About Nymans

Staplefield Road, Handcross
West Sussex, RH17 6EB

With glorious views across the West Sussex countryside, a wedding ceremony at Nymans is an intimate and unforgettable experience. With just a few ruins remaining from the original mansion built in the 1920s, Nymans is now one of the National Trust’s premier gardens and its pristine lawns and gothic features would make for a truly unique wedding venue.

When booking with Nymans, you can host both your ceremony and post-ceremony drinks & canape reception into the late afternoon with them before moving on for your evening celebrations if you wish.

Licensed to hold wedding ceremonies beneath their soaring arches of their Loggia within the Sunk Garden, you can say ‘I do’ to the person you love at an intimate ceremony, surrounded by rose clad walls and beautiful scenery. After your ceremony, you can relax on the lawns with your loved ones and take in the beautiful views while you capture some unforgettable wedding photos.

One of the benefits of hosting your wedding ceremony in such a unique location such as Nymans is the flexibility to create a completely bespoke day. Whilst perfect for an intimate affair, you could also potentially have an unlimited number of guests seated in the Sunk Garden's secluded lawns. With your dedicated Wedding Co-ordinator on hand to help you with every step of the way, the limit to a wedding at Nymans really is your imagination.

A wonderful setting for our big day
Venue Service

By Joshua Wilde, on 03 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Jul 2019

My wife and I both agree, without a doubt that Nymans was the best choice of venue, for our wedding day. Not only was the gardens a wonderful setting for our big day, but the efficiency and calm approach of the team at Nymans (Sophie in particular), made sure that we were able to enjoy the day, without concern or worry. Thank you.

I cannot think of a more picturesque setting
Venue Service

By Hannah & Samuel, on 21 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Sep 2018

Our wedding at Nymans went perfectly and Sophie, the coordinator, was there to help at every step of the way. It really helped to have somebody who had already thought of all the minute logistics that I’m not well-suited to planning and the day went very smoothly. We saw and booked the venue during January, and even then it was easy to tell that it would be gorgeous. No words can explain how beautiful it actually was in September, though. I honestly cannot think of a more picturesque setting for a wedding and this also made things simple for me as essentially no extra decoration was needed! There is nothing I would change about our day and much of that is down to having the perfect venue.

I can honestly say it was absolutely perfect!
Venue Service

By Katie & Alan, on 26 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Sep 2018

We got married at Nymans on the 1st September and I can honestly say it was absolutely perfect! - And that was all thanks to Sophie, the Wedding Co-ordinator at Nymans. Sophie was such a great help, both in the lead up to and on the day itself, answering all questions we had promptly and liaising with our suppliers to assure everything went smoothly. The Loggia and Sunk Garden was stunningly beautiful and there was so many places to take great photos - we were spoilt for choice. We were so lucky with the weather too. Even now our friends and family talk about how beautiful the venue was and how relaxed the day was. Alan and I can't thank Sophie and all the staff at NymanS enough. We had the best day and our memories there will last a life time.

Our time at Nymans was terrific...
Venue Service

By Simon & Jazz, on 01 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 18 Aug 2018

We are still basking in the joyful delight of the entire weekend. Our time at Nymans was terrific, due entirely to the hard work of yourself and all the others blessed to find themselves centered at this special place. Thank you.

It feels so much more special than any other venue
Venue Service

By Laura & Gavin, on 08 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 11 Aug 2018

We held our ceremony in August 2018 in the beautiful Sunk Garden at Nymans, The setting is absolutely gorgeous and the National Trust site feels so much more special than any other venue we looked at in Sussex. Sophie was absolutely fantastic from the moment we first showed interest in Nymans through to the hug and well wishes she gave us as we left on our way to the reception. Having Sophie was like having our own personal wedding planner. She is passionate, knowledgeable and ensured our day ran without a hitch! With 7 years experience working at Nymans I felt completely safe in her hands. Thank you to Sophie and the Nymans team.

The Nymans setting was absolutely stunning...
Venue Service

By Brad and David, on 11 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Aug 2018

My husband and I got married at Nymans on the 4th August 2018. Like anyone getting married we had many worries and concerns but also a lot of excitement. We were anxious about the weather and if everything would go to plan. Would everyone be where they were supposed to be at the right time? How would everything look on the day when our guests arrived? With Sophie as Nymans wedding planner, there was absolutely no need to worry. An added bonus was that the weather was almost too hot! The Nymans setting was absolutely stunning. Sophie was professional from beginning to end but also very friendly, funny and has a calming way about her. Our day went ahead without a glitch and that's all thanks to Sophie. We would recommend anyone to get married here and along with getting married at the gorgeous Nymans, you get Sophie as your wedding planner. Thank you Sophie and all staff that worked with her to make our day perfect!

We both highly recommend Nymans...

By Keara & Ezra, on 26 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2018

We had the most fantastic wedding day at Nymans. It is a stunning setting, creating a relaxed and romantic atmosphere. Sophie went above and beyond both before and on our special day. She's very experienced and it shows - any hurdles that came along were promptly dealt with. We especially loved how she decorated our cake last minute! We both highly recommend Nymans as a venue - and with the assistance of Sophie you'll feel completely at ease.

We liked contributing to the National Trust
Venue Service

By Lesley & Gerome, on 13 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2018

Our wedding at Nymans Gardens was perfect. Firstly working with Sophie was a huge weight off of our shoulders. Not only is she lovely to work with she was also helpful, organised and patient with all of our queries during the year of planning to accommodate to our needs. The staff at Nymans were also very kind and helpful to us in the days leading up to the wedding as well as on the day. The location itself, not just as a venue for the ceremony, is just breathtaking with the beautiful gardens and being surrounded in nature. Then you have the stunning architecture of the old building and the walls around the grounds. You will be spoilt for choice on where to take photographs, that is for sure. We were also blessed with the beautiful British sunshine on the day, that combined with the amazing staff at Nymans, overall we would not change a thing about our wedding. Lastly, it also meant much more that we were contributing towards a National Trust garden, especially with it being such a naturally stunning place, it feels good to contribute to its preservation. We will definitely visit Nymans again in the future for a nice day out.

We can always go back and stand on the steps
Venue Service

By Bethan & Brett, on 21 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 14 Jul 2018

The venue was like a fairy tale and the staff were really helpful - especially Sophie who helped keep the day running smoothly. We love the fact we can go back and stand on the steps of the beautiful Loggia were we said I do.

We had the most wonderful day...

We wanted to say a massive thank you for ensuring the smooth running and organisation of our wedding day at Nymans. We had the most wonderful day - the sunshine helped too! Nymans will forever be remembered as the place we became Mr & Mrs. Thank you for making that possible.

The gardens were everything we could have hoped...
