The Secret Walled Garden at Wasing looks just like you'd picture it - red brick walls with roses climbing across them and lavender-lined paths.


The secluded rustic folly is licensed for outdoor I dos and how you use the rest of the gardens is, refreshingly, up to you as they are all yours for your big day. There's a quaint cottage - the Bothy - to steal away to for your first night.

At the centre of the 4,000-acre Wasing estate, Wasing Park has all the charm of a centuries-old venue with the sleek style and flexibility of a modern space (a state-of-the-art mood lighting system, sliding glass doors for summer and under-floor heating for chillier evenings). And now you can also say 'I do' in the Victorian Summerhouse.
