Simply Splendid Venue: Donnington Grove

 What is venues name? 
                          Donnington Grove Country Club                                   
  How and why the company begin?        
Donnington Grove was built in 1763 and remained a family home up until 1990.  Parasampia purchased the 550 acre estate and built the golf course, it changed ownership in 2005 and many recent developments improved the accommodation and suites at the hotel to retain its original charm and character as we see it today
Why do brides come to your venue?    
We have a unique location and venue, there are not many 18th century manor houses in 500 acres left now! The team at Donnington Grove offer a flexible approach to accommodate all requests

  What is your favourite wedding theme?
Winter wonderland weddings in the winter! They create a really atmospheric ambiance and take you back in time.

What do your bride and grooms love about your venue?
Our honeymoon suite occupies almost the entire first floor of the manor house, there are three beautiful chandeliers and high ceilings  in there too with ornate plasterwork. It also has amazing views!

Why do you love what you do?
Knowing that we are creating memories and setting a couple on their path to happiness for the rest of their lives together.
What is in store for you in 2015?
We have just had our first 3* AA accreditation so next year – definitely 4*, it was a very close score this time.

What would be your top tips for brides when searching for a venue?
Stick to your dreams and plans, its your big day – if there is something you really want to include insist it happens and find a venue flexible enough to work with you on it!
 Tell us something super interesting about you or your business that we wouldn’t already know…?
 William Brummell – (Beau Brummell in 1778-1840) lived at Donnington Grove, not only was he credited with being a friend of the Prince Regent, the future King George IV iand establishing as fashion, the modern men's suit, worn with a necktie. He also claimed he took five hours a day to dress, and recommended that boots be polished with champagne. We prefer to drink it at Donnington – there will always be plenty for your big day!
