Full Description
Built on the site of Warden Abbey, a monastery founded in the time of the Doomsday book, stands the former home of the Shuttleworth family. A 5000 acre site in the heart of rural Bedfordshire, with rolling parkland vistas and steeped in compelling history, the Shuttleworth estate offers an extraordinary setting for weddings and celebrations all year round. From smaller, more intimate ceremonies to opulent gatherings of up to 1000 guests, Shuttleworth has a choice of three stunning venues to make your day unique and memorable. The House and Parkland offer an unrivalled wedding experience. Take exclusive use of the Jacobean-style country house and choose between an array of grand and finely furnished rooms to hold your ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception. Additionally, The Summer House, set within a sunken garden makes for a charming, idyllic outdoor ceremony venue. Finally, the abundance of mature parkland is ideal if you wish to erect a marquee or tipi. For a magical, serene affair The Swiss Garden, designed in the late Regency era, is a rare example of period landscape design. Within the garden, surrounded by beautifully manicured lawns, are two licenced venues for wedding ceremonies: The Swiss Cottage and The Grotto & Fernery. The Collection’s Hangar 3 is a thrilling venue to host your day. With tables peppered around masterpieces of aviation and automotive history, this unique space lends itself to a stylish ‘vintage’ celebration. As a multi-venue property, Shuttleworth offers the opportunity to host your ceremony and your reception in more than one location. All weddings at Shuttleworth are offered with the close assistance of an experienced wedding planner, to assist in the lead up to and during the wedding - this is complimentary to ensure excellence of service.
