Set on a working farm in the beautiful West Sussex countryside, Southend Barns has been lovingly restored to create a wonderful wedding barn venue. Surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens and peaceful courtyards, it is a truly magical setting for your wedding celebration.
Our simple yet romantic Dairy Barn is fully licensed for all Civil Ceremonies and partnerships. With a sweeping aisle, exposed wooden beams and benches made of sweet chestnut, the wedding barn is a truly idyllic setting for couples to exchange vows. Nestled in a tranquil spot between our resident alpaca’s field and the romantic flint walls of the Dairy Barn is our outdoor wedding ceremony garden, known as The Secret Garden.
You can dine and dance the night away in our magnificent 200-year-old Threshing Barn which radiates rustic charm, with its authentic wooden beams and wrought iron chandeliers. The large windows provide you with stunning views of the surrounding gardens and sunsets over the South Downs.
A picturesque courtyard lies at the heart of the venue, with its luscious lawn, well-kept pots and Cornish slate patio lined with dairy inspired milk churns – it is the perfect spot for photographs and for mingling with your guests over drinks and canapés.
As evening falls, the gardens are lit with romantic up-lights that show off the fantastic flint and log walls of the wedding barns. Here guests can gather around the relaxing Collecting Yard with its sumptuous sofas and fire pit to enjoy an enchanting evening setting.The Collecting Yard has subtle glass screens so you and your guests can still enjoy being outside whatever the weather.
Relax and prepare for your big day in the calm and luxurious surroundings of the bridal suite, which is located in its own private courtyard and rose garden.
