Wedding Venue Offers Heart

Venue Details

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.
Selden Barns, at Old Selden Farm, is set within over 50 acres of the South Downs National Park; the idyllic rural retreat for your wedding day.

This family-run venue is exclusively yours to enjoy, and features beautiful, characterful barns, with Old Selden Farmhouse at the venues heart, and beautifully kept lawns and terrace overlooking open farmland and forests.

Selden Barns also benefits from nine guest bedrooms, accommodating up to 22 wedding guests, including the newlyweds, in ‘The Gatehouse’ Newlywed Suite. Breakfast is cooked to order and served in the Farmhouse kitchen.

Wedding ceremonies are licensed for up to 100 guests in our stunning Ceremony Barn adjoining the Farmhouse with original oak beams, fireplace and exposed brickwork. To add a little extra sparkle, fairy lights entwine the beams overhead whilst you make your wedding vows. 

After your ceremony, enjoy pre-reception drinks and canapes on one of our lawns within the walled gardens, or terraces adjoining the Grand Barn; the location for your wedding breakfast and evening reception.

With capacity to seat up to 230 guests for your wedding breakfast and up to 250 for your evening reception, this versatile, flexible wedding space is second to none. With beautiful ivory pleated drapes, swags and tails, vintage chandeliers and a fairy light canopy, you and your guests will enjoy grandeur during your wedding day.

For your evening wedding reception, party the night away on our raised, chequered dancefloor with provision for a DJ or band and the bar located just a ‘boogie’ away! And for those warm, summer nights, step off the dancefloor and through the doors on to the splendid terrace and lawns to enjoy your favourite drink and look up at the stars.

Your venue hire package includes tables, chairs, fully stocked bar and staff, wedding décor items such as table centre pieces, gift and cake tables, post box for cards, easel for your table plan, as well as ample parking. Also included in your hire will be a dedicated Wedding Coordinator to help you plan and oversee your special day, ensuring your wedding day runs perfectly.
