Our dream wedding day!
Amazing! Cissbury hosted our wedding on the 23rd October 2023. They were great from day one, showing us around the venue, listening to all our requests and responding promptly when needed. Michelle and the team did a fantastic job on the day and made sure it was exactly what we always dreamed of. 100% recommend if you are planning your big day!

An absolute dream
The team at Cissbury Barns were simply wonderful! Great communication during the organisation and Helen offered excellent insight from her experience to help us put everything together. On the night itself all the staff were friendly, helpful and hardworking and Helen made everything run smoothly and was working hard herself all evening. Altogether a very enjoyable experience and the barns are simply stunning meaning little to no decoration needed. Thanks Cissbury Barns!

We cannot get over how amazing the day was
My wife and I got married at Cissbury Barns in August and we still cannot get over how amazing the venue/day was. Michelle and her team were absolutely brilliant and took care of everything for us. There are lots of venues around but if you’re looking for a barn wedding in the countryside then Cissbury Barns is your answer! Thank you so much

I was very fortunate to be a bridesmaid at a dear
I was very fortunate to be a bridesmaid at a dear friends wedding in July. So this review isn’t from a bride & grooms perspective. The day was absolutely perfect and started with the bridal party ladies getting ready in the Manor House, Mr & Mrs Wyatt’s family home. This was such a wonderful start to the day and a memory to treasure. For me as a guest the day seemed to run so smoothly in such an idyllic setting, aided by very attentive staff, with excellent food, service and an abundance of suns

Travel Notes

We are situated just off the A24 before you enter the village of Findon. As you turn into Nepcote (leading into Nepcote Lane) drive for 500 metres until you reach a very sharp left hand bend. At this bend turn immediately right into the Cissbury Estate. Follow the right hand track all the way down and then bare right and drive as if you are going into the horse stables. Then turn immediately left up the track to the Barns. Is is signposted as you enter Cissbury Estate.

Enjoy the journey. The planning should be fun and enjoyable. Enjoy connecting with all your suppliers and getting creative with all your dreams and ideas for your day.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

It is true that the devil is in the detail. Favourite that is so difficult. I remember one couple who had 120 guests for their place setting they found a picture of that guest with them at some point in their lives and printed it off and made it into their place setting. You can imagine the reaction as everyone sat down and a great memory to share and talk about with everyone at the table. Loved it.
