You and your guests can also enjoy garden games, as well as exploring the stunning grounds that are exclusively yours during your stay.

We offer the freedom and flexibility to choose your own caterer, drink options (with free corkage and an alcohol licence to hire a bar) and choose of entertainment for the evening. Owner Elaine will work to assist couples throughout their planning journey by recommending local vendors who will make their dream wedding a reality.

Perfect for a rustic, relaxed and joyful wedding!

From the outset of planning our wedding we wanted an un-fussy, fun, relaxed and rustic wedding. The Grain Loft absolutely fitted the bill and Elaine and Mark made this vision come to complete fruition. We both love being outdoors and so the venue with its amazing views was perfect. Nothing was ever too much trouble, they were both forever reassuring especially as the day grew closer and the plans had to change due to …. Storm Antoni! The day arrived with strong winds and rain for much of the day, unfortunately robbing us of our outside drinks and photos with the amazing Shropshire countryside but with Mark and Elaine’s help we were seamlessly able to switch our welcome drinks into the marquee which we had hired locally from Enterprise House. At all times they remain totally unflappable and calm.

Llanhedric House was also a lovely venue for housing family and friends. Very sociable and with a touch of luxury. With the games rooms, table tennis table, bow and arrows there was plenty for everyone to do and it lent itself to our wedding party getting to know each other.

The Grain Loft for the ceremony and the reception (an afternoon tea) looked spectacular with many thanks to Jane’s Petals for the simple yet beautiful floral display. The Loft upstairs was beautifully decorated, with lots of twinkles and feeling all very intimate with its oak beams and rustic feel. It was the perfect size for our wedding party of 58 people. The transformation of the Loft from the ceremony to our bridal suite for the evening was simply magical with some lovely touches (thank you for the sparkly Elaine and Mark!).

Our friends commented that Mark and Elaine were ‘always there but not there’, supportive yet unobtrusive. This summed them up perfectly. We simply cannot thank our hosts enough for making our day so special. If you are looking for a small to medium sized wedding in gorgeous surroundings with a relaxed feel then do consider the Grain Loft, we cannot recommend this highly enough.

Beautiful and perfect venue

Beautiful venue with two very lovely owners who go above and beyond to make sure your day is perfect - they decorated the venue beautifully, it was just how we had imagined! We had a small wedding with just under 20 guests and it was the most perfect day.

The venue is beautiful from every single angle, we didn’t get the best weather but it didn’t ruin the day, we had a fire pit outside with country views for miles. We wish we could live the day all over again! Our families are still talking about it two weeks after the day :)

The most perfect venue for our intimate wedding

A few weeks have gone by since we tied the knot at this gorgeous venue, and our guests are still in awe of it all (so are we!). From the very moment we first entered the grounds of The Grain Loft many months ago whilst planning the wedding, we knew it was the place we'd want to book and say 'I do'.

We got married on 20/09/2023 and it was the most perfect of days. Simply put, Elaine and Mark are incredible. They are wonderful hosts, who went above and beyond to make us and our guests feel comfortable, at ease, and looked after. We can't thank them enough!

The Grain Loft can be found in the most beautiful of settings with a stunning backdrop of the Shropshire Hills, and the venue itself is rustic and charming and everything we could have hoped for and more. There are so many wonderful aspects to this venue that made it the perfect place for our intimate wedding (20 guests), the beautiful dining area, the ceremony room with its stunning beams and architecture, that later becomes the most gorgeous honeymoon suite, right down to the subtleties in the decor and such beautiful accommodations that made our experience from start to finish just so wonderful.

We stayed in Llanhedric House, (right next door to the Grain Loft) along with our family the day before the wedding and this was an amazing feature because it meant that we could settle in and not have to worry about travelling up with everything, and ensured a great night's rest before the big day. The House is beautifully equipped with everything you'd need for a fun stay, the Games room brought us all a lot of fun and downtime, and such an amazing kitchen and dining area, that allowed us to all gather together and reel with excitement the day before the wedding day, and then on the day itself, it served as a great place for guests to unwind.

We knew from our early meetings with Elaine and Mark that we were in the safest of hands, and looking back, they did so much behind the scenes, that meant we and our guests could relax and just bask in the beautiful day. They liaised with all of our suppliers ahead of time and on the day, and they swiftly set up a marquee for us when it started to rain. They are so approachable and so lovely, we're just so glad to have met them, and we can't recommend their wedding venue enough. It's dreamy, and romantic and everything we wanted. Our guests have been to so many weddings over the years, and they have all said, this was the best wedding they've ever been to. And we believe that not just The Grain Loft, but Elaine and Mark themselves are part of the reason why. Thank you, both.
