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. It was clear that it was their main aim to make sure everything went smoothly and ‘just right’. 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 the team 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!
From the moment we walked into The Gardens, 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 our nine months of planning. The food is OUTSTANDING and they catered for some odd requests without question. Everything ran without a hitch on the day. They went above and beyond to help our wedding party and guests. We both want to say thank you to every single person at The Gardens. We couldn’t recommend the venue enough and all our guests were blown away by its beauty.
The Gardens was the perfect venue for our wedding day. We loved the great mix of indoor and outdoor spaces. The guests loved 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.
We had the wedding day of our dreams at The Gardens. It’s a stunning venue with an exceptional team who helped us every step of the way. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the epitome of the English Kent countryside. It’s absolutely perfect with so many photo opportunities. The grounds and tipis looked magical when the sun set, with lots of twinkles and festoon lighting. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we had the perfect day. We couldn’t have done without our incredible event planner. The bar service was quick and efficient - which our guests definitely appreciated! And the chef did a fantastic job with the food, we received endless compliments on the quality and quantity of it. Our day was absolute perfection from start to finish, thank you all so much.
I can’t describe how perfect our wedding at The Gardens was. All of guests loved the wedding venue and couldn’t stop talking about it. The whole team couldn’t have made our day any better, it was so relaxed, everything ran so smoothly and I constantly talk about wanting to re-live my wedding day all over again. It was truly the best day ever.
