Shiplake College enjoys a riverside site of 45 acres with views over the Thames and surrounding countryside. Located just two miles upstream of Henley-on-Thames, Shiplake is the perfect venue for wedding ceremonies and receptions, formal dinners, parties, conferences and corporate meeting facilities.
The Church of St Peter and St Paul, Shiplake, where Alfred, Lord Tennyson was married in 1850, lies adjacent to Shiplake Court and is just 100 yards from the Great Hall. Couples wishing to be married in the Parish Church should contact the Reverend Paul Bradish on 0118 940 6098 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in holding a civil ceremony here at Shiplake, there are two options available. The Great Hall can accommodate up to 200 guests for the ceremony whilst the Old Library takes up to 60.
Marquees can be pitched on the riverside lawn adjacent to the terrace for guests who require either a larger capacity or an outdoor venue.
The Location and Events Manager, Steve Beaumont, will be happy to advise you on ensuring that your wedding reception is perfect, from devising a sumptuous menu to suggesting matching wines, and from room layout to finishing touches.
The experienced Wedding team will take care of every detail during the preparation process and of course on the special day itself. This will allow you to relax and enjoy every moment.
