Such a Perfect Day

At The Manor Gardens – Birling Estate

A perfect setting for your Festival, Country Garden or Woodland wedding

It’s hard not to fall in love with The Manor Gardens, a truly romantic spot, hidden within 14 enchanting acres of the wider Birling Estate, a perfect woodland wedding venue.

Owned by the same family since 1435, and nestled within the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Manor Gardens is a secluded garden area which has only recently become available to hire for a small number of wedding blessings, hand fasting ceremonies and wedding receptions each year.

With plenty of space and privacy, The Manor Gardens is the perfect blank canvas for the ultimate country garden or woodland wedding experience. It’s an idyllic setting to celebrate your marriage in the open air, surrounded by nature, and with ample space for you to hire in a tepee, marquee or stretch tent, so you can then continue the celebrations and party under the stars.

Events & Filming

The gardens and wider estate are also a perfect location for other events such as wedding proposals, photo-shoots (including wedding photos), film-nights and our annual village party!
