The Grotto & Fernery and the Swiss Cottage are both licensed for wedding ceremonies. Ornate bridges, ponds and rustic buildings are dotted around the nine-acre garden, offering a range of opportunities to take beautiful and memorable photographs of your day.

The garden has a romantic, intimate feel and it is thought that Colonel Frank Shuttleworth and his young bride Dorothy spent a great deal of time here during their courtship. Peacocks, ducks and other wildlife are resident in the garden throughout the year, along with a range of interesting trees and plants.

Ceremonies for up to 70 guests can be hosted within the garden. Arrangements can also be made for a drinks and canapé reception on the east lawn.
