With nearly 100 superb wedding venues in West Sussex it's easy to be overwhelmed when it comes to choosing your venue. However, if you’ve already made the decision to have a ‘barn’ wedding then this reduces your options to a more manageable 15-20. Now that’s more like it!
From a photographer’s point of view photographing a barn wedding is always exciting because the barns tend to have characterful wooden structures that are often flooded with contrasting shards of light. It makes for a lovely backdrop to your wedding photos.
On the whole the barn venues have spacious green outside areas and quite often a pond or lake, another pleasing aspect for photographs. As night draws in, outside lighting can be found which transforms the scene giving it a warm, magical, twinkling vibe!
Some of the local barn wedding venues are:
Long Furlong Barn, Patching
Selden Barns, Patching
Fitzleroi Barn, Pulborough
Cissbury Barns, Findon
Brookfield Barn, Lower Beeding
Upwaltham Barns, Boxgrove
Prices can range from £400 to over £4000 with capacities between 30 and 250 so there is something for everyone, and every pocket.
Oh, and on the theme of barn weddings, we've just come across a great website “The Guide to Sustainable, Zero-Waste, Ethical Weddings” that you might find interesting reading.
If you’ve already booked your barn venue and are now looking for a wedding photographer please feel free to check out our offerings here. We’d be delighted to hear from you!
