Whole day was perfection
Venue Service

By Joanne Cowley, on 04 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 22 Nov 2018

We celebrated our friends wedding at this wonderful venue on 22nd September, the house was beautifully stunning and the whole day was perfection. The staff were very helpful, even offering to take a guest to her hotel when her taxi was late! I can certainly recommend the Gin Club which we certainly made use of!! We also stayed for 2 nights in the Stables accommodation which was comfortable with a very much needed delicious breakfast in the morning. Anyone looking for a stunning, picturesque location for their wedding please take a look, probably one of the nicest venues we’ve had the pleasure of attending. Martin & Lucy, your pictures will be stunning and can’t wait to see them

Would recommend to anybody
Venue Service

By Tony Carter, on 04 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Nov 2018

Firstly would like to thank Emma, the Shipp family and staff for an amazing day. From the moment you walk through the door you are met with a warm welcome and a stunning house. Everything that is supposed to be stressful about organising a wedding was made easy so when it came to the day it was lovely. We were able to have the wedding ceremony at the venue which was wonderful and makes it easy for guests as there was no traveling involved. The wedding breakfast was absolutely amazing all hot and we'll cooked. The venue itself is so nicely decorated that we felt we didn't need to do alot of wedding decorations and being the wedding was near Christmas we were fortunate enough to have Christmas decorations aswell which are very tastefully done. We stayed the night of our wedding at the Stables which is a short walk across the grounds to where the Rooms are situated. The rooms were clean, warm and comfortable and the breakfast the next day was lovely. All of our guests commented to us about how lovely the venue was and how nice staff and food were amazing. Would recommend to anybody.

Highly Recommended
Venue Service

By Arun Barnard Weston & Araron Readings, on 07 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Sep 2018

We could not recommend Grittleton House more highly as a wedding venue. The house itself is just breathtaking and from start to finish the staff were a delight to deal with. The packages are excellent value for money, and having their simply brilliant coordinator Emma by my side during the planning process and the day itself definitely took away a huge amount of the stress and pressure that I had expected to feel. She was extremely efficient throughout (even when on annual leave) and went above and beyond to answer every little question I had. No other venue we saw compared, and our day was perfect.

The gift that keeps on giving
Venue Service

By Lucy Tery, on 04 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 22 Sep 2018

We got married at Grittleton House this September. We happened to stumble upon it on our way back from viewing a different venue. The drive up to the House is absolutely stunning and the House truly is the gift that keeps on giving. We completely fell in love with the rustic and perfectly imperfect feel of the house. Emma was an absolute delight to work with and she really let us take the lead and helped where we needed it. No question or request seemed problematic and Emma always replied quickly. The staff did an amazing job of decorating the room for us and we couldn’t fault them on the day. The day went to plan, everyone ensuring things ran smoothly so myself and the hubby could mingle with our guests. I felt completely relaxed and at ease knowing that the staff had everything under control. The food seemed to go down really well. Nelson did a great job as toast master. Perfect setting for pictures both inside and within the grounds. Our guests had a great stay in the Stables and enjoyed their much needed fry up the next morning! Thank you so much for hosting our wedding day, we have special memories to treasure forever.

The Best Day of Our Lives
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Brown, on 07 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Sep 2018

We had our fabulous wedding here on Friday 21.09.18 and it was THE most magical day ever. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Emma was fantastic throughout the whole planning process. Nothing was too much trouble and she was always on hand to answer any questions which made it a very relaxed experience as I knew everything would go to plan in her capable hands. The food was absolutely incredible and the personalized cocktails went down a storm along with the Marshfield ice cream treat at the drinks reception. The venue is an absolute gem and we will never get over just how incredible it is. We would like to say a huge thank you to Emma, Nelson, Matt, Vanessa and all the staff for being so amazing and making our retro wedding the best day of our lives ?? ?? Lots of love Mr & Mrs Brown xxxx

Wedding Photographer
Venue Service

By Tracy Law, on 07 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Sep 2018

I've just returned home after photographing Angie & Steve's wedding at Grittleton House today. I just want to say what a fantastic place it is. All the staff were friendly, helpful, amenable and very professional. There were a lot of people to cater for today but despite this dinner was very well organized & the food was excellent. The grounds & house are amazing & I got some beautiful shots. Despite its size Grittleton has an air of calmness about it, and there's a great chilled out atmosphere when you walk around there. Emma, the wedding coordinator, was fab. She & Nelson kept everything running just like clockwork. Grittleton, you are definitely in my top 5 list of favourite venues to work in.

By Pam Gregory & Mike Fisher, on 07 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2018

Our wedding at Grittleton House at the end of July was quite simply one of the best days of our lives! The venue, food and company were outstanding. Nelson and Kirsty were incredibly attentive throughout our day and evening receptions. Compliments to the chefs for their exquisite food - they went out of their way to ensure all dietary needs were catered for. Many thanks to all the staff behind the scenes who made our day the most memorable it could possibly have been.
