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.

Fairytale Wedding
I honestly don’t know where to start. From start to finish the staff specifically our planner Laura has been outstanding. Due to COVID we have had to postpone a number of times. Laura was always on hand to make sure we were okay and our wedding planning continued, nothing was ever to much for her or the team. No amount of words could express how grateful we are for Sandon and the way they helped make our fairytale dream wedding come true.

Incredible venue and a fantastic team
We had the best day of our lives at our wedding and can't compliment Laura and the team at Sandon highly enough! Laura was incredibly helpful with planning in the lead up to the event and really helped us to tailor the day and make it feel really personal. There was no request that couldn't be accommodated and things ran incredibly smoothly on the day itself. We were so happy with the service from the team and they were really supportive during the lockdowns, helping us a lot with our many rearrangements. The venue itself is gorgeous, so many of our guests were stunned by the building and the location and we'll definitely find as many excuses as we can to go back! We can't recommend Sandon Hall enough if you're looking for a venue for your wedding. You and your guests will have the best day.

An unforgettable and magical day!
We wanted to say a huge thank you to Laura and all the team at Sandon Hall for the most perfect Wedding day! Sandon Hall is just a stunning venue and we can not recommend it enough to couples looking for their perfect venue. Laura was an absolute star from the first time we met and right through until check out. On the day of the wedding she checked in with us regularly to make sure we were having a great time, and went above and beyond to ensure everything ran smoothly. We were lucky enough to stay in their new accommodation on-site called The Agency - it was perfect for us and we wished we could have stayed all weekend! The house has been decorated to a really high standard and we had everything we could have needed for our stay. The Hall and the grounds looked beautiful. The attention to detail is fantastic and the stunning staircase into the Saloon is a show stopper! We held our ceremony in the temple gardens and it felt so special and intimate. The gardening team does an incredible job and we can’t wait to see our professional pictures within the grounds. All in all, it was an incredible day and we wish we could do it all over again!

Dream Wedding Day
Thank you Laura from Sandon Hall for your support and kindness during the planning stages and on the actual day of our daughter’s wedding. You worked with us throughout to make our dreams a reality. The elegant rooms and beautiful gardens made Sandon Hall the perfect backdrop for our special occasion. It was a truly memorable day for the newly weds and our family and friends. Thank you so much x

The most AMAZING venue EVER!!!
Wow. From the moment we walked into Sandon Hall we KNEW it was the one. No amount of photos or posts can do justice for the beautiful grounds and rooms. We got married in the conservatory and it was simply beautiful! Not only is the venue itself stunning but you get to have the whole site to yourself! That isn't very common and it is so amaIng and personal just to have your wedding party at such a beautiful venue. There is accommodation available to rent and a pub close by for guests to stay. The wedding planners (Melissa and Laura) are UNBELIEVABLE. They are not only the loveliest people that you will ever meet but they care so much, are amazing at planning and can't do enough for you! I really feel like we had such a close bond with them during our many build up visits, this made the day even more special because they effectively felt like part of our family. Melissa would reply to my crazy emails at any time and made me feel at ease the whole way through. No request was too much! We cannot thank Melissa and Laura enough for making our wedding the easiest thing to plan and the most enjoyable day of our lives. They are just superb! We bought into the package and had Vanilla All Seasons as our caterer, they worked so well with Sandon and the Estate Boys to give us everything that we wanted on our day. Our DJ was even included which made the planning so easy as Melissa and Laura just coordinated it all with them! Sandon Hall is the most amazing venue, the staff who work there deliver perfect weddings day after day but really do care deeply about each wedding. Highly recommended!

The best day EVER! Thank you!
Well, what can i say, we had the most perfect day EVER, the best day of our lives! Sandon Hall is the most picturesque wedding venue. When we first visited Sandon Hall we were absolutely blown away by the sight, it is simply stunning, each room just as grand as the last. We knew as soon as we stepped foot in the 'conservatory' that this was the one! The grounds are absolutely breathtaking - as is the drive up to the venue, and it is all exclusively yours for the day! The wedding planners were honestly the nicest, most helpful people! Melissa was our wedding planner and words cannot express how fabulous she was - from first meeting to the day itself, Melissa gave us her all, nothing was too much to ask- she really is an absolute angel. I cannot thank her enough for everything she did to ensure our day was as perfect as it could be - and it was exactly that - PERFECT! Melissa was there at the end of the phone/email each time we needed her - always reassuring and forever resolving any issues that occurred! We will forever be so grateful that we had Melissa looking after us throughout the wedding planning process and having her there on the day was so lovely it really put me at ease – she really is a huge asset to Sandon Hall! The catering company vanilla in all seasons were all amazing - the food was exceptional – all the guests commented on the incredible venue and amazing food and drink. The day itself was like a dream – I felt like a princess from a fairytale at Sandon Hall. And to top it off we stayed at the accommodation that is a short way down the drive from the Hall itself- which is just as stunning as the wedding venue and so elegant and stylish! I cannot explain how lucky we felt – getting married at the most beautiful venue, with the most incredible staff, food, drink, DJ and accommodation! It really was by far, the very best day of our lives, thank you Melissa and everyone at Sandon Hall for making our dreams come true!!!
