Our large 22 acres of garden with over 6000 plant, shrub and tree species gives you flexibility to host a wedding ceremony to suit your needs and fantastic photo opportunities for you and your guests. We also have underground Victorian cellars and secret tunnels to the sea. We give you the option to host large celebrations or intimate ceremonies for close family and friends with the option of exclusively hiring the whole garden to yourselves. We can help plant some ideas, grow and nurture your plans and then watch the big day blossom into a wondrous spectacle.
Getting married outside, for many, is a wedding dream come true. Imagine your wedding ceremony under summer blue skies, engulfed by sights and sounds of New Zealand. Married in an endearing Tennis Hut, witnessed by your family and friends, surrounded by exotic, rare and beautiful plants - you are imagining the Ventnor Botanic Garden.
In addition to our fantastic outdoor space, we have indoor rooms and a restaurant, allowing you to make the most of our unique venue for your special day. There’s no need to worry about the weather, as every wedding has the safety net of our elegant Echium room with floor to ceiling windows that overlook the Mediterranean pond, surrounded by over 50 majestic 16ft tall Echium flowers. The balcony doors compliment the sound of the trees, and the trickling water of the Mediterranean pond transports you to another place.
There is an abundance of stunning photo opportunities for you and your guests to enjoy, including a Victorian built tunnel leading to the cliff edge, with wonderful sea views to Steephill Cove and beyond.
