It was everything and more. The First and ONLY venue we saw - we knew from the first meeting with Tessa it was the place for us. Relaxed, different to the norm, and amazing attention to detail. We had so many compliments from our guests on the venue, friendly and attentive staff and the epic food. We loved the whole day, it was just magical.
Finally we managed to get married at this amazing venue, our date was postponed 4 times as we went into the first lockdown only 7 days before our original date. Having said this nothing was ever too much trouble for Tess the wedding coordinator who was caring, proactive and just brilliant. I honestly can not thank her enough for all that she did for us! The venue is second to none, relaxed, quirky but with great attention to detail, all our guests adored it. The food and drinks were superb and staff were fantastic. Accommodation is unique and very special the bridal party stayed the night before the wedding which worked wonderfully and I used Nicola Downey for hair ( one of the recommended suppliers) who was superb. Our guests accommodated all of the rooms on the wedding night and loved them!. The fire pit after dark with sparklers and marshmallows was just magical as were the gardens , a perfect little oasis. We will be back for our anniversary for sure and if your looking for a unique, special place to create amazing memories, this is it
Well, what can we say! We had THE most amazing, incredible, beautiful day and it’s all thanks to The Bell. All of our guests have said it was the perfect venue, and they’re not wrong.
Tessa, the wedding organiser there, was absolutely brilliant from booking our first viewing of The Bell right through to the day itself. Luckily we didn’t have to move our date at all but we had planned two ‘versions’ of the wedding as our day was close to when all Covid restrictions were supposed to lift. Despite having some last minute unwanted restrictions, Tessa and The Bell made it all work superbly and really did enable us to have the day we had imagined.
Jess and Bryce who looked after us on the day were amazing , as was the whole team! Food service was so quick, no one was left with an empty glass and the day ran smoothly with no hiccups.
We stayed overnight with our families and a few friends and the rooms are all amazing, beds are so comfy, showers brilliant and breakfast was great! The best part is we can (and will!) return for anniversaries etc and relive some of the magic.
We honestly can’t thank them enough for everything they did for us, if you’re reading this and haven’t booked a venue yet, book a viewing with Tessa right now!
Just had our wonderful wedding at the Bell Inn ,Ticehurst. Absolutely fantastic,from the attentive staff to the beautiful ceremony room,which has exquisite hand painted wallpaper,incidentally this looks fantastic in the photos.Tessa had to rearrange our date four times and never got stressed. The food was perfect and they catered for vegetarians and vegans. Excellent choice of wines,we had already done our taster menu and it was exactly what we expected,the guests all commented. I can’t rate this venue highly enough,it’s relaxed and quirky but the attention to detail is of a five star standard. There’s an excellent local florist and plenty of fantastic specialists in wedding hair and make up within close proximity. Bryce and Jess took care of the whole day and were first class. Thank you,you won’t be disappointed if you choose to have a wedding here.
After three date changes and a change of venue we finally were able to get married at the Bell!! It was well worth the wait and it was the most perfect day. We went from a wedding of 80 down to just 23 family members due to covid but that didn't stop us tieing the knot! The venue is incredible and extremely unique. It's very true about being " a place like no other".
Tessa was very welcoming and helped us organise the most incredible wedding with our family. She was very approachle and reassuring when we had to move our date during the second lockdown. Despite all the changes, it happened and the team made our day run so smoothly. We truly could relax in the comfort of our nearest and dearest!
The Bell and the wonderful team that work there provided us with everything we needed for a day, and wedding eve, that provided more happiness, fun, laughter and joy than we could have imagined. Through a few lockdown induced date changes, Tessa ("Head of Weddings") was incredibly supportive, kind and a brilliant sounding board as we each tried to fathom out what we could do within the "restrictions". We didn't feel restricted at all - you couldn't at the Bell. It's a one off location which we have loved for many years and every member of the team that played a part in our day was brilliant and part of our happy memories. Oscar and his team create sensational food; Tessa and her team on the day couldn't have done more for us and our guests. Everyone loved it. We'd love to do it all again but will find plenty of other celebrations to return for; again and again. We will always be happy we discovered the Bell - we were only ever going to be married here. We didn't consider anywhere else.
We had the most magical pre-Christmas wedding at The Bell and truly the team made our day the best possible. We got married just before an almost full lock down - yet we felt safe, well taken care of and the staff was as attentive and joyful – no detail was too small and no request to large. Tessa our Wedding Manager took the best care of us- and had guided us via phone and email for almost a year prior to the wedding! The Bell is the most unique venue, full of quirks and amazingly curated decoration- we love it so much!
We had the most beautiful wedding, even though Covid restictions had meant that we moved from 30 to only 4 guests, it was still so very special thanks to the hard work and extreme patience of Tessa and Team Bell - Nothing was too much for them! It really is the most amazing venue with quirky characteristics and decor, unique bedrooms and fabulous food. We have been here on a number of occasions and it is our No.1 top stay. It was a day that we will treasure in our hearts forever and can't wait to go back soon.
We had the most perfect wedding at The Bell, we cannot recommend it enough. Tessa went out of her way to make the day special for us and was very flexible with our requests. The food was incredible and the stay was comfortable and quirky.
I could not recommend The Bell enough!! It was the perfect chilled out, relaxed venue for our Wedding of the century! Our guests still tell us how fabulous our day was and that it was hands down THE BEST WEDDING they had ever been to. Tessa is incredible, couldn’t do enough for us and was super patient with my constantly interfering parents...! Tessa and her team made sure we had everything we could need and went above and beyond to ensure everything ran smoothly. We would happily do it every year if we could! Thank you guys, we can’t wait to see you again soon xxx
