We had the best day

Brighton College was an incredible venue, full of lovely areas where you can have beautiful photographs and also with the benefit of all being behind a gate so only your loved ones are there with you - plus massively safe for kids to have free reign to run around without having to worry.

Lucy, the venue wedding manager was absolutely incredible both in the lead up and also on the day, she’s very calm and approachable and made us feel really relaxed. Adrian and Fran on the day also ensured the service was perfect from start to finish - we couldn’t believe the standard of the food, honestly felt like it was such good quality and restaurant standard - we’re still getting complemented on it today.

Overall you absolutely cannot go wrong with booking this venue and the fact they only have weddings outside of term time makes it feel like a much more exclusive venue as the number of weddings each year is more limited.

Best day of our lives ❤️

Amazing venue and staff

We couldn’t have chosen a better venue for our wedding day. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, as is the great hall. Lucy was really lovely and incredibly helpful, and the catering team did an amazing job whipping up an all-vegan menu that all our guests enjoyed. Thanks again for everything!

Brighton was our perfect venue!

Thank you so much for making our wedding day run without a hitch. It was so lovely to know that you had it all under control. We had so many people say to us after the wedding how professional you were! Brighton College was our perfect venue - everyone was so well looked after and it looks stunning in our photographs. It is a day we will never forget and we would do it in a heart beat again!
