Your day

Take the time to finalise your day just the way you want them, with exclusive access 2 days to your wedding venue on our farm beforehand to give you the time to add those finishes touches to your wedding day.

Your ceremony, your way – indoors or out.  With just a handful of close family and friends or many, many more.  The Sussex Barn is an ideal DIY wedding venue in Sussex as it has three separate areas to hold your ceremony, whether it be indoors in The Sussex Barn or outside in front of the flint wall with the countryside as your backdrop or perhaps in our cart shed for that intimate, beautiful space.   All can be styled in your own way to make the perfect backdrop to say your ‘I Do’s!’

All three spaces are fully licensed and approved by East Sussex Registrars but we are very happy to host celebrant lead wedding ceremonies too.
