A wedding is the most magical of days – creating happy memories that will last a lifetime. With this in mind, it is every couples dream to create the perfect day, from the ceremony to the celebrations after.

Based in a 17th century coaching inn, the picturesque Gaskell Arms is a uniquely placed wedding reception venue in Shropshire – with delicious food, drink and lots of picture perfect locations such as the Wenlock Edge and Wenlock Priory to provide photo backdrops on the big day.

You only have your wedding day once, so we understand how important it is that your special day goes to plan, and this is where our 30 years of experience is so important.

We can create bespoke packages according to your individual wishes and number of guests (we can cater for up to 60). This includes creating the ultimate wedding breakfast; sit down or buffet – the choice is yours. It will be prepared by our in house chef on the day and our team can provide guidance on the drinks to complement your dining choices.

Our walled garden is a unique location for those everlasting celebration photos, with space to fit everyone in to the essential group shots. As the seasons change, the garden comes to life in a different way, so no matter what time of year your wedding is, this picturesque location will impress.

As the celebrations carry on, some guests may wish to stay the night – our luxury hotel accommodation is available with 14 rooms available with single, doubles and family options available.

The local church is the Much Wenlock Parish Church nearby, but there are many picturesque churches in the county, which you may want to visit.

The local registry office is at the Wellington Civic and Leisure Centre, a 20-minute drive from The Gaskell Arms.

If you are looking for a wedding reception venue in Shropshire to celebrate your special day, please come and visit the Gaskell Arms, we know you will be charmed the minute you walk through the door, and our expert team will help you every step of the way.
