Sculpture Gallery Wedding Photography – Woburn Abbey
Photographing weddings at the Sculpture Gallery at Woburn Abbey
The Sculpture Gallery is located on the fabulous 3,000 acre Woburn Abbey estate, designed and built by Henry Holland in 1790 for the 5th Duke of Bedford. Originally built as an orangery, the Sculpture Gallery has its own private lake and stunning rose garden, which is surrounded by the estate’s famous deer park. This is one of the most majestic and elegant venues for weddings in the UK, with a capacity which can vary from 50 up to 250 guests. At all times total exclusivity is guaranteed.
If you love grandeur, fine architecture, opulent sculptures, and gorgeous gardens, this could well be the ideal wedding venue for you. Without doubt this is one of the busiest and most popular venues for many miles around. In every direction you look are some of the very finest sculptures imaginable, adorning the walls, the corridors and even the gardens of this magical wedding venue.
From my description above, you’ve probably gathered that I’m a big fan of the Sculpture Gallery for wedding photography possibilities. No matter what the weather is doing, this place really does tick all the right boxes for me, it epitomises sophisticated grandeur. At night time they beautifully floodlight the whole building, and this again makes for some incredible pictures; even the sculptures have their own uplighters, this really is photography heaven!
My favourite backdrop for pictures has to be the main gallery. The natural light coming through the huge floor to ceiling windows is always breath taking as it illuminates the majestic interior of this historic building. A close second has to be on the approach to the sculpture gallery as we drive past Woburn Abbey itself, and I’ll usually arrange for the wedding car driver to stop so we can capture a few pictures of the newlyweds with this sensational vista of the main house behind them
I’ve photographed 5 or 6 weddings over the years at the Sculpture Gallery. If you’d like to discuss your Sculpture Gallery wedding photography requirements, I’d love to hear from you, or if you’d like to learn more about hosting your wedding at the Sculpture Gallery click here.
