Information about the venue
If you’re looking for a stunning civil ceremony wedding venue in Hampshire and Sussex, then Tithe Barn is the perfect place to exchange vows and entertain your friends and family on your Special Day. Nestled in three hundred acres of amazing farmland at Old Ditcham Farm near Petersfield, the barn is easily accessible from both the A3 and A272. There are many stunning backdrops for your photographs, from the South Downs to the pleasant duck pond, a picturesque pergola and a pretty path that winds its way through the surrounding countryside. There’s even a meadow too – a wonderful setting for drinks and a lovely place for children to play games in the summer. The impressive Tithe Barn is now Grade II* listed, and has been tastefully and sympathetically renovated, maintaining much of its original character, and yet offering modern conveniences including full insulation and under-floor heating – ideal for when the weather turns chilly.
The romantic Barn, with its soaring vaulted ceiling, is big enough to welcome 250 guests seated, with plenty of room to dance, although 80 to 120 guests is more usual. The high church-like stone arches lend themselves to a traditional atmosphere for the ceremony, and seating can be arranged to give a central walkway that resembles an aisle. For a smaller wedding party, the barn can be screened off into a number of distinct areas for a more intimate feel. A dancing area can be set up so you don’t have to move away the tables. You may like to consider a medieval theme for your celebrations, and this can present endless photographic opportunities. The large versatile space offers a wide variety of options – the choice is yours. There’s even a separate quiet room for the bride to change, with a tall mirror and comfortable sofa.
As the owners of say: “It is an all-in-one wedding and reception venue combining stately grandeur, for an unforgettable civil ceremony or civil partnership ceremony, with a beautiful indoor and outdoor space for your reception.” We certainly cannot argue with this admirable sentiment. If the Tithe Barn near Petersfield is your venue of choice, I look forward very much to photographing your wedding and providing you with a set of beautiful pictures that will evoke many happy memories for years to come.

“Murray photographed our wedding at the Tithe Barn in April and he did an absolutely amazing job. The photos are fantastic, he captured the whole day perfectly. We now have so many beautiful photos to remember our wedding day thanks to Murray. He was friendly and professional throughout and his unobtrusive style of photography exactly captured all the special moments throughout the day. Thanks Murray!” Ali & Alistair
“USB has arrived safe and sound and I’m surprised we haven’t worn it out already, we’ve looked through them so many times! We, and our families, absolutely love our photos; my mum has burst into tears every time we’ve looked at them with her! It was an absolute pleasure to have you as our photographer at our wedding, you did a superb job capturing the day. They are all absolutely brilliant, but the smoke one really is the most incredible picture. I’m glad I let you talk me into going out in the rain in my dress, it was worth it! We honestly couldn’t be more pleased to have such amazing memories of the day forever.Thank you so much for your hard work!” – Jemma & Patrick
