What a day!

My husband and I (still feels weird!) got married here on 6th November 2021 and what an amazing day it was!
From the moment we set a date, Melissa and the team could not do enough for us and they went above and beyond every step of the way.

The weather wasn’t the best on the day itself, but with a beautiful venue like this, it didn’t matter at all!

Harry Potter Themed Perfect Wedding

What can I say we had the most perfect magical wedding we could have ever wished for and more! Laura and Mellissa at Sandon have been the best! So professional and their communication is phenomenal. We originally booked our wedding in 2018 with a different team, who we didn’t really need to speak to until our wedding in 2020. However, due to covid we had to move our wedding and the dream team Melissa and Laura contacted us. We had a zoom call in 2020 explaining the new rules and what would happen. We sadly made the decision to move the wedding to 2021. Whilst on our zoom call they met our dog Monty and said we are now allowed him at the wedding. This was the one and only, but huge perk of moving the wedding.

2021 arrived and covid was still around so again we moved the wedding to 2022. Once again Laura and Melissa were amazing with communicating with us and working with us to accommodate the changes.

2022 arrived and finally meetings started, we (and Monty) sat down with Laura and Melissa to go through everything. They had everything on hand from previous conversations, gave us a fresh tour and truly went through everything with us. On the run up to the wedding when I began to worry, they were on the end of the phone straight away and on email to answer any questions and reassure us.

The day finally arrived……wow once again Laura and Melissa were there with us all day. They often popped up with photos of the rooms to check I was happy. Also, just pooping in to see how everything was and check we didn’t need anymore tea or fizz. Then throughout the day they were on hand with anything, and the organisation was next level!

I can’t recommend them enough and Sandon Hall is simply stunning that speaks for itself.

Thank you so much for everything, the day was more than we ever wished for!

The best wedding venue!

Well, what can i say, we had the most perfect day EVER, the best day of our lives! Sandon Hall is the most picturesque wedding venue. When we first visited Sandon Hall we were absolutely blown away by the sight, it is simply stunning, each room just as grand as the last. We knew as soon as we stepped foot in the 'conservatory' that this was the one! The grounds are absolutely breathtaking - as is the drive up to the venue, and it is all exclusively yours for the day! The wedding planners were honestly the nicest, most helpful people! Melissa was our wedding planner and words cannot express how fabulous she was - from first meeting to the day itself, Melissa gave us her all, nothing was too much to ask- she really is an absolute angel. I cannot thank her enough for everything she did to ensure our day was as perfect as it could be - and it was exactly that - PERFECT! Melissa was there at the end of the phone/email each time we needed her - always reassuring and forever resolving any issues that occurred! We will forever be so grateful that we had Melissa looking after us throughout the wedding planning process and having her there on the day was so lovely it really put me at ease – she really is a huge asset to Sandon Hall! The catering company vanilla in all seasons were all amazing - the food was exceptional – all the guests commented on the incredible venue and amazing food and drink. The day itself was like a dream – I felt like a princess from a fairytale at Sandon Hall. And to top it off we stayed at the accommodation that is a short way down the drive from the Hall itself- which is just as stunning as the wedding venue and so elegant and stylish! I cannot explain how lucky we felt – getting married at the most beautiful venue, with the most incredible staff, food, drink, DJ and accommodation! It really was by far, the very best day of our lives, thank you Melissa and everyone at Sandon Hall for making our dreams come true!!!

Exceeded all expectations

From the day we went to view Sandon Hall it has been everything we wanted for our wedding experience. Laura showed us around and was exceedingly helpful pulling together what we had envisaged. No question or request was too much hassle. We had a slightly alternative wedding and the team spoke with suppliers and ensured we got what we envisaged. Lawrence was our wedding coordinator and was INCREDIBLE! Lawrence had everything under control and knowing we could trust him eased out wedding stress. He went above and beyond to ensure we had the perfect day. Mick the care taker of the building was so helpful after the wedding when we collecting our bits.

Thank you to the team of Sandon Hall for such a perfect day!

Absolute perfection!

We fell in love with Sandon hall the moment we viewed it but we couldn’t have anticipated the quality of absolutely everything with this venue. We used all of their recommended suppliers and couldn’t fault a single thing if we tried. We also stayed at the on-site accommodation - The Agency and this was also perfect. The quality of everything at this venue was five star, absolutely amazing. Melissa was our go to person and was honestly a Wonder Woman! She knew what we needed before we needed it and went above and beyond to give us the absolute best day of our lives. She even looked after our baby during the day for us when he had had enough. If I could change anything I wouldn’t! The absolute best day of our lives! We are so glad we chose Sandon hall and would choose it again in a heart beat! Thank you for giving us the best day!

Incredible venue, we had the wedding of our dreams

Wow, I honestly don’t know where to start. Sandon Hall and their team are something truly special. Lucie, Melissa, Julie and the rest of their gorgeous team are honestly the warmest, kindest and most professional team. They were all brilliant through the whole planning process, keeping me on track, responding so quickly to any queries I had on email and on the phone, and always making time for us and being so accommodating. Lucie and Melissa were there on our wedding day, and the the whole day was seamless and completely faultless from start to finish. Everything was just perfect. All of the wedding suppliers that Sandon Hall work with and recommended to us were fantastic, Estate Boys (Dj and Drinks), Flowers by Breige (Florist), Five Rivers (Food) to name a few were excellent. I feel extremely emotional and grateful for all the work that was going on in the background, that we were completely oblivious to, to ensure we had the day of our dreams. Our guests said they felt like they were on the set of Bridgeton all day!! Our family and friends have actually been gushing since the wedding saying it is the best wedding they have ever been to. It is a spectacular venue, but the level of professionalism as well as warmth from the Sandon Hall team makes them elite at what they do - they are honestly experts. There are so many beautiful parts to Sandon Hall, in particular the Conservatory, and the Saloon for the wedding breakfast. There are so many different spaces for guests to enjoy, and it means it’s perfect for all ages attending. It is like no other venue we had ever seen, it’s a hidden gem. The party in the evening was also brilliant, we had the best night danced all evening and really loved every second. I felt completely relaxed and just happy all day, was not worried about anything at all as I knew it was all in hand. We also stayed at the Agency accommodation on-site for the wedding weekend, it is a huge 4 bed house which is sheer luxury and was a beautiful space to stay over the wedding weekend. Highly recommend booking and staying at the Agency if you have booked your wedding at Sandon Hall. I feel so grateful that we were able to get married at Sandon Hall. It was an experience I will never forget, and feel eternally grateful to all of the Sandon Hall team- in particular Lucie, Melissa and Julie. Thank you so much. Sophia & James x

A magical day!

From the moment we met the Sandon team - we knew that this was where we wanted to get married and who we wanted to run the day.

The venue is just effortlessly classy and beautiful, which gives it a relaxed and warm feeling - it doesn’t have to try hard to be an incredible space.

The team listened to what we wanted from the day and were flexible, accommodating and practical in addition to being personable and bubbly. There was never the phrase “that’s not how we do it”.

We also hired the Agency which was perfect for an evening surrounded by friends and family before the big day.

The day itself was seamless and ran amazingly. We cannot thank Sandon enough.

The most magical day!

The team at Sandon Hall are incredible! Highly organised, thoughtful and get to know their couples well and with this, make valuable and insightful suggestions. The lead up to the day was effortless and on the actual day, a well organised team that kept everything running like clockwork. The venue itself is steeped in history and is maintained to an exceptional standard. The best part of our day was having our dogs share it with us and once again, the flexibility of the team made this extra special for us. We cannot thank the team enough for all that they did! We only wish we could do it all again - maybe a renewal is on the cards?!

Our perfect day- 16.07.22

Sandon Hall was the most perfect/magical venue for our wedding day. Melissa and the team were amazing from start to finish. Communication was fantastic and we felt at ease throughout the whole process. The supplies that Sandon work with were also fantastic and all of our guests commented on how delicious the food and drinks were. I wish we could do the whole day again. We loved it, thank you!

A truly amazing day!

From the first moment of meeting Melissa and the rest of the team at Sandon Hall the service and professionalism was outstanding. We couldn’t have asked for a better day and the team ensured everything ran to plan.
The venue itself is a wonderful building set in beautiful gardens making some of the photos and memories truly spectacular.

Absolutely perfect!

We really couldn't have wished for a better venue for our wedding. Not many impressive, beautiful venues offer weddings for small numbers. Sandon Halls Small and Sensational package was absolutely perfect for our day - we had the luxury of an amazing venue and service for our little wedding and both us and our guests were all blown away. The team were super attentive and helpful from start to finish and beyond, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sandon Hall to anyone in the future. Incredibly happy with our big day, thank you so much Sandon Hall x

Five Star Venue

After looking for a little while for a Staffordshire venue we were completely blown away when we found Sandon Hall on our doorstep! The venue is the epitome of romance and beauty and I still cannot believe we were lucky enough to get married in such a stunning place.

From the moment we had our first tour by the wonderful Melissa we knew this is where we wanted our wedding and the professionalism of the planners Melissa, Laura and Jade was second to none, nothing was too much to ask and communication was exemplary.

The food was provided by the recommended caterer Vanilla in all Seasons which everyone complimented how outstanding the quality was. The staff were incredible and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed on the day.

The bar and DJ again were recommended by the venue, The Estate Boys, who were fabulous on the day. The staff were lovely and the drinks provided were amazing. A fantastic five star service and would totally recommend.

I genuinely cannot recommend Sandon Hall enough, we had to change from our originally planned April date to December with only three months notice and Melissa especially could not have been more amazing in helping us. We can never thank you all enough for making our day so wonderful x

5 Stars is not enough!

We will never be able to thank Sandon Hall enough for making our dream wedding day a reality. It’s not somewhere either of us had ever heard of before and found it through Google, so weren’t really sure what to expect, but from the moment we drove through the gates to the long driveway, we knew it was the one for us! Everytime we have been back since that initial visit, we have still got butterflies driving up to it. Not only is the venue obviously stunning, but the team are second to none. As soon as we got in the car to leave after our first visit, I remember saying to my fiancé that I trusted them 100% and knew we would be in good hands there, which turned out to be completely true. All of our (many) questions were answered promptly and professionally and we were never made to feel that any request was too much. People say that planning a wedding is one of the most stressful things you can do, but even during the height of the pandemic, we never felt that way as the team were so understanding and flexible. All of our guests commented on how lovely Laura was in particular and how she was so patient and enthusiastic about everything. She was there all day offering top tips and advice and made us feel so at ease, it was like having another friend there who just happened to be calmly coordinating the whole thing! A couple of our engaged guests even commented that they wished they could change venues. None of our guests had ever been to Sandon Hall before, but we know of at least a few that will definitely be returning, everyone was so in awe of how stunning the venue is, how delicious the food was and how amazing the team are. I could go on forever about how grateful we are and it would never feel like enough! Thank you so much Laura, Melissa and Jade, we will find any excuse we can to come back!

Wow wow wow wow!

Wow. From the moment we walked into Sandon Hall we KNEW it was the one. No amount of photos or posts can do justice for the beautiful grounds and rooms. We got married in the conservatory and it was simply beautiful! Not only is the venue itself stunning but you get to have the whole site to yourself! That isn't very common and it is so amaIng and personal just to have your wedding party at such a beautiful venue. There is accommodation available to rent and a pub close by for guests to stay.

The wedding planners (Melissa and Laura) are UNBELIEVABLE. They are not only the loveliest people that you will ever meet but they care so much, are amazing at planning and can't do enough for you! I really feel like we had such a close bond with them during our many build up visits, this made the day even more special because they effectively felt like part of our family. Melissa would reply to my crazy emails at any time and made me feel at ease the whole way through. No request was too much! We cannot thank Melissa and Laura enough for making our wedding the easiest thing to plan and the most enjoyable day of our lives. They are just superb!

We bought into the package and had Vanilla All Seasons as our caterer, they worked so well with Sandon and the Estate Boys to give us everything that we wanted on our day. Our DJ was even included which made the planning so easy as Melissa and Laura just coordinated it all with them!

Sandon Hall is the most amazing venue, the staff who work there deliver perfect weddings day after day but really do care deeply about each wedding. Highly recommended!
