We hosted our wedding celebration at Balcombe Place on 25th May 2019, and it was simply perfect. We opted to be at Balcombe for the whole weekend, which made the celebration feel like a real family affair, and like Balcombe was home.
On our arrival on Friday, we had a lazy family lunch, and then pottered around for the rest of the day, slowly preparing for the wedding itself, before all dressing up for a delicious rehearsal dinner that evening.
The morning of the wedding, we were able to wander through each other’s rooms for help with zips, nails and eyelash extensions, and even have a last-minute rehearsal of the bridal party walking down the aisle!
After our ceremony in a nearby chapel, the grounds were the perfect setting for our drinks reception, where we had various garden games on the lawn, and our guests milled unhindered throughout the ground floor rooms to the sound of a jazz pianist in the Main Hall.
We had so much space which we could make use of, with the wedding breakfast hosted in the decadent Music Room with arches through to the Billiard Room, in the Drawing Room we had the cake cutting in front of the stunning fireplace, and later the hugely extravagant cheese station, and a quieter space to sit and sip coffee in the Library.
Emma really went above and beyond, both during the planning, and on the day itself, which meant we could just sit back and relax, with absolute confidence and trust in her.
We would highly recommend Balcombe and Emma to anyone wishing to host any event from an intimate affair to a much larger party!
