Stanton Manor Hotel :-
Stanton Manor is a fabulous place to have your wedding. The hotel is a very easy venue for your guests to get to, yet set in beautiful grounds and Wiltshire countryside. Our banqueting rooms can hold up to 80 people but we would be happy to erect a marquee on our lawns to accommodate up to 200.
Our bridal suite and guest rooms have all been recently refurbished to a very high standard. We very much look forward to welcoming you to Stanton Manor, and to discuss the arrangements for your special day.
Stanton Manor's gardens have always provided a fabulous backdrop for weddings. The planting in 2004/05 has now substantially enhanced the venue's 6 acre gardens, incorporating a plethora of flowers, trees, shrubs, a dovecote and pond/fountain.
Why not arrive in style and touchdown on our very own helicopter landing pad!

Venue History: Stanton Manor is steeped in history. The original house was listed in the Domesday Book and was once owned by Elizabeth I's Lord High Treasurer and Chief Minister, Lord Burghley. It was rebuilt in 1840 and nowadays all that remains of the original manor is the dovecote, although the large stone fireplaces that adorn the present 19th-century building were salvaged from the original house.
WHY IT BECAME "BAD LUCK" FOR THE GROOM TO SEE BRIDE BEFORE THE CEREMONY
Until relatively recently, brides were considered the property of their father. Their futures and husbands were arranged without their consent. The marriage of an unattractive woman was often arranged with a prospective groom from another town without either of them having ever seen their prospective spouse. In more than one instance, when the groom saw his future wife, usually dressed in white, for the first time on the day of the wedding, he changed his mind and left the bride at the altar. To prevent this from happening, it became "bad luck" for the groom to see the bride on the day of the wedding prior to the ceremony.
