For a country wedding that stands out from the crowd, look no further than Bluebell Railway in Sussex. Far from its original purpose, this heritage railway has opened its doors to couples and is now providing some of the most unique, memorable, and intimate weddings around.
Right from booking, you’ll have the unwavering support of Bluebell Railway's dedicated Wedding Advisor. With their help, you’ll be able to design a beautifully bespoke wedding, with colour schemes, registrars, floral arrangements, and menus all carefully planned.
With multiple venue options at Bluebell Railway, one of the biggest choices you’ll make is where to host your ceremony and reception. When it comes to the vows, you’ll have the selection of either the 60-capacity Birch Grove Suite at Sheffield Park Station, or the smaller 40-capacity Waiting Room at Horsted Keynes Station. Both are stylishly vintage venues, the perfect place for a quirky couple to wed.
From there you’ll make your way to the train platform for a drinks reception, as your afternoon guests arrive. Waiting for a train never felt so good! And from there it’s all aboard the steam train, as you sit down for a wedding breakfast with a difference! Journeying through the gorgeous and scenic Sussex countryside, you’ll be treated to either a luxury silver-service luncheon, or a traditional afternoon tea – the choice is yours. For those with big guest lists, adjoining carriages can be attached to accommodate everyone.
The fun doesn’t end as the train pulls back into the station. Tranquil meadows fringed by woodland areas at our stations offer flexible outdoor spaces for both receptions and photographs, so why not hire a marquee, or simply put on a BBQ for your guests come the evening?
If the weather doesn’t want to play nice, you can also head back to the Birch Grove Suite for a reception to remember.
A unique and charming atmospheric experience, a wedding on the Bluebell Railways is guaranteed to be unforgettable.For more information, drop the team an email today.

Lorna and Ben
Bluebell Railway vintage inspired unusual wedding
The venue was spectacular, the staff were wonderful. Ben and I felt special and magical on the day the the photographs came out brilliantly because of the wonderful selection of interesting and varied backdrops and props that provided great material for our photographer. Our guests had a wonderful time and all genuinely looked forward to and we're excited about the day. If you want something remarkable and special and memorable and authentic, this is it! One warning: Julia the wedding organiser takes a bit of getting used to!Sent on 06/09/2014
