The Setting

The Secret Garden is a captivating and elegant venue and is the perfect place to hold a wedding ceremony and reception. Inside and out, the Secret Garden is one of Kent’s most romantic settings and their beautiful gardens truly speak for themselves. They are situated on the beautiful Mersham Le Hatch Estate, offering a peaceful and rural location with the flexibility for couples to create their dream day.

The Vibe

Their main Coach House was once the home to the estates horses and carriages and once you enter their cobbled courtyard the reason for the name will become apparent. Lovingly restored in 2006, the main Coach House offers a warm, romantic setting with large double doors that open onto the south facing undercover terrace that overlooks their lovely walled gardens.

The Chapel is their newest room and is their main in-door Ceremony room (just in case of bad weather) and can also be used as an undercover area if you cannot use the garden. They also have their Glass House which is a wonderful, unique, more intimate room offering the best of outside dining inside.

The gardens incorporate a large kitchen garden where they grow seasonal fruit, vegetables and flowers. The garden also has a network of gravel paths, box hedging and ancient espalier fruit trees. Their amazing chefs make all of the food from scratch at the Secret Garden and can make bespoke menus for all couples. Popular choices, other than the 3 course à la carte menus, are their champagne high teas, luxury picnics and posh BBQ’s.
