Book Your Wedding with Graeme Park
A BARN IN HORSHAM, PA
It's hard to beat the romance and sophistication of a country wedding. Enjoy the feel of the soft afternoon breeze and the sound of relaxing birdsong during your wedding day at historic Graeme Park in Horsham, Pennsylvania. Share your first dance as a couple in front of the setting sun. Breathe in the unspoiled air of endless fields and gardens just waiting to be explored.
Whether your ideal wedding is rustic, traditional, chic or a little bit of all three, this venue can make it happen. Antique buildings pair with thick woods to create a backdrop with a heavy emphasis on nature. Take advantage of it to capture incredible wedding photographs that you'll never forget. Run barefoot through the meadows or dip a toe in the crystalline pond. You can also take first-look photos as a couple in front of a cascading waterfall.
Abundant flowers and lush gardens, not to mention a number of classic stone buildings, add flair to any outdoor ceremony and reception. And with so much space available, the location you choose to hold each part of your celebration is up to you. From a formal ceremony in the company of orchids or roses to an elegant tented reception with live violinists, the possibilities are endless. And so is your guest list.
Graeme Park has a lot of great areas to pick from, so it's easy to invite a lot of people for your wedding ceremony. Your only limits are the number of chairs you decide on. The size of your reception tent dictates how many people you can seat comfortably for dinner and dancing. Holding a cocktail hour on the front lawn of the Keith House or in front of a classical barn is no problem.
What You Should Know
Graeme Park provides you with the services of a certified wedding planner. That means much less stress thanks to their experience and smart ideas. They help you coordinate every detail of your wedding day, from reception tent to decorations, catering, music and more. On the day of the ceremony, the wedding planner is on hand to make sure everything goes smoothly.
It's important to know that you need a photo permit to take pictures on-site, which is available for an extra fee and requires filling out a form ahead of time. While you have a lot of creative freedom when it comes to customizing your wedding celebration, Graeme Park asks that you choose a caterer from a list of great people they've worked with in the past. That gives you the highest quality of service to make the event really special. They also coordinate everything else you need, from chairs and tables to the reception tent.
Since Graeme Park only permits outdoor weddings—you can tour the houses and barns on the property, but not hold events inside—that means that you need to keep seasonal weather conditions in mind. Ask your wedding planner for help with choosing the best dates for your ideal wedding.
What makes Graeme Park unique is its location. Both Graeme Park itself and the Keith House are considered National Historical Landmarks. Imagine getting married on the same spot where the Provincial Governor of Pennsylvania, Sir William Keith, resided during the summer. Built starting in 1722, this venue was around for the American Revolution and the birth of The United States of America.
Even if you're not a history buff, it's still easy to get swept away by the 42 acres of nature trails that make up Graeme Park. While you're having your makeup done, your guests can wander to their heart's content. During the reception—or before and after—head off for a hike with your spouse, taking in the panoramic vistas and spotting the local wildlife. You have exclusive use of the entire area, so get comfortable.

We loved this venue. The big tent with a semi permanent floor was a perfect rain plan, but we didn’t need it. We had our ceremony on the grounds and our guests enjoyed the expansive grounds during the cocktail hour and reception. We used a golf cart to transport guests who had difficulty walking, but other guests enjoyed the brief and scenic walk from the historic house to the tent. Perfect for families and Instagramers. Beth MacCausland, our coordinator at Graeme Park, was an amazing advocate, helping us find vendors, working with new ones and answering all our questions promptly. Plus, she bakes amazing wedding cakes!
Graeme Park was a beautiful venue for our DIY wedding! Beth allowed us to customize every aspect of our day, gave us tons of access to the park, and was helpful and supportive every step of the way. She had a personal touch that made my husband and I feel comfortable. Our wedding day did not have ideal weather, with thunderstorms rolling through all day, but Graeme Park and my other vendors were able to give me a beautiful outdoor ceremony with about 20 minutes of sunshine between storms. Make sure you get your deposit in quickly after you choose a date because this is a popular place!
I am a photographer who lives right around the corner from Graeme Park. I have been going there since I was a child for the beautiful scenery, peaceful walking paths, and tranquil lake. Not only does Graeme Park have a fascinating historic story, but recently it has become a wedding venue. I have had the privilege to work with Graeme on multiple occasions for weddings, engagement sessions, and other photo-related projects. It is the perfect spot for a "backyard" or "rustic" feel while also being vast enough for many different shots. I am looking into having my own wedding at Graeme Park because of its unique history and beautiful scenery. Having worked with Beth for a while now, I can say that she is amazingly friendly, a fantastic baker, and also up for the challenge of showcases your creatively unique wedding!
