We cannot recommend this venue enough to couples l
St Giles House was the perfect backdrop to our wedding and we had the most fantastic day from start to finish. We cannot recommend this venue enough to couples looking for a wedding venue. The venue/setting was one of the most important aspects to us for our wedding as we had decided on a November wedding, so we required a venue with enough space and character to keep guests occupied in case of rain! St Giles house is not only beautiful but is the most unique wedding venue we have seen and our guests absolutely loved the venue too. The team at St Giles House made our experience across the 17 months of our wedding planning (and on the day) so wonderful and they were so accommodating. They truly make your day as perfect as they can for you. St Giles House will always be so special to us not only because of our wedding day but also because of how romantic and bursting with history the place is. Every time we visited in the lead up to the wedding we always came away smiling and happy. Thank you again to everyone at St Giles.

What an incredibly special venue
We truly did have the best day of our lives and we can’t thank yourself and the team at St.Giles enough for all your help in the lead up and on the day. What an incredibly special venue, we couldn’t have dreamed of anywhere more perfect for us to celebrate our day and you really do have the best team on hand which made the whole experience stress free and on the day, everything ran so smoothly. I will make sure all our thanks to you and the team is popped in a review, that goes without saying! Everyone has been singing the venues praises, they loved every minute, with the Riding House stay being the icing on the cake.
