Planning your perfect wedding day at The Chichester Hotel
January 30, 2018
It’s a romantic time of the year following the annual procession of wedding proposals at Christmas and New Year and of course we have the most romantic day of the year to come, Valentine’s Day. Did your loved one propose in the traditional way, down on one knee and asking your parents’ permission first? Or was there a grand gesture? Whichever way the proposal happened you now have all of the planning of the big day: exciting times ahead!
To help with the planning we have our first Wedding Fair of 2018 on Sunday 4th March and from past fairs we have held at The Chichester Hotel there have been a queue of excited couples waiting to meet wedding suppliers and also view the perfect romantic venue, the Essex Barn.
The Essex Barn will be beautifully laid up by The Event Hire Company, giving the impending wedding couple a chance to visualise their day with all of the latest wedding themes: the question to ask is what will be on trend in 2018? Also why hold a wedding in a barn? The Essex Barn dates back to the 1800’s and still has some of the original features dating back to that period. The area oozes romance of bygone years and is the perfect backdrop to your wedding day.
Planning a wedding can be stressful for any couple, but at The Chichester Hotel we want to take the stress away and below are some of the most common questions we get asked:
Q: Can we have a bespoke wedding package?
At The Chichester Hotel we have a number of packages that include your traditional wedding breakfast, toast drinks etc. However if you want a BBQ in November, we are the venue to use. Sorry, we cannot control the weather, but we can organise the patio heaters!
Q: Can my guests stay overnight at the Hotel?
Yes. We have 36 bedrooms including twin and family rooms and what better way to continue your special time by having a group breakfast or brunch the following day, making memories which last?
Q: Can we hold the marriage ceremony at the Hotel?
Yes. You have to pay a registrar fee and can only book one year in advance. The advantage of this is the guests do not need to make their own way from the ceremony to the reception in cars.
If you are unable to attend the Wedding Fair then one of our dedicated wedding coordinators will be able to book you an appointment to view the Essex Barn and to start planning your perfect wedding day, so call 01268 560 555 to make an appointment.
