A superb day from beginning to end

We held a celebration of our wedding at All Saints the Old Chapel on the 11th of May. We had a fantastic day thanks in no small part to the stunning venue and the hard work of Dariana and her team. We didn't have to worry about anything from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The ceremony ran perfectly, the food was delicious, served speedily and faultlessly and the recommended DJ was great. Dariana was also brilliant at facilitating the live music we had organised for the wedding breakfast and the end of the evening. Words cannot express how much we enjoyed the day and we are very grateful to Dariana and the team for making it all happen so smoothly.

Breathtakingly perfect, a dream come true!

After a breakfast date kayaking along the river Cuckmere and cooking breakfast on the bank, we visited Dariana - the manager of All Saints to view the venue as a "potential" for our big day last Spring. From the moment she greeted us at the gate, we knew nowhere else would do. And then we stepped inside!! Oh WOW! All Saints has the incredible feel to it, grand yet humble, quietly beautiful, unmistakably THE best place for a Civil Marriage in Eastbourne and beyond! We were hooked immediately. The planning was easy, Dariana was helpful, attentive, thoughtful and knew when to give us space as we got our heads around all the planning involved. She guided us with staging, costs and advice around budget. Never pushy, always tuned in. I wish we had our official photographs at the time of writing this because words alone do not seem enough to describe how incredible it looked as the backdrop to our wedding. Our friends and family traveled from London and Surrey on July 15rh 2022 for our wedding, and they were in awe of the place. We had the hire only package which is a four hour hire of the venue and the local registrar came to perform the ceremony there. There was a fab team on hand to greet our guests with a huge smile, serve them "very generous measures" of prosecco and test out the Space Hoppers for bounceability for us. It was only because we have a very special place in our heart for our local pub and their garden that we did not choose to spend our whole day with Dariana and her team at All Saints. Would we recommend it as a wedding venue - without hesitation! Would we happily do it all again? Every day and we would feel just as confident in being looked after as well as we were, time and time again. Thank you All Saints, Dariana and your brilliant team for making our day even more spectacular and amazing that we could have ever imagined. JoJo and Lee - Mr & Mrs Cook xxxxxx We cannot wait to send you some photos and we hope you will always have at least a little space in your life for us. You are one of a kind!

Beautiful special venue!

Me and my husband got married in May of this year and the venue was absolutely amazing.
Dariana was great to work with and helped us achieve our vision. She went above and beyond leading up and was great on the day making sure everything went to plan.
Nothing was too much for her and loved all our ideas for our big day. I arrived in a horse and carriage and we had our strongman friends as our flower dudes!
It’s such a beautiful venue and we received many compliments!
Very pleased and can’t thank Dariana enough!

One word - WOW

My wife and I recently got married at All Saints Chapel and if we could give it more stars...we would. Ever since our first meeting with Dariana she has gone above and beyond to make our wedding day the most special day possible, and it truly was. The chapel was the only venue we saw and instantly fell in love with it - if you're looking for the wow factor....this place has it in spades!! We were meant to get married in May 2020 but due to covid this was put on hold - however Dariana was just amazing - she kept everything on hold without charging extra like so many other venues we read about had done with couples - nothing is too much trouble for this lady, she is simply first class. We had the most exceptional afternoon tea, the building looked stunning and it was the most perfect day in every way possible. Would highly recommend this wonderful place for your wedding or function. Thank you Dariana and your team xx

Spectacular wedding venue

This venue is so unique and so beautiful. We had to rearrange our wedding due to covid, and the staff have been unbelievably supportive throughout everything. I could not have asked for a better day, every detail was perfect and what we wanted. Highly recommend.

An amazing team and stunning venue

From the moment we met Dariana, we knew this was the venue for us. The photos of the chapel had already spoken for themselves (and as good as the photos are, it's even better in person!) but what they don't show is the incredible front of house team that work tirelessly to make magic happen.

We first met D in January and five short months later we were getting married. We had a vision of making the grand hall venue feel really intimate, by adding hundreds of lanterns. The venue were incredibly accommodating and helped us our vision to life - with spectacular results. This attitude was consistent throughout. If we could dream it, she'd help us make it happen.

During the run-up to the big day, we were invited to a special evening at the West Rocks hotel to taste the food we'd selected. The chef came to our table during dinner to find out how everything had been and to ask whether there was anything to change - the food was absolutely delicious and it was refreshing to meet a team that cared so passionately about getting it right.

The big day went without a hitch (or, at least, none that we were made aware of). The weather was glorious and we took photos in the park next door with the venue as the backdrop. Everything ran exactly to plan.

The food! Gosh. When you're feeding 50+ people, chicken dishes can often leave the kitchen over cooked and dry - but in this case, everyone was remarking how tender it was. Normally I would have had the chicken too, but the vegetarian options were so tasty that I had to have them both.

We had such a great evening. The band we hired, Joel White and the Diamond Experience, worked within the constraints of the noise limiter and, thanks to the great acoustics, it certainly felt loud enough (everyone was up and dancing).

By the end of the night, everyone was leaving with a smile on their face. We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you All Saints team.

Beautiful Venue

I fell in love with this Chapel as soon as I saw it! Dariana was so helpful and loves anything that's different- we had a barn owl deliver our rings and had a horse and carriage for transport! The only thing I'd recommend for the evening food is to get bacon rolls for your guests, that will ensure they're well fed!

The most magical day, stunning venue

I remember the first day I walked into All Saints chapel at their wedding fair 2 years ago. I was blown away by the stunning venue I cried straight away. From the historic features of the church to the stunning lights and decorations the team have created. It was the perfect venue. Not only that I was greeted by the biggest smile and the friendliest woman. Dariana. She took me under her wing and answered any questions big or small and didn’t once make me feel like I was bothering her. We set our date and booked the venue that day. We got into planning our wedding straight away. Fast forward a few months and COVID hit. All though we didn’t know when we would get our special day D made me feel so at ease and reassured me that no matter what we would get our day and it would be the most special day. Well, what can I say she sure lived up to her promise. D listened to every idea and vision I had and created them for us. We were able to go for our first food tasting and we were blown away at the standard of food and the ideas that we had were bought to life. Finally, our day was fast approaching and still D approached everything with such professionalism and kindness I didn’t feel as nervous as I expected to. Our day was here, and I honestly do not no how to Thank D and the team enough. She went above and beyond for us. The day couldn’t have gone smoother. The church was a vision of such beauty and the whole day was filled with such love and laughter. D and the team did not sit down and catered to our every need. I felt so calm and loved all day. There are not enough words that I could write to thank her for creating everything we ever dreamed of for the most magical/special day of our lives. If you are ever thinking of getting married, I could not recommend All saints enough. Thank you so much D I am so grateful to have had the pleasure of meeting you and have you help me plan our day. Love always from Mr and Mrs Williamson. X

Absolutely superb in every detail

My husband and I were lucky enough to have our wedding here at the end of last year and everything was spectacular. Nothing was too much trouble for Dariana and our day couldn't have gone better. The whole team was detailed, discreet, polite and meticulous. Dariana was a dream to arrange our day with and she offered us so many options and worked with us on every detail. So many of our guests commented on how incredible the venue and the organisation of our day was. I cannot recommend All Saints Chapel enough. They allowed us to have the perfect day and were superb throughout every step of our planning.
