As soon as we walked into the Temple of Minerva - we loved it!
It was absolutely perfect for our intimate wedding. We visited the Temple in July and October as our wedding was in December and the gardens through all seasons are absolutely beautiful! Jenny was very helpful with everything, she was always at the end of an email or phone as our wedding was planned long distance

We had the most perfect day celebrating our wedding at the Botanical Gardens
Jenny and Lucy were exceptional at liaising with us throughout the planning process and making sure our day was exactly as we wanted. We feel so lucky to have been able to invite our family to celebrate in such a special place. Thank you so much!

Hayley & Jenny made us feel special
"Hayley and Jenny made us feel special and helped out on the day with the preparations. As Ed is a full time wheelchair user we also had to consider accessibility and the Temple of Minerva is perfect for this as it has wheelchair access and the gardens are all accessible too”

Getting marries there was an absolute dream!
“The Botanical Gardens were a special place already but being able to get married there was an absolute dream! The venue is beautiful, the gardens in the sunshine on the day were more than we could of hoped for and everyone commented on what a beautiful and relaxed setting it was!"

We really felt fully supported but equally left to our own devices!
"The flexibility and freedom to bespoke-create our own party was the biggest draw to the venue for us and the co-ordinator was fantastic at facilitating this, as well as providing guidance and advice when needed. We really felt fully supported but equally left to our own devices! The help given on the day was second to none and we can't thank Jenny enough for busying herself behind the scenes and making the whole day run smoothly."
