About Wakehurst Place wedding venue

Located in West Sussex, Wakehurst Place is a beautiful 180 acre country estate and conservation area managed by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

Within its magnificent grounds is the stunning Elizabethan Mansion, which is an ideal venue for stylish wedding ceremonies and receptions. The light and airy Gallery and opulent, wood-paneled Dining Room are licensed for both Marriages and Civil Partnerships. The rooms can accommodate from 2 to 80 guests for a ceremony, up to 130 for seated dining or 180 for a standing reception and open onto a formal lawn overlooking the Mansion Lake, which presents an outstanding opportunity for both romantic and group photographs. The lawns can be used for drinks receptions on arrival or between ceremony and wedding breakfast, and the venue is licensed for both music and dancing.
