Elite Hotels – a privately-owned collection of three individual and distinctive hotels in Sussex and Hampshire, offers the most elegant collection of venues at which to say “I do”, with their newly launched wedding packages.
To complement the comprehensive, and traditional, existing range of wedding and civil partnership packages available at each of the three stunning hotels, year round, the new celebratory packages offer a break from wedding tradition, allowing the happy couple flexibility and creative license at a range of price points, to create the most memorable of nuptials.
Ashdown Park Hotel and Country Club, East Sussex
The fairytale forest wedding location of dreams, Ashdown Park Hotel & Country Club is set within 186 acres of stunning grounds, boasting lakes, secret gardens and woodland trails and a peaceful walled garden with herbaceous borders and stunning seasonal plants and flowers; there are just so many sublime backdrops for wedding photos and gorgeous settings for guests to admire with a glass of fizz in hand.
This 19th century neo-Gothic Grade II mansion, set in the heart of Ashdown Forest (the inspiration, of course, for A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh stories), offers the most magical of country house settings for a wedding or civil partnership. From its beautifully-converted on-site chapel – one of the most impressive wedding venues in Sussex – with its stained glass windows designed by 19th century stained glass artist Harry Clarke, original organ, vaulted ceiling and wedding bells accommodating up to 150 guests; to its idyllic Summer House on the manicured lawns, for 100 guests, as well as charming banqueting suites for weddings or ceremonies of varying sizes.
With 106 bedrooms and suites – each named after a tree species found in the grounds – there’s plenty of space for guests to stay. The hotel features a number of luxurious Honeymoon Suites for the special couple to relax, get ready for the big day, and celebrate the following morning, with indulgent touches including chilled Champagne, chocolates, and flowers on arrival, complimentary newspapers, Country Club & Forest Spa access, and Full English Breakfast served in-room.
