We both wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help in making our wedding such an enjoyable & special occasion.
You were a fantastic help and we were so happy with the whole day - we will definitely be spreading the word about how great the Winter Gardens is.

We arrived at The Winter Gardens after being married in a local Church. We walked over the bridge by the pond area and enjoyed our drinks reception outside, (as it was warm) on the terrace. The dining room looked more beautiful than we expected it to, and everyone commented on how wonderful the food was.
As our evening guests arrived the entertainment started, the hog roast buffet was perfect outside and the softly lit terrace alongside the pond gave a warm Mediterranean feel.

I had wanted to get married in the Winter Gardens since I was a little girl so when the proposal came, it was top of my list as a venue choice.
We wanted a late afternoon service followed by a BBQ & party with some outside space if possible. The Events Manager (Jim McQuarrie) took all of our requirements into consideration and recommended using the lovely Grove Suite for the service and the Garden Bar for the party and also allocated a large section of the outside space by the lily pond for our exclusive use.
Jim ensured that everything about the process went smoothly keeping us up to date as necessary. Being a bit fussy, we had some ideas on food and he liaised with the catering manager who then came up with a selection of menus. We were able to pick and choose from these to get exactly what we wanted.
Our wedding day could not have gone better. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were very attentive but not intrusive and they made us & our guests feel very welcome. Bryan (the bar manager) and his team did an amazing job keeping the guests well fed and watered and he checked in with us from time to time to make sure we had everything we needed, which of course, we did.
The BBQ was cooked out on the terrace in full view of our guests and the quality was outstanding. According to many of our family, it was the best food they’d ever had at a wedding.
If you want a very special wedding venue (and who doesn’t?) in a fantastic location, in our opinion, you won’t do any better than the Winter Gardens. The service we received from start to finish was highly professional, personal & friendly. We can’t fault it.
To everyone at the Winter Gardens, thank you for making our wedding day absolutely perfect.

I had my wedding ceremony in the Grove Suite at the Winter Gardens and afterwards held my reception in the Vineyard Restaurant.
The whole event from start to finish was flawless. It was very well organised and everything flowed smoothly, from the ceremony, to the photographs in the ballroom and outside pond area, to the reception welcome drinks and the wedding breakfast itself. Nothing was left to chance and the attention to detail was second to none, right down to the tableware, linen and chair covers.
The staff were friendly, efficient and unobtrusive, and the quality of the food was excellent. Everyone who attended commented that it was a thoroughly enjoyable day, and some of the best food they had ever had at a wedding breakfast.
My overall experience was absolutely wonderful, and I would put most of this down to the professionalism of the staff involved in the organisation of my wedding day itself. I would not hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone who was interested in having their wedding at the Winter Gardens.
I would just like to thank you all for your hard work that made our wedding day a very memorable one, everything was superb.
George & Kristina.
