About Selden Barns

Old Selden Farm
146 Selden Lane, Patching
West Sussex, BN13 3UL

As you approach the wedding venue down a quiet country lane, you are greeted by a collection of Sussex flint and brick buildings as well as the main farmhouse. Entering through an iron gate beside the gatehouse, the driveway takes you past the Farmhouse and across the grounds to the front entrance of the reception barn.


As soon as you enter the barn, you are hit by the “Wow Factor”. The whole room is swathed in beautiful ivory pleated marquee drapes. The east wall has windows overlooking the rolling fields and woodland where horses and deer roam freely, while the integrated raised dance floor and tall central pillars exude atmosphere, creating a sense of grandeur and space

Large chandeliers hang overhead where the sparkling light shimmers against the ivory linings that drape the barn. With over 300 square meters of interior space, the barn comfortably holds the dining area, raised dance area and bar, so that your guests always feel together.

The dining area can be configured to comfortably accommodate 70 – 230 people and all tables and chairs in the barn are suppliedwithinthe venue price.

The striking raised Dance Floor with stainless steel balustrade features two mirror balls and subtle lighting. The Luxurious Drinks Bar area has a handsome vintage mahogany counter together with a huge wall unit salvaged from a Victorian chemist shop. Set your desired mood with the controllable wall and pillar up-lighters as the day turns to evening – elegant by day and magical at night.

The picturesque gardens also make the perfect setting for pre-reception drinks.


Just one minute’s walk from the wedding barn, you find the beautiful old Ceremony Room, located in a converted barn adjoining the main house. Seating up to 100 people, the Ceremony Room features timber rafters under a tiled roof and our Licence for Weddings and Civil Ceremonies lets you add an additional intimate memory to your wedding.

Once you have booked the date for your wedding at Selden Barn, couples must contact the registration service directly (that’s the legal requirement!) to make registrar arrangements, while we set up the room according to your specific wishes.

May wedding 2017
Venue Service

By Caroline & Rob Barnard, on 05 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 06 May 2017

We chose Selden Barn for the setting in the West Sussex countryside. We particularly loved that the raised dance floor and bar were within the function room so you do not lose guests during the evening to keep the atmosphere going. We cannot fault the service and hospitality of the staff, particularly Rachel who made our day so special. No request was too much and we felt comfortable to leave all the minor details to her on the day, knowing that everything would be under control. Our guests loved the venue and the accommodation for those who stayed was not only convenient but clean and welcoming. All in all if you are looking for a private wedding venue with breath taking views and great staff then look no further, Selden Barn will always hold a special place in our hearts.

We couldn't ask for much more, Selden Barns went above and beyond to host our day, making sure everything went to plan and we cannot thank them enough.

We got married here in July and it was the perfect day, everything went without a hitch. The landscape views surrounding are excellent and the venue had everything we needed. Very happy with our choice.
