The elegant wedding and banqueting suites at the Felbridge Hotel and Spa at East Grinstead, Sussex are undergoing a stylish top-to-toe refurbishment in line with its £3million rebranding as the Crowne Plaza Felbridge.
Whether planning a small intimate wedding or a more lavish affair, the hotel has luxurious rooms catering from 10 to 500 guests, and all numbers in between; it’s also licensed for civil ceremonies so the entire wedding day can be held in one beautiful place. The courtyard and gardens also provide the perfect backdrop for wedding photographs creating lasting memories of a special day.
One of the largest wedding and party venues in the South East, the Grand Ballroom can accommodate up to 500 guests for a civil ceremony or evening reception
and 330 for a sit down wedding breakfast; extra wide doors allow for staging and special effects equipment. It can also be reduced in size with the use of flexible, acoustic sliding walls, providing greater versatility and adaptability for wedding planners.
For smaller weddings, the Treo Suite has space for 80 guests for a civil ceremony and wedding breakfast and 150 for a reception. There’s also a choice of six more elegant suites, depending on the wedding size.
The bride and groom can bring in their own caterers for both food and drink (corkage charge applies), which makes it an ideal venue for Asian weddings. Alternatively,they can choose from four wedding packages, priced from just £65 per person, or plan their own bespoke day working closely with the wedding team. Couples can also take advantage of some fantastic special offers for weddings confirmed by specific dates. Vegetarian and special dietary needs can be met and there’s also a children’s menu.
Wedding guests will be able to stay in the hotel’s 116 newly refurbished bedrooms at a special rate, while the bridal couple will be offered a complimentary honeymoon suite and champagne as part of their wedding package. All the hotel’s public areas and the Bay Tree restaurant are also being refurbished and the Chakra Spa, with its five treatment rooms, gym, indoor pool and steam room, is receiving a facelift.
