Cliveden House – A stunning and historical Berkshire Wedding Venue
Cliveden House, just north of Maidenhead in Berkshire is definitely on the list as one of my top 5 Berkshire wedding venues. It’s set in 376 acres of National Trust parkland and the building itself is steeped in history. You get a real sense of atmosphere as you travel up the long driveway to Cliveden House. Originally built in 1666 by the 2nd Duke of Buckingham, destroyed twice by fire it has been rebuilt and in it’s current beautiful form is a wonderful five star hotel, ideal for hosting your wedding celebrations. It’s hard to imagine a more perfect venue for a summer wedding with it’s wonderful terraces, gardens and sculptures. In winter, the cosy, panelled rooms are warm and welcoming for your guests.
The current house was designed in 1851 as a replacement for the fire damaged building that previously occupied the site. The arcaded terrace is all that remains of the original house. It makes a beautiful backdrop for wedding photographs. Sometimes as a wedding photographer, you are spoiled for choice when it comes to bride and groom portraits and Cliveden is one of those wedding venues that you could spend all weekend happily photographing in the various parts of the garden and house.
It’s definitely worth a visit if a palatial, historic house is on your list as the perfect place for your dream wedding. Emma Riddell is the wedding coordinator at Cliveden and you can contact her on 01628 668561.
