The most stunning venue!

We had the most amazing time at Sandon Manor for our wedding back in August. I can't recommend both the wedding venue or the accommodation enough.

We had the manor house for the whole weekend. It was so fun getting ready there with all of the girls in the morning and having the day after the wedding to chill with our family.

The venue itself is stunning and the made the perfect backdrop to our fusion wedding. The team were absolutely amazing, great communication throughout the process and things couldn't have gone more smoothly on the day.

A massive thank you to Holly, Tom and the rest of the team! It was better than we ever imagined!

Incredible venue, amazing staff - couldn't recommend it enough

We had the most wonderful weekend. It was truly better than we could've ever imagined, from start to finish. The day was totally seamless - I'm not sure how the team did it! They managed to make the whole experience stress-free for us.

The incredible venue itself, the planning process, the staff, the attention to detail, the list goes on and on - were all impeccable.

We loved all the different areas we were in, all perfect for different reasons, we love that they all sort of had their own vibe but still all tied together. The gorgeous ceremony hall, the amazing gardens with Sandon as the backdrop, the impressive barn and lastly the house itself which is just great for your bridal party to enjoy the weekend in.

We can't stop crying at how perfect it all was - we couldn't have a venue more 'us'. All our guests couldn't believe how beautiful it was!

A perfect venue for a wedding

We got married at the end of September and we loved Sandon Manor. Having the venue for the whole weekend was dream- a family get together on the Friday, a wedding morning of dreams in the Dovecote with the girls on the Saturday and a day two party on the Sunday made the whole weekend feel very special.

Holly and Tom were a dream team and we can’t thank them enough for everything they did for us. They made us feel at ease and made the day go so smoothly- thank you!

My only piece of feedback is about the security that we encountered over the weekend. They were very overbearing and harsh on the Saturday night to a couple of our guests (including me, the bride!) which was disappointing.

Apart from that- a perfect weekend. Make the most of the manor as it is so beautiful- and the village is a great place for a Sunday morning hangover walk too!!

Thank you Holly and Tom xxx

Personal, flexible and 5 star

We found Sandon Manor before it even became the incredible wedding venue it is today.

After viewing seven venues across the whole of the South East we knew this was our dream venue from it's relaxed, personal staff as well as the best accommodation we've ever seen and outstanding setting.

It gives you the whole weekend to relax. Many venues we saw felt like a business (one in one out). It is luxury and rustic at the same time, not corporate in any way and is certainly not a wedding factory!

We got married on the 16th September 2023 and stayed in the beautiful manor house for the weekend with all our nearest and dearest. This turned a wedding into a holiday.

It was a privelage to feel like lord and lady of the manor. The medieval barn is a masterpiece but be sure to fill it with all the best people to make it an unforgettable experience.

In the lead up, Kate, Holly and Silke responded so quickly and efficiently to all our many questions and you could really feel the personal, family touch. The day and the day before, Tom and Amy made sure that everything ran like clock work and moved things round, where required to make the space worked how we needed it.

We couldn't thank you all enough for providing us with the most beautiful venue, grounds and accommodation on the best day of our lives.

Lots of love from Charlotte & Chris xxx

The best venue!

We recently had our Wedding at Sandon Manor and could not recommend them highly enough as both a venue and accommodation for both the Bride and Groom and your Wedding Party. We spent the weekend in the manor and got married outside in the courtyard which are both gorgeous! We had our wedding breakfast in the medieval barn which is also stunning. The venue has recently been refurbished to a really high standard and is the perfect venue for old meets new! The service from the team at Sandon is outstanding and they went above and beyond to make our day seamless and special to us. From start to finish we could not fault them, and have the most wonderful memories to cherish from our Wedding weekend!

Easter Weekend Intimate Wedding

We had an intimate wedding at Sandon Manor over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend.
The house was the perfect back drop to our wedding as well as housing all our family and a dog comfortably. The Sandon Manor team are a delight to work with and Marianne in particular went out of her way at to make sure we were comfortable.
We would have stayed forever if we could!

We had the best day!

We had the best day celebrating our wedding reception at Sandon Manor. Getting ready in the beautiful house and Dovecot, then returning to the barn for our drinks reception, food and dancing - it was brilliant. Communication from Kate and Holly was excellent and they really understood what we wanted for our wedding. We had booked the house for the whole weekend too and loved that we, and the guests that were also staying could pop back (the security team for the house and the barn were fantastic too). We were Sandon Manor's first wedding but you felt like they had done it 100 times over and if anything didn't go to plan, we certainly didn't notice.

One of the big selling points for us was the separate (but not separate) dance floor. So many guests said how nice it was that they could still sit around and chat but still see the dance floor and hear the music in the background. The dance area was just the right size for us and our friends and family to show off some serious moves.

Thank you to Holly and all of the team, and extended team, at Sandon Manor. Our wedding day was filled with love, laughter, drinks and LOTS of dancing.

Historically beautiful, countryside wedding venue with a team of professional organisers.

I felt so very lucky to be able to get married here. It is not often you come across a carefully restored 12th century Tithe barn. With the wedding set up it really looked incredible. We had a large gathering of people and the venue still felt very comfortable. The options for space and photos also mean that guests can enjoy bubbles outside while you as a couple can take a bit of time for pictures etc. A team of such friendly local people were involved in the set up, service and general organisation throughout. We used a local caterer and the quality of food was outstanding, catering to such a range of tastes.
