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, with 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!
