I just want to say I was absolutely blown away with how you put the wedding together exactly how I envisaged. We really enjoyed our day – the service and the food was spot on we will be back very soon! All my family said what a stunning location and how tasty the food was.
Firstly, thank you SO MUCH for making our wedding day the most amazing day ever! Everyone says they had a wonderful time, especially Sam and I and we can’t take any credit for that at all, it was all you and everyone there at the secret garden. We are so chuffed that we chose the venue, the day was just perfect for us!
Gemma & Sam
A massive and sincere thank you from us both for making our wedding day so wonderfully perfect! It was a very special day for us both and made all the more special by all the staff at the Secret Garden taking such good care of us and all our guests. The tables, garden, music, decorations, flowers, games, ice cream, cake, food, drinks everything was amazing. Everyone had a really great time and there was not one thing we would have done differently. All the guys were attentive, considerate, and happy to make sure everything was perfect. I am gushing on I know, but hard to express enough. Thank you again, and I am sure we will see you soon the next time when we come for tea and lovely cakes!

Our day, it was perfect. From the glorious garden, the beautiful Coach House and Glass House, to the delicious food – the Secret Garden provided us with our dream wedding and perfect start to married life. During the planning and organising, we were living in a different country and dealing with a severe illness that required multiple hospitalisations. The events team were wonderful in handling this difficult situation; regular communication via email and Skype, they were very understanding and flexible. I cannot praise or thank the staff enough. It was truly the perfect day.
David and I would just like to say a massive thank you to you, Stephanie and the rest of the team for making our wedding such a special day. It went so smoothly, everything was as we expected and more. All of our guests commented on how amazing the food was and how friendly the staff were throughout the day, so thank you for all of your hard work.
