We're getting married at Wiston House, an amazing stately home nestled at the foot of the South Downs in West Sussex. We have exclusive use of the house for the day and evening; our marriage ceremony will be held in the Great Hall (which dates back to 1576) and which we will also use for our reception in the evening.


Both the venue and the area are steeped in history - the house was occupied by the forces of King Charles I during the English Civil War, while the land is overlooked by Chanctonbury Ring (dating back to the stone age) and the iconic South Downs Way. More recently, it is the house at the centre of Wilton Park, a non-profit organisation orignally inspired by an initiative from Winston Churchill for democracy, peace and reconcilation and now hosting conferences on varied matters such as climate change, diet and nutrition, and peaceful protest.

While we do have a timetable for the day, it's only a guide. We'll no doubt spend a fair bit of time in the house, but if the weather is kind we'll be able to relax outside or in the conservatory as well.

The house has a total of 20 bedrooms available for those who want to stay over the following night; all are large and many are suitable for families with children (there are an additional 28 rooms located in nearby cottages and associated building).
