Full Description
  • Shuttleworth, located in Old Warden, is one of Bedfordshire’s best kept secrets. The venue offers three breath taking settings for your wedding – a magnificent house with period rooms, a romantic picturesque Swiss Garden and an aircraft hangar with a backdrop of vintage aircraft and Edwardian vehicles. Civil ceremonies and post-ceremony receptions are available all year round. Whether you are planning a wedding which is peaceful and intimate or formal and grand, Shuttleworth has a selection of exquisite spaces for every occasion. The nine-acre Swiss Garden was created in the 1820s by Lord Ongley. It’s highly individual late Regency style sets it apart from other English gardens in this period of landscape design. By the 1870s, the Shuttleworth family owned the estate and embellished the garden with Victorian flourishes. Features include floral arches spanning lawns and a stately Broadwalk, serpentine paths, ponds with wrought iron bridges leading to a series of islands, an impressive Grotto & Fernery and the charming Swiss Cottage, both of which are licenced for wedding ceremonies. The garden’s charming style lends itself to many unique and beautiful photographic opportunities. Offering the ultimate convenience, The House has 15 en-suite bedrooms that can accommodate you and your guests. Located in a separate wing adjacent to the main house, the rooms are equipped with televisions, WiFi, hairdryer, tea and coffee making facilities. Breakfast can also be arranged for the following day.
