Civil Marriages & Partnerships

Hopton Court is fully licensed for civil marriages and partnerships. There are a number of licensed locations in and around the Estate that include the Orangery, Coach House, Portico, Dining Room, and our stunning Woodland.

You can exchange vows near the quaint woodland with the sun glistening past elegant leaves and branches. Alternatively, you can wed in complete sunlight on the front lawns of the mansion which also makes for truly unforgettable photo opportunities. For indoor ceremonies, The Orangery is a unique event space. The original piece of Victorian architecture is a dome-shaped building with glass making up the walls and curved roof. While allowing natural light to flow throughout this space keeps guests sheltered for ceremonies and breakfasts for up to 60 people. Receptions that run long into the night can take place at various locations on this venue’s grounds with the aid of a marquee. By choosing Hopton Court, you are given complete creative license in order to create the wedding you deserve.

Run, Don't Walk to Book!

We had the most wonderful few days at Hopton Court Estate this week for my daughter & son in law’s wedding.
I cannot recommend this venue highly enough, from the first point of contact back in the autumn 2022, we have received nothing but first class service from the whole team. The “dry hire” basis means you really can tailor your wedding to suit down to every last detail. The Estate itself is stunningly beautiful, the grand house, where the bridal party prepared in the morning, beautiful orangery where we had the outdoor ceremony, fabulous coach house & courtyard where we held the reception and all the gardens, lake, Scouts Wood and views of rolling Shropshire hills are simply divine and provide the most magical photo opportunities, you really will be blown away it’s so breath-taking.
Alongside this you have a fantastic range of ancillary buildings which your suppliers are able to use to create your event as well as a huge walled garden area suitable for festivals. Hopton really does have it all, but don’t be put off by the size, we only had an intimate wedding for 50 people in the day and 75 in the evening and the spaces we used were perfect.
Special mention though has to go to Rhys the Estate Manager who works tirelessly the whole time to help you create your special day, nothing we asked of him was too much trouble, he is a fountain of knowledge about the estate and provided solutions to any small problems and issues that arose.
All that is left to say is run, don’t walk to get this venue booked in, you will not regret it, I just wish we could do it all again next week!

Incredible Venue, Our Perfect Day

Myself and my husband had our wedding day at Hopton Court at the end of May, and what an absolutely incredible day it was! We made full use of all of the stunning grounds, having our ceremony in the woods, our drinks reception in the Coachhouse Courtyard, our Wedding Breakfast in the Orangery and our evening reception in the Walled Garden, and we believe that having so many different “sections” of the day made it so much more special and memorable than if we’d had everything in one place.

The grounds are absolutely spectacular, and all of our guests were blown away by how wonderful our day was.

In the months leading up to our wedding, Rhys, Hopton’s Events Manager, couldn’t have done more to help us make our dream day a reality. He was friendly, professional, and generous with both his time and his support and it was clear to us that he was genuinely excited about hosting our special day.

Charlotte, the owner of the estate, was equally as helpful and as wonderful and again went over and above to help us make our dream day as perfect as it was. She even leant us an extension lead the morning of our wedding when it became evident we needed an extra one.

If you’re considering booking Hopton Court for your wedding, or indeed for any other function, then we would absolutely urge you to do just that. Even for a relatively small wedding (just 50 day and an additional 30 or so evening guests), it was utterly perfect, and you’ll be in exceptional hands with Rhys and Charlotte.

A million thanksgiving for a lifetime of happy memories.

Festival Wedding Sept ‘22

Myself & my husband held our Festival Wedding here at Hopton Court this past summer.
From the very first viewing to our after wedding farewell, Charlotte, Rhys & Clare were a fantastic team.
They were accommodating to our needs, easy to communicate with, friendly, caring & professional.
The grounds are stunning and the space was just what we had in mind to host our Wedding day.
We had the ceremony outside the gorgeous Orangery - great for photos. Then our reception was held in a large tipi in the walled garden.
Guest were able to camp/glamp in the neighbouring field.
Bride & Bridesmaid were able to get ready in the main house - albeit due to Storm Norma earlier in the year, the scaffolding made it a tad difficult- it certainly did not take away from the experience.
The coach house and court yard was used to welcome guests and we held a small reception there the night before.
We couldn’t recommend Charlotte & the team enough for any event or celebration!
Thank you Charlotte, Rhys & Clare! X

Amazing wedding venue

We got married in a civil service in the Orangery at Hopton Court in 2003 with 90 guests and an evening reception for 100 more with a marquee in front of the coach house. The venue is amazing - such a great setting for a wedding and the perfect backdrop for photographs. The day was tailored to our specific requirements. The wedding planning service offered now will make arranging the prefect wedding even easier.

The Large, Fun, Relaxed Wedding I Had Always Dreamed Of

We really wanted a large wedding with all our friends and family, we didn't want to worry about numbers and having to trim the guest list. Having a large marquee in the court yard at the Coach House at Hopton Court, having tipis outside for the pig roast and bar, and using the Coach House as well meant we could accomodate all of our 400 guests (200 in the day and another 200 in the evening). We wanted our wedding to be realxed, informal and fun and it was everything we had dreamed of. We have so many happy memories of the day. The venue was fantastic with plenty of space, car parking and beautuiful grounds for photographs. There is also lovely accomodation locally; we stayed at the Hopton Crown for the weekend, with all the wedding party using the cottages there to get ready for the day. I can highly recommend Hopton Court as a wedding venue and loved that it was very much our day with everythig exactly as we wanted it.

Perfect Wedding Venue

We chose Hopton Court to get married and it couldn't have been a better choice. Rhys and the rest of the team worked tirelessly to make sure everything went perfectly. It's a beautiful venue with the Manor house and all its history, the stunning orangery where we had the ceremony and wonderfully sized coach house where we had the reception. All of our guests said how great the venue and the staff were. Would 100% recommend viewing it if you're looking for the perfect wedding venue.

Excellent!!!

First meeting Charlotte we knew we were onto a winner with this venue. There are so many special areas and we wanted to use as much of the venue as possible. On our next meeting we were introduced to Rhys who was brilliant throughout, very professional and easy to get hold of, supporting our ideas and encouraging individuality of our day. The day before, day of and day after the whole team are on hand to help, running around and supporting in the background to ensure things go as smoothly as possible. We had the most incredible day and would highly recommend this stunning venue! Thank you so much to the Hopton Court team, a million times over, for helping to make it so special!

Wedding Photoshoot and Picnic

After having to cancel our large wedding celebration twice, we had to arrange a much smaller event. The team at Hopton Court were extremely helpful, professional and supportive in this and I would highly recommend. I could not fault them in any way and the venue is amazing. Such a beautiful location.

What a party

Everyone has a idea of what their special day will be. We wanted to be surrounded by our friends and family in the day and enjoy beautiful food and drink and at night we wanted a party. This is exactly what we got and more. The orangery was a stunning location to make our vows and we took some beautiful pictures in the gardens. So many possibilities in one area
