The best wedding venues are in Lewes. You’re honestly pretty spoilt for choice if you are looking to get married here.
If you can’t tell already, I love Lewes. When I first visited my husband’s family before moving over here from the US, Lewes was the first place we visited. I fell in love with the castle, and you can bet I about died when I booked a wedding there. I love being a Lewes wedding photographer, and jump at opportunities to go to this really beautiful corner of the world.
