This imposing Jacobean manor house stands in eight acres of beautifully maintained gardens near the historic town of Oundle in Northamptonshire. I have been fortunate in attending several weddings there, in my capacity as a Peterborough wedding photographer, and I know you have to see the place for yourself to fully appreciate the beauty of this outstanding wedding venue. When you book Wadenhoe House for your wedding, the house and grounds are yours for the day to make your ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception truly special and filled with lasting memories.
It offers a completely bespoke wedding, catering for the special requirements of the bride and groom, and there are no set formulas you must adhere to. The wedding co-ordinator will provide you with a discreet service and will give you as much, or as little help as you desire.
The house has grand and airy public rooms with stone-mullioned windows that overlook the magnificent gardens, rolling countryside and the River Nene. The Ward Hunt and De Lacy rooms are used for wedding ceremonies and for receptions of up to 56 guests.
For larger wedding parties of 80 – 140 people, Wadenhoe house can provide a splendid marquee in the grounds, where perhaps you and your guests will choose to enjoy live music and a barbecue. Imagine the wonderful wedding photographs your wedding photographer can take at a romantic venue such as this.
Wadenhoe House has an extensive cellar and you are guaranteed to be served fine wines at your reception. Meanwhile, the Head Chef and his experienced team can prepare dishes to suit all tastes. There are also 27 very elegant and stylish rooms maintained to a high standard, should any of your guests require accommodation after the event, and a four-poster bed for the happy couple.
If Wadenhoe House appeals to you, why not arrange a meeting with the wedding co-ordinator and have a tour of this magnificent, old building? The present owners are very proud of the place and its history and they love to show visitors around. It’s not just a beautiful and unique venue, but also a family home, and has been welcoming visitors since 1617.
Whether you are planning a small, intimate wedding or a large society event, you will be made to feel more like a house guest than a customer, if you choose to celebrate your special day in Wadenhoe House.
