Located in the heart of the Sussex South Downs, Laughton Barns is the ultimate romantic wedding venue. Boasting 84 acres of picturesque landscape and two idyllic lakes, the venue is the most spectacular setting for a lovely country wedding.
To make your memorable day truly special, we offer all our happy couples exclusive use of the venue for the weekend and a wedding coordinator to help you plan the best day of your lives.
The stunning Apple Barn is licensed for your civil ceremony. With beautiful views, your outdoor ceremony is in a truly magical setting, with the option to hold your ceremony inside our marquee should the weather dictate otherwise. Following your ceremony, we encourage you and your guests to enjoy the acres of land for photographs and activities, retiring to the Crown Barn terrace for your drinks reception. Meanwhile, you can take the opportunity to visit our lakes for your stunning wedding photos and take in the beautiful Sussex countryside as a newly married couple!
The Crown Barn is ideal for your wedding celebrations, accommodating 180 guests for a wedding breakfast, a daytime minimum number of 80 adult guests. The barn was hand-built using local oak, brick and stone and has been fantastically finished with exposed beams and a gothic-inspired chandelier. The barn’s features are modern yet rustic and provide the ideal canvas for your reception. Additionally, an entire side of the barn can be opened up to let the outside in; you can have the feel of an outdoor event without the commitment to unpredictable weather. Our paved drinks reception area is beautifully sheltered by stunning willow trees, creating a relaxed place in which to enjoy a few refreshments and your guests’ company, with benches, outdoor seating and even Fire Pits.
Included in the venue hire here is our Resident DJ (Matt Maurice) who will provide the perfect playlist for you and your guests to dance the night away!
You will be able to design your own wedding breakfast with the assistance of critically acclaimed Executive Chef, Justin Gillam. From Canape and Four Course Wedding Breakfast menus, to more informal style feasting menus, Circa are happy to work on your ideas and create something truly memorable for the food side of the day.

We had the most amazing wedding day! From the very beginning Marc and team went above and beyond in helping us. From about 8 viewings of the barn with various family members and plans on how to use the space to menu ideas and running times!Sent on 07/11/2013
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!
How do I even begin to describe Laughton Barns. The most beautiful venue, in the most beautiful location with the most amazing team!Sent on 26/10/2017
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!!!
