Full Description
An enchanting country estate and family residence, Davenport House is exclusively yours on your special day. Set amidst picturesque Shropshire countryside, this idyllic Georgian house was extensively refurbished in 2017. Now you can step inside this magical venue and make yourself at home, celebrating your wedding day surrounded by its history, warmth and elegance. Entering this great house through the magnificent double doors, you might choose to say ‘I do’ in The Great Hall. Brimming with character, this is the very heart of the home and the perfect place in which to say your vows. Alternatively, marry in another of the great rooms, or between the pillars on the front steps of Davenport House for a truly unique setting. The Great Hall leads through to the beautiful Saloon with its marquetry floor. It is here that you might enjoy welcome drinks and canapés along with breathtaking views over the lawns beyond. Outside, the terrace, lily pond and secluded secret garden provide a sublime setting in which to mingle with a glass of fizz on warmer days. The Drawing Room lures your guests in to dine, with original panelling painted in elegant ‘tea green’. The specialist on-site wedding event planners and expert caterers will work closely with you to help create the most spectacular day, complete with stunning wedding food and drink. As day turns to evening, The Great Hall becomes your dance floor, while guests might also choose to relax in The Saloon or The Drawing Room. Six luxurious en-suite bedrooms, a further 3 double bedrooms including a plush honeymoon suite and impressive breakfast area, are located in the main house, while four cottages in the grounds offer self-catering accommodation. A further cottage, The Stable, is offered as your bridal preparation area. From intimate to lavish, and from contemporary style to the more traditional, Davenport House is your country estate that can make your dream wedding a reality.

Can't do enough!
Went to view the wedding location chosen by our daughter & her fiancé. Was shown around by Lizzie who was very enthusiastic but we found the venue sold itself. Its beautiful & the staff can't do enough for you. Got to wait 2 years for the wedding but will certainly be worth it!

Nothing short of fantastic
I’m Mike’s father and have considerable experience of the service industry and customer service. I feel compelled to send this email to both thank and congratulate the ENTIRE team that I experienced during my stay. From the moment of being greeted on the steps by Charley, to being shown to our room, to the staff serving canapes and drinks in the garden, to the whole dining experience, to the cheerfulness and efficiency of the bar team. Then in the morning, well before 8am (when breakfast was served), after going outside for a cigarette I bumped into Karen (I think that was her name) and asked her if there was any tea available yet ? She enquired as to what I would like and then proceeded to tell me she would bring it to our room, which she duly did very promptly. I also passed the cleaning team and spoke to Anna and her colleague and told them I could see and appreciate how hard and quickly they were working. They indeed where most polite and engaging. You will no doubt realise that I work in the Contract Cleaning industry, where praise and credit is not something that happens too regularly and the work of frontline people is often taken for granted. For that reason I would be most grateful if you could share my comments with the whole team (I’m sure there are others that I didn’t experience, but no doubt do just as good a job). The level of service and overall experience was nothing short of fantastic. Thank you all so much for helping make Mike & Becky’s special day so memorable.

We wish we could do it all over again!
We recently got married at Davenport house and cannot thank the staff enough for making it all so special. From start to finish in the planning process and leading up to the day itself we were impressed with the professionalism yet warm and friendly welcome we got every time we visited for our meetings. Nothing was too much trouble and we want to pay a special mention to Charley, Iain, Lizzie, Joe, Talluah, Einstein 🐶 and all the amazing staff at Davenport, they are incredible. The food is amazing, the rooms, the views, the logistics on the day, it really is the most beautiful wedding venue to get married at.We wish we could do it all over again! Becky and Michael Prime

Fairytale
Our wedding day was a fairytale, everything we could have dreamed of and more. Lizzie and Charley were fantastic in their support, organisation and professionalism in planning our wedding. The venue is simply spectacular- breathtaking. Our guests were blown away. The day ran so smoothly it was simply perfect. The food was out of this world our guests couldn't get enough. All the staff at the house went above and beyond to ensure we were happy and having a great day. The team were also extremely supportive of last minute changes/additions. The Davenport experience was truly wonderful and I'm sad to see it end right from our initial meetings, food tasting and finally to our special day. Thank you: Lizzie, Charley, Ian and all of the team for a truly memorable day for us and our guests. Mr and Mrs Kissane.

FAQ
(10)

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

All of them!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Ask as many questions as you need. Feeling comfortable on the day is one of the most important, and often most overlooked, parts of your day. So don't be afraid to ask questions! If you're worried about anything then we are here to help and we would much rather ease any concerns you have than have you stressed on the day!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

It is always lovely to see couples paying tribute to their parent's weddings. For example, a part of the mother of the bride's dress reused, or the jewellery. I had a groom who wore his father cufflinks and it really spurred quite an emotional reaction, it's such a small gesture but so meaningful!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Stylish, chic, contemporary, relaxed and timeless

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Truly, every part of Davenport House is instagram gold, however I think the staircase is pretty iconic!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We have and it was so exciting! Sadly, we can't say who...

What’s your favourite canapé?

Jimmy Garica's Low and Slow cooked lamb - always a winner, absolutely mouth watering

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Would you judge us if we said pork pies?

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Our hidden pavilion, located in the tress of the gardens. This area is easily missed unless you are looking for it, featuring our wood fire pizza oven and swing BBQ perfect location for evening street food. This cosy area has tables and chairs to enjoy evening eats and cosy blankets if there is a chill in the evening air.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The relationships we have with our couples. We love that our couples come back to visit us, we even have a secret rose garden where we plant a rose on each couples 1st anniversary, it means you always have a reason to come and visit us and we love it!
