CIVIL MARRIAGES AND PARTNERSHIP CEREMONIES
We are licensed to hold civil ceremonies in our sitting room, which can comfortably seat 50 guests, with space for a further 50 guests to stand as well as our gazebo next to the stream in the garden, should you want an outdoors wedding. As soon as you have arranged a provisional date with us, please contact West Sussex Council Registration Department, on 01243 642122, to check that they can attend or click here to book online.
RECEPTION TIMINGS AND REFRESHMENTS
If you are to be married in a church or have a civil ceremony in a registry office, we recommend that you aim to arrive at the Millstream by around 12.30pm. You can enjoy aperitifs and perhaps some canapés, in the garden or sitting room, whilst photographs are taken.
We will invite you and your guests to sit down for lunch by about 1.30pm. After dessert, it is traditional for us to serve a glass of Champagne or Sparkling Wine for the toasts. After the speeches, coffee and wedding cake is then served, from a buffet, in the garden or sitting room. We will keep the bar open until 5.00pm and the reception will need to finish by then. (As we need to prepare the dining room to serve resident guests in the evening, we regret that we are unable to offer you our facilities beyond that point). Should you wish to continue your celebrations into the evening, you may wish to consider Bosham Village Hall, which can comfortably accommodate up to 200 people. Please telephone 01243 574072 for further details.
Our tastefully decorated restaurant is flexible in layout and comprises two adjoining rooms at right angles, with a connecting area between them. The total capacity is 72. The “Sea School” can accommodate up to 40 guests. We can produce table plans & place cards for you at no additional charge and can also offer you free use of our silver cake-stand (round or square) and knife.
