On our wedding day we had the cabin package which is pretty much all outdoors. It was a MONSOON all day long. I am a big believer of things meant to happen and I believe that was meant to happen. Instead of having our wedding overlooking Hartford we had it inside the cabin with a big huge fire going. I grew up in a log cabin and aspects of the cabin were reminiscent of our childhood home :) My husband also loves fire places and has an inside joke with moose (the enormous one in front of the fireplace made the night) . The moose head, the fire, and just being in the cabin was more us. Not only was our day amazing Pamela was a joy to email and chat with. Either way Wickham Park cabin package is the way to go in the Manchester area RAIN.....or SHINE :) We could of let the rain ruin the day but we just embraced it, our guests didn't mind at all and multiple family members have told me it's the best wedding they have been to!

My husband and I were recently married at Wickham Park. It was perfect and everything we dreamed it would be. We were lucky to have amazing weather, as our ceremony was outside and everyone commented on how beautiful the wedding was. It was truly majestic. Wickham Park is so very beautiful. Many of our guests said it was the prettiest and best wedding they have ever attended. We had the Cabin package and both the ceremony and reception on site. This was perfect for us and our guests. The guests were able to move right into the fun of the night and cocktails right after the ceremony without needing to drive somewhere new - and we were able to move right into gorgeous pictures in the Gardens. The Tent, Cabin, and Garden provided a wonderful venue for people to mingle outside, sit inside, dance, etc., but be cohesive and connected at the same time. I cannot recommend this site enough for the most beautiful wedding. It was very romantic, yet relaxing and fun. In addition to the beautiful site, the staff is fantastic!! Pamela was so easy to work with - professional, responsive, and so very sweet. The whole process of planning the event there was super easy and they were willing to work with us in any way. Thank you so very much, Pamela and Wickham Park, for making our wedding day so very special and unforgettable!

We looked at a half dozen venues and as soon as we visited Wickham, we knew this was right for us. We did both reception and ceremony in the Cabin Garden. The views were amazing, the garden was gorgeous, and the cabin/tent worked great for dinner and dancing (and the side lawn became the site of an epic corn hole tournament). Friends and family all had wonderful things to say about our setting. Even though this is a park open to the public, we felt like we were in our own little world. Staff were easy to work with and responsive to inquiries throughout our planning process. They also provided a great suggested vendors list which made choosing vendors familiar with the park much easier.

Wickham Park is an amazing choice for a wedding venue. The grounds were beautiful and offered the photographer as well as wedding guests amazing locations for photographs. The staff was a delight to work with, especially Pam who responded promptly to emails and phone calls. My guests can't stop talking about this perfect, peaceful location for a wedding.

We always dreamed of the perfect garden wedding, and no place could have been more perfect than Wickham Park. We fell in love with the Lotus Garden, with its rustic pagoda, tranquil gardens, and beautiful fountain. We knew immediately this was the place! We were amazed at the price, which we considered an absolute bargain for what we were afforded: A lush, beautiful garden for our own private use, and a staff that was there for us at every turn! Our guests were so pleased and impressed as well. A beautiful backdrop to our amazing day.

I recently had my wedding reception and ceremony at The Cabin at Wickham Park this past spring. This venue truly is a hidden gem. The view from the hill is stunning and makes for great pictures. You can also take pictures in the other gardens throughout the park which adds diversity to your photos. We decided to use high top tables throughout the garden for cocktail hour and it looked beautiful! The park staff was professional in all communications and you could tell they truly care about your big day. The grounds were beautifully manicured during every visit, including on our wedding day. The rain held off just long enough for us to finish our ceremony on the amphitheater. Weather was a concern for me when booking an outdoor venue such as this, but they proved they are prepared to handle the rain. Overall, I was most satisfied with Wickham Park as my wedding venue, and would highly recommend it to brides-to-be!

I was in love with Wickham Park the very first time I stepped into the cabin garden. The place is BEAUTIFUL. The staff was incredible from the very first day we met them. They were professional, timely in all responses and beyond helpful when it came to working with me and my wedding coordinator. The place is seriously flawless. If you want a unique, beautiful venue, whether you hold your entire event at the cabin garden or just use one of the gardens for photos or just a ceremony, Wickham Park is definitely the place to be.

I got married in the Cabin Garden in September, and I couldn't have picked a better venue. It was absolutely gorgeous, and everything about the grounds and Cabin were impeccable. My husband and I live in Brooklyn, and we were looking for something rustic, yet polished, somewhere outside the city. Wickham Park is exactly that. With all of the little details that go into a wedding, looking back, I can say that the venue is the most crucial, and I couldn't have found anything more perfect.

I don't know how to put into words how absolutely PERFECT this location is for a wedding!! I contacted Rhonda at Wickham Park back in January 2011 and from the get-go she was fantastic! We booked the Cabin Package which gave us the cabin, the garden, tent, tables & chairs for 150 and the ceremony site for 8 hours. The weather was beautiful. The ranger assigned to us for the day was a total sweetheart and so helpful. The only downside was that the A/C didn't seem to be working too well and it was pretty hot in the cabin BUT we managed to deal just fine and danced the day away!!

I would recommend this site to anyone and EVERYONE. It was truly magical. I never thought myself to be an outdoor wedding type of girl but this was breathtaking. The hartford skyline is infront/behind you creating a picturesque backdrop. In the fall it is equally as (if not more!) stunning! We added two white industrial fans in the garden tent outside to circulate the air and it helped tremendously.

Thank you so so much for making our day magical!! We love you!!
