The Dairy Waddesdon Wedding Photography
Photographing weddings at The Dairy Waddesdon
The Dairy on the Waddesdon Manor Estate is without doubt one of my favourite places to photograph weddings! I’ve been one of their main recommended wedding photographers for over fifteen years, and to date I’ve photographed over 200 weddings and events at the venue; I just love working at this wow location. The Dairy is a very romantic setting for weddings with its lakeside gardens, colourful flower borders, wonderful architecture and delicious food. On my gallery above, and on my blog you’ll see several hundred pictures from former weddings I’ve attended there.
The Dairy was built as part of the estate created by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild at the end of the 19th century. It was a working Dairy housing the Baron’s prize-winning herds of cattle. The buildings and garden fell into disrepair, but in 1989 Lord Rothschild initiated an extensive restoration programme at Waddesdon Manor, which included the Dairy and its Victorian water gardens created by James Pulham in the 1880s. Now that the prize-winning herds of cattle have vacated, weddings are now the main events held at The Dairy, and most years I attend about ten weddings at this super venue.
There are so many gorgeous backdrops at The Dairy, everywhere you look there’s the absolute wow factor! My favourite settings include the Secret Garden, the waterside pavilions, the extensive flower borders, the central courtyard, and then there’s Waddesdon Manor itself if you’re happy to go for a short drive after the wedding breakfast. Every aspect of this waterside venue combines perfectly to create the most amazing setting for your photographs, and throughout my gallery you’ll see pictures taken at this idyllic location.
If you visit The Dairy for a show round you’ll most likely see my wedding display album, which contains over 250 of my favourite pictures from the venue. Each spring I also attend their Wedding Inspiration Event, this is a great opportunity for you to view the venue, and to meet The Dairy’s 50 recommended wedding suppliers.
