Whether you hold your ceremony here, or down the road, our venue offers the perfect reception location.

Everything that we wanted and more...
Venue Service

By Matt & Beth Carr, on 21 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 27 May 2018

Dear Dawn, Now that we have had chance to catch our breath, Matt and I would like to say thank you so much for all that you did for us to make sure that our wedding day was everything that we wanted ... and so much more. We have lost count of how many messages we have had from our friends and family expressing how much they loved the day and how wonderful they thought the place and people were. I think that both sets of parents are ready to set up a Dawn fan club! We knew that it would be a wonderful day from our first visit but May 27th far exceeded anything that we could ever have hoped for and we are so incredibly grateful for all that you and your wonderful team did for us. We feel so incredibly lucky that you decided to take us on as your calm, caring, enthusiastic and optimistic-about-the-weather attitude meant that we could enjoy every minute of the day as we knew that we were in the very best hands! You were and are wonderful! We hope that you are all well and look forward to visiting Tissington again soon.

Personal Guardian Angel
Venue Service

Louise, You went above and beyond so many times in the run up to and on our wedding day! When we booked Tissington we knew we were getting a stunning venue, but we hadn't expected the amazing service that you gave us - that was so invaluable to us! You truly were like a personal guardian angel to me on the day & I know for certain that my day couldn't have run so smoothly without you there! You never made us feel that anything was too much trouble and it was a real pleasure to have your smiley face there on the day. I can't thank you enough for your hard work ensuring that our day went without a hitch!

It was truly perfect
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Jensen, on 21 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 12 Aug 2017

I cannot thank you enough. You were amazing and we could not have asked for a more perfect day and all thanks to you. All our guests are relaying the same message. Perfect, wonderful, magical . . . . And they are not wrong. You have been great from start to finish and seriously we cannot thank you enough. I'm so sad it's all over and I just want to do it all over again. Could you possibly pass our thanks to Sir Richard and Lady Fitzherbert for letting us have our special day at Tissington Hall. We could not have picked a better place to hold our wedding. Also butlers retreat was divine. A really beautiful place. Not forgetting the breakfast at the tea rooms. The food and service was just lovely. An absolutely amazing experience from start to finish and we really cannot thank everyone enough. We shall be returning to Tissington in the near future and we are looking forward to the enchanted tales which, judging by last years experience will be magical. From the bottom of our hearts thank you all so so so much for giving us lots of magical memories from our wedding day.

We had the best day ever
Venue Service

By Sarah and John, on 10 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 08 Jul 2017

John and I wanted to thank you soooo much for all you did to make our wedding day wonderful. We had the best day ever and really appreciate all your hard work in making everything run smoothly, during all the months of planning and on the day itself. The bridesmaids have commented on how great you were – informing them of where you were putting stuff and what the schedule was…. And thank you for whisking us over to the marquee in the car. I think we’d have been waiting a long time in the hall for the rain to stop!!
