Now I am a bit biased on this subject, given my horticultural bent, but I think garden weddings are just the best.
There is something quite magical about saying your “I dos” surrounded by majestic trees, lush foliage and seasonal flowers.
A garden can be the most romantic of settings in which to get married and creates a relaxed and casual feel that puts people at ease so everyone can enjoy the day and look back on it with the fondest of memories.
If you are not religious and do not want to do the church thing then what are the alternatives- a corner or the foyer of the reception venue! Very few reception venues will have an area that will have the atmosphere of an outdoor space in a nice garden.
When you are wanting to create lasting memories the space you hold your ceremony in must be as perfect as possible.
Garden weddings allow you to create a unique character filled scene that can be as simple as the natural beauty of the immediate surroundings or with as little or as much styling and floristry as you want to create an atmosphere that is exactly what you want.
If you are looking for a romantic, rustic, woodland, country or simply natural theme for you wedding, The Secret Garden can provide a space that is just right for your special day. The natural light and beauty of an outdoor wedding is perfect for stunning photography and video. The informal nature of photography in a garden will create beautiful images that you and your family will always treasure.
The Secret Garden has a wonderful array of garden settings, from the wedding gazebo, stunning lake, majestic trees and woodlands to bridges across streams, that will all add to wonderful lasting photographic images.
A garden wedding also allows the ceremony to be intimate regardless of the number of guests. Chairs can be arranged, or people can stand close, to where the ceremony is being conducted therefore not missing any part of the proceedings, making them feel included and ensuring you are surrounded by those nearest and dearest to you.
If this all sounds like the kind of atmosphere and character you are thinking about for your wedding day why not consider an outdoor wedding in The Secret Garden, Wildes Meadow.
