Looking for a rustic-chic venue in rural West Sussex? Historic Bignor Park, a 1,200-acre estate at the foot of the South Downs, is now available to hire for weddings. There is a variety of reception spaces to choose from. Able to accommodate up to 25 guests, the Stove Room is perfect for an intimate celebration, while there are a number of function rooms that can seat up to 80 people; all open onto a pretty courtyard. Alternatively, you could go for a marquee in the courtyard or on the croquet lawn (both seat 150 guests). Expect to pay from £3,000 for a ceremony in the Greek Loggia and a reception in the restored Stables, a quirky space that you can decorate as you please. This price is for venue hire only, which includes exclusive access to the gardens and grounds. Everything else (food and drink, marquee, furniture, decor etc) is on top.
