The Dairy, Waddesdon Manor Wedding Photography

Photographing weddings at The Dairy, Waddesdon Manor

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 place 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.
