Originally designed as an agricultural barn, it underwent a complete transformation into a wedding venue in 2015. The interior showcases exquisite fabric linings adorned with thousands of fairy lights, alongside a striking black and white dance floor. Our personally handcrafted oak bar is fully stocked with an extensive selection of beers, wines, and spirits.

Nestled within the original Grade II listed Granary structure, The Grain Store occupies the first floor, providing splendid views regardless of the weather conditions. Adjacent to the ceremony room lies a comfortable seating area, formerly the original pigeon loft, preserving its authentic charm with original brick and oak-beamed features—an ideal space for post-ceremony drinks during your wedding reception. On the ground floor, another seating area and a bar offer a diverse selection of wines, beers, and spirits to complement your celebration.

The Lawn

The charming courtyard lawn serves as an ideal spot for ceremonies during the warmer seasons (It’s also a great space for lawn games!).

I LOVE barn-style wedding venues!

The Granary at Fawsley is a collection of Grade II listed barns, which have been converted into a contemporary but rustic barn wedding venue and hotel. A Hidden Gem in a peaceful valley within acres of rolling green countryside in the heart of the historic Fawsley Estate, the venue offers stunning views of the surrounding landscape. The Granary is licensed for civil ceremonies in both the Fawsley Suite (seating up to 80) and the Barn (seating up to 200).

Originally an agricultural barn, it was fully renovated as a wedding venue in 2015 and features beautiful fabric linings with thousands of fairy lights and a black and white dance floor. The integral black and white dance floor looks stunning and is sure to get you and your guests on their feet.

Why ‘The Granary’ is Perfect for Wedding Photography

From a wedding photographer’s point of view, the great thing about ‘The Granary’ is that there is so much variety to the venue. Some venues can be quite limited in terms of the amount of space available and this can sometimes mean that you end up taking similar photographs each time you go there. This isn’t the case with ‘The Granary’ however. As it is so large, I know for a fact I would never have to take the same photo twice.

Looking for a Northamptonshire wedding photographer?

As a wedding photographer, I pride myself on offering something unique, and I understand it’s not a cookie-cutter approach. It’s about getting to know my couples and understanding what’s important to them. I like to build a rapport with couples so we’re like friends, and when it comes to their wedding day, I can just blend into the action, with no awkwardness, or fuss.

Then using my skills and creativity, I love to craft authentic, creative images that help you relive the moments time and time again. Through my imagery I want you to see how much fun everybody had, and see just how good everyone looked, including you!

Is this the rustic Northamptonshire Wedding Venue for you?

Before deciding and booking your wedding day at this venue, why not book a tour of the grounds! Have a good look around inside and out, speak to staff, get to know the place. I bet you will fall in love with it just like I have! I promise you the staff at this venue are amazing and will make you feel very welcome. If you do not wish to visit the venue right away, and would love to have a look at their wedding packages or view their virtual tour instead, then you can do just that through their website. I highly recommend also checking out their brochure, which is packed full of information!
