Other Events


My Son held his wedding here on 4th October 2019. I couldnt have imagined a more perfect setting. It was stunning! Eden Gardens is quirky and full of character. Super comfortable, clean rooms, beautifully well maintained gardens, a perfect, romantic setting. The wedding room was beautifully set out, tables were decorated with crisp white linen and stunning flowers arrangements and candles. We had very comfy chairs with white linen covers and huge bows to match the bridesmaids dresses. So so beautiful and so romantic! The food was delicious, plentiful and HOT! The staff were absolutely brilliant. They were attentive to our needs and incredibly friendly and super efficient. Really was a perfect day in every sense of the word. At breakfast they pulled out all the stops for us again. We had a fantastic breakfast, very tasty, plenty of it and more if we wanted! The whole wedding really was an absolutely incredibly beautifully romantic experience and I would recommend the Eden Gardens to everyone looking for the perfect wedding venue! A perfect start to a happy life together for my wonderful Son and his beautiful Bride.
Thank you to the lovely Tina and all staff at the Eden Gardens for making this the most special of occasions and one of the happiest days of my life!
