Painshill Park - A brief history
Painshill Park was designed and created from between 1738 and 1773 by Charles Hamilton, a painter, plants man and talented designer, who dedicated his life to a unique landscape garden. Inspired by his Grand Tour visits to Italy and Renaissance and contemporary art he sought to create a beautiful and tranquil setting complete with follies, a lake, forests and shrubberies. Acquiring and building up his land to over 250 acres, the gardens were divided into two parts; the ornamental pleasure grounds to the south, with the lake as the central feature, and an adjoining crescent of open parkland to the north. Running out of money he sold the estate in 1773 and until the outbreak of World War II it was held by a series of private owners.
Today it is a beautifully restored 18th-century landscape park and gardens of exceptional beauty – as well as been given a Grade I listing in 1998 it was awarded the Europa Nostra Medal for its excellent high levels of restoration work.
The Conservatory which is a very large and permanently stationed marquee is the perfect setting for wedding ceremonies and receptions...
And then out into the private Walled Garden where you can enjoy a glass of bubbly on the terrace or view the gardens brimming with colourful flowers and aromatic herbs.
Painshill Park Surrey wedding photographer opportunities
We love the beautiful restored gardens and walking across lawns and through woods all of which provide wonderful backdrops for intimate and romantic wedding pictures.
As well as the tranquil lake setting of the atmospheric Gothic Temple we know many hidden treasures to add spice to your wedding photographs such as the Ruined Abbey, the Five Arch Bridge and the Chinese Bridge to name just a few.
A trip to these requires a buggy which holds four people including the staff driver - choosing what you want to include all comes down to the time you have.
And then back at the private walled garden for the reception, a perfect place for fun and celebrations and more lively informal reportage wedding photography.
