Crockstead fields is a lovely little spot tucked away in the East Sussex countryside. We have worked hard to build site elements that fit in with the natural surroundings to provide the perfect festival wedding experience. Our ethos is to create fun, laid back events where you and your guests can enjoy a stress free weekend on site while we run around in the background for you. With the on-site team and our close-knit group of suppliers we have all aspectscovered to deliver your ideal, cost effective wedding.

Your guests enter our section of the beautiful Crockstead Farm estate via a tree lined path and a bridge over a stream. Here you will find the main events field: To your right sits our beautiful 10 x 18m Petal Pole Marquee, lined with coconut matting, dressed tables and classic chiavari chairs. Large bamboo shade lights hang from the central wooden poles and in the corner sits our rustic bar and parquet dancefloor. In front of you, sitting under a cluster of Oak trees, is our hand-built wooden Pagoda, fully licensed for ceremonies and sitting in a natural ampitheatre. To the back of this section is a treehouse chillout and seating area, a perfect space for your guests to sneak off to later in the evening. To your left sits our fire pit area, and scattered around the rest of the field are the naked teepee, crazy golf course, catering tent and all the other elements that make up the field.

On top of this you have full use of our separate camping field, which can be provided with a bell tent village as an optional add on. Within this field sit our compost toilets, hot showers and lighted seating areas. Included in your package are 2 bohemian yurts, each with their own toilet and shower - one of these makes a really nice and on brand option for the honeymoon suite.

We actively encourage you to take advantage of having the site all weekend. Bring some guests along to camp on the Friday or have a post wedding fry up on Sunday with prosecco and garden games; Whatever you want to do, we're here to make it happen.

In terms of catering we have a great range of options available through our sister company Shibui Cafe. Our focus is on fun sharing platters and buffets that complement the venue and help create that carefree, festival atmosphere. We can cover food throughout your stay on site from an evening sit down Indian feast on the Friday, to Saturday canapes, evening pizza and pasta and american pancakes on the Sunday. Like with all our other suppliers, if you want to bring in someone else that is totally fine and we have some great suggestions to help you on your way.

In general we are really excited to get more couples down to this relatively new venue, and to add more names to the growing list of those who have had a great wedding with us here at Crockstead Fields. We look forward to working with you!

Unique festival-style wedding venue

Crockstead fields is set in a beautiful rural location, on a large site with ample space for lots of guests. They also provide a large field for guests to camp on-site, and the whole day from ceremony to afterparty happens in the same location.

The team at Crockstead were always accommodating of our ideas and encouraged us to do it our way; they helped us organise our day in the months preceding and ran through the details with us on consultation calls.

Our wedding was very music-focused, and the team were able to provide a stage for our band, had their own PA, and found us a supplier for silent disco equipment which allowed us to party into the wee hours.

The bar was well-stocked and fairly priced.

Overall we had the most incredible weekend with our guests, which was largely down to the magic of the site.

The perfect day

Never having organised a wedding we were somewhat overwhelmed with the sheer amount of organisation that goes into one.
I can honestly say though, that all venue related issues were made easy by Rowan an Henry.
There are so many worries you have on the run up to the big day, but I can honestly say that the guys at Crockstead fields had everything under control. I was at the venue for a good few days adding our own personal touches on the lead up and I was amazed to see the skill (and colossal amount of work) that Henry and the guys put into getting the place ready for our big day.
The day itself ran seamlessly and we couldn’t have asked for a better wedding. Three months on it is still the talk among our friends and families and the word that is used over and over again is perfect. The site looked incredible. The marquee was hugely spacious. The grounds were beautifully kept. The alter under the trees was the most perfect spot and afforded some much needed cool shade for the service. The camping area was a spacious and super close to the wedding area. The facilities were clean and perfectly ample for our 160 guests. And we loved our little yurt to stay in, it was clean and very comfy and the showers are the best camping showers I’ve ever known.
We honestly could not have asked for a better day, a better venue or a better team of guys to run it all. It is a day we will treasure for the rest of our lives and we are so glad we chose this venue.

Incredibly perfect festival wedding venue

How do I start? We began planning with Henry and Rowan back in 2019 when we visited the site that Winter. After the devastating effect of COVID we watched their efforts and business grow over the next couple of years until, finally, we were able to have the wedding which surpassed all our expectations July 2022. The site is beautifully quiet, rural and eco-conscious. Ever-evolving projects keep popping up and we have seen the birth of the camping fields with the addition of outdoor showers, compost toilet block, fire pit and outdoor chill area. A huge part of this ethos comes through in things which are upcycled, remade, or built by hand. Everything we were missing when we relocated to site the day before our wedding was taken care of and we wanted for nothing.
I will remember every moment of this gorgeously rustic place until the day I am no longer here and we have been told by our guests repeatedly that they adored the day in its entirety. I hope to still come camping here in the future and revive some of our emotions of the day.
If you want love, friends, family, nature and an emotionally caring and enthusiastic company then THIS is the place for you. It's very special to us.

Thank you Henry & Rowan

Festival wedding bliss!

Crockstead Fields was the perfect venue for our relaxed festival style wedding. There is a licensed pagoda for the ceremony, a beautiful marquee to fit a large crowd and a spacious camping field for guests. There are lots of lovely touches around the site and Henry seems full of ideas for improvements and extras.

Henry and the team were very accommodating of our specific requests and were able to pass on information about partners and trusted providers. We were in contact regularly and always felt that things were in hand.

On the day the team were helpful and reactive when things needed to be done or things needed fixing or adjusting. My wedding guests all commented on how lovely everyone running the show was.

The yurt accommodation on site for us was exceptional. The perfect bridal suite! Other guests enjoyed staying in bell tents and it all added to the whole experience.

In addition to the wonderful venue Henry also did our catering. He made us an absolutely banging vegetarian feast and people are still talking to me about the rainbow slaw!!

I wish I could do it all again.

Festival Wedding of our Dreams!

Our wedding at Crockstead was fantastic. We first viewed the site in the depths of winter with mud unto our ankles, but we knew there was something special about it and believed in Henry's vision. We had to postpone by a year due to Covid which was seamlessly managed by the team with great communication all the way through.

The site really started to take shape in the days leading up to the big day, with bunting, massive flags, games and all sorts to really add to the festival vibe. As the guests arrived they all mentioned how amazing the site looked and we instantly had the chilled festival atmosphere we wanted for our wedding.

Everything went completely smoothly thanks to Henry and his team, they all worked incredibly hard to keep everyone happy. We had a three course curry which was better than any Indian restaurant - lots of interesting and exotic flavours and options for vegans and people who don't like spicy food. We didn't have to worry about anything on the day, the event manager sorted out issues as they arose, leaving us to enjoy the occasion.

The night ended with a bang - we had three bands and a couple of DJ's and the party went on to the early hours. All in all it was exactly what we wanted, we wouldn't change a thing if we were to do it again.

Thanks Henry and team for the best day of our lives!
