‪Wedding Venue‬
يوليو 2021
‪We were lucky enough to get married at Shortmead House in July this year and we wouldn't change anything about the venue at all. It really was perfect in every way. The grounds, cottage and bridal suite were all beautifully kept, clean and spacious. Throughout the lead up to our wedding Ian was a fantastic help, offering his ideas and suggestions and answering even the tiniest of questions very promptly. On the day, everybody working at Shortmead was great. In particular, Linda who worked as front of house, was brilliant. She made sure that the day ran smoothly without us having to worry about anything at all. We really were able to relax and enjoy our day without any stress. Our guests were really blown away by the venue and a few even said it felt like we could have been in the South of France sat around the pool in the sun. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Shortmead house to anyone considering it for their wedding.‬

‪What a beautiful, stunning day!
We can’t thank Ian and his Staff for the most perfect Wedding day! After postponing once and the stress this caused Ian was very helpful. So glad I found this place, all our guests loved the venue and couldn’t believe we were in Biggleswade.
We can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us. Emma and Vincenzo x‬

‪A magical day at Shortmead House‬
العائلة • يوليو 2021
‪We can’t thank enough the Shortmead House crew for making our wedding day so special and beautiful. Every single aspect of the venue was defined by an unbelievable amount of detail and was prepared beyond our expectations! All we needed was a few rays of the sunshine and luckily we had that too. Unforgettable and amazing place, warm, friendly and 100% professional staff, especially lovely owners who made us feel so special and unbelievably happy. Our families and friends will never forget this magical day! We couldn’t imagine better start of our life journey together.‬

‪My daughter and her husband held their wedding reception here after having their wedding cancelled in Italy twice due to COVID19. It was absolutely perfect from start to finish. I can not imagine any where could be more perfect than this venue. It was absolutely stunning and created the perfect setting. The hosts were great and managed to accommodate the wedding reception with 4 weeks notice.‬

‪Came here recently for a family wedding and Ian and his wife did a fantastic job in only the space of three weeks.
The house is beautiful with lovely grounds.
Ian the owner has a very witty dry sense of humour with a poker face to match.
The food was delicious and the staff great and attentive,
I honestly haven’t got a bad word to say about the place. It was such a perfect day and made better by great hosts.

Thank you for making my uncle and his new wife’s wedding perfect.‬

‪Superb wedding venue‬

‪Beautiful venue and superb organisation throughout the day by Ian and Marilyn.
Quaint 2 bed cottage on site with all mod cons to enjoy a good night's rest prior to the big day. Tasty food provided by caterers. Would thoroughly recommend.‬

‪Wedding 21/09/2019‬
زوجان • سبتمبر 2019
‪When we first started looking at wedding venues, we had no idea that Shortmead House was a stones throw away from our home. My Mum found it tucked away when she had stayed the night and walked her dog.

Shortmead was the first place we looked at and we pretty much knew from that moment that it was our venue.

Apart from the fact that it’s a stunning venue. The things that sold it for us initially was the fact that the venue is also the owners home so by default they would be invested in it so everything would be done to a high standard (this came across on meeting Ian), the fact that although you have to use a specific caterer you can chose whatever you like and it’s very reasonably priced and the fact that the bar prices were very good.

We largely spoke to Ian along the way and found the contact to be good and he always responded in a timely manner if we had queries.

We had a couple of meetings leading up to the day where we went through what we’d chosen. Ian gave guidance on what he felt worked and didn’t but was respectful of our choices (e.g Ian advised us to do speeches in the courtyard, but we chose to do this traditionally at the tables for photography purposes). I liked that he was honest regarding one of our drinks choices, we originally requested to have Pimms as part of the welcome drinks. Ian advised that this option doesn’t go down well heading towards the autumn and often has to waste a large amount of it so advised us to stick to prosecco so as not to waste our money. My husband isn’t a big drinker and still wanted Pimms so they did him his own welcome drink which was a nice touch.

Ian also advised not to have extra drinks for toasting as he advised us this is often wasted as well. A corporate venue may perhaps have seen this as an opportunity to make extra money, but we were grateful for the saving.

We had access to the venue from 5pm (be advised that decor etc is to be set up yourselves) and it took us about 3 hours to set up our decor (plus the groomsman a couple of hours on the day). They can lend you step ladders if needed. You’re left to get on with this, which was fine with us. You also meet the front of house for your day on the Friday, in our case the lovely Linda. In terms of decor, the venue really speaks for itself but it’s a blank canvas in terms of colour scheme/theme etc. We had a lovely sunny day, it felt like Italy!

We hired the cottage which myself and my bridesmaids and mum stayed in the night before and my bridesmaids and their partners stayed in on the night. It’s a lovely little cottage to get ready in and have photographs taken, only downside was it was difficult to watch catch up TV (we wanted to watch trashy wedding shows) as the internet connection wasn’t good enough. Ample parking is available. If you want to order takeaway (we got pizzas from Nonno Joes in town), it’s best to pick it up as it’s very difficult to find.

The day itself ran very smoothly, everything was taken care of. The food was wonderful and we were very happy with how our day went. Bare in mind when choosing your music that its electric drums only, our band could accommodate this so it wasn’t a problem.

We chose to stay in the bridal suite in the house which was really lovely and definitely nicer to waking up at home. If you have stayed in the cottage the night before, the front of house will want to take your luggage to the house around 11pm. Ensure that you are well prepared with your case packed and delegate someone to take care of this for you, we weren’t as organised about this as we would like to have been.

Ian made us a lovely breakfast in the morning and then we headed to the cottage to see our friends who had stayed on site and start the clean up. You must be out by midday, as long as you have enough people to help then this is ample time. We were done by 11am.

The only thing I would have done differently was the pool, if you want to have use of it then there is a charge. We decided to go for it as we thought it would be nice to use it on the Friday night and Sunday morning, however you’re only permitted to use it during the wedding itself. Although we should perhaps have sought confirmations of times of use, I feel it would be helpful for the venue to clarify this from the get go to help make the decision. For us ultimately it wasn’t worth the money as we didn’t get to use it.

Overall we had a wonderful day and are really glad we chose Shortmead for our wedding. We like that it’s so close that we can walk past it on the green wheel and have all the lovely memories flood back.

Thank you Shortmead for making our day so special! ‬

‪Perfect Autumn wedding‬
أكتوبر 2019
‪Perfect venue for an al fresco relaxed autumn wedding. We were very lucky with the weather but the marquee was warm and inviting. Gardens are lovely expecially at night when the lights twinkle and the pool is lit. The owners were very helpful and efficient giving us good ideas for the wedding. On the day they were present but un-intrusive, thank you‬
