    Highly recommend their Winter Package

    Jess and the team helped us to have the most wonderfully special day. Jess' unwavering support, calm nature and amazing organisation skills made the wedding preparation process so seamless. The Temple is the most wonderful event space. I would highly recommend their Winter Package Deal. Best decision we made.

    A beautiful venue! My wife and I got married here in December 2019 and it was the perfect setting for our wedding ceremony. The staff were very kind and helped to make everyone feel welcome.

    We had the perfect wedding day at the Temple of Mi

    We wanted something simple and relaxed but special and that's what we got. Sectioning off the part of the Botanical Gardens by the temple works so well and the magnolia blossoms are the prettiest background ever!

    Perfect setting

    Just perfect for our intimate wedding, beautiful surroundings, friendly and helpful staff and at a good price. We hired for four hours, had our ceremony in the lovely temple with beautiful piano music playing then on to the lawn for drinks, a sit down buffet and lawn games whilst a wonderful harpist played, a perfect day.

    A wonderful day

    We had a wonderful day, with everything going off as planned. Everything was as we had agreed thank you, and went off without a hitch.
    The venue itself was exactly what we had hoped it would be, and we will certainly recommend it to any other couple looking for somewhere to get married.
