Firle Place is absolutely stunning
Firle Place is absolutely stunning and the different areas lend itself perfectly to a Wedding. The flexibility that Firle offers is fantastic, in comparison to other venues, they gave us the opportunity to create the day exactly as we wished. We could not have wished for a better day and Firle was the perfect setting. Thanks again, you were amazing!

Perfect end of summer wedding
We first visited Firle in December 2021 and fell in love with it. I used to be a Wedding planner and wanted a venue different to what I used to work in. Firle fitted the bill perfectly. There are so many parts of the grounds that it creates different spaces to use throughout the day. The house and is stunning and the perfect setting for the ceremony itself. you can then enjoy reception drinks on the front lawn before moving to the croquet lawn for more drinks and canape's. The Riding School is the perfect setting for the Wedding Breakfast and evening party. It really is a wonderful venue and Bryony and Chloe at Blue Door couldn't have been more helpful. Would highly recommend :)

Just amazing!
What can I say! The ladies and Firle place were fabulous. The venue and grounds are just stunning and I am still in shock at how beautiful our wedding day was. Bryony and Chloe are fantastic. They really are seasoned professionals and it shows in how easy they make the whole process. Nothing was stood much trouble for them. We choose Bryony to be our on the day management for the day and it really took the pressure off of us. I would highly recommend this services. We are still pinching ourselves that it was actually our wedding and I cannot recommend the venue and blue door weddings enough. A million thank you’s always, we will never forget! Xxxx

The most spectacular venue for the most important day
We got married at Firle in June 2022. We loved the flexibility of the venue, they let you create exactly the day you want in the way you want. We got married in the courtyard which was so beautiful, it felt like we were in Italy! We loved how there are so many different spaces to move to throughout the day - making the day varied without having to organise any transport. Bryony and Chloe are so helpful, troubleshooting on the day and making everything run smoothly. They even helped us facilitate two alpacas to come and celebrate with us...! Overall, Firle was such a huge part of making our day so sensational. The feedback we got on Firle from our guests was incredible, people told us it was the best venue they'd ever been to - and we know of at least one couple who have now booked Firle for their wedding as a result of ours! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Firle to anyone.

We had the most perfect day
What can we say - we had the most perfect wedding day at Firle Place's Georgian Riding School. From the moment we met Bryony and Firle Place we knew we were in good hands. She was fabulous from start to finish, from helping us to plan (and then move!) our wedding during covid to provide amazing advice on how we could create our perfect day. She was very communicative, relaxed, friendly and lovely to work with, and made the day run without a hitch. We can't thank her enough and would highly recommend her and the beautiful venue.

As soon as we visited we knew it was for us
Thank you Bryony and all at Firle Place for working so well with Gemma and I to create the most perfect wedding day. As soon as we visited Firle, we knew this was the venue for us, and we would do it all over again in a heartbeat. The house, the grounds, the Riding School, everything is perfect and Bryony as a wedding coordinator is second to none. Nothing is too much trouble for her. She is so organised, and her relaxed and positive attitude played a huge part in our day running so smoothly. If you are thinking of booking Bryony and Firle Place for your wedding, don’t think, just do it
