No One Does Garden Weddings Like Wickham Park! Wickham Park’s most unique feature is its many acres of ornamental gardens and two gorgeous and unique wedding and reception sites; the Cabin at Hilltop Garden and the Emerald Room of the Irish Garden.

Wedding Receptions at the Cabin at Hilltop Garden

Gorgeous views abound as you enter the gates and continue the drive to the highest point in the 280 acre Park. Guests arrive, take in the spectacular Hartford skyline, wander the hilltop Cabin Garden or even visit our aviary if they please! After you exchange vows, your guests enjoy cocktail hour in the Garden and have the option to watch while your photographer captures memories to last a lifetime.

 

The Cabin Garden has been used to host lawn games, cigar bars and even picnic blankets (with an occasional four-legged family member!). More great views surround your dining tent and guests can pop in and out of the Cabin for dancing. Throughout your celebration, guests can choose to continue to gather in the amphitheater, stroll the garden or sit and converse in the adjoining tent, on garden benches or in rocking chairs on the porch.

Wedding Receptions at the Emerald Room of the Irish Garden

The half-acre site is in a class of its own. The ceremony area is set inside the six-foot-high stone walls with elegant wrought iron fencing surrounded by a wonderland of flowers. Guests walk the brick walkways with custom shamrock inlays and can either take a seat or wander about the gardens. Meanwhile your bridal party has snuck in the side entrance to the private lounge for last minute primping, photos and pre-celebration.

 

While your guests view your bridal party under the beautiful gazebo, your betrothed watches as you begin your walk down the aisle. After your ceremony big wooden doors swing open to reveal cocktail hour in the garden; a welcome distraction for your guests while you and your bridal party take photos inside the half-acre Irish Garden or even exit the back gate for more pictures in our gorgeous English, Scottish and Oriental Gardens. Dinner is then served inside the Emerald Room, toasts are made, dancing commences, and the celebration continues inside and outside well into the night.

The Aviary at Wickham Park

Wickham Park is home to a variety of display birds, in addition to the natural wildlife in the park. These birds include turkeys, pheasants, peafowl, owls, waterfowl, and exotic chickens. The park also shelters turkey vultures, Red-Trailed haws, Canada geese, and a Great Horned Owl. All migratory birds are non-releasable to the wild due to injuries. All the birds are kept in the park’s Aviary where the public can view and learn about them.
