Upwaltham Barns South Downs National Park Wedding
Daniel & Sophie had their beautiful wedding at Upwaltham Barns in the South Downs National Park, West Sussex.
From their home in Chichester, we made our way to East Lavant’s St. Mary’s. It is a beautiful and historic Anglican parish church dating back to the medieval period.
Their wedding reception was at Upwaltham Barns, one of the most charming wedding venues in South England. Set in the scenic South Downs National Park, this family-run venue was the perfect setting for their wedding.
