The Breathtaking Surroundings
We’re not exaggerating when we say that Gaynes Park has some of the most incredible gardens and surroundings that we’ve seen at a wedding venue. The trees and flower beds are bursting with rich colours throughout autumn, while a winter wedding is truly magical with a touch of frost or sprinkling of snow. The gardens are more than just pretty to look at, the provide a huge al fresco aisle that starts at the Heart Gate, through the Long Walk and Walled Garden and into The Orangery to tie the knot. It’s the perfect time to reflect on the day and enjoy a peaceful moment with your nearest and dearest, and it’s ideal come rain or shine.
The Beautiful Ceremony Settings
The Orangery is a picturesque place to say ‘I do’, with light pouring in from the glass roof and windows while your guests take their seats under the exposed wooden beams. Set within the idyllic Walled Garden, it boasts charming and peaceful surroundings for a romantic ceremony.
