Full Description
The stunning Apple Barn is licensed for your civil ceremony. With beautiful views, your outdoor ceremony is in a truly magical setting, with the option to hold your ceremony inside our marquee. Following your ceremony, we encourage you to enjoy the acres of land for photographs and activities, retiring to the Crown Barn terrace for your drinks reception. Meanwhile, you can take the opportunity to visit our lakes for your stunning wedding photos and take in the beautiful Sussex countryside as the new Mr & Mrs! The Crown Barn is ideal for your wedding celebrations, accommodating 200 guests for a wedding breakfast, a daytime minimum number of 80 guests. The barn was hand-built using local oak, brick and stone and has been finished with exposed beams and gothic-inspired chandeliers. The barn’s features are modern yet rustic and provide the ideal canvas for your reception. An entire side of the barn can be opened up to let the outside in; you can have the feel of an outdoor event without the commitment to unpredictable weather. Our newly paved drinks reception area is beautifully sheltered by stunning willow trees, creating a relaxed place in which to enjoy a few refreshments and your guests’ company, with benches, outdoor seating and even Fire Pits. You will be able to design your own wedding breakfast with the assistance of our critically acclaimed Head Chef. From creative canapes, to formal three-course meals to hog roasts and street food, there are there are a variety of dishes plus the opportunity to experience some of Circa's quirky evening food options such as The Circa Pizza Van, Bert & Ernie Street Food Karts & Bev the Gelato Bike. Our Gothic inspired rustic barn lends itself perfectly to big evening celebrations, with capacity for up to 250 guests, dancefloor included and sofa booths for your guests to kick back and watch the festivities. Our Resident DJ will play all your favourite tunes so you and your guests can dance the night away!

Perfect venue
We had our wedding at Laughton barns last weekend. We had a perfect day. Circa events were amazing. I felt like we were in safe hands throughout the entire planning process. The communication was great and we were emailed back promptly. When we weren’t sure after our first tasting circa organised another with no fuss. We also changed the menu and added an extra course to the BBQ menu which was no trouble for them. The venue is lovely, we had a windy outdoor ceremony. The sound guy was very professional. The terrace is lovely for drinks. We had a fire pit in the evening which was great fun. The barn itself is lovely. We also hired games & had s bouncy castle on the grass outside. The staff on the day were incredibly professional and kind. They really were amazing. Liv was amazing, she really went above and beyond for us. She always supported our choices and made the day run so smoothly. I was so impressed by her friendly but professional attitude and execution. She was on top of everything, we didn’t worry about a thing all night. She even put my phone on aeroplane mode to save battery & made sure it was safe when I just left it lying around! She knew the answer to every query we had and no job was too big. We went for long tables (which i think is a first for Laughton) and circa helped with organising these through a different company. This was really helpful and made planning a little easier (just one example of an extra mile they went to save us having to search for hours) I was too busy dancing but apparently the pizza was absolutely incredible! Highly recommend as our guests loved it. Thank you so much Liv & the whole circa team xxx

The best day ever!
So where do we begin on this venue! From the moment we walked into Laughton and met Liv we knew that we wanted to have our wedding there! The Barn is just the right about of rustic and elegance. We could see this would be the perfect space for our family and friends to enjoy dinner! The added bonus of an outdoor wedding provided the English weathers on your side was just what we were looking for. Circa have so many food options we struggled to decide which one we wanted but from the tasting we went to all the food looks amazing and tastes great to! With different needs from vegan to halal options they catered for all our guests. There are so many possibilities at the venue and the team as so good at helping you make it work! I couldn’t thank them enough!!! They respond to emails as quickly as possible and as many times as you need!

FAQ
(10)

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

I just love the personal experience at Laughton. We build great relationships with our clients and seeing it all come together on the day is just wonderful, the usual phrase is 'You did it!'

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Its too hard to pick - each is unique, each couple have their own vision for the day! Personally I love it when the barn is filled with fresh flowers and lots of greenery. We've had all sorts of quirky ideas from a family sports day with afternoon tea to a Chinese Tea Ceremony.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Proper Yorkshire Pudding, Rare Beef, Béarnaise Sauce. DIVINE!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Don't forget that its your day, almost all elements of it can be bespoke and dont be afraid to think big!

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Its a very 'Sussex' Barn in design, a bit quirky and not your usual modern construction. Our new white gazebo at the end of the aisle over by the ceremony barn is my favourite addition of the year!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Grand. Rustic. Beams. Fairy Lights. Countryside.

What’s your favourite canapé?

I love it when people have an ink-stamp made for their wedding, either a logo or their initials - you'd be surprised how many things can be stamped....

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Our Circa Pizza Van - honestly the pizza is so yummy, I usually try and convince Chef to make me one to take home at the end of the night...sometimes works!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Yes, but shhh!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

My favourite is by the big oak tree behind the barn!
