I cannot recommend it enough
We got married at Birdsall House in May 2023 and I cannot recommend it enough. Firstly, it is a stunning venue, the house and grounds are so beautiful. The set up is very flexible and we had the option of having our ceremony either inside, outside in the old chapel ruins or the church on the grounds. A lot of stately home venues restrict you to a marquee outside so it was refreshing to be able to make the most of the amazing ball room in the house for our wedding breakfast. They really make you feel like it is your home for the weekend, and I can’t stress how much that enhanced our enjoyment of our wedding. The bridal suite and guest bedrooms are all beautifully decorated, spacious and have amazing views of the countryside. There is nothing prescriptive about how they want you to have your wedding at all and you can conjure up as many ideas as you like and they will be able to recommend a supplier to make it a reality. Their list of preferred suppliers is fantastic and they all work exceptionally well together making the build up to the day and the day itself completely free of stress so you can get on with enjoying yourself. I can’t see any way anyone could not have their best possible wedding if they choose Birdsall House.

Home from home, Best day ever!
Where do I begin with Birdsall House, it is a home from home, where you are greeted with similes, a biscuit and cup of tea. Our whole wedding planning process was stress free thanks to Birdsall, they were so helpful and supportive with everything. When it came to the big day they shined even brighter with how seamless the day flowed, the subtle finishing touches and how the Birdsall charm helped elevate the day. My husband and I highly recommend this venue. It has character, charm, does not feel heavily commercialised and is one of a kind. Thank you Birdsall for everything

Magical from start to finish!
We chose Birdsall House for our venue for our wedding this summer in August. Everything was absolutely perfect. I can’t thank Stephanie and Cara enough for accommodating us and our family for the weekend and organizing the most amazing wedding we could ask for. The house is so special and beautiful due to being family owned and so much history, and we were delighted to be able to use the property grounds for different parts, such as the ruins for the ceremony, the terrace for reception drinks, the ballroom for dinner, and then the lawn for an evening marquee. The planning and organization was just seamless and made for a magical event. Thank you again!

Everything was absolutely fantastic!
We had our wedding at Birdsall House earlier this summer and I cannot recommend it enough! Everything was absolutely fantastic! It’s a beautiful house set in private grounds and enough bedrooms to sleep immediate family. There is also a church onsite or multiple locations for a civil ceremony inside or outside in the stunning ruins - making it the perfect weekend wedding venue. We are so so pleased with our photos. It was a pleasure working with Becky (the wedding coordinator) and Lady Cara over the last 2 years making everything easy, coordinating with our suppliers and navigating the ever changing Covid rules. They were always quick to reply and had great suggestions of local suppliers. Nothing was too much for the Birdsall team - they even organised a last minute manicure for the day before the wedding when I was unexpectedly let down. Exceptional service!! On the morning of the wedding itself, nothing was too much trouble and Lady Cara and Becky were always one step ahead taking care of all the organisation. A massive thanks from us and I cannot recommend this venue more highly

First Class Service
We got married here in the summer of 2021, and everything that Birdsall House did for us that weekend and leading up to the event was first class. They are a fantastic team and made us all feel very welcome. I can't recommend it highly enough

We greatly enjoyed our visit on the above occasion and were struck by the quality of the organisation, and the dedication of the staff to provide a quality service, in particular a young man called Harry, who worked tirelessly throughout the day. Thank you.
