A perfect day at the Gallivant!
Having originally planned to get married in August 2020, due to government restrictions we tied the knot in October 2020 with 15 of our nearest and dearest. Even at the best of times, the build up to your wedding can become quite stressful(!) however the support we received from everyone at the Gallivant was overwhelming. Sarah was our main point of contact and was amazing from the planning stages through to the day itself, going above and beyond to make sure we and our guests were perfectly looked after. Head chef Jamie put together the most incredible menu for the day and the quality of the food and drink served across our weekend really stood out and was a big highlight for us. The venue styling feels so sophisticated yet relaxed and having the exclusive use of such a beautiful space and accommodation felt very special. There were little details at every turn that made the day so personal to us, like the Bloody Mary 'Recovery Station' at breakfast as an example! Our day couldn't have been more perfect, thank you all so much for the efforts you went to for us, it's one we will always remember.

Perfect venue for our laidback wedding
We had originally planned to marry at a different venue in the centre of Rye but unfortunately, three months before our wedding, there was a fire and the venue was forced to close. We'd spent over a year planning the day and so the thought of having to do it all again, in such a short space of time, was pretty soul destroying. However, the team at The Gallivant were amazing at recreating our vision and went above and beyond to make sure all the little details we'd already planned could still be incorporated into the day. We wanted a laidback, slightly less conventional wedding, with an intimate breakfast for family and then a big party with plenty of locally-sourced food and drink for everyone afterwards. A special mention to head chef Jamie, who as well as creating a stunning menu, also sourced and shucked local oysters, which is something not usually on the menu but we were keen to include for our guests in the afternoon. They say things happen for a reason and, while the day wasn't the original we had planned, The Gallivant was the absolutely perfect venue for us and the day surpassed all our (and our guests') expectations.
