South Downs Marquees   01730 819976

We have operated out of hundreds of marquees having spent many years running our own successful event catering business, Jacaranda Catering. During the last 20 years we have realised there are very few marquee hire companies whose attention to detail and dedication to providing the best possible service matched our own work ethic. This is the inspiration that has driven us to create our very own boutique marquee company; we’re not aiming to be the biggest, but to simply be the best.

No matter what the occasion, you can be sure that every detail from our initial site assessment to the last peg that goes into the ground will have been seen to. We provide only the most luxurious line of products and keep to immaculate standards in order to ensure that you have the crisp, clean, immaculate marquee you desire.

Jonathan, Ian and the team at South Downs Marquees look forward to discussing your ideas and requirements with you.

Bignor Park is a dream venue for wedding ceremonies and receptions. It epitomises rural elegance and offers flexibility and exclusivity.

We provide you with the backdrop, the rest is up to your imagination and aspirations to create the perfect day. You can be sure it will be a unique experience, because the versatility of our setting means you can choose exactly how you want it – a day that is yours and yours alone.

But more than that, because Bignor Park is family-run and we limit our availability for weddings to twelve couples per year, we can go the extra mile to make sure your wedding runs smoothly, and you and your guests are relaxed, excited and have a great time.

For example, we understand the importance of feeling calm and under control as you prepare for your wedding day which is why we only ever accept one booking per weekend. In addition, marquee and equipment deliveries can be co-ordinated and decorations in place up to two days beforehand, so from a Thursday onwards for a Saturday wedding.    

We fully appreciate how important it is to feel comfortable with your surroundings, so we are happy for you to visit as many times as you need to over the months and weeks running up to your big day - for example with your family, florist or photographer. We welcome weddings in all seasons and are a dog-friendly venue.

Duncton Mill Fishery is regarded as one of the finest waterside venues in West Sussex available for wedding reception hire.

We are a family run business and only hold a limited number of weddings beside the lakes each year, we can therefore go that extra mile to ensure that your wedding runs smoothly. We are able to offer you a personal service and are on hand to support you in the months leading you to your wedding and most importantly on your special day itself.

We are primarily a marquee reception site, and our beautiful venue gives you scope to create an original wedding that you and your guests won‘t forget. You can be as hands on or off as you like – we want to give you the flexibility to put as much of ‘you’ into your special day as you want. No pre-packaged weddings here!

We don’t have set caterers or marquee companies and we don’t charge corkage so you can save money by catering yourselves and bringing your own drinks. We won’t tell you what décor or colour schemes you have to use, the stunning lakeside location nestled at the foot of the South Downs is enough to inspire you and creates the perfect backdrop to your celebrations

Our location is superb, being an easy commute from London, and nestled just below the South Downs in an area of outstanding natural beauty, near the A285 (4 miles south of Petworth and 7 miles north of Chichester). The facilities we offer are of the highest standard with all modern conveniences, yet preserving the rustic charm of the site.

Since we understand that every wedding is unique, couples can choose a marquee company and caterers, giving total flexibility, ensuring that your special day is exactly as you want. 

The evening can finish with fireworks across the lake – a wonderful sight watching the reflections of the fireworks in the water.
