Shropshire Wedding Venues

I am constantly inundated with excited couples trying to find their perfect wedding venue. It seems they come to me as I throw the style of wedding they want and tend to work in the style of venue that they are sniffing out.

Festival style, vintage, rustic, quirky weddings can of course be held in your average manor house, castle or stately home but the people who come to me often want something a little different and usually with a different budget in mind.

So here are my top 5 Quirky Shropshire Wedding Venues. Some without pictures as we like to keep them secret, but come through me and we can go and view them!

1. A field over looking Wenlock Edge! You can have the full festival wedding experience, set up a yurt such as Henry's gorgeous Yurts or how about a Stretch Tent from Contact me for further details tell Will Ruth sent you!

2. The Sun Inn at Leintwardine. Not strictly in Shropshire, just over the border in Herefordshire but very close to Ludlow and all that delicious foodie-ness. Rustic, parlous pub. Original flagstone floor, original wallpaper. Large eco-build extension on the back and vintage furniture. Oh yes and fantastic real ale! for further details

Festoon co-ordinates weddings at The Sun.

3. Wistanstow Village Hall. The largest village hall in the country apparently and it really is gorgeous. It includes a small field over looking incredible countryside, lots of parking and beautiful woodwork inside.

4. Wilderhope Manor is actually a youth hostel but has recently had a refurb and is now a brilliant combination of grand yet rustic. Remote enough to have a big knees up with gorgeous grounds and accomodation for guests on site yet close to Much Wenlock and Bridgnorth. Tents can also be erected outside.

Contact Wilderhope on 08453719149 or
5. A brand new use for a very old barn. Potiphar's Barn in Munslow is suitable for private dining, exhibitions and now for weddings with a custom made canopy extending the space out into the farmyard. Marvelously eccentric owners to top it off - you can hold something very magical here!

Available with or without ducks.
