Full Description
Bignor Park is a fabulous, family run wedding venue, epitomising rural elegance in the heart of West Sussex. Tucked quietly away down a half-mile drive, it is a majestic hidden gem with understated style, and romantic charm. At Bignor Park, we believe that your wedding should be all about you as a couple and your dreams for your perfect day. So, we provide the stunning ‘blank canvas’ and inspirational ideas, and your imagination will decide the rest, ensuring that your dream wedding will be unique and unforgettable. We will be there to help you every step of the way to create the best day of your life in our beautiful venue. We also believe that you should have the time and space to enjoy it all, so our wedding bookings are limited to twelve couples per year, and all our weddings have exclusive use per weekend with access two days prior to your day to allow you plenty of time to set up. Our Civil Ceremonies license is outside at the Greek Loggia, part of eleven acres of beautiful grounds incorporating formal gardens, sweeping lawns, the temple and zen pond. Receptions in the rustic and quirky Stables include the Courtyard and Quadrangle, or a marquee or tipi tent reception on the Croquet Lawn makes the most of the panoramic views. Bignor Park offers a magical setting for your perfect day - we look forward to welcoming you. COVID lockdown reassurance: during the two lockdowns when wedding venues had to close due to government restrictions all of our wedding couples (bar one) asked to postpone their weddings and we found new dates for them at no added venue hire fee cost. The couple who were unable to reschedule were refunded their venue hire fee in full.

Our perfect wedding venue - truly a hidden gem
From the moment we drove into Bignor Park back in August 2019 and met Louise for the first time, we knew that it was the perfect venue for our wedding. Nestled in the South Downs, it truly is a hidden gem and a blank canvas; with the Loggia, Quadrangle, and Zen Pond to the beautiful South Lawn, manicured gardens and Stables, we had the flexibility to truly make our day our own and make our vision for our wedding a reality. Louise was our main point of contact and we were so grateful for her kindness, patience, expert advice, flexibility, reassurance and hands-on approach over the eighteen months running up to our wedding. We couldn't have done it without her! When we made the difficult decision to postpone our wedding due to the pandemic, she was really supportive and proactive, making herself available via a phone call or email if we needed her. We would recommend Bignor Park to anyone! Don't hesitate to book.

The whole day went absolutely perfectly
We keep saying that the whole day for us went absolutely perfectly, and we can't thank you enough for being such an integral part of making that happen. We had 100% faith throughout the whole process that you could help us create our vision, and we were right! Although we have so many happy memories of the day, having all our favourite people in one place in such a beautiful setting was unforgettable. Thank you again for being such a calm source of support - you really go above and beyond and we feel so lucky to have stumbled across Bignor Park when we did.

An utterly beautiful venue
We had our wedding at Bignor Park on 17/07/2021 and it was absolutely phenomenal. Right from our first enquiry Louise was welcoming and extremely helpful in working out what we needed and listening to our ideas to help create the perfect day. Bignor Park is an utterly beautiful venue with a huge range of options for your day. we decided to go for a marquee in the courtyard which was more than enough space for our wedding of around 105 people. I would highly recommend this wedding venue to anyone

Such a special place
Thank-you so much for all your help with the wedding. We had the most amazing day. So many people told us that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Bignor was beautiful, and everything was fantastic. We would love to come back again in the future. It is such a special, wonderful place.

The most wonderful place
The most wonderful place, with the most incredible service, care, attention-to-detail and commitment from Louise to make your day special, choosing Bignor Park for you wedding will be one of the best decisions you ever make. The venue, the gardens and the surrounding landscape are beautiful and spectacular. It really is a magical place. Having booked our wedding at Bignor Park in April 2020, in the middle of the first lock down, without even visiting in person, you could forgive us for being a little nervous. We needn't have been. From day one, Louise supported and guided us through every possible detail, leaving no stone unturned with her 10 years' experience as wedding coordinator at Bignor. We felt in such safe hands and no problem or question was too small or insignificant for Louise to support us with. The day itself, too, felt like a breeze thanks to Louise's dedication to ensuring everything goes to plan. We had the most amazing day, and feel truly lucky and grateful to have had our wedding at Bignor and would reassure anyone considering it for their special day, you won't regret it.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

There are so many amazing places for photos in the grounds and gardens, but probably the most stylish is the backdrop of the Georgian house - it has a Mediterranean / Tuscan feel. Wedding photographers are absolutely spoilt for choice!

We couldn't possibly comment!!

What’s your favourite canapé?

I really love a mini yorkshire pudding with beef and horseradish - yummy!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Pizza all the way...

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The colour of the house!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Undoubtedly, weddings take a lot of organising, but actually the most important part is the commitment that each wedding couple is making to each other, either at a civil ceremony in our grounds, or in church before they arrive for their reception - the rest is just a great party!
