Full Description
With over 40 years experience and a reputation of delivering exceptional experiences in all areas of the business, we will assist you in your exciting engagement journey from start to finish. Every couple is unique, and therefore we pride ourselves on our ability to create bespoke packages with your budget in mind. Bathed in natural light, The Glass House ceremony room can seat up to 80 guests and overlooks the landscaped gardens. Adorned with large crystal chandeliers, The Glass House orangery is elegantly furnished and opens out to a large furnished terrace, perfect for a post-ceremony glass of bubbles and carefully crafted canapés! Whilst outside on your exclusive terrace, enjoy the beautiful surroundings in the gardens of Wickwoods. Nestled amongst mature oak and spurs woodland, you will be sure to create lasting memories in the perfect setting for your photographs. Once your guests have been called to take their seats, your grand entrance to the Garden Room will be announced. There you will take your seats to enjoy your sumptuous 3 course meal, prepared by some of Sussex's finest chef's. As the sun begins to set, take in the evening atmosphere as more guests arrive. With built-in uplighters in the trees our landscaped gardens will light up, creating a truly beautiful setting at night. With twinkly fairy lights creating an enchanting backdrop for your evening reception, take your place beneath our mirrored disco ball and enjoy your first dance as a married couple. Your guests will then join in the fun and dance the night away! Retire to your Luxury Bridal Suite, complements of Wickwoods, complete with a king size sleigh bed, and balcony overlooking your venue. The next morning, reminisce over the most magical day of your life with your loved ones at breakfast time before the farewells begin. Our team will be on hand to assist every step of the way, until they wave you off to enjoy your new life as a married couple!

Everything was exactly as we wanted it
Tom and I just wanted to thank the entire team for making our day the best it could be. Everything was exactly as we wanted it and we are so glad to have chosen Wickwoods as our venue. Jas and James were both great in helping to make sure we were set up on the day and we were so impressed with the way the team worked together to ensure everything ran so smoothly.

Wedding Praise!
Thank you so much for am amazing weekend. Greg and myself were delighted with the whole time we spent at Wickwoods. The wedding was so special and was so much fun. Please give a special thank you to the chef for a wonderful meal. To the waiting staff for efficient, attentive but not intrusive service. The disco was perfect and they did as asked just keep the dance floor full and it was all night. Huge thank you to you Wendy for your seamless organisation of the day. It has been a delight to use your venue and I will be recommending it to anyone who is looking for a party/wedding venue.

Our Perfect Wedding
Thank you to all of the team at Wickwoods for hosting our dream wedding day - we truly had the most amazing day. From our first visit with Wendy to the wedding day the service we had was exceptional with nothing being to much trouble (even down to personally delivering a charger that had been left in one of the rooms!) All of our friends and family have been saying what a fantastic time they had & want to do it all over again! Thank you to Wendy & Matt for being so attentive on the day & making sure everything ran to plan so we did not have to worry about a thing, and to the ladies from the spa for making us feel very pampered. Fantastic venue, amazing wedding breakfast, excellent team - would highly recommend

Cannot fault a single thing!
Wonderful stay for our daughter’s wedding. Would like to thank all the staff for the service, attention to detail and friendliness. We had a lovely meal in the glass house the night before the wedding and the whole wedding day from start to finish was amazing. All our family and friends have commented on how much they enjoyed the day and how professional all the staff were. The food was first class and service impeccable. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the ceremony room and reception room looked stunning. The terrace and grounds were beautiful. We would certainly recommend anyone planning a wedding to visit and book Wickwoods. We certainly had a day we will never forget!

Perfect Wedding
Attending my sons wedding we had our room for two nights although we only stayed for the night of the 3rd. The whole experience was without fault from the first meeting with Wendy until our final goodbye on Sunday morning with Lisa. My husband and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff involved from the bar and waitress staff to those lovely people who cleared up after the event .. a big big thank you to you all. We would like to especially thank Lisa without whom things would not have gone so smoothly, her kindness and friendly smile put us all at ease and of course Wendy without your help I am sure it would not have been as special and well organised ..Thankyou from us all. If ever we are asked in the future for the perfect location to hold a wedding you will be our first and probably only answer we could not have wished for a more perfect day, thank you all again from the whole Brouner and Roberton families and all our guests

FAQ

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Choose a venue or supplier that you feel at ease with. Most importantly, do your research and check that your venue or suppliers are a professional business with a good reputation and experience, not a quick pop-up!

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Definitely in the Woodlands! They look stunning year-round, with Bluebells in the Spring, lush greens in the Summer, Crimsons and Oranges in the Autumn and a sprinkling of snow or frost in the Winter.

What’s your favourite canapé?

Mini Yorkshire pudding, roast beef & horseradish mayonnaise

What is your venue's most unique feature?

We pride ourselves on customising our approach to each individual couple, and delivering an exceptional experience from the planning stages, right through until the big day. Rest assured, each and every detail will be covered, and your special day will run seamlessly.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

We are most proud of our valued team members and their passion for helping exceed clients' expectations. It is an absolute pleasure to work alongside a team that genuinely love what they do, and our bride's and grooms ALWAYS notice this!
