Full Description
The stunning Apple Barn is licensed for your civil ceremony. With beautiful views, your outdoor ceremony is in a truly magical setting, with the option to hold your ceremony inside our marquee. Following your ceremony, we encourage you to enjoy the acres of land for photographs and activities, retiring to the Crown Barn terrace for your drinks reception. Meanwhile, you can take the opportunity to visit our lakes for your stunning wedding photos and take in the beautiful Sussex countryside as the new Mr & Mrs! The Crown Barn is ideal for your wedding celebrations, accommodating 200 guests for a wedding breakfast, a daytime minimum number of 80 adult guests. The barn was hand-built using local oak, brick and stone and has been finished with exposed beams and gothic-inspired chandeliers. The barn’s features are modern yet rustic and provide the ideal canvas for your reception. An entire side of the barn can be opened up to let the outside in; you can have the feel of an outdoor event without the commitment to unpredictable weather. Our newly paved drinks reception area is beautifully sheltered by stunning willow trees, creating a relaxed place in which to enjoy a few refreshments and your guests’ company, with benches, outdoor seating and even Fire Pits. You will be able to design your own wedding breakfast with the assistance of our team. From creative canapes, to formal three-course meals to hog roasts, BBQs and street food, there are there are a variety of dishes plus the opportunity to experience some of Circa's quirky evening food options such as The Circa Pizza Van, Bert & Ernie Street Food Karts & Bev the Gelato Bike. Our Gothic inspired rustic barn lends itself perfectly to big evening celebrations, with capacity for up to 250 guests, dancefloor included and sofa booths for your any non-dancing guests to kick back and watch the festivities. Our Resident DJ will play all your favourite tunes so you & your guests can dance the night away!

The venue itself is just a dream and there’s so much outside space to make use off! The food is absolutely outstanding and our guests commented so much on how the food was so amazing and ...

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
From the bottom of our hearts thank you so much to all the Circa team for the most perfect day for our wedding at Laughton Barns. Sara, was amazing from the moment we booked our wedding in October 21. She was always at the end of the phone or email throughout the whole process and was quick to reply to our ideas and questions. We've also got to thank Katie for all her hard work on the day she was just incredible, the day just went so smoothly and it was everything and more we ever dreamed off. She was just brilliant from start to finish I honestly don't think we would of have the same experience without her. We loved how she made us feel and really put us at ease, she was always checking in with us and making sure we were ok and enjoying the day. If there was any problems we sure didn't know of any. We can't put into words what the day meant to us and for all the teams hard work and dedication. The food was amazing everyone commented on it and said how beautiful it was especially the canapes! All our friends and family have said what an amazing wedding it was and the most fun wedding they have been too. Thank you Circa. Mr & Mrs Abbott

Massive thanks to you all; please pass it onto everyone else involved Thanks, Andy & Nicki xx
