ceilidh first dance

The Sussex Barn near Hailsham, Sussex (30 mins from Brighton) is one of those ceilidh / barndance venues that seems tailor made for dancing! There’s plenty of space to get your reel on yet it’s still cosy and inviting. Ceilidh Tree had a fine evening performing for Jo and Tom’s Sussex wedding barndance. We kicked off with our favourite first ceilidh dance, the Virginia Reel – bride and groom at the top of the set, this set up a joyful vibe which happily flowed through the night. We also provided disco lighting and use of our PA for the couple’s own iPod playlist to finish. Pics, videos and kind feedback courtesy of the bride below.

” The ceilidh was absolutely amazing, the band were great and it is one of my highlights of the wedding. All of the guests had such a great time, the dance floor was so packed the whole night as everyone wanted to be involved. I would highly recommend you in the future.” – Joanna Williams, The Sussex Barn, East Sussex
