With breath-taking grounds, a spectacular stately home and a charming 13th-century village church, Firle Place in Sussex is the perfect place for a traditional country wedding. Set in the gorgeous South Downs Park, an event here is guaranteed to be unforgettable with four different sites for wedding receptions. 

The beauty of a wedding at Firle Place is the fact that you can make your day absolutely tailored to your vision and size of wedding. The Georgian Riding School venue  will provide a delightful setting for those wanting a barn-style wedding within the grounds of a private estate. It combines elegance with rusticity perfectly. The grade II listing building, which comes complete with exposed oak beams, fairy lit ceiling, giant foliage chandeliers, full sized olives trees, draping system and stunning bar, can be arranged to suit your wedding party perfectly and comfortably seating up to 250 guests.

The Georgian Riding School has extensive outdoor space including beautiful croquet lawns, tree-lined Cherry Walk and lakeside setting, perfect for a drinks reception. With any number of exquisite photo opportunities, you’re sure to get the most romantic of shots. And if you just can’t get enough of the Estate's gorgeous gardens, Firle  Place also offers several settings for marquee-style weddings, all surrounded by the best of the East Sussex countryside. Choose from the intimate Herb Garden and Orchard, or the private gardens of Lord and Lady Gage, The South Lawns & Dell Gardens. 

The excellent, dedicated wedding team can recommend a variety of local suppliers, from caterers to marquee hire companies, florists, photographers and local accommodation. Should you want your wedding managed and styled also, then we have a package to cater for all such needs. 

We want to offer our couples an exclusive experience and so we limit the number of weddings hosted. Therefore, to avoid disappointment and to secure your dream country wedding, do not hesitate to contact them today!
