The length of an engagement can vary hugely. There are those who plan their wedding day two years in advance and those who opt for just two months. Whatever you choose, time is no barrier for a fabulous wedding.
The Pilgrims Rest is situated in the heart of East Sussex. Full of rustic charm and historic soul, this is a wedding venue is unlike any other. We have bookings right into 2021 but also very last minute bookings with only a month to plan every last detail.
Last minute weddings happen for a variety of reasons. Some couples are moving abroad and want to start their new lives married; others have been together for years and suddenly decide to “Go for it” and are married within a few months. Our very first wedding at The Pilgrims Rest was unexpectedly brought forward an entire year - John and Laura managed to plan and execute their wedding beautifully in less than a month.
We have designed and decorated The Pilgrims Rest making a last minute wedding a realistic possibility for anyone wanting to tie the knot in a short time period. There are no hidden extra charges but lots of included extras instead from seasonal garlands decorating the staircase and fireplaces to vintage decanters and wood for the fires. There are no corkage charges and also no fixed suppliers making it more possible to have an impromptu wedding.
Everything you see when you visit The Pilgrims Rest is included. Its cosy, intimate nature, with its inglenook fires, bridal changing rooms and vaulted ceremony room is pretty hard to beat - a unique backdrop on which to add your own personal details; a wedding venue that is aspirational yet affordable; stunning yet relaxed.
If you are thinking about tying the knot we do have some last minute dates still available for early 2019. Alternatively if you would like a little more time to plan your day and would like to attend our next viewing day on Sunday 9th December 2018 then please contact Amy on 07552873448.
