The doors are open once more at Pelham House and this former East Sussex hotel has been totally transformed into a charming and elegant wedding venue. Offering exclusive-use, stunning accommodation, fantastic spaces and the option for romantic outdoor ceremonies in the venue’s secluded gardens, Pelham House is set to become the area’s most sought-after wedding venue.

The restoration and renovations have taken place with weddings in mind. There are various options for wedding ceremonies, fabulous spaces in which to prepare, wine and dine plus a luxurious honeymoon suite and ample accommodation for family and friends.

After final wedding preparations have been made in the stylish Dressing Room, head across to The Goring Room where a wonderful wedding ceremony setting awaits. Walk down the aisle and step into a pool of natural light that floods in from the drape-hung window as you take your vows. Alternatively, step into the idyllic gardens and say ‘I do’ beneath The Gazebo with the rolling South Downs in the distance.

Following a romantic ceremony, couples can step outside onto the terrace with a drink and a canapé or enjoy a drinks reception in The Garden Room, a sophisticated space with stylish tub chairs, brushed metals and muted colours.

For a wedding breakfast to remember, The Blencowe Room can’t be beaten. Once the house’s drawing room, it’s now the stage for memorable celebrations. Historic wood-panelling, dramatic marble pilasters and a rich colour palette add to the occasion. Couples can configure the room to suit their own wedding style and, with the expert on-site team in charge of food and event management, you know the whole day will be a delicious success.

When the feasting is over, The Blencowe Room is transformed to become the setting for the party of a lifetime. With ample room for bands and DJs, plus plenty of room for dancefloor escapades, this room comes alive as the sun goes down.

At the end of the night, the newlyweds and their guests can retire to one of 29 bedrooms with the happy couple escaping to the spacious and luxurious Pelham Suite where cosy sofas, a huge bed and a standing bath await.

Pelham House really does offer everything to couples who are looking for a stylish and sophisticated wedding day. It’s a haven of privacy yet situated in the heart of the county town of Lewes. For further information about Pelham House, you can call the team on 01273 030 203.
