The Sunken Garden at Moor Hall has a long history dating back to when it was formed in the 1750s and used as a bear pit. In the late 19th century it was altered to a sunken garden complete with Victorian style grottos, a water fountain and stone archways.
Today, the Sunken Garden creates the perfect backdrop for weddings and civil ceremonies with its woodland setting, shrubbery borders, restored stone walls and verbena and rose lined pathways. Seating up to 200 guests, the wedding party can make a grand entrance at the top of the sweeping double staircase, which sits above a beautiful stone grotto and the couple will exchange vows under the classical stone archway.
Sam Goss, Moor Hall Hotel & Spa’s Manager, commented: “The Sunken Garden at Moor Hall is a fairy tale setting and offers couples something very unique and we are delighted that it has been approved for Marriage and Civil Partnership ceremonies. It is one of the very few venues in the Birmingham region which has a licence for an outdoors wedding, and by offering this we can make a couple’s day even more memorable”.
