Wedding Venue Newbury: Real Autumnal Wedding of Jo & Mark

Shaw House wedding venue in Newbury detail below the real wedding of Jo & Mark in October of this year.

An Autumn Wedding in Newbury Wedding Venue

From when we first met Jo & Mark back in early 2019 we knew their wedding would be special. They wanted an Autumnal wedding with a relaxed, outdoors and informal feel. There were conversations around the time of year it would be when the wedding took place and just how much outdoors there could be, given the fact that the wedding would take place at the beginning of October. However there’s never any guarantee with the weather on a wedding in any month. With contingency ‘rainy day’ plans in place the outdoors elements were booked.

Intimate Wedding Ceremony at Shaw House Newbury

They chose to have an intimate ceremony with close friends and family and then have the majority of their guests arrive shortly after for welcome drinks and photographs. A Gin Bar was laid on and the BBQ fired up for the evening meal. There was no formal seating plan, instead guests were free to mingle and sit in the hall, outside or inside the Chandos Bar.

Celebration with Family & Friends

Jo & Mark seemed to hit the balance just right. There was enough tradition in the day that it was an elegant wedding in splendid surroundings. However with their informal approach you could see how relaxed both they, and their guests were. It was pleasure to be part of their special wedding celebrations with family and friends. And it didn’t rain!

Testimonial from the couple

Following the wedding we received the following review from Jo & Mark:

“In October 2019, we held our wedding at Shaw House. We had the most wonderful day and we couldn’t have asked for a better service from Lisa and her team. From the first day of planning until our big day, Lisa was in regular contact and made us feel confident and relaxed that she had it all in hand. Lisa added some little extra touches to our day that made it so much more special and could be seen with a big smile, helping our guests and ensuring the day ran smoothly from beginning until end.

Shaw House is an incredible building and we feel honoured to now be part of its history. It certainly made for some beautiful photos! We have had lots of positive feedback from our guests about the day and no complaints at all, which is testament to the whole wedding team at Shaw House.

We will be recommending Shaw House as a wedding venue to everyone. How lucky we were to find such a wonderful and special place to get married! “
