ok it didnt snow but..
Venue Service

By Simon & Liisa, on 17 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Dec 2018

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.

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?!

Our Dream Wedding
Venue Service

By Russell & Rebecca, on 02 May 2017Date of Wedding - 15 Dec 2016

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 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!

Both myself and My now husband Tim chose The George Rye as our wedding venue. Oh wow it was magical. From the first day of booking the venue to the actual big day. The staff were amazing, helpful and so kind. They never made me feel like I was being a 'bridezilla' they made me and my family feel so welcome. We have enjoyed every single second of it and that it down to Natalie and the events team. You are all truly amazing and we cannot thank you enough. We will be back I can promise you that!! Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts! Would thoroughly recommend this team and venue for your wedding or any other special occasion. Can we do it all again?? Xx

Our perfect day at the George in Rye
Venue Service

By Georgina & Wayne Oakley, on 22 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 28 Oct 2016

The George in Rye - this beautiful elegant hotel is set in the heart of Rye town centre, a lovely little historic town with cobbled lanes, which makes the perfect back drop to beautiful wedding photos. The hotel itself is just stunning like a mini Downton Abby it's very classic and chic. The beautiful ballroom is the perfect setting for a wedding it really doesn't need any more frills added to it to make it a wow wedding venue. Good Food and wine are extremely important to myself and my husband!!! and it was a high priority that on our wedding day it was right, the menu choices were amazing and if we wanted anything specific the hotel would accommodate it. The food was all outstanding and the wine choices were of exceptional standard too. Natalie the wedding coordinator at the George was just amazing she made us feel like our wedding was the only wedding that had or ever will take place in the George!! She made it so personal and took care of everything running up too and on the day itself, with personal touches everywhere from her wake up call on the morning of the wedding to when she personally bought us our 1st glass of fizz after the ceremony ( which was very much needed!!) she really was fantastic. I honestly couldn't fault any part of our day and it really was our perfect venue.

Wonderful Wedding venue

By Rachel H, on 26 May 2016

The team at The George were superb. Operationally, the day was faultless. Timings were spot on, the food was smart and delicious and they really did go that extra mile in customer service. I was able to relax throughout the day, safe in the knowledge that the team would do the perfect job. We have received compliments from all our guests for having such a wonderful wedding and we thank The George for their professionalism and expertise.

Wonderful Wedding

By Gabby Brooks, on 24 Apr 2015

Thank you so much for our wonderful wedding. It was a brilliant day and we are so glad that we held it at the George. It is such an exquisite venue, plus your support, staff and service were amazing. I would be happy to recommend the George. I used to work in events and I have not seen such good service as we received, both leading up to the wedding, but also on the day. Everything was perfect.

Perfect wedding day
Venue Service

By Sian Freeman, on 15 Sep 2014

The wedding day itself was perfect and I don’t think either of us could have asked for more. We had the absolute best time and everyone from your team were just wonderful. It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it! Also, we obviously came to The George after being seriously let down by our original venue and I don’t think I could be happier. To say that it was the best thing that happened during the time we were planning the wedding is probably an understatement! The venue is beautiful, the food was divine and the service was second to none. Our entire guestlist have been raving about it and we can’t thank you enough. Once again, thank you. It doesn’t seem enough to just say that but I can’t really put into words how we both feel! We will certainly be back for many years to come!

Best ever Lamb wellington!
Venue Service

By Jenny Collins, on 15 Sep 2014

We just wanted to say thank you so very much for everything you and your team did to make our wedding day so special. Despite some of the plans having to change due to the weather, we had a lovely day and all of our guests really enjoyed it too. We received some great feedback about the venue, the hotel, the ballroom and the food. A lot of people thought the lamb wellington was the best thing ever!

Beautiful to photograph, wonderful venue
Venue Service

By Jodie Chapman, on 15 Sep 2009

I photographed a wedding here last summer and the venue played a very important and successful part in the photographs. Lottie and Mick''s wedding looked beautiful, and the vintage touches of The George combined with the excellent service provided by the staff resulted in a wonderful day. Lottie and Mick''s wedding at The George is featured in the current issue of Cosmo Bride magazine.
