Your Sussex Wedding - February/March 2023 (Issue 101)

UCKFIELD AND AROUND Spotlight on... Tie the knot in a local hotspot TRADING BOUNDARIES 01825 790 200 | Established 27 years ago, Trading Boundaries is one of the UK’s leading importers of Indian furniture, award-winning live music venue, fully-licensed cafe-bar and the world’s first fine art gallery dedicated to the work of iconic album design artist Roger Dean. This luxuriously refurbished Grade II listed Georgian coaching inn is situated in stylish surroundings with vistas of fields and woodlands set against landscaped grounds providing a stunning heritage location for your countryside wedding. THE “I DOS” The venue is fully licensed for ceremonies, but can also offer celebrant-led ceremonies in the bespoke Indian Marquees, Indian Temple Trellis or out under the canopy of 200-year-old oaks on the landscaped lawns. For indoor “I dos” the venue is able to offer use of the charming, atmospheric restaurant that can accommodate up to 180 of your loved ones. It features elegant Indian decoration, fairylit archways and glorious Georgian details. If you prefer a church wedding however, Trading Boundaries is located within four short miles of seven popular local churches. DINE UNDER CANVAS Designed by the venue’s team and handcrafted in India, the two marquees offer enchanting spaces for mingling with guests and enjoying the wedding breakfast. They feature gold block-print ceiling linings and an abundance of voile curtains, Jodhpur tassels, carved wooden finials and charming decorative hand-printed patterns. The marquees can be decorated individually and divided with panels for extra atmosphere or left open to create a single event space. Depending on the weather, you can leave the sides to float in a gentle breeze or have them open. Both are weatherproof and well-lit in the evenings. Each marquee offers comfortable seating for up to 90 loved ones and together host up to 180 including the top top table. CELEBRATE IN STYLE The newly renovated restaurant is sprinkled with fairylights and beautifully decorated Indian archways, providing intimate and enchanting surroundings for your evening reception for up to 180 guests. With dedicated bars run by friendly and knowledgeable staff, a sunken fairylit dancefloor, and a stage area with theatre-quality sound and lighting, you’ll want for nothing on the night. A PLACE TO REST YOUR HEAD There are eight boutique hotel rooms on site for you and your guests to stay in over the course of your wedding. Set in the grounds each room is en-suite and delightfully decorated in fusion Indian style. © Oli Clifford LOCAL VENUES 19
