The Secret Garden

Something Different

The Secret Garden is easily one of Kent’s most romantic and picturesque venues, it’s a passionately run family business with a talented team who are dedicated to making sure wedding couples have their perfect day. Based in the original Mersham le Hatch estate, its stunning historic surroundings provide a perfect and secluded escape for weddings. There are endless photo opportunities to suit couples of all tastes and styles - from the stunning relaxed and rustic Wild Flower Gardens and Shepard’s Hut to the historic and elegant Cobbled Courtyards, Old Archways and Clock Tower. This venue is a dream for photographers as well as couples!

The Secret Garden offers a variety of fully licensed ceremony spaces, including the beautiful Gazebo located in the heart of the Gardens, the historic and elegant Chapel which is perfect for weddings in all seasons or weather and the Glasshouse which is the best of the outdoors inside and is the perfect space for smaller and more intimate weddings.

As well as the gorgeous settings, the Secret Garden has an incredibly talented team including dedicated servers, highly talented and knowledgeable wedding coordinators and world class chefs who pride themselves on using Kent’s finest and locally sourced fresh produce. We even grow our own fruit and vegetables onsite! Whether you're looking for a delicious 3 Course A La Carte, or a more relaxed informal BBQ Wedding Breakfast, the options for catering at Weddings here are endless and bespoke menus can even be arranged for couples who are looking for something really special. You even have an option to arrange external caterers and suppliers but we know the food here will outclass most!

We offer Exclusive Hire as part of our All-Inclusive Packages for all Wedding parties over 30 guests, however we do also offer Non-Exclusive Hire for more intimate celebrations – meaning The Secret Garden is the perfect venue for all wedding parties from 2 guests to 150!
