Date Posted:15/03/2019

Northamptonshire’s recently rebranded Whittlebury Park is a stunning wedding location with two ceremony spaces and four reception venues, welcoming same-sex couples to celebrate their special day in style. Whittlebury's range of bespoke packages and venue flexibility ensures that wedding parties of all sizes can enjoy the beautiful countryside surroundings all year round, starting from £8,900.* As the five-year anniversary approaches of when same-sex marriages became legalised in England Wales, and with their 25 years of experience coordinating weddings, Whittlebury is welcoming more couples than ever to their exceptional venue. 

As an independently owned estate, the Whittlebury Wedding Team have a flexible approach to each wedding, meaning that traditions can be either kept or adapted to suit each couple. One of the most significant parts of any wedding is walking down the aisle and couples can choose to do this together, or separately and stand at either side of the altar. Whittlebury’s in-house wedding coordinators will ensure that all couples feel comfortable and prepared, whatever is requested.  

Head of Weddings, Janine Hunt said, “Having coordinated hundreds of weddings at Whittlebury over the past 15 years, I am really excited to meet even more couples in 2019. We’re proud of our heritage but we are also always looking to the future and we want all couples in Northamptonshire and beyond to make Whittlebury their wedding venue of choice and in return we promise to create a stress-free, perfect day they will never forget.”

It’s not just about a sensational ceremony, after the vows are read, the celebrations can begin in one of Whittlebury’s flexible Wedding Reception spaces. Seating and tables (including the top table, if used) can be configured to any layout with the rest of the space free to be completely transformed or subtly styled as desired.

Whittlebury is also a perfect destination for Hen and Stag dos or just a great night out with friends before the big day. There is on-site accommodation available with over 200 bedrooms so that couples can make a weekend of it and enjoy every moment with friends and family.

Whittlebury’s Wedding Open Evening is taking place on Thursday 25th April 2019. Places are free of charge however booking is essential.
