One of the best wedding venues i have catered at
The Shropshire meat chef
A wedding in the center of shrewsbury offering exclusive use of the pools and adjoining fields , what a beautiful setting
The venue's organic wildflower pools together with its charming 100 meter arched pathway, offer the ultimate blank canvas: whether you're planning a traditional wedding reception, a modern soiree or a mini festival, Doset pools is guaranteed to provide the one-off unique memory you’re after. What's more, your wedding photographer and guests alike, will be oozing with inspiration against the choice of 2 lovely pools , the river severn and some of the county’s rarest trees in our wildlife corridor, as their backdrop. And, if that isn’t enough to give you the distinctive edge you’re after, the fishing is fantastic
We at Dorset pools have had the pleasure of hosting a number of very different weddings in the last 2 years and, as a result, can talk you through the ideas that work. We can also introduce and recommend a number of different suppliers depending on your needs. Whether it's tipis amongst the trees or a rustic al-fresco wedding breakfast, or perhaps a small glamping village to retire to after dancing the night away in a yurt, we can help host the pop up venue of your choice. Furthermore, because we limit our wedding events to a handful a year, we can give yours the attention it needs to get it right.
Each wedding event at Dorset pools is unique and the price varies according to your choices. Because we are a green eco-conscious venue, our wedding packages are determined by number of guests you invite. But whichever size you go for in the end, you will have the exclusive use of the event field, the wildlife corridor, camping for all guests, unique use of the fishing pools
And plenty of parking for your guests
