About Laughton Barns

Laughton, Laughton Village
Brighton, Lewes, Ringmer, Laughton
East Sussex, BN8 6BN

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.

The best day of our lives!
Venue Service

By Holly & Jason Satchell, on 26 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 23 Sep 2017

How do I even begin to describe Laughton Barns. The most beautiful venue, in the most beautiful location with the most amazing team! 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!

We chose Laughton Barns as our wedding venue. The venue was beautiful and the Circa Events team are fantastic, the food, the organisation, the funky different themes - our wedding guests said it was truly the best wedding they have been too and particularly commented on the food and relaxed environment. We are so please we had the Circa Events Team - they rock and you won't be disappointed! Have the best day ever! x

The best day of our life.....

By Amy and Joe, on 09 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 05 Aug 2017

Our wedding was held in August 2017 and we could not have picked a better venue to have our wedding at or a better team to work with than the Circa team. The venue was perfect for our laid back family gathering style wedding with BBQ food, pizza van, gelato bike and free flowing drinks. One of my favourite moments was looking over the field and seeing our friends and family on both sides playing football and Frisbee. The Circa team were beyond helpful every step of the way and we could not recommend them highly enough!!

Couldn't have been more perfect!!

We want to say a massive thank you to the team at circa for helping us organise and provide the perfect wedding!! From day one to the big day circa bent over backwards to help provide us with everything we wanted. The day ran smoothly and all our guests commented on how amazing the food was, "the best wedding food they have ever had". The venue looked amazing and suited us perfectly allowing little ones to run and play and adults to chill or party! THANK YOU!!

The perfect wedding venue

By Robert Freeman, on 03 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 13 May 2017

My wife and I got married at Laughton Barns in May this year. The venue was the most bueatiful setting and the barn looked particularly stunning when expertly decorated by my better half. Circa were fantastic throughout but particularly on the day. Olivia and the team did a wonderful job from start to finish. The waiters/waitresses and bar staff were all professional and friendly. I couldn't finish the review without commenting on the food which was amazing! I would definitely recommend the lebenese grill on the patio for an evening feast! Well done Circa and thanks for a magical day!!

We wanted to say a huge massive thank you to you guys especially Marc and Ashley who ensured we had the most specially amazing wedding at Laughton Barns last Sunday. Everything from the setting of being able to get married outside, to photos by the lakes and the gorgeous barn where our guests mingled and had food was amazing. The food was outstanding from the delicious canapés to the huge BBQ - everything tasted fab and everyone of our friends and family complimented how great the food was. How you managed to get the steak so perfect despite the boys literally last minute change of speech timings i don't know! Thank you for organising and making our day so special...only problem is we want to do it all again now!!
