The most PERFECT setting
Thank you so much for providing the most PERFECT setting for our wedding. From the moment we stepped through those gates and walked through to the Tipis we fell in love and nothing else compared. The whole team provided us with exceptional service and care from start to finish. We felt at complete ease through the whole process. I'm sure we will be visiting the grounds again to relive the most perfect day.

The most incredible day!
Thank you so much! We had the most incredible day. The venue was perfect and the torrential rain actually added to its cosiness. Everyone we spoke to said how unique and beautiful the tipi was. Alex from Shake the Spirit was absolutely wicked and such a great guy who looked after us all night with a fab sense of humour. It was everything we could have dreamed of and we even got 20 minutes of pics outside when the rain stopped!

Such an amazing day!
Sian and myself want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding possible and for providing the opportunity to use such an incredible space as our wedding venue. It was such an amazing day for us from beginning to end and we can’t thank you enough. Our guest were truly blown away by the beauty of the venue and we just want to relive the whole day over again. We can’t wait to visit the gardens again soon and relive some very special moments.

The best day!
Whatton House and Gardens was the only wedding venue I looked at. I knew after seeing it once that I couldn’t get married anywhere else. It is absolutely stunning, with little décor needed due to its natural and rustic feel. It is the perfect relaxed atmosphere. The team was so helpful and made sure the day ran perfectly. We truly had the best day, and I would recommend this venue to anyone.
