Information For Northease Manor

Stunning Tudor Barn, in the heart of Sussex, perfect for your special day. A gorgeous rustic blank canvas to design your dream venue, newly re-thatched roof, delightful grounds for drinks receptions

Northease Manor Wedding Venue is set amongst the beautiful rolling countryside of the South Downs, and dates back to the 17th century. The Queen Anne Manor House is a Grade II listed building, and today is home to independent Northease Manor School. The fascinating history and charming character of Northease Manor make it a perfect venue for a wedding. If you’re looking for an out of town location, which offers you the flexibility to create a truly unique event, Northease is a perfect choice.

Northease Manor’s rustic Tudor Hall with its pretty thatched roof is licensed for civil ceremonies for up to 110 guests, and is also the room where we serve the wedding breakfast and evening party! We can provide solid wood trestle tables and benches for a rustic feel, or crisp white, floor-length linen for either trestle or round tables if you’d like a more elegant feel. Chivari chairs are included also. The venue suits simple fairylights and uplighters, but our recommended decorators will give you loads of advice on draping, décor and lighting to make the venue truly spectacular. Our venue suits couples who have a creative idea on how they would like to theme their wedding day, with bespoke elements and artistic flair!

The minimum number of daytime adult guests is currently 70 at this venue, up to 130 guests in the evening, and the finish time for music and a licensed bar is 11pm.

You will be able to design your own wedding breakfast with the assistance of our critically acclaimed Executive Chef, Justin Gilham. From formal Four-course meals, to sharing platters, BBQs & hog roasts, there are an impressive variety of potential dishes plus the opportunity to experience some of Circa’s quirky evening food options such as The Circa Pizza Van, Circa Street Food Van, Bert & Ernie Street Food Karts, Bev the Gelato Bike and the Brighton Burger Company Van as well as a range of more traditional options.

Top Wedding Tips

Enjoy the planning process and try to not get too overwhelmed with the amount of things you want to do. Part of the joy is the planning so make sure you keep that in mind.

Have everything in place by 1 month before the wedding, including table plan, guest menu choices and schedule for the day. Changes can be made but if bulk of the work is done, its much less pressure!

Have a plan for set up day, who are you bringing with you? What are their talents? Don’t bring a whole army of helpers – – just bring a few trusted friends and family who you know get your ‘vision’

Dear Marc and all at Circa,

We just wanted to say thank you so much for how our wedding went at Northease Manor. We had an absolutely wonderful day, everything went perfectly despite our overunning and we've had wonderful feedback from our guests, such as "it was the best wedding we've ever been to". All the staff we were really brilliant on the day and while we were setting up and we can't thank you enough. We would highly recommend Circa for the whole experience from planning to the end of the day.

Thanks again,

We have been doing our thank you cards over the past few days, but I may as well take this opportunity to thank you and your team for all the hard work that was put into our day - the catering staff in particular performed exceptionally well.

We really do have some great memories, it was a very fun and easy going day, which was exactly what we had hoped for.

Please pass my thanks to your team for all they have done

All the very best in the future to all of you

Thanks for your email. I have been meaning to contact you anyway as we just wanted to say a massive ‘THANK YOU’ to everyone at Circa for working so hard to provide us with the most perfect wedding day! Thank you for everything – from helping to arrange the day to come within our budget (eternally grateful), to hanging around the venue until 10pm the day before so we got everything set up ready for the next day! Everyone at Circa was an absolute joy to work with and was so professional on the day – the day was seamless and ran so smoothly! I have to mentioned in particular that Ashley was so lovely to have on our special day – it was so sweet to see him get so emotional before I walked up the aisle! Matt & I both thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping to make our day everything we dreamed it would be and more! We truly had the best day of our lives I will definitely be recommending Circa Events to all future brides-to-be! Oh, I also wanted to let you know that literally everyone at our wedding commented on how wonderful the food was! So many people said it was the best wedding food they’d ever had – whether that was BBQ or not! We absolutely loved it & wished we could’ve ate more!

Thanks again to you & the team!

Warmest regards,

"Circa definitely exceeded our expectations in the part they played in preparing for our wedding and in the way they managed things on the day itself. Both Marc and Sarah were very approachable and were always happy to answer our questions on our numerous visits to the venue prior to the wedding. Furthermore, they were very flexible if we wanted to do things in a certain way. The food on the day was absolutely fantastic, again way beyond our expectations. We would thoroughly recommend Circa."
