Wakehurst in Sussex is an idyllic setting for you to celebrate your special day with your loved ones.

Nestled in 500 acres, Kew’s wild botanic gardens will provide you with endless photo opportunities ranging from the picturesque English Walled Garden, temperate woodlands of the world or magical reflections on the lakes.

Steeped in history, our 16th Century Mansion is simply stunning and is sure to impress you and your guests. With views across our sweeping lawns and waterlily pond, you will feel like Lord and Lady of the Estate nestled in this picturesque setting. The Dining Room, Gallery and Library inside the Mansion feature wood panelled walls, ornate fireplaces, and beautiful sculptured ceilings. Creating a grand and historic backdrop to your special day, providing wonderful photo opportunities.

Alternatively, our perfectly groomed Croquet lawn is the ideal foundation for a marquee. With the capacity to seat up to 200 guests the setting is quintessentially charming. With a range of marquees available from our exclusive suppliers we will be delighted to liaise with you on your individual requirements and design a bespoke package to cater for your exact needs and dreams.

Their passion to inspire and deliver exceptional events will make your experience at Wakehurst a truly memorable one. Whether a formal sit-down wedding breakfast or something more relaxed and informal, Graysons will work with you to individually tailor a wedding that reflects you as a couple. Whether its Pimms on the lawns and garden games or Mulled wine and mince pies, we can celebrate with you whatever the season.
