How to Choose Your Wedding Month | A Year in the Treseren Gardens

Set in two acres of peaceful gardens and bounded by mature trees, Treseren’s secluded setting is something special. Those of us that are lucky enough to work here are privileged to bear witness to the changing seasons and the technicolour magic that mother nature produces year after year.

It can often be hard for couples to visualise what the gardens will be like at a certain point in the year, so we have created this snapshot to inspire wedding planning for all seasons!

Spring March- May

The spring months are always bursting with new life, daffodils line the driveway from late February through to April when they are replaced with a carpet of bluebells that loudly announce themselves as the following act. The front garden is a riot of colour as the hydrangeas, magnolias, rhododendrons and camelias are all in full bloom – creating a dreamy backdrop of pinks and reds.

Summer June – August

Our much loved 200-year-old walnut tree is at its most impressive from late June, adorned with a full coat of luscious green leaves. This natural canopy creates the perfect setting for a ceremony, with shade from the afternoon sun and dreamy dappled light. The purple verbena that lines the pathway to the covered terrace is at full height from July and rambling roses and English lavender bloom enthusiastically from the flowerbeds. The front garden show is over and the remaining green creates the perfect backdrop for a full floral ceremony arch.

Autumn – September – November

Whilst September can often produce some scorching late-summer days with the purple verbena and orange crocosmia still showing off with their vibrancy, as we approach November the gardens become home to the many shades of autumn. Greens slowly turn to rich reds and golden hues of fallen leaves scatter the lawns. Some perennials will still be flowering offering pops of colour amidst the auburn backdrop.

Winter – December – February

The established evergreens are a steadfast feature of the gardens all year long and in the winter months cheerful winter bulbs and velveteen hellebores (often romantically named the Christmas rose) join the party. Crisp winter days with glistening raindrops and the soft crunch of leaves underfoot are just magical – and of course we always hope for a dusting of Cornish snow! Glistening red berries decorate the holly bushes and snowdrops begin to appear in January as the gardens gear up to start all over again…

Our wonderful gardener Justin is always working hard to make sure the gardens look their best. We encourage photos in the Treseren gardens no matter what month your wedding takes place as a beautiful backdrop will always await – and of course we have umbrellas just in case the British weather has other ideas!
