Ravenswood - Where Fairytale Settings Meet Exquisite Wedding Flowers in Sussex


Ravenswood is an amazingly popular Sussex wedding venue, where we have frequently had the privilege of embellishing its architecture and grounds with our bespoke flower arrangements. As a passionate wedding florist in West Sussex, we specialise in complimenting the historic beauty of venues such as Ravenswood, adorning the enchanting building which is nestled in this idyllic South of England location. Our floral arrangements dance harmoniously with the venue's rich history and ethereal spaces, creating breathtaking scenes throughout the ceremonial space.




Ravenswood Wedding Venue: A Historical Gem in Sussex

The Perfect Canvas for Your Fairytale Wedding


Ravenswood was built in part during the reign of Henry VI in the year 1426, though of this original structure little remains, and that that does, is now confined mainly to the core of the present building, which the majority of, was erected during the mid and latter years of Queen Victoria. The history of the estate is fascinating - find out more here

The Baronial hall is your other choice of Ceremony or reception area - a traditional wood-panelled room with a fireplace and staircase to make your entrance (and decorate!). Gorgeous for the cooler months of the year.

The fireplace doesn't have a mantlepiece so the options to decorate it, are above on the railings or beside it with pedestals or free-standing columns or deconstructed arches.
