The Secret Garden in Ashford is one of my favourite wedding venues to photograph. The Secret Garden has a beautiful walled garden and is a great place to hold a wedding. It’s situated on the the Mersham Hatch Estate near Ashford in Kent.

The walled gardens incorporates a large kitchen garden where seasonal fruit, vegetables, & flowers are grown. The garden also has a network of gravel paths and fruit trees. The main lawn holds a small marquee that is used in summer months. All of The Secret Garden’s food is made on the premises and here are some of their most popular options for weddings: Champagne High Tea, Hog Roast & Seasonal Salads, Luxury Picnics, Canapés & Champagne, Garden BBQ, Sit down A la carte meals. Here are some of my weddings I’ve photographed at The Secret Garden.

Paul & Clare’s Wedding

Paul and Clare had an intimate wedding of 17 people in the glasshouse at The Secret Garden. I’d always wanted to photograph a wedding in the glasshouse and this wedding was filled with games, great decor and laughter.

Tom & Amy’s Wedding

Tom & Amy got married on the hottest Halloween since records began. The whole day at The Secret Garden was filled with beautiful golden light. They had pumpkins, apple bobbing games and Tom made wooden table place numbers himself.

Jim & Louise’s Wedding

Jim & Louise's Wedding at The Secret Garden

Jim & Louise got married at The Secret Garden on the outskirts of Ashford in August. The couple are based in Glasgow but have family down in Kent so there were lots of Scots that travelled all the way down just for the wedding. This was defiantly one of the friendliest weddings I’ve shot. Everyone was lovely and chatty! Jim and Louise put a lot of thought into the day and planned everything from decor to the picnic that everyone had as a wedding breakfast. Click here to see more pictures.
