Our Unique Wedding Packages Make Your Day Truly Yours

At Southdowns Manor, we bring your vision for the perfect wedding to life

When you finally say ‘I Do’ and begin your journey as life partners, it should be the most exciting and meaningful day you’ll ever experience. Many people dream of their perfect wedding, but few get to turn that dream into a reality.

Well, that’s about to change.

Southdowns Manor is a multi-award-winning wedding venue in the heart of the South Downs National Park. We offer our guests the opportunity to have the wedding they want and celebrate their special day in their unique style.

Not everyone wants the ultra-formal wedding with a set menu, and our three specialist wedding packages are ideal if you’d like to put a personal stamp on your day.

With three exclusive packages to choose between, we fit our venue around your needs – not the other way around.

It’s time to make your wedding day yours, and we can help you to do just that.

Choose from three packages at our unique wedding venue

If you’re looking for a wedding that suits your personality, you’ve come to the right place. Formal ceremonies and receptions are lovely, but they’re not for everyone. Perhaps you want a more rustic setting for your wedding, or you’re a fan of small gatherings with just close family and friends.

Whatever your preference is, these three packages make perfect intimate weddings and will take the weight off of your shoulders and let you take in every moment of your wedding ceremony and reception.

The country wedding package: From £8,500.00 - based on 60 day guests

Wonderfully rustic and quintessentially British, this package is a dream come true for guests that want an intimate wedding celebration. Country weddings are about appreciating the great outdoors and incorporating them into every element of the vows and celebrating.

Our enviable location means we can give you the best of nature while providing your guests with an unforgettable experience.

A glimpse of your day

A country theme is one of the more unique wedding ideas because it focuses more on family and friends coming together to celebrate your love. Your very own wedding coordinators will help you plan each moment of the day, including colour schemes and table decorations.

Once you share your vows, you have the opportunity to relax with your other half in front of the fire while enjoying a classical country drinks reception. Our spectacular grounds are the perfect backdrop for your wedding photographs, and the many decorative elements set a wonderfully rustic scene.

During your reception, you and your adult guests will sip on a glass of bubbly and enjoy a country buffet of British fayre, including:

  • Lancashire sausages
  • Mini sausage rolls
  • Potato wedges
  • Chicken goujons
  • A selection of crisps

Your guests can dance the night away using the PA system, or you can hire a DJ for a small extra fee.

After the celebrations, you’ll wake up the following morning to a delicious wedding breakfast and read your guests’ messages from the post box.

Tie the knot at a multi-award-winning wedding venue

For many of our guests, Southdowns Manor is a dream wedding venue because it offers so much beauty and tranquillity. We’re so lucky to call the South Downs National Park our home, and our proximity to Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex mean many couples choose to share their vows at our lavish country house.

We’re completely out of the way of large cities and towns, making our unique venue the perfect place for couples to share special moments with their closest friends and family.

The first thing you’ll notice about our location is the rolling hills and lush countryside surrounding the venue and grounds. It’s full of wildlife, including birds, deer and butterflies, making Southdowns Manor the perfect place for a traditional outdoor wedding.

Of course, you can also choose our contemporary-style ceremony room if you’d prefer an indoor wedding, and take advantage of our stunning grounds, which make the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos.

The rooms

If you’re looking for a romantic venue, it doesn’t get much better than our charming manor house. With its impeccable decor, we ensure you and your guests can relax in one of 14 beautifully decorated rooms.

The honeymoon suite has a four-poster bed, a large circular bath and a walk-in shower, while our two other luxury suites include all the amenities you’d expect from a wedding venue of this calibre.

There are also twelve other rooms for your close friends and family, while other guests can stay in one of the numerous hotels in the area.

An area of outstanding natural beauty

The South Downs National Park is one of the most infamous areas of natural beauty in England, with acres upon acres of green countryside and trees that make visitors feel as if they’ve stepped into a magical world, away from the stresses of daily life.

We know that our location offers so much raw natural beauty, but our grounds also feature stunning features and expertly manicured lawns, which are perfect for your wedding photographs.

At Southdowns Manor, you get the best of both worlds, including relaxing at our venue and enjoying everything the park and its surrounding towns offer.

Fully sustainable

Our unique venue makes wedding planning a dream because we have everything you need for the perfect day. We specialise in real weddings and ensure you and your guests have a fantastic time without worrying about your carbon footprint.

Wherever possible, we go out of our way to ensure we give back to the environment and plant a tree for every wedding we host, so our beautiful land can continue to flourish.

We also work with local suppliers and can help you choose environmentally friendly floral arrangements, decorative features and a wedding cake from reputable businesses.

Imagine fresh, seasonal flowers for your wedding bouquet and delicious locally grown food after sharing your wedding vows. That’s why Southdowns Manor is the go-to place for environmentally conscious bridal parties.
