Shropshire Wedding Venues
If you are looking around for a wedding venue in Shropshire at the moment, then big congratulations on your engagement! It will be really exciting to look around for your dream wedding venue and then to actually celebrate your wedding there! I have a few favourite wedding venues in Shropshire so I wanted to make this blog post to give you a helping hand with a few venue ideas you might not have thought about yet. I’m based nearby in Herefordshire but I’m very happy to travel for your wedding day - especially to these, my favourite wedding venues! So in no particular order, here’s my top 5 best Shropshire wedding venues…
Iscoyd Park is a country house wedding venue, whose family has been there since 1843! You really do feel like the beautiful Georgian house and grounds is all yours for your wedding, due to the wonderful warm welcome you receive there and the homely feel that they have achieved with their beautiful decor. Iscoyd Park is a photographer’s dream, with everything looking absolutely perfect and making a stunning backdrop for all your wedding photographs. The friendly and experienced team of experts at Iscoyd do everything for you to make your wedding run smoothly, and they have a creative, flexible approach meaning that you can design your wedding day to be exactly as you dreamed. You can get married at the house or at the nearby picture-perfect St Mary’s Church, and enjoy a wonderful reception in the gardens before celebrating later on in the stunning purpose-built marquee garden room. This really is a very special venue and I’m sure you will fall in love with it as I have done!
Here are some Iscoyd Park weddings on the blog:
Clare & Jack’s Iscoyd Park wedding - ceremony in the church
Nat & Ben’s Iscoyd Park wedding - ceremony in the house
Walcot Hall in Shropshire is another total favourite of mine! The rustic Georgian country house set in rambling, romantic grounds is so unusually quirky and full of character, I just love it. It’s absolutely magical. From the turquoise ballroom, to the gypsy caravan and Victorian chapel in the grounds, it is such a treasure-trove of photo opportunities. The team are very flexible to accommodate all your ideas - you can get married in the nearby church, or in the house, or in the courtyard, or even in the beautiful arboretum - there are many exciting options for you to make your day unique. It has the most amazing atmosphere which will make your celebrations completely wonderful.
I wrote a guide to celebrating your wedding at Walcot Hall, which you can read here on the blog.
You can also see Tori & Will’s wedding day on the blog here.
Davenport House has only recently opened as a wedding venue, and I was very honoured to photograph their first wedding there! It’s a beautiful Georgian country house wedding venue, which has been lovingly restored and beautifully redecorated. I definitely recommend you adding this one to your ‘must view’ list!
Blists Hill Victorian Town
Yes you can actually get married in a Victorian town! Blists Hill Victorian Town near Ironbridge is a completely unique wedding venue. Here’s what they say on their website:
“Step back in time for the wedding of the (last) century at Blists Hill Victorian Town! Celebrate your special day with family and friends at one of the most unusual wedding venues - a real-life Victorian Town with quirky buildings, quaint streets and countless photo opportunities.
A wedding here will be a truly magical and memorable experience that you and your guests will remember forever.”
I loved shooting Sarah & Andy’s wedding here, it was so much fun to do their photographs around the Victorian streets and shops! They even had a real Victorian fairground which delighted their guests. Definitely a venue to take a look at if you’re looking for something different.
The Mill Barns
The Mill Barns wedding venue in Shropshire is newly-built just for weddings and is a really impressive new barn complex! I was very lucky to be able to shoot one of their first weddings here and I would love to go back for more. This jaw-dropping new venue has been purpose-built with luxury in mind. With a striking waterfront balcony, massive vaulted ceilings, modern lighting and facilities, and set in picturesque grounds, it gives you everything you could possibly want in a wedding venue, and more. Set on the former site of a 17th Century water mill, it is now an architecturally stunning celebration barn! When I first saw it, I said ‘wow’ quite a lot - I’m sure you will too!
So there we have my little run-down of my top Shropshire wedding venues. This is just written based on where I have enjoyed shooting the most, and I’m sure there are lots of other venues for you to explore too! Wherever you decide to hold your wedding celebration, I would love to be there to photograph it for you, so please do take a look at the rest of my website and get in touch if you would like to find out more about the wedding photography services I offer! Best wishes with your wedding planning x
