Choosing the right location for your wedding reception is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make when planning a wedding.
Not only does it have to be somewhere that’s affordable and delightful at the same time, but it also has to be a wedding location that’s right for you as a couple.
After all, it’s not every day you get married and you’ll need a venue that you’ll remember for years to come, for all the right reasons.
An absolutely stunning wedding location near to Bognor Regis is Crouchers Orchards, which makes a breath-taking setting for local couples who are looking for a romantic venue in which to tie the knot and celebrate afterwards.
Crouchers Orchards, which is based in a luxurious location in the beautiful West Sussex countryside, just a 15-minute drive from Bognor Regis’ town center, offers the perfect wedding day package from the ceremony to reception and accommodation afterwards and before.
The venue is fully licensed for weddings and civil partnerships and can even accommodate a multitude of guests, as there are 26 stylish bedrooms and a recently refurbished, modern oak-beamed restaurant and adjoining bar – all located within the farm house.
The wedding package includes:
- Sole use of the venue (front of the bar and bar area not inclusive)
- Chair covers and sashes
- Two rooms the night before and the night of the wedding. Perfect for the couple to relax before the big day and get ready. Breakfast is included.
- There’s also the addition of the honeymoon room on the night of the wedding for the happy couple. Breakfast, again, included.
Perfect food for a perfect occasion
Crouchers Orchards can fit up to 50 people in the ceremony area, which makes an ideal intimate setting for those wanting a smaller celebration.
The meal in the award winning restaurant afterwards can seat up to 100 people and the reception in the evening can accommodate up to 150 people, so you’ll be rest assured that there’s plenty of space for all your family and friends on your special day!
Because of the high chance of sunshine for your big day (we are in the sunniest part of Britain after all!), it’s a great idea to have drinks outside in the summer after the ceremony with some canapés before the big meal.
Despite there being an extensive selection on offer, the food and canapés can even be altered, according to taste. For example, one wedding next year is having a hog roast in one of their beautiful fields instead of a sit-down meal.
Entertainment isn’t in short supply either and Crouchers Orchards can provide the service of an excellent local DJ, who comes highly recommended. But, if a live band is preferred, then ample space can be provided for them to perform.
Amazing accommodation for guests travelling far
As well as the hotel, which is available for guests, there are also the 4 brand new Cottages at Crouchers Orchards, which are surrounded by 30 acres of stunning English countryside and have the Chichester canal right at the bottom of the garden.
As you can imagine, they also provide an idyllic backdrop for photos.
The Cottages are spacious and comfortable, which means they’re the ideal space for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready.
If you have family travelling from afar needing accommodation suitable for children the Cottages are perfect. There’s plenty of outdoor space for them to explore and let their imagination go wild. Please don’t leave your furry canine companions at home either, they’re welcome too! (As long as they’re well behaved and cleaned up after).
At only a five-minute walk from the hotel or a two-minute drive, they make a wonderful home from home, reducing the amount of stress for the big day!
