We had a small intimate wedding at Talbooth House and Spa and it was just perfect. From the events team leading up to the big day and then on the day itself, the staff could not do enough for us. Nothing is too bigger job for them and they made the day so special. We had exclusive use of the house and it was such a wonderful day and night finishing off with breakfast in the morning before our guests checked out. The food and service was fabulous (our guests loved the beef wellington!).

A picturesque location with very high standards....
Talbooth House & Spa is the most incredible venue to hold intimate Weddings. To have your nearest and dearest with you from start to finish, staying in what is the most beautiful house with full spa facilities (including a heated outdoor pool) is just a dream! The only thing I can think of that tops all the above is the catering – being a Milsom venue, you benefit from having them as the exclusive caterers. Believe me when I say – you won’t need to look anywhere else. It doesn’t stop with the facilities and food either. You know you’re in a Milsom establishment from the moment you enter, simply by the way you’re greeted and then looked after. The staff at Talbooth House & Spa are professional, friendly and trained to a very high standard in hospitality (and it shows). Talbooth House & Spa is located in the heart of the countryside with a stunning view across Dedham. This creates the most magical backdrop for your photographer/videographer in capturing those memories that will last a lifetime. The house, grounds and pool house are all picturesque locations and I highly recommend taking a look for yourself before you commit to any other venue.
