The neo-Gothic splendour of the Grade II listed mansion house, a choice of period rooms including a converted chapel, beautifully landscaped grounds, and a lovingly maintained secret garden, all conspire to make Ashdown Park one of the most romantic of wedding venues in Sussex.
The Richard Towneley Suite is a converted chapel with a vaulted hammer beam ceiling and is lit beautifully by stained glass windows. Designed by Harry Clarke, he reputedly used over 30 shades of blue in the windows, bathing the interior in rainbow shades of coloured light, which creates a magical setting that the bride and groom will remember forever.
While the Summer House, which stands in a quiet part of the lawn overlooking the lake, offers an all together different kind of experience which is more informal and relaxed but no less romantic. It’s licensed for civil ceremonies and also makes a charming setting for celebratory refreshments.
Couples are spoilt for choice when it comes to beautiful settings for wedding photographs. Seek out their beautiful Secret Garden, or a shady spot overlooking the lake, backlit by dappled sunshine streaming through the trees of the East Sussex countryside.
Whether you’re celebrating a small intimate wedding in a private room, a larger gathering in one of their banqueting suites, or a spectacular affair with wedding banquet for 150 guests, at Ashdown Park you’ll find the perfect Sussex wedding venue.
