East Sussex Wedding Venue

Perfect Weddings are the result of friends working in unison

East Sussex Wedding Venue

You have a vision, you have the passion and we believe you deserve a venue who share your excitement.

Saltcote Place is an intimate family home. We are not a commercial venue, as such we will set aside the time needed to understand what you want.

Our approach means that no two weddings here are ever the same.

We prefer not to offer 'packages'. Once we understand your plans we then we work with you to develop an entirely bespoke Celebration tailored around you. We also never run weddings back to back.

Peace of mind - Exclusive use. Once within the grounds you never have to worry about traffic or where are the children. There will be no strangers, no golfers and no gate crashers. Saltcote will be your home for the day and your home only for the whole time you and your guests are here.

The owners will be here to deal with every detail We believe Weddings are too important (and far too much fun) to leave to a member of staff, we enjoy meeting excited couples and then later delivering the perfect Celebration for our friends.

Unlike other venues there will be no other brides and grooms checking in tomorrow - we promise! Saltcote is all about exclusivity.

Children are welcome and your Guests will enjoy themselves. Disabled facilities are in place and all dietary needs can be accommodated.

Saltcote Place Videos

View the elevated setting and secluded grounds, you will notice we are a very short walk into town and that we offer plenty of parking from where the video starts.

The extensive lawns and formal gardens offer intimate space for your wedding pictures and more than one Bride has been invited back a few days afterwards to retake a few magical pictures.

You are welcome to pop along with your photographer in advance of your celebration to plan how some of your memories will be captured.

Your Guests

12 to 14 of your Guests can stay at Saltcote and within a few minutes walk we have enough accommodation for another 100. With midweek Celebrations there is no requirement to use our lovely accommodation.

The Rye Bay area is always a popular place to stay, at the weekends good accommodation can be at a premium. We strongly suggest you make your plans well in advance to allow your guests adequate time to make their arrangements. We will be pleased to help where needed.

Often a midweek Wedding will reduce your costs and make it easier for quests to find suitable accommodation. If you are having pre-wedding meals the local restaurants will be more able to offer you exclusive use.

We can help you arrange transport to return your guests to their respective accommodation as the Celebration winds down and vehicles can be left here overnight if needed.

The day after your Celebration it may be an idea not to rush off but to have a BBQ or tea party in your Marquee? It's a magical way to share memories in a relaxed way before heading off on your new life together.

Wedding Packages - really ?

We probably have the best catering and events team in place who will work within your budget to develop the bespoke celebration you dream of.

With prices starting from only £55.45 per person which includes unlimited evening drinks from the bar we think you may enjoy looking at the brochure below for ideas although it's your day and your idea's that count.

    “We cannot praise Alan and Paul highly enough for the organisation and input and the most beautiful setting for the wedding yesterday. The contacts they gave us for the catering and fireworks were absolutely amazing and truly gave good service. The breakfast both mornings was superb and could not have been bettered by any hotel or restaurant. Thank you guys once again a wonderful day. Matt and Eva Harris. 19th March 2016”

We cannot thank you enough for making us all feel so much at home the entire time. We will make sure you have more photos as soon as we can. Love, Mrs K and Mrs. S. Xx”

    “A very BIG thank you to both of you for everything you've done. You were both brilliant hosts and we had the best wedding day ever. Words cannot convey how we feel. Everything went as planned and it really was better than we could have imagined it to be. My family extend a very huge thank you - they felt extremely welcome and were really impressed with Saltcote. They felt we chose the perfect venue and your help during the weekend was immeasurable. Our guests were very impressed as was our photographers. It was a beautiful day and the setting was just beautiful particularly for the play. Best wishes, Ros and James aka Mr and Mrs Hedges! ”

    “Wedding Reception Perfection" - We had our Wedding reception there on 29 November. We could not have chosen a better venue. We also stayed two nights with everything in your room you could wish for. The owners Paul & Alan made you feel so welcome and they even joined in. The food we had & the service we could not fault. The rooms were decorated to a very high standard and felt warm & cozy, the dining room, the lounge and we even had a disco room where Alan sang a few songs. We enjoyed ourselves so much and could not fault a thing and we would recommend Saltcote Place to anyone wanting an idyllic stay in Rye. Perhaps we should get divorced just to do it all over again. Many thanks to Paul & Alan from Bill & Angela xx”

    “Wedding Perfection" - We held our wedding on 25th October. We agreed, as did all our guests, that the whole celebration simply could not have gone any better. Paul and Alan make this location quintessentially English and for us, unique. We cannot recommend this beautiful location highly enough. We were simply able to enjoy every single aspect of our day without any concerns. The living accommodation, bedrooms and bathrooms are luxurious and spacious and worked perfectly for our party over the wedding weekend. Nothing being too much trouble. My wife and I would happily recommend Saltcote Place to anyone considering a celebration to remember..”

    “Superlatives are woefully inadequate to describe this beautifully unique venue - We booked Saltcote for our wedding as all the other venues paled into significance against this shining example. The building and grounds are beautifully presented and superbly well maintained, not to mention the stunningly well presented rooms and suite. Perfect to relax and explore Rye at your leisure.” See more details about same sex Marriages and Civil Ceremonies
