Written into Wrest Park’s sweeping views, woodland avenues and waterside paths is the story of England’s love affair with landscape. 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 Park its unique charm.
When Thomas, Earl De Grey, rebuilt the house in the 1830s he 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.
This remarkable setting, 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.
