Everybody commented on how fabulous everything was
We just wanted to briefly say an enormous thank you to all of you for going over and above on Saturday. The food was better than we could have possibly imagined and the effort that went into it was evident. Everybody commented on how fabulous everything was, including one ‘best meal I’ve ever had’ comment so please send our thanks to the chef and pass on the glowing praise. It was honestly unforgettable and you were all fantastic. Jo, you’re amazing.

'Perfect Wedding'
Dear Hollie and Jo and the Shilstone Team. Thank you so much for all your help and advice and hard work in planning and executing the ‘Perfect Wedding’ for our daughter Olivia and her husband Nick! It was such a special day for all of us and all the hard work certainly paid off. The compliments haven’t stopped flowing in about how beautiful Shilstone is and how wonderfully discreet and helpful the staff were. I cannot believe how lucky we were with the weather, it was a true wedding miracle! Many thanks again to you all.

We both fell in love with Shilstone
We had our wedding at Shilstone back in August and we cannot thank the entire team enough. From the first meeting to the big day they couldn’t do enough for us. We both fell in love with Shilstone within 10 minutes of arriving back in January 2018 on our first visit and we just knew it was where we wanted to celebrate our marriage. Hollie and the team leading up to the day were always on hand to answer questions and help me when I was having a moment. They also kept our secret entertainment from everyone including my husband. On the big day itself, things didn’t go to plan with my wedding car but everyone at Shilstone made sure the rest of the day ran like clockwork. Tara was there waiting for us and helped (me especially) calm down and was so reassuring. The staff were fantastic in every aspect of the day. Everyone from the second we arrived even till now still comments on the day and how beautiful the venue was. We would both highly recommend Shilstone House to anyone because for us it was everything we dreamt of. Special thanks to Sebastian, Hollie, Tara, Dave and Jo you made our day a day we will never forget. We hope we can one day return. From Mr and Mrs Preece x

The most incredible wedding venue!
The most incredible wedding venue! We wish we could do it all over again! From start to finish Shilstone’s wedding team were so efficient and made us feel so relaxed at all times. Our wedding day was perfect and we could not have asked for any more. Shilstone went above and beyond to create a perfect day for us. The grounds are just breathtaking, the food was delicious and plenty of it! We fell in love with Shilstone the minute we pulled up to view it. Thank you to all the staff for providing us with such a perfect day! We can not fault anything so. Thank you 🙂
