INDOOR WEDDINGS AT SOUTHDOWNS MANOR
A Magical Indoor Wedding Venue
Share your vows at our lavish country manor
Weddings are a true celebration of the love between two people who promise to cherish each other and embark on a journey together. If a simple registry office won’t do for your special day, Southdowns Manor is one of the UK’s most awarded indoor wedding venues.
The private grounds, impeccable décor and undeniable romance of our venue capture the very essence of your day and give you a backdrop to add some magic to the occasion.
With a dedicated wedding planning team, and exclusive use of our manor house and its grounds, we bring your vision of what your day should be to reality.
Welcome to Southdowns Manor - the place where your life begins
Southdowns Manor is a private wedding venue in the heart of the South Downs National Park, bordering Surrey, Hampshire and West Sussex. While many other wedding venues have to share their location with busy roads and town centres, we have the luxury of complete privacy.
Our luxurious manor house sits in the middle of rolling hills and lush green countryside, with acres upon acres of scenery encasing it.
From the moment you see our country house, you'll know that your day will indeed be the ultimate celebration of your love - exclusively for your loved ones and nobody else.
We go out of our way to make Southdowns Manor the perfect backdrop for your indoor wedding ceremony and reception.
An authentically romantic venue
There’s something so special about the British countryside, and we’re lucky to be able to appreciate it every day.
As one of the UK’s most treasured national parks, South Downs certainly holds nothing back when it comes to outdoor spaces, with people worldwide flocking to appreciate its raw, uncompromised beauty.
This outstanding natural beauty makes Southdowns Manor so romantic because wherever you look, you’ll see wildlife, rolling hills and our expertly manicured gardens.
Beautifully landscaped gardens
You want your guests to be as excited about your big day as you are, and our stunning wedding venue holds nothing back.
As they approach the house, your guests will notice our beautiful gardens, which offer a glimpse into what's to be expected when stepping into the house.
Every single detail matters, and we leave no stone unturned as we create the perfect backdrop for your big day.
Weddings are about two people coming together, and they should be private. Unfortunately, many venues fail to offer this because of their location, but we're lucky to be in the South Downs National Park.
Whether you have an intimate gathering or a large ceremony and reception, you can guarantee that the day truly is yours and nobody else's.
With zero cars disrupting your ceremony and exclusive use of the venue, we're confident Southdowns Manor will be the perfect location for your vows.
From the minute to step into our country house, you'll feel right at home
As one of the most beautiful venues in the UK, we know how special it is to feel right at home when you’re sharing your vows. Our manor house combines rustic appeal with contemporary decor to create the perfect setting for couples from all backgrounds.
Its accessibility to the home counties also ensures your friends and family can join you on the big day and enjoy exclusive use of the venue.
Making wedding ceremonies memorable
Our ultimate goal is to give you a dream wedding, and our ceremony room brings your closest family and friends together. With its tasteful décor and intimate feel, we can accommodate up to 150 guests on the day, giving you the perfect setting to share your vows.
It’s also easy to decorate according to your wedding theme, and our local suppliers offer a range of floral arrangements and decorations.
Retire to a welcoming honeymoon suite
As part of your wedding package, we include a beautiful honeymoon suite, the perfect place to unwind after a day and evening of celebrations. Decorated to perfection, with a four-poster bed and walk-in shower, you’ll love staying in our lavish suit.
There’s also a circular bath and double sink, but the best part about this room is its location. Look outside the window, and you’ll see a beautiful outdoor space with lush countryside that spans further than the eyes can see.
Luxury double suites for VIPs
The couple’s parents are undoubtedly the VIPs, and we offer two double suites for your closest family or friends to enjoy. Each has its own theme but guarantees privacy and relaxation with comfortable mattresses and luxurious bedding.
With impressive views and all the amenities you’d expect a suite to have, we introduce contemporary décor into rustic features, making each suite a haven.
Other family members and close friends can also take advantage of 12 guest rooms with high-quality décor and bedding. These rooms also have plenty of amenities and will sleep up to 24 people.
Your wedding planner can help you find accommodation for other guests. Our location ensures there are plenty of options in the surrounding counties, so you’ll have no problem if you’re planning a large wedding.
A glimpse of your magical day
Our guests receive a dedicated wedding coordinator to plan each element of the day. We know that weddings can be stressful, but our team makes planning easier for you by helping you bring your vision to life.
Indoor weddings are popular because they're not subject to the weather and offer more intimacy, but our flexible venue can also facilitate indoor and outdoor ceremonies.
Many guests choose to have an indoor wedding in our beautiful country house but use the gorgeous gardens for their photographs.
Choose from a range of wedding packages
We offer a range of wedding packages to make your life easier and ensure the entire day is extra special. These packages range from glamorous parties to rustic charm and intimate weddings.
With assorted customisation options, you’ll be able to relax and look forward to the wedding instead of worrying about planning each little detail.
However, if you have a vision for your big day, your dedicated wedding coordinator will help you bring it to life.
Enjoy exclusive use of the facilities
You’ll also have full use of our venue on your wedding day, including the many rooms and gardens. The bridal party can prepare for the ceremony in the changing room, and our professional and friendly team will take care of your guests.
Weddings should be about different families coming together and celebrating the love between a couple, and we manage to exceed your expectations regarding privacy.
Celebrate at your custom wedding reception
No wedding day would be complete without a fun-filled reception, and our lavish banqueting hall is where indoor receptions take place. You’ll start with a delicious wedding breakfast, with different dining options, including a hog roast with all the trimmings.
Evening entertainment is our speciality, and we know that every couple has an idea of how they want to celebrate.
From lively DJs to spin the decks and get everyone on the dancefloor to a more relaxed setting, you’ll spend the evening with your loved ones; however you want to.
Delicious dining options
One of the best things about our secluded venue is our numerous dining options for each guest. Our specialist chefs prepare a range of dishes, including roast dinners, world foods and options for individuals with dietary needs.
You can also opt for a buffet instead of a sit-down meal, which is great for less formal weddings. Many of our guests also choose the pizza buffet, which has a range of flavours and side dishes.
Why choose Southdowns Manor over other wedding venues?
We’re a unique wedding venue because we go out of our way to offer each guest a customisable experience, with plenty of little touches that make the perfect day. As one of the UK’s most awarded wedding venues, we know we’re doing something right.
Here’s what makes us stand out.
Our weddings are for everyone
We’re an inclusive wedding venue and welcome all couples to our manor house. Our professional and welcoming team never makes anyone uncomfortable, and your sexuality has no bearing on our commitment to your happiness.
Whether you’re a multicultural couple or LGBTQ+, you’ll feel immediately at home here. While we offer civil ceremonies, your wedding planner can help you book a church, mosque or synagogue for a religious ceremony and then return to the manor for your drinks reception and celebration.
We’re an eco-friendly wedding venue
There’s nothing better for us than opening up the house to guests and being able to watch couples begin an exciting journey, but we also take our responsibility to the environment seriously.
We’ll plant a tree for each wedding we host to ensure the South Downs National Park continues to host humans and wildlife for years to come.
Our dedicated local suppliers ensure we have the freshest produce and finishing touches that make your day unique but don’t impact the environment.
You can also choose flowers, cakes and other decorations from these suppliers, reducing delivery costs and carbon emissions.
Stunning gardens for your wedding photos
Our picturesque grounds are totally secluded and make the ideal backdrop for your wedding photos. We’re so proud of our gardens and know they’ll create beautiful memories that will last a lifetime.
Wedding receptions wouldn’t be the same without photos, and you can also book one of our local photographers to capture every single moment of your day.
Make Southdowns Manor yours today
Whether it’s intimate ceremonies or large gatherings, our wedding venue won’t let you down. We’d love to give you a free tour of the grounds and arrange for you to meet with a dedicated wedding coordinator, with no obligation to book our venue.
Alternatively, don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. Your wedding should be the best day of your life, and we make sure every single second of it exceeds your expectations.
We look forward to helping you plan the perfect indoor wedding.
