  • Heather and Andy

    We cannot recommend The Gardens enough. It was the most perfect venue for a relaxed wedding. Our guests were blown away and we loved every minute. The staff are outstanding, the food is incredible and the venue is breath taking

  • Jenni and Richard

    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!

  • Sammi and Luke

    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.

  • Carole and Stuart

    We had a fantastic wedding, it surpassed all our hopes and expectations. The sun shone, the gardens looked stunning and we were able to have the ceremony in the garden as we had planned. All staff in the run up to wedding and on the day worked toward it being special and ensured everything ran smoothly. Many of our guests commented on how good the service and food were and of course the setting. Thank you for helping to make our memories happy. We would highly recommend you, it is the perfect wedding venue. Superb

  • Mr & Mrs Gamm - July 2019

    From the moment I stepped foot into The Gardens I knew it was where I was going to get married. The venue is just so stunning and well kept it was everything I dreamed of. Carrie was the most fantastic wedding coordinator, she kept in contact with me throughout the whole process and answered my 9 million questions so quickly. the wedding day was just perfect all the staff did such an amazing job of setting things up exactly how I wanted them. everything went seamlessly and all the waiters, waitresses and bar staff were fab! The catering was absolutely amazing and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. They delt so well with my "problem guests" and went above and beyond to make sure it didn't impact us or spoil our day. I honestly dont have a bad word to say about anyone. The gardens is a truly stunning venue with the most professional and friendly staff. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

  • Michelle and Andrew Pemble - 07/10/2016

    Autumn is our favourite season of the year so we were looking for a venue with the perfect backdrop for our autumnal wedding, The Gardens provided just that. The ceremony took place in the gazebo surrounded by gardens in their autumn beauty, our guests joined us in the rustic tipis for what they described as the best wedding food they have ever tasted and we danced the night away in the contemporary barn. For us this was the perfect day created by the fantastic team at the Gardens. Thank you for making it everything we dreamed of and more.

  • Natalie and Tim Wright – 27/08/2016

    Tim and I would just like to say a massive thank you for helping us to have the most amazing wedding in August. It surpassed all of our dreams and expectations. Our family and friends were in awe of the Gardens and Tim and I don't think we have ever seen it looking so beautiful!

    From the moment we sent a request to view the gardens you have all been so friendly, supportive and professional, especially with helping a bride who had so many questions!

    Our wedding day itself ran so smoothly and we all had such a fantastic day. Thank you all so much. The Gardens will forever hold a special place in our hearts. We could not recommend it highly enough as the perfect wedding venue.

  • Mr and Mrs Lang – 11/08/2016

    Well where do we begin? Our wedding day at The Gardens is all we could have ever wished for! When we first got engaged we looked at venue after venue but none of them felt right for us. We were looking for something original, intimate and personal and we were over the moon when we found The Gardens. The whole day was perfect from start to finish. We were really well looked after by all the staff and they made sure that our day ran smoothly. Every one of our guest commented on what an amazing venue it was, how delicious the food was and how friendly the staff were. We will always remember our wedding day at The Gardens and I hope that one day we can celebrate there again.
