Wedding in a Barn!
So in order to be able to provide our guests with knowledge and expertise, I have recently been visiting some of the venues, something I had been meaning to do for some time!
Another day another venue! This time Bartholomew Barn - a stunning rustic barn wedding venue situated a short distance from the attractive villages of Wisborough Green and Kirdford - easily accessible to Chequers Hotel. A captivating idyllic setting, with Frances the wedding venue owner there to cater for your every need!
Another pretty venue. A collection of traditional Sussex flint long barns set around a stunningly pretty courtyard, surrounded by the Goodwood Estate and South Downs. Again privately owned - Tim and Nicola on hand to assist
Again a gorgeous wedding venue near Chequers Hotel Pulborough! The Great Barn built in the Tudor Period is in the pretty village of Bury on the South Downs and in 40 acres of beautiful medieval gardens with views of the River Arun!
Next stop was GRITTENHAM BARN IN TILLINGTON A magical venue - rustic surroundings with stunning views of the South Downs and the freedom to wander through the orchard, languish by the lake or ponder the flower gardens. The barn has a warm and relaxing feel and beautiful lighting - a great place for a chilled out garden party type wedding!
