciting parts of the wedding breakfasts was watching all the waiting staff put the plates down on the table at the exact same time! The food was fantastic and people especially went crazy for the pasties! The venue is just beautiful, even in the pouring rain there was still plenty of space for our guests to be sheltered and for us to have some perfect and picturesque photos to be taken. There’s so much more I could say and I would do anything to be able to relive it all again and again. We cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work and professionalism, it was executed just seamlessly and made it a completely stressfree day for us both. We are so thrilled to have found Shilstone House and honoured to have hosted the most magical day of our lives there.

We are so pleased that we chose to have our wedding at Shilstone. We could not have chosen a better place for what was the best day of our lives. The team were absolutely amazing. So helpful, reassuring, flexible and professional and we felt we could trust them on all the details. So much thought has gone into the smooth running of the day and to make it special. The food was delicious. The views so beautiful. Thank you for all your hard work!
Matilda & Fred
We have so many thank yous that I don’t know where to start. The whole day was perfect! Firstly, we’d like to thank everyone who made the day run so smoothly on Saturday. They were incredible! Everyone commented on how polite, well-organised and efficient the staff were. They were on hand for everything – topping up drinks, serving the guests, making sure everyone was ok and bringing Jonno and I our canapés. Please pass a personal thank you to: Jo, who kept everything running to time on Saturday and for being there on Friday to run through the day with us. I felt so calm handing everything over. Tara, who was an amazing front of house waitress! Laura, who made sure the cocktails were being handed around and for checking our tables during the food. Dave, who organised the car park and made sure all our guests knew where to go. Mr Fenwick, for opening the marquee early on Saturday for Dad to position the cake and flowers. The kitchen staff and cooks as the food was incredible! The salmon, beef and potatoes were incredible and the chocolate pot! Delicious! Everyone loved the food and it was really delicious! Finally, to you Hollie. Without your guidance, support and emails Saturday would not have gone as smoothly as it did. You listened and understood everything we spoke about. You were so accommodating when I emailed with various requests or questions. So thank you so much! Shilstone will always hold a very special place in our hearts and we were so grateful that we found a venue that could provide what we wanted for our wedding.
