About The Gardens

Benover Road, Yalding
Kent, ME18 6EX

Exclusive use venue set within 12 acres of beautiful grounds. A truly magical setting for your dream wedding with endless photographic opportunities and amazing indoor and outdoor ceremony options.

The beautiful barn has been lovingly restored in a contemporary style to provide you with the ultimate blank canvas to create your unique and dream wedding celebration. This seamless renovation makes a versatile setting for wedding ceremonies large and small. If you are looking for something different, something to make your wedding stand out from the crowd, then this is the venue for you. Connected to our barn are two interlinked tipi’s to add that wow factor to your wedding. Romantic fairy lights cascade from the stunning wooden beams whilst the fire pits exude subtle light and warmth creating a serene ambience. The sides of the tipi’s can be lifted, revealing impressive views of the gardens and creating an extended magical space.

Our delightful gazebo, situated in the centre of the gardens provide the most picturesque setting for your outside ceremony. With space alongside for up to 140 guests you really can create the perfect wedding day. You and your guests can enjoy a romantic stroll around the 12 acre gardens and photographers love the exquisite backdrops capturing every moment so that you can cherish your day forever.

If you and your guests want to take a few minutes out to soak up the atmosphere or reflect on the day then our viewing platform is an amazing break out area. With magnificent views across the gardens, it gives you time to relax and maybe enjoy the perfect sunset too.

Included within your wedding package at The Gardens, we are delighted to offer you exclusive use of our very own bridal dressing room located on the upper level of the barn. Available from 9am on the day of your wedding through to midnight. A place where you can escape from the whirlwind of wedding preparation and concentrate on you and your bridal party, maybe even enjoy a few bubbles. It's a tranquil retreat where you can make your final preparations, be pampered, and relax ahead of those all-important vows. A great opportunity for those pre-wedding photographs too. Your space to enjoy. 

We would love the opportunity to discuss your wedding plans and to find out what would make the perfect package for you. Contact our team to arrange a viewing, we look forward to meeting you.

The Gardens was the most beautiful and perfect location for our wedding and we could not have been happier to have picked it for our special day. The team and everyone who helped out could not have done enough for us and it was clear that it was their main aim to make sure everything went smoothly and ‘just right’. In the lead up to the wedding everything was handled in such an efficient and professional way that we were so much less stressed than we could have been and trusted in all that you were doing. The most picturesque, stunning location for our ceremony which surpassed anything that we could have imagined. We are so grateful to everyone at The Gardens for making our dream wedding a reality and for giving us so many beautiful memories to treasure…and now we just want to do it all over again!

We couldnt recommend this venue enough
Venue Service

By Sammi and Luke, on 18 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 24 Sep 2018

My husband and I got married here on 24.09.18. We don’t have a single bad word to say. From the minute we walked in the venue, we knew it was the one. The venue speaks for itself but the staff were also incredible from the get go. They were in constant contact with us both during the 9 month planning stage. The food is OUTSTANDING and they catered for some odd requests without question. Everything ran without a hitch on the day. Carrie was excellent and the waitresses and bar staff had great humour and were extremely pleasant. Although we knew the hard work that they put into the day, we barely knew they were there. They weren’t intrusive and went above and beyond to help the wedding party and guests. We both want to say thank you to every single person at The Gardens. Down to the personnel who keep the grounds as beautiful as they are. We couldn’t recommend this venue enough and all our guests were blown away by its beauty.

Looks brilliant day and night!
Venue Service

By Jemma and David, on 21 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 14 Sep 2018

The gardens was the perfect venue for our wedding day. We loved the great mix of indoor and outdoor spaces. The guests love the uniqueness of the venue. We wanted to create a more relaxed wedding day playing on our love of festivals and the gardens created a brilliant canvas for us to create our own theme. It looks brilliant day and night. We decided to have a BBQ which was delicious and the guests were very complementary about the food. The staff at the gardens offered a very high level of customer service and ensured the day went without a hitch. They were a pleasure to deal with and always happy and smiling.

The perfect venue!

Dream wedding day come true!
Venue Service

By Jenni & Richard, on 21 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 14 Aug 2018

From the moment we visited The Gardens we fell in love with the relaxed and beautiful setting. It really didn’t disappoint, and on a gorgeous sunny day in August our dream wedding day came 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

Venue Service

By Demi & Kieran, on 18 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Aug 2018

I can’t describe how perfect our wedding day was. All of guests loved the wedding venue and couldn’t stop talking about it. The whole team at the gardens couldn’t of made our day any better, it was so relaxed, everything ran so smoothly and I constantly talk about wanting to my wedding day all over again. I don’t know when the feeling of doing it all over again will stop as it was truly the best day ever. A massive Thank you to everyone at the gardens

The perfect setting for our beautiful day
Venue Service

By Laura and Matt, on 18 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 19 Jul 2018

Wow, where do I start!? We knew we wanted to get married here as soon as we pulled up on the drive. It had the relaxed vibe we were looking for but the ‘wow factor’ too...and it really didn’t disappoint on the day. All of the staff were incredibly professional and nothing was too much trouble. But even more than that, it felt like they were part of your day and like they really cared. The food was also incredible!! I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Thank you for providing the perfect setting for our beautiful day

The most wonderful day!
Venue Service

By Louise and Michael, on 21 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 11 Jul 2018

The gardens was an amazing venue to get married in. I just wanted to say that the whole team at the venue from the Chef, bar staff, managers were amazing. Such a fantastic team. I had the most wonderful day and so did everyone else who joined us there. Thank you everyone for all your hard work

We got married at The Gardens at the start of June and it really was everything we could have hoped for and more! The venue is perfect, the staff are amazing and the food was incredible. When we were originally venue hunting, we didn’t find anywhere that provided the flexibility that The Gardens does – they really want you to have everything exactly as you want it, while also providing a package including catering, dj, etc, that makes the planning so much less stressful! Thank you so much to Carrie and all the team for all of your hard work on the day, we really did have the best time ever thanks to all of you and The Gardens will forever be a special place to us!
