The setting was our favourite!
We were married at the Crown Lodge in November 2022; we chose to have our ceremony outside which made for a truly spectacular setting surrounded by golden and auburn trees and an atmospheric mist hanging over the Downs. The setting was one of many of our (and our guests') favourite things! Inside the barn, Steph and Kylie were right in that it didn't need much decoration as it was already festooned with fairy lights and other cute touches (like the "Happily Ever After" sign) - we had almost everything we needed and could hire little extras like table numbers. Steph and Kylie were incredibly supportive in ensuring that our day turned out just how we'd planned. From our initial contact and first visit through to collecting our things the next morning, nothing was too much bother. We'd like to thank them and the other staff who made our special day a reality!

We would change anything about our wedding day
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for everything! From the moment we viewed Crown Lodge back in 2018 to finally getting to have our wedding day this year you were just wonderful. Our day was everything we ever imagined and more, your team were all incredible and having you there on the day was so special. I would highly recommend Crown Lodge to anyone looking for a wedding venue. There isn't a single thing we would change about our wedding day and we feel so grateful for all of your help and guidance along the way.

amazing venue
Words cannot describe how amazing this venue is. If you wanted a quirky, rustic, outdoor setting but don’t want to have a traditional barn style wedding, then this is the venue for you. Stephanie, Kylie and the team are just amazing. They give you all their years of expertise. They were great at communicating, replying to any email (with all my random questions) really quickly. We had total faith that if anything had gone wrong throughout the day, they would have just sorted it with no fuss. It’s great the venue allows you to bring in your own caterers, so you can do whatever wedding style you want. And the views across the Downs are just stunning. So many amazing photo opportunities. All our guests kept commenting how wonderful the venue is. We couldn’t have picked a better venue, and we actually feel sad that it’s over and we won’t see it again. We would 100% recommend Crown Lodge.

We honestly can't thank you enough, you're amazing
Hi Kylie. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your part in making our day the most perfect and incredible wedding day we could have asked for. From start to finish both you and Stephenie were absolutely amazing, on the day you made us feel super relaxed and comfortable and that was all we wished for. Crown lodge is always going to have a special part in our hearts and we couldn't have done it without you. As soon as we knew there was a wedding venue on the Wye downs we knew it was going to be the place we wanted to get married, and it was beyond all our dreams. We honestly can't thank you enough, you're amazing!! Take care and best wishes Tasha and Lee Mr and Mrs Dampier 😬🥺

The team made the day so magical
Crown Lodge is such a beautiful place. We searched for 8 years for a venue that allowed us everything we wanted, and we had the most magical day. Stephanie, Kylie and the team were just outstanding. They completely understood everything we wanted, no matter how bizarre or out-there, and the day flowed so smoothly. They looked after my husband and I beautifully (making sure we ate and drank too!) My mum fell severely ill the week before we got married, she was in the ICU and was unable to make it on the day. The team were so understanding, and had we wanted to cancel everything they were prepared to help shift everything they could to help me. Instead we kept the date, and the team made the day so magical. The views from the venue are stunning, a photographers dream! The naked tipi was so much fun too, we made it into a “chill-out” zone, which our children loved toward the end of the night and they began to get tired. The outdoor ceremony area is a beautiful blank canvas, and can be dressed anyway you can think, or left as it is so naturally gorgeous. Everything about this place is dreamy, our guests were stunned by how peaceful and magical it all was, and we received so many compliments about the day. And so much of that was thanks to Crown Lodge and the wonderful team! Thank you

The staff were very efficient and very helpful.
We were guests at a recent wedding at Crown Lodge and thought the venue wonderful. It was a very hot day but we were fully shaded by the beautiful mature trees. The Lodge is beautifully styled and the food excellent. It just kept coming! The staff were very efficient and very helpful. There were even outdoor games to keep the guests amused! I thoroughly recommend it.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We couldn't possibly put our finger on one wedding. What's most important to us is that you as a couple along with your family and friends feel relaxed, enjoy the day and create the most memorable memories together

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Plan the day you both want and would be happy to remember for years to come. It's a long day, but it goes so fast - so take some time to have some alone time with each other during the day, taking in the moment.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Memory tables are a beautiful addition for loved ones who are no longer with us, to include them as part of your Big Day.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, warming, welcoming, consistent and supportive

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

We are lucky enough to be positioned on the top of the North downs offering the most amazing views however our favourite would be the Avenue located right behind the Lodge itself with its twinkly lights and tall trees. This is the avenue that you walk down as part of the ceremony.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We haven't yet so still waiting. Fingers crossed!

What’s your favourite canapé?

We dont have a favourite as they are all so yummy however I would say our top 3 our - Sticky Honey Mustard Sesame Cocktail Sausages, Fig Goats cheese Pistachio and Honey and our very well-known Homemade Sausage Rolls with Seasonal Chutney

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Always wedding cake!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Our dedicated Wedding and Front of House team. Without them, we would not be able to offer the customer service and care we do.
