Welcome to The Wild Garden an enchanting hidden gem which lies in the heart of Sussex, nestled within The Hyde Estate. The Wild Garden is a tranquil and private space, a truly unique wedding venue that can be exclusively yours. Imagine hosting your one-of-a-kind celebration surrounded by ancient woodland, not one but two beautiful lakes and an abundance of meticulously cared for flora and fauna that serves as your backdrop. To maintain the beauty of the setting and unique memories of such a special occasion for those who bring their loved ones here, we only host a limited number of events each year. As a family who have celebrated their own weddings within these majestic surroundings, we know how exceptional The Hyde Estate is and look forward to inviting you to discover the garden for yourself.

"We held our blessing and wedding reception at The Hyde Estate and it is simply the most stunning place. Beautiful surroundings from the lakes, wild gardens to the surrounding woodlands. A real hidden gem!"

Mr & Mrs Davies

History of the Estate

Generations later the current owner’s children both dreamt of hosting their wedding receptions in the gloriously beautiful Wild Garden and so its use as a wedding venue began.

Today there are four generations of the family living here. Their time at Handcross Park began in the 1870s and they added The Hyde to the estate in 1924. Colonel and Mrs Warren then set about carefully planning and constructing the beautiful gardens including The Wild Garden that you see today.

It is too magical to keep to ourselves! Chris Giles Photography

The Wild Garden continues to be a space surrounded by and filled with love which the family want to share with a select number of couples each year.

What to expect On the wedding day, guests will wind their way along our private drive surrounded by ancient woodland before arriving at the shores of the lake to witness your exchange of vows. Following your blessing, or upon arrival if you are hosting your ceremony elsewhere, guests will soak up the natural beauty of the lakes, wild garden and woodland whilst sipping on refreshing drinks and indulging in delicious canapĂŠs. This can be the perfect opportunity for you newlyweds to explore the grounds with your photographer to capture the most romantic wedding portraits. When you have completed your group photographs and couple portraits, guests are called to find their seats for your wedding breakfast. You have the flexibility to create your dream wedding in The Wild Garden, from boho luxury to country chic, elegant glamour to festival fun, your choice of structure and decor is up to you. Weather permitting, the sides of your chosen marquee or tipi can be rolled up to allow you to take in the stunning panoramic views throughout our secluded setting. As darkness falls and the partying begins your choice of lighting can add to the ambience with romantic festoon or fairy light garlands, bright and colourful uplighters or spotlights highlighting our wild gardens and majestic trees. Contact our team now to discuss your wedding ideas.
