The Kingsmills offers a choice of stunning wedding venues, providing a spectacular setting for your special day.

1. Gardens weddings and special romantic wedding themes

“Our al fresco garden weddings are extremely popular wedding settings.” says our lovely wedding planner Aileen Tuckwood. “Saying “I Do” in our stunning hotel gardens, beautifully landscaped with patio areas for drinks receptions afterwards, cannot be surpassed.”

With four acres of landscaped gardens at the Kingsmills Hotel, you’re spoilt when choosing the perfect setting for your garden wedding. In the summer, colourful, fragrant blooms provide natural decorations for your ceremony, and you can have the complete ceremony outside.

Alternatively, why not enjoy a glass of Prosecco with guests in the garden before celebrating in one of our indoor wedding venues.

We have had the best time and we are so glad we chose the Kingsmills for our wedding. All the small details and our room for the night were so special.
