Olivia & Charles

“We had our Wedding at The Great Barn in October and what an absolutely wonderful day it was. The venue is just stunning, and Laura and the team were superb to deal with from day one and ensured our dream day ran smoothly from start to finish. Accomodating visits with parents, endless questions and best in class service on the day, we couldn't have asked for a more superior Wedding venue and service team. Your Wedding day is one of the most important (and expensive!) days of your life so the stakes are high! Laura and the team at the Great Barn certainly delivered and we would certainly recommend. ”

“"Searching for a venue when you don’t live in the country is not easy but from the moment we sent our enquiry to The Great Barn, they made planning our wedding seamless! Laura, Beth and the team are incredibly responsive, calm and really share the excitement and joy for your big day. The grounds are something out of a movie and you feel like royalty, especially when dining in the amazing barn. We also stayed in the cottage, which was beautiful and the perfect end to an incredible time. We will never forget our day and will be forever grateful to The Great Barn for bringing our dream wedding to life!"”

“Emily and I are just coming down after what was definitely the best weekend of our lives. Thanks for helping make it truly special, keeping things moving on the day, and putting up with long emails full of questions in the run up! You kept us so calm from when we dropped the decorations off on the Friday, right through the day itself which meant we could just enjoy it all. Please pass on our thanks to the rest of the team who helped make it such an amazing day. Had so many guests compliment the venue and how smoothly everything went. ”

“Thank you SO much for making our wedding day so special - it wasn’t easy with covid, but you made it magical and we had fantastic communication throughout! The venue itself is beautiful, we knew we wanted to get married at The Great Barn during our first visit back in 2018 and no other barn compared. The outside space is stunning and the relaxed feel was exactly what we wanted! The dressing room was perfect for bridal prep in the morning and staff were attentive throughout. The attention to detail and wedding breakfast set up was perfect and despite the restrictions this didn’t dampen our day- we had the best time! We will never forget our special day & can’t thank you all enough xx”
