Cissbury Barns | The North Wing | Wedding Venues in Sussex

If you’re looking for a wedding venue in West Sussex Cissbury barns could be for you. With its beautiful grounds, stunning architecture, and perfect location, Cissbury is one of the most popular wedding venues in Sussex.

Today I’m delighted to feature the photographs that I took during a shoot I did for Cissbury Barns, photographing their beautiful North Wing, the perfect bridal accommodation for couples getting married at Cissbury. It was so great to meet the people who are pouring their hearts into perfectly running this family business, starting with amazing Helen Trigg who made this shoot possible as well as the caring, wonderful owners of Cissbury Estate, Etta & Geoffrey.

Cissbury Estate is a family-run stunning country residence situated in South Downs National Park, just south of Findon near Worthing and north of Sussex, West Sussex. Cissbury Barns is the hidden gem that offers a beautiful romantic backdrop for a wedding or special event. Its beautiful surroundings make it ideal for newlywed couples looking for a tranquil ceremony in a rural location.
