Located in the heart of the West Midlands in Worcestershire, Stanbrook Abbey sits beneath the Malvern Hills surrounded by 26 acres of extensive gardens. The venue is located five miles from Worcester and Worcester Foregate Street train station and is easily accessible from the M5.
Worcestershire is a place of great contrasts from picturesque villages and lively towns to woodland, fertile river valleys and luscious fruit orchards. The county is bathed in history and holds plenty of significant buildings and museums to discover with Stanbrook Abbey sitting amongst them.
Originally built as a contemplative house for Benedictine nuns, Stanbrook Abbey dates back to the early 16th century and is completely unique. Its historic past lives on through original architecture – dramatic stone cloisters and gothic stained-glass windows complimented by indulgent touches and modern luxury interiors.
The Callow Great Hall is the former chapel of the abbey and is a stunning setting for your traditional wedding ceremony. The Garden Pavilion is located just a stone’s throw away from the Willow Lake and is a beautiful open space which provides you with your own private garden for your evening party.
One of the most standout features of Stanbrook Abbey has to be the Bride’s Manor – a Georgian style manor house linked to the Abbey via a cloister, with it’s own private access, Bride’s parlour and dressing rooms, drawing room and five bedrooms – a perfect place to prepare for your wedding day.
Having been married 10 years, my wife and I wanted to share our celebrations with family and friends and to also show the best of our relocation to Worcester. Having been made aware of Stanbrook Abbey by friends we were very quickly sold on the beauty and setting of the venue. This was matched both in advance by Caylie and her team and on the day by Clyde who were fantastic and left no detail unchecked – all we really needed to do was turn up! I cannot recommenced Stanbrook Enough as a venue for weddings and other celebrations and will cherish the memories of the day.

We had the most amazing day and we have the whole team at Stanbrook to thank for that. A number of our guests said it was the best wedding venue they had ever been too and I’m sure will be booking for afternoon teas and weekends away soon!

Absolutely magical! We got married at Stanbrook Abbey in March 2020 and everything was fantastic. Liza and her team worked tirelessly from the moment we signed the contract to the morning after the wedding to ensure everything ran smoothly. Nothing was too much of an effort for them. Liza was phenomenal throughout the planning; every detail was accounted for, even things we, as the bride and groom, hadn’t thought of. On the day of the wedding, Levi and Anna were behind the scenes coordinating every detail and the day flowed seamlessly. We cannot thank them enough for their time, patience, suggestions and support whilst planning the most memorable day of our lives. We would highly recommend Stanbrook as a wedding venue as the location, service and quality is second to none.

Stanbrook Abbey hosted our Wedding Day and we have to say our day was magical. All the staff were very professional and courteous, and we must say that both Caylie and Clyde were exceptional in the service they provided to us, in order to ensure that our Wedding Day was both personal and special to us. So a very big thank you to all at Stanbrook Abbey for an amazing day. We would most definitely recommend Stanbrook Abbey for any couple wishing to get married, as you will have a day to remember.

More than we could ever have imagined… We held our wedding at Stanbrook Abbey and were over the moon with the day! We booked the ‘callow great hall’ package where we had the ceremony and wedding breakfast in the Callow Great Hall which was absolutely stunning and perfect for what we envisaged! The staff we fantastic, with a special mention to Liza and Clyde who co-ordinated and managed our day from start to end. Our guests were all shocked at how beautiful the venue looked and all commented on how perfect everything was. Food was fantastic throughout and we could not fault a single thing. There were some slight renovations going on during the day in another part of the building but this did not impact on our day at all. Overall, our wedding was more than we could ever have imagined and we were impressed with Stanbrook Abbey from the start of the process to the end of our beautiful special day!

We had the most perfect wedding day at Stanbrook Abbey on Saturday 4th May. Our guests were in complete awe at the surroundings and smooth nature of the day, we honestly couldn’t fault anything – it was the wedding of our dreams! We would like to give a big thank you to Caylie and Clyde for their support and help throughout the planning process and throughout the day, they were excellent at tending to all of our wishes and requests. We would also like to thank Roger our MC for allowing the day to run as smoothly as it did and Jodie for helping to set up our beautiful wedding breakfast room. We wish we could do it all over again!
