Choosing a wedding venue is one of the most important decisions a couple will make as they begin their new life together. Listed below are five reasons why Brantwyn Estate is the perfect venue for your special day!
1. It’s exclusively yours
Brantwyn Estate is reserved for one wedding at a time. The property is a former du Pont family residence and is a perfect example of Georgian charm situated on 60 acres of wooded landscape in the Brandywine Valley. This is your wedding day, and the entire estate is just for you and your guests to enjoy. The estate comfortably accommodates weddings up to 160 guests with the option of utilizing a tent for larger affairs.
2. The ceremony locations
You have the choice of three locations to exchange your vows. Each setting has its own enchanted ambiance with fountains and beautifully landscaped gardens that will provide an abundance of color and natural décor.
Upper Garden: As the doors of the mansion open, you will be escorted down the aisle of the manicured lawn of the Upper Garden to your soulmate. With the sun shining and the birds singing, it is the perfect spot to say “I do.”
Side Garden: The side garden’s brick walls, stately ivy, gorgeous flowers and fountain make for a wonderful spot for an intimate first look or family photographs. It can also accommodate small wedding ceremonies up to 75 guests.
Lower Garden: Imagine yourself descending the brick steps that will lead to the lower garden where you will be greeted by your family and friends. As you take that long-awaited walk down the aisle to that special someone, you will be in awe of the beautiful backdrop of trees, blooming flowers and a flowing fountain.
3. The photo opportunities
This historical estate, with its breathtaking views, is full of photo opportunities. From the moment your guests enter the private drive, they will be transported back to a bygone era of lawn parties and elegant receptions. As they enter the foyer of the mansion, they will be greeted with a grand, sweeping staircase and beautiful chandelier. Inside the home are separate rooms with four inviting fireplaces that can be decorated in your unique style; they will set the scene for an intimate dinner hour during your wedding reception.
