Nestled in the South Downs National Park, Selden Barns Wedding Venue is set in an idyllic 50-acre,  rural location surrounded by fields, forests and hedgerows. The formal gardens to the west are bounded with flint and brick walls and the patio terrace looks east across the fields of grazing horses towards Patching Village, between Worthing and Arundel in West Sussex.

Family owned and run, we create a friendly, warm and exclusive atmosphere for your weddings and special events. With our license for civil ceremonies, you can get married in our beautiful old ceremony room before moving over to the wedding barn for an unforgettable experience.


On your wedding day, the entire venue will be yours, to relax with your friends and family. Step outside the barn and gaze over 50 acres of surrounding West Sussex countryside from the comfort of your patio terrace where you can relax while your special day unfolds.

Step inside, where the integrated raised dance floor and tall central pillars exude atmosphere, creating a sense of grandeur, all cloaked in permanent marquee ivory linings.

Don’t forget to bring your confetti… we love it!


On your wedding day, the entire venue will be yours… to relax with your friends and family… to consider as your own country retreat. Step outside the barn and gaze over 50 acres of surrounding West Sussex countryside from the comfort of your patio terrace where you can relax while your special day unfolds.


We could not recommend it enough!

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.

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

A massive thank you to you and your team!

Hi Rachel,
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.

Sarah and Daniel

Incredible incredible incredible!!!

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!! Xxxx

Could not have wished for a more perfect day!

We had our wedding reception at the barns on Saturday 17th December and we could not have wished for a more perfect day. On the run-up, Rachel listened to what we wanted for our day and advised us on what would work on the day she pulled it all together to make it all run so well for us and all our guests. Simply brilliant thank you all! Xx

We fell in love with Selden as soon as we saw it!

We fell in love with Selden as soon as we saw it, set in the most beautiful of surroundings, with lovely staff and everything you could hope for all in one place.
Rachel (the wedding organiser) was fantastic from start to finish and couldn’t do enough for us to make sure that our day went perfectly. Thank you!!
The staff and Val (the owner) were all lovely and made sure the day went without a hitch.
We would definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking for that little slice of perfection!

What you did to help us was the most amazing & beautiful thing!

What you did to help us was the most amazing & beautiful thing, I really honestly can’t thank you enough, you didn’t even know Daisy but you made the final part of her journey the best ever, if she was still with us she would have been in her element!! You all felt like family on that day.

The staff went above and beyond

If your thinking of booking this venue, just do it! Not only is the surroundings stunning but the staff went above and beyond to make our day run smoothly, and then there is Rachel, who was there to help with anything and everything and we can’t thank her enough, followed by a breakfast with other staying guests from our wedding the next morning which finished our whole experience off beautifully, your wedding is a special day anyway but booking this venue will make it even more fantastic! Thank you so much!
