Wickham Park is a parklands wedding venue situated in Manchester, CT. Bordering both Manchester and East Hartford, this 280-acre park is home to two stunning event spaces. Here, amidst manicured gardens, sprawling woodlands, and peaceful ponds, your guests can celebrate your love story in a picturesque setting. Clarence Wickham’s wish was for the public to enjoy this beautiful park, originally a gift to his wife, Edith. What better way to celebrate your day than in a place that was founded on the enduring power of true love. There are two main wedding venues at Wickham Park, the Cabin at Hilltop Garden and the Emerald Room. The Cabin Garden boasts spectacular views of Hartford where you can say ‘I do’ on the terrace beneath a floral arbor. Afterward, guests can mingle during cocktail hour, take a stroll through the grounds, or perch on quaint rocking chairs. This is a splendid setting for taking wedding photographs and soaking in the beauty of nature. Evening receptions for up to 150 people take place in a marquee tent adjoined to a wooden cabin. White seating, round tables, and elegant linens set the tone for a night of dinner and dancing. The dance floor is located inside the cabin, a rustic and refined space characterized by polished wooden floors, exposed wooden beams, and a grand brick fireplace. The Emerald Room is located by the Irish Garden that features a walled garden filled with cherubic statues, florals, and greenery. Following your ceremony in the gazebo, you and up to 98 guests can make their way to the Emerald Room for a night to remember. You can hire both venues at Wickham Park for an eight-hour period during which time you will have exclusive use of your chosen destination. Catering and bartending services can be chosen from a list of trusted and recommended suppliers. The dedicated event team will be on hand to manage your special day. Furnishings are provided and rentals can be arranged via the park personnel.
