A fabulous setting for your wedding that's as individual as you are!
Warm and welcoming with an air of quiet, rural charm, Yew Lodge is a beautiful, Victorian house specialising in quality weddings. Named after the 900-year-old tree in the grounds, the house is set well back from the road by a long, private drive, offering private and seclusion; and yet it is easily accessible being situated just outside East Grinstead, on the Sussex, Surrey, Kent borders, and less than one hour from London or 20 minutes from Gatwick Airport.
Yew Lodge, steeped in history, with first references dating back to 959 ad, is proud to be gay-friendly and a supporter of equal marriages. The house as it stands now was built in the late 1800's and is extremely attractive retaining many original features. Together with the setting of 10 acres of beautiful gardens, it becomes the ideal venue for your wedding celebration, with many picturesque photographic opportunities both internally and outside.
One of the great benefits of coming to Yew Lodge is that your wedding will be the only one taking place during the day and your guests will be free to use the house and gardens and can truly relax. It is an intimate venue and many people have commented favourably on the warm, "house party" atmosphere.
It's the perfect venue for same-sex ceremonies and with our beautiful rooms for civil-ceremonies, we are able to host the wedding day of your dreams from start until the last dance. Our bespoke wedding venue is a contemporary design with polished granite floors and high tech LED lighting which can be set with your colour theme and variable later for the celebration. Not only are we a Pink Venue, but we have the LED spotlights to prove it with pride.
Yew Lodge is privately owned and aims for the highest standards. Knowing that good food, fine wine and attentive service are vital for the success of any event, Yew Lodge tailors its catering services to suit individual needs. All meals are freshly prepared on the premises, using local suppliers wherever possible. Currently up to 80 people can be seated for the wedding breakfast; from April 2010 our capacity will increase to 140 seated.
We are licenced to hold the civil ceremony so your whole celebration can be hosted in one place. Alternatively, several churches representing different denominations are close by.
There is plenty of private parking and there are 14 en-suite bedrooms, including the Marriage Suite.
