What makes Tilgate Park special is its 200 acres of rural bliss that acts as a spectacular backdrop of natural décor and landscape for your big day. The changing seasons all have something to offer here, from vibrant azaleas in spring to gardens in full bloom in the summer. A natural bed of confetti from fallen autumn leaves and sparkling frost forming on the trees in the winter, all means you’re blessed with stunning scenery whatever the time of year. There’s even a golf course on site, while adrenaline seekers can enjoy tree-top adventures and forest segways provided by Go Ape. Plus, can you image saying “I do” with a nature centre and maze on your doorstep? Who else can boast meerkats in their wedding photographs?
Ceremonies take place in the Wedding Garden with space for 100 loved ones. As you step into this walled garden, the aisle leads you into what feels like a secret space, where you’re surrounded by shrubs and flower beds, luscious green lawns and a characterful wooden arbour.
The Barn offers space for 80 seated and 100 standing guests to witness you say your vows. It’s a versatile space and the perfect solution if the weather is less favourable. It can also play host to your celebrations with 80 seated and 150 standing with the additional enclosed garden. It’s equipped with tables, chairs, a kitchenette and its own toilet facilities.
A 40-metre long pergola adorned in wisteria, roses, clematis and grape vines leads you through to the Arena for your wedding breakfast and evening reception, where you can be joined by 150-200 loved ones. Here, you’ll find the venue’s large marquee, fully-lined with ivory drapes and lit by chandeliers and hundreds of fairylights. The area around it measures more than 1,000 square metres, so there’s ample room for even more entertainment like giant garden games and a mobile bar or caterer.
When it comes to dining, you can book a spit roast from The Walled Garden Café, an American-themed meal from Smith and Western restaurant or an all-vegan menu from the new Lakeside Café. That being said, you’re still welcome to bring your own caterer in if you prefer.
