A Licensed Wedding Venue in Sussex for Civil Ceremonies and Receptions

Wedding & Civil Partnership Venue in Sussex

A hidden gem on the borders of the outstanding natural beauty of the Kent and Sussex countryside. A stunning venue that is exclusively yours on your special day. Wadhurst Castle is a beautiful country house with a warm and welcoming atmosphere and magnificent gardens. The perfect setting for weddings and any other unforgettable celebration from a party of 2 up to 150 people. Our flexible and tailored approach means that we host receptions with or without a ceremony or the ceremony alone.

The castle is both a grand family house and a home from home. The stunning views create the perfect backdrop to your wedding experience. Guests can take advantage of the variety of licensed rooms from the intimacy of the Moncrieff Room, the Victorian charm of the Winter Garden with its exotic plants, to the grandeur of the Drawing Room. In the summer our guests can enjoy open air ceremonies in the beautiful Walled Garden. However you plan your day, Wadhurst Castle is exclusively yours for your special day.

Wadhurst Castle also offers the perfect setting for any other celebration or event, such as renewing your vows, naming your baby or any special occasion with your family and friends.

You will have our team on hand to help guide you through your event journey and to manage everything for you on the special day. Let our friendly and experienced team look after the details of your special event and help realise your dreams.
