The perfect place to say 'I do'

Definitely Mabie


The Garden Pavilion

New for 2019, our Pavilion has been constructed with care to create the most flexible and accommodating venue possible for your wedding. With solid wooden floors, a heating system for winter and air conditioning in summer and fully glazed frontage, the practicalities mean the Garden Pavilion is perfect for weddings all year round, whatever the weather brings.

Fully lined with chandeliers, fairy lights and magical festoon lighting throughout, it really is an enchanting venue. Shepherds’ crooks and up lighters complete the scene for a truly stunning setting once the daylight begins to fade.

The natural, neutral, classic modern decor of the Garden Pavilion ensures a sympathetic and complimentary canvas for your chosen colour scheme without any clashes. With panoramic views over the gardens, surrounding forest and rolling hills, our beautiful terrace offers a perfect setting for your guests to relax and enjoy a drink.

How it came to be

When our daughter Phillipa got engaged in April 2018 she decided there was nowhere else in the world she would rather get married than Mabie House.  She wanted a unique wedding and she wanted it outside in the gardens. So our journey to the Garden Pavilion began…

We travelled around Dumfries and Galloway, The Lake District and even Loch Lomond to source a marquee we could hire for her special day.  After looking at what seemed like dozens of marquees, of which none suited our requirements or taste, we pondered the idea ‘Why don’t we buy our own?’  

Having been very lucky to cater for hundreds of couples on their special day over the past 21 years, we knew we would excel at providing an excellent service and we decided that our marquee would be of the highest standard with no expense spared.   

After major research, we found ‘Hoecker Structures UK’, which suited all of our requirements. To cut a long story short, six months later the result is the Garden Pavilion!  Not a marquee at all, but a beautiful structure situated on our side garden with its own kitchen and toilet unit.

And so planning began!

The surrounding trees have been cut back, the banking levelled out, and planning permission granted – our new Garden Pavilion will be up and running in Summer 2019, with an official open day on Sunday 4th August 2019.  Watch this space!
