Where do we start..
By Craig & Hannah Hampson, on 26 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 23 Mar 2019
Where do we start?! From beginning to end our experience of Southdowns Manor was incredible. We were blown away when we saw the venue and fell in love with it immediately. Our guests have all said what a lovely day they had and how good the food was!
The staff's service in particular cannot be faulted. Our wedding planner Lia was so lovely and helped our day run so smoothly! All of the staff were so attentive and thoughtful - there were so many lovely little touches from them, from our own personalised cake knife, to our desert in the shape of two swans, to retiring for the evening in the honeymoon suite with our bath pre-filled for us!
Thank you so much for an amazing wedding, we loved every minute!

Simply as close to perfect as our wedding day could have been.
From our first tentative visit to leaving as husband and wife we have been nothing but impressed at the care, kindness, and friendly professionalism of everyone we’ve met. Friends and family had such a wonderful day and couldn’t speak highly enough of the venue, food and overall experience. Special thanks to Lia for putting us both at ease, guiding us through the process and looking after us so attentively on the day - keep doing what you’re doing Lia - our day wouldn’t have been the same without you. Southdowns Manor is clearly a successful and busy wedding venue that runs like clockwork. To their credit, everyone involved managed to make our day a very personal and special one.
Thank you for the memories
The venue was stunning
By Pati & Josh, on 26 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 16 Mar 2019
We had an absolutely brilliant day and all our guests really enjoyed themselves. The venue was stunning, it was all we could've wished for and more, and everything from the food to the music and all the little details in between were perfect! We were so glad to have Lia on the day with us, she made the day run so smoothly and ensured we were happy throughout. All the staff were amazing in fact - from Natalie for helping us book the venue and dealing with a million questions from us, Kate who guided us through the initial planning stages, down to the waiting and bar staff on the day.
We couldn't be more grateful to have had our dream wedding at Southdowns Manor. Thank you again so much for everything!
By Allan and Sammy, on 25 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 10 Mar 2019
From our first visit to Southdowns manor, we both knew that it was the place for us. From initial visit to the whole planning of our wedding, nothing was too much trouble and every detail catered for. The day itself couldn’t have gone any better, the staff were amazing and the food was amazing. The venue is stunning and we absolutely loved everything and couldn’t fault the place. Thank you guys.

Southdowns Manor is an amazing venue...beautiful!
By Sarah Jane wicks, on 08 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Feb 2019
Our wedding was amazing and it wouldn’t of been what is was without Kate. Kate was so fantastic ! She was accommodating to all our needs. Nothing was too little for her...she made it so relaxed so much so that I had nothing to worry about on the day, as I knew it would all be perfect under her guidance. All the staff were amazing. Katie was always checking up on us to make sure everything was going ok and let us know what was going on in the evening...thank you so much Katie you were fabulous!!!
Southdowns Manor is an amazing venue...beautiful! I would highly recommend!
I must now say something about the food...so many comments were made about how amazing the food was and I have to agree. It was delicious and so much care was taken to cater for allergies!
Thank you so much to the team! Awesome!!
The venue itself is stunning even on a rainy day!
By Mr and Mrs Farley, on 02 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 24 Nov 2018
Kate and her team could not have done more for us and our guests. They made us feel completely at ease all throughout the day and made us feel more of their friends than customers.
We may be being biased but I think the food was the best food I have eaten at a wedding venue and the portions sizes were perfect (by that we mean massive).
The venue itself is stunning even on a rainy day!
In summary our wedding day was all we could have hoped it to be and a big part of this was due to Kate and all the other people at Southdowns manor we probably never got a chance to meet.
So thank you!
Our day was amazing from start to finish
By Mr and Mrs White, on 20 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 10 Nov 2018
Our day was amazing from start to finish. We arrived on the Friday to have food and drinks with our nearest and dearest and it was just so lovely, the staff and food was amazing.
I will never forget how amazing Kate has been from start to finish. The day could not have been more perfect, I gave her our bits and bobs that we had bought and made and she had laid everything out with so much attention to detail. She brought our vision to life and helped me remain calm.
All our guests had commented on how lovely the venue was, the food was great and the portion is so generous. The staff and service was exceptional, we will not forget our wedding day and that’s all down to every single person who was involved in our wedding day. All our love,
Southdowns Manor is the place where your wedding d
By Kim & Chris, on 07 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 26 Oct 2018
Southdowns Manor is the place where your wedding dreams become a reality. We cannot fault any aspect of our experience, from our initial tour and booking our wedding, up to the incredible day itself, which far exceeded anything we were expecting. All the staff are so personable and really get to know you and what your needs and requirements are. Kate, our wedding planner, was professional but also felt like a friend. I'm sure she has done hundreds of weddings but she made us feel as though our wedding was special, showing interest and excitement in everything we did. Southdowns Manor has a wonderful atmosphere, I had an over whelming emotional reaction to it when we first viewed it as a potential wedding venue, we knew immediately that this was where we wanted to get married. The food is sensational and you get plenty of it, the rooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable and attention to detail goes above and beyond what you would expect. There were many surprises throughout our day which Southdowns arranged, adding to the enjoyment. We will never forget our wedding day and will always be thankful that we found this remarkable venue. Southdowns Manor will always be our "Happy Place" from now on!
Thank you for absolutely everything.

We fell in love with the venue as soon as we found it online, the first visit we knew it was perfect for us! Everything from our first communication to our last has been truly incredible. We can’t thank everyone enough who had to deal with our questions and planning from the start, especially Lois who kept everything so perfect in the build up and on the day. We felt so relaxed all day, the food was incredible everyone’s needs were met with everyone enjoying their meals, pudding and our hog roast in the evening. Everything was so perfect from arrival with the bridal party to breakfast in the morning with our friends and family the morning after the wedding. Thank you for absolutely everything.
It really was everything we could have ever wished
By Mr&Mrs Ryan, on 23 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Oct 2018
We would like to give ALL staff, but especially Lois our wedding planner, a huge thank you for making our big day as special as possible! It really was everything we could have ever wished for and more. Every detail was carefully planned out and executed by the team to perfection. We were looked after throughout the whole process, from the initial planning meeting up until the last minute on the wedding night, so well. The whole team are so attentive and friendly so we felt so at ease throughout the whole day. We were made to feel so special all day, even down to having the bath ran for the end of the night and a bottle of fizz put in the room. That really was totally unexpected and made the end of the night amazing too.
The food is absolutely incredible! We had so many comments throughout the day saying how amazing the food was and how good the portion size was too!
Lois, we'd like to thank you specially for making the whole planning process run so smoothly, and also making it fun! You are a total asset to Southdowns Manor.
We wish we could do it all over again! Love Mr&Mrs Ryan
What can we say other than perfection.
By Mr and Mrs Littlejohn, on 03 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Sep 2018
What can we say other than perfection. Kate has been with us from the beginning and nothing has ever been too much to ask, when your wedding planner is as excited as you for your wedding you must be in the right place, I think Kate may have even ordered the weather for us.
Thank you for the perfect day
