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 marquee is 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 food is provided by the wonderful Sarah and Rob from Burnt Orange Kitchen. They can bring their twenty years' experience to your wedding day to make it as magical - and delicious - as possible.

There is great choice in the food available, including a traditional plated breakfast, sharing and feasting menus, and an authentic regional Indian kitchen menu. They can even provide a range of food stations for something a little more unusual, from chocolate fountain to cheese board. You could even opt for bowl food, or for afternoon tea, instead.

Of course, let's not forget the drinks. There are five tiers of drinks packages starting from £12 per guest up to unlimited Champagne or Pimm's. Or, supply your own booze with a vintage dry bar hire, complete with bar tenders and mixologists.
