I absolutely love today’s tour of Stanstead Bury and it’s gorgeous gardens… But what I love the most is the story of Imogen.
Imogen is the venue’s custodian of sorts and back in 2013 she married in the grounds of this private Hertfordshire Manor House herself. Imogen completely fell in love with the venue, so much so that she wanted to share her own wedding day experience with others.
Read on to see how Imogen is now working with the owners of Stanstead Bury to welcome a small number of couples into their beautiful home each year…
Notes from Stanstead Bury
Stanstead Bury is the old Manor House in the village of Stanstead Abbotts, a pretty little village near Hertford in Hertfordshire. The venue is the private home of Mr & Mrs Trower and as of this year they have opened up the grounds to hold a maximum of four weddings a year within their beautiful gardens.
I held my wedding reception at Stanstead Bury back in 2013. I was lucky that my Mother knew Mrs Trower through the local parish Council and that she was bold enough to ask her if we could hire her grounds for our wedding reception!
