Plan a Wedding or Event

Update on weddings at the Gardens

We'd like to clarify our earlier post regarding cancelations and rescheduling. We are very hopeful and still plan that we will be seeing our couples in August and September! To keep you all informed, we wanted to let you know that we are awaiting a response on whether we will be continuing to operate under that assumption from administration.  So far, we have rescheduled April, May, June and July weddings.  We understand that planning a wedding can be hard work in normal times, so we want to always be as transparent as possible. Especially so, with our July and beyond clients to avoid last-minute rescheduling.  During these ever-changing times, we want to work with our clients as much as possible to create lasting memories, even if the memories are made on a different date. We will stay in touch with updated information as the situation evolves. Feel free to reach out to us if you have specific questions about your rental at Or, if you have had to cancel at another venue, feel free reach out and let’s see if we can put you in our books for next year! We are here for you, and we will get through this together!
