Reccommended photographer at this venue
I’m extremely proud to be a recommended Avington Park Wedding Photographer. Gorgeous, magnificent Avington Park is a magical venue for a wedding and a dream for a wedding photographer! I absolutely love it here – every time I get to come back I’m grinning from ear to ear as every wedding I’ve ever photographed here has been nothing short of stunning. The beauty of the building, the grounds and gardens, the rooms… it really has got the lot. But more than that; for all its undeniable grandeur it really does always feel like such a comfortable place to be. Trust me, it’ll become like a home from home and I am always looking forward to my next wedding there.
Avington Park is a wedding photographers dream; a beautiful mansion house set in its own parkland and lakeside estate just outside Winchester, available for use as an exclusive wedding venue. It’s quite simply stunning both inside and out. Beautiful formal reception rooms include the mirrored ballroom which is often used for ceremonies, the library and orangery for wedding breakfasts, and the large, pillared hall downstairs (with huge roaring fire for those colder Winter wedding days). Outside the beautiful gardens extend in every direction, with views out over the lake, along the river Itchen, or back towards the open countryside and farmland behind. It’s all quite simply breath-taking wherever you stand and whichever direction you look in.
Where to begin? As an Avington Park Wedding Photographer I could simply never tire of taking photographs here, and although there are definitely some signature shots it’s worth being sure to capture, every time I return I find new angles, backdrops and set-ups. The long, tree-lined avenue, the wrought iron bridge spanning the river, the fields in front of the lake (often with horses galloping around). Indoors the hall is a great option for group photos on damper days (or indeed on any day; I think it’s too good a space not to use). The staircase shot from above as the couple make their exit. Large group photos shot from the room. The huge dressing room with four poster bed… you get the picture. The list goes on and on. Oh, and if fortune smiles on you there might just be a peacock proudly showing off in the background. Or even on occasion in the foreground – we’re slowly becoming friends, I think…
The option of accommodation in one of the house’s private flats for the wedding couple – handy both for pre-wedding prep and as somewhere to crash when you’re finally all danced out. Plenty of other accommodation available locally with Winchester’s many hotels, and in the other direction the small market town of Alresford. Avington Park is very easy to reach, just a couple of miles from Winchester and the M3 so reachable from every direction.
You’re in very safe hands with the peerless and unflappable John front of house, ensuring that everything runs smoothly. Looking for something to keep you occupied in the morning before the ceremony? Bring your golf clubs and squeeze in a quick nine holes at the wonderful little Avington Park Golf Course.
