"Thank you so much for making our wedding day at Shillingstone such a fabulous experience. Shillingstone is a beautiful house, we, along with all our guests, remarked how special you made the venue and gardens for us. Fantastic place to get married."
Ros and Ben January 2019

"We fell in love instantly"

"Lady Caroline and Sir Michael Salt are just wonderful people and so genuine, they really do want the best for you and your day and will ensure you have everything you need, they are able to give great advice about suppliers and the local area. They went above and beyond to help me set up, including helping me do flowers at 10pm and again at 8am!! I couldn't thank them enough for their help!!! They were even rummaging around finding me all sorts of flower containers from the house!!

"What we loved was that we could do whatever we wanted, it was a total blank canvas"

Rebecca Johnson 2019

"5 stars isn't enough for this beautiful setting. Sir Michael and Lady Caroline Salt made our wedding set up so easy and relaxed. They went above and beyond for us and are such lovely people. We celebrated our wedding on Saturday 18.08.18 and everything went so smoothly and exactly as we had wanted. The house and grounds are absolutely stunning and with the extra option of camping for our guests, it just made it so much more relaxing. Thank you so much for allowing us to share your beautiful home on our wedding day" xxx

Michelle and Hannah 2018

"This was the first and last wedding we visited - what a treasure! The quintessential country house, stunning flower filled gardens, backdrop of unspoiled countryside and warm and generous owners made this a perfect choice for our informal county fete themed wedding.

Grace and Alex 2016
