16 Oct The Sussex Barn Wedding Film – Jodie and Jamie
The Sussex Barn is a family-run wedding venue in Hellingly, East Sussex. As a working farm, there’s a lovely relaxed feel to the venue, where couple’s can use it as a blank canvas to create the rustic/boho wedding of their dreams.
Located in the East Sussex countryside, The Sussex Barn is surrounded by glorious fields that provide a beautiful backdrop for your ceremony, reception drinks, or couples shoot. Jodie and Jamie chose the venue for their special day, and with access to the venue 2 days beforehand, they were able to spend time decorating it to perfection.
