Blink and you’ll miss it! The Secret River Garden is located behind a lovely old brick wall, against the banks of the River Thames in a lush, wild private garden. With secluded woodland and river views, the gardens spaciously accommodate up to 120 guests and is a deeply romantic setting that transports you back in time and into the heart and soul of English countryside, yet just 20 minutes from Waterloo.
Present your guests with a gorgeous champagne reception canopy on the huge, 90 square metre main lawn overlooking the river, before following the tiny winding path through to the secluded woodland where your stunning marquee is revealed under the dappled light of weeping willows. A bonfire can be lit for later in the evening for guests and family to gather around.
Beautifully styled long wooden tables dressed with moss, ivy and flower petals would work well here but you could also have food stations set up so guests can wander at ease; think about including a BBQ alongside dessert tables groaning with sweet treats such as pavlovas, profiteroles, cheesecakes and eton mess whilst serving drinks topped with edible flowers.
The gardens back straight onto the Thames and as such are tidal and are prone to flooding at certain times of the year. The venue is therefore only available for hire a few times a year so if you’re interested in hosting your own special event here you are advised to book early.
