WITH breathtaking scenery and historic architecture, it comes as little surprise that Bignor Park is fast becoming the go-to wedding venue.
Bignor Park has revealed it has received an unprecedented number of wedding enquiries so far this year, with 113 enquiries since January, and seven couples have booked weddings for the summer while two weddings are already booked for 2016.
The figures, according to Viscount Mersey, Ned Bigham, owner of Bignor Park, indicate a trend towards couples becoming engaged and wanting to get married within a shorter period of time.
“We have been absolutely astonished by the interest,” he said.
Bignor Park is one of only two wedding locations in Sussex to hold an outdoor wedding licence and this year, all 11 wedding bookings have chosen to have a civil ceremony.
“It’s great couples are wanting to enjoy their whole day with us.”
Bignor Park hosts one wedding e week and allows a maximum of 12 weddings a year.
“Every wedding should be personal and tailored to each couple, we’re certainly not in the business of conveyor-belt weddings.”
