    Stunning whatever the weather

    We are local to Wrest Park and have visited in all weathers, the view from the terrace and feel of garden area is always something special. Held our wedding reception June 2016. WP team happy to work with you to create your perfect day and together with Harts catering, Wild Orchid flowers and Duchess & Butler our dreams definitely came true. The library was a stunning venue for our wedding breakfast and we had a very special first dance on a twinkling dance floor in the gold room!! Definitely recommend it!!

    Beautiful setting fairytale like setting & service

    We got married there in Sep 2011 and it was perfect! The grounds were just amazing and breathtaking. All our guests loved it! The service - esp Joanne Cameron - was exceptional. We got so much more value for our money vs some of the other places we were looking at - esp in London! Our guests (most from London) felt like it was a beutiful country break...
    Loved it loved it loved it!

    Thank you for making our special day so perfect. We had a fantastic day and would like to thank you all for all you did in both the run up to the wedding and the day itself. The staff serving the wedding breakfast were superb: polite, professional and incredibly attentive. We could not have asked for more. The food was spectacular and many of our guests commented upon the high quality of the food, espeically when taking into account the catering was for 90 people. Thank you once again
