With its beautiful grounds, colorful plantings, classic sculpture and serene Outer Banks location, The Elizabethan Gardens is an unforgettable location for your wedding.

The Elizabethan Gardens provides a wonderful setting for weddings large and small. We can accommodate larger weddings as well as weddings with 20 or less.

And there are several unique sites available for your wedding: The Great Lawn, The Sunken Garden, The Gazebo and The Queen’s Rose Garden offer a variety of locations – each with their own character. Likewise, the one-of-a-kind charm of The Elizabethan Gardens offers spectacular locations to photograph your special day. Watch the video below or check out our photo album page.

Our experienced staff will help you select one of these wedding sites, assist you with seating arrangements and suggest a path to take guests through The Gardens to your ceremony. We have directional signage for weddings and some items available for rental.

Music is an essential element of many weddings. If you chose to include music as part of your special event, we allow CD and tape players as well as live music. Our vendor list can help you find just the right touch for your special day.

Our Reception Hall can accommodate 100 guests. The Rose Garden Tent (provided by The Gardens) can accommodate 100 guests. For larger events, a rented tent that accommodates up to 300 guests can be placed on The Great Lawn. (Tent not provided.)

The Gardens Gift Shop can also help you find unique hospitality gifts for your wedding. Check out our line of elegant frames, ideally suited to show off your wedding portrait. Garden souvenirs and gifts are the perfect momento to remember your special day.
