Last update: February 2024

Berwick House & Gardens is a Grade II* listed Georgian-Victorian wedding venue on the sparkling River Severn just a mile North of Shrewbury Town. This outstanding mansion was built in 1731 and expanded in 1875 with no expense spared, resulting in a truly stunning manor designed for entertainment and rich with character. Wow your guests with manicured gardens, rolling countryside, and luxurious accommodation, all while putting your own unique twist on your special day. No more deja-vu weddings --- here at Berwick, no two celebrations are ever the same.

Facilities and Capacity

Berwick House was a private family home for over six generations. Today, the same family opens its doors and welcomes you to experience Berwick as your own home.

This beautiful estate offers its lavish interior as your setting for your celebration. Inside you will find hand-carved and oak-panelled walls, floor-to-ceiling windows, large marble fireplaces, and tall corniced ceilings adorned with crystal chandeliers. Colours dance across the rooms as natural light shines through the stained glass ceiling and windows.

With 8 licensed spaces in and around the House and Gardens, you have the freedom to choose your perfect ceremony setting. Seat up to 125 guests in our Drawing Room, or 170 of your guests in Berwick's historic Chapel -- or take it to the gardens for an even larger formality. Up to 400 guests can enjoy the interior of Berwick House for your cocktail reception and afterparty.

Grab a cocktail from the Oak Room Bar and mosey next door for a quiet moment in the Georgian Library, overlooking splendid views of the Italianate Hardy Garden. Dine under crystal chandeliers in our magnificent and light-filled Drawing Room. Floor-to-ceiling windows spill light across the South front, leading you onto the terrace facing the rolling countryside, immaculate gardens, and River Severn. Cosy up with family and friends alongside an open fire in our lavish Dining Room, surrounded by hand carved oak, ancient arms, and crown moulding. Put your Snooker skills to the test on our original mohagany table in the dedicated Billiard Room. How you choose to enjoy Berwick is entirely up to you!

38 of your loved ones can avail of overnight accommodation across 18 bedrooms. Berwick is easily accessible by public transportation or car, taking the stress away from travelling.

For a breath of fresh air, stroll through Berwick's blossoming gardens, finding plenty of photo opportunities along the way. Opt to include use of the historic Little Berwick Chapel, just 200m from Berwick House. It was built in 1672 and is adorned with stained glass, bells, an original organ, impressive sound quality and intricate detail.

The most incredible wedding venue!

This gorgeous venue absolutely blew everyone away! Our guests said it is the most amazing and unique venue they have ever seen, and we feel so blessed to have been able to celebrate our wedding in this beautiful house. We couldn’t quite believe we had what felt like a National Trust property to ourselves!
Will and Kassidy were so helpful, allowing us to visit the venue beforehand to scope it out and lay our plans. Nothing was too much effort for them, and they were so accommodating in helping us create our dream wedding.
One of the biggest bonuses of Berwick House is the fact we could have lots of guests stay in the house the night before and after the wedding, meaning loved ones who had to travel long distances had a convenient place to stay. It was really special for us all to be able to spend time together getting the venue ready the day before. All the rooms were beautiful and spacious, with towels and dressing gowns provided. It truly is a stunning place to get ready and the wedding photos from the bridal prep on the morning of the wedding look incredible.
The grounds are stunning and kids loved running round them. This place is a photographer’s dream with all the beautiful backdrops available.
The fact that Berwick is dry hire enabled us to make this wedding as affordable and personalised as we like. Instead of having overpriced set menus, we could choose our caterers to suit our budget and tastes. There is an awesome bar next to the main hall which we stocked ourselves for a decent price. The flexibility of this venue is wonderful.
We had 125 guests and they were easily accommodated, with rooms like the library being a good getaway for people who want some peace and quiet away from the craziness of the party.
We had a ceilidh in the main hall which worked great, and lent itself to some awesome photos from the balconies above.
Will and Kassidy were so helpful whilst we were setting up and on the wedding day, always available to lend a hand and to sort anything out we needed. One of them was always in the office so we knew where to find them if we had any issues.
I could go on and on about how wonderful this venue is, but in conclusion, we couldn’t have got married anywhere better and highly recommend you view Berwick for your wedding.

A day we shall remember for the rest of our lives.

Berwick were incredible, from the way they supported us, were professional and knowledgeable when it came to arranging the day. To the way they worked with us to create the perfect setting. The house is beautiful, and so are they as people!

100% Magical and amazing!

From the first email, Kassidy and Will were phenomenal. They way they support you to make sure your day is everything you dream of was just outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble. Their communication was impeccable and completely supportive and realistic!
Berwick itself, is like stepping in a film and we were mesmerised. It huge, we personally chose and requested to close off some of the house to keep our guests together- which once again Kassidy and Will fully supported our decision and made it possible!
Our wedding was everything we dreamed of, and all suppliers worked well together and Kassidy and Will were more than accommodating.
We had the horror of our one supplier letting us down, kassidy was so calm and literally problem solved and came out with a miracle.
We would recommend the house, the church and the service! I wish we could do it over and over again! We had nothing we would change.
Thank you so much Kassidy & Will!

Unbelievable and fantastic Choice & Support

Kassidy & Will were absolutely amazing and so accommodating with their beautiful venue recently opened to the public. Anything we wished we were able to do. Kassidy provided lots of advice and tours, helping set the beds hotel style for our guests in the enormous bedrooms. The bar was fantastic, newly refurbished facilities, a very helpful equipment & crockery supplier, and even a Chapel on site to suit 180+ people; the bedrooms made it an amazing venue for our overnight guests, and everybody was stunned by the character and the history of the building.

My wife & I couldn't have wished for a better venue to start our married lives together! The pictures, the beauty of the building, the captivating places for dancing and mingling together made it spectacularly special. I'd have regretted choosing elsewhere.

Absolute Perfection!

Like the title says, Berwick House was absolute perfection! My finance and I visited a few venues but none of them came close to how stunning Berwick House is. This was helped by its owners, Kassidy and Will, particularly Kassidy.

The venue is a complete dry hire which means you can have your own decor, entertainment, food etc. Kassidy was extremely helpful in helping me find vendors and she helped me set up the tables and chairs the day before. Being a dry hire allowed to bring in alpacas and ice cream as my entertainment! Not sure how many other venues would allow this!

Our families stayed the night before and the rooms were all beautiful, particularly the bridal suite. It’s clear to see how much time, effort and love has gone into each room. Everyone was amazed. Kassidy was on hand whenever we needed her, from providing extra mattresses to finding me an extension cord on the morning of the wedding.

The actual grounds of the venue are just simply stunning. Again, you can see how much care and effort has gone into maintaining it all. Every single guest commented on what a beautiful setting it was for the wedding.

Communication with Kassidy was also great, she answered every email and text fairly quickly and gave the impression that nothing was too much - We can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us!!

I would strongly encourage all couples to visit and you’ll fall in love with Berwick House just as much as we did.

Fantastic venue with creative freedom

Berwick House was an incredible venue. We were able to secure our preferred caterers and decorate however we liked, which blew our guests away. My favourite aspect of Berwick was the lack of noise restrictions or time limits - we partied all night! What a memorable experience in a gorgeous stately home.

The Pritchard Wedding

After rearranging our wedding twice due to Covid, we finally tied the knot at Berwick House in October! The trees were orange and yellow and fit my colour scheme perfectly! The whole team at Berwick were so helpful with the planning and the house looked truly beautiful on our big day. The bridal party were able to stay the night before so there was no rushing about in the morning and there was plenty of room for our families to stay too which made for a very calm, stress-free start to the day! I stayed in the ‘Blue’ room and woke to a wonderful view of the grounds and the river. We had the ceremony in the drawing room but we signed the actual papers in the library - I am so excited for the wedding photos to come back because the lighting in the library was absolutely stunning and the books were so beautiful!
We hired a private caterer for the wedding breakfast who found the catering amenities at the house to be perfect. We had 150 guests in total and there was plenty of space for all of us.
My husband and I stayed at Berwick after the wedding (as did a few of wedding party) and the rest of our guests caught taxis back into town (less than 5 mins away).
I would 100% recommend this house to get married in, the whole experience was wonderful and if I could do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing. Thanks to all at Berwick for giving us the best start to our marriage!

Stunning Wedding Venue you dream about....

Where to start with the amazing Berwick House! The dream owners Kassidy and Will were a breath of fresh air and possibly the nicest pair we have ever met. Welcoming our family as if they were there own and opening up their home to us.

The grounds are absolutely stunning more can any picture can do justice. My partner and I had the absolute pleasure to get married there two weeks ago and we are still receiving texts, phone calls and messages on how magical the day was and how beautiful Berwick House really is. To have exclusive access to such a beautiful location for a whole weekend was a gem most people do not get to experience.

From start to finish from signing last August until now, Berwick House has gone above and beyond to make us so comfortable, keeping up positive communications, aiding and assisting where necessary and physically getting stuck in with decorating, liaising with suppliers and generally making our weekend so special.

You will not regret booking here! It truly was a dream come true and we can't wait to see their future success.

Love Sarah & Dan xx

Perfect venue run by wonderful people!

We were lucky enough to stumble upon Berwick House last year and secure it for our wedding. If the venue itself is not reason enough to go book, then Will and Kassidy sure are. They run Berwick with such love, care and passion, and in our experience did everything they could to make our wedding amazing. Berwick is a quirky, beautiful, grand house full of charm and possibilities. All our guests were blown away and have not stopped talking about "the amazing venue".
Will and Kassidy went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly, and were always accommodating and on hand to help with a smile and calm demeanour. They are also just very cool and nice people to be around.
We could not recommend Berwick House enough - it was truly magical and everything we had hoped for.

Beautiful venue with fabulous hosts

We had our wedding at Berwick House on Saturday 14th October, and I have to said it was truly the best day of our lives. The hosts were amazing, helping to set up rooms and were very flexible to meet our requirements and desires for our special day. They were prompt when we had an enquiry and help whenever they could. The venue itself was absolutely fabulous, full of history and has recently been undergoing some redevelopment – it is also situated in the beautiful Shropshire countryside, only a mile or two away from Shrewsbury town centre. All the rooms were clean and decorated in a way that both compliments the history of the place with a touch of modern quirky splendour. I would thoroughly, thoroughly recommend this place for a bespoke wedding. Thank you very much, Will and Kassidy, you have been amazing.

Highly responsive team and stunning authentic venue

This is a beautiful location and as a much-loved family home is unique; it beats sterile hotels hands down. Nothing was too much trouble for Kassidy and Will, and the day went so smoothly thanks to their calm and unobtrusive support at all times. The house itself is stunning.
