Back to News

2018 is smashing all records at Grittleton House in Wiltshire. Our historic manor house is known as one of the ‘best kept secrets’ in The Cotswolds yet more and more bridal parties from far afield are planning their wedding at this stunning venue.

A wedding nowadays is no longer just about ‘The Big Day’! More than ever before, modern couples are opting for a two-day occasion where the guests and wedding party can enjoy time together - a mini-break for everyone!  A wedding should be individual, a day that reflects the couple’s personalities, full of family, friends, love and excitement all contributing to the perfect day.

We are looking forward to a very busy 2018, catering for a wide variety of wedding ceremonies, from simple humanist weddings to full-on two-day formal and fun wedding parties!  Our expert and specialised wedding planner is on-hand throughout. With menus designed by Michelin-trained Head Chef Andreas, whatever celebration you choose, you can rest assured that your guests will enjoy a delectable and immensely enjoyable meal.

Grittleton House is a family home, The Shipp family have lived on the estate for 50 years. Matthew Shipp says “Family is very important to us, five generations have had the pleasure of enjoying Grittleton House.  It's exciting times for the Grittleton team, with lots of new ideas, some redecoration and a great line-up of professionals, 2018 is set to be a very busy year for our full-time events venue. We have a record number of weddings booked and the diary is also full with exciting in-house events, birthday parties, balls, and taster evenings. Our Burns Evening in January was a real success, so much so that we are looking to re-run this in 2019. The Alfresco Cinema night on 8 June 2018 is already proving to be really popular and we are confident that the launch of our own in-house Gin Club will go down a storm.”

He continued, “People have always said that Grittleton House is one of the ‘best kept secrets’ in the Cotswolds, but word is quickly getting out! We are definitely noticing that more and more brides and grooms are coming from further afield. Several of our bridal parties come from London and the home counties and some even from overseas.”

Matthew added, “We love sharing our home, we want everyone to enjoy its uniqueness as much as we do.”
