Exclusive use wedding venues: your home from home

Exclusive use wedding venues: your home from home

Choosing your venue is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make when you’re planning your big day. Every detail has to be just right, from the spot where you’ll say your vows to the setting for your evening festivities. But perhaps the most important aspect of all is how you feel about the place. The chances are that you’ll feel a closer sense of connection with your venue if you have it completely to yourselves, and that’s why hiring your venue on an exclusive use basis can make your wedding celebrations even more special.

Why go exclusive use?

The fantastic thing about exclusive use is that you get the entire venue to yourselves. That means there won’t be any other guests or members of the public milling around gawping at you on your special day; just you and those you hold dear. This gives your venue and wedding a more relaxed and intimate feel, with everything arranged just as you want it. You won’t even have to worry about travelling to your first night hotel after the reception, because you’ll be there already – so you can stay with your guests and party the night away to your heart’s content.

Your home for the day

Here at Southdowns Manor, we’re proud of the fact that we’re an exclusive use wedding venue. That means that when you book your bespoke wedding with us, you get the whole of the manor and its stunning landscaped gardens and grounds all to yourself for you and your guests.

With room for up to 150 guests on the day, and 15 beautiful en-suite guest rooms for those who wish to stay over, Southdowns will feel just like home for you, your friends and family. The morning after your wedding, you’ll wake up in a romantic four-poster bed in the exquisite honeymoon suite, overlooking sweeping views of the South Downs. When you’re ready, you can head down to enjoy a delicious breakfast with your guests, just as though you were at home. It’s the perfect way to make the magic of your wedding celebrations last even longer.
