Stonor Park is an impressive and fantastically photogenic wedding location near Henley-on-Thames, Oxon. After passing through the intricate iron gates, you begin your journey down the elegant driveway through the parkland where fallow deer graze, the historic house and its 13th century Catholic Chapel slowly come into view.
Within these beautifully stunning grounds your marquee can be erected almost anywhere and as it is a park the number of guests are not an issue. You can pick from a number of stunning backgrounds, the front lawn is one of the preferred options for a wedding reception as this gives a truly fantastic view of the house and stone circle during your celebrations.

Stonor Park is part of the following Travel Ideas:
"Stonor Park sits in a secluded fold of hills in Oxfordshire, a remote, pretty red brick manor house that expanded repeatedly over the centuries and is now a popular wedding venue. Dozens of red kites circle overhead, making the most of the rising thermals, and the Italianate Garden and small arboretum are full of flowers. Serene Stonor has also found its way into the movies where it doubled as the Bladen Safe House, in which defecting Soviet General Georgi Koskov is being debriefed over caviar in the James Bond movie, The Living Daylights.
Of course Koskov (played by Jeroen Krabbé) turns out not to be defecting at all and after many reversals of fortune he is arrested and sent back to Moscow for some nasty retribution, while Bond (fresh-faced Timothy Dalton) gets Koskov’s girl in time-honoured Bond fashion. The external and internal scenes for Bladen were shot here, which meant that when Koskov is seized in a violent and explosive raid on the Bladen, a bit more of Stonor got damaged than the owners intended.
Perhaps not surprisingly they’re keener to hire it out for weddings rather than films these days."
