The perfect wedding venue
We had our wedding day at St. Giles House a little over a month ago, and everything was an absolute dream from start to finish. When we first enquired, the house was closed due to Covid lockdowns so we were unable to see it for a little while. Emmanuel was happy to help by showing us around virtually and was more than happy to hold our date for us until we'd had a chance to see the venue in person. It is even more stunning in person than you can imagine! Every single vist we had following, we loved the venue even more. From the beautiful accomodation to the stunning ceremony options - it was hard to choose which rooms to make the most of. The team at St. Giles are absolutely fab, we were never left waiting for a response to our queries and they were always incredibly helpful and ready to squash any concerns we might have. We had a six-week prior meeting with them to go through the plan for the day, and as we had the venue for 3 days, we even had the chance to sit down with St. Giles and our caterers the day before and go through every final detail. This was all coordinated by the team at St. Giles (and our caterers, Red Herring) and just shows how much they care about getting every element absolutely spot on. A special mention to Charlotte, Olivia and Robyn who helped coordinate on the day and made sure it ran flawlessly (one guest said it ran like a German train!). They made us feel like we were the only people in the world getting married that day, and we really can't fault them. You really won't be disappointed booking St. Giles House - it's the perfect wedding venue!

The best day of my life- Wedding of the century
We had an amazing wedding, the St Giles staff were incredibly helpful and helped take the stress off my shoulders. The venue itself is breath taking and worked perfectly for every need that day. Our guests were blown away and have expressed how it was the best wedding they have ever been to.

You are all stars!
Just a short note to say a massive thank you from me and Jonny for this weekend. Not only was the venue even more perfect and beautiful than we remembered, but more importantly the organisation and support from your team was more than we could have hoped for! You allowed us to have a totally relaxed, seamless and perfect wedding. So many people have commented to me that the staff and organisation were so friendly relaxed and that the whole thing was seamless, and that is all thanks to you. You really allowed us to relax and enjoy our wedding, and we had the absolute best weekend.

We had the most amazing day at St Giles House. Everyone was so kind and attentive. From the day before to the day after our wedding everything was perfect. Thought out the day, the team at SGH were incredible! We could not have asked for a better venue or a better team. We would recommend St Giles House to every couple, they made sure our day was special.

St. Giles were incredible from start to finish. The team there was responsive, helpful, friendly, and treated our wedding as just as important to them as it was to us. I couldn't fault them and could not recommend them enough. We had an utterly fantastic day that exceeded ALL expectations and are so thankful to St. Giles for turning all of our hopes and wishes into utter magic.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
