Southend Barns wedding venue, West Sussex

The wedding venue

Open since June 2012, Southend Barns is a family-run wedding venue located on what was once a working farm. Influenced by its rural setting and history but with plenty of stylish and contemporary touches, the venue offers a beautiful balance of old meets new.

The expansive open spaces, manicured gardens and tranquil courtyards create a perfect backdrop to your special day with plenty of magical spots for your wedding day photography.

Embracing the agricultural heritage of Southend Barns, the refurbished barns combine rustic charm with modern amenities and stylish decor.

Eco-friendly wedding barns and more

Built and run to be as eco-friendly as possible, the wedding barns have been carefully restored to create the perfect setting for a romantic civil ceremony and wedding reception.

Set in luscious landscaped gardens with hidden courtyards and a terrace bar, you and your guests can enjoy a real piece of paradise.
