Southend Barns | West Sussex
Set on a working farm in the heart of the Sussex countryside, you’ll find authentic wooden beams and wrought iron chandeliers hanging inside Southend Barns’ magnificent 200-year old Threshing Barn, a sweeping 22m aisle lined with handmade sweet chestnut benches in the neighbouring Dairy Barn, beautifully restored farm buildings, immaculately landscaped gardens, and equipment that operates using environmentally sustainable technology. It’s available for exclusive use and is the ideal spot for a country wedding with all the trimmings.
Contemporary touches abound here. Marry in the luxury of the Dairy Barn before heading over to the Threshing Barn for a sit down meal for up to 140 guests, followed by dancing on the unique polished concrete dancefloor.
Family owned restaurant, Field & Fork, are the resident caterers. Run by Sam and Janet Mahoney, who previously worked for the Roux Brothers, Field & Fork’s Michelin-trained chefs will prepare a menu of delicious handmade food, using excellent, locally sourced ingredients.
Mingle with guests in the picturesque courtyard, enjoy drinks and canapes on the lawn, and snap happy to achieve that perfect rustic wedding photo on the Cornish slate patio lined with old milk churns. As evening falls, twinkling up-lights will show off the gardens and gorgeous flint and log walls of the wedding barns while you and your guests can relax in the Collecting Yard, sinking into its sumptuous sofas and toasting your day by the fire pit. It will be the perfect end to a perfect day.
