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. As we have seen in recent months, many couples have found that their weddings have taken many more months to take place than originally planned.
Last minute bookings happen for a multitude of reasons. More recently, Covid related but often it could be a more normal reason such as a move abroad or perhaps a light bulb moment to “Go for it” after years of being together. Our very first wedding at The Pilgrims Rest was unexpectedly brought forward an entire year - this amazing couple managed to plan and execute their wedding beautifully in less than a month.
We have designed The Pilgrims Rest to ensure a last minute wedding is both possible and beautiful for those wanting to tie the knot in a short time period. With no restrictions on suppliers and no corkage charges we try to offer as much flexibility as possible to make your wedding day a reality.
The cosy, intimate nature of the venue means that you can surround yourselves with your friends and family, making this 600 year old Wealden hall house your own for the day. With its inglenook fires, changing rooms and vaulted ceremony room in The Great Hall, The Pilgrims Rest is pretty hard to beat. No wonder it was voted as the best wedding venue in Sussex.
Fashionable months of the year to get married do not apply at the Pilgrims Rest. As far as we are concerned, every month is a wonderful month to marry which is why we style the venue seasonally so it always looks it's best, leaving you free to add your own personal touches.
We have some last minute availability at The Pilgrims Rest for the first quarter of 2022 so if you find an engagement ring in your Christmas Cracker or are planning a proposal, you might not want to wait too long to say “I do”.
