6. Stanmer House (Proud Country House)
More famously known as Stanmer House, Proud Country House is set in Stanmer Park and is a truly special space to say your always and forevers. The all white walls, gorgeous wood floors and gold details make for a lovely ceremony space. I also love the rich turquoise in the bar area – look how it just popped in this wedding.

If you’re looking for a trendy Art Deco wedding venue in Brighton, Patterns is a fantastic choice. They can accommodate up to 2oo guests, but the prettiest space in the venue is for smaller parties.
10. The Grand
The Grand in Brighton recently underwent a massive renovation – and it looks incredible! The Grand wedding venue is right on the Brighton seafront and has four fully-licensed event rooms: The Consort Room, The Regent Room, Empress Room, and GB2.

13. The Underbelly at The Walrus
Have you ever been inside The Walrus in Brighton? It. Is. MASSIVE. I think I’ve even found myself a bit lost in it a time or two when meeting up with friends. When you make your way upstairs from the traditional pub vibe, you find yourself in a very swish space – making it a great wedding venue in Brighton. “The Underbelly” holds up to 110 guests.
14. Hilton Brighton Metropole
Both the Clarence Suite and Ambassador Suite at the Hilton Brighton Metropole are great options for your wedding day. The Clarence Suite is actually a converted chapel that dates back to the 1800s, and the high vaulted ceilings are truly breathtaking. For an elegant, Art Deco vibe, the Ambassador suite is a perfect choice for the slightly smaller weddings.
If you still haven’t found the perfect spot after browsing this list, try calling up your favourite restaurant, pub or venue and see if they do private hires. Even if they don’t list it on their website, they might just be willing to host your wedding!
