Don't just take our word for it - here's some wonderful reviews by our happy couples from seasons past!

Absolutely stunning!

Everything from start to finish at Shuttleworth was seamless. Nothing was too much to ask (even doing photocopying for us when we had miscounted numbers for something going on the tables!) We felt at ease throughout the whole process and knew that everything would be taken care of. The venue is just stunning - all our guests commented how beautiful it is and was one of the best weddings they’d ever been to! We couldn’t have asked for a better day.

Charlotte & Joe

Fairy-tale wedding...

We were completely obsessed with Shuttleworth house and it’s grounds for a while before we decided to look into booking our wedding. We were lucky enough to have the weather on our side for our big day and held our ceremony outdoors at the Summer House. We recommend this venue if you are looking for professional staff, an amazing list of suppliers available at the wedding shows, the most stunning grounds to complete your wedding album and to make lasting beautiful memories you will never forget!

Rosie & Anand

Amazing wedding venue!

Shuttleworth was a brilliant venue for our wedding reception. They were so accommodating, helpful, and happy to help us in anyway that they could. They let us have multiple viewings, checked with suppliers for us and did an amazing job helping us to organise accommodation for our guests. Definitely would recommend!

Melissa & Chris

Incredible from start to finish!

From our first meeting with the team we were made to feel really welcome...the flexibility the venue offers for different rooms and settings played a huge part in our decision to choose Shuttleworth and the rooms, grounds and buildings are incredible. We went in to the day feeling calm and relaxed [and] day itself went without fault! The day was amazing and couldn't have been any better and we owe so much of this to the team at Shuttleworth for playing such a huge role in this!

Swiss Garden

Our nine-acre Swiss Garden was created in the 1820s by Lord Ongley. A late Regency style design which sets it apart from any other English country garden. With picturesque views and features, it is a wonderful venue for a ceremony in either of its two licensed venues – The Swiss Cottage sat in the centre of the garden with breath-taking views or for those looking for a magical yet intimate venue for up to 70 guests, The Grotto & Fernery is simply stunning and can have up to 20 guests standing.

If we could do it again, we wouldn't change a thing!

From the moment we walked around Shuttleworth House we knew it was the wedding venue for us. Not only was there plenty of stunning rooms and grounds to enjoy. On the day, everything flowed perfectly. The food, drink and atmosphere was perfect and we can’t thank the house and staff enough for all they did to give us our dream day.
