With their gorgeous rustic feel, stone floors and wooden interiors, barns are perfect for couples who want something relaxed yet romantic.

Barn venues are ideal if you’ve always dreamed of a countryside wedding, as by their nature they tend to be in beauty spots, with fabulous views over the countryside. As well as lots of peace and quiet, this means big areas of space for your guests to spread out, perfect for photo opportunities . As some barn venues are part of working farms, you may find there are even some animals present on your wedding day!

Barn Wedding Venues in Sussex - East FAQ

To hire a barn wedding venue, how much will I be likely to pay?

Some couples are surprised to find that barns can cost the same as manor house wedding venues. As rustic wedding venues are increasingly in demand, barns are very popular with UK brides, which means that you’ll have to be a little flexible with your wedding date to save some pennies. Consider marrying on a weekday, or in an off-peak season. Barn venues look just as beautiful in early Spring and late Autumn as they do in Summer, so you can afford to pick a season with less competition.

What themes work well at a barn wedding venue?

Classic English garden and vintage wedding themes are ideal for a barn, as the natural textures, stones and woods work perfectly together. However, you shouldn’t feel that you can only have a rustic wedding theme! You can easily throw a glamorous black tie wedding in a barn venue in Sussex - East - simply hang chandeliers and add plenty of luxurious floral arrangements and candles to your tables. Festival weddings and more casual, colourful themes are also brilliant in barn venues, as the colours really pop.

Won’t a barn venue be cold?

The short answer is, no! Whether they’re modern and renovated or traditional and rustic, most barn wedding venues will have heating systems installed to prevent your guests getting cold if the weather isn’t great. As well as central heating, you may also have the option of fire pits or patio heaters for the outdoor spaces. If you’re having a winter barn wedding, then you should be well taken care of, but you may want to provide blankets in case the evening gets chilly!

Can I have fireworks at my barn wedding?

As some barns in Sussex - East are part of farms, they often have restrictions on fireworks to avoid scaring animals. This also applies to sky lanterns and non-natural confetti. If you’re dreaming of fireworks at your barn wedding, we recommend filtering your barn venue search by Fireworks Permitted.

What if my guests want to stay over?

Unlike a hotel or manor house wedding venue, barn wedding venues are less likely to have accommodation on site. Some barns in Sussex - East may have nearby cottages or B&Bs as part of their grounds, but often you’ll have to travel a little further afield for guest accommodation. Consider putting on transport or arranging taxis for your guests, and making a weekend in the country out of it.
