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 wedding venue
Me and lawrence got married and had our reception at selden barns, from first visiting the venue to our wedding day Rachel the wedding planner couldn’t have been more helpful and made sure everything was perfect for our special day, the venue setting is off the south downs which makes it feel very exclusive. I have four small children and wanted a venue that there was room for them to play, so to have a bouncy castles at the back on the field was great. Everyone of the wedding party couldn’t stop telling us how amazing the venue was and how great all the staff was there. Selden barns also has 10 bedrooms that your have pay, which were very reasonable and include a breakfast together the next morning which was lovely to get together after the wedding. I highly recommend the venue for weddings as my wedding day was so perfect. Thank you again to all the staff at selden Barns.
