Farm Wedding – Rustic Wedding Venue – Outdoor Ceremony Venue – Lewes Wedding Photographer
Crockstead Farm Weddings are great! Crockstead farm is a beautiful wedding venue near Lewes in East Sussex. The rural setting, just outside Halland and north of the South Downs has some fantastic unique features for a wedding venue. My first Crockstead Farm wedding set the bar high, with an outdoor ceremony by the pond in the garden outside the farm buildings. The small garden gazebo, adorned with flowers and decorations, is a quaint setting for an intimate outdoor ceremony. Crockstead farm is one of the most beautiful wedding venues in East Sussex.
Outdoor ceremonies in East Sussex
The surrounding East Sussex countryside surrounding Crockstead farm is surprisingly flat, and this allows beautiful light all day when the sun is shining, right up until sunset. Crockstead Farm Hotel has a reception bar for welcoming drinks and tables outside next to the pond. This wedding venue in East Sussex also has accommodation, and separate areas for the Bride & Groom to get ready before the wedding ceremony. The hotel courtyard is resident to a couple of beautiful peacocks and a large tree where you can hang heart decorations and personalise your wedding day.
The wedding breakfast can be served in two different locations, depending on your guest list, with the larger room used for dancing in the evening. The hotel is licensed for civil ceremonies, with an indoor ceremony room or the option of getting married outside if the weather is nice. Crockstead Farm has fields surrounding the working farm, which can be used for portraits of the bride and groom and idyllic country lanes for shots with your wedding car (or quad bike!) The front garden of Crockstead Farm is also great for mingling guests to sip champagne at the wedding reception and is a perfect location for a group photograph of all your wedding guests.
Crockstead Farm Wedding Photography
Crockstead Farm offers a farm and barn wedding location in East Sussex, and the pond feature is my particular favourite. Surrounded by gentle poplars and willow trees, the location is great for group photographs and an ambience of gentle quacking from the local ducks! Perfect for spring and summer weddings. Exclusive use of the venue is also available and there is ample parking.
At Wayne and Vivien’s wedding, we shot some group photographs in front of the duck pond and a few along the countryside tracks next to the fields surrounding the farm.
The larger mill room works as a nice dining room and doubles up for the evening entertainment and dancing later.
