You won’t guess what I am writing about today.
Well you would if you had been to this wedding venue.
I love going to wedding venues that make you feel welcome; are helpful; positive; enthusiastic; amazing organisers.... I could go on but you want to know why I think this!
YES I am talking about the beautifully landscaped, Hampton Lea Gardens. I remember after I had been there for the first time, saying to my Mum, that I had been to this beautiful garden and asking had she ever been to it?
I am sure many people have visited the garden. Many more are going to visit when I finish telling you about this venue. Yes, once you visit the venue, you will go away saying, this is the perfect setting for my wedding.
What you get is a large established garden with huge trees and sprawling manicured lawns surrounding by an amazing sculptured pond. Giant schist stepping stones float above the waterfall and an elegant silver archway extends over the water. I stand on the wedding platform always conscious that as much as the water is beautiful I don’t want to step back and end up in the water. I have not heard of that happening so guess it hasn’t happened.
Vanetia and her Mum run the functions and with the help of Vanetia’s two boys – it is a family affair. They think of the little thinks – directing people to park; a sign welcoming you and directing you to the wedding site; guidance to the bride and wedding party for walking in.
The measure of a great wedding person, is that, if I have confidence that they will run the rehearsal, if I cannot be there for any reason. I have done lots of weddings at Hampton Lea and we enjoy working with each other. I always respect the venue person, in this case Vanetia. She knows what she is doing.
I am going to blog a wedding that I performed there recently that had a picnic and dancing; and another one that was awesome for the singer under the tree and the guests enjoying drinks in the garden; and another that was pouring with rain and we had a beautiful ceremony indoors in a lovely decorated woolshed. Oh so many weddings in this beautiful location that are waiting to be shared.
I love the concept of picnics on the lawn. For some, the High Tea, Garden Party, Cocktail Function or an early dinner, are the couples preferred option. Whatever option you choose, Hampton Lea Gardens will do it justice.
So looking forward to my next wedding in the beautiful gardens at Hampton Lea Gardens.
Want to make it easy for you to book a viewing, as a viewing, leads to a booking.
