As soon as I pulled up at Ladywood Estate I knew I was in for a treat; set in the beautiful Rutland countryside it really does have a fairytale feel to it.
When I arrived they were busy setting up for a Hindu ceremony the following day, I headed over to the Orangery and was blown away. The stunning floor to ceiling windows take over one side of the spacious room and give some really beautiful light. The room holds 400 people, which makes it the go-to venue for large weddings.
Jan and Mike, the owners, manage to blend the antique feel of a manor house with the contemporary look of the Orangery and Pavillion – which also seats 400 guests. There were so many quirky items in the house, and look at that staircase!
The gardens were also something to behold; it’s obvious that great care and attention is taken with the upkeep of them, a variety of beautiful flowers making an excellent backdrop for wedding photos.
There really are some amazing opportunities for stunning wedding photos, inside and out, it’s definitely on my bucket list of venues – although if anyone makes use of the helicopter landing pad I may have to hire a second shooter to go up with you!
