Not often do you experience that perfect mix of historic grandeur and romantic intimacy, yet that is exactly what I discovered at Sutton Bonington Hall. This beautiful country house tucked away in rural Nottinghamshire offers you a splendid retreat, nestled in beautifully manicured gardens and adorned with pleasing features throughout.

Drawing Room

It is worth keeping in mind that all these images were taken on a weekend in December and not a summer’s day. It is wonderful to have such a classic light room in décor and with floor to ceiling glass doors to one side, allowing this room to be flood with natural light. A notable feature in this room is the gorgeous painting that brings a real sense of historic charm to this space. There is also a beautiful fireplace, perfect for floral arrangements and great space at the ‘marriage end’ for a piano or harp perhaps.

This room is intimate without feeling crowded and the tasteful statues and doors closing off the room to the conservatory are delightful. And what a versatile space, this later magically becomes your dancefloor, with space for a whole band without compromising how hard you can throw those party moves.

Conservatory

Now here is a real treat! So light and calming. I adore the jasmine covered wall, which has lots of little fairy lights through them. The raised nature of this room allows for pleasing views across the manicured garden and out across to the lawns and mature trees. The simplicity of this room quietly booms elegance and style.

Later in the evening, the conservatory can be used to serve your evening food as well as provide a rest and relaxation space. The doors are kept open so that your guests can still be part of the party and have a great view of the dancefloor.

Bridal Suite & Adjoining Room

With 3 large windows showering you in natural light, luxury fabrics draped by the bed and views out to the garden, you will find it impossible not to delight in this wonderful room. There is a bright bathroom next door with some charming carved horses and a parrot sculpture bringing real character.

With plenty of space to spread out and relax, you will thoroughly enjoy having your hair and make-up done here. The room next door has the most soothing blue décor and the light that shines through in December is a dream for detail shots and portraits.

Library

A highlight for me is the Library. With its glorious dark woods, luxurious furniture and the heat of a real fire, it is a real wintery joy. All of these come to life on a dark December night. This room provides the perfect setting for romantic fireside portraits and also doubles up as a great place for group portraits when you would rather not keep your relatives out in the cold for too long!

Grounds and Gardens

The façade is stunning in all weathers and is a gorgeous backdrop for large group shots. The gardens are glorious from all angles; whether the house is in the background or the lawns and trees, you have a beautiful view.

Handily, there is a path up the side of the lawns and garden so even if it is a little damp, you can reach the end of it without ruining your shoes! As much as you might prefer to spend your time in the warm beautiful interior spaces at a winter wedding; you could easily take a very short amount of time outside and still achieve the most stunning images. Winter Weddings at Sutton Bonington Hall really do offer you the best of everything.
