Full Description
Whether it’s the idyllic scenery or the quintessentially English setting, it’s clear why the South Downs National Park is a favourite location for wedding couples. A venue that continues to attract brides and grooms year on year is Southdowns Manor, a historical venue located just a few miles from Trotton, near Midhurst. This spectacular property was originally built in the late 19th century as a two-storey house by the Honourable John Jervis Carnegie. And while the manor has undergone many upgrades, it has carefully preserved its historical charm with elegant furnishings, open fireplaces and sweeping bay windows. Licensed for civil ceremonies, the manor offers a choice of locations for couples to exchange their vows. The Grand Banqueting Suite is popular for ceremonies of up to 150 guests, while the elegant Sussex Room and the Conservatory are perfect for more intimate occasions. During the warmer months, the outdoor gazebo offers a romantic setting on the Southdowns Manor lawns. The in-house chefs and wedding planning team work to the highest standards to provide decadent wedding breakfasts and evening entertainment. The manor also boasts 14 sumptuously furnished guest rooms, providing a luxe retreat following celebrations. With a warm and welcoming feel and a bespoke approach to service, Southdowns Manor places itself as an exclusive ‘home from home’ - all enhanced by the beauty of the surrounding National Park.

All of our guests enjoyed every minute...
Southdowns Manor was the perfect venue for us. From the moment we saw it, we just knew it would be the best place to host a vintage wedding. Despite covid delays, the staff kept us up to date every step of the way and gave us the confidence to proceed with our special day. The staff on the day were really kind and lovely and genuinely wanted to get it just right for us. The bubble bath being filled up for us at the end if the day was such a gorgeous touch too and we are still very much on a high from the day. All of our guests enjoyed every minute and the children were safe and well catered for. Thank you so much to Natalie and Lia who made our day happen. It was absolutely perfect!

We could not recommend Southdowns Manor highly enough
We had the most amazing and special day. The weather didn’t quite hold out for us, but it didn’t spoil it for us. Lia and the team were fantastic at making sure every little detail was in place and our day ran smoothly. We could not recommend Southdowns Manor highly enough. All we have had since is comments from friends and family about how brilliant the day was and how stunning the venue was. The most amazing wedding, thank you do much Southdowns!

We especially loved all of the special touches
We are so happy that we chose Southdowns Manor as our wedding venue. The team at Southdowns Manor were especially helpful as the country went through a pandemic and assisted us with rescheduling our date and making tweaks to our day as needed. We loved this venue because of the countryside setting and chose it because weddings are their sole focus. This made the planning process really easy and we felt very well looked after on the day. We especially loved all of the special touches from the staff at Southdowns Manor which made the day even better.

It ran so smoothly
We cannot believe how amazing our day was, we were always told, something will go wrong on our wedding day but you just have to go with it. Absolutely nothing went wrong on the day and that is massively down to the team at Southdowns Manor. It ran so smoothly and so much work is done behind the scenes but is made to look effortless and so seamless. Lia was incredible and made the day so much easier, everyone was saying how brilliant she was. After postponing three times, the customer service was absolutely amazing, we are so lucky to have had such a thoughtful company. Jennie was so helpful throughout and we are so grateful for everyone who made the process and the day go so well. Thank you again, Lauren and Sam 23/07/2021
