Historical Wrest Park offers sweeping views, woodland avenues and waterside paths, the grounds and gardens having been created over three centuries by the de Grey family to appeal to the eye as well as the soul. The House has an eclectic range of styles incorporating formal design, the more natural style of Capability Brown and chateau-style chic. This blend of styles gives Wrest Park its unique appeal.
When he rebuilt the house in the 1830s Thomas, Earl de Grey, brought in Parisian antiques and 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, is the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable wedding day. Couples may sweep up the drive to the front door and enter into a soaring hall with a dramatic staircase where they can pause for wedding photos.
From there they can opt for a number of ground floor rooms for their ceremony and celebrations. The suite of formal rooms open onto each other, so guests can move smoothly from drinks to dinner to dancing.. Guests can gather for a ceremony bathed in sunshine or watch the stars come out as everyone is seated for supper.
