Amazing Autumnal wedding
We dreamed of an autumn wedding at the gardens and they definitely delivered.
The service was great and they let you have the freedom to make the day personable to you.
Food was great and there was a lot of food options to chose from.
The beautiful surroundings of the gardens gave the guest lovely views to go and explore and even if it did rain the ceremony tipi is just as lovely.
I wouldn’t have changed anything about our day, would highly recommend.
Autumnal wedding of dreams
Just wonderful from start to finish.

We couldnt recommend this venue enough
Looks brilliant day and night!
The perfect venue!
Dream wedding day come true!
Every member of staff, from Carrie our fantastic Event Manager to the bar/waiting staff, everyone made the day seamless. The food is to die for and every guest has commented since the day just how delicious every course was and how professional the waiting staff were.
The support from the venue before and throughout the day allows you to feel completely relaxed - we can't recommend this venue enough!
A big heartfelt thank you to every single member of the team at The Gardens for giving us the best day! Jenni & Richard x
