The Secret Garden is easily one of Kent’s most romantic and picturesque venues, it’s a passionately run family business with a talented team who are dedicated to making sure wedding couples have their perfect day. Based on the original Mersham le Hatch estate its stunning historic surroundings provide a perfect and secluded escape for weddings. For a start there are endless photo opportunities to suit couples of all tastes and styles from the stunning wild flower gardens and Shepard’s hut to the cobbled courtyards, old archways and clock tower. This venue is a dream for photographers as well as couples!
The Secret Garden offers a variety of fully licensed ceremony spaces including the beautiful Gazebo located in the heart of the Gardens, the historic and elegant chapel which is perfect for weddings no matter what time of year or weather and the Glasshouse which is the best of the outdoors inside and is the perfect space for smaller and more intimate weddings.
As well as the gorgeous settings the Secret Garden has an incredibly talent team including dedicated servers, highly talented and knowledgeable wedding coordinators and world class chefs who pride themselves on using Kent’s finest and locally sourced fresh produce. The options for catering at weddings here are endless and bespoke menus can even be arranged for couples who are looking for something really special.
