OPEN DAT AT WADDESDON MANOR
Living in a town that is just a stones throw away from beautiful Buckinghamshire, Waddesdon Manor has a special place in my heart.
I am a sucker for a stately home, and this beautiful National Trust property is certainly one of the best with its grandeur and beauty. Located just an hour from central London, it was built by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild in 1874, to entertain the fashionable world and house his collection of fine art. Luckily hundreds of years later this incredible work of breath-taking architecture and grounds is open for the public to enjoy. But better still, it is also the stuff that the wedding venue of your dreams is made of.
There are three stunning wedding options to choose from at Waddesdon, The Dairy based in the grounds of Waddesdon Manor, the Five Arrows Hotel, located just off the High Street of the village of Waddesdon, and the stunning White Drawing Room within the Manor itself.
The Waddesdon team would be delighted to welcome you to the estate for their very first Wedding Inspiration Day on Sunday 11th October, from 11am-4pm! A chance to meeting over 30 of the industry’s finest local and regional suppliers, and get the grand tour of the venue itself, whilst being inspired by the unique touches this luxurious venue offers.
