To complete the perfect package we also have on site accommodation.

    My only wish is that we could do it all again!

    Thank you again for everything, we really did have the best day. So many people said to me prior to the wedding ‘things will go wrong but try not to worry about it’ and ‘there will be things you would change when you look back’ but I can safely say, I would not change a thing and everything ran smoothly, no glitches at all, not even the weather! Nelson was brilliant and all of the staff working there on the day! The food was AMAZING, we had so many lovely comments! I could go on and on...!! My only wish is that we could do it all again!! It seems a lifetime ago already! Thank you so much again! I don’t know what to do with myself now! Thank you Emma

    I could not recommend it more

    We got married at Grittleton House in September 2019 and I could not recommend it more.
    The setting is incredible and there are so many rooms in the house it really is perfect for a wedding. Emma could not have been more helpful throughout the process and on the day she and Nelson were amazing.
    Given we have Ghanian and Persian family we wanted a bespoke wedding breakfast, we liaised with Andreas for a number of months and the food was excellent, so many of our guests complimented it.
    The bedrooms at the top of the house are a wonderful touch and it is fabulous to stay and have breakfast with all of your guests the next day. The staff were all so kind and helpful, especially when we were packing everything up!
    If you are thinking of booking a wedding here - DO IT, you will not regret it.

    Thank you for making this a day to remember

    Well, where do I start? On the big day?
    From the moment we arrived on Saturday we could not have been welcomed more warmly. Every member of your staff did their utmost to ensure the day was successful. Their attention to detail, enthusiasm and professionalism were exemplary. This certainly went a long way to de-stress the morning as we fumbled our way through the various last minute preparations.
    The venue – everything in place, and immaculate. Oscar’s relatives from the USA were blown away with the setting.
    The food – wow, from canapés to the Wedding Breakfast, to the evening buffet. Simply wonderful. Andreas approached the planning with much enthusiasm and flexibility and delivered way beyond Emily and Oscar’s expectations.
    The staff – as I said, they could not do enough for us. Thanks to each and every one of them. A special thanks to Emma and Nelson, who on the day were faultless.
    The bedrooms – wow. The refurbished rooms were perfect.
    The feedback from Emily and Oscar’s guests could not have been more positive, about every aspect of the day. Thank you for making this a day to remember.
    Once again, many thanks. It was a very special day, filled with much joy and happiness

    Everyone loved the venue

    We just wanted to thank you for everything! We had the most incredible day - everything was perfect and we just enjoyed ourselves so much. Everyone loved the venue and the food and all the staff were so professional. The day couldn’t have gone any better and we look forward to sharing the professional photos and videos with you when we are back from our honeymoon!
    Throughout the planning you have been so helpful and quick to get back to us about everything - it made the lead up stress free and we knew we would be in great hands on the day and it really did go without a hitch! The magnums were also the best suggestion - everyone is still raving about those :)

    I would not hesitate to recommend it

    After holding my wedding reception at Grittleton House this May I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a wedding venue. Emma and the team were really helpful, both with the planning process and on the day. They ensured the day's schedule ran smoothly and we received many comments from our guests about how great the food was and how beautiful both the house and grounds are. We really liked the new in house accommodation and the additional accommodation at the Stables was convenient and reasonably priced for guests

    Thank you for all your help

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help leading up to our wedding and helping organise such a great day. Our overall experience has been very enjoyable and we felt that you have been very easy to communicate with and direct which has made things straight forward and easy to understand. Everything on the day went to plan how we wanted it to and I would like to make special mention to Nelson who went out his way on multiple occasions throughout the day to make sure Rosie and I were looked after well and having a good time - his customer service on our wedding day was excellent so please share our thanks to him for his support.

    The food is out of this world

    We had our wedding at Grittleton House at the end of March and couldn't have had a more perfect day. Emma, Nelson and the team are amazing and on the day you just enjoy the experience and get swept away with the day. The house itself is stunning! We were lucky to have a sunny day so our guests also enjoyed the orangery and gardens. A truly beautiful venue that needs no embellishment. Thanks again to all the Grittleton team xx p.s. the food is out of this world
