Shropshire Council

Celebrating in Shropshire - our guide

Welcome to our beautiful county.

We're thrilled that you've chosen Shropshire as the place to celebrate your special day. Shropshire is recognised as an incredibly beautiful county, the largest inland county in England, no less. 

The county is steeped in a rich and fascinating history, playing its parts in the ‘Wars of the Roses’, and has been fought over in the north by the Welsh and English. Our county has hosted the English parliament, and is rich in heritage left by the Romans, not to mention its association with the modern Olympic Games. Some even believe that the court of Camelot was in Shropshire.

We're pleased to be able to offer a wide choice of attractive venues in beautiful locations for ceremonies. Shropshire is home to some stunning scenery, set on a backcloth of patchwork fields, wooded valleys, picturesque rivers and rolling hills leading into the Welsh mountains. We're sure that you'll find the perfect place to celebrate your special day in Shropshire. 

Whatever you envisage, a simple, intimate affair or a splendid gala occasion, we want to ensure that your special day is all that you want it to be. We want your celebration to run smoothly and successfully and leave you with memories to treasure.

We hope our guide, "Your ceremony in Shropshire - celebratory service guide", attached to this page, will answer all your questions but if you have any others, we'll be pleased to answer them.

We look forward to sharing with you the joy and happiness on your special day.
