Lush gardens, stately architecture, and a touch of aristocratic grace await…

Garden Wedding Venues

Beaulieu Garden – A private, family-owned estate with a prestigious history as one of the oldest premium quality wine-producing vineyards in the region, welcoming the likes of Eleanor Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, Walt Disney, the Rockefellers, Princess Grace Patricia Kelly of Monaco and more. It’s also been the home of culinary collaborations with luminaries like James Beard and Julia Child. Today, it is managed by Paula LeDuc Fine Catering & Events, California’s leading culinary, event design and production house with a 40+ year legacy.

Glenstone Gardens – Another private, family-owned estate that’s not readily available to the public or even found on Google Maps, yet is just a stone’s throw away from the nation’s capital for discerning clientele who’ve been vetted and approved. Much like true royalty, those who get to enjoy this property will experience the rarified regality of old English pastimes and countryside pursuits from foxhunting to pheasants walking around the property to a treasured art collection.

Domaine des Etangs – Auberge’s newest European escape is a serene stone château set on 2,500 forested acres. Built over 700 years ago by the knights of Chasteignier de la Roche-Posay, this storybook castle offers a retreat devoted to French country living and art. Resting near tranquil ponds at Domaine des Etangs, its farmhouse cottages overlook rolling hills where Limousin cattle graze. Gardens supply food, art complements nature, embodying the equilibrium symbolized by the Domaine’s dragonfly emblem.

Château de Villette – Just 40 minutes outside the iconic city of romance, this setback French chateau evokes warm, romantic energy, and an homage to the decades of stories that have been told there as a historical landmark with gardens designed by the same designer who manicured Versaille.

Ballyfin Demesne – An intimate, European countryside venue that’s set away from the spotlight and reminiscent of fairytale folklore. Perfect for a barefoot bride, ethereal flower halos, and soft colors… likely to inspire the next promenade setting.

Somerley House – An awe-inspiring Stately Home in Hampshire that was an actual shoot location for both Bridgerton and The Crown. This property offers elegant accommodations and 7,000 acres of possibilities, including its walled garden and formal gardens.
