Such a perfect day in a beautiful venue
We had our wedding here on 24/8/19 and it was such a perfect day in a beautiful venue. We loved the venue as soon as we visited and felt so lucky to be able to have our dream wedding here. Everything went to plan smoothly and the staff were so helpful and brilliant especially our planner Helen. She was always on hand to answer any questions we had and made sure the day was perfect for us. The venue and grounds are beautiful and we received lots of great compliments from our guests. We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding. Thankyou so much to all the Shottle Hall Team ❤️

The most amazing wedding day at Shottle Hall
We had the most amazing wedding day at Shottle Hall on 10.11.19. The venue is absolutely stunning and we loved how our dog could be part of the ceremony and have photos afterwards. The day ran so smoothly thanks to our wedding planner Helen and she offered good words of advice throughout the day which was much appreciated. The food was amazing and we had so many compliments from guests on how nice the wedding breakfast was and also the evening buffet. Nathan kindly got my brother a goodie bag of food as he had to leave early to catch his train. I was impressed that we all managed to pull off a big ‘Elvis’ surprise for our evening entertainment. My husband and guests had no idea about this and I just loved the look on his face when it was announced.

I cannot recommend the venue and staff enough
We recently got married at Shottle Hall and I cannot recommend the venue and staff enough. Sally was our wedding co-ordinator and we thought she was wonderful! She was so attentive to us and our needs - nothing was ever a problem and she always gave us such helpful advice. The venue is just beautiful and essentially yours for the day which really adds to the occasion. We went for a more relaxed, untraditional wedding and we were so pleased with how everything turned out. Thank you to all of you for making it so special and for looking after us so well. It really is true what you say “We don’t do the every day we do your special day”.
