If you are planning to hold a ceremony at the barn then you will either need to hire a registrar through West Sussex County Council or you can also hire a celebrant to conduct your ceremony. If you choose a celebrant we have some suppliers we can recommend however this is not a legal ceremony. For more details on registrars and celebrant see our blog post ‘celebrate your day with a celebrant’.
