Comments from Paul Martin:
Offley Place is a 17th century country house set in its own grounds, in the pretty Hertfordshire village of Great Offley. The village of Great Offley has all the charm you would expect from a pretty English village. It is reputed to be named after Offa, King of Mercia who had his palace here. Offley Place offers a wide variety of facilities for a whole range of different occasions, specialising in weddings, receptions, conferences, private parties, special events, accommodation, christenings and child naming ceremonies.

Since my last and only visit to this delightful location, Offley Place has been undergoing major renovation during the winter. Creating a conservatory fine dining restaurant with 16 luxury bedrooms, the traditional style has been enhanced by the designers with a contemporary boutique style to all the interior areas. These changes were completed fro re-opening in June 2007.

Needless to say, the photography opportunities are very good both inside and outside, particularly for weddings during summer months. I thoroughly enjoyed the Orchid and walled gardens with many surrounding trees, and was able to produce some creative portraits. I have no hesitation in recommending Offley Place as a fantastic venue and for memorable wedding photography.
