EXCLUSIVE USE WEDDING VENUE

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.

Testimonials

Amazing wedding venue

Selden Barns is an amazing venue, the grounds are so beautiful and it’s fantastic having the ceremony and reception all in one place. Selden is amazing regardless of the season – we got married in October and had some rain and it was still the perfect venue as there is plenty of indoor and outdoor space that is all just as lovely. We had the most incredible day, we wouldn’t have changed a thing and couldn’t have wished for it to be more perfect! All our guests had an amazing time. Having a dedicated wedding event manager was so useful and everything went so smoothly thanks to Steph and the team who put both of us at ease at every step of the way. We both felt like we could completely enjoy the day without worrying about what was happening and where we needed to be! We would recommend Selden to anyone looking for a wedding venue!

Amazing venue

My husband & I eloped to Gretna Green but wanted to have a wedding reception party after to celebrate with our family & friends. Nicki and her team were absolutely brilliant, from when I initially met with her to plan, to the actual night of the party. There were so many things I hadn’t thought of, thanks to Nicki nothing was forgotten about. They couldn’t have been more helpful and accommodating. Ben was also great, he got a lot of things set up for us prior to the party and on the night made sure everything ran smoothly.if we hadn’t decided on Gretna Green then we would have had our entire wedding at Selden.

could not recommend Selden Barns enough

We got married July 2023 and we could not recommend Selden Barns enough. Our day was everything we’d dreamed of and more. Every idea we had got brought to life by the amazing wedding planners – a big shout out to Steph who was an incredible help from start to finish. The venue is so dreamy and the grounds just beautiful. If I could do it all again I’d choose Selden Barns again in a heartbeat. 100% recommend

All the team at Selden barns, you’re all amazing!

Just wanted to start by apologising for my delayed email, the last few days have been crazy busy and as I lay on the sun bed in Mexico I now have the time to email everyone!

On behalf of myself and Liam we would like to say a BIG thank you for making our day truly perfect and making it all run smoothly! We both had the best day from start to finish, the venue looked beautiful inside and out and I wouldn’t have changed a thing. We had so many comments about how beautiful the venue was and that a lot of people didn’t know it was there. So I’ve told everyone to spread the word!

A few thank You’s/shoutouts I’d like to say…

Big thank you to Steph for all the phone calls and emails back and forth you’ll be glad not to hear from me again ha ha! You’ve been so helpful from start to finish and made my wedding journey smooth sailing!

Big thank you to Nicki, you made me feel so at ease from the moment I met you. So kind and welcoming, thank you for the hugs throughout the night!

And last but not least a huge thank you to Ben for completing running our day! Again, you made me feel so at ease from the get go and made our day go just as we imagined, the whole day was perfect!! Thank you for your kindness, advice and help throughout our big day and the day before.

 

I’ll be shouting about Selden barns from the roof tops! A general thank you to all the team at Selden barns, you’re all amazing. I will do at some point this week.

Many thanks

Mille

Selden pulled out all the stops on the day

Our perfect wedding day (May 2023)

Having viewed several potential Sussex venues, we very quickly settled on Selden Barns as the ideal place for our wedding. We were particularly drawn to it by the vast outside space, as well as the separate ceremony and reception rooms which gave the day a really nice flow. We also wanted somewhere that family and friends could stay overnight – so we took advantage of the onsite rooms for the night of the wedding.We really did have the best day of our lives, it went exactly as had pictured it in our minds and the team at Selden pulled out all the stops on the day (particularly Steph in our case) to make sure this was the case.We would highly recommend Selden Barns.

Christmas Party

We booked Selden Barns quite late in the year for our Staff Christmas party after searching for a venue big enough to accommodate us all.

Selden recommended caterers and a DJ for us, and everything was just fabulous.  The venue was perfect for us, the food was delicious, and the DJ ensured the dance floor was full all evening. The staff at Selden looked after us really well and the feedback from all our staff regarding the party has been great.  A wonderful night was had by all.  I would certainly recommend Selden for a wedding or party venue.

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

Holly & Michael - 26th May 2019

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

We honestly had most fantastic day!

Hi Rachel

Thanks again X

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

Alice & Christie - 1st December 2018

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

Nicky H - 19th December 2016

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!

Bethany R - 1st July 2017

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.

Stephanie D - 18th September 2017

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!
