thank you, thank you, thank you
Hello, It’s Luke and Emma here from the Saturday 5th October wedding. We just wanted to write you all a message to say a massive thank you for all the help and support towards our wedding and on the actual day. Can I do a big thank you to Lucy for decorating the place, it looked incredible!! We were over the moon and it was so magical. Another big thank you also to Jo, Tara, Dave and Hollie, all their help in the smooth running and communication for the day, it went so perfectly! Also to everyone behind the scenes and on the day thank you, thank you, thank you. The day was absolutely perfect and the weather held out, we have some beautiful pictures to cherish! We can’t believe it is all over and done, wedding blues have kicked in. Honeymoon time is coming now though. Thank you again, everyone was so complimentary about the venue and the day, you all do an incredible job. Warm wishes, The newlyweds Mr and Mrs Atkins 🙂

"...you delivered everything we wished for"
Dear Hollie, Jo, Tara, David and all colleagues involved in the Howell-Hutton wedding last Saturday! Thank you so much for all your hard work and energy expended on our behalf! The event passed off seamlessly from reception and canapés through wedding breakfast to the last dance and departures. The organisation was quiet and efficient, the food simply delicious (thank you so much to Chef and her staff – just great!) and the venue magical – rendered even cosier by the worsening weather outside! Thank you to everyone who had a hand in making this such a memorable day for our joint families and friends: the administrative and events teams who carefully planned so many elements beforehand and all the staff on the 28th both behind the scenes and front of house. Please know how appreciative we are. We placed this unique event in your hands and you delivered everything we wished for. Sincerely, Geraldine and Adrian

Dear Hollie, Jo and all the team at Shilstone, Thank you so much for all your help in making our incredible day so perfect. It was everything we could have wished for and more! Nothing was too much trouble both before and on the day. Hollie and Jo, your planning and organisation along with all your help and advice were amazing, and Tara along with Dave on the day were brilliant and meant everything ran smoothly. Thank you!

" I cannot fault them in any way"
We had our wedding this September at Shilstone and I cannot fault them in any way, from their amazing staff communication leading up to the day including meeting the owner (who was not pushy or overbearing at all compared to other places we viewed) to the actual day when they ensured everything went perfectly. The canapes and food were beyond exceptional and our guests still rave about it now. Special mention to Hollie for all the pre-wedding organisation, Jo for the day before and the morning of and to Tara who was brilliant throughout the day and evening always checking in with us to make sure everything was ok and generally being fab. Big thank you to all the staff on the day who were fabulous and a real credit to the place, my guests all commented on how fabulous and attentive everyone was including my aunt in a wheelchair who was especially looked after. Thank you so much to team Shilstone for making our day absolutely epic! With Love The New Mrs Mackelden!

We both fell in love with Shilstone
We had our wedding at Shilstone back in August and we cannot thank the entire team enough. From the first meeting to the big day they couldn’t do enough for us. We both fell in love with Shilstone within 10 minutes of arriving back in January 2018 on our first visit and we just knew it was where we wanted to celebrate our marriage. Hollie and the team leading up to the day were always on hand to answer questions and help me when I was having a moment. They also kept our secret entertainment from everyone including my husband. On the big day itself, things didn’t go to plan with my wedding car but everyone at Shilstone made sure the rest of the day ran like clockwork. Tara was there waiting for us and helped (me especially) calm down and was so reassuring. The staff were fantastic in every aspect of the day. Everyone from the second we arrived even till now still comments on the day and how beautiful the venue was. We would both highly recommend Shilstone House to anyone because for us it was everything we dreamt of. Special thanks to Sebastian, Hollie, Tara, Dave and Jo you made our day a day we will never forget. We hope we can one day return. From Mr and Mrs Preece x

Thank you Shilstone, we had a wonderful day.
We got married on 24th August and what an amazing day we had. Shilstone is an absolutely beautiful venue, from the ceremony to canapés and the wedding breakfast the setting was just perfect. Hollie was the best, I’d always receive a response within 24 hours and she was extremely helpful. I can’t fault the staff on the day either, everything went seamlessly and a special mention to Tara who really stood out on the day with her organisation. Thank you Shilstone, we had a wonderful day.
