Bury Court Barn is a versatile wedding venue, nestled in the delightful Hampshire countryside on the edge of the South Downs but close to the border of Surrey with West Sussex. The central building is an old threshing barn colourfully surrounded by a series of beautiful landscaped gardens, providing wedding parties with a welcome feeling of completely private seclusion.

Wedding couples at Bury Court can take full advantage of the picturesque surroundings by using the outdoor areas for drinks receptions, games and even a barbeque if the weather permits! The interior of the threshing barn is equally beautiful, however, with old oak beams and traditional decoration, and makes for a perfect setting for the formal parts of the wedding celebrations.


There are hints on maps from the 17th century that Bury Court then existed as a small village. It became a busy hop-farm and thrived as such until the 1980s. The influence of the hop-farm can still be seen today, particularly the oasthouse which can be used by the newlyweds as their wedding-night accommodation.

In the mid-nineties it became Green Farm Plants, a successful nursery. The gardens were created to showcase plants sold in the nursery on the site of the former partially-walled farmyard.

The threshing barn, where weddings take place, was moved to the site in the 1930s, and then restored and converted in 2002.


The Threshing Barn

The Barn can be divided with curtains to create the ceremony area, which can fit up to 150 guests, with space for musicians. Alternatively, wedding parties can use a built-in sound system.

Civil Ceremony Capacity - 150 Guests

The wedding breakfast area is traditionally kitted out with large round tables and a long top table, and linen and tableware are provided by the caterer. There is lots of space for any desired extras - wedding parties in the past have featured a chocolate fountain or pick'n'mix table. The barn is fully heated in winter, making it very snug, yet is cool and breezy during the summer.

Wedding Breakfast Capacity - 150 Guests

The dancefloor area can easily be set up without the necessity to move any tables, meaning that those guests needing a time out from dancing do not have to be uprooted from their chairs.

Evening Reception Capacity - 150 Guests

The gallery upstairs can be used however the bride and groom wish; an area to relax, or even a space for extra entertainment.

The Gardens

Couples are invited to use their imagination to take advantage of the grounds at Bury Court. Your wedding party could enjoy a drinks and canapés reception outside on the terrace, which has lots of space for musical or other entertainment. The tree-lined courtyard is another area which would be perfect for games, a bar, marquee, or informal treats like hog-roasts or barbecues.

The landscape is picturesque and presents some delightful and unique photo-opportunities. The Courtyard Garden was laid out by John Coke and notable Dutch garden architect Piet Oudolf, who created a walled garden featuring ornamental grasses and hardy perennials in a naturalistic style. The Front Garden is the work of Christopher Bradley-Hole. It contrasts to the Courtyard Garden, and features tall grasses with flowing perennials, and proudly showcases a stunning reflective pool as a centrepiece.


Bury Court Barn prefer to work with Jacaranda Catering, who have a distinct flair and enthusiasm for preparing delicious cuisine. Their expertise ranges from 'street food'-style dining to a traditional British wedding breakfast with a modern twist, but they ensure that their dishes are seasonal and fresh, whatever types of presentation are required. They are completely flexible and love to devise individual menus for each bride and groom.


The beautiful, traditional Oasthouse cottage is perfect for the bridal preparations, as the location for bridesmaids and family members also to get ready, and can additionally be used by the newlywed couple as a honeymoon suite on their wedding night.

    A fantastic setting, a hidden gem with beautiful and ample space inside and out. There's a fantastic atmosphere from the minute you enter the grounds. All staff we came into contact with were fantastic, friendly. Last but not least, the food was out of this world. Complements to the catering team I've never had food like it in my life (not even my mum’s cooking).
