Boasting a stunning location on the waterfront in Brighton, East Sussex, Mercure Brighton Seafront Hotel is an elegant hotel wedding venue. This Grade II-listed Victorian building is incredibly charming, from its architecture to its interiors, and ideal for those who wish to say "I do" with the sound of waves crashing in the background. Only a stone's throw away from the promenade, there are plenty of beautiful spaces that are perfect for capturing memories with your photographer.

Facilities and Capacity

The building in which Mercure Brighton Seafront Hotel stands today was built in 1864 and has played a part in many peoples' lives over the years. Seamlessly blending period features, like the grand Regency staircase, with contemporary elements, such as stylish light fixtures, this venue can transport you from era to era. There are four event spaces peppered throughout the hotel, all of which are licensed to hold a civil ceremony, which means you need not leave this setting of dreams for a moment. The ballroom is the grandest of all. Your guests will know a sophisticated soirée is on the cards from the moment they see the high ceilings, ornate columns, dazzling chandeliers, and mirrored arches. Hosting up to 180 people for the ceremony and 150 for an evening reception of dining and dancing, all of your nearest and dearest can get an invitation. After the celebrations have come to an end, you and your guests are welcome to retire to one of the 123 modern guest rooms. For the newlyweds, you deserve nothing less than the best, which the Junior Suite definitely offers. The splendour of the room can be found in the luxurious furnishings, the king-sized bed, and the balcony with views out to the sea, amongst others.

absolutely lovely everything

On my behalf I can say that it was absolutely lovely-everything –the venue and mainly you guys. Staff were amazing-everyone was saying how professional and prompt the service was… and food was great as well…
Antonio, you were so calm and reassuring-thank you -we enjoyed the whole day very much….without you it would not have been that great…

We said to each other that we would have not changed anything about the day and that we were very lucky that we found and chose your venue for our wedding…all our guests absolutely loved it…I think that I keep repeating myself but it is only because we had the most amazing time…

If we could do it all over again we would do it in a blink of the eye…anyway we will officially email you at some point…

Thank you so much…hope we haven’t forgotten anything….

Also, your bosses are very lucky to have such an amazing, professional and dedicated staff.

We had such a great fabulous day

Wow where do I start ,from the first moment of booking you (Antonio) were on hand to help me with my daft questions and provide guidance when I needed it. Everything about the day was amazing! The bridal room was lovely,the ceremony room looked fabulous, food amazing. (everyone commented how nice it was) The staff were lovely. You personally were amazing in organizing everyone, helping me with my nerves and making sure the day ran smoothly which it 100% did thanks to you! I must mention also Ola, she was so sweet regarding the cake. The ballroom at the wedding breakfast looked stunning and in the evening even more of a wow factor.
We had such a great fabulous day everything about the venue was amazing.

Brilliant day

We had a brilliant day and just wanted to thank you (Antonio) and the team for all your efforts. Our family and friends also want to pass on their thanks to the Mercure.

We had a short time to organise the wedding but we found that you where very helpful with the whole process and made it simple for us to organise. I thought Rebecca did a great job on the day too. Special mention to bar staff Alex and co who where very good natured and made it fun for the evening guests.
