Top Wedding Tips

Always keep the budget in mind, don't just think about the venue cost, keep in mind the catering, photographer, decorations, and entertainment.

When looking for a venue keep space in mind, a venue that is too spread out will segregate guests. Having the bar, dance floor, and food tables in the same area will keep everyone together.

Who are your guests? Children and adults alike will need entertainment throughout the day, its good to plan out the day to keep your guests happy. (Happy kids means happy parents)

Amazing!
Selden Barns was simply the most perfect venue for our Wedding in Oct 2018. An absolutely stunning location with fantastic accommodation. Rachel is one amazing lady, nothing was too much. Our day really ran like a dream all because of Rachel and the team. We reminisce daily about the utter perfection of everything. Wouldn’t change a thing about the venue or our special day.

Perfect wedding!
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 round that Selden Barns was the place for us! Thanks so much for everything x

Beautiful venue
We had the most amazing and special wedding day at Selden Barns at the end of March. The whole venue from ceremony room, reception barn and the B&B rooms were lovely!! Everyone commented on how beautiful the place looked. Even the massive breakfast served the morning after with all our family and friends that stayed there with us was great. A big thank you to Rachel and the team up there for making our day run perfectly for us and leaving us with such special memories of the whole day!!

Thank you so much.
My experience with Selden Barn was perfect. From the moment I visited I knew this was my venue. They were so helpful with everything and nothing was too much trouble for them. The accommodation there was great and the service I received was excellent. They were extremely organised on the day which meant I could relax and not worry. All the staff here are friendly and they added special touches to the day.
Could not recommend enough.

Thank you so much

Couldn't have been happier!
We got married at Selden Barns in July and couldn't have been happier. It was the first venue that we looked at and we are so glad we decided to use them. Rachel, the organiser, was great and ready to help us whenever we needed it. The day itself ran very smoothly - Val, the owner, runs a tight ship and the use of walkie talkies to make sure everyone and everything is in the right place at the right time is a great idea. We definitely recommend Selden Barns for a wedding venue.

I really can't recommend Selden Barn highly enough
We had our wedding reception here on the 25th June. The moment I saw Selden Barn, I knew it was my venue. Its setting is unbeatable in the rolling hills of the south downs with beautiful grounds which have enabled our wedding pictures to look stunning. I love the raised dance floor and the whole feel of the place is amazing. A huge thank you to Rachel, Val and the entire team for making us feel so welcome and running around to give us the most perfect fairy tale day. The accommodation is brilliant also with a full English breakfast the morning before and continental the day after the wedding. The service from all the staff from the very start of wedding planning to the day itself was A* and I really can't recommend Selden Barn highly enough.
