The Gardens

Enchanting gardens, brimming with English charm

Our traditional English gardens will play a pivotal role in the making of your wedding day. The immaculately kept gardens and lawns of the estate will act as your own private sanctuary, providing a picturesque background for your wedding photographs.

Your wedding party will be treated to a slice of the continent when they step through to our Italian walled garden, where sipping on a glass of Prosecco is almost mandatory. Here, surrounded by intricate statues and an elegant fountain, they’ll find the marquee in which to enjoy both the wedding breakfast and evening entertainment.

Our History

The Pavilion

It’s the little things that matter most

Set in the centre of our opulent gardens, our breathtaking pavilion provides the perfect romantic setting for your ceremony.

At Parley Manor, we appreciate the importance of the small details on your wedding day. Imagine being welcomed down the aisle by twinkling candles, with delicate rose petals lining the way. In the heat of a summer’s afternoon, the sides of the pavilion can be rolled up, enabling you and up to 150 guests to take in your stunning surroundings.

Your Ceremony

The Italian Walled Garden

A little taste of Italy

Our Italian walled garden is undoubtedly our worst kept secret, and yet still an area of absolute tranquillity. The garden is a meticulously maintained haven, which will transport you to another era.

Adorned with outdoor seating and garden furniture, our walled garden is the ideal place to relax with a glass of something sparkling on a warm summer’s evening.

Your Reception

The Marquee

An enchanted starlight canopy

Both your wedding breakfast and evening entertainment can be enjoyed in our luxurious marquee. The marquee can accommodate up to 150 seated guests, and up to 200 guests for your evening reception

The marquee has luxurious ivory drapes, making it the perfect blank canvas for any and all decorations that you have in mind. The canopy itself is lit, meaning you can dance the night away under the stars.
