Soulton Hall, Shrewsbury

Soulton HallThe family-run Soulton Hall, in the rolling Shropshire countryside, has a long history that stretches back to the Bronze Age. This is a working farm, as well as a delightful wedding venue, and its current owners show incredible attention to detail, taking on a smaller number of bookings than other venues, and working hard to adapt the hall’s multiplicity of features to the demands of their bride and groom’s special day.

Wedding violinist Simon Jordan played at this venue, with a pianist. Simon and the pianist played outside for a beautiful ceremony in the gardens, and then inside for the reception and wedding breakfast. The bride and groom chose this mix of music:
