Most of our Brides make their entrance by coming down the Grand Staircase and getting walked up the aisle to their beloved.
With your wedding ceremony as the focus of this joyful day, it’s only right that it takes place in an awe-inspiring location. The Great Hall with its ancestral character, historic features and stunning contemporary colour scheme is the perfect place to exchange vows.
For your evening celebrations, start your evening in style by greeting your guests from the elegant staircase. It’s a great way to make a grand entrance and meet the new arrivals before dancing the night away in the Great Hall.
The Saloon is really at the heart of the Davenport House. Many of our couples like to cut their cake here as well as capture some great photos in our gorgeous high backed stylish chairs. When winter comes, the fire gets lit and then it becomes a cosy place to hang out for you and your guests on your special day.
If you have your heart set on an intimate and personal wedding day, the Saloon is the perfect idea of a small wedding venue that will provide an idyllic setting for your wedding breakfast. With authentic, hand-painted wallpaper and marquetry flooring, this stylish and sophisticated part of the house sits overlooking the grounds for exceptional views while you share a memorable meal.
When the sun is shining, what could be better than exchanging your vows outside? Take each other’s hand on the front steps of the house, flanked by the dramatic pillars, and say ‘I do’ with the magnificent house in front of you and endless rolling fields behind. A magical garden wedding venue for the best day of your life.
Stone steps lead down from The Saloon to the terrace, lawns and lily pond, a sublime, tranquil spot in which to circulate with friends and family on warmer days. As an indoor and outdoor wedding venue, photo opportunities are in abundance both inside and out, from the secluded secret garden to the magnificent staircase and fireplaces.
