From the minute we first stepped foot in The Bell, we knew it was where we wanted to get married. It’s not a traditional wedding venue, which is exactly what we were looking for. It’s quirky with a relaxed vibe and made for such a fun wedding. Tessa, Eve and the team were amazing throughout. Nothing was too much trouble and we could really make the day our own. The chef, Oscar, is also great and the food is AMAZING – all of our guests agreed. Our favourite things include the awesome red carpet (where we had our ceremony), the seriously good Chef’s dessert banquet and the gorgeous rooms (especially the Lodges and Love Nest). Can’t wait to return to celebrate our anniversary!

The Bell was the perfect venue for our February wedding and we received nothing but compliments about it.
As amazing as the space and decor is, it's really the staff that make this venue what it is. They're great. From the planning phase with Tessa, to the staff on shift in the bars and kitchens, and those specifically looking after things during the event (we had Eve and Hannah), they all get involved with as much or as little as you'd like and ensure that everything goes smoothly which allowed us to enjoy the day.

We had the most wonderful winter wedding at the Bell Inn, filled with twinkling lights, crackling fires, winter pimms and a live band. All our close family and friends gathered for a cosy day to celebrate our next chapter. We couldn't have achieved such a magical day without the help of Tessa and the Bell crew. We didn't think the wedding would even go ahead because of the bride being so ill. But it all happened in the end and it was everything we dreamed. Thank you so much xx

Wow!! That was the reaction from all our guests after the most special day for our wedding. The venue is truly unique, both inside and out, and provides a relaxed setting. The staff were brilliant, especially Tessa and Eve, as nothing was too much trouble and their relaxed approach puts you at ease. The food was exceptional - we are still getting comments about how it was the best wedding food anyone has had. We also loved the fire pit and sparkler experience at the end of the night. I am so happy we chose this venue as it couldn't have been more perfect for relaxed foodies like ourselves. We look forward to coming back, staying and eating here every year. Thank you The Bell.

We got married at The Bell in October and it was hands down the best day of our lives.
Tess and the wedding team made sure everything ran smoothly throughout planning and on the day, which meant we really didn't have to worry about a thing!
Hannah & Paul - Sept 18
Once again thank you for your help, Tessa, in making everything stress free.
We had a wonderful day and were so lucky with the weather.
So lovely to meet you, and thank the wonderful staff at The Bell including Eve and Rae.. they looked after us!
Chloe & Dave - Aug 18
We started by searching for 'quirky wedding venues' and The Bell appeared. As soon as we arrived, we knew this was the place. We were actually in 'quirky' heaven, from the trombone urinals to the bowler hat lamp shades, The Bell ticked all the boxes. Tessa and the staff were all so helpful and welcoming. Our expectations were exceeded and we had an amazing day and night, topped off by a stay in 'The Love Nest'. We booked all the hotel rooms for our family and friends, who absolutely fell in love with the place!! To sum up…great food, the best staff, stunning rooms, beautiful garden and the perfect wedding day!! Oh and our dog, Pablo, loved it too!!!!
James & Greg - Jul 18
"We were looking for a venue that would be informal, intimate and most of all, dog-friendly as we wanted our boys to be part of our big day. The minute we visited The Bell, we knew it was The One! Tessa helped us plan the entire event, from rooms and a welcome dinner for our guests the night before to every detail of our wedding day itself. We got exactly the wedding we wanted: relaxed, perfectly paced and a lot of fun! Everyone remarked on how helpful and friendly the enthusiastic and talented staff at The Bell were, and The Love Nest was a big talking point, so much so that we ended up shooing our guests off our roof terrace so we could get some peace!"

“We can't speak highly enough of how great our wedding was. Tessa, our contact in the run-up, is an efficient, lovely, friendly and caring girl - an absolute star. Chloe, who ran the show on the day, kept it moving along perfectly and was brilliant in ensuring the day was smooth and hitch-free (apart from the getting-hitched bit!). Matt and the rest of the team grafted away tirelessly and were brilliant both on the day and with the gentle service at breakfast the next morning! Jorge and Oscar, the Colombian gents at front of house and in the kitchen - awesome food guys, thanks so much.And the rooms are stunning, unique and lovely. Thank you so much, we'll never forget you!”
April & Sue - May 18
From the moment we walked into the Bell we knew we would be married there. We were totally overwhelmed with how perfect the venue was for us....the attention to detail, the decor, originality and size of the venue was totally unexpected, with the added bonus of the perfect English country garden. It was important to us to choose a venue where the food was as good as the setting, and it was! We were super impressed with all the staff, from the organisation from our wedding planner Tess, to the waitressing and bar staff on the day, nothing was too much trouble. Our guests were as enthralled as we were, and everyone fell in love with the place. Thank you for the perfect wedding.
Diane & Martin - May 18
"We had the perfect wedding at The Bell. Everything leading up to it was carefully covered by the lovely Tessa and the day itself couldn't have gone better for us, helped along by the tireless Chloe and the rest of the events team.
It went like clockwork and many, many of our guests have commented on how much the venue contributed to our day. We'll be back time and again. Thanks, all."
Lauren & Karl - Apr 18
"We kept hearing The Bell mentioned as a wedding venue so threw it into the venue pot mix at the last minute, only to walk round it and know straight away that it was just perfect for us. We loved its quirky style and the intimate feel of it. The fact the whole wedding party could stay on site was a bonus but we also loved having the outside space as well as inside.We have had so many comments from everyone about how much they loved the venue and that the food was stunning - which it was. Tessa was an amazing wedding coordinator and the day just ran so smoothly. I would highly recommend this wedding venue to any prospective bride and groom."
Isabel & Lee - Mar 18
"We got married at The Bell in Ticehurst on 3rd March 2018 in the snow! It was absolutely magical. The Bell is such an amazing and welcoming venue with so much character. The staff were fantastic and the day ran so smoothly, we had nothing to do except enjoy our day. The accommodation is of a very high standard, classy and cosy, and the food was stunning.
Our wedding was intimate and memorable, I can’t wait to go back to The Bell for our first anniversary to relive our memories."
