Winter transforms Goodwood into a magical place with crisp, cold days bringing the warm glow of dim-lit lights and flickering candlelight, the welcome of log res and the smell of home-cooked food filing the air – the perfect setting for a wedding. The Goodwood Hotel is simply perfect for a winter wedding, as everything is considered with the utmost care. You and your guests won’t need to venture out into the cold, unless wrapped up warm to make the most of the stunning wooded parkland on our doorstep for a pre-wedding walk, or for your beautiful photographs.
Whether an al-fresco reception on a warm summer’s evening, or a cosy, re lit winter wedding, the Hotel is a versatile venue with a number of beautifully designed function rooms that can accommodate up to 150 guests. Goodwood’s team of experienced Wedding Co-ordinators are on hand at all times and are unashamedly obsessed with perfection, helping to ensure your special day is delivered precisely as you’d always dreamed.
Like the iconic Goodwood Estate itself, the Hotel is rich in history, dating back to the 18th Century, with the Richmond Arms, the Hotel’s restaurant and bar, set in the wonderfully restored coaching inn, which can provide an intimate setting for a ceremony.
Couples at The Goodwood Hotel are also in a unique position of being able to choose from a bespoke menu of Estate-reared and locally sourced seasonal produce for their wedding reception. There is an abundance of fresh fare from Goodwood Home Farm, which makes for a mouth-watering and memorable wedding breakfast of hearty, warming dishes, expertly prepared by our talented chefs.
The magnificent Cedar Suite can cater for up to 120 guests, great to style for those long winter evenings with flickering candles to create a warm, romantic atmosphere, or bring the outdoors in with real Christmas trees to scent the air.
Not forgetting the Summer months, the Hotel has a beautiful canopy on the Cedar Lawn which is a flexible space, perfect for all manner of themes or dining options, from an informal barbecue to a quintessentially British Afternoon Tea.
The Hotel itself has 91 fantastic bedrooms and suites, so guests need not to worry about driving home, and can enjoy the Hotel’s luxurious features, including the indoor heated swimming pool, steam room and sauna – perfect for a spot of TLC to recover from the big day.
