I’ve been watching alot of rick & morty recently and it’s really difficult to write anything of consequence when you have the terryfolds song stuck in your head. To give you a flavour of the lyrics, it goes something like ‘i want to take you to the terryfold dance, wanna come with me and grab my foldy holdy terryflaps’ – yes, it makes no sense, but it is bloody brilliant.
So here we are, welcome to a Quinton House Wedding! It’s a relatively unknown venue in the Northamptonshire area, as far as I understand it’s a labour of love rather than a full time venture set up by one very entrepreneurial individual. The building is in fact a full time school which then of course impacts the times of year you’re able to get married, but being a private school means that the holidays are generally longer than those of state schools so you’ve got a bit of a bigger window to aim at. At the private school that I used to work at the summer holidays were eight weeks and if memory serves Easter was three weeks and Christmas the same. The Ballroom at Quinton House is a truly beutiful room to get married in. It rivals Stowe and Kelmarsh Hall in it’s style and design, huge ceilings with carvings, moulded plaster inlays and incredibly grand, stately looking portraits from a bygone era. The outdoor locations look superb in the british sunshine and there is no better place to get married than under a tree in a forest. Typically suited to more intimate weddings Quinton House is the perfect spot for those looking for a charming wedding venue in Northamptonshire. The grounds are also littered with great spots for couple portraits and bridal party photographs. Plenty of architectural features to play with and massive evergreen trees make it a perfect spot for all seasons. I’ve only ever seen it styled in a vintage fashion, think high tea, ice cream vans and bunting. The venue however is of such a style that it would be quite easy to pull of a more grand affair if that’s what you had dreamt of, a marquee in the grounds would be the perfect space to host a bigger evening reception, plus it’s a school, so they definitely have the space. Being a school, it would be really good fun to mess about with some portraits in the classrooms, but I’m not sure if the current headmaster would approve. Would be great or a laugh though, maybe that’s one for a styled shoot…
check out these two! amazing, so happy and smiley, and them flowers – did you ever see such a summery floral arrangement? Quinton House (www.quintonhouse.co.uk) is a relatively new venture into wedding territory, its a lovely school and makes a really intimate wedding venue. The team running the show loved Sam & Stuarts wedding so much they put them on the front page of the website.
Heres what Boutique Weddings they have to say on their website:
Introducing Quinton House as Northampton’s New Premier Wedding Venue. A unique venue designed for all trend setting brides, offering a contrast of grandeur for the Civil Ceremony, with a vintage styled Conservatory for a laid back affair as you party into the evening with family and friends.
Elegance married with beautiful designs and a relaxing environment (whilst still keeping some traditions!) At Boutique Weddings we create events with a difference, which is why we not only look at wedding décor, but also how this style works through the entire wedding day. For instance, for vintage styled weddings, treat your guests to a Cream Tea & Bucks Fizz reception, then surprise them with a table picnic served from beautiful wicker hamper baskets on each table instead of the typical 3-course meal, finished with dessert—a selection of cakes presented on vintage cake stands.
