FAQ

SOME THINGS TO CONSIDER FOR YOUR WEDDING AT middleton place

WHERE SHOULD WE

GET READY AT?

Middleton Place does have an Inn next door but the style/decor is not to everyone's taste. So you could get ready there or you could get ready downtown!

 

All of the downtown locations are a 30+ minute drive to Middleton though

 

Check out this blog post of our extensive list of the best hotels, air bnb & historic inns to get ready at in Charleston for your wedding

WHERE SHOULD WE HAVE THE CEREMONY & WHAT TIME DO YOU RECOMMEND?

Your ceremony options are:

 

•Octagonal Garden

this garden boasts pansies and camellias in winter and vibrant azaleas and mixed annuals in spring and summer. Manicured Boxwoods adorn the pathways and live oaks dripping with Spanish moss are visible from every vantage point.


•the Butterfly Lake
At the Parterre’s end, sculpted terraces lead down to the Butterfly Lakes, which look like butterfly wings which extend to the Ashley River beyond.

 

•One of the two secret gardens
The smaller garden is ringed by formal landscaped hedges. The larger, with four marble statues representing the four seasons, is an equally intimate alfresco room decorated with green foliage.

 

•the Middleton Oak

Believed to be more than 900 years old, the Middleton Oak is nestled along the banks of the Ashley River and overlooks a flooded rice field, river and marsh. The adjacent Sundial and Rose Garden completes the romantic setting.

 

•the stable yard

Heritage breed animal lovers and craft enthusiasts will revel in the natural beauty of the Stableyards. Artisans practice centuries-old crafts in the company of heritage breeds.

 

•the Crane Pond

Overlooks the Mill Pond and the spectacular azalea hillside. Live oak trees draped with Spanish moss provide shade.

WHAT ARE THE

RECEPTION OPTIONS?

You can have a tented reception on the lawn but most people choose the Pavilion (helloooo air conditioning!!)

 

Depending on the time of year, you could consider having your dance floor set up outside the Pavilion.

 

You'll definitely want to consider adding some additional lighting options like candles & colored uplighting - it really adds depth to the reception and makes your dancing photos POP.

FOR HOW LONG & WHERE

SHOULD WE PLAN

TO TAKE PORTRAITS?

Take all of your photos at Middleton! The property is huge, so please make sure you reserve a golf cart to take us around.

 

*pssst - did you know you can pay to have the sheep come out to graze and take photos with them?*

 

Plan to take photos for 2 hours before the ceremony regardless of if you're doing a First Look or not.
