We had our civil ceremony and reception at Sandon hall. When we saw the place for the first time, we knew it was perfect to have our special day there.Sent on 23/10/2018
The conservatory, library and garden were very beautiful!
We love our flowers.. Breige made sure they were perfect.
It's been 3 years since our wedding. Our family and friends still talk about how beautiful and special our day was.

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!!!Sent on 12/09/2021

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!Sent on 20/08/2021
