Whether it’s the idyllic scenery or the quintessentially English setting, it’s clear why the South Downs National Park is a favourite location for wedding couples.
A venue that continues to attract brides and grooms year on year is Southdowns Manor, a historical venue located just a few miles from Trotton, near Midhurst.
This spectacular property was originally built in the late 19th century as a two-storey house by the Honourable John Jervis Carnegie. And while the manor has undergone many upgrades, it has carefully preserved its historical charm with elegant furnishings, open fireplaces and sweeping bay windows.
Licensed for civil ceremonies, the manor offers a choice of locations for couples to exchange their vows. The Grand Banqueting Suite is popular for ceremonies of up to 150 guests, while the elegant Sussex Room and the Conservatory are perfect for more intimate occasions. During the warmer months, the outdoor gazebo offers a romantic setting on the Southdowns Manor lawns.
The in-house chefs and wedding planning team work to the highest standards to provide decadent wedding breakfasts and evening entertainment. The manor also boasts 14 sumptuously furnished guest rooms, providing a luxe retreat following celebrations.
With a warm and welcoming feel and a bespoke approach to service, Southdowns Manor places itself as an exclusive ‘home from home’ - all enhanced by the beauty of the surrounding National Park.
