Based in the heart of the countryside that is said to have inspired AA Milne to create the Winnie the Pooh stories, Ashdown Park is a simply stunning wedding venue.
Built in 1987 as a manor house, it has also been a convent before being converted to country house venue in 1993 and it is there that I think it has found it’s true calling. The grounds are immaculate and picturesque with a beautiful photo ready lake just a short walk from the main house. The chapel is just a stunning example of gothic architecture complete with stained glass.
There’s plenty of accommodation (and parking) for your guests and the rooms are stunning, many with views of the rolling hills, so you can be sure that your guests will be as comfortable as your day is fantastic. Speaking from experience of working there on a number of occasions, the service is also a really big selling point. The staff are so helpful and friendly and the quality of the care that they give to their guests is second to none.
There are so many lovely spots for photography both inside and out with the gardens providing the perfect setting for groups of any size as well as romantic portraits of you as a couple. There are even outdoor ceremony venues if that’s what you’d like to make your day perfect.
