Lorna & Ryan's Southend Barns Spring Wedding

As established locals close to Chichester, Lorna and Ryan would have been no strangers to the abundance of beauty spots surrounding their coastal home; Chichester harbour, the glorious rolling hills of the Southdowns, and of course, the natural and unspoilt sandy beaches of West Wittering. Thus, a no-brainer choice of wedding venue for the couple was Southend Barns. This perfect countryside location close to Chichester Marina is only a short 10-minute drive from the couple’s home and boasts the convenience of being close to the historic city, also with some lovely accommodation options on the doorstep for wedding guests. One of the joys of Lorna and Ryan’s wedding day for me, was having the opportunity to capture a mixture of composed portraits and natural shots of the couple, both in the barn’s lush green manicured gardens and also whilst walking through the surrounding fields at sunset, where the light was golden and truly magical.

Russell & Paul's Southend Barns Spring Wedding

Russell and Paul’s May wedding day was brimming with theatrical splendour, whilst their contemporary styling was accented with dashes of vintage charm. Chichester’s Southend Barns was the wedding venue of choice which worked perfectly for both the intimate wedding ceremony and as a glamorous backdrop to all the outstanding musical elements on the day. The old restored barns seamlessly combine tasteful modern decor with authentic-rustic details, which suited the couple and the wonderful content of their day perfectly.

Abi & Jon's Spring Southend Barns Wedding

It was a crisp early May day and childhood sweethearts, Abi and Jon, were getting married at the picturesque venue of Southend Barns in Chichester. Boasting high ceilings and lofty beams, the rustic barn setting was abounding with copper hues, natural weathered wood and modern stone textures. With lush manicured garden hedges and perfectly mowed lawn-stripes to be seen in the courtyard, the barns were full to the brim with earthy textures and vibrant contrasting spring colours. The couple made the most of the fabulous spaces on offer, even having selected to marry outside in the Secret Garden ceremony area (despite the slight chill in the air)! As guests arrived, the sun shone through the scattering of clouds, revealing an azure blue sky and promoting a warm welcoming ambience.
