ok it didnt snow but..
otherwise this was pretty much a perfect winter wedding in a very scenic town. All thanks to Natalie and her team at The George In Rye who from day 1 of our planning were super efficient and helpful and who on the day were superbly organised and attentive to our needs. My mum did high end silver service waitressing for nearly 40 years and she was very impressed at everything she saw and all our thirty guests really enjoyed the day (beyond stuff people just say to the married couple) in large part due to the venue and staff.Sent on 17/12/2018

Our wedding day
It was a joy working with Natalie and the events team at The George. The day ran so perfectly seamless for us and your attention to detail was superb. Our friends have spoken so highly about the venue and the day, many have told us it was "the best wedding they have ever attended". What more could i possibly say?!Sent on 15/08/2018

Our Dream Wedding
Russell & I met 8 years ago & in 2015 we had our little boy, my first Mothers Day Russell proposed to me in March 2016, we decided we were going to get married that year. I searched and searched for ‘that special venue’ and then I came across the George in Rye and instantly fell in love, this was my perfect venue...it was quirky, had rooms for all my guests to stay, amazing food & wine, it ticked all the boxes. We went to view the venue and met Natalie the wedding organiser for the George & it was even more perfect, they had our December date so we booked! Natalie said the venue was even more special at xmas with all the fairy lights and xmas decorations, she did not disappoint. Natalie is a credit to the George she couldn’t do more to help & make sure your wedding day was everything and more. On the day of the wedding I can’t tell you how many guests said how beautiful the venue was & how amazing the food was, the day was literally perfect! The photographer was just bowled over with how beautiful the venue looked & was so excited to be working our wedding as she knew the pictures would shine. I wish I could say in words how special our day was and how happy we are that we found the George. I will go back to the George every year to mark our anniversary, it truly is the most beautiful venue and Natalie will ensure everything goes perfect for your day! I can’t thank the George enough for giving us our dream wedding!Sent on 02/05/2017
