About Davenport House

Worfield, Bridgnorth
Shropshire, WV15 5LE

An enchanting country estate and family residence, Davenport House is exclusively yours on your special day. Set amidst the picturesque Shropshire countryside at the end of a sweeping driveway, this idyllic Georgian house has been hosting beautiful weddings for 25 years. 2017 saw an extensive refurbishment, restoring the original features while introducing exceptional interior design.  Now you can step inside this magical venue and make yourself at home, inviting your friends and family to celebrate your wedding day surrounded by its history, warmth and elegance.


Entering this great house through the magnificent double doors, you might choose to say ‘I do’ in The Great Hall. Brimming with character from its chic style to stone floors and portraits of the Davenport family, this is the very heart of the home and the perfect place in which to say your vows. Alternatively, marry in another of the great rooms in the house, or between the pillars on the wonderful front steps of Davenport House, making the most of the idyllic surroundings and façade. 


From The Great Hall, double doors open to lead through to the beautiful Saloon with its marquetry floor. It is here that you might choose to enjoy welcome drinks and canapés along with breathtaking views over the lawns beyond. Stone steps lead down from The Saloon to the terrace, lawns and lily pond, a sublime spot in which to mingle with a glass of fizz on warmer days. Photo opportunities are in abundance both inside and out, from the secluded secret garden to the magnificent staircase and fireplaces. 


The Drawing Room lures your guests in to dine, with original panelling painted in elegant ‘tea green’, wood floors and large windows overlooking the lawns. The specialist on-site wedding event planners and expert caterers will work closely with you to create the most spectacular wedding. From delicious canapés to exquisite dining and imaginative, informal evening food, they use only the freshest seasonal ingredients to create your bespoke menu.


Throughout the day, as the rooms connect with one another, there is a natural flow between ceremony, reception, wedding breakfast and evening celebration. As day turns to evening, The Great Hall takes centre stage again as your dance floor, while guests might also choose to relax in The Saloon or The Drawing Room.


Accommodating up to 32 people overnight, you and your closest friends and family can enjoy the beautiful surroundings for the entirety of your day. Four luxurious en-suite bedrooms, including a honeymoon suite and impressive breakfast area are located in the main house, while four cottages in the grounds offer self-catering accommodation, each with a private garden. A further cottage, The Stable, is offered as your bridal preparation area. Light and airy with dressing tables and an array of mirrors, just a few steps across the gravel driveway lead you to the main house and your ceremony. From intimate to lavish, and from contemporary style to the more traditional, Davenport House is your country estate to use exactly as you wish.

• A Grade I listed Georgian residence, completely restored in 2017 and exclusively yours on your wedding day. • Magical spaces for ceremonies, dining and celebrations, from the impressive Great Hall to the serene Drawing Room, all with original features. • Beautiful lawns with far reaching views over the Shropshire countryside boasting wonderful photo opportunities, from the pretty lily pond to the secluded secret garden. • Accommodation for up to 32 guests in four luxurious bedrooms in the main house and four self-catering cottages in the grounds. • The Stable, a cottage designed specifically for bridal preparation, just a few steps from the main house. • On-site catering and event management from the talented team and expert chefs, offering outstanding service and exceptional dining opportunities.

Absolute Wedding Perfection!
Venue Service

By Danielle and Chris, on 31 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Jul 2018

It was love at first sight when we came to Davenport House and it was equally amazing when we got married here. The staff were brilliant, the food faultless, and the setting so beautiful. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect venue to get married. Thank you so much for making our day so special.

Huge thanks for everything you did for us to make our wedding day so memorable and magical. All our guests commented on how fabulous Davenport House was and how all their needs were catered for. Wendi and I were treated like royalty and made to feel very special on such a fabulous day and all your time and effort was greatly appreciated by the both of us. We couldn't imagine a more wonderful and magical setting that Davenport House.

Just wanted to say a massive thanks to all involved in making our day so very special, we couldn't fault anything and had the most amazing day. We have had countless calls from guests who say it was the best wedding they have ever been too and how impressed they were by the venue!

The most perfect wedding venue
Venue Service

By Rebekah, on 31 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 11 Nov 2017

The most perfect wedding/reception venue. My sister in law had her reception here and had a truly memorable day. The house is stunning, the staff are incredible and just can’t do enough for you, the food was out of this world (the best wedding breakfast I think I’ve ever had) and the attention to detail is simply overwhelming.

The food was unreal
Venue Service

By Sarah, on 31 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 19 Aug 2017

Utterly fabulous!! Beautiful setting for my sister's wedding. The team were amazing; totally professional and accommodating. The food was unreal and plentiful. The owner's ability to make you feel you're home from home and you have the run of this beautiful house and grounds. There's something unique about Davenport House. The wedding was stunning. Thank you so much for an unforgettable day!
