The perfect venue
Edes House, Chichester, is a Grade 1 listed building dating back to 1696. We have five licensed ceremony rooms, ranging in size from the small intimate ceremony for up to sixteen, to our Richmond Room which seats eighty.
Guests can arrive via the grand front entrance and there is a lovely welcoming foyer where they can congregate.
Our stewards will be on hand throughout the ceremony to ensure your wedding runs smoothly.
Venue hire fees
Prices vary, according to when you decide to hold your ceremony and the size of the room you choose. Prices up until December 2018 range from £565-£860.
Hire of the house gives you exclusive use for two hours. This allows for half an hour before the ceremony for your guests to arrive and be seated, and for yourselves to meet the registrars.
The ceremony takes just under half an hour, leaving you an hour after the ceremony for photos, drinks, canapés or afternoon tea - the choice is yours.
In addition to the venue hire, the registrars need to be booked to attend the ceremony. Cost for the registrar’s attendance at approved licensed venues can be found on our Ceremony fees page.
