Shillingstone House Weddings

Shillingstone House


Shillingstone House is the family home of Sir Michael and Lady Salt and is the perfect venue for an exclusive Country House Wedding. Set in a secluded position and surrounded by the rolling hills of Dorset, the beautiful garden and grounds are yours for the 4 days of your wedding. A day for the marquee to go up, a day for decorating, a day for your ceremony and party and a day for brunch or barbeque with friends who have travelled far. The fourth day the marquee goes down.

The gazebo in the garden is fully licensed for Civil Ceremonies so you can get married outside. Your marquee can come right up to Gazebo so whatever the weather your celebration will go ahead.

Space to glamp/camp on Friday and Saturday night is available and a fully furnished bell tent can be hired if the bride and groom wish to spend their wedding night in the walled kitchen garden.

We only hold 6 weddings a year and like each one to be individual. You choose your own suppliers from Marquee company to catering service but we can give you advice if you wish. We do not charge corkage. You can decorate the marquee/gazebo/grounds etc. as you choose and we like to feel that Shillingstone becomes your home for the 4 days of your wedding.

If you look at the blog on our website – – you will find pictures of our past weddings with links to their suppliers. You can see that we have held every type of wedding here with catering from hog roast and fish and chips to full sit down dinner – everything is possible!

You can let off fireworks if you wish and bring your favourite pet but we need to know in advance so as to make arrangements for livestock.
