Information about the venue
So, you’re getting married? Congratulations! You’re obviously in love with your partner, but if you also love gardens, then Nymans Gardens near Hayward Heath in West Sussex would be the perfect location for your special day. Easily accessible from London and Brighton, Nymans Gardens and house are run by the National Trust. The dramatic architecture of the house is part Regency, part pseudo-medieval and now part ruin following a fire seventy years ago, and serves as a splendid backdrop for your romantic wedding photographs.
But it’s the magnificent gardens with their vibrant and flamboyant mixture of flowers, shrubs and trees that are the stars of the show (apart from yourselves, of course!) Everywhere you look, you’ll be overwhelmed by the choice of stunning settings for your memorable wedding pictures. In the springtime, the display of bulbs are magnificent, whilst during the summer and autumn months, an array of herbaceous perennials line the borders and provide a beautiful background throughout the year. Furthermore, you and your guests are free to wander along the footpaths into the shady woods and discover the large variety of plants and wildlife to be found there.
There are so many unique locations for photo opportunities here at Nymans. The serene walled gardens lead onto rolling meadows, and narrow paths deliver long views of formal topiary and clipped lawns. Alternatively, there are dramatic backdrops featuring sculptures, fountains and exposed stonework, or the formal rose and knot gardens surrounded by evergreen hedges. In the middle of it all is an impressive marble Verona fountain.
The Italian-style Loggia, licensed for weddings and civil ceremonies, is a gothic building with roses clad arches. Set within the Sunk Garden and containing striking floral displays, intimate ceremonies of 30 guests can take place here or, for larger weddings, an unlimited number of additional guests can be seated in front on the secluded lawns. Alternatively, champagne can be served here after the ceremony, before you and your guests make their way through the gardens to a hill top meadow, where a large marquee reception can be held. Your wedding photographs can be taken anywhere in the garden, and you’ll certainly be ensured of a day to remember. Your selection of stunning photographs will bring back many happy memories for years to come of a wonderful day spent with friends and family. For a unique romantic setting, choose Nymans Gardens. The place will take your breath away.
