Modern ceremonies

Wedding ceremonies take place in the De La Warr Pavilion’s 1930s auditorium, which is transformed into a beautifully lit and intimate space for a truly magical ceremony.

Our production design team can bring your ideas to life and create a wedding like no other.

There are two ceremony packages for you to select from.  We also offer reception packages (see below for information), so that your celebrations can continue in style. Ceremonies and receptions can be booked together or separately.

Modern receptions

Reception drinks are served at the top of our famous spiral staircase, where your guests can enjoy a glass of fizz with and take in the vast skies and sea views from the roof-top terrace. This is the ideal spot to capture beautiful wedding photographs.

At sunset, the Pavilion is entirely yours, to enjoy food and drink, with flavours as modern, fresh and bold as the surroundings. Our Head Chef will create a wedding feast using the finest local ingredients, including freshly caught fish from our neighbouring fishing town of Hastings.

Modern parties

As night falls, the celebrations continue on the first floor with its long bar, balcony and dance floor area. Evening guests are welcome to join the revelry, so you have the opportunity to extend your guest list if you wish.

The stunning architecture of the building is illuminated by night, giving you a spectacularly stylish setting in which to turn the music up, and enjoy partying with your family and friends.
