Your wedding – your way…

Duncton Mill Fishery - Wedding Receptions

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.

Duncton Mill Fishery - Wedding Boat

We also have a beautiful 14 ft wooden rowing boat decorated with bunting and pretty cushions now available for hire. The boat can be moored off the jetty beside the marquee, with tables, chairs and hay bales for additional outdoor seating allowing guests to enjoy the beautiful sun set over the South Downs.

Lanterns are positioned around the lakes, providing the perfect setting for ending your special day.

Dinner parties or private evening functions can also be accommodated and catered for in our comfortable, modern club house-an historic venue guaranteed to impress your guests or clients.

There is ample parking under the trees in the orchard which we decorate with bunting, though there is ample hard standing parking available for those who may be less mobile.

We receive many warm letters of appreciation – read some here.
