For many years now we have been hosting weddings here at Chillington Hall and we take pride in the fact that we do all within our power to make such a momentous occasion an unforgettable day filled with magical memories.

From the outset, our professional events team are committed to making your wedding day one of complete happiness. We offer great flexibility and advice and are able to work with you, through your ideas and details, so you are free to enjoy yourself totally and without care.

Dreams  begin as you arrive at Chillington, driving through the gates at Giffard’s Cross, up the tree lined avenue, giving you and your guests a first glimpse of this enchanting Georgian House. We believe you’ll be enchanted by its unique charm and beauty.



Chillington lies on the beautiful and unspoilt borders of Staffordshire and Shropshire. Set in extensive parkland, landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown in the 1760’s, there are numerous locations for fabulous photos. The lake and it’s Follies give a romantic backing to any photograph.

Inside the Hall , the interior is all you would expect of a grand country house of the 18th Century. Guests will be able to enjoy drinks and canapés in the welcoming atmosphere.

You will have exclusive use of the house to include the Front and Marble Halls, the Drawing Room, and the spectacular Saloon designed by John Soane as the centrepiece of this family home. The Bride and Groom also have the use of the intimate Boudoir for a moment of peace.

The Grand Saloon is the heart of Chillington,  its soaring ceiling is topped by a great lantern from which hangs a magnificent chandelier and here we are able to hold civil Ceremonies for up to 130 people. The centrepiece of the room is the grand baronial fireplace and it is in front of this that the bride and groom exchange vows.

Once your reception in the house is concluded, you and your guests will make your way through the house and covered passage to our magnificent marquee, situated on the North Lawn with views across the estate. The marquee is heated with a fully fitted bar and separate chill-out area, superior cloakrooms, star-light ceiling and large dance floor. There is an outside decking area with tables and seating as well.

Food and drink are very important elements of a successful party and our bar and catering staff can guide you and tailor your choices appropriately. We have a wide choice of food options as well as an a la carte menu from which you can choose and our sommeliers have the ability though experience to suggest the right wines and beverages for your guests.

Once the formalities of the day are over it is time for you and your guests to let your hair down and party. From dusk the starlight ceiling will start to twinkle above you to get you in the dancing mood.

As the Giffard family have lived at Chillington since the 12th century, you could reasonably say they have a great deal of experience at entertaining, and hope that you, as others, will be caught up in the warmth and charm of the welcome here.
