Cooks & Partners are thoroughly delighted to have been appointed to the trusted preferred supplier list at Wrest Park, one of English Heritage’s biggest venues for private & corporate events. Written into Wrest Park’s sweeping views, woodland avenues and waterside paths is the story of England’s love affair with landscape. Benefitted by stunning views and surrounded by decadence of the vast history of the building, Wrest Park has six spaces all available to hire which include The Library, Dining Room, Ante Library & Terrace, The Orangery & The Evergreen Garden.
For over three centuries the De Grey family created grounds and gardens to appeal to the eye and the soul. From formal design, through the more natural style of Capability Brown, to layouts complementing the chateau-style home, each generation left its mark. This amalgam of styles gives Wrest its unique charm. When he rebuilt the house in the 1830s Thomas, Earl De Grey, ensured the interiors were equally charming. He scoured auction houses to find pieces that were the perfect complement to the French style of the house. Clocks and china bought in Paris sat alongside newly commissioned sideboards and looking glasses supplied by leading London firms. In these opulent surroundings the earl and his countess hosted glittering dinners and balls for the cream of 19th-century society.
Wrest Park is a very popular wedding destination venue and was recently listed in Bride’s Top 100 Venues for 2018. The remarkable setting at Wrest Park, where the outdoor scenery is as impressive as the indoor decor, ensures that you’ll have an unforgettable wedding day.
You can sweep up the drive to the front door and enter into a soaring hall with a dramatic staircase where you can pause for wedding photos. From here you can choose between a number of ground floor rooms for your ceremony and celebrations. The suite of formal rooms open onto each other, so you can move smoothly from drinks to dinner to dancing. The glass-roofed orangery stands in the dazzling garden; you and your guests can gather for a ceremony bathed in sunshine or watch the stars come out as you’re seated for supper. Wrest Park is inundated with space and is also perfect for large corporate functions such as conferences, away days and team building.
Anna Souter, Hospitality Events Manager at Wrest Park of English Heritage said; “Wrest Park is delighted to add a new caterer to our already extensive list of accredited suppliers. We are very much looking forward to working with the prestigious and very knowledgeable team at Cooks & Partners as they come highly recommend to us.”
