Wedding and engagement photography
Charlecote’s picturesque parkland and gardens make the perfect backdrop for memorable photographs, and we’re pleased to accommodate professional photography for both engagement shoots and wedding parties.
Please note, your photographer must have their own public liability insurance and sign a declaration to this effect. All photoshoots must be booked with the property in advance.
Where can we take photos?
Once you’ve booked your photoshoot, you’re welcome to take photos anywhere in the grounds that are normally open to the public. A map can be provided of all these spaces and we can also offer access for your photographer to the Gatehouse roof to take group pictures, if required.
Please note that the property is open to the public, and although the public are very helpful, it’s not always possible to take photographs in front of the house without people in shot. Photos must only include people from your party.
Unfortunately, we’re unable to offer photography packages for inside Charlecote’s buildings.
We can accommodate a maximum of four vehicles for a wedding party, and we will arrange access to Charlecote via the private drive. The bride and groom are welcome to use the private drive for the formal blue gates for your entrance.
Visitors and guests are not permitted to fly drones on or across National Trust land. Charlecote is also located in a no-fly zone due to its proximity to Wellesbourne airfield.
Increasingly drones are being used for weddings, and are only permitted if the drone operator satisfies the competent contractor criteria outlined in documentation, which must be discussed with the property staff two months in advance of the set date.
