Walcot Hall is a Georgian country house steeped in history. The historic building alone makes for one of the most unusual wedding venues in Shropshire, however Walcot Hall is also a family home. Its business is not exclusively weddings, however it is no surprise that it ranks as one of Shropshire’s top wedding reception venues. The Hall may be a grand historic house but it’s certainly not imposing. We guarantee you will love the eclectic furnishings and rustic romance of the rambling estate, and the masses of curiosities will certainly get your guests talking…
We know that your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life which is why we work hard to make your time at Walcot Hall memorable, magical and above all, unique. We work alongside you through the wedding planning process and offer a friendly and relaxed approach. We want you to have the best day possible so will endeavour to turn your wedding ideas (and Pinterest boards) into reality!
We know we’re not a 5* hotel, which is why we don’t try to be! But we can promise a stay full of fun, character, surprise and intrigue for you and all of your guests. Having the majority of your wedding party with you for the whole weekend (we can accommodate up to 100 guests onsite in our holiday cottages and glamping accommodation) means you can utilise the space the estate has to offer and make the most of your time at one of Shropshire’s finest wedding venues.
The Possibilities Are Endless…
Picture a weekend with your nearest and dearest. Your guests arrive on the evening before the wedding, check in to their holiday accommodation before all gathering for welcome drinks / a BBQ within the Walcot Hall grounds to kick off the wedding celebrations.
On the morning of the wedding while the bride is busy being pampered in the Bridal Suite, guests can explore the extensive grounds and cook up a breakfast in their accommodation before leisurely getting ready and making the short journey to the designated ceremony area (be that the Main Hall at Walcot, within the beautiful private gardens or into Lydbury North to the local church). After the ceremony comes the drinks reception; Pimms, Prosecco, Peroni…you choose. These can be enjoyed along with canapés in one of the fantastic landscaped garden areas where we also have table tennis and croquet. The drinks reception is a great time for guests to mingle, photographs to be taken and for everyone to really relax into the day’s festivities before being called to dinner.
Enter the beautiful turquoise Ballroom where guests settle for the wedding breakfast. Couples are welcome to choose any caterer they like; be it a traditional 3 x course meal, a BBQ, an Indian banquet or Afternoon High Tea – we’ve seen them all. After your guests are sufficiently fed and the speeches have come to an end, we invite everyone to stretch their legs and refresh with a drink in the Anteroom and gardens while we turn the Ballroom over for the evening reception and let the party commence…
