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. We also have on-site accommodation with our 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 of our lives - thank you
From the moment we met the Sandon team - we knew that this was where we wanted to get married and who we wanted to run the day. The venue is just effortlessly classy and beautiful, which gives it a relaxed and warm feeling - it doesn’t have to try hard to be an incredible space. The team listened to what we wanted from the day and were flexible, accommodating and practical in addition to being personable and bubbly. There was never the phrase “that’s not how we do it”. We also hired the Agency which was perfect for an evening surrounded by friends and family before the big day. The day itself was seamless and ran amazingly. We cannot thank Sandon enough.

What a magical day!
The team at Sandon Hall are incredible! Highly organised, thoughtful and get to know their couples well and with this, make valuable and insightful suggestions. The lead up to the day was effortless and on the actual day, a well organised team that kept everything running like clockwork. The venue itself is steeped in history and is maintained to an exceptional standard. The best part of our day was having our dogs share it with us and once again, the flexibility of the team made this extra special for us. We cannot thank the team enough for all that they did! We only wish we could do it all again - maybe a renewal is on the cards?!

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

Perfection
We recently got married at Sandon Hall and had the most perfect day. Melissa was our wedding coordinator and she just seemed to get everything right, it’s as if she’d known us for years. The whole team on the day delivered above and beyond, in a way that allowed us to not think about a thing and just enjoy every moment. We will be eternally grateful for the Sandon Hall team and will never forget our special memories a truly special venue.

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.
