One of the joys of England is it's change of seasons. Who doesn’t love seeing Spring blossom blowing in the breeze and the crunch of Autumn leaves underfoot? But Summer, with its hope of balmy, warm days and rose filled gardens is still the wedding season choice for many.
May to September is known as “Wedding Season” - a time when many venues come to life with green, rolling lawns, glistening lakes and Pinterest ready wooded glens - perfect when the sun is shining but what if the weather refuses to play ball?
In the last few weeks venues across the country have been postponing wedding days to different months, seasons and even years. It has been a stressful time for all concerned and safe to say that tears have been shed. At the same time, a new date has also given couples reassurance that their wedding day will still go ahead and many are embracing the idea of their new seasonal wedding; seeing it as an opportunity to have something even better than before.
Those who have chosen venues that shine no matter what the season, could never have forecast what a lucky decision they made. For couples recently engaged during lockdown, a venue that is stunning (and open) all year round has crept to top of their wedding wish list.
Situated in the heart of East Sussex, The Pilgrims Rest is just such a venue. More than just a beautiful building, this grand old lady has hosted celebrations - from Medieval banquets to Georgian balls; Victorian luncheons to Edwardian tea dances for more 600 years. Over the years, flagons of ale, goblets of wine and flutes of champagne have been consumed beneath her eaves, with laughter echoing through her walls.
The Pilgrims Rest needs little added decoration but is still one you can make your own. With no corkage charges and no fixed suppliers this is a truly unique wedding venue - beautiful yet affordable; aspirational yet relaxed. Always twinkly; always magical; always shining - every season is wedding season at The Pilgrims Rest.
