“Think of a grand French chateau in miniature. The grounds of Wrest Park are adorned with stunning lawns, wooded walks and flower gardens, dotted with fountains, statues and ornate follies. If you yearn for stunning historic surroundings, mixing elegant French architecture with a grand and picturesque landscape, then Wrest Park is your ideal wedding day location”
IN MY WORDS
I grew up visiting wrest park as a child, when I think back to those times I am filled with magical memories of a place that felt like it was from another time. Opulence and History with little nooks to explore and get lost in. Now I get to experience it as a wedding photographer and it still has the ability to leave me spell bound and awe struck.
WHERE IS IT LOCATED
Wrest park in situated in the village of Siloe, Bedfordshire. It’s only 12 miles from Luton London Aiport, so super hand for those guests who may need to travel to the wedding.
Weddings on a grand scale! You can not escape the impact that wrest park has on it’s visitors and you really wouldn’t want to. This venue suits couples who are willing to embrace all of it’s beautiful rich history. DRAWING ROOM (Service 60 guests) has the most stunning blue and gold wall paper, fabulously framing your wedding photos with true opulence. And don’t forget to look up! The ANTE LIBRARY AND TERRACE (150 Drinks) is the perfect spot for drinks, with the grounds of Wrest park calling through its high doors, this central room really is the heart of the building, connect each room with true style. For your wedding breakfast you have the option of the LIBRARY (Ceremony 100, Reception 100), in true Wrest park style, the rich green walls give this room warmth and gold etched plasterwork creates a sense of grandeur that will leave your guests feeling utterly indulged for the day. For those holding and larger wedding you have the light and bright ORANGERY (Service 170, Reception 170) and the THE AMERICAN GARDEN MARQUEE SITE (Reception 1000, yes you read the right!!)
PICTURE PERFECT SPOTS
I don’t think you can take a bad photo at this venue. When I have shot weddings here I felt so blessed that every moment was framed with such beauty and history. For couple photos I would strongly advice allowing more time I normal suggest (which is 20mins) to make use of the grounds. The venue can offer a buggy to wizz you around the grounds to speed up the process but I would advice you would need closer to 40min if you want to capture all of it’s treasures.
