Dream Wedding
Our wedding at Compton Verney was an absolute dream for us. We were so pleased that the Chapel was licensed so we could use it for our civil ceremony - it really was a stunning setting. The Compton Verney team were extremely professional on the day and a number of our guests commented on how delightful they were. Anona ensured that our day ran smoothly and seamlessly, and we were able to fully enjoy the day without worrying about any of the details. An amazing wedding venue, with so many lovely memories. Thank you!

Beautiful venue, with a fantastic team on hand to deliver our dream day
When we initially looked at Compton Verney we were blown away by how stunning it is as a venue, with the chapel available for civil ceremonies it seemed too good to be true. Our only reservation was that being such a fab venue, they might restrict our choices, or not be very personal but we soon realised this was not true at all. The venue staff are all fantastic, from the sales manager, wedding planner and head of catering who were always available to help us plan our day, right through to all the people who help on the actual day and cannot do enough to make sure you have the best day ever and can just step back and not even lift a finger. The venue were great at helping our ideas come to life and supported our ideas making them all possible. The catchphrase I came to love was “yes, we can do that”. They also suggested areas they could help, but never put pressure on us to buy anything extra. I felt like the day was in safe hands well in advance. The day itself was fantastic, the food was outstanding and the day flowed so smoothly, thanks to the hard work and politeness and friendliness of all of the staff- thank you all so much!

Amazing Venue, sup par lead up!
The venue is out of this world, simply beautiful and unique. A must for art lovers. The staff on the day ran our event like clock work and the food was amazing. Unfortunately we had a very stressful and poor experience in the lead up. Several staff changes at the venue and very poor communication on their behalf.

At Compton Verney...
At Compton Verney, we were allowed to feel like no request was too big, too silly or too much trouble throughout the process, which was really important to us. Other venues we looked round in the area were far less accommodating. All the while, we felt we were in the hands of consummate, experienced professionals and trusted all the staff complicity, with good reason. We were always made to feel welcome and never begrudged for making the team stay late/ start early.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

It is difficult to chose the best, there are 3 wedding coordinators and we would all chose a different wedding! My personal favourite was one of our smallest weddings. Our lovely bride got ready next door and I collected her for her interview in Women's Library having chaperoned her groom to the chapel! The most intimate ceremony took place in our beautiful Chapel before they rang the bell as we directed guests outside ready for the confetti exit. Drinks and canapes followed, beside the lake in the glorious sunshine and the party of 40 then had their wedding breakfast in our beautiful Naples Gallery. We opened the doors into Adam Hall which we had set for dancing, they cut the cake on the starlit floor and the best band had them all dancing for hours! During the band break, fireworks, fire eaters and dancers entertained guests in the courtyard, they used every part of our stunning venue and it was such a joy to work! I have some gorgeous photographs that I love to bring out!
