About Wakehurst

Wakehurst in Sussex is an idyllic setting for you to celebrate your wedding with your loved ones. 

 

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.

 

Alternatively, our perfectly groomed Croquet lawn is the ideal foundation for a marquee.  With the capacity to seat up to 200 guests the setting is quintessentially charming.  With a range of marquees available from our exclusive suppliers we will be delighted to liaise with you on your individual requirements and design a bespoke package to cater for your exact needs and dreams.

 

Our dedicated in-house caterers, Graysons, have creativity, quality of food, and excellent service at the heart of everything they do.  Their passion to inspire and deliver exceptional events will make your experience at Wakehurst a truly memorable one.  Whether a formal sit-down wedding breakfast or something more relaxed and informal, Graysons will work with you to individually tailor a wedding that reflects you as a couple.  Whether its Pimms on the lawns and garden games or Mulled wine and mince pies, we can celebrate with you whatever the season.

    Our whole experience at wakehurst was exceptional.

    Our whole experience at wakehurst was exceptional. From first enquiry right up to our most wonderful wedding day, nothing was too much trouble and we felt so reassured knowing that we were in very safe hands on the day.

    Beautiful location, great service, wonderful day

    I fell in love with Wakehurst place when we first went to see it. I knew straight away this was going to be the place I was going to get married in, so much so I actually started to cry. It truly was perfect. The service I received from Katie and Caroline during the run up to the wedding was second to none. They were both very attentive and extremely supportive. We had to make a few changes here and there and they were both so helpful I really was impressed. Katie took all the stress out of the organising and on the day made sure everything ran smoothly (so much so that one of my guests thought I'd hired her as a personal wedding planner!). I have to make a special mention of the food - it was excellent, really was superb and again on the day when we had a few of the little guests not eating (my 18 month old niece) they happily accommodated her requests! During the wedding the staff were really helpful to all the guests including clearing up after the little ones ! I highly recommend Wakehurst place for a picture perfect venue, great service and excellent food. I will always go back there for visits as it has a special place in my heart.
