Romantic, elegant and enchanting – everything you want from your wedding venue is everything that Davenport House has to offer. This breathtaking country house in Shropshire is just the place for making your dream wedding a reality.
You’ll find this exquisite setting along a winding drive which cuts through rolling fields and grounds. Davenport House stands proud amid the lush countryside; a magnificent building modelled on the original Buckhingham Palace. You’re bound to have that feeling of royalty when you choose to celebrate here too.
Notes from Davenport House
Step into the house and discover the beauty of the Great Hall. Authentic features sit alongside a contemporary colour scheme, making this a truly unique place for you and your partner to say ‘I do’. With your loved ones all around you and sunlight pouring into this characterful room, there really is nothing quite like it.
If your heart is set on an intimate wedding, the Saloon is for you. Panelled walls and warm marquetry flooring provide plenty of character and you can exchange your vows overlooking the glorious gardens. You can even take your ceremony outside in the warmer months. Take each other’s hand between the impressive pillars at the front of the house as your guests enjoy the sun.
The finest catering is at the heart of everything that Davenport House does, from the drinks reception to the extravagant evening food. Celebrate with cocktails and canapés that will delight your friends and family and spend some time taking in the views, chatting by the pond or exploring the secret garden for the most romantic locations for your wedding photos.
When it’s time for your wedding breakfast, the Drawing Room provides a grand and inviting place to wine and dine. Keep that royal feeling going with banquet-style tables and enjoy a meal that’s completely tailored to your tastes. The talented chefs can create anything from laid-back sharing boards to five-course fine dining, so you can set the mood for your day in any way you want. After everybody’s appetites have been sufficiently sated and the speeches have pulled on the heartstrings, it’s time for the evening reception to get into full swing. Dance the night away in the Great Hall and make some fun-filled memories as you celebrate in style.
After all the festivities, there’s nothing quite like having a comfortable and relaxing space to unwind in. Davenport House’s Honeymoon Suite is exactly that, with a huge bed, a private dressing room and luxurious bathroom, all finished with an elegant décor.
There are a further three bedrooms in the house for your loved ones, while the charming cottages in the grounds mean your guests won’t have far to go to relax at the end of the night.
