“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.”
