Laughton Barns is a romantic wedding venue in the heart of the Sussex South Downs. Boasting 84 acres of picturesque grounds and two idyllic lakes, it provides the most spectacular setting for a lovely country wedding.
Facilities and Capacity
Laughton Barns is home to various event spaces to accommodate every phase of your special day. The stunning Apple Barn is licensed to host civil ceremonies. With beautiful views and picturesque surroundings, you can exchange vows in a magical setting, with the option to host your ceremony inside a marquee should there be any inclement weather. After your ceremony, you and your guests can explore the acres of land for photographs and activities before heading to the Crown Barn terrace for the drinks reception. Meanwhile, you can take the opportunity to visit the lakes with your photographer and take in the countryside as a newly married couple. The Crown Barn is the ideal space for your celebration, accommodating 180 guests for a wedding breakfast. The barn features exposed oak beams and a gothic-inspired chandelier. It is rustic yet modern and provides the ideal blank canvas for decorating. Additionally, one side of the barn can be opened up to let the outside in. Their paved drinks reception area is beautifully sheltered by stunning willow trees, creating a relaxed place to enjoy refreshments and your guests’ company, with benches, outdoor seating, and fire pits.
To make your memorable day truly special, they offer all couples exclusive use of the venue for the weekend and an event coordinator to help you plan the best day of your lives. Included in the venue hire is their resident DJ, who will provide the perfect playlist to get your guests on the dance floor. You will be able to design your wedding breakfast with the assistance of their critically acclaimed Executive Chef. From canapes and four-course menus to more informal style feasting menus, they can do it all. They also offer excellent late-night food options, including a pizza or street food van. However you envision your celebration, their team will work tirelessly to make your dreams a reality.

Venue of Dreams
The food is absolutely outstanding and our guests commented so much on how the food was so amazing and the great portion sizes! Katy & Sean deserve a special mention too for being great when we turned up to set the venue up on the Friday, they went above a beyond to make sure it was how we wanted it to be, also on the day of the wedding they still went above and beyond to make sure we was both looked after very well, checking in on us regularly and making sure everything run smoothly!
So all I want to say is one big massive thank you to Sara, Liv, the catering team, Sean, Katy & everyone else at circa! Our day wouldn’t have been the way it was without these guys
The Perfect Wedding
Nothing was too much trouble. We were given completely free range when it came to decorating the barn. The food was absolutely out of this world - delicious!
The Circa team managed to make all our dreams come true in a calm, friendly and professional way. Thank you.
The best day of our lives!
We had the most perfect day and that is down to Liv and her team. The service was impeccable and the food was to die for, we had all of our wedding guests saying it was the best food they had ever had.
We were lucky enough to get married outside and the whole ceremony was faultless thanks to the great organisation by the team.
We had our Reception Drinks outside on the terrace where all of the staff were so friendly and attentive, no one was ever without a drink or canape in their hand!
Then onto the main event, our Wedding Breakfast inside the beautiful barn - It really did look like something out of a magazine and I could not have been happier. We then went on to dance the night away, the DJ was incredible and really got the party going - We did not have an empty dance floor at any point. Completely packed the whole night!
I am a Wedding Coordinator myself so had extremely high expectations for our wedding day and they were exceeded. All of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to which for me was such a compliment and again that is down to Laughton Barns.
I wish we could re-do it over and over again.
Thank you so much!!!
The best team, venue and day ever!

Thanks for getting in touch. Pleased you got the card! We wanted you all to know how great the day was, and how well your team did too.
Nothing seemed too much for them, and they made it all look effortless, which I think is a sign of a great team
