After a wedding venue of your dreams? Look no further!

Muddy has a good snoop around Grittleton House, one of our favourite country house wedding venues in the Cotswolds

‘Flexibility is key, we are always thrilled when our couples come up with new ideas we haven’t thought of before’

Stunning grounds and house, delicious food, immaculate staff…we promise you won’t be disappointed if you throw your Big Bash here! This January (the month of wedding planning, y’know) we at Muddy were lucky enough to be invited to look around the gorgeous Grittleton House near Chippenham, with its gothic features, decorative ceilings, balconies to die for and elegance worthy of any palace. And it’s got a massive thumbs up from us!

Truly a venue fit for a princess, Grittleton House is the perfect heavenly wedding setting. This beautiful family-owned Victorian mansion with its impressive double gates and tree lined drive, oozes style and charm both inside and out. As you enter, you will be mesmerised by the magnificent architectural features, fabulous ornate and high ceilings, original working fireplaces and the most stunning double staircase. Outside there are 37 acres of parkland and formal gardens, most notable are the handsome Italian sunken gardens. Add in the beautiful orangery and the new and very elegant master bedrooms, and you will not be disappointed.

What more could you possibly ask for…How about exquisite food, prepared in house by Michelin trained chefs, a fantastic event manager a superbly organised wedding coordinator and exceptionally friendly and helpful staff? The Shipp family are passionate about their beautiful Grittleton House and they love sharing it with all of their special couples.

‘We are privileged to be able to live in such a gorgeous place, and there is nothing nicer that filling the House with love and laughter’, says Vanessa Shipp. ‘Weddings are so personal and should definitely reflect the couples personalities. This is the moment many have dreamt about for years!’ Grittleton House offers ultimate flexibility with a choice of ceremony rooms, dining rooms and party rooms, you really can make your day your own. Their chefs are not only incredibly talented but also very accommodating, they love nothing more than to showcase the couples own ideas.

At Grittleton House they have more than 30 years of experience organising weddings and by God do they know what it takes to host the perfect event.
