The Medieval Vaughan’s mansion at Shrewsbury Museum offers a classic venue for weddings in the heart of the beautiful county of Shropshire.

Couples looking for a unique and special setting for their wedding can now get married in a 13th century mansion house within Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery.

Wedding ceremonies and civil partnerships can be held in Vaughan’s Mansion, which dates back to the 1290s and is recognised as the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the Museum & Art Gallery complex. A rare surviving example of an early medieval first-floor hall, Vaughan’s Mansion is the only one of its kind in the region and it is a building of national importance.

Vaughan’s Mansion has a maximum capacity of 50 people.
