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 so you and your guests can dance the night away!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
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 is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't forget that its your day, almost all elements of it can be bespoke and dont be afraid to think big!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
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....
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Grand. Rustic. Beams. Fairy Lights. Countryside.
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
My favourite is by the big oak tree behind the barn!
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
Yes, but shhh!
What’s your favourite canapé?
Proper Yorkshire Pudding, Rare Beef, Béarnaise Sauce. DIVINE!
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?
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!
What part of your business are you most proud of?
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!'
