Venue History: Nettlestead Place is a Manor house mentioned in the Doomsday Book. It was then owned by William 1st half brother Odo, Bishop of Bayeaux and Earl of Kent. The oldest part of the building still standing is the Undercroft and was built in 1250. In 1292 the de Pympe family took over from the de Wahulls. The present owners have lived in Nettlestead Place since 1978

Wedding Trivia:
The term originates from the sixteenth century. At that time a small piece of bread would be placed in a goblet of wine. The goblet would be passed from guest to guest until it reached the person being honored who would drain the goblet and eat the morsel of bread in the bottom. This tradition is practiced at weddings today - usually in the form of one or more champagne "toasts". The best man has the honor of giving the first toast. Usually the bride and groom remain seated for the toasts while all the guests are usually standing to honor them. The couple may then make a few remarks thanking their families, wedding party members, and guests. They may also "toast" each other or share a "toast" together. Often special glass or silver goblets are used by the bride and groom.
