If you are looking for a spectacular venue with a magnificent architecture and breathtaking scenery, you need to check out Cairnwood Estate. Located in hie historic Bryn Athyn, Cairnwood Estate has been hosting weddings for over a century. The beautiful mansion, that resembles the French style castle, had been built as a private estate for the 19th century industrialist John Pitcairn and his wife. Cairnwood Estate grounds offer endless opportunities for stunning wedding imagery. And as Philadelphia wedding photographers, we always enjoy having unique eye-candy backdrops to work with on a wedding day.
When you first enter Cairnwood Estate grounds, you are swept away by the distinguished architecture of the mansion, expensive lawns, charming antique fountains and some of the most spectacular scenery from its lower terrace.
My first advice for every bride planning her wedding day at Cairnwood Estate would be to allot at least an hour for the couples portraits.There are just so many gorgeous backdrops and don't want to miss that marvelous opportunity for your wedding photographs.
One of my favorite spots to photograph at Cairnwood Estate is on the steps of the main entrance. If you will be coming to the venue on a limo or on a troller, this is exactly where your drive will probably pull over. So I love to start right from where you arrived at your wedding destination!
The arched entrance is also a great location for your family or bridal party photos.
Another all-time favorite location is the path leading from Cairnwood Estate to Glencairn Museum.The view from that point is just extraordinary as it overlooks the the beautiful hills of the Bryn Athyn District.It is also important to know that if you wish to have some photos taken in front of Glencairn Museum, you need to get a permit. Even though it is located so close to Cairnwood Estate, it is not considered to be the part of the property. You can find more information on how to get a permit for Glencairn Museum wedding photographs here.
