at Lovelady Shield Country House Hotel

We are proud to host Weddings at Lovelady Shield Country House Hotel.

So proud that Marie’s own daughter was married here in 2014 and these are photographs from Katie and Emeka’s wedding.

If you are planning a small intimate wedding, the team at Lovelady will ensure your day will be one of the most important and memorable days of your life.

Lovelady Shield provides a superb venue for your wedding. We are a lovely Georgian House set in beautiful countryside on the banks of the River Nent which provides an enviable setting for your wedding photographs as shown here. (Photos courtesy of Helen Whitaker Scotby –

The ceremony can be held in either our Drawing Room (maximum of 40 guests) or weather permitting, outside in the Gazebo.

Equally we can serve your wedding breakfast either in the Restaurant for up to 40 guests or in a marquee in our gardens for larger parties (at an additional cost)

We can provide accommodation for up to 24 guests in the hotel or, alternatively, up to 40 guests by taking advantage of our cottages in the hotel grounds. For the Bride and Groom there is a beautiful four-poster.

Should you wish to invite more guests to stay we can arrange terms with hotels and other types of accommodation providers within easy travelling distance.

You will find it refreshing at Lovelady Shield that we have no wedding packages. You will have exclusive use of the hotel on your special day.

We can give you detailed advice on menus, flowers, photographers and entertainment and then tailor-make your day to suit your requirements.

In other words we understand that your Wedding Day is a very important occasion and that you, and not the venue, should make all the decisions about it.

Please telephone us to discuss your special day or book an overnight stay to experience Lovelady yourself – the cost of your stay will be deducted from a subsequent wedding booking.
