Autumn (September, October and November) is a beautiful time to get married at Chilston Park Hotel; the leaves of the trees that fill our grounds begin to change colour from vibrant greens into soft browns, burning oranges and rich reds, creating a spectacular backdrop for your wedding day.
Halloween brings decorating options that would look out of place during other times of the year. Elegantly shaved pumpkins can illuminate the aisle in our Orangery for your ceremony and bouquets can be full of berries and autumnal foliage filling your wedding photos with beautiful colours. Layers of amber, burgundies and plum are perfectly suited to this Sussex wedding venue.
Autumn food is undeniably tasty and hearty. Pot roasted pheasant followed by caramel apple cheesecake pudding, all of these foods can be included in your wedding menus and add warmth to a possibly chilly day. Feature signature cocktails like Pumpkin Martinis and Apple Cider Mimosas as the bride and groom's choice at your drinks reception.
A bonfire night wedding is a unique way to celebrate your special day with your guests. Our favourite bonfire night traditions for a wedding day are Kahlua spiced hot chocolate and toffee apples! And what better excuse to end your celebrations than with a fireworks display overlooking our picturesque lawn.
