To celebrate the re-opening of Southover Grange a beautiful historic manor house in Lewes, East Sussex, following its £1.5 million refurbishment by East Sussex County Council, couples are being offered the chance to win their wedding ceremony for FREE on the opening day (29th April 2017) of this beautiful Sussex wedding venue and register office.
Councillor Chris Dowling, county council lead member for community services, said:
“The restoration has breathed new life into a stunning period building while maintaining its unique character. This competition will allow people to be part of history and for their ceremony to be the first of its kind at the newly-refurbished venue.”
The lucky winners will win the right to be the first couple to tie the knot in the newly refurbished, 16th Century Manor House with the registrars.
The competition is also open to those planning: a civil partnership, a renewal of marriage vows or a baby-naming ceremony. Each ceremony will be held on the opening day.
Cllr Dowling added: “We’re delighted to be in a position where we’re now taking bookings for ceremonies and celebrations at Southover Grange, which will provide a fantastic backdrop.”
The winning couple will win their ceremony with the registrars officiating free of charge on the opening day, with up to 55 guests able to attend.
Bookings are already being taken for ceremonies at Southover Grange and customers are also now able to book additional services alongside their ceremony, such as a wedding reception within the building, a drinks toast for guests, and a VIP suite for use before their ceremony.
Whilst Southover Grange was undergoing its two year refurbishment registration services were offered at Westfield House, in the grounds of the County Hall in Lewes while couples could obtain register office ceremonies at Lewes Town Hall.
To be in with a chance of winning a ceremony at this stunning Sussex wedding venue and register office, you need to write a statement (no more than A4) explaining why you think you should be the winner and email it to Carole Bailey on firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for the competition is March 1st 2017 so be sure to get your skates on!
