Your wedding can either be held in the Rock Garden , or in the Hulme Conservatory, with its sweeping views across the Gardens.

As well as the actual wedding, the Hulme Conservatory or the picturesque Picnic Lawns are ideal for a drinks reception, wedding breakfast and evening reception. Ness is licensed for parties until 12am.

Rock Garden ceremonies

Rock Garden

You will enter the Gardens from the VIP car park and cross the sandstone bridge to join your guests, assembled waiting for you in the lovely Rock Garden. The wedding will take place in the thatched Summer House next to the lily pond, then while you are having your pictures taken, the Ness caterers Mosaic can provide delicious canapés and drinks for your guests. 

Weddings in the Rock Garden can accommodate up to 100 standing guests. (We can provide chairs for any guests who may need a seat during the 20 minute ceremony).


Hulme Conservatory ceremonies

Hulme Room

The Hulme Conservatory offers a perfect alternative to an outdoor ceremony and is a popular choice for winter weddings. If you choose an outdoor wedding, the Hulme Room Conservatory is automatically booked as well, so we always have a lovely "plan B" in the unlikely event the weather is not on our side on the day.  We provide the chairs, linen for the ceremony table, planters for either side of the Registrar's table, plus a pretty heart decoration under which you can be photographed.

The Hulme Conservatory is licensed to seat 100 guests.
