Stansted Park-Charlotte Wise photography


Welcome to the fairy-tale setting of Stansted Park.
This historic Edwardian house, with its elegant interiors, classical architecture and sweeping parklands can be yours exclusively for your special day.
Whether you dream of a small, intimate gathering in the house itself or a large, lavish celebration for all your family and friends in the grounds, our dedicated team will be with you every step of the way to create a bespoke experience you will treasure forever.

Stansted House is set in over a thousand acres of the South Downs National Park, with far-reaching views across open countryside and ancient woodland. This former home of the Earls of Bessborough is ideal for those wanting the personal touch for a ceremony, from the blue vaulted ceiling and stained glass of the private chapel to the lavish furnishings of the Music Room.

The historic grandeur of the Blue Drawing Room lends itself perfectly to a formal wedding breakfast while the large south-facing lawns offer a quintessentially English setting where larger parties can dine and dance into the night.

The classical Italian-style, west-facing main entrance provides a unique backdrop for photographs and is the perfect place to raise your glasses as the sun sets behind the cricket pitch.
