Set on a working farm in the stunning West Sussex countryside, the converted farm buildings and beautiful landscaped gardens at Southend Barns are built and run using the latest environmentally sustainable technology.
The lovingly restored barn complex features a magnificent 200 year old Threshing Barn, which radiates rustic charm with authentic wooden beams and iron wrought chandeliers. This combined with stylish contemporary touches, such as the unique concrete polished floor make the barn an ideal venue for any wedding party. Sitting adjacent to this is the Dairy Barn, which is fully licensed for all civil ceremonies and partnerships. With a wonderful sweeping 22 metre aisle, neutral colour scheme and handmade sweet chestnut benches, the barn is an idyllic setting for loved ones to exchange their vows.
Couples can also make use of the calm and luxurious surroundings of the bridal suite, known as the Milking Parlour, which is located in its own private courtyard. Once used as a dairy parlour it has now been revamped to have a large living room area, luxurious bathroom and bedroom. The bridal suite has been designed to feel like a home from home for couples but with beautiful Gezelligheidinspired touches including the grey colour theme, wooden furniture and overall cosy atmosphere. Surrounding the venue there are beautiful landscaped gardens complete with a water feature garden, enclosed central courtyard that is perfect for younger guests and garden games, hidden orchard and resident alpacas. Flowers and plants are a passion of ours so the gardens have been designed to look glorious throughout all the changing seasons. Being based on a farm the venue is also surrounded by fields and views of the countryside that are perfect for photo opportunities, particularly at sunset. As evening falls, the gardens are lit with romantic uplights 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 a truly magical evening setting; the perfect end to a perfect day.
