The Perfect Setting

Compton Acres offers 10 acres of historic grade II listed gardens dating back to 1924. The whimsical design includes gorgeous themed gardens set out on a circular route like jewels on a necklace.

Your journey starts with the elegant splendour of the Italian Garden overlooked by the imposing Italian Villa where your wedding will be held. Take full advantage of this magnificent formal garden with an al fresco drinks reception, and set the scene for a truly magical wedding day.

As well as enjoying use of the Italian Garden as an entertaining space for your guests, you’ll want to make the most of the romantic photo opportunities you’ll find in our other gardens too! Go on a tour of our enchanting scenery with your photographer and discover the perfect setting to capture precious wedding memories that will last a lifetime. With a candlelit grotto, stylish Japanese Garden, statues, picturesque ponds, waterfalls and dramatic planting, every couple can find the perfect backdrop.
