“From the moment we walked into the Great Barn we knew it was the venue for us. It has a relaxed but really special feel and the venue and grounds are absolutely stunning which is perfect for capturing really beautiful photos.”

Rowan & Doug

“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."”
