Nestled in 500 acres, Kew’s wild botanic gardens will provide you with endless photo opportunities ranging from the picturesque English Walled Garden, temperate woodlands of the world or magical reflections on the lakes.
Steeped in history, our 16th Century Mansion is simply stunning and is sure to impress you and your wedding guests. With views across our sweeping lawns and waterlily pond, you will feel like Lord and Lady of the Estate nestled in this picturesque setting. The Dining Room, Gallery and Library inside the Mansion feature wood panelled walls, ornate fireplaces, and beautiful sculptured ceilings. Creating a grand and historic backdrop to your special day, providing wonderful photo opportunities.
