Richard and Dhika Harvey-Bush

We married at Compton Verney in May 2024 and our experience was nothing short of brilliant. The staff are diligent and accommodating. They worked alongside other suppliers to make our dream wedding a reality. Many thanks to Hannah and her team.

We had an incredible day... but it was a huge ammount of work

We had a wonderful day, the venue is gorgeous and things may be different this year but I wouldn't recommend this venue to anyone unless they are also hiring a separate events team & planner. We planned everything ourselves and organised multiple individual suppliers for each element, including external catering (no use of CV kitchens allowed at the time), hiring a bar, hiring bar staff, additiona serving staff, people to set up and clear away the venue. The timescales are tight, for a Saturday wedding the venue needs to be clear and cleaned (by you) before 10am the following day and can only be set up from 9am on the day of the wedding. As a bride I had to personally help take down tables, clear rubbish and load vans a midnight on my wedding night as CV do not have any form of internal events team. We hired staff to assist but CV doesn't provide an events manager to be there to organise and oversee this process so I had to do this (although the couple of staff who were on hand were incredibly helpful at the time). Even a wedding planner wouldn't have been sufficient as the set up began at 9am and clear up began at Midnight so two managers would be needed if you weren't doing this yourself. We had an amazing day, but only becuase we did a huge ammount of planning and organising to ensure we had plans and back up plans! CV only really privided the empty venue and absolutely nothing else. If we hadn't been able to stay at the coach house next door (separately organised, for £350/night) things would/could have been very different!

The best day of our lives

The staff at CV are fantastic at their job. We had the type of wedding that required multiple settings and a tight schedule. They were very professional and accommodating at every step. Since they are a functioning art gallery, they will always have a temperature-controlled rainy day plan. The Capability Brown landscape is absolutely breathtaking; people couldn't stop talking about it. All in all: such a perfect venue that you can keep visiting year after year with family and friends.

Fell for its beauty, charm and understated glamour

From the first day we visited Compton Verney to view it as a potential wedding venue we both fell for its beauty, charm and understated glamour. It truly is a magical place that grabs you from the moment you turn the corner and view the house over the lake. The staff worked tirelessly to make our wedding day perfect and we felt that we had their full attention at every meeting. Our guests all commented on the venue, the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the catering and we couldn’t have faulted anything. Thank you for making our day so perfect.

We were truly made to feel very special

The venue and the events team were absolutely fantastic from day one of booking! No request was too much. The whole planning of the day was easy and personalised. We were truly made to feel very special by every member of the team even more so on the day. On the day the team were incredibly attentive to us and our family and friends, which was commented on. We would do it again in a heartbeat in such a beautiful setting and grounds! We will continue to enjoy visiting Compton Verney for the rest of our married lives together as it hold a truly special place in our hearts.

We didnt look anywhere else

Our wedding at Compton Verney was a dream come true, I had grown up visiting CV and had always been in awe of the most amazing building, artwork and grounds and when it came to choosing our wedding venue I couldn't think of anywhere better to celebrate our marriage. I took my fiancé to visit and he fell in love with it too - we didn't look anywhere else! And we booked CV the very same week. We had the most perfect day with all our friends and family, with memories we shall treasure forever. The staff were so friendly and made the day flow seamlessly, we wouldn't change a thing!!

Best part of the day has to have been the staff

We held our wedding reception at Compton Verney in November 2019. The venue itself its absolutely stunning surrounded by beautiful grounds. The best part of the day however has to have been the staff, led by Sally on the day. They made the drinks, eating, and dancing go so smoothly and made us feel so relaxed during the day. We would 100% recommend Compton Verney as a place to have your wedding celebrations!

everyone commented on what a great day and venue i

Sally, Penny and the entire team at Compton Verney did an amazing job of ensuring our Wedding Day went exactly to plan. Sally made me feel so comfortable and confident during the planning that my Mum and I were able to completely relax and enjoy the preparations and experience, knowing that everything would be set up exactly as we had envisioned and discussed. The day ran so smoothly and perfectly to plan and everyone commented on what a great day and venue it was. I know how much effort it takes behind the scenes to make the day run smoothly and am so grateful for all of your hard work in pulling it together. Paddy, myself and our parents are all so thrilled with how the day went. It was the perfect setting and I'm so pleased we were able to hold the ceremony outside and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Sally is extremely talented at her job and we feel so lucky to have had you working with us to make our day the huge success it was. It was so lovely coming in to collect the boxes the following morning and having the staff comment on what a lovely day it was. Our guests couldn't praise the venue and everyone working there enough. The whole team were fantastic and did all they good to support our dream wedding day (and we asked for a lot) and I couldn't recommend Compton Verney more highly as a Wedding venue.

A venue that ticked every box...

"We had been struggling to find a wedding venue that suited us and then we found Compton Verney. A venue that ticked every box. The stunning grounds, scenery and building are obvious and are joy to admire, however it is the work that was completed to make our day special that sets Compton Verney apart. The wedding team of Anona and Sally were fantastic, we wanted to make our wedding very personal and unique and Anona and Sally not only helped us with this but their shared excitement made the experience even more enjoyable. The service we received by every member of staff on our wedding day was incredible. The staff were helpful, pleasant and professional. It was important to us that our guest enjoyed the day as much as we did and we have had so many quests compliment the venue, food and service they received. This allowed us to enjoy our day and make it perfect. Now we get to return and enjoy Compton Verney again and again. We will always have so many special memories of our day and we have Compton Verney to thank for that."

My Daughter's Wedding

I really can't thank the entire Staff at Compton Verney highly enough. From the initial meeting to the end of the wedding day, they were all fantastic. I really do mean all. From the Event organizer to the bar staff and security staff they were brilliant. Adam Hall itself was a perfect setting. They made it look amazing. All the guests said what a fantastic setting it was. I really can't thank you enough for all your hard work and support. The setting and staff are worth more than the top 5 star rating!

One big fairytale

David and i had an outside wedding reception at Compton Verney which was truly like one big fairytale. Harriet was very approachable and so helpful from the organising right through to the big day. All of our guests loved the venue, food, location and all the special
touches made. Thank you Harriet for making our big day be more than we imagined. Definitely recommend having your wedding at Compton Verney”
