About Southend Barns

Wophams Lane, Donnington, Chichester
West Sussex, PO20 7PS

Set on a stunning working farm in the beautiful West Sussex Countryside, Southend Barn has been lovingly restored with rustic charm and romantic touches. Surrounded by truly beautiful landscaped gardens and peaceful courtyards, it is a truly magical setting for your wedding celebration.

Our simple yet romantic Dairy Barn is fully licensed for all Civil Ceremonies and partnerships. With a delightful sweeping aisle, exposed wooden beams and benches made of sweet chestnut, the Wedding Barn is a truly idyllic setting for couples to exchange vows. We have also launched a new fully licensed outdoor ceremony area, The Secret Garden. 

You can dine and dance the night away in our magnificent 200-year-old Threshing Barn which emits warmth and character, with its authentic wooden beams and wrought iron chandeliers. The large windows provide you with stunning views of the surrounding gardens and stunning sunsets over The South Downs.

The Collecting Yard and Garden is a romantic and tranquil setting that features quiet hideaway, and provides a stunning backdrop for your wedding. As night falls, the gardens will come alive with the twinkling of the lanterns and the crackling of the roaring fire pit to make an enchanting evening setting.

You can prepare for one of the biggest days of your lives at Southend Barn in the calm and luxurious surroundings of our Bridal Suite, which is in its very own private courtyard within the grounds of Southend Barns. Situated just half a mile up the road is The Blacksmiths, our relaxed and stylish pub with three uniquely furnished bedrooms.

The most perfect venue we could have imagined!
Venue Service

By Gemma and Matt Brockhurst, on 30 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Dec 2016

We just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you to you and all your staff for all your efforts in making our wedding day so special on 3rd December 2016. The Barns looked absolutely beautiful, the most perfect venue we could have imagined for our winter/Christmas wedding. It was a truly magical day for us and we are so thankful to you and your staff for all your hard work - it was so smooth and flawless. We would like to thank all your staff but offer a special thanks to Alice, Laura and Rob for supporting us both before and throughout the day. All your staff looked after us, our families and friends so well. So many of our guests have commented on how amazing the venue was and how impressed they were with the service from your staff. The Christmas tree, confetti moment, the marshmallows over the fire pit and the tea and coffee station were such lovely touches and the waiting staff ensured no-one ever had an empty glass - many of our guests were amazed at how attentive they were :). Thank you again for helping to make our winter wedding so very special!

A BIG thank you for a truly wonderful day
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Randolph Stephens, on 30 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 05 Nov 2016

Thank you so much for hosting our big day and making it everything we always wanted. The venue is truly stunning with such a rustic, natural style that suited us perfectly. Every single person who came to our wedding has said how beautiful it all looked and how comfortable they felt there. Indeed, many of them have said that this was the best wedding they have ever attended, and all the Danish guests said it was totally ‘hygge’! Field & Fork are fantastic, the food was absolutely delicious (and left friends of ours, who have also got married recently, a little jealous!) and the wait staff were very professional and attentive. Rob deserves special mention, he was simply fantastic, taking care of so much for us and doing it all with ease. He must be a mind-reader because if there was anything I meant to ask him about, I’d soon discover that he had already taken care of it - especially keeping our Champagne glasses filled! We really couldn’t have asked for anything more from our day, every single member of the team worked so hard to make the day perfect, from answering all of our many, many questions to helping us pack up the car on the morning after. We know that absolutely made the right choice! A BIG thank you for a truly wonderful day,

Everything we had dreamed of

I just wanted to say how fantastic the venue and all the staff on our wedding day. It was absolutely perfect and everything we had dreamed of. Your members of staff went out of their way to make sure everything was as it should be. From table decorations through to the catering. We are so happy to be able to tell our friends and family we got married at your wonderful wedding venue.
