Stanlake Park is and has been a vineyard since 1979, and now boasts a rather lovely wedding venue amongst it’s grounds.
The grounds specifically are breath taking, with a walled garden and rolling countryside on it’s doorstep. I can immediately see plenty of beautiful backdrops for wedding photography.
Stanlake Park has two rustic style barns, The Coach House and The Vineyard Barn.
The Coach House
The Coach House is a ceremony only barn with a capacity of 90 people. This barn also features a stunning split level bridal preparation area (one of the nicest I have ever seen I must say). This barn has lovely high beams perfect for floral installations, and huge glass windows to let in plenty of light.
Just outside this barn is a lovely courtyard area perfect for a drinks reception following your ceremony, this is surrounded by characterful listed buildings and one side of the walled garden, all very rustic indeed.
The Vineyard Barn
The Vineyard Barn is the largest of the barns, and has capacity of 150 people seated. This would be your wedding breakfast and party barn, (ceremonies can also be held here for the larger wedding). I was pleasantly surprised once I walked through the heavy wooden door at the sheer magnitude of this building, it’s very unassuming from the outside!
It’s perfectly laid out into three sections with huge windows all down one side (not your typical dingy dark windowless barn I can tell you).
My creative mind was whizzing, imagining the floral possibilities in this space.
All in all I was super impressed with Stanlake Park, and I can’t wait to work here hopefully in the not so distant future!
