About Pelham House wedding venue

Situated in the heart of the charming town of Lewes, just over an hour from London and 25 minutes from Brighton, Pelham House is a beautiful 16th-century wedding venue that is currently undergoing an incredible transformation, and will soon be reborn to combine the opulence and grandeur of a country manor with the sophistication and finesse of a private club. Every little detail has been carefully considered and the whole property is exclusively yours for your special day, from the celebration rooms with ornate original features and striking lighting to the tranquil gardens, framed by rolling countryside and the East Sussex clifftops. And with the convenience of a train station just a few minutes away and stylish accommodation for you and up to 60 guests, all your friends and family can join in the celebration.

Getting ready at Pelham House will be an event in itself. Hidden away in The Courthope Mews is The Dressing Room, a luxurious space where you can put the finishing touches to your look, spend some quality time with your nearest and dearest and catch a glimpse of your guests arriving in the courtyard below. As they make their way into the house, they will be met by a sweeping staircase and striking hand-painted trompe-l'œil mural on the ceiling, and perhaps a glass of Champagne or two.

For intimate civil ceremonies, the chic Goring ceremony room is the perfect location. Original bay windows let the light stream in and offer views of the colourful garden beyond, creating a setting of pure romance. In the warmer months, wander along the flower-lined aisle to The Gazebo while your guests take a seat on the lawn and exchange your vows al fresco as you drink in your picturesque and peaceful surroundings.

When you enter The Blencowe Room for your wedding breakfast, you’ll be captivated by the grand marble pillars and intricate original wood panelling, all brought to life with dazzling feature lighting. The expert chefs from Galloping Gourmet will help you create the perfect wedding breakfast, from spectacular sharing boards to fine dining feasts, and there’s plenty of room for a band and dancing too. Enjoying drinks in The Garden Room or out on the terrace as the sun goes down is a memory that will last a lifetime.

Once the night has come to a close, your romantic Pelham Suite awaits. It has its own spacious lounge area, a pristine en-suite complete with an inviting free-standing bath, and an opulent bedroom that exudes elegance and luxury. With space for up to 60 guests in the house, your loved ones can spend the night in style too, before meeting for breakfast and reliving your special day.
