Full Description
You could think that these rooms were designed for this purpose, spacious, closely connected, with kitchens and other facilities close by. We provide tables, chairs and other items, with staff on hand to help you all the way. Civil ceremonies are conducted in the Saloon, on the first floor. This is reached by the Grand Staircase and can seat a hundred guests. There is also a lift. Receptions are held in the Great Hall, with the wedding breakfast in the Ballroom adjacent. We also set aside a private room for the bridal party, a games room where children can be entertained and a quiet room (the Library) for the older guests. We only have one wedding a week and so access can be granted from Friday morning ensuring that you have plenty of time to set everything up beforehand.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

One year a couple hired a fairground to go on the grounds. They had great fun on the carousel at midnight!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

It doesn't need to be stressful. We find a lot of couples can feel overwhelmed with all the decisions they have to make. We help advise on what works best at our venue whilst also ensuring that every wedding is completely individual.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

The mother of the bride was a member of the local WI group, they came on mass and did all the floral decorations in the hall as a surprise for the bride.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Exclusive, beautiful, grand, personal, unique

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Probably on the bridge over the lake with the house in the background . Although whats lovely about Staunton is that given the size of the rooms, even if the weather isnt great, there are so many options for good shots.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Not yet

What’s your favourite canapé?

You cant go wrong with mini beef yorkshire puddings!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Definitely brownies or smores.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The exclusive hire of all the main state rooms. So may places now have marquees and only let guests use a small part of the house. That isn't the case at Staunton. Also we are much more flexible with the whole site being available from friday morning.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Our staff , we are an experienced team who go to great lengths to make sure everything goes perfectly.
