It's no surprise that one of the UK's coolest spots would be home to such an effortlessly chic wedding venue. For couples who want to mix it up on their wedding day and choose somewhere a little different, Rockwater in Hove is a stylish space with an authentic concept and menu which nods to its seaside location.
With a glass-fronted facade delivering stunning views of the water and a beautiful design scheme which nods to the likes of Soho House with a palette of soft tones, vintage and mid-century furniture and statement lighting, it's an exceptionally sophisticated backdrop for any out-of-the-ordinary wedding day.
There are two main spaces to hire, starting with The Lodge which spans much of the main restaurant. Here, you can host between 15 and 120 guests in a lounge style space. What makes this option really special is the retractable roof, which can transform your gathering from day to night leading out onto a festoon lit patio complete with Rockwater ski gondolas offering extra seating options, as well as a food truck, for a different spin on your wedding breakfast.
Or, why not take a look at the roof terrace which can host 12 to 100 guests seated, or up to 200 standing. From here, guests can enjoy the best views in the house of the stretching coastline and thanks to another retractable roof, it's a great venue space come rain or shine.
Obviously, a major factor for choosing Rockwater for your big day is the food. While occasion menus can be developed with the team, expect all that Rockwater is known for including dishes cooked over the grill, sharing boards, fresh seafood and unique dining concepts which involve outdoor installations such as the Burger Truck and Shack by the Shore.
