There are no words to describe just how wonderful our day was at Shilstone, but we’ll give it a go!

The entire team completely exceeded all expectations. From the planning stages, receiving an instant reply to every email we sent, to answering all questions and providing information that I didn’t even know I needed, through to the pack up the following morning, every single person at Shilstone was more helpful and accommodating than we could have ever asked for.

Everything was so slick on the day of the wedding, but just a few highlights:

The accommodation was beautiful, spacious and so well maintained. The bridal room has been thought out so well, with the light-up stations and super large full length mirror, it was perfect!

My dad was blown away at how coordinated the traffic was, from the staff directing cars, stopping them so my dad could pass in his truck, and helping with directions.

I was in awe watching the service of your waiting team. Having worked for a Michelin starred property, I’m always super impressed when a venue/restaurant nails service and you guys absolutely smashed it. One of the most exciting parts of the wedding breakfasts was watching all the waiting staff put the plates down on the table at the exact same time!

The food was fantastic, or at least all my guests told me so, I was too full of nerves/adrenaline/excitement to eat unfortunately, but it looked wonderful and we’ve had loads of great feedback about the canapes through the evening food. People especially went crazy for the pasties!!

The venue is just beautiful, even in the pouring rain there was still plenty of space for our guests to be sheltered and for us to have some perfect and picturesque photos to be taken.

There’s so much more I could say, but in all honestly, I’m at work and writing this has made me feel quite emotional! It was honestly, the most perfect of days and I would do anything to be able to relive it all again and again.

We cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work and professionalism, it was executed just seamlessly and made it a completely stressfree day for us both. We are so thrilled to have found Shilstone House and honoured to have hosted the most magical day of our lives there!

All the very best wishes,

Lauren and Ben Martin
