We can recommend an extensive portfolio of suppliers, all of whom have been well tried and tested, having worked previously with us. Take advantage of this huge bank of knowledge to find just the right florist, musician, entertainer, photographer, car hire company or hotel: finishing touches which make all the difference to creating a very special, unique day. A wedding at the Dairy also offers the truly exclusive opportunity to have photographs taken outside Waddesdon Manor itself. The perfect memento of your special day.

Guests enter the Dairy via the peaceful inner courtyard leading to the West Wing overlooking the lake, home to an unusual collection of waterfowl. Running along its entirety is a wide terrace with two pavilions extending out over the lake, ideal for summer drinks receptions. Or in winter, gather round roaring fires inside the West Hall. The Dairy is licensed for civil wedding ceremonies and partnerships in the Inner Courtyard, West Hall, Wintergarden and Lakeside Pavilions and the Secret Garden. Our local church, St Michael and All Angels, is just a short walk from the Dairy.

Adjoining the West Hall, this classical room is made predominantly of glass with exterior wooden slatted blinds and has as its focal point a Roman sarcophagus, now used as a water feature. The stone floors in this room make it ideal for dancing. An impressive room with vaulted ceiling and two huge open fireplaces, the West Hall can seat up to 136 guests for dining. Additional guests, up to a total maximum of 160, may be invited for dancing and evening entertainment. Doors from the West Hall open directly onto the terrace.

The Dairy’s Executive Chef meets all wedding clients to create a bespoke menu, using only the best of British produce and seasonal ingredients. He can also advise on appropriate accompanying wines, chosen from a banqueting wine list reflecting Waddesdon’s links with Rothschild vineyards around the world.
