Compton Verney was originally built by world-renowned Georgian architect Robert Adam many of whose original designs, including pillars, cornices and rooms, remain today. The result is a bright, impactful and ideal space to stage wedding photos and extra decorations that you want to be the focus of everyone’s attention.
