Whether you are at the start of your wedding planning journey or you are slowly, but surely making your way through what at times can seem like an endless list of things to do, your wedding venue is of the highest importance. Until you book your venue your wedding is a blank canvas and it’s nearly impossible to make any major decisions until you have worked out which style of wedding is for you.
Here we are shining a spotlight onto the beautiful Brampton Grange which has so much charm and beauty. Top it off with being set on 25 acres on a private estate, who could ask for more than that!?
Brampton Grange Wedding Venue and Conference Centre is centrally located and an ideal venue for those living in Northampton, Bedford, Milton Keynes, Wellingborough, Kettering and surrounding areas who do not wish to travel too far. Road access is easy from all directions and you can choose to take a scenic countryside route or a more direct route.
A UNIQUE BARN VENUE TO DIE FOR!
The beautiful Brampton Grange in Northamptonshire is the perfect setting to inspire future brides who are looking for that Insta-worthy wedding. This unique barn venue is one of Northamptonshire’s largest exclusive use venues.
High ceilings, timber beams, and exposed brickwork are just the beginning of the fabulous features of this delightful venue.
Their country house is exquisite; dating back to the 18th Century it exudes character and charm, but has also been lovingly restored by an Italian architect and is filled with modern touches.
With its sand-coloured natural stone, imposing arched porch framing the front door and attractive bay windows, not forgetting the sweeping driveway, the house is striking and instantly inviting. breathtakingly pretty, it provides a fantastic backdrop for wedding photographs.
Internally the décor of the property reflects its rich heritage, incorporating warm colours, such as terracotta and berries, with elegant cream, beige and gold. There are numerous receptions rooms with open fires ensuring guests are always comfortable and cosy.
The grounds are glorious with extensive manicured lawns, a traditional courtyard, a romantic walled garden, a swimming pool and tennis courts.
Within the estate are three barns that are used for civil ceremonies and wedding breakfasts.
The Verona Barn, with its exposed brickwork and timber beams, works well for intimate ceremonies while The Venice Barn is ideal for larger numbers. The third barn, The Florence Barn, is joined to The Venice Barn and this superb space is typically used for the wedding breakfast and evening entertainment. Spacious and sophisticated, it is contemporary in style and boasts a glass balcony overlooking the dance floor, allowing guests a dedicated chill-out area; a place to sit and talk and enjoy some drinks.
Alternatively, for large, lavish affairs, a marquee can be erected on the grounds. Featuring off-white drapes, fairy lights and a wooden floor, the marquee can be tailored to suit any theme.

The KTV team has been exceptionally lucky to style Brampton Grange many times, not only for photoshoots but for our clients too, and we adore the grounds at Brampton, even on a cold rainy day the views are truly spectacular. We’ve had the pleasure of creating lots of different styles in the barns at Brampton Grange from Rustic, to Graceful. Opulent and Rustic-Boho. There isn’t a style that is not complemented by this super setting. If you would like to read more about our Rustic-Boho styled photoshoot at Brampton Grange click here to read our other blog!
Tracey and the team at Brampton Grange are superb and you will not only have incredible service on the build-up to your wedding but during and after. We are hugely lucky to call the team at Brampton Grange friends.
We have asked the lovely Tracey to give us the inside scoop on her and the venue:
I've been asked to tell you a little about myself so here goes.
I've been here at Brampton Grange for 8 years and in that time I've seen hundreds of weddings, all very different and each one memorable for their own reason.
One question I'm asked a lot is do you deal with many Bridezillas and Groomzillas? My answer is always no and I think that's because of how we deal with weddings here. From the moment you book you have one dedicated person that you work with, this ensures that your wedding plans are perfect. And you can talk to us at any point during your wedding journey, not just the month before.
How did I come to work at Brampton Grange?
Well, I recommended that one of my colleagues apply for a job here, he took it and then 6 months later he suggested me for a position, so we ended up working together again. He has since moved on to new things and I now work with the lovely Yvonne, you'll like her.
What are your Hobbies?
I think that to really provide the best service in the hospitality industry you need to love it, live it and breathe it. You'll often find me reading wedding blogs and magazines. I also love looking at styled photoshoots and as an amateur photographer, it's great to get some ideas and inspiration too. Fortunately, I have a friend who is always up for modelling for me and of course, Brampton Grange offers a fantastic location for beautiful photos, I know, I'm lucky that I can use the estate with so many wonderful areas. My own personal favourite is the old barn in the woodland.
Likes and Dislikes.
This one is really easy..... I love chocolate, dogs, and horses. I dislike the cold. As long as I'm warm I'm happy.
Tell us about Brampton Granges’ History
Brampton Grange was one of the first wedding venues in Northampton, this year will be the 21st year of weddings and celebrations. It has a long and varied history and was once part of the Althorp Estate, a farm, an eventing yard, which if you look around, you'll still see remnants such as the mounting block and stable doors. We have a small but dedicated team who love what they do and each and every wedding is planned in its own unique way. No two weddings are the same.
Where is the best place at your venue for the perfect wedding photo?
If you like rustic, then bring your wellies and head down to our hidden barn and woodland area. But if grandeur is more your style, then the manor house is a beautiful backdrop
What is your favourite season for weddings?
Each and every season is wonderful here. The winter nights that draw in early help to create a magical atmosphere with the thousands of fairy lights twinkling away throughout the whole venue. But spring through til autumn offers wonderful views across the beautiful countryside. My own personal preference is spring, I love the colours of spring with the fresh green leaves and bright blue skies
Why is your venue the perfect choice for weddings?
Well let's be honest, we won't be perfect for every couple because each and every couple is looking for their own special something. BUT if you are looking for a beautiful modern barn venue, with lots of space, which is a pretty blank canvas then Brampton Grange is a great choice. There's also a very friendly team on hand to help with any questions and our Venice barn has floor to ceiling white draping included in the price. Did I mention we are a 100% exclusive use venue and we have optional accommodation too.
Are there any décor restrictions for your venue?
No restrictions other than don't put holes in the walls haha. We have a preferred suppliers list but are very open to you choosing your own suppliers, it is your wedding after all.
Tracey and the team would love to see you for a show around their amazing venue, If you are still looking for that perfect place in which to hold your wedding, we can assure you that Brampton Grange is well worth a visit. You can contact them here to book a visit or learn more.
