Loved everything about this venue

We got married at this incredible venue on 15th September and it was everything we could have imagined and more. We looked at 12 venues before choosing Aldwick Estate and we both had the same feeling as we did when we bought our first home. We knew it was right for us and it did not disappoint.

Our whole experience with the team has been great throughout; their communication impeccable and hugely responsive on email exchanges.

Our pre wedding planning meeting with Sarah was warm and welcoming, visions for the day shared and help and advice given when needed yet encouraging us to do what made us happy.

Everything on the day ran incredibly smoothly with a huge thanks to Sarah and Saffron for all their hard work they put in to making sure everything was perfect. The set up was exactly how I envisaged and the day ran seamlessly. All our guests absolutely
Loved the venue and the staff were all so friendly and welcoming.

The food was absolutely delicious and cannot speak highly enough of the catering team who did an incredible job. It was a day we will cherish forever and we are so thrilled that Aldwick gave us the dream wedding we had our sights on. Thank you to each and every one of the team, it was literally the best day ever.

The most perfect venue in every way

The team at Aldwick crafted our PERFECT day and we couldn't be more grateful. There was almost zero stress in planning our wedding thanks to the wonderful team and resources they have to hand. The table decorations were phenomenal, and the team used their creative flair all around the venue to make it look magical - we couldn't be happier.
When we met Anna, we knew we would be in good hands - and when she needed to pass us over to Sarah and Saffron we were still in great hands - the whole team is so wonderful, kind and attentive. They checked everything with us at every point, sent friendly reminders, made brilliant suggestions and were just everything you would want in wedding coordinators.
The venue itself is absolutely stunning. We fell in love with the vineyard last Summer, and booked our big day within hours because we knew nothing else would compare. The location is perfect, and the onsite accommodation is brilliant. Space for everyone to get ready in the morning if you stay the night before, everything is clean, tidy, and beautifully decorated, and the luxury lodge is PERFECT. We woke up to rain the morning after our beautiful day, and the smell of the rain around the vineyard was so refreshing, and the views - despite the grey - we're still incredible.
We could not have chosen better, and we couldn't be more grateful. Thank you Aldwick!!!

Beautiful Wedding Venue

Can’t recommend Aldwick enough! Such a beautiful venue for our wedding and a lovely team helping us to make it the perfect day.

They were flexible and helpful when guiding us through multiple rearrangements due to Covid, making us feel special at every stage.

The venue is beautifully laid out so that you don’t need to decorate it much if you don’t want to, but will also easily suit any theme you wanted.

Sarah and the team couldn’t do enough to help on the day and the caterers were also attentive and served a delicious wedding breakfast.

There are plenty of picturesque areas for wedding photos too.

We have no negative comments and will be back for wine tasting in the future 👰🏻‍♀️💍

Spectacular attention to detail

Took the stress and worry out of all the planning and made it such an enjoyable experience. Thought of absolutely everything and were there every step of the way. The day itself was perfect, our wedding coordinator went above and beyond and made everything as stress free as possible. We had full use of the estate and all the rooms for 2 nights which enabled us to arrive the night before our wedding and relax. Everything was taken care of for us and every detail had been thought about by the Aldwick team. Absolutely perfect day cannot thank Aldwick enough!

Wonderful venue, great staff, fantastic day!

The staff were incredibly supportive, helped with all our questions and made everything very easy and stress free. The venue itself is stunning, and having the cottages onside was a great extra bonus. Highly recommend Aldwick!

Best day of our lives thanks to Aldwick's team!

We both want to say a massive and heart-felt thank you to you and the whole team at Aldwick Estates. You guys were amazing, throughout.

Their patience and understanding over two COVID-stricken years and three wedding dates was so appreciated. We had a dream of what our wedding would be and that dream came to life the first time we stepped out of our car at Aldwick Estate.

There were definitely times over the last couple of years when that dream faded for both of us and on a few occasions we considered other options. But thanks to the patience and support of the Aldwick team we never let it go and then our dream came true - better than we could have hoped.

It was perfect and we had so many comments from our guests about how amazing the venue was!

It was the best day of our lives and Sarah, Anna and the whole Aldwick team were a huge part of making that possible. Thank you!

The perfect team and venue

We got married at Aldwick Estate in August this year, and it was just perfect. The venue is beautiful and the team are so lovely. Sarah in particular was so warm, friendly and full of advice and kind words, as well as being professional with her many years of experience in this area. I would really recommend choosing Aldwick as your wedding venue!! :)

Exceeded expectations

We had our beautiful wedding at Aldwick and it exceeded expectations, throughout the planning the trust grows between you and the experienced team. They share passion and enthusiasm to make your day perfect. The use of both rooms make it easy to plan your whole event, the added touches such as their own wine and Taste Buds food just finished it all nicely. And if you want to sample the warmth of this place , they even offer exclusive dates for Sunday dinner...very yummy!!!
