Full Description
An enchanting country estate and family residence, Davenport House is exclusively yours on your special day. Set amidst picturesque Shropshire countryside, this idyllic Georgian house was extensively refurbished in 2017. Now you can step inside this magical venue and make yourself at home, celebrating your wedding day surrounded by its history, warmth and elegance. Entering this great house through the magnificent double doors, you might choose to say ‘I do’ in The Great Hall. Brimming with character, this is the very heart of the home and the perfect place in which to say your vows. Alternatively, marry in another of the great rooms, or between the pillars on the front steps of Davenport House for a truly unique setting. The Great Hall leads through to the beautiful Saloon with its marquetry floor. It is here that you might enjoy welcome drinks and canapés along with breathtaking views over the lawns beyond. Outside, the terrace, lily pond and secluded secret garden provide a sublime setting in which to mingle with a glass of fizz on warmer days. The Drawing Room lures your guests in to dine, with original panelling painted in elegant ‘tea green’. The specialist on-site wedding event planners and expert caterers will work closely with you to help create the most spectacular day, complete with stunning wedding food and drink. As day turns to evening, The Great Hall becomes your dance floor, while guests might also choose to relax in The Saloon or The Drawing Room. Four luxurious en-suite bedrooms, including a plush honeymoon suite and impressive breakfast area, are located in the main house, while four cottages in the grounds offer self-catering accommodation. A further cottage, The Stable, is offered as your bridal preparation area. From intimate to lavish, and from contemporary style to the more traditional, Davenport House is your country estate that can make your dream wedding a reality.

We can't thank you enough
Dear Lizzie, Joe, Dawn and all, We are just wanting to thank you again for all you did to make Amy and Josh's wedding day such a magical occasion. Through all the ups and downs and uncertainty of the past 12 months or so, your thoughtful, can-do, encouraging attitude has been such a help. At a time when the news has featured sad stories of couples losing their deposits, lack of cooperation from venues, etc, our experience with you has been the polar opposite - you have been a hugely valuable member of team Amy & Josh, and we can't thank you enough. Please pass on our thanks to all of your staff, the ladies who keep everything so spotless, the catering staff - wow - what a job they did! The firework people, and many more behind the scenes. Each and every one of you - your warmth, artistry, and attention to detail helped to make it a day we will never be able to think about without smiling. Our heartfelt thanks to you all. Richard and Kim

Such a special Venue
Thank you so much for helping us create our perfect wedding day. Davenport House is such a special venue and the food was incredible. Our family and friends are still talking about what a wonderful day they had. Our family said staying overnight in the onsite cottages felt like a real holiday, and you were so accommodating. Thank you for making the whole wedding planning experience so straight forward and relaxed. Who ever said wedding planning is stressful clearly didn’t get married at Davenport! Thank you x

FAQ
(10)

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

All of them!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Ask as many questions as you need. Feeling comfortable on the day is one of the most important, and often most overlooked, parts of your day. So don't be afraid to ask questions! If you're worried about anything then we are here to help and we would much rather ease any concerns you have than have you stressed on the day!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

It is always lovely to see couples paying tribute to their parent's weddings. For example, a part of the mother of the bride's dress reused, or the jewellery. I had a groom who wore his father cufflinks and it really spurred quite an emotional reaction, it's such a small gesture but so meaningful!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Stylish, chic, contemporary, relaxed and timeless

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Truly, every part of Davenport House is instagram gold, however I think the staircase is pretty iconic!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We have and it was so exciting! Sadly, we can't say who...

What’s your favourite canapé?

Tom Kerridge's beef and Ale pies! Yes, they are one of the most delicious things we've ever eaten.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Would you judge us if we said pork pies?

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Our after hours lounge is a bit of a special treat! Once the main party has finished you and your VIPs are invited upstair into the evening lounge, we can provide a bar and food which means you and your guests can wind down in your own time!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The relationships we have with our couples. We love that our couples come back to visit us, we even have a secret rose garden where we plant a rose on each couples 1st anniversary, it means you always have a reason to come and visit us and we love it!
