Whether the weather be fine, Or whether the weather be not, Whether the weather be cold, Or whether the weather be hot, We'll weather the weather Whatever the weather, Whether we like it or not!
When planning a wedding in the U.K. there is always the worry of what the good old British weather might do; Will it be a lovely day? Will the heavens open? In a country where the weather can be unpredictable it is a very good idea to pick a venue that is not completely weather dependent.
The Pilgrims Rest is a 600 year old Wealden Hall house right in the heart of East Sussex. Perfect for weddings all year around, this stunning, exclusive use venue offers flexibility and choice on your wedding day. Whether you decide to marry in Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter; rain, shine or snow, The Pilgrims Rest is a venue that always looks stunning.
On a sunny day, your guests can spill out into its walled garden or its quintessentially English cottage garden with views on to The Abbey. As the evenings draw in, or in the event of bad weather, we will stoke up the fires, light the candles and watch as this magical old building sparkles into life.
So, as you choose your wedding venue, look carefully at what it might look like on a grey, drizzly day and choose wisely. The one thing we can never control on a wedding day is the weather…whether we like it or not!
If you would like to come and view The Pilgrims Rest then join us on our next open evening on Wednesday 11 December 2019 between 4pm and 8pm. Please contact The Pilgrims Rest team on email@example.com or call 07552 873448 to book an appointment.
Winter weddings are becoming very popular, with rich seasonal colours making this a great season to get married.
As we hit November it has me thinking how idyllic The Pilgrims Rest is for a winter wedding. A Wealden hall house dating back to circa 1420, with three beautiful reception rooms - the Great Hall, the Dining Room, and the Webster Room all boast inglenook fireplaces. With endless historic features from ancient beams to linenfold doors, witch’s marks to ward off evil spirits and a secret tunnel hidden under the Great Hall fireplace that runs beneath the Abbey walls, The Pilgrims Rest is a truly unique winter wedding venue.
The Pilgrims Rest is an exclusive use venue licenced for weddings and civil ceremonies. There are no corkage charges and no hidden extras. We have designed our venue to be a wonderful backdrop for your winter wedding – one that you can stamp your own personality on without the hassle and expense of furnishing an empty venue.
So, stoke up the fires, light some candles and watch as The Pilgrims Rest sparkles into life…
