The Venue


An exclusive and sophisticated marquee wedding venue set against the backdrop of this romantic country house, its extensive gardens and the stunning natural beauty of the Shropshire countryside.

The wedding lawn at The Citadel is available for a small number of bespoke wedding receptions each year, partly in order to retain the private feel of this much loved family home but also to allow each wedding reception to feel special and exclusive.

Each reception is unique because we offer flexibility on the position of the marquee on the wedding lawn, the decoration of the marquee and all of the suppliers you choose, including the caterers, the bar, photographers, florists, and entertainment. In addition, the venue is completely private so there is no pressure of time or any danger of stumbling across another happy couple on what should be a day which is exclusively yours.

The marquee stands on a dedicated wedding lawn to the west of The Citadel and boasts panoramic views of one of the few Grade 1 listed landscapes in the country. Guests can also enjoy wandering through the mature three acre garden with its various lawns, summer house with views to the Welsh hills and beautiful central acer glade all of which offer fantastic photographic opportunities for the bridal party.    

Overnight accommodation in the main house is available for the bridal party if required.

The Citadel is licenced for the sale of alcohol per event, and music and dancing are permitted until 12.30am. The wedding lawn is very spacious and can comfortably accommodate large receptions. At the same time it has played host to many wonderful, smaller, more intimate celebrations.
