Idyllic Venue. Beautiful Place to get Married
Michelle, Christina and the whole Cissbury team are fantastic. From the very beginning they were so friendly and approachable and helped us through the whole wedding process! Our wedding day ran so smoothly, all of our guests commented on how seamlessly everything flowed and how idyllic the venue is. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful place to get married. Thank you so much! Cassie & Dave

We had the Best day at Cissbury Barns
We had the best day getting married at Cissbury Barns! The staff were fantastic offering us so much support and advice before, during and even after the day. We knew we were in good hands! On the day Christina went above and beyond even giving me her coat when I was cold and Michelle was lovely very helpful before, during and after the day. Thank you so much to all the staff! When we postponed our first date everyone was very helpful and understanding. We knew we wanted to get married there and were not disappointed the venue, suppliers and staff were perfect thank you so much!

What a day! Phenomenal
Firstly, we will be sending a formal card to you all but my gosh! What a day! Everyone at Cissbury were phenomenal, they made us feel so care free and excited from Friday morning until we left on Saturday night. Christina was amazing but that word doesn’t really cover it. We will forever be grateful for everything she did for us! There was also a lovely lady when we arrived who wasn’t meant to be working and drove Alex to the house and she was fantastic, I also loved that she stayed just to see me arrive, it was like seeing a friend which is what I needed! We will send you some pictures of us for you to use on the website etc as I want everyone to see what an incredible venue and team it is there! I’m going to have to stop rambling but I want to keep going because there’s so much to say.

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.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Every single wedding day is special and so unique. We absolutely love each and every one of them. We are not a dry hire venue so we really get to know all of our couples and help and guide them through from the moment they book to being with them on their Wedding Day.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

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.
