Ventnor Botanic Garden Full Description
Our 22 acres of garden with over 6000 plant, shrub and tree species gives you flexibility to host a wedding ceremony to suit your needs and fantastic photo opportunities for you and your guests. We also have underground Victorian cellars and secret tunnels to the sea. We give you the option to host large celebrations, intimate ceremonies for close family and friends, or even the option of exclusively hiring the whole garden to yourselves. We can help plant some ideas, grow and nurture your plans and then watch the big day blossom into a wondrous spectacle. Getting married outside, for many, is a wedding dream come true. Imagine your wedding ceremony under summer blue skies, engulfed by sights and sounds of New Zealand. Married in an endearing Pavillion, witnessed by your family and friends, surrounded by exotic, rare and beautiful plants - you are imagining the Ventnor Botanic Garden. In addition to our fantastic outdoor space, we have indoor rooms and a restaurant, allowing you to make the most of our unique venue for your special day. There’s no need to worry about the weather, as every wedding has the safety net of our elegant Echium room with floor to ceiling windows that overlook the Mediterranean pond, surrounded by 16ft tall Echium flowers. The balcony doors compliment the sound of the trees, and the trickling water of the Mediterranean pond transports you to another place. There is an abundance of stunning photo opportunities for you and your guests to enjoy, including a Victorian built tunnel leading to the cliff edge, with wonderful sea views to Steephill Cove and beyond.

Perfect wedding
We had an amazing wedding here, we were from the mainland and the communication was pretty good, mostly emails but we did have phone calls aswell and they were really responsive. Antony was brilliant and so accommodating. We did change our guest numbers and they were absolutely fine with it. The food was amazing and the mocktail was divine. It did rain on our day but the view was still so beautiful even in the rain! We got some fabulous pictures especially through the tunnel which we got as much access to as we wanted. Amazing wedding!

Best day ever!
We couldn't have been more delighted with our wedding experience at the Ventnor Botanical Garden. Not only was the venue incredibly beautiful, but the wedding team led by Antony, made the event a pleasure to organize, even from our hometown of Sydney (Australia!) In particular, Antony went out of his way to ensure we all had the most perfect day. He was so relaxed about everything, which enables us to relax and enjoy our day. Additionally access and management of suppliers was straightforward and we had plenty of time in advance of the event to decorate the marquee and gardens as we wanted. Could not recommend more highly. Thank you Antony and team. We had the very best day!

Picture Perfect Day
We had the best day for our wedding, the weather was gorgeous and the gardens were just amazing. We had a ‘garden party’ vibe for the day and it was just so easy and relaxed. No stresses on the day and all the staff were so helpful and on hand for everything.

Incredible venue, completely unique.
I am a supplier, I have DJ'd at many venues across the island. VBG has always been one of my favourites. The way it is set up it feels like you are in a hidden garden away from the rest of the world. No other venue can offer this unique experience. Although I rarely speak in depth to the staff and management, I have always heard fantastic things from the happy couple. I cant wait for my next event here.

Fantastic day at a beautiful venue!
When my partner and I visited Ventnor Botanic Gardens as a potential venue for our wedding, we immediately fell in love with the place. The gardens themselves are beautiful, and it was wonderful to be able to hold the ceremony outside followed by a drinks reception in a garden full of palm trees. There is even a tunnel out to the cliffs to get some dramatic photos against the sea. The whole day can be tailor-made to exactly the wedding you want. We wanted a small wedding, so were able to hire the restaurant (which seats 56 people) for the evening reception. For those who want a larger wedding, there is the option of hiring a marquee. There is a wide range of options for food, from three course meals to BBQs to buffets. We requested a custom menu of vegan sharing platters, expecting this to be expensive or too much trouble for the chef, but it was neither! The chef, Michael, delivered a fantastic spread, everything so delicious and more than we could have imagined. During the year of planning there was a little disruption at Ventnor - the wedding co-ordinators changed twice and the chef changed once. This did not impact our planning or our day though, as everything was handed over seamlessly and the day we had hoped for was delivered perfectly. Antony and Darren are absolute stars and dealt with a lot of the finer details behind the scenes - sourcing local beer, organising table linen, setting up the music and moving chairs and tables around between all the different parts of the day. It was absolutely perfect, and if you're looking for an outdoor venue (with backup rooms in case of rain) that will look after you throughout the whole process and cater for your exact requests, this is the place to go!
