On a recent visit to Southdowns Manor it may have been an overcast day but the signs of spring were breaking through and the grounds are now looking great. I'm photographing lots of fantastic weddings here this year and really looking forward to them. The team here are so friendly and genuinely look after every one of their weddings, always understanding how special and unique the day is to the bride and groom.
Southdowns Manor is also a permanent wedding venue. Outdoor weddings are possible on their designated patio area and of course there is plenty of room inside too. With the venue being specifically for weddings it's decor is always suitable and a key feature of this venue is that wedding guests have the whole venue to themselves on their wedding day.
As I walked around admiring the venue I noticed the smaller details that make the whole place very relaxing and homely; a real manor house in the peaceful West Sussex countryside. It has ample parking and also some very cosy rooms for wedding guests to stay overnight. Of course there is a Honeymoon suite too with a four poster bed in a nice large room and to top it off a circular bath tub easily big enough for both the bride and groom!
When I'm next back I will post the photos of seasonal changes and also how it all looks on a sunny day, hopefully! Of course there will be lots of weddings to talk about as the year progresses so watch this space!
