Full Description
When booking with Nymans, you can host both your ceremony and post-ceremony drinks & canape reception into the late afternoon with them before moving on for your evening celebrations if you wish. Licensed to hold wedding ceremonies beneath their soaring arches of their Loggia within the Sunk Garden, you can say ‘I do’ to the person you love at an intimate ceremony, surrounded by rose clad walls and beautiful scenery. After your ceremony, you can relax on the lawns with your loved ones and take in the beautiful views while you capture some unforgettable wedding photos. One of the benefits of hosting your wedding ceremony in such a unique location such as Nymans is the flexibility to create a completely bespoke day. Whilst perfect for an intimate affair, you could also potentially have an unlimited number of guests seated in the Sunk Garden's secluded lawns. With your dedicated Wedding Co-ordinator on hand to help you with every step of the way, the limit to a wedding at Nymans really is your imagination. For more information about your wedding at Nymans, please do not hesitate to contact them.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Sophie Sherriff
Hello brides! If you are looking for a picturesque, unique, outdoor venue for your wedding ceremony look no further than Nymans. We are delighted to offer our romantic Loggia for licensed wedding ceremonies and we currently have some good 2019 availability. Our Sunk Garden is the perfect location to hold a drinks and canapé reception after your celebration - before heading off elsewhere for the evening if you wish. Drinks and canapés can be provided by you - or I can recommend a cater.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Every wedding at Nymans is totally unique and therefore it is impossible to choose the best. However, those that are full of personal touches always stick in my mind.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Book your registrar as soon as you've secured your venue. They get booked up years in advance and you want to make sure you can hold your ceremony at the time you wish rather than having to fit around their availability.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

I love a singalong at a wedding! One couple this year asked their guests to sing 'Ain't No Mountain High Enough' as part of their wedding ceremony and it sounded fantastic - and made for a really memorable service.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Floral Unique Outdoors Flexible Stunning

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Impossible to answer! Every few metres there is another stunning location.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Yes but I am sworn to secrecy.

What’s your favourite canapé?

Smoked salmon blini - classic!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?


What is your venue's most unique feature?

Getting married in a National Trust garden means that you can always re-visit the exact spot where you said your vows at any time of the year without the need to make an appointment. I have seen couples return throughout the seasons and enjoy picnics with their children in the place they got married and it is amazing to see.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The flexibility we offer. If you want a ceremony for 20 or 220, we can accommodate you. Want to supply your own canapes? Totally fine. We don't charge a corkage fee for bringing in your own drinks either.
