Garden Wedding Venue

A magical place for your wedding ceremony

Birds chirping, sunlight on your dress, fresh flowers and lush greenery surrounding you as you start one of life’s most precious journeys. That’s why so many people choose to share their vows at one of the UK’s most stunning garden wedding venues, Southdowns Manor.

We’re a lavish wedding venue in the heart of the South Downs National Park, bordering West Sussex, Surrey, and Hampshire.

Garden weddings come to life in our magical grounds, creating the perfect ambience to express love and commitment.

As one of the UK’s most awarded wedding venues, we know how to make your day extra special and ensure you have everything you need for a garden wedding that’s bespoke to your needs.


Appreciate natural beauty at our stunning location

Garden weddings combine natural beauty with celebrating one of the most natural things humans will ever experience; love. Our idyllic wedding venue leaves nothing to the imagination, as you'll notice stunning nature wherever you look.

From the rolling countryside to our well-manicured lawns, we let our venue speak for itself. The South Downs National Park is also home to some of the UK's rarest wildlife, including deer, rabbits and butterflies.

When you choose our idyllic gardens, you get a stunning backdrop that never disappoints.


Take advantage of endless natural lighting

Your wedding might only last a day, but the wedding photographs will keep those memories alive forever. Outdoor ceremonies are perfect for photographers to capture the most beautiful moments of your wedding, as the natural light will bring each one to life.

Whether you take your wedding photos midday, where the sun provides a natural filter or take advantage of the ambient evenings, your wedding photos will always remind you of this special day.

Create the perfect space for your wedding guests

Indoor weddings are ideal for formal settings, but outdoor weddings are more customisable regarding seating arrangements. When you choose this kind of setting, you can arrange the seating to suit your needs, creating a more intimate space.

We specialise in bringing your visions to life and go out of our way to give your guests a day to remember. From small weddings to large gatherings, our grounds never fail to deliver that elusive wow factor.
