Where to get married in East Sussex
If you don't know take a look at East Sussex County Councils Website, they list all licensed venues -
 
 
Here are a few hotels all quite different but all with great reputations for customer service who have been kind enough to recommend me time and time again. I am always delighted to return to each of them with my camera for Weddings & Ceremonies, Events and all sorts of social photography and consider them to be friends.
Countryhouse Hotel with Spa & Gym / Pool facilities. Great Attention to detail for Weddings & Celebrations. I've shot many family Portraits too at this Hotel in it's pretty gardens.

Conservatory Weddings are ideal for those times of year when the weather can be 'unpredictable' but still give an outside feel to the ceremony.
Flackley Ash Hotel
Seafront Hotel with a renowned restaurant, panoramic view Ceremony Room, and separate function rooms. Many repeat customers visit.

The proprietor has written his amazing autobiography Celebrity Hotel about his lifetime in hotels, from washer up, to present day.
Langham Hotels
The Famous Mermaid Inn. Works in cooperation with local Churches / Bright well lit Town Hall for Weddings. Visited by locals, Royalty & Celebrities alike. Situated in the heart of Rye, one of the most picturesque towns in the UK. Separate function room for Weddings / Private Celebrations. Beautiful building dating to 1400s.

Mermaid Inn
Although part of a large chain many key staff at Brighton Thistle have not changed for many years which creates a wonderful atmosphere. With multiple dining rooms, large function room, full in house gym and fantastic aspects of Brightons vibrant seafront and full corporate hotel facilities you'll be delighted to know it also has an adjoing car park. Thistle Hotel Brighton
Progressive Venue
 
Here are a few great venues I see regularly who have been kind enough to add a reciprocal website link.
Paul & Alan are wonderful hosts and I really look forward to Photographing at Saltcote. Saltcote Place
A really local venue to me that has always been popular for Weddings. It can be very much what you want it to be as customers choose their own caterers, suppliers etc.
Mainly fairly local couples marry here, and I've photographed many happy occasions at this venue.
Manor Barn
A modern look and an exclusive Wedding use deal that seems like a really flexible idea. I photographed receptions here since before they obtained their ceremony license. Flackley Ash Hotel
Mark has worked smart and hard to build up his excellent unique Wedding Venue for many years, now just a few minutes away from my new location swallowsoast
