If we take Hampton Lea as the perfect garden wedding venue, but with its own unique difference we already have a starting point. The landscape itself is perfectly groomed and provides you with a blank canvas on which to design your wedding. Huge trees and some unique elements create many photo opportunities.
The venue is run by Vanetia Grandiek and she has extensive experience in delivering a wide range of weddings without any challenges.
Music goes well with creating a wedding atmosphere. You can imagine a string quartet, harpist or perhaps a jazz trio or a couple singing playing as you picnic in the grounds. The options are endless and creates your own unique wedding.
While some couples love the concept of the picnic in the grounds with gorgeous picnic baskets provided by Vanetia's team, others want more of a traditional sit down lunch or buffet. High teas are very popular and a signature of Hampton Lea Gardens and sister business The Tea House at Lincoln.
I personally think a Mr Whippy Truck or a Souvlaki food caravan, wood fired pizza, oh so many gorgeous options to consider, and again, give you, your unique signature. Hampton Lea Gardens lends itself to these many options.
Hampton Lea is available until 8.00pm and available from spring to through to autumn.
Along with Hampton Lea there is also available the gorgeous Tea House located in the Lincoln township which is only a short distance away. The Tea House has its own unique charm, with ornate wallpaper, chandeliers and beautiful gleaming lead-light windows.
Oh there are so many ways that you can make your unique wedding with your own signature, come together. Make a time to visit with Vanetia and work out what you can do to make Hampton Lea Gardens of The Tea House at Lincoln your special wedding venue.
