“Compton Verney is stunning venue inside and out. The grounds provide you with that fairytale setting, the Chapel is just something so special to get married in, and the art galleries give your reception that something different!”
“We got married at Compton Verney Art Gallery earlier this year. We had so many compliments about the venue and how helpful the staff were. Our coordinator, Olivia, was incredibly helpful, going over and above to help us plan the day how we imagined it. And we were given a years pass to the gallery and grounds too, which means we can go back and visit!”
“A dream wedding venue, and fantastic events team that made it all a reality. Would highly recommend as a wedding venue hire if you want something that will add that extra magic to your wedding day for you and your guests. Also wonderful to be able to visit your wedding venue and relive wonderful memories with it being a public tourist attraction.”
