Are you thinking about having a barn-style wedding? If so, you need to check out Donington Park Farmhouse Hotel
Hey – thanks for stopping by, congratulations on your engagement!
Donington Park Farmhouse Hotel is located in Castle Donington in Derbyshire. Castle Donington is often known for the famous Donington Park for the race track and this is also where the Download festive takes place each year. Not far from the race track is a beautiful, peaceful barn-style wedding venue ready to host your beautiful wedding day and cater to your needs. Every time I am at Donington Park Farmhouse Hotel, I am just in love with the place. Yes, it is the same venue just always dressed differently.
I love the layout of Donington Park Farmhouse Hotel, the fact that there is a choice of two rooms for your wedding ceremony. One room for those smaller weddings and another for the bigger wedding ceremonies, the bigger room is also used after the wedding for the first dance. One room I do love is the pigsties, this is generally where the wedding breakfast is served, the layout is beautiful – I know it used to be an actual pigsty but it is beautiful, and the way it can be decorated just simply transforms it into something wonderful. I have been lucky enough to photograph many times at Donington Park Farmhouse Hotel; each wedding has been completely different.
It’s your wedding – style it your way!
I have had a gothic wedding to elegant princess-style wedding at the wedding venue. No matter how you see your wedding day styled, it is your wedding, and it’s unique to you, just like you! What I love most about weddings is that just how much they can look completely different, that is the beauty of art and design; we all have a vision for our wedding day and how it should look for us because we are all different so each wedding should be different.
Donington Park Farmhouse Hotel was built in the seventeenth century which still today has original brick and timber. The venue has a warm yet rustic charm to it. This venue is probably one of the first barn-style wedding venues to have started in the country which is one reason to love it more, another reason to love the venue is that it is a family-run business. I always find a family-run wedding venue is always much more enjoyable to be at; the owners and workers pride themselves in giving amazing customer service. Every time I have had the chance of photographing a wedding at the venue, the staff have always been so friendly and welcoming, the timings have always been great, and they understand if things don’t run on time as planned.
Donington Park Farmhouse Hotel has so many glorious photo opportunities.
Not only do they have a beautiful garden for group photos, but they also own the field opposite the venue. The field opposite is magnificent; depending on the time of the year will depend if it has any wheat growing or not. The photo opportunity can vary depending on the time of year – however, is still so much variety when it comes to photographing at this spectacular wedding venue.
Now I’ve talked about the glorious picturesque venue, can we now chat about the food! The food never disappoints; it is always beautifully presented and tastes heavenly. Whether you have a sit-down meal, a bbq, or carvery style – I can confirm that all of the menus are yummy!
Whatever your style is for your wedding day – Donington Park Farmhouse can easily be transformed to suit your vision for your special day.
