Southend Barns Chichester Wedding Photography

By Darren Matthews –  Wedding Photographer

Southend Barns near Chichester offers a great location for a barn style wedding day with outdoor areas for everyone to relax & enjoy the wedding day events. From the stunning 200 year old Threshing Barn, the Dairy Barn to the landscaped gardens & hidden courtyards this was the perfect location for Jill & Shaun’s July wedding.

They chose Southend Barns because Jill & Shaun very much wanted an outdoor, English countryside feel to their wedding day with plenty of open & sheltered areas for them both to spend time with all their family & friends. They both fell in love with this stunning venue the first time they made a visit as a potential venue for their big day.

Although not a strict requirement for their guests, Jill asked any attending to come in 1950’s dress & many did, which looks amazing & vibrant, bringing something special to much of the photography. They also had birds of prey (just love the close up taken of Jill with the owl) along with plenty of garden games for everyone to enjoy.

As you can see from this gallery Jill & Shaun had also arranged to have a full-size fairground carousel which was an absolute scream & enjoyed even more by the adults than the children. A complete & wonderful wedding day for the Bride & Groom, their guests & so much fun for their photographers too!
