Set in the heart of the South Downs National Park, Upwaltham Barns allows you to escape to a world of romance. The Chichester venue is one of the prettiest barn wedding venues in the South and offers you the perfect setting for your special day. For your wedding at Upwaltham Barns, you and your guests can have the venue all to yourselves, allowing you to plan the day of your dreams.
The barns are full of charm and character, offering rustic elegance for your celebrations. The shabby-chic Jasmine Cottage has a delightful balcony where you can prepare ahead of the wedding and secretly watch as your guests begin to arrive. The East Barn is perfect place to say “I do”. The rustic ceremony barn has a wonderful atmosphere and longs to be filled with your happiness, love and laughter!
Following your romantic ceremony, your guests can flow out into the flower-filled courtyard to mingle and enjoy a few relaxed drinks. The spacious courtyard is very much the heart of the venue and can even play host to barbeques in the evening. The bar and lounge are also available for drinks before and after your delicious wedding breakfast.
The spacious South Barn is the ideal setting for your reception. The wooden beams and neutral colour scheme will complement any of your decorations perfectly. The barn has a warm and inviting atmosphere whatever the season.

The perfect relaxed day
We got married at Upwaltham last week and it truly was the perfect day. The owners and venue staff care so much about what they do and that really shines through. The day ran so seamlessly, and the team created the perfect relaxed day. You can make this venue so personal and I can't recommend it enough. Thank you to the whole Upwaltham team, we are still on a high from our special day!Sent on 08/04/2019

A wonderful venue which provides great food & stunning countryside surroundings. The majority of the staff were welcoming & attentive, particularly Nicola & Helen, who we are very appreciative of.Sent on 10/09/2018
However, not only did we as a couple have a few unprofessional encounters with senior members of the team with questionable conduct, another of our service providers were also on the receiving end of this unacceptable behaviour. Unfortunately, they seem to adopt the ‘Now we have their money ...’ approach, which tainted our experience slightly.
Despite raising our concerns about this unprofessional conduct via email directly to Upwaltham (for which we received an acknowledgement receipt almost 3 weeks ago) & in a follow up customer satisfaction survey, we have received no response at all, which once again highlights the unprofessionalism we faced at this venue. Had we not had to face these issues or, had Upwaltham emailed an apology to us in response to our complaint, a much higher rating would have been awarded, which is a real shame.
Although this element of the service was regrettable, we still had the most amazing time and are grateful that we had our wedding at such a beautiful venue; we are so thankful for those members of the team who worked tirelessly to ensure that it was the most special day for us, our family & friends.
