They really do seem to have thoughtof everything. So time, now to hand you over to Georgina who runs Shooters to tell us more.
Tell us about your venue
Shooters Hill Hall – where ultra-modern luxury meets classic regency. Our stunning Georgian regency Hall was built in 1822 for a partner of Fortnum and Mason as a country retreat. As you make your way up the drive and through the gates, the impeccable white facade comes into view, really a breathtaking view.
We aim to accommodate the style-conscious bride, with a network of carefully cultivated supplier relationships ensuring that your entire Shooters experience is a luxurious one. We spend a.. LOT of time trawling instagram and making connections to keep us up to date with current wedding trends, colours and styles – all so we can help you with your perfect day!
Do you offer civil marriage and civil partnership ceremonies?
Yes we do! Everyone is welcome at Shooters Hall irrespective of gender and sexual orientation. Love is love people! We work with humanist celebrants and civil registrars to offer something for everyone.
We also are only a handful of miles from a selection of beautiful quaint local churches for those seeking a traditional ceremony.
Do couples & their wedding party have exclusive use of your venue?
When you book Shooters, you have the entire place to yourselves for 48 hours. Check in on the eve of your wedding, settle in and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and truly unwind.
Check out is at a leisurely 1pm the following day, so you can have a little lie in and gather yourselves casually. Don’t worry, Georgia will be discreetly onsite in the private cottage in the event that assistance is required.
Venue capacity – How many guests can attend the day ceremony, if applicable, wedding breakfast & the evening reception?
Shooters can host up to 125 for the daytime ceremony, or more if we have good weather! To attend your reception we say 150 guests is a comfortable number, but we can work up to 175 if we revert to banqueting style.
Evening guests we don’t often top 200. Our car park holds 60 cars when very well parked, so we would ask for larger weddings that there is a bit of car share!
Tell us just a little about any wedding packages you offer
We offer a Wednesday price and a Saturday price, which cover the same things at different rates. For more information on pricing, feel free to request a copy of our digital brochure.
Do you have in-house catering, or preferred suppliers or are couples free to choose their own caterers?
We work closely with our in-house caterers Comyn Bruce as they provide a forward thinking and original wedding breakfast. There are very few rules when it comes to designing the way you feed your guests, Comyn Bruce can accommodate it all. As the premier luxury caterers in Shropshire, you’re truly in safe hands.
Can couples supply their own alcohol for the evening? Is there a corkage fee?
Our in-house bar is operated by Tipples, providing a range of drinks packages and bespoke ideas to really personalise the experience. We allow couples to bring their own table wine, on the basis that Tipples serves it, and operates the bar for the rest of the evening.
Are couples completely free to choose their own wedding entertainment & do you have a specific sound system?
We have a list of exceptional entertainers to recommend to our brides and grooms, but the final decision lies with them!
Do you offer accommodation on site? If so, for how many guests?
The Hall can sleep 11 members of the bridal party over 5 tastefully furnished bedrooms. We can recommend local accommodation for non bridal-party guests who are travelling from afar.
Do you have an in-house wedding co-ordinator?
You bet we do! Our in-house wedding co-ordinators Hidden Weddings and Events are well regarded as some of the most on trend and organised women in the business. When you book at Shooters, Carly and Charlotte are included (I know!!) in the package price, as we are so impressed by what they do, we couldn’t possibly imagine a Shooters wedding without their skills.
How far in advance can couples or their wedding stylist, florist etc have access to the venue in order to decorate it?
The suppliers and couple have access to the marquee on the Thursday afternoon for weekend weddings, in order to begin styling and decorating. It is then theirs to use and return to its original state by 12pm on the Sunday.
Do you have gardens or an outdoor area for wedding photographs?
We have 10 acres of manicured grounds perfect for intimate shoots and group shots. There are always original shots to be had at Shooters.
What’s your best advice to couples when choosing their perfect wedding venue?
Go with your heart. This is the place where your life takes a big turn and you’ll always remember it as that. The venue is one thing you really shouldn’t scrimp on if you can afford not to, and it’s usually a good sign if the owner is a bit quirky and as excited about your wedding as you are!
You vibe off people as you go about your life, the same goes finding a venue, vibe it out.
And finally, what are your favourite moments from previous wedding you’ve been involved with?
My favourite moment is always when the evening has calmed down, everyone is half-cut and the ties have been loosened. The feeling of family, togetherness and warmth is palpable, that’s what a wedding is all about.
