The light-filled East Barn has floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the South Downs to one side, and the courtyard to the other. It’s wooden beams and neutral colour tones are the ideal backdrop to say ‘I do’. Following your romantic ceremony, your guests move out into the flower-filled courtyard to mingle and enjoy a few drinks and canapes.

Such a special, wonderful and stress-free day
We really did have the most magical and happy day and so many of our guests commented on how brilliant the day was and what an utterly spectacular and gorgeous venue Upwaltham Barns was. We felt very proud and lucky to be able to host our wedding reception there and every single member of staff we dealt with was always so friendly and so helpful, both on the day and also on the run up to the wedding.

We couldn't rate Upwaltham Barns more highly.
We got married there this Autumn and absolutely everything was just perfect. The staff are fantastic and so helpful and dedicated to making your big day run flawlessly and the venue is just beautiful. The drinks from the bar team were a huge hit and the food was incredible and very generous portions for the price- we still get people telling us how amazing it was weeks later. If you're considering getting married here then we promise, you won't regret it! Thank you.

Absolutely stunning
The venue is absolutely stunning. We booked the venue nearly two years previously and were impressed from start to finish. My vege and vegan guests were impressed with the personal emails for their dietary needs. The owners are absolutely lovely and very calming. I was feeling a bit overwhelmed on the day and Nicola was on hand with some delicious homemade elderflower juice. We can’t recommended this venue enough and we will miss our visits there.

The most amazing wedding venue in the south!!
As soon as we walked around the venue at first viewing we knew it was the one for us. It just had a lovely feel about it especially as its family run. We couldn’t fault our special day at all… it was honesty the best day EVER. Upwaltham made it all so easy and I’d do it again in a heartbeat. Thank you all so much!!!
