This was a great venue to work with. They were very flexible with our requests and we had some wild ones, best of all they are pet friendly! Very reasonably priced especially with this kind of event. Love this place and would recommend it to anybody!

I recently had my wedding at the new Emerald Room in the park and it was perfect. The venue is stunning and we received so many compliments from our guests. The stone walls, the fountain and the plantings surrounding the venue were gorgeous and made for great photos. We loved being able to have an outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour and an indoor reception. Even though we always wanted an outdoor ceremony, having the option of the indoor reception space for the ceremony as a back up in case of rain was nice. The bridal suite in the Emerald Room was also a huge plus. It was nice to have a place to relax while guests were arriving. The staff at the park were also great. Pam was always quick to answer my (many) questions in the months leading up the wedding and was very accomdating. The ranger staff and venue attendant were all very helpful the day of our event. With the stress of wedding day and wanting everything to go smoothly, it was so nice to go into the day having full confidence in Wickham!

Pamela and the staff at Wickham Park have been nothing short of fabulous for every event we have had the pleasure to have served there for many years now. They are always responsive to any question or request, whether it be from us directly or from the clients we have served there. There is never a difference in service between pavilion outings or Cabin weddings, and a staff member is always around to make sure every event goes as planned, and they treat them all as if they are the only one they are hosting that day. We strongly recommend Wickham Park for your next event, and look forward to providing our services there for many years to come.

A great venue that has the advantage of both an outside and inside feel while being sheltered from the weather. It's definitely the best of both worlds. Beautiful park setting run by professionals. We love working here!

Wickham Park is a beautiful venue for a wedding and Pamela and her staff are wonderful to work with!
