This Essex estate certainly delivers on the dream for outdoor wedding venues. In fact, choose to tie the knot at Gaynes Park and you unlock the gate to over 1,000 acres on this idyllic private estate.
Celebrate with a blessing in the gardens, or walk down a garden aisle to your ceremony in the Orangery. You could even enjoy the best of both with open-air vows in the open-sided Gather Barn, come rain or shine.

The Pear Tree
Set in the Wiltshire countryside just a few miles from the Cotswolds, The Pear Tree is one of the most romantic outdoor wedding venues. Blending old vineyards and English garden borders with a brand-new Orangery oriented to take in the views, you can enjoy the feeling of being alfresco whatever the weather.

Syrencot was purpose-designed to make the most of the great outdoors. Your ceremony takes place in the heart of the Walled Garden, but it's the inter-connected nature of the spaces that makes Syrencot one of the best garden wedding venues.
That's because from the Walled Garden you reach the party Farmshed, as well as the intimate Pump Room for late-night nibbles. Even when you wake from the bedrooms in Syrencot House the following morning, your views will be wild water meadows or beautifully tended grounds.

Gisburne Park Estate
There aren't many garden wedding venues that you could make your own for an entire week, but at Gisburne Park Estate you can.

Imagine saying 'I do' beneath time-worn stone ruins. That's the promise of ceremonies at Slaugham Place, where the ruined arches of an Elizabeth country house cast a romantic backdrop.
