The Venue at Gayton

An Outdoor Wedding Venue in Staffordshire

The Venue at Gayton is an outdoor wedding venue in Staffordshire. Not far from the A51 however a quiet oasis in the middle of the beautiful countryside. We are located approximately half way between Stafford and Uttoxeter.

With three lakes and far reaching views, the venue will take your guests’ breath away. Our blank canvas also means that you can have the day you really dreamed about. Even more, you can choose your own caterer and we have no-corkage options to save you money.

What makes us different?

Our packages include the land hire fee plus boring but important bits like luxury toilets, power and distribution. What really makes us different is that with our venue, you also get on-the-day coordination and support from both an event coordinator and operations manager. Therefore, you can relax and be part of the party.

We will make sure that the drinks are ready, the food comes out on time, and the music starts when it should. Furthermore, we ensure any technical issues that may occur are dealt with immediately – so your wedding or event is remembered for all of the right reasons.

Can I bring my own suppliers?

As an outdoor wedding venue, the only supplier that we insist on is our structural company, Elite Tents. All other suppliers, including caterers, are completely up to you. Additionally, we can recommend some superb companies if you need some suggestions or inspiration for your wedding or event. We have worked with some amazing people who can undoubtedly add the wow-factor to your outdoor wedding.

Do you charge corkage if we bring our own drinks?

We have different packages available (see info below) but some include a corkage-free option so you can bring your own drinks. We will even chill and serve them for you at no extra charge.
