Set within the grounds of the Shaftesbury Estate, St Giles House is surrounded by acres of beautiful parkland, the River Allen and the famous Sunken Garden, a long beech avenue with the statue of Anteros taking centre stage.
The Estate is licensed to hold civil ceremonies for up to 120 guests in any of the 5 principal rooms or the outdoor parkland (register to be signed indoors). For a small, intimate gathering of up to 20 guests the intimate charm of the 18th century shell lined grotto is simply magical.
Enjoy your drinks reception in the sunken garden, dine in the main house surrounded by fireplaces and family portraits and dance the night away in the award-winning nightclub designed with state of the art light and systems and extensions available until 2am.
Exclusive use from 10am comes as standard at St Giles. No need to wait for the Wedding the day before to check out before your day begins, that is just not their style. The house, the accommodation, the club is exclusively yours on your special day.

St Giles House became the perfect countryside setting for our big day on 29th September 2018.
Having discovered the venue on Instagram, we fell in love with the rustic charm of the magnificent country house and picture perfect landscape gardens. We booked the last Saturday date available and couldn’t believe that this amazing place would host our wedding day.
After getting ready in the unique Pepper Pot lodges located at the gateway to the house, we were married by Rv’d Simpson in St Giles Church.
As the church bells chimed, we walked hand in hand our guests behind us, along the driveway to the venue. It looked more spectacular than ever, the September sunshine provided the perfect backdrop!
We chose Beales Gourmet as our caterers and were welcomed with a glass of champagne and canapés whilst the string quartet played in the shade of the house.
The team from St Giles couldn’t have been more welcoming, congratulating us and assisting guests throughout the afternoon. They even made a special effort with the grooms grandmother who was turning 102 the following week!
Seeing the library set for our wedding breakfast took my breath away. It was like something from a fairytale (I like to think of it as the library from Beauty and the Beast!) The sun was streaming through the huge sash windows - it was so beautiful.
The house and gardens offer a host of photo opportunities - from the copper swing the bridge by the lake, Cupid’s fountain, the steps and much much more. Every photo we have is different and that makes St Giles a very special place!
The party truly started down in the Bat Cave! We loved that our guests were totally surprised at this amazing nightclub space compared to the classic interior of the upper floors! Emanuel was a fabulous host - he went that extra mile!
St Giles House will always be magical to us and hold a special place in our hearts. It really was the perfect day.

St Giles House is the most perfect wedding venue. As soon as we drove down the drive and saw the stunning house, we knew we had found the right venue for us.
Racheal, met us and showed us around, every room a surprise, so fantastically restored and full of character. The landscape is equally as well considered and beautiful both in the winter and summer.
After many months of planning together with super helpful staff, the day soon was upon us.
We got married in St Giles Church which is a beautiful Georgian church which is a short distance to the house. Walking back after the ceremony with all our guests following was an incredible moment.
We were greeted back at the house by Beales Gourmet and St Giles House teams who looked after us and our guests all so well.
The house worked so well having different rooms to flow into through the day, ending in the basement nightclub was an amazing surprise for all our guests.
We stayed in the Ridding House with family and friends, using the Pepper Pots too. All so stylishly decorated and furnished.
We would whole heartedly recommend St Giles House.
Thank you to all the staff for making our day so special.
Also to the Earl and your family for saving such an amazing place and welcoming us.
