Wedding venues in Sussex

Congratulations on your engagement. Now you’ve got the ring, it’s time to find your dream venue. We have three stunning wedding venues in Sussex. All are licensed for weddings and civil ceremonies.

Lewes Castle

Anne of Cleves House

Michelham Priory

Say ‘I do’ at this 1,000-year-old
romantic ruin. One of the
region’s few outdoor wedding
venues, you can exchange
your vows in the sunshine and
treat your guests to panoramic
views of Sussex countryside.
Tie the knot under exposed
beams and fairy lights in this
charming timber-framed
medieval house. An intimate
venue steeped in history, it’s
ideal for smaller weddings that
want the wow factor.
Dance the night away under
bunting and beams in our
spectacular Elizabethan Great
Barn. Set on its own private
island, this venue has a moat
and romantic waterside
gardens.
