“Our 1st wedding back after Lockdown! "We wanted to thank you for everything you have done for us, both on the day and in the run up. We had a perfect day and really appreciate your support in making it happen. From helping us switch the date, to chasing our notice of marriage waiver and even putting up the tent, we truly believe that we wouldn't have had the day we had with out your hard work."”

You all did a fantastic job, nothing was too much and the venue looked perfect. You kept us all so relaxed and comfortable even when I was getting nervous! Thank you to you and all your team. ”

“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”

“"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!"”
