Balcombe Place is a beautiful private country house wedding venue set within its own stunning grounds with breathtaking views of the South Downs and its own private drive. With its spacious interior and landscaped grounds, stylish décor and fantastic location, Balcombe Place is the perfect choice for couples looking for old-style country charm with something a little bit different.
The house can host traditional fairy tale weddings or wild eccentric parties – or a little of both! It is a truly flexible setting with no hard and fast rules, so designed to become your home from home. It is down to you how you use the space. With a range of talented suppliers at your fingertips, a healthy dose of creativity and the support of the Balcombe Place team, you can create the day you’ve always dreamed of.
Balcombe Place has six stunning reception rooms, three of which are licensed for cilvil ceremonies. There is plenty of space within the formal gardens, all exclusively yours and ready for your style. Not only does this mean the gorgeous features can be your back drop but you can also play some croquet or even giant jenga on the lawn!
We are able to cater for numbers ranging 20 - 120 guests seated together in one room and space for up to 350 people for your reception or evening party. You can have 350 all day if you wish with the use of a marquee on the lawn.
When booking you will have full access to Balcombe’s very own Little Black Book of suppliers, including everything from talented caterers to entertainers and florists, equipping you with everything you need to design your perfect day within this spectacular space.
You will also benefit from the services of a Coordinator who will be on-hand to offer advice, help with planning and timings and generally offer that sometimes much-needed support. While you will have total flexibility to plan a day that is utterly unique to you, you won’t be left to organise it alone! Balcombe Place will offer as much help as you need, even offering an upgraded package including a dedicated Wedding Planner who can do everything from sourcing and managing suppliers to speech writing and organising bridal party gifts.

We met Emma, our planner, on our first viewing and having had extensive experience in the wedding industry she guided us through the venue and accommodated every idea we already had as well as offering up advice and inspiration to help us visualise our day. Now, once you see it, you can’t unsee it, so don’t bother booking anywhere else to see afterwards.
The venue, the grounds, the team, everything is perfect, and for us, we simply had the most incredible wedding day. Our wedding was delayed from July 2020 to July 2021 due to Covid. That itself could have been tricky, but Emma was absolutely amazing with the rearrangements. The day was well worth waiting for.
Most couples will only have one wedding day, and generally no experience in organising such an event themselves. I cannot speak highly enough of our planner, Emma’s, organisational skills and expertise in every area wedding related. I am in awe of how she pulls everything off so seamlessly – especially given that we are in a pandemic!
Emma, Fo, Grace & Team, you were all amazing. Thank you so much for helping make our dreams come true. We feel so privileged to have had our special day at Balcombe Place. It was everything we could have wished for and more. If we could re-live it over and over again we would, in a heartbeat.
Finally, to add - the photos you see online, are just a glimpse at the grandeur of Balcombe Place. To have a real vision, you need to see it with your own eyes. Go there, walk around, feel it, learn the history of it. Then imagine your most wonderful wedding day. It isn’t hard to do. It is quite simply exquisite.
Thank' you once more, love The Howards XxSent on 10/08/2021

The BEST wedding venue - don't look elsewhere
We had fallen in love with Balcombe Place when we had seen it online, but when we went to view the house in person it was even more impressive. The house is beautifully decorated and has stunning features. The bedrooms are fantastic and the grounds are immaculate. Balcombe Place is such a fairy tale setting to get married in!
We loved that we had the whole house to ourselves for our wedding weekend, and it made our wedding feel more intimate. It was strange having to wait an extra year to show off this perfect venue, but when visiting to finalise our plans, we were so excited and certain every guest would love it. The gorgeous fire place that we were officially married in front of, the stunning music room where we sat and listened to emotional speeches, it was just perfect.
The staff at Balcombe Place complemented the venue and were extremely helpful from start to finish. Emma was incredible and so enthusiastic as a planner in the run up, as well as on the day. Words can't describe just how helpful she was in bringing our ideas to fruition, and overall making wedding planning fun - even during a pandemic! The staff appeared genuinely happy to be working at the venue, and genuinely excited for us as the married couple. Getting married at Balcombe Place really was special and unique – it is clear that it is a bespoke event, and not just another wedding. We would highly recommend the venue, the staff and the surroundings to anybody. We truly had the most wonderful day, and could not imagine it being half as amazing elsewhere. Your wedding is the happiest day of your life and you can only choose one venue – we are so delighted it was Balcombe Place.

As soon as we walked in to Balcombe Place we knew it was our wedding venue, it speaks for itself, it is an incredible, beautiful house.
When we went to first view the house and meet Emma at the end of 2018 I instantly felt that she was the right person to help me on my wedding journey. It was like we was always on the same wave length with each aspect and she was always there to answer my constant emails. She gave us so much confidence in our planning especially when we decided to move it on another year to August 2021. Emma thank you isn’t enough, you have made everything so special for us.
My bridal party stayed with me on the Friday night and it was so amazing to have the house to ourselves, every room is uniquely decorated and so beautiful, everyone who stayed has said how lovely every room is uniquely designed.
Our day couldn’t have gone any better, everything went to plan, our only issue was all our guests drank all our fizz before our wedding breakfast 😅 luckily Emma came to the rescue and saved the day! Even with the weather being a bit wild it didn’t matter, everything was perfect.
All of our guests are still talking about our wedding and wish we could do it all over again, it was the most perfect day and if I could rewind and do it all over again I would do it in a heartbeat.
Thank you Emma and all the staff at Balcombe Place, you made our wedding even more special than we ever could have dreamed 💫Sent on 09/09/2021
