Alright, tell me more about Crondon Park!
Okay let’s start with the rooms and how it all works. There’s two main rooms, the first of which is The Baronial Hall, which is where you’ll likely be having your wedding reception. Walk on through the hall on one of the rarest wooden floors (just me that’s into strange wooden floor facts?!) to the Ryder Room. This is where you’ll likely have your wedding ceremony.
What I like about Crondon Park, is you’ve got plenty of room in an areas that aren’t too far away from one another. Everything’s seamlessly connected and flows super easily. From the Ryder Room through to the Baronial Hall and out into the beautifully maintained gardens, the perfect spot for wedding pics. No need to go trundling off for half an hour with your wedding party in swing trying to find a good spot for photos! AND Inside is all under one roof, so if it did rain, you don’t have to worry!
The Ryder Room – Perfect for Your Ceremony
What’s so good about the Ryder Room?
Seating up to 100 wedding guests, the Ryder Room is a great size and perfect for your wedding ceremony. With a slightly more modern look you still get that great barn feel and it’s fully air conditioned and temperature controlled.
Baronial Hall – Perfect for Your Rustic Reception
What’s so good about Baronial Hall?
A stunningly refurbished classic barn, originally built in the 1600’s! You get those classic Crondon Park LOVE letters that match the barn look perfectly and a space that can hold up to 150 guests!

Crondon Park Wedding Photo Ops
So I mentioned earlier, Crondon Park has that beautiful private garden that’s perfect for wedding photos. And it’s great to have opportunities so close by. Grandma doesn’t have to wander for ages in order to be in the group shots.
But you should definitely take a walk with your photographer, just the two of you. Because there’s so much glorious countryside to explore, you should definitely take 20 minutes to make the most of it!
It’s worth bearing in mind that Crondon Park is also home to their Championship Golf Course, and we can only utilise some of the close areas nearby if they’re not being used by the golfers. Which in my experience, hasn’t been a problem.
Often we can wait for the golfers to move on, but if you’re having a summer wedding, the likelihood is they’ll be gone by the time we get out for photos. That said, it’s always good to have a heads up just in case!
