Our outdoor wedding pavilion offers the unique opportunity to marry with the beautiful backdrop of the South Downs in. Set within the 93 acres of parkland it is the perfect setting for your wedding day, and candlelit ceremonies and roaring log fires add to the atmosphere of love and romance when there is a chill in the winter air. With an abundance of suites to choose from, award-winning dining, bespoke service and a dedicated wedding co-ordinator who understands that it’s the little details that make all the difference, we're poised to plan everything to perfection. Just for you!

Best day of our lives
I can honestly say that South Lodge exceeded all our expectations as a wedding venue. It provided the perfect backdrop for a love-filled celebration, and every detail was executed with precision and care. Our guests, especially those staying overnight and using the first class Spa facilities, couldn’t thank us enough for picking such a beautiful venue. Jamie and her team ensured we had a perfect day. If you're looking for a venue that combines natural beauty, exceptional service, and a touch of magic, South Lodge is the ideal choice for your special day.

Fantastic Venue would highly recommend!
Beky and her team are fantastic and nothing is too much trouble for them. We had people changing their meat for dinner on the day, and south lodge took everything in their stride. They organised our special day and helped us every step of the way. They made our day so perfect and we cannot thank them enough for everything they did for us on our wedding day and the lead up to our wedding.

Perfect wedding venue
We had the most wonderful wedding day. We couldn’t have asked for anything more regarding any detail… it was perfect. Even the endless rain did not impact in the slightest. The team were just brilliant…. Everything ran seamless throughout the whole day and the food was amazing. The team that looked after us were amazing, nothing was too much trouble. We cannot fault anything at all and are so so happy that we chose to get married at south lodge.

Can your wedding be perfect?
YES! Our day at South Lodge was absolutely perfect including all the time leading up to the big event. When I was reading the reviews about South Lodge I was sceptical as I could not believe that every single couple had a perfect experience there. But here I am, writing a 5 stars review. Our coordinator, Beky, was exceptional throughout and made us feel welcomed, respected and special. Even with me being sceptical at the start, she won us over and soon we felt at home. The attention to details and professionalism are next to none - they all definitely know what they are doing - the service, the décor, the personalised touches - it was all perfect. We enjoyed all the events before the wedding - the showcase, tasting event, vineyard tour as well as SPA days. The day itself couldn't be better - the staff were always one step ahead of us and we had nothing to worry about. All our friends and family had a fantastic time and said that this his how weddings should be done. We added some personal touches with our dog as a ring bearer, confetti cannons and sparklers - nothing was too much trouble. And the food? It was like eating at a Michelin star restaurant. We cannot express our gratitude enough and South Lodge will always be a special place for us. THANK YOU to all the team - you are wonderful!

Exceptional wedding experience!
From the moment we viewed the venue to cutting our cake, and then breakfast the following day, South Lodge's organisation was excellent! On the day we were made to feel so special and every detail was taken care of. The wedding breakfast was amazing and the service first class.

The perfect day at an exceptional venue
The team at South Lodge gave us and our wedding guests a day to remember. Nothing was too much trouble, including a very last minute catering change, and our experience from our initial visit to check out after our wedding was exceptional. On the day so much went on behind the scenes for a smooth, stress free day so as the bride I could fully relax. The team were professional and kind to us and all of our guests and the food was amazing - the best I've ever experienced at a wedding, echoed by our guests. The interior and grounds were the perfect backdrop for our photographs and it is so lovely to have beautiful outside space to relax in after the formalities are over. I can't thanks the team at South Lodge enough.
