Full Description
Sandon Hall is one of the most sought-after wedding venues in the Midlands. The country mansion’s magnificent interior and picturesque gardens make it the perfect location for a wedding, civil partnership ceremony or reception. Our choice of elegant rooms are ideal for indoor weddings, seating up to 120 people, free of any distractions or other parties. Our Temple Garden is a quiet and intimate setting for Outdoor Ceremonies with far reaching views of the Staffordshire Countryside. We have our very own church nestled within the estate. The Grade I listed, 13th Century All Saints Church is a picture-perfect English rural church, with a meandering driveway through 400 acres of parkland leading the wedding party to the hall to continue the celebration. The Hall itself is set amid 50 acres of formal gardens, designed by the esteemed landscape architect William Eames. Spring and summer weddings in particular see guests spill out onto the elegant terrace and sweeping lawns, where younger guests can run freely. From 2021, we will have on-site accommodation with our newly renovated, light and spacious lodge nestled within the Estate, which will be available to book alongside your wedding. In addition to period charms, the house provides modern comforts and a relaxing experience for the wedding couple, their families or guests. The property is equipped with 4 double bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and private parking and garden.

THE BEST DAY IN THE WHOLE WORLD!
Not sure where to even start but a HUGE thank you to Laura and everyone at Sandon Hall for the wedding of dreams!! From enquiring a few years ago to the actual day every step has been amazing and flawless and Laura couldn’t have been better helping us organise our dream day. She really took the time to listen to exactly what we wanted and we felt she was so invested in our day. We looked at a lot of venues before we went to Sandon Hall, and it genuinely felt like the first place that wasn’t just a wedding “factory” and where the staff were just so lovely and keen to give us the best day. We stayed overnight at the Agency- a four bedroom large luxury cottage- a walkable distance from the hall. This meant our getting ready morning was super relaxed in a beautiful house (all kindly stocked with breakfast supplies!!) The bridal suite in the hall is breathtaking and is perfect for stunning photos. We had our wedding ceremony in the Temple Garden and it couldn’t have been more magical. The gardens themselves are all beautiful and so well maintained and the setting was just perfect (and the prettiest aisle to walk down EVER) Afterwards we had a lovely drinks reception on the lawns and in the conservatory which again is fabulous. The dinner and disco in the evening was the most fun. (And the food from their preferred caterers was brilliant). All of our guests commented on what a fantastic venue Sandon Hall is and that is largely due to their staff. Honestly Laura we can’t thank you enough! (Even when trying to get a very wine drunk couple to stick to the timeline later on in the night!) Thank you!!!! xxxxx

The most incredible venue & team - day of dreams!
We married at Sandon Hall in July this year and we honestly cannot put into words how beautiful our wedding day was. Without a doubt, it was all down to the amazing team that looked after us and their brilliant suppliers. From day one, we just had the best experience we could have asked for. Melissa worked with us to plan our big day and I cannot thank her enough for all her hard work and dedication in ensuring our day was everything we’d dreamed of - she is just so brilliant at what she does. Melissa and the teams attention to detail is second to none, we didn’t have to worry about a thing as they were so on it - everything was just planned to perfection! You wedding day is such a special and important day and you can tell Melissa and the team love what they do, and just want you to have the best day ever. All our friends and family have commented on what an amazing day it was and how beautiful the venue is! Sandon Hall is just gorgeous and so well looked after. All the different rooms are stunning in their own unique way, and the photo opportunities in the beautiful grounds are endless! I could go on and on about this place and it’s fantastic team, we’ll just be forever grateful that we chose to get married here… Thank you again to Sandon Hall - our day really was everything we’d dreamed of x

Going to extra mile
Laura and the team at Sandon Hall were so helpful, in the 2 year run up to our wedding and then on the actual day. Laura offered advice on all aspects and was always quick to reply to an email or happy to arrange as many face to face visits as we wanted. On the day Laura ensured it all ran smoothly, being there to quietly make sure everything was sorted while giving us lots of space and time and not intruding. Of course the venue itself is stunning, we were spoilt for choice with rooms to have the ceremony in and the upstairs bedrooms for getting ready in are so grand and spacious, it makes you feel so important. Wet weather was also never a worry as the décor and space inside is stunning for photographs if we weren't able to go out, but luckily it was dry and we therefore made use of the vast grounds.

The perfect day
What can say, not only is Sandon Hall a stunning venue the staff are also amazing. Laura was awesome from start to finish; she recommended restaurants and hotels for our guests as we didn't know the area very well. We also booked the Agency which is a beautiful cottage on the estate (totally worth it). On our wedding day Laura and the team went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly; steaming dresses, helping with boutonniere and keeping us on track. We had a brilliant time and can not recommend this venue enough.

The venue where fairytales really do come true
We got married at the stunning dream venue 11th June 2022 after moving our original date due to covid . From start to finish the team at Sandon hall were excellent. Melissa and Laura were amazing, nothing was too much trouble , they made me feel so good about myself on our wedding day and the little touches they did were 5 star. Sandon hall will always be my special place and the lead up to the wedding day was so worth the wait. The care and attention they gave us was first class , they treated us like royalty and looked after us so well . We cannot wait to pop back to show our photos and catch up . The lovely touch of a card and a beautiful candle given to us was so cute . Thank you also to the care taker who gave us a lift back to the cottage on the evening of our wedding , such lovely kind person . We will forever cherish the memories we had here on our wedding day and would always consider this venue to other couples to be . Thank you all for making our dreams come true , best day ever thank you . Love Mr and Mrs Ward x

Harry Potter Themed Perfect Wedding
What can I say we had the most perfect magical wedding we could have ever wished for and more! Laura and Mellissa at Sandon have been the best! So professional and their communication is phenomenal. We originally booked our wedding in 2018 with a different team, who we didn’t really need to speak to until our wedding in 2020. However, due to covid we had to move our wedding and the dream team Melissa and Laura contacted us. We had a zoom call in 2020 explaining the new rules and what would happen. We sadly made the decision to move the wedding to 2021. Whilst on our zoom call they met our dog Monty and said we are now allowed him at the wedding. This was the one and only, but huge perk of moving the wedding. 2021 arrived and covid was still around so again we moved the wedding to 2022. Once again Laura and Melissa were amazing with communicating with us and working with us to accommodate the changes. 2022 arrived and finally meetings started, we (and Monty) sat down with Laura and Melissa to go through everything. They had everything on hand from previous conversations, gave us a fresh tour and truly went through everything with us. On the run up to the wedding when I began to worry, they were on the end of the phone straight away and on email to answer any questions and reassure us. The day finally arrived……wow once again Laura and Melissa were there with us all day. They often popped up with photos of the rooms to check I was happy. Also, just pooping in to see how everything was and check we didn’t need anymore tea or fizz. Then throughout the day they were on hand with anything, and the organisation was next level! I can’t recommend them enough and Sandon Hall is simply stunning that speaks for itself. Thank you so much for everything, the day was more than we ever wished for!
