Delapre Abbey, nestled in the heart of Northampton, offers a rich historical backdrop dating back to the 12th century when it served as a monastery. It is now a Grade II listed building within 550 acres of Northampton parkland.

With its striking architectural allure, encompassing impressive exterior, enchanting gardens, and historic interiors, the Abbey presents a fusion of old-world charm and contemporary comforts, rendering it an idyllic wedding venue in Northamptonshire.

From the Abbey's stunning architecture to the quirky charm of the Walled Garden and the broad sweeps of parkland, every spot offers a unique photo opportunity.

Couples can choose to exchange vows amidst timeless elegance, whether indoors in the intimate ambience of the Drawing Room, Salon, or Grand Dining Room or if you have always wanted an outside ceremony you can choose to have a romantic ceremony in the Abbey’s Victorian garden. It's such a picturesque addition since 2023 and I was the first to Delapre Abbey Wedding photographer to capture their first outside ceremony.
