Nestled in 8,500 acres of Shropshire countryside on the Apley Estate, Stockton House is an exclusive wedding venue like no other.

Stockton House – in a nutshell

  • Create your own bespoke wedding menu with award-winning chefs
  • Seven luxurious bedrooms for you and your guests

Built in 1702 as a Rectory to the church of St Chad’s just 100 yards down the lane, Stockton House has been a family home for over 300 years. Steeped in history with a stylish Georgian design, Stockton House will be brought back to life with seven luxurious double bedrooms and a 100-seater secret walled garden dining room all expertly designed to take in the breathtaking views and scenery of Shropshire. Our diary opens for weddings from April 2022.

Stockton will be fully licensed for indoor and outdoor civil ceremonies, with accommodation including seven luxurious bedrooms – each individually designed with their own unique features. Roll-top baths with garden views, beautiful dressing room and grand four-poster bed in the honeymoon suite. Stockton House will also have a newly built secret walled garden housing a 100-seater dining room with views of the gardens and enjoying the very best in food, drink and hospitality setting the standard for elegant, countryside weddings.

Your guests will enjoy being hosted in a unique place that has all of the charm and charisma of the 18th century, but with the technology, convenience and finishing touches of today. There’s something special about Stockton that will make it feel like you never want to leave, but you will create wonderful memories that last a lifetime.

Created by award-winning wedding caterers

This luxurious, boutique wedding venue is the exciting new project of award-winning wedding caterers Caviar & Chips. Co-founders Jonathan Carter-Morris and Marc Hornby started plans for Stockton House in 2018 when they saw a great opportunity to bring the experience their guests were having through their bespoke catering and weave that through their own unique wedding venue.

A secret walled garden dining room

It starts with a purpose built 100-seater secret walled garden dining room. This beautiful open space will be licensed for civil ceremonies and host the wedding breakfast and evening party. With state of the art technology in lighting, sound and heating and a blank canvas for your own styling – this will feel like your very own restaurant. The building will have beautiful flowers climbing its four and half meter high walls. Open the grand, double doors and then you are transported into a large open space with double curved ceiling, chandeliers and open windows to the gardens and grounds at the back of the house.

Create your own bespoke wedding menu

At Stockton House you get the chance to work with the team of chefs to create your own bespoke wedding menu. Executive Chef, Jonathan Carter-Morris, has crafted some wonderful dishes inspired by the produce and ingredients available on the estate as well as the abundance of fantastic food and drink Shropshire has to offer.
