Celebrate your wedding in the spectacular yet understated, tranquil beauty of the Chelsea Physic Garden.

Available for exclusive private hire on Saturdays and on weekday evenings, this outstanding and adaptable venue offers any number of décor and theme possibilities.

Exclusive hire means guests are most welcome to explore the pathways and peripheries. Discover idyllic photographic backdrops amidst its collection of over 5000 rare, beautiful and botanically significant, plants.

The Garden is an outdoor botanic venue with optional marquee hire. The venue is ‘dry hire’ so clients can select from a wide range of accredited suppliers to create their dream wedding. The Wedding Ceremony Room is available for blessings and humanist ceremonies elsewhere in the Garden warmly welcomed.

We are delighted to say that Saturdays and Weekdays are now fully booked between June 2021 and September 2021.
