Congratulations on your engagement!

Ashdown Park Hotel is a hidden gem, nestled within 186 acres of glorious parkland at the heart of the Ashdown Forest in East Sussex, home to Winnie the Pooh and friends!

Set at the end of a sweeping drive, the Grade II listed mansion house has a choice of period rooms including a converted chapel with its stunning stained glass windows, beautifully landscaped grounds, and a lovingly maintained secret garden, which all conspire to make Ashdown Park one of the most romantic wedding venues in Sussex.

The Summer House, which stands in a quiet part of the lawn overlooking the lake, offers an altogether different kind of experience which is more informal and relaxed but no less romantic.

Couples are spoilt for choice when it comes to beautiful settings for wedding photographs. Seek out our beautiful Secret Garden, or a shady spot overlooking the lake, backlit by dappled sunshine streaming through the trees of the East Sussex countryside.

Ashdown Park is a magical location to get married whatever the season. Spring and summer bring sunshine, fresh leaves on the trees and lighter evenings whilst autumn and winter bring candlelight, frosty ground and the scent of cinnamon in the air. Whatever the time of year, there are a wealth of stunning backdrops for your photographs and your guests are guaranteed to be impressed at the magnificence of the hotel and its grounds as well as the impeccable service they receive.

As soon as we walked into into the Chapel in Ashdown Park, we knew this was it! It was the only venue we went to see and we loved how unique it is – it is a beautiful setting and every little detail has been thought of!

Nothing was too much trouble in the run up to the wedding and everything was handled very smoothly. Both you and Braden are amazing and couldn’t do enough for us.

The day itself was absolutely incredible, the feel of the venue, the food and the service! Everything was taken care of, allowing us to enjoy the most amazing day! I wish we could do all of it again!! Every person at the wedding commented on how beautiful the venue was and many commented that they had wedding envy!

Warm regards,
Philomène & Peter

From the moment we arrived for our first meeting with Tanya and the team, to the moment they waved us off the morning after our wedding; the team at the Ashdown Park Hotel have gone out of their way to consistently meet our demands, offer suggestions and guide us through the busy, hectic and

sometimes stressful process of wedding planning. Everything we needed was done for us, and every question we had no matter how small or silly was answered with professionalism and courtesy and understanding.

The venue itself is beautiful and has such character, it is not everyday you can have a civil wedding ceremony surrounded by the most beautiful stained glass usually reserved for churches and cathedrals. Each room has character and uniqueness that follows through every interaction you will have with the venue and its staff. The level of service on display from each and every single member of staff has been one of the most common threads of feedback we have had from our guests. They were all bowled over by the staff and how they were all made to feel during their stay at the venue.

The wedding day itself was run with effortless efficiency by the team, we never had to look too far for help or assistance, or even at one point another glass of champagne of some canapes for the Bride who had missed them while having photos taken - again an incredible attention to detail and level of attentiveness we hadn't quite expected.

In summation, 18 months of planning resulted in the most wonderful day that we will look back on and treasure fondly for all out years to come and we simply could not have done it without the help, care and hard work of every single team member we met and interacted with. I will go out of my way to recommend the venue to anyone who wants to listen to me and I honestly believe that anyone who chooses this fabulous venue for their own special day will not be disappointed.

Our heartfelt thanks to Tanya, Braden, Claire and all the team!

From the very first moment we stepped foot in the grounds of Ashdown Park we knew that this would be the venue for us. The team at the hotel itself are always so helpful and polite and this goes a long way.
In terms of the events team, well we could not fault them one bit. Throughout our 20 months

planning, nothing was ever too much trouble. Even when we did differ on something the response was from a 'let's sort this out' attitude and everything was perfect. We initially had Ellie be our Event co-ordinator and she was fantastic. A year in she unfortunately left and Lucy Bueno was her replacement. At first we were nervous to have someone new be in charge of the most important day of our lives but after meeting Lucy we knew that we were in safe hands.
Nothing was too much trouble for Lucy and on the day she was fantastic. When my car arrived at the Hotel, Lucy was on hand with a glass of water and something that seems so small really helped calm the nerves at that point. Lucy was also fantastic in liasing with suppliers that I had booked along the way.
The day went off without a hitch and this is thanks to Lucy and Braiden. Braiden stayed until the very end and dealt with any small issues throughout the evening. The food was phenomenal and the waiting staff were polite and helpful.
We honestly cannot thank the team at Ashdown Park enough and we would love to do our day all over again!

gracious, welcoming and caring they looked after all our needs. The hotel was such a stunning venue, I was sad that the weather wasn't great for the day to be outside but it didn't matter because the converted chapel was so stunning our guests loved it. Thank you for helping us have an unforgettable wedding, with so many happy memories. Morag and Danny
