Full Description
A Grade II listed building and a family home, found nestling in the Staffordshire countryside, can be yours for a long weekend! Passed down four generations, it evokes both the grandeur of a castle and the intimacy of an Italian wine bar that only the locals know about. Step outside and you’ll stumble upon 3-acres of secluded gardens with beautifully manicured lawns, rockeries, pools and intricate spaces. You’ll discover a rose garden that makes for a unique wedding toast location and a 1920s art deco swimming pool that opens up one-of-a-kind photoshoot opportunities. At Dunwood, we’re not interested in creating a production line, where one couple walks out of the revolving door as another enters. We believe your day should be full of magic, stress-free and above all fun for everyone involved. That’s why we only invite a select number of couples each year to get married at Dunwood, so we can give each one the attention it deserves. Make a difference when you wed at Dunwood, for every wedding held at our historical wedding venue we will make a donation to Cancer research and CLAPA, two charities that are very close to our hearts

It’s only forever…
“It’s only forever”…for this very reason it was important for us to find a venue which reflected us and what we are about. Dunwood Hall surpassed all expectations. Our wedding ceremony and celebrations were absolutely perfect. So many guests commented that it was the best wedding they’d ever been to; it all felt so relaxed, intimate and filled with love. Everything we dreamed of was accommodated - to the finest of personalised details. This is not a run-of-the-mill venue; it is a beautiful, neo-gothic family home which gives guests a luxurious and unique experience for a few lucky couples each year. The house and grounds are stunning- quirky, unique and intimate with acres of fields, and numerous garden areas to explore, alongside a fresh water swimming pool. Multiple indoor areas allowed our friends and family to mingle, dance or chill as they wished. Moving between the sunny orangery, outdoor terrace lounge, dining room, opulent hallway bar with grand piano, music room and the cosy snug with open fire. Erika and Brodie are wonderful hosts, We were encouraged to do things our way rather than worrying about what others expected or what tradition dictates. This ultimately resulted in a wedding which was so meaningful to us, surrounded by the people we wanted to celebrate with. Trust in Erika and Brodie’s experience and advice. They know what works and what doesn’t. Our experience was fully bespoke with ongoing support throughout a year of meticulous planning as well as during our wonderful weekend of love and fun. Erika and Brodie’s attention to detail, friendly comms and wicked sense of humour meant that they became an integral part of our weekend; chatting and celebrating alongside us all, whilst somehow also ensuring the smooth running of events at the same time. That is no mean feat; they are incredible! As a dog-friendly venue it was a joy to have our cavachon as ring-bearer and our friend’s little yorkies as pooch-maids, complete with flower garland collars. Resident doggos, Chisel and Lourdie, were perfect hosts too and even guided some guests to the orangery for the ceremony as they arrived! We recommend booking the venue and on-site accommodation for the entire weekend (Friday to Sunday) as we did. This allowed us time to give 10 of our guests a weekend away whilst also settling in and getting organised well in advance so the wedding day itself was completely stress free. The newly refurbished on-site accommodation is gorgeous! Especially the Bridal suite, with far reaching views of the local hills, an en-suite featuring a roll top bath, and the most beautiful toilet we’ve ever seen! 🤣 As an LGBTQ couple, it was also important for us to choose an inclusive venue where we would be understood and welcomed with open arms. We felt 100% comfortable to be ourselves; allowing us to fully enjoy an amazing and magical experience.

Very Professional and Helpful
I recently visited Dunwood Hall as a photographer. I approached the Kemp-Lovett family to ask if I possibly use the hall as a location for a styled shoot. They were more than accommodating and opened their home to us. So very professional and helpful. Myself and the other suppliers involved in the shoot all said what great hosts they were and such nice people. The House itself is nothing short of majestic, beautifully decorated throughout and the grounds were gorgeous. I really hope I get to work there again in the future. A fantastic, family run business.

Perfect Intimate Venue
We chose Dunwood Hall for our wedding because of its gothic charm and quaint styling. It was the perfect intimate venue for what we wanted and still catered for a large party in the evening. It complimented our style superbly and really gave the retro/vintage feel that we wanted. As a venue it is a little different comprising of numerous intimate and enchanting rooms off the main hall. People would slink away and have quiet drinks or mingle in a busy atmosphere. The gardens are beautiful, again with numerous little pockets of gorgeousness which were perfect for photos. It is definitely a venue with the wow factor whilst keeping its composure and charm for a bespoke and truly magical day. We would absolutely recommend!
