Style file: An extraordinary estate…

With rolling parkland vistas and steeped in compelling history, the Shuttleworth Estate – a 5,000-acre estate in the heart of Bedfordshire – offers an extraordinary setting for weddings all year round.

The house and parkland offer an unrivalled wedding experience and the Jacobean-style country house has an array of grand and finely furnished rooms. Additionally, the Summer House, set within a sunken garden, makes for a charming, idyllic outdoor ceremony venue. The acres of parkland offer an ideal setting if you wish to erect a marquee or tipi.
