Magical wedding venue

I couldn't have been more pleased to find out that the Gardens was available for my big day. It is one of my favourite local places and was looking especially gorgeous for our event. Trish and the staff were professional, courteous, organised yet unobtrusive. I would recommend the Historic Gardens for any special event!
