Paxton House, which dates back to Georgian times, is a really fascinating and unique venue for a wedding. It provided an elegant and timeless backdrop for Joanna and James’ special day recently.
Joanna arrived in a showstopping classic car.
Pausing outside the Picture Gallery with her father and three bridesmaids who wore heavenly green dresses.
The Picture Gallery is sensational and houses a collection of over seventy paintings dating from the late 18th and early 19th centuries, many of which have been loaned by the National Galleries of Scotland. It’s one of the very few houses in the Scottish Borders that can accommodate up to 150 guests for a ceremony and dinner.
A very special moment!
This lovely image shows the scale and grandeur of this fabulous room.
Walking out at the end of the ceremony.
Paxton has the most incredible reception rooms with an outstanding collection of Chippendale furniture. Drinks receptions are held in these rooms and guests can take in the fascinating surroundings.
The magnificent steps at the front door.
Despite its size, Paxton has got a lovely friendly and warm atmosphere. It’s supported and loved by many people, many of whom volunteer to work in the house and grounds.
There are so many photo opportunities. Here’s a great group picture taken from the main steps towards the beautiful parkland.
A pretty entrance to the gardens.
A beautiful bride!
Departing in style.
Wishing Joanna and James every happiness in their future lives together.
