We got married at Cissbury Barns on the 31st May 2019 and it was the most magical day. The sun was shining, we had a band on the lawns and all of the staff were amazing. Our guests could not stop talking about how stunning the Barns looked. Thank you so much Helen & Michelle.xx

Everything was perfect
Venue Service

By Holli and Tom O Brian, on 12 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 18 May 2019

Oh my goodness - where to start?!? Everything was perfect on Saturday, everything. We truly had the best day possible and you guys made it happen. Honestly we have been blown away with the service, the smiles and no problem attitudes from anyone we have met during our year of planning with Cissbury. Then, on the day Helen and Kate you just made it a dream as well as arranging the sunshine too. Cissbury is just the most gorgeous place and will forever hold a special place in our hearts. We will be sure to share some photos with you when received from Nic. Thank you once again and hopefully we can find an excuse to come back one day!!! Lots of love Holli and Tom xxxx

We had our reception at Cissbury Barns in April and could not recommend it more! Throughout the whole lead up to the wedding, Helen and Michelle were just so amazing - so helpful, accommodating and just looked after us all the way through. On the day we could stand back and relax knowing that they had everything under control. The barns are absolutely beautiful and the surrounding views just mesmerising. All of our guests fell in love with Cissbury Barns - as did we! We had the perfect day and are forever grateful that we chose Cissbury for our wedding!

There's no place that come close to Cissbury for a rustic, country wedding venue with ethereal views. The setting is simply stunning, with a gorgeous drive up to the secluded barns and a team that takes all the stress out of wedding planning. We hosted our reception there in October of 2018 and have made memories that will carry us through a lifetime. Cissbury stayed in our minds from the moment we saw it and met Helen; it's so practially set up for a wedding with more space than any barn set up we saw. The gorgeous sheep-pen-turned-bar is oozing with character and makes such a fab snug for guests, and the flint walls make such an epic backdrop for photos! We cannot thank the team enough - everything went without a single hitch and we had a day beyond our wildest dreams. Cissbury's suppliers work seamlessley together to take care of everything. You are absolute legends, Michelle & Helen! If you've booked, you're in the safest of hands. If you havent; go visit. It's next level beautiful x

The Only Place to Get Married
Venue Service

By Chelcie and Matthew Chamberlain, on 12 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 04 Oct 2018

The only place to get married! All of our guests were so complimentary to the setting. It really is beautiful! Everyone was so welcoming, even showing one of our flower girls your little kitten whilst we met with the registrar! Michelle and Helen ran the day so smoothly and all staff were great! We can highly recommend and we will be back for future parties

Cannot recommend highly enough
Venue Service

By Lucy and Gorton Gorton, on 12 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 29 Sep 2018

We had our wedding at Cissbury on the 29th September and it was the most perfect day. The location is amazing and the barns themselves were beautiful and the whole bar/barn/ courtyard set-up worked really well for the day and into the evening. The additional little finishing touches such as the lights in the gardens and the fire pits really stood out as well and finished it all of perfectly. Helen and Michele were amazing both in the run-up and during the wedding weekend. They really went out of their way and did an amazing job behind the scenes to make sure that everything went exactly to plan; our day was even better than we hoped. We cant recommend Cissbury highly enough, its just a shame that we cant do it all again!

Just incredible
Venue Service

By Stacey and Billy Hipperson, on 12 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Sep 2018

My husband and I where lucky enough to get married here in September. The pictures speak for themselves but this venue is just incredible! The barns are beautiful inside and out, there is plenty of space for all your wedding dreams to come to life! It is completely private and you can create your own little world up there for you and your guests. There is photo opportunity’s galore, plenty of options for you rain or sunshine, the music plays inside and out which I loved and there is ample free parking for everybody. Helen and Michelle will help you every step of the way and will ensure that your day is perfect. They are great fun and make the whole process enjoyable. The owner was also so lovely and made us feel so welcome (even when I was running late!) he even came up on the day to ensure everything was running smoothly. Cissbury is perfect ?? Lots of love the Hippersons

A Special Place in Our Hearts
Venue Service

By Kayleigh and Tony Smith, on 12 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 23 Sep 2017

We got married at Cissbury last September and from initial enquiry to the day after our wedding we were looked after by Helen and her team. We saw the barns develop through the works undertaken to them to make it the beautiful venue that it is today! All our guests said we had found a hidden gem and it really did feel like it. Helen was so professional and was there every step of the way during our wedding planning. Cissbury will always hold a special place in our heart. Thank you to everyone at Cissbury!

Simply gorgeous
Venue Service

By Alice and Luke Jennings, on 12 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 03 Jun 2017

We got married at Cissbury in June 2017 and I cannot express how perfect it was, we viewed the venue before it was even finished and just knew that it was 'the one'. It's beautiful, the house the barns, the views, the family. From start to finish we felt in expertly good hands, planning to create our vision. It has the perfect blend of homely and relaxed, stylish and romantic that we were were hoping for. Helen was a true gem to work with, she was patient with all of our ideas and nothing was ever too much trouble, she helped coordinate our dream wedding, for which I will be forever thankful! If you're in the process of looking for a venue in West Sussex, just visit Cissbury, I promise you that you will not be disappointed, It's simply gorgeous.
