What Shilstone has to offer as a wedding venue in Devon
If you’re planning on choosing a wedding venue in Devon, we can guarantee you will be spoilt for choice. You will soon learn, however, every venue is different and at Shilstone we like to believe we offer something you will not find at any other Devon wedding venue.
Shilstone is an exclusive wedding venue. We never host more than one event a day, and, in fact, we don’t hold more than two events in a row either! In order to deliver unique wedding days with impeccable service, it is important we host events at reasonable intervals. Due to our wonderfully secluded location, our exclusivity goes one step further…we also don’t have to worry about unexpected visitors, such as passing trade. Other than our fantastically helpful staff (and perhaps our resident sheep and cattle) the only faces to appear on your wedding day are those of friends and family! Your whole day from start to finish is completely intimate, with staff dedicated to delivering the wedding day of your dreams.
Our exclusivity at Shilstone extends to our onsite accommodation. Whitmore and Meadow Barn, situated on the Shilstone Estate were converted for and used only by wedding guests. Whether you hire a barn to maximum capacity or not, the facility is yours to enjoy in total exclusivity. This includes dedicated parking, fully equipped kitchen facility and luxury, contemporary double bedrooms. Both accommodation barns reflect the style of the main Shilstone site with their classical, yet modern finish.
Unlike many wedding venues in Devon, Shilstone offers a large capacity for guests. Our onsite Mughal Marquee for Summer weddings can seat up to 220 for the Wedding Breakfast! On Ceremony facilities too can accommodate guest numbers in excess of 130!
As Shilstone is based in Devon, we are fortunate to be surrounded by amazing, iconic scenery, making our weddings that much more unique, and, of course, breathtakingly stunning.
Weddings in the Summer come with the freedom of wandering Shilstone’s formal gardens and far-reaching Estate, providing plenty of space to celebrate, but also offering an unparalleled backdrop for your photographs. The Georgian Manor House’s East and West Halls and wood-panelled Dining Room offer architecturally stunning inside space, allowing you and your guests to explore the uniqueness and history of Shilstone.
