Ingestre Hall is a Grade II listed building, located in the village of Ingestre, near Stafford. Mentioned in the Domesday Book, Ingestre Hall was built in 1613 by Sir Walter Chetwynd on the site of an earlier manor house. The hall was altered by regency architect John Nash circa 1810 and largely rebuilt following a devastating fire in 1882 and is now in the care of Sandwell MBC.
Set in 27 acres of Staffordshire countryside this former home of the Earl of Shrewsbury is an imposing example of a Jacobean Mansion House. The South Front has large two storey bays and an impressive Jacobean porch. The interior is mostly Victorian. This truly magnificent setting is the ideal location for your civil marriage or partnership ceremony followed by your wedding breakfast and evening reception. Should you prefer the option of a Church wedding, St Mary the Virgin Church at Ingestre is just a short distance away.
The Great Hall, with its oak floor and paneled walls, is overlooked by the Minstrels Gallery, which is perfect for a string quartet. As the bride and groom make their grand entrance down the magnificent staircase the Great Hall provides the ideal location for the Wedding Breakfast, seating up to 100 guests. For your evening reception, a maximum of 150 guests can be accommodated in the hall with dancing taking place in the Grand Hall.
The Victorian Yellow Drawing Room is licensed for civil ceremonies and seats up to 50 guests. The large bay window floods the room with light and offers views to the front of the house, and the grand Victorian fireplace provides an impressive backdrop for formal photographs following the ceremony. The Steinway piano is also available for hire.
The Red Room, provides breathtaking views over the Capability Brown landscaped parkland which surrounds the hall. In Winter months, or in the event of wet weather, the Red Room is an ideal choice for your reception drinks, and is also popular as a bar area during your reception.
