Deene Park wedding photography

Deene Park leaves a lasting impression on everyone ...

Just ask the Brudenell family. They arrived in 1514 and never left!

Stand on the stone bridge, turn 360° and you’ll see why Deene Park is one of Northamptonshire’s best wedding venues. 

From one spot, you can take in the grandeur of the house with its amazing architecture, exquisite english country gardens (listen carefully and you'll hear them whispering at you to explore), and the calming countryside (including the serenity of a huge lake, acres of parkland and ancient trees). 

And where else has Highland coos with noses that look like cross-stitch (from a distance!), black swans that know their camera angles, and stately stag statues that fool even the local fallow deer? 

And there’s a wildflower meadow on the way. (C’mon Mother N!)

Yep, Deene Park has it all.

My experience at Deene Park

A quick glimpse of Deene Park’s gatehouse each time I passed on the way to Stamford told me all I needed to know … that it’s right up my wedding aisle. But for years, it eluded me. Then three bookings (an engagement shoot, a wedding, and a styled shoot) came along in the space of three months. 

I marvel at Deene every time. But I feel I’ve barely photographed anything there. See, the more you explore, the more it gives. So whilst I always leave feeling frustrated that there’s so much more to do, the beauty is that every couple gets something different. And that’s not even taking into account the changing seasons. 

So I’m crossing all the things that you’ll give me a yell if you’re planning a wedding there!
