The 'old house', as it’s called by those on this glorious 12,000-acre Sussex estate, remains the home of the Earl and Countess of March & Kinara. The Regency state apartments, however, are available to those looking for a quintessentially English backdrop to their big day. Within them, couples will find the dramatic and sizeable Ballroom, which sets the scene for cinematic civil ceremonies or lavish long-table wedding breakfasts. Diverse menu options range from canapés and bowl food through to set menus tailored to the seasons. Exclusive use is the way forward here, which along with the venue’s butler-led service, should help to make things feel rather special on the big day.
