Our venue was Laughton Barns, which was very close to my parents’ house. We had known the Barns as a Country Fayre and Steam Show Ground and had no idea that it did weddings until we came to the process of finding a rustic venue close to home, big enough to accommodate our 170 guests. It was the only venue we looked at and we knew as soon as we saw it that it would work perfectly for us. We were also lucky that the weekend we arranged to see it, Gareth’s parents were visiting from Hull. We all went together with my parents to meet with Marc (Circa Events) so we were reassured that everyone loved it before we went ahead and booked it. The food was an important part of our day and luckily we had to book our venue through the caterers Circa, who cater exclusively for this venue. We knew of Circa from when they had run a restaurant in our local town Lewes, so knew their food was amazing! They also provided the wait and bar staff who were very helpful and proactive. Our guests loved the food and we have had so many nice comments on it all.
