Bracklesham Barn is a perfect place to hold your wedding ceremony and/or reception. Not far from Chichester, this wedding venue is a community building styled on the theme of a Sussex Barn and set within Bracklesham Park. Just a short walk away is the beautiful crescent coastline of Bracklesham Bay to provide you with a different background for your wedding photographs!

Wedding Ceremonies at Bracklesham Barn

Bracklesham Barn is licensed to hold ceremonies. If you are looking to have your wedding in the heart of your local community, in a beautifully designed hall with a beamed ceiling, staging area for the ceremony and plenty of room for guests, then take a look at Bracklesham Barn as a wedding ceremony venue.

The Full Wedding Reception Experience

Bracklesham Barn has enough space for weddings for 120 people (including staff)  – which is about 100-110 guests. We have a variety of accessories which can be hired to make your wedding really special. We have two large flower displays on stands, chair covers and sashes, round tables and a red carpet which can be included into your package on request.

A Perfect Space for your Wedding Reception

The stylish main hall of Bracklesham Barn, with its high ceiling and wooden beams, is reminiscent of a Sussex Barn and its neutral decor will tone in with whatever colour scheme you have chosen for your wedding reception. On a warm day, the doors of the main hall can be opened up to allow your wedding guests to take some fresh air on the patio area outside. In the evening, the dark blue curtains can be drawn to create a cosy atmosphere inside the hall.

An equipped kitchen for your caterers

We require weddings to be catered at Bracklesham Barn and also for you to hire in your own bar. Provision of your own champagne is acceptable, but all other alcohol should be provided by a private licensed bar company. Your caterers will have full use of our modern, commercial kitchen. We also have crockery, cultery and glassware available to hire although most caterers and bars provide their own. A hatchway through from the kitchen into the main hall will ensure that food reaches the guests whilst it is still hot and with the minimum disruption.

Sound System

Every good wedding reception has music, so you will need our state-of-the-art sound system which can play music from an iPod/ MP3 player or CD and also has provision for a microphone so that all of your guests can hear the speeches!
