Weddings at Wrest Park

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.

This unique 19th century mansion combines English architecture with the style of an 18th century French chateau. There's an array of rooms available to host your perfect day. The magnificent 92 acre gardens also combine three centuries of English garden design, providing the perfect background to your day.

On select dates throughout June and September, you can book our stunning Pavilion Marquee situated at the Petit Trianon Lawn, complete with flooring, lighting, furniture, toilets and bar. You just need to arrange your own catering and add your own personal touches and decorations.

We just wanted to send a message to say thank you SO much for everything everyone did for our wedding at Wrest Park on Friday! Words can’t explain how happy and perfect the day was for us! Everything was so seamless and flowed so well on the day, we were over the moon. Not once did I have to worry about anything. All the suppliers worked so well together - perfectly orchestrated by yourself and we will be forever appreciative of that. What a venue! What a day!
