Catering from 20 up to 180 wedding breakfast guests, and up to 250 evening guests. There are plenty of wedding venues in Somerset to choose from, so what makes our hotel a fantastic choice? This 3 star Edwardian Country House is a great venue for small intimate weddings, large receptions and civil wedding ceremonies. The hotel's ballroom (the largest in the area) can seat up to 250 guests for a wedding reception venue and there are 4 licensed rooms where a civil wedding ceremony can take place. Guests can stay in one of our 23 individually furnished en-suite bedrooms. We understand that every wedding is different.

We'll get involved from the initial planning stages right through to the big day itself. Our aim is to make your wedding day as special as it can be while alleviating some of the stresses along the way. The Ballroom has a built in music system. Musical preferences can be catered for throughout your ceremony. We would be delighted to recommend a local harpist or musicians for your guests' enjoyment. Civil wedding ceremonies usually last around 20 minutes. To help your day run smoothly, the hotel offers a complimentary master of ceremonies. Once your ceremony is over, the Ballroom is re-set for the wedding breakfast.

Everything was completely perfect
We got married here back in March and I really can’t explain how brilliant all the staff were and not forgetting Simon who was brilliant and helped us gain everything we wanted out of our special day with family and friends. The day flowed so well and that was due to the staff! All so helpful and attentive. Everything was completely perfect. I would completely recommend The Shrubbery Hotel. Thank you again Simon and his team!

it was perfect
Got married here on the 8th July and it was perfect! Julia had worked so hard for me. Any questions I would email her (which ended up most days towards the end) and she would get right back to me. I wasn't able to set up the morning of the day so the staff did it for me and it was perfect!! It looked a million times better than I had imagined! Me and my husband had the best day ever and would highly recommend anyone to get married here. The food, the drink, the staff, the atmosphere, everything was spot on! All my guests have felt the same. Thank you Julia to you and all your staff. I still can't believe what an amazing day we had!! Xxxx
