Located just outside of Annapolis in the picturesque town of Edgewater, Maryland, the Historic London Town & Gardens is a unique and breathtaking venue that has been capturing the hearts of visitors for centuries. This 23-acre park is a perfect setting for a wide range of portraits, including family, engagement, and senior photos. However, it truly shines as a dream location for wedding ceremonies and receptions. The rich history and enchanting gardens of London Town make it an idyllic spot to celebrate life’s most memorable moments.

Established in 1683 as a tobacco port, London Town was a thriving commercial and transportation hub along the South River during the 18th century. The town boasted numerous inns, taverns, and merchant shops, attracting travelers from all over the colonies. Over time, the bustling port town declined due to changes in trade routes and the rise of nearby Annapolis, but the enchanting beauty of the area remained.

The Historic London Town & Gardens we know today began its transformation in the 20th century when the London Town Foundation was established in 1965. The foundation aimed to preserve and restore the site’s historic buildings, archaeological features, and exquisite gardens. Among the carefully restored buildings, the William Brown House, built in 1760, is the centerpiece of the park. This stunning Georgian-style building is now a National Historic Landmark, serving as a testament to the town’s past.

The gardens at London Town are a horticultural paradise, boasting a diverse range of flora, including azaleas, rhododendrons, and magnolias. The gardens bloom throughout the year, providing a vibrant and ever-changing backdrop for portraits and wedding ceremonies. Meandering paths, charming gazebos, and a beautiful waterfront pier create a romantic atmosphere that is hard to resist.

This magical setting attracts couples from all over the country to exchange their vows beneath the canopy of ancient trees or alongside the serene South River. The venue offers several picturesque locations for ceremonies and receptions, including the ornamental gardens, the pavilion with its panoramic views, and the rustic yet elegant Glass House. The experienced staff at London Town is dedicated to making each wedding a unique and unforgettable experience for couples and their guests.
