One Venue, Three Stunning Ceremony Options
The Gardens is licensed for both indoor and outdoor civil ceremonies, and you’ll have the choice of three stunning options:
- The Gazebo is our outdoor ceremony option, suitable for up to 130 of your friends and family. Situated in the centre of our grounds, it offers 360-degree views of stunning English country gardens. After the ceremony, you can enjoy a romantic stroll around our 16 individual gardens with photo opportunities at every turn.
- The Croft is our indoor ceremony option and perfect for more intimate affairs, seating up to 80 guests. Situated above our barn, it’s flooded with light and can be decorated and styled as you wish.
- The Barn is our second indoor ceremony option, suitable for up to 130 guests. It provides a versatile space for wedding celebrations with large windows overlooking the gardens to bring the outside in. In the evening, The Barn transforms into the perfect space for your wedding celebrations with a fully stocked bar and dance floor suitable for up to 240 evening guests.
Romantic Tipis with Fire Pits and Cascading Fairy Lights
Connected to The Barn, our bespoke interlinked tipis add the wow factor to any occasion. Romantic fairy lights cascade from the stunning wooden beams, while fire pits exude subtle light and warmth, creating the perfect atmosphere for a magical wedding breakfast. The Tipis seat up to 130 guests for a sit down meal and 240 for a buffet.
Between November and February, the Tipis transform into our Tipis Restaurant and a celebration of Kent, the Garden of England. With styling from Hire Love and a rustic, warming menu of seasonal British meals, the tipis offer the perfect location for a cosy wedding during the winter months.
