About The Secret Garden

The Garden of England is a fine spot for a wedding, particularly if you’re able to secure a venue like The Secret Garden. Located just a few miles southeast of Ashford, this charming wedding venue on the old Braebourn estate has it all, from beautifully romantic spaces for ceremonies and/or receptions, to excellent food and drinks packages and friendly, helpful staff. Its excellent location means that it feels secluded, while still being easily accessible by car, while its surroundings are lush, tranquil and picturesque.

The Secret Garden boasts five different spaces for wedding ceremonies, so whether you’ve got your heart set on saying ‘I do’ surrounded by ancient apple trees, or prefer to exchange your vows in a chapel, the events team will make it happen for you. Or perhaps you want the best of both, in which case The Glass House, with its glass canopy roof, is the ideal spot. This option is great for those who want to celebrate their whole day in one place, but The Secret Garden also caters to couples looking to hire the venue for their reception, wedding breakfast and evening party after holding their ceremony elsewhere.

The Coach House offers a beautiful setting for wedding receptions of up to 80 guests, with space for an additional 40 guests in the evening. Featuring large French doors that open on to the south-facing terrace and walled Victorian gardens, it’s an idea setting for seated lunches and dinners. Or perhaps you’d prefer the Glass House. Adjacent to the main coach house, this spot was once a Victorian vine room which produced grapes for the main house, but is now an intimate private dining area with the capacity to seat up to 26 guests.

As well as beautiful interiors, the Secret Garden possesses stunning grounds with plenty of gorgeous spots for photos. With a network of gravel paths, box hedging, lawns and ancient espalier fruit trees, it’s ideal for playing games, socialising or just admiring the beautiful landscape.

Another great thing about the Secret Garden wedding venue is its clear pricing. Check out its brochure for full details of menus, which include (but aren’t limited to) Champagne high tea, feasting menus and posh barbecues, all served on vintage china, plus details of all spaces and what’s included in each hire package.
