What our clients say about us


“The food provided by Chef Pat was delicious and delivered with a very friendly smile. All of our guests were so happy with the experience and the food really made the night. We have been so happy with the experience that we have re-booked Chef Pat for our Christmas company night! Cannot Wait. Thank you again!!”

“Absolutely brilliant from beginning to end. Website was easy to use. Ed created the perfect menu and made the day so memorable. The food was so delicious and the addition of the truffle mash went down a treat.”

“We booked Ian Coulson as Elvis for our recent Christmas party at home. The entries on Poptop Events for Elvis impersonators was spot on and made for an easy & stress free booking. He was perfect and by popular demand we will be booking him to return next year. Thank you Poptop.”

“I booked this for a small works Christmas do (12 people). Bart arrived on time, set up quickly bringing everything he needed. The cocktail menu was great and everyone enjoyed trying different cocktails. Bart stayed for two hours – plenty long enough as my head hurt the following day. To make the evening I ordered in lots of pizza to soak up the cocktails. Bart cleared up and left us to party on. Highly recommend and would do again.”

FAQs About Garden Wedding Reception

What is a garden wedding?

Like the name suggests, a garden wedding is a wedding or reception that takes place in a garden. Some people choose to rent out private green space for the event, but many more have their wedding in their back garden for an affordable and intimate option. Getting married surrounded by flowers and greenery lends an elegant, romantic mood to the occasion.

At Poptop we have plenty of options to explore while planning your garden wedding reception, including catering services, music, and entertainment. No matter your budget or style, curate the party to your specific needs with the help of our top-notch service providers.

How to plan a garden wedding?

When planning your garden wedding reception, here are a few elements to focus on to ensure you and your guests have a good time:

1. Choosing the right live music can perfectly set the mood for your garden wedding. There are many solo musicians you can hire, including singers, guitarists, and saxophone players.

2. Capture and preserve memories from your special day by hiring one of the professional photographers or videographers we have here on Poptop. If you want to add an extra something, consider renting a photo booth so you and your loved ones can take fun photos with props during the reception.

3. Cocktails feature at many weddings, and here at Poptop we have many options to hire a mobile bar for your big day. Depending on what you want for your garden wedding, you can hire a professional to serve signature cocktails or mocktails throughout your party.

How much does a garden wedding cost?

Whether you want to splurge on your garden wedding or if you’re on a budget, Poptop has many vendors and party ideas to explore. We have affordable, mid-range, and premium options for all elements of your party.

 With Poptop’s instant quote technology, your experience planning this event will be easy and straightforward. Just put in a few details about your wedding (location, date, and number of people) and we’ll give you a list of all the available services along with an instant quote. Planning a wedding is far too important to faff about with hidden fees!

What are some good garden wedding menu ideas?

If you need some menu ideas for your upcoming garden wedding reception, look no further! At Poptop we have plenty of catering options from our wide variety of service providers, including private chefs, buffet & canapé setup, and afternoon tea.

If you or your guests have specific needs regarding food, be sure to speak with one of our excellent food service professionals to customise a menu. With many of our chefs vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options are available for you and your loved ones to enjoy on the special day.

What is the best time for garden wedding?

It’s a common misconception that a garden wedding must be held during the spring or summer. There are ways to have a fantastic garden wedding regardless of the time of year. If you choose to have a garden wedding in the autumn or winter, be sure to hire a tent or marquee to keep your guests warm and cosy.

Another thing to think about when planning a garden wedding is the time of day. Golden hour is the time of day right after sunrise or just before sunset, when the golden colour of the sky adds a special aura and optimises photography without an Instagram filter. Consider having your celebrations during golden hour for a gorgeous, photogenic atmosphere.

Where can I find some garden gazebo wedding ideas?

One way to make your garden wedding extra special is by hiring a tent or marquee to celebrate in. If you’re hosting your wedding or reception in your back garden, setting up a tent can create a new space for the celebration to take place.

Another unique idea for your garden gazebo wedding is to hire an at-home cinema experience from one of our service providers. You and your guests can enjoy slideshows and videos on the big screen during the reception, which adds a personalised touch to the event.
