From the moment we went to visit The Secret Garden, we knew that was the place we had dreamed of getting married. Pat and her team made sure that every part of our day was perfect. From our ceremony, to the silent disco (which went down a right treat!) the day was even better than we hoped it would be.

We can't thank Pat and The Secret Garden team enough for making our wedding day so special and would encourage anyone imagining a beautiful, fun and unforgettable nuptial to get in touch!

We chose The Secret Garden because we fell in love with the venue straight away. The beautiful gardens, flowers, animals and happy vibes! It was exactly what we were looking for as we wanted to get married in a garden and be surrounded by the outdoors.

Pat was extremely welcoming and down to earth which was refreshing and calming when it comes to wedding planning. The favourite part of the day was the ceremony. The sun was shining and when I first saw Oli and everybody there, It was the best feeling ever. With regards to making arrangements with Rebecca and Pat it was very easy and straight forward. We could go to the venue as many times as we needed before the big day which was great for planning.

The silent disco was a real hit with us and our guests! watching videos back of the evening do are hilarious because everybody is dancing to different music and singing. We had an absolutely beautiful and fantastic wedding day! Thank you so much to The Secret Garden team.

From the moment we visited The Secret Garden we were giddy at the thought of our guests seeing this quirky and beautiful venue. What sealed the deal for us though was meeting Pat. Not only was she accommodating and welcoming, she put our minds at ease and we felt that we trusted her to run our day exactly how we wanted - which can be a big ask!

Our big day was the most perfect day of our lives and we wouldn't change a thing. Many of our family and friends commented on the day itself and afterwards that it was the best wedding they'd been to! The laid back atmosphere and beautiful surroundings played a big part, but the service and running of the day was seamless, I was never worried.

The ceremony itself was magical, the 'big entrance' I made walking from the house into the conservatory was so exciting and I couldn't stop grinning! It was definitely my favourite part of the day and the part I often daydream about.

We fell in love with The Secret Garden as soon as we entered the gates - "just perfect" - we didn't look anywhere else before or after this  There wasn't anywhere else we could imagine getting married.

The relaxed feeling we got from being there followed us all the way through from the preparation to the 'Big Day'.  From start to finish there was no need to panic as everything was in hand. The feedback from the guests themselves after the wedding is impossible to fit in to these few sentences - let's just say there wasn't one complaint and they'd never been to a wedding like it which makes it all worthwhile. My partner was very sceptical about the silent disco at night but it was so funny and different, you can't begin to imagine! If it was possible to relive our special day I wouldn't change a thing.

It sounds cliche but we really did have the most amazing day of our lives. Every brides worst nightmare inevitably happened - rain...but after the ceremony, Pat was dashing about handing ponchos to everyone!

She was so amazing all day, and really just made the day so perfect, nothing was too much bother.

We chose the venue because the garden was just stunning, along with Pat's personality, it just felt right. Both Pat and Rebecca were excellent in helping us plan our day, and sorting random bits out for us. We didn't know how our decorations would look but they were so wonderful. The best part of the day was the silent disco. People still keep telling us how our wedding was the best they'd ever been to, and I believe it was down to the evening do.

We wanted a venue with outdoor space to personalise and make it our own. Pat was always very accommodating. The gardens have scope to do things a bit differently and can cater for small or larger weddings but at the same time has an intimate feel.

One poignant part of our day was when, as newly husband and wife, we were left alone on the larger field and had the opportunity to chat about our day and enjoy the excitement of it all, just us together looking out onto the landscape. It was as though we were the only two people in the world.

In the late evening we all enjoyed a moonlit walk around the gardens with candles and lanterns to light the pathway.

We really wouldn't have wanted our wedding in any other place and Pat and all the staff involved helped create something wonderful and so very special to us - nothing seemed like too much trouble. The gardens really do capture your heart and create memories that will last a lifetime.
