Stoke Place Weddings
When you’ve found your perfect wedding venue, you just know. Yet, finding your dream venue sometimes takes time and patience. Imagine a beautiful Queen Anne Mansion House situated on 26 acres of secluded parkland. Add in the convenience of having exclusive use of the venue from midday on your wedding day until 9 am the next day. If that sounds great, you may want to consider a Stoke Place wedding.
Great History and Location
Built in 1690, Stoke Place was originally built as a family home by royal chef, Patrick Lamb. In 1764, Lieutenant General Thomas Howard purchased the property. Two wings were added to the home. Lancelot Brown, sometimes called ‘Capability Brown,’ designed the gardens in the 18th century. Since that time, the landscaping has kept its unblemished beauty. Starting in about the mid-20th century, Stoke Place began operating as a manor house hotel.
Stoke Place, located in Buckinghamshire, feels like a secluded country mansion, but it is located just 30 minutes from the heart of London, and only about 15 minutes from the M25. This makes it an ideal wedding venue for couples wanting to get away from the stress of the city without having to travel too far.
When planning your wedding at Stoke Place, the place is yours exclusively for the day, so you can plan the wedding of your dreams. Whether you want a small, intimate ceremony with 20 of your closest family and friends or you prefer a larger celebration with up to 200 people, the staff will help you create your perfect wedding celebration.
When booking the venue, you can use the ballroom, barnroom, and lakeside area for your ceremony, reception, and other wedding-related celebrations. Because there are both indoor and outdoor spaces available, this venue is a wonderful option no matter the time of year. While exclusive use of the venue typically ends at 9 am the day after your wedding, you can even add in a champagne breakfast to extend the celebration until 11 am.
Great Wedding Packages
Every couple wants to know that they are getting the best deal out of their wedding package. Good food is an important part of any wedding celebration. As a couple, you get a complimentary menu tasting with your wedding package. This is a great way to decide for sure what you want on your wedding menu. Wedding stationary, including menu cards and table numbers, are also included in your wedding package. Your table linens, cutlery, crockery, and glassware also come as part of the wedding package.
One great bonus for the couple getting married is that they get to enjoy complimentary use of the bridal suite for the night after the wedding celebration. This includes a delicious wedding breakfast the next morning. With 39 luxurious bedrooms, there is plenty of space for your closest family and friends to also spend the night.
The rooms have great accommodations, including flat-screen TVs, private bathrooms, and gorgeous views. Along with a full English breakfast the next morning, guests spending the night at Stoke Place can also use the on-site gymnasium, which is open 24 hours a day.
Great Photo Opportunities
With a Stoke Place wedding, you have 26 acres of outdoor beauty to provide beautiful wedding photos. The gardens provide gorgeous photography opportunities. Lakeside photos are a must for any couple getting married at this venue. The beautiful water and tall trees will provide a stunning backdrop for your wedding photos.
The interior of the venue also provides many great chances for wonderful wedding photos. For example, Stoke Place has several magnificent staircases, some with large chandeliers overhead. A photo of the bride walking down one of the staircases provides the perfect opportunity to showcase the bride’s lovely dress.
A picture always speaks so much better than words. I am sure that these photos from a March 2018 wedding at Stoke Place will help you better understand the beauty and elegance of this venue.
