WeddingS & Private celebrations

St Mary in the Castle is a hidden gem of a coastal wedding venue, nestled within the west cliffs on Hastings seafront.

The building is an impressive Grade II* listed former church built in the neo-classical style, it is now run as a live music, arts and wedding venue.

The centrepiece of the building is our stunning auditorium with an impressive intricate domed roof. This space is fully licensed to host wedding ceremonies and civil partnerships and can also be hired for wedding receptions, birthday parties and other celebrations.

Our venue offers a range of options. Whether you would like a small intimate ceremony with a handful of guests, a larger wedding reception or an evening party, our experienced in-house wedding and events consultant will be happy to discuss your requirements.

We have two fully staffed bars and work closely with three experienced catering companies who can personalise a menu to suit your needs and your budget. Alternatively, if you have a preferred caterer of your own talk to us about the possibility of using them as part of your special day.

We offer you a bespoke service where your celebration can be tailored to your personal needs, ensuring that every detail of your celebration runs smoothly, creating you a beautiful day to remember.
