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.

    Perfect wedding day

    We are so glad that we chose Davenport House as our wedding venue. All the staff are lovely and can't do enough for you. We felt at ease during the whole planning process - even during covid - as the team are so good at what they do and think of every detail. Changing our date due to covid couldn't have been easier with Davenport House, and we're so grateful for this. All our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was, as well as the quality of the food and drink. We can't recommended Davenport House enough!

    We picked Davenport House as our wedding venue because everything about it is classic, elegant, welcoming and stylish. Every little detail was thought out. The team are incredible and there was nothing that could not be accommodated! Since our wedding we have visited Davenport tor our first anniversary. Lizzie and the team are amazing. Davenport is one of my absolute favourite places!

    Our perfect wedding day

    Thank you so much for helping us create our perfect wedding day. Davenport House is such a special venue and the food was incredible. Our family and friends are still talking about what a wonderful day they had. Our family said staying overnight in the onsite cottages felt like a real holiday, and you were so accommodating.

    Thank you for making the whole wedding planning experience so straight forward and relaxed. Who ever said wedding planning is stressful clearly didn’t get married at Davenport!
    Thank you x

    The best wedding

    Dear Lizzie, Joe, Nikki and all the Davenport House Team. Thank you so much for everything you did to ensure Conor and I had the best day of our lives. From start to finish we felt in good hands. One of our wedding photos shows Lizzie subtly holding out my veil as I walk down the aisle and I think that sums up how incredible and the attention to detail you all put into the day. We had so many compliments on the venue and tentative team, not to mention people saying it was the best wedding food they had ever had. I wish we could do it all again!
    Thanks again, lots of love, Conor and Lyndsey

    Absolute Wedding Perfection!

    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.

    Memorable and Magical

    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.

    The most perfect wedding venue

    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

    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!
