The moated grounds of this Elizabethan estate make the perfect location for your outdoor nuptials. This unique site is situated in the heart of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Tie the knot under the Grade II-listed arches then party the night away in a luxury marquee with all of your friends and family.

The site has plenty of parking, as well as good connections to nearby B&Bs. After you say your vows overlooking the Elizabethan ruins, you can tuck into a delicious meal or barbecue provided by dedicated caterers. Then, dance the night away in a fully kitted out marquee.


The history of Slaugham Place goes back to the 1400s when there was an iron furnace at the site. In 1590, a house was built alongside it which unfortunately was neglected and mostly demolished in the 18th century. Luckily, Sir Alan Urwick (who worked for MI6 and the Foreign Office) bought the property in 1976 and worked to restore the Moat House and gardens to glory.

The venue has been used for weddings since the late 1990s so that couples can enjoy the surroundings and the nearby River Ouse. Now, it is a popular and well-preserved wedding venue that caters for outdoor weddings.


Slaugham Place offers a lovely backdrop for your outdoor wedding, with all the necessary facilities on-site for your comfort. Meanwhile, two marquees will offer everything you need, from a bar to DJ and even a fully-equipped kitchen.

The Arches

Tie the knot under the grand Grade II-listed arches at Slaugham Place. The remains of the Elizabethan house make for a romantic backdrop. All of your guests can watch on from under a spacious glass marquee.

Civil ceremony capacity - 150 guests

Luxury Marquee

The marquees, provided by Super Event, are top of the range. It is lined with ivory coloured fabric as a neutral tone to complement your wedding theme. There are grand wooden French doors to enter the space with carpet and chandeliers. Truly, this is a great space.

Wedding breakfast capacity - 150 guests
Reception capacity - 150 guests


The site is managed by Super Event who provides both the marquees and the catering. There are three tiers of catering packages, starting a £42.50 per guest. The packages vary depending on whether you want canapés and starters for your guests, but they all include:

  • Your choice of main course and dessert
  • Supplying and setting up of all tables, crockery, cutlery, etc.
  • A team to prepare, cook, and serve your menu
  • A supervisor to overlook proceedings
  • After dinner tea, coffee and mints
  • Cutting the wedding cake (cake provided by your baker)
  • Clearing the marquee of all food, rubbish and debris
