The Setting

In the heart of the stunning Sussex countryside, Wonderland offers a unique festival wedding experience.

Tucked away down a private track, this beautifully curated bohemian venue is reminiscent of legendary artists’ houses; its surrounded by picturesque farmland and the South Downs. It feels like a hidden gem, offering seclusion while remaining conveniently close to local towns and cities. You can reach Brighton in just 20 minutes and London in an hour, making it easily accessible for all your guests.

The Vibe

Wonderland isn’t your typical wedding venue; it’s an enchanting bohemian haven designed to host unforgettable celebrations. It was created by the mastermind behind Glastonbury’s infamous secret venue, ‘The Rabbit Hole’ stage, so you know it’s got serious party credentials. There are secrets and magic in every corner, and peacocks roaming free.

As you arrive, you’ll discover quirky accommodation: a lake with a rowing boat, an Airstream caravan, a double-decker treehouse, and even a secret nightclub decked out like a festival tent.

Wonderland is perfect for couples seeking a laid-back, festival-style wedding or planning an intimate elopement. The venue offers a weekend hire period from Friday afternoon to Sunday noon, encouraging you and your guests to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. A splendid marquee for your wedding breakfast is included in the price, as well as stylishly decorated accommodation and even an outdoor spa deck with a wood-fired hot tub. There is no charge to take your own food or alcohol so self catering is easy, there’s also an outdoor pizza oven if you fancy making your own.

Your guests can enjoy a magical ceremony by the lake, capture stunning photos on the jetty or rowing boat, dine in a unique marquee with panoramic views and then dance the night away in the gloriously decorated secret party barn. The whole setting feels reminiscent of the homes of great creatives, providing a perfect backdrop for an immersive weekend of celebration.

Wonderland offers a range of accommodation options, each with its unique style and amenities. There’s something for everyone, from the large Lake House with wooden beams and antiques to the airy Tiny House with a flamingo chandelier. Glamorous Airstream caravans, Shepherds Huts with wood-burning stoves, Gypsy Wagon Caravans, and a cosy igloo-style Dome are the other quirky accommodations available. For larger groups, ten bell tents are also available.

If you’re looking for the ultimate pampering experience, Wonderland offers spa treatments, including massages, reflexology, and group sound baths. It’s the perfect way to unwind during your festival-style wedding weekend.
