Fantastic Wedding Venue
What a fantastic spot for a wedding! Being a small family run hotel made our wedding feel extremely personal. The staff were on hand throughout the entire day to direct guests (and us) and help in any way they could. The wedding breakfast was great, and we had lots of compliments about the food. The location was spot on, it feels out of the way without being too isolated. We really can't recommend Leeford place enough!

Nothing was too much trouble!
I attended a wedding here in Feb and hands down you are the most helpful staff I have ever met! Nothing was too much trouble - I even ended up sitting in reception having my dress repaired by one of the owners before the ceremony as I put my heel through it chasing children up the stairs! The food was plentiful and tasty! After having one too many I slept like a log in a beautifully comfortable bed - had an amazing shower to bring me back to life! You guys are a credit to the industry. Thank you once again.

We had a fantastic day!
Thank you so much Niki and Eve for making our day run so smoothly. We had a fantastic day and all our guests loved every minute of it as did ourselves. Food was lovely and great portion sizes too, rooms, all staff, everything - I couldn't fault one thing. I'd personally like to thank you for the professional way you handled the situation we were met with, it meant a great deal to us. I would 100% recommend Leeford Place, once again. Thank you.

Your Sussex Wedding

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

Don't panic! A successful wedding day takes lots of pre planning but keeping a 'go with the flow' attitude on the day is definitely the best way to enjoy your big day. We would recommend buying a wedding organiser or using a notebook to jot everything down.

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

There are too many to choose from but definitely in general the 'homemade' touch adds that extra something to the day and really gives it that 'wow' factor!

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

We have a beautiful wooden bridge and Victorian Bandstand which look great for the couple shots. We also recommend our beautiful double entrance at the front of the hotel.

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

Paul McCartney, Daniel Radcliffe, Kim Cattrall, Bobby George, Andy Fordham

What’s your favourite canapé?

Mini Yorkshire puddings with beef and horseradish

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Bacon Rolls!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Our beautiful location, private, not overlooked with our natural spring and wooden bridge. The hotel was once a victorian country house so is steeped in history.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Our personal support for all our couples.
