Wedding Testimonials

Welcome to Shilstone Devon

We were absolutely delighted with the wedding venue at Shilstone House. Sebastian and his team were so welcoming, friendly and accommodating.

We had travelled 5 hours all the way from Yorkshire to see the venue and were so impressed with the staff and whole set up that we booked that day!

It really is everything we were looking for and so much more. We cannot wait for our wedding day in 2017.


Sarah and Michael – 2nd June 2017

We just wanted to briefly say an enormous thank you to all of you for going over and above on Saturday. The food was better than we could have possibly imagined and the effort that went into it was evident.

Everybody commented on how fabulous everything was, including one ‘best meal I’ve ever had’ comment so please send our thanks to the chef and pass on the glowing praise.

It was honestly unforgettable and you were all fantastic. Jo, you’re amazing.

Helen and Henry – 23rd April 2016

Just a quick note to thank you and all of your staff at Shilstone for making Helen and Henry’s wedding day on Saturday so memorable for all of us.

The venue, as you know, is fabulous and the very gentle and encouraging guidance and steering through the preparation process was so gently and tactfully handled that it made the whole exercise seem totally seamless and relaxed. A great weight off our minds, thus enabling all of us to enjoy the day without getting caught up in last minute panics.

Do please pass on our thanks to everybody for their support and encouragement and smiley faces – hugely appreciated

Rachel and I wanted to write to you both to say a very big thank you to you and the team at Shilstone for your help in making our wedding day everything we could have hoped for.

So many of our guests have since commented on how truly spectacular the venue and the setting was on our day, and both you and your team were a pleasure to deal with from the moment we first visited Shilstone just over a year ago.

We hope you are both well and we would love to pop in and see you next time we are in Devon.
Thank you again, and very best wishes

Guy and I would like to thank you for everything! From letting us and 180 guests invade your lovely home to all the emails, calls and visits to put together the most amazing day. We really can’t thank you and your staff enough.

Reema and Guy – Saturday 22nd September 2012

We were thrilled to hold our daughter’s wedding at Shilstone last Saturday. We knew it was beautiful and we were lucky enough to have such lovely weather, but all the same the house marquee and gardens were particularly lovely. The flowers in the gardens looked gorgeous, and everyone commented on the lovely lighting around the marquee and in the orchard during the evening. The whole day moved seamlessly from house to marquee without us feeling rushed or chivvied. Thank you for your part in this.
