Every love story is unique and so is every wedding day. We’re thrilled to share the heartwarming tale of Tilly and Phil, whose marital journey culminated in a magical Shilstone wedding. Join us as we delve into the details of their special day, filled with love, laughter and cherished moments.


Selecting the right wedding venue is always a crucial decision for couples and they couldn’t have made a better choice. They opted for our breathtaking Devon countryside Shilstone Estate, a place that resonated with their love for outdoor beauty and architectural elegance. The serene gardens, the majestic house and the enchanting surroundings set the stage for a wedding straight out of a fairytale.

The morning was a whirlwind of anticipation and nervous excitement. Tilly and her bridesmaids, adorned in elegant gowns, shared laughter as they prepared for the day. Meanwhile, John and his groomsmen dressed in sharp suits and swapped stories about the moments that led them to this day.


Surrounded by family and friends on the front lawn of the magnificent Georgian Manor house decorated with show-stopping floristry by Dartmoor Flowers, Tilly and Phil exchanged vows in a heartfelt ceremony.


Following the ceremony, the festivities began in earnest. The Mughal Marquee at Shilstone had been transformed into a wonderland of flowers, twinkling lights and the most irresistible looking cake by Lottie Starr. The guests were treated to a sumptuous feast that was as delicious as it was beautifully presented.

The day was expertly captured by talented photographer, Clare Kinchin, who knows Shilstone like the back of her hand. We love how she preserved every smile, every tear and every loving glance. The couple’s photo album will certainly become a cherished keepsake, a reminder of a day filled with joy. 


Their love story and their beautiful wedding serves a reminder that true love is worth celebrating and every wedding is a unique and special journey.

We’d love to extend a warm invitation to visit Shilstone to tour the house, gardens and wider estate and chat to our knowledgeable Wedding Coordinators to see how magical your wedding day could look with us.
