18th century Montague Farm offers one of the most unique and stylish wedding venues in Sussex. Designed with stylish, rustic weddings in mind which embrace the stunning local landscape and offers complete exclusivity for couples.

Venue Details

Nestled in the heart of the East Sussex countryside with an 18th century complex of barns enjoying views over the rolling Pevensey marshes to the sea, Montague weddings will enjoy use of some of the most beautiful parts of the farm including a dedicated cluster of barns, especially converted for civil wedding ceremonies and receptions, and the use of extensive, private grounds.

A wedding at Montague starts at its gates and the lime tree-lined driveway which leads up to the farm itself. As you enter the exclusive wedding area of the farm, guests step through into private grounds amidst the cluster of wedding barns which have been especially created with a stylish-meets-rustic weddings in mind. The first building, Pig Palace, is an 18th century single storey barn perfect for hosting a civil wedding, ceremony for up to 120 (can be extended), drinks or even a wedding breakfast of up to 80. With stone flooring, flint walls, beamed ceiling and panoramic windows overlooking the lawns and views of the rolling countryside, Pig Palace is an intimate barn with great style.


Weddings at Montague

Next door to Pig Palace, lies Big Barn which was originally a cattle barn and is now a lovingly converted wedding barn with walls clad in handpicked, reclaimed wood and featuring dramatic wagon-wheel lighting, windows repurposed from the original Orangery on the farm, its own bar and a pretty fairy-lit, white-draped ceiling.  Big Barn can host wedding breakfasts of up to 200, with plenty of room for dancing. Big Barn is styled with chesterfield sofas, Persian rugs, Scottish whisky barrels, a stunning bar and other all the power required for the best party.


Finally and with real prairie-chic charm lies Montague’s dedicated bar. Originally a wooden cabin on the farm, this delightful space has been restored as a bar for weddings, boasting a stylish inside space, complete glass front and raised external verandah with fire pit from which guests can enjoy a drink and take in the incredible views.


The whole wedding area can be exclusively hired by couples who can choose how to use the space to reflect the size and style of their wedding. Montague also offers ample loos, shower facilities and the option of camping for an agreed number of guests. We can arrange furnished bell tents for you and your guests to create a wonderful glamping experience.
