History & Romance: Bespoke Weddings at Delapré Abbey
Turn the beautiful Grade II* listed Delapré Abbey into yours for the day. Whether you’re planning an elaborate celebration or something intimate, we can provide a bespoke service from ceremony, breakfast, through to evening reception.
Whether you want an outdoor wedding in our flower-filled Walled Garden, an intimate ceremony in our country estate, a marquee on our lawns – or a little of everything – Delapré Abbey is the perfect venue for your big day.
Complete with painted ceilings and rolling parkland views, Delapré Abbey is a stunning Grade II listed house nestled in 550 acres of green space on the edge of Northampton, in the heart of the UK.
Wedding Ceremony and Photography
We have several stunning spaces to choose from, including the historic splendour of our Library, which offers stunning views of the Abbey’s grounds and is a popular choice for ceremonies.
You can also choose romance of our Salon, Drawing Room or grand Dining Room and enjoy everything in one place, from your ceremony and breakfast, right through to an evening reception complete with a mouth-watering menu courtesy of our award-winning catering team and head chef.
In 2022 our new wedding cottage accommodation, tucked alongside the Abbey’s main country house, opened – meaning bridal parties can stay onsite ahead of their big day while our happy couples can enjoy staying onsite when the guests head home.
At Delapré Abbey we proudly limit our weddings to 25 a year. This is to ensure all our couples enjoy a personal and tailored service.
Overlooking the stunning parkland and golf course
Our outdoor wedding license, granted in 2023, means our Walled Garden is now a popular choice for weddings at Delapré Abbey. This beautiful, enclosed space includes a large kitchen garden bursting with seasonal fruit and flowers, a network of paths, topiary and listed sculptures. Here, we host small ceremonies in our ‘thatched larder’ as well as using the whole space to hold humanist ceremonies for up to 100 guests.
The Abbey also boasts rolling parkland, a large lawn stretching across the south front, tree avenues and beautiful glass houses, perfect for making lasting memories. Here, with marquees on the South Lawn, we can accommodate weddings for up to 500 guests – with stunning scenery that proves perfect for capturing the wedding magic.
Award winning venue and catering

Most recently we’ve won these Weetabix Northamptonshire Food and Drink Awards:
