Boutique, intimate and beautiful, Upwaltham Barns is one of West Sussex’s best barn wedding venues. A rustic rural retreat, this luxury venue is located in the stunning landscape of South Downs National Park. It is also next to the historic Goodwood House Estate and close to both Chichester and the coast, presenting plenty of picturesque photo opportunities.
Upwaltham Barns is a superb wedding venue with a unique and eclectic style; traditional Sussex flint long barns, a cosy Moroccan Snug and the charming Jasmine Cottage.
Adding a touch of history and heritage to Upwaltham Barns are the buildings themselves, attractive barns that have been lovingly restored externally to their original purpose. The slate tiles, original brickwork and timber frames combine together to create a traditional barn exterior which is aesthetically appealing. Internally the barns have also been refurbished, offering a more contemporary feel yet retaining some of the period features, including exposed brick walls and authentic wooden beams. East Barn, with its floor to ceiling windows allowing natural light to flood the building and offers breathtaking views of the rolling countryside, is typically used for the ceremony due to the pretty backdrop it provides. The Wedding Breakfast is served in South Barn, a rustic building that is comfortable and cosy, yet spacious enough to house a band and DJ in the evening.
The barns are set around a courtyard, within which sits the secluded Moroccan Snug. Vibrant and exotic, this inviting seating area is filled with chunky wooden furniture that has been dressed with cushions and throws in a rainbow of rich colours. A chill out area for guests, a place to enjoy a drink during the day and night, the Moroccan Snug gives Upwaltham Barns the fun factor.
Jasmine Cottage is a quintessential English cottage. Its shabby chic décor, distinctive pieces of antique furniture, freestanding roll top bath and ‘his and her’ hand basins work well together to create a romantic ambiance and provide a private place for the bride to get ready. With French windows that open up to a Juliet balcony overlooking the courtyard, the bride can even catch a glimpse of guests arriving. A stunning honeymoon suite, Jasmine cottage is also the perfect place to unwind after your big day.
Upwaltham Barns is a collection of fabulous barns and buildings set in an idyllic British countryside setting, making it one of the UK’s most loved wedding venues.
