We loved every second of dealing with Lorraine and her team. They couldn’t of been more helpful. Nothing was ever too much. The venue speaks for its self. Absolutely breathtaking. There is so much you can do to put your own stamp on this venue. You have a great canvas to work of. 10/10. Will be going back for our 1 year anniversary for sure.

It feels special, unique and yours, which is how it should be for your special day...
The day we first visited the venue we fell in love, it's not like any other generic wedding venue. It feels special, unique and yours, which is how it should be for your special day. We booked in the tail end of 2019 for September 2020 so went through a couple of postponements due to the pandemic. Through what could have been a very stressful time we felt safe and supported by Gileston and the wedding was 100% worth the wait. We booked pretty much all of the suppliers recommended by Gileston and it paid dividends to have taken their advice. They were all outstanding. The day ran smoothly and everything was perfect thanks to Chelsea and the staff at Gileston. Chelsea was always there but without ever being noticeable or an obvious presence. I was 12 weeks pregnant on my wedding day (which most of the guests were unaware of) as we hadn't announced it yet but Chelsea was there on hand with substitute Prosecco in a flute to keep up appearances. Throughout the wedding breakfast and the evening I was topped up subtly with only non-alcoholic drinks so no one suspected a thing and I didn't have to have any awkward conversations with guests about why I wasn't drinking. The accommodation was also beautiful and perfect for my bridesmaids and family to stay the night before and night of the wedding. A truly luxury wedding venue with a charming, relaxed vibe.

Gileston Manor exceeded our expectations in every single way...
"Gileston Manor is the most beautiful and magical wedding venue and exceeded our expectations in every single way. The grounds are immaculate with the most spectacular views and was the perfect venue for us. We, along with our families had an amazing stay in the beautiful accommodation and the whole experience was amazing. Every single member of the Gileston team made us feel so relaxed and welcomed at the manor and went above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect".

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We have too many beautiful weddings to mention just one, whether it's the groom coming in by helicopter, celebrity guests at weddings or even celebrity couples getting married, beautiful flowers, outdoor ceremonies and lots of surprises for guests, every wedding is the best wedding.

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

Your wedding should reflect you as a couple, there's so many influences out there it's easy to lose your way. Stay focused, it's your wedding day!

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

A large beautiful glass jar which guests wrote down their wishes for the happy couple, the jar wasn't to be smashed open until the couples 10 year anniversary to find out if all the wonderful wishes came true!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Unique. Exclusive. Magical. Personal. Luxury.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

You are literally spoilt for choice for photo spots - with a choice of unique gardens, 180 degree sea views and the beautiful backdrop of the Grade 11* listed Georgian Manor House, you'll feel like you're in Italy or France!

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

We've had so many we feel very privileged to have met so many well known guests, but the icing on the cake is that the fabulous David Emanuel (Princess Diana's wedding dress designer) is in the family!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Mini Yorkshire pudding with roast beef and a hint of horseradish, yum!!! or if your veggie try a deep fried risotto ball also very yum!!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

A cheese grazing table, with a delicious array of cheese, chutneys, breads, and fruit. Or if you prefer something a little more hot and greasy try a hog roast!!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

There are too many to choose from! The showstopper is definitely the Manor House, but then our guests always fall in love with our gardens and our incredible location because of the breath-taking panoramic sea views...

What part of your business are you most proud of?

We pride ourselves on delivering excellent customer service.
