shortmead venues


Shortmead provides a wide range of opportunities to make your wedding day special all year round, offering a choice of location for both your ceremony and reception.

In the summer, use of the gardens and grounds provide the perfect location for a larger celebration, whether formal or informal. In winter the house and stables provide wonderful settings for an intimate occasion, and of course you will have exclusive use of Shortmead venues for your event.

The Thatch

In the gardens, by the pool, the Thatch is an ideal, less formal setting for a summer wedding. Equally, it has been used in the winter months with a reception afterwards in the Stables.

The Stables and courtyard

Approached through a walled courtyard, the Stables are suitable either for your ceremony or reception.

The marquees

The formal garden makes the perfect setting for our marquees, which give a lovely ambience for a larger, formal reception and for evening receptions.

The Regency room

Richly-decorated and with a warm ambience, this room is a wonderful setting for a smaller wedding group.

The Drawing room

Elegant surroundings whilst you prepare for your big day.

The bridal suite

The perfect escape from your guests whilst you get ready, but with an ideal view over the main function area to see what your guests are up to and once your fantastic day has come to a close the suite is the perfect place to start your honeymoon.
