THE best wedding venue there is!
Venue Service

By Alfie & Cheryl Bektas, on 19 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 07 Jul 2017

Words cannot express how perfect a wedding venue Shortmead house is and how hospitable the owners Ian and Marilyn are. We fell in love with the grounds on the first visit and whilst it is already perfect the owners are making improvements to it every week. Ian was incredibly helpful throughout the booking process and explaining everything to us pre-wedding and Marilyn made the day what it was. You can tell that they have incredible experience in co-ordinating a wedding and are always happy to give advice. What I would say makes Shortmead House so special is it is not a ‘wedding venue’ the house is someone’s home and you can feel that during your wedding day. For that reason treat it with the respect it and the owners deserve and there will be no cause for complaint. Every single one of our guests took the time to comment on just how beautiful the house is! Shortmead House is the perfect wedding venue and we couldn’t imagine having a better day anywhere else.

This place is absolutely Stunning. My husband and I had our wedding here at the weekend. Not only did it live up to expectations, it exceeded them. Throughout 2 years of planning and preparing, Ian was such great help and guided us in the right direction with decisions. In the day, both Linda and Marilyn was amazing and made the whole day go so perfectly and smoothly. Right from when we were setting up the decorations, to when we were packing all away. The caterers that are used by shortmead too were just amazing, good service and all guests absolutely loved their food. The venue and ground are just so beautiful, something you would find abroad. Can't recommend enough !
