This family-run venue is exclusively yours to enjoy, and features beautiful, characterful barns, with Old Selden Farmhouse at the venues heart, and beautifully kept lawns and terrace overlooking open farmland and forests.

Selden Barns also benefits from nine guest bedrooms, accommodating up to 22 wedding guests, including the newlyweds, in ‘The Gatehouse’ Newlywed Suite. Breakfast is cooked to order and served in the Farmhouse kitchen.

Wedding ceremonies are licensed for up to 100 guests in our stunning Ceremony Barn adjoining the Farmhouse with original oak beams, fireplace and exposed brickwork. To add a little extra sparkle, fairy lights entwine the beams overhead whilst you make your wedding vows. 

After your ceremony, enjoy pre-reception drinks and canapes on one of our lawns within the walled gardens, or terraces adjoining the Grand Barn; the location for your wedding breakfast and evening reception.

Perfect wedding
Venue Service

By Sarah & Greg, on 27 Jun 2020Date of Wedding - 17 Aug 2019

As soon as we saw Selden Barns we both knew it was where we wanted to get married. The barn and surrounding areas are beautiful and location was ideal. The wedding coordinators were amazing. Nothing was an issue and they were happy to answer the many questions we had! The on-site accommodation was perfect for all our close family. The setting is very romantic and you wouldn’t find a better venue.

The location is simply stunning!

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about my experience of Selden Barns, having got married there last month. Rachel, Chloe and all the other staff were so helpful and knowledgeable in the planning stages and they helped us to have the most perfect day. The location is simply stunning, with picture opportunities everywhere you look. And the bridal suite was just amazing!

The most perfect wedding at Selden Barns!

We had the most perfect wedding at Selden Barns! Rachel is just fabulous and takes away all the stress....nothing is too much trouble. On the day the communication between the staff was excellent, managing people and timings perfectly. We wanted a day of fun and laughter and that's exactly what we got. The new bridal suite is perfect and truly a special room. Our guests also loved their rooms and breakfast the next day was a fun and filling experience! We didn't look at any other venues as we knew from the moment we looked around that Selden Barns was the place for us! Thanks so much for everything x

We honestly had most fantastic day!

Hi Rachel/Selden, We have just started to get back to normal after our mini moon so we wanted to drop you a quick email saying a massive thank you to you and your team for making our day a huge success and the day of our dreams. I genuinely could not have asked for more on the day or in the lead up to the wedding. Everyone of your team over at Selden was exceptional I can’t really put into words how much the effort and thought is appreciated! Thank you again we had the perfect day.

We could not recommend it enough!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Riley, on 10 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 05 May 2019

My wife and I got married at Selden Barns just over a week ago now and we could not recommend it enough. For nearly two years we had the date booked and throughout that time Rachel and her team were fantastic. Rachel is knowledgeable, attentive and helpful and having her help plan the day took pretty much all of the stress out of it. On the day itself everything could not have run smoother and that is all down to how they looked after us and our guests. On top of that excellent bedrooms for anybody staying the night we could not have had a better venue. Thank you Rachel and your team for everything, we will never forget it.

Thank you so much to you and your team

Sivan and I just wanted to write to so thank you so much to you and your team for Sunday. Everything went even better than we could imagined and it is a day that we will never forget. You made it so easy from the moment that we came to view the venue for the first time so we cannot sing your praises enough.

By Kay Miller Porter, on 30 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 17 Jan 2019

Wow! What can I say about this magical place, myself and my wife got married here and it was an absolute dream. Our wedding planner was absolutely brilliant right down to the last detail to ensure everything was perfect! The venue looked stunning and we couldn’t have asked for anymore. Thank you to all of the staff at Selden Barns for making our wedding so so perfect!

Incredible incredible incredible!!!
Venue Service

By Alice Matthews, on 17 May 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Dec 2018

Incredible incredible incredible!!! We recently got married at Selden Barns on Saturday 1st December and what an amazing day!! We had SO many compliments on how amazing the venue looked and how well organised it was. I’m a major organised freak and both Rachel and Jo made me feel so at ease (this is unusual!!) nothing was too much trouble and I felt like I could ask anything and email a million times without feeling like I was annoying them. Selden was the first venue we saw when choosing (I think we looked at around 6 barns) and immediately I knew it was the one, we really loved that there was a completely separate ceremony room which most barns don’t have, as well as all the really reasonably priced accommodation which is incredibly handy when all the grooms family is from up North! All the staff including the gardeners and Selden’s chef were so unbelievably friendly and made such an impression on us all, we can’t thank you all enough for making us feel like king and queen on our special day, really could not recommend you guys enough!!

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.
