The Bradford – a French villa styled country estate near Chapel Hill and Raleigh
The Bradford is an elegant event space that was built in a rural part of Wake County near the Jordan Lake area. This amazing Raleigh area wedding venue comes from sisters Dana and Courtney, who own a wedding planning company called C and D Events. They began the work of creating an idyllic wedding venue in 2013. Their process in building this European style estate unlike any other event space in the Triangle Area was enhanced by their knowledge of how to run a wedding day.
Romantic Raleigh Weddings in a European style venue
The white brick manor home with entry circle has an adjacent ceremony lawn complete with a side yard garden has an unmistakable European ambience.
The Bradford is nestled on 12 acres in the quaint town of New Hill, North Carolina. It was intentionally designed to embrace the countryside of Europe while incorporating the serenity of the home. The White brick manor home contains a European style entry circle with large, expansive gardens throughout. Once you walk through the main house floor, you then enter their beautiful terrace with pavers ensconced in flowering shrubs surrounded by two gorgeous ballrooms for indoor receptions, music and dancing! This terrace is perfect for an al fresco reception amid The Bradford’s festive market lights.
The house itself has three levels where couples and their families may enjoy their cocktail hour, or an intimate wedding reception in the main fireplace room. Couples can relax with champagne and prepare in the two separate getting-ready spaces. The Bradford also contains bedrooms on the second and third floor levels for overnight accommodations. The Bradford offers a luxury weekend experience with concierge services and plenty of activities for family and guest entertainment.
The Bradford is a hidden countryside gem with privacy and plenty of guest parking. We love the lovely classic European look of the house and grounds and its versatility. Whether your wedding dream is a beautiful outdoor ceremony, an elegant seated dinner or a cocktail style dance party, The Bradford is a perfect escape from reality for your event!

After choosing each other, picking The Bradford for our venue was among the best decisions we could have made. Little did we know how important it would become with the pandemic coming about, because the space and accessibility that The Bradford afforded us helped us make this a safe and truly celebratory experience.Jemima Philip, December 2020 Bride
