Set in the rolling hills of the South Downs National Park, Cissbury Barns is a romantic and relaxed setting for a dream wedding. As you approach through the long scenic driveway the beautiful rustic barns are revealed in all their glory.
Both of the barns are licensed for wedding ceremonies and the venue offers exclusive use of the grounds. Authentic brickwork and original oak beams are just some of the wonderful features of these truly magnificent barns so it’s no surprise that this is such a popular venue to tie the knot!
After the wedding ceremony, couple’s can kick back and relax in the Ceremonial garden and idyllic courtyard for their reception drinks in a peaceful and tranquil setting.
Also on offer is the lambing pens for a unique and novel bar plus lounge area including a Pentanque court for entertaining outdoor games. The venue can accommodate up to 120 guests and suits anywhere from the more intimate wedding to larger, lavish affairs.
Steph and Neil are a relaxed and fun-loving couple who married at these beautiful barns in the Spring. The day began around the corner in local accommodation where Steph and her bridal party got ready for the day. The bride looked fantastic as she arrived and met Neil at the end of the aisle to exchange their vows. It was an eloquent ceremony with both couples clearly very excited and I knew this was going to be a wonderful wedding.
Afterwards the newlyweds emerged from the barns to handfuls of confetti and the gorgeous sunshine helped to create a peaceful and laid back atmosphere in the garden as the guests flocked to congratulate Steph and Neil. After they’d had plenty of fizz it was time for some romantic time alone and I lead them around the ground to take in the wonderful scenery.
There were some moving speeches and hysterical laughter as the speeches got underway and there was love and excitement filling the air. As the sun went down we nipped out in to the fields for five minutes for some beautiful golden hour photos before it was time for the first dance to begin.
Steph and Neil were amazing to work with at Cissbury Barns and I’m very pleased that they loved the images from the day.
“Thank you for doing such an amazing job with our wedding photos! We have so many favourites that it was difficult to choose just one for the front of our thank you cards! It really felt like you went the extra mile for all aspects of the day…..we are so grateful for you commitment and creativity.” – Steph & Neil
