Making the Most of the Outdoors at your Morden Hall Wedding

Morden Hall offers an idyllic, tranquil setting amongst the bustling suburbs of south London. We hope you’ll enjoy many moments of your special day in its elegant private gardens beside the River Wandle. If you’re looking for some outdoor inspiration, you need look no further!

Eating and Drinking

The gardens at Morden Hall are just the place to enjoy welcome drinks, canapés and evening dining. Speak to our talented on-site catering team about delighting your guests with tantalising canapés and outdoor cocktail stations. You might even have a gin bar and a mocktail station on the lawn. As day turns to evening, our firepit barbecues and food stalls under the stars create an element of theatre – the perfect finale to a magical day.

Fabulous Photographs

Capture memories with some beautiful outdoor photographs, whatever the weather. The lawn and the romantic footbridge offer exceptional photo opportunities, from group shots to romantic moments of the two of you. And, of course, you can feature Morden Hall itself as a magnificent backdrop. If you have your heart set on some outdoor photographs, consider investing in a few elegant umbrellas – the ultimate prop if the weather isn’t ideal.

All about Entertainment

If you’re planning on spending time outside, be sure to consider some outdoor entertainment. You might have live music during welcome drinks and a close-up magician to add an additional element of fun. Our flat lawn lends itself perfectly to garden games, from croquet to giant Jenga and, of course, there’s nothing quite like a treasure hunt to keep your younger guests happily occupied.

Practical Considerations

The gardens at Morden hall are well loved throughout the year and it’s always worth considering the comfort of your guests if you’re planning on spending time outside. Make the most of the shade in the summer months, highlighting shaded areas to shelter your guests from the sun. In the height of the season, offer parasols, fans and sunglasses (which make great wedding favours!). And, don’t be put off by cooler weather. Cosy shawls can entice your guests to spend a little time outside, particularly during welcome drinks or evening celebrations.

Plan your wedding attire with the great outdoors in mind, perhaps choosing a pretty wrap or shawl in case you’d like a warmer layer.
