Shuttleworth is one of Bedfordshire’s best kept secrets. The venue offers three breath taking settings for your wedding: A magnificent house with period rooms, a romantic picturesque Swiss Garden and an aircraft hangar with a backdrop of vintage aircraft and Edwardian vehicles.
The House was built by Joseph Shuttleworth in 1872 and commissioned Henry Clutton to design the building. Its Jacobean style and the 100 foot high clock tower have defined The House for over a century. The house is situated in 425 acres of beautiful parkland providing stunning photographic opportunities.
The House has 15 bedrooms that can accommodate you and your guests. Located in a separate wing adjacent to the main house, the rooms are well equipped and breakfast can also be arranged for the following day.
Shuttleworth’s Hangar 3, located in the aerodrome, transforms to an attractive location for wedding receptions. The space is flexible to accommodate up to 100 guests, with room for a dance area and licensed bar.
The nine-acre Swiss Garden includes floral arches spanning lawns, serpentine paths, ponds with wrought iron bridges leading to a series of islands, an impressive Grotto & Fernery and the charming Swiss Cottage, both of which are licensed for wedding ceremonies.
Several of our guests have said that they didn't know that The House was even there and how stunning it is. They also commented on how lovely and helpful all of the staff were. They went above and beyond to ensure us and everyone else had a wonderful day and even the next morning, the breakfast was superb.
The little added touches like the emergency kit in the retreat room and the umbrellas we used for our photos in rain made such a huge difference to what could have been a stressful day. I felt very relaxed and stressfree and that was down to the organisation that you and everyone else put in.
If there is anything we can do to help you in future with promoting the House please do not hesitate to let us know. We would love to be able to visit again in the future.
Thank you again to you and everyone else involved.”
