Welcome to The Gardens, a luxury country garden wedding venue in Kent, where vows are made surrounded by blooms and birdsong. Located in the quaint village of Yalding, The Gardens is a horticultural masterpiece with 12 acres of grounds divided into 16 landscaped gardens. Family owned, with weddings run by the exceptional team at Glow Events, The Gardens is deeply loved – you’ll feel it from the moment you arrive.
Exclusively yours for your wedding, enjoy a choice of three stunning ceremony locations. From the rustic gazebo with panoramic garden views to our two indoor ceremony areas in the barn, create your dream day with expert support every step of the way. After your ceremony, you’ll love the quintessentially English photo opportunities that can be found at every twist and turn. Think tumbling vines, whimsical forests, and our grand Victorian greenhouse donated by Prince Charles in the 1990s.
The bespoke Nordic tipis adjoining the barn provide the perfect location for your unforgettable wedding breakfast. Draped in fairylights and warmed with fire pits, you’ll enjoy an exceptional, locally sourced menu designed in partnership with our talented in-house catering team. As the sun sets and The Gardens transforms into a twilight oasis with endless festoon lights, you can dance the night away in the barn with your guests.

“From the moment we arrived at The Gardens, we knew it was the one. The venue speaks for itself but the team was incredible from the get-go. They were in constant contact with us both during our 9-month planning stage. The food was OUTSTANDING and everything ran without a hitch on the day. We couldn’t recommend The Gardens enough and all of our guests were blown away.”
