Good morning everyone! I hope your week is going well. I have so many things to share with you, my list of blog submissions for fabulous shoots and real weddings is growing and my editorial calendar for July is pretty full… with a little space for anything really special that comes along, so do get in touch if you have a feature for me! In the meantime, I’d love for you to join me today on a virtual trip around beautiful Sandon Hall.
I’ve been chatting on email to Sandon Hall’s resident flower expert, the lovely Breige. We share a love of English country garden flowers for weddings and I’m really looking forward to sharing more floral inspiration from Sandon Hall on the English Wedding Blog over the summer. Already a stunning wedding venue, Sandon Hall looks absolutely incredible when the rooms are filled with flowers, and for Staffordshire couples I don’t think there’s a better choice of wedding venue.
With the most elegant wood panelling and luxurious decor, Sandon Hall looks wonderful as soon as you step inside. Sandon Hall is very flexible in the rooms that you can use, with each able to perform more than one function:
- The Saloon – 115 for a Civil Ceremony; 115 for a Wedding Breakfast
- The Library – 90 for a Civil Ceremomy; 50 for a Wedding Breakfast
- The Old Dining Room – 50 for a Civil Ceremony; 60 for a Wedding Breakfast
- 175 guests can be accommodated in total for an Evening Party

Sandon Hall overlooks the Trent valley amidst 400 acres of rolling parkland. Built in the grand Neo-Jacobean style by William Burn it was completed in 1954 and features 50-acre formal gardens, completing this grand yet tranquil setting that is also the ancestral home of the Earls of Harrowby. With the historic restoration completed the beautiful interiors have achieved a sophisticated fusion of light spacious elegance and effortless grandeur. The main saloon offers the perfect backdrop for any event, especially a luxurious wedding.
