All imagery and words by Laura Babb, one of Smashing The Glass’s trusted Smashing Suppliers
Good morning STG readers. I’m Laura, a proud Smashing Supplier, and I’m thrilled to be sharing my first ever post for Smashing The Glass. I went off on assignment a few weeks ago, with my camera in hand, to the beautiful Waddesdon Estate.
The Waddesdon Estate is owned by the Rothschild family — a banking family of Jewish origin — and Lord Rothschild is known for his love of and support of the arts. Waddesdon Manor itself is a National Trust property and was designed by an eminent French architect, so it really is quite curious to see a seemingly French chateaux nestled in the Buckinghamshire Countryside.
The estate itself is spread over 6000 acres of land and encompasses 4 different venues that not only cater for weddings but also cater for all budgets and tastes. â€¨â€¨The individual venues are driving distance from each other, so even if they had four weddings happening at the same time, you’d never know and each of the venues feels very exclusive.
