“An incredible day in an incredible venue “

An incredible day in an incredible venue

Thank you for everything you did for us and our wedding in April 2018. We had a truly incredible day, the best day of our lives and lots of this is down to you. We would highly recommend this venue to all engaged couples looking for their dream wedding venue, moreover, anyone wishing to celebrate a special occasion in an equally special venue.

We knew The Great Barn was the venue for us almost instantly. Set in beautiful countryside, close to the Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire county borders, the barn is idyllic, surrounded by fields, lakes and is set far enough away from the road to spend a day completely on your own or in our case, surrounded by our nearest and dearest with room to spare. The wedding guest capacity is quite large, so the Barn can accommodate most needs.

Laura and Emily were incredibly helpful in terms our planning our day, scheduling a few visits so we could meet with our suppliers and also running through the schedule for the day. The staff also recommended local suppliers which was very helpful such as our florist Willow & Thyme and our cake maker Cakes for all UK.

And onto the catering…Kearney’s Catering run exclusively at the Barn and we can safely say that the catering on offer is worth every penny. The food was simply delicious and our guests said how wonderful it was, everything from our canapes to our evening pizza bar! David helped us create a menu from scratch, perfect for the season and enough to suit all tastes and cater for all appetites! On the day Jerry and Sue from Kearney’s ensured our day ran like clockwork, we never had the opportunity to thank you properly for all that you did but thank you for looking after us and our guests so well.

Thank you for such an amazing day in an amazing venue, we will look back fondly on the memories we made at The Great Barn for the rest of our lives.

“We instantly fell in love with the barn.”

Simply magical 💖 from our first meeting with Emily we knew that this place was where we wanted to get married, we instantly fell in love with the barn. From this very first meeting the planning of the wedding was professionally done, any questions or queries were answered immediately and nothing was ever too much trouble. On the day itself everything was more than perfect and Jerry was simply brilliant. The food and canapés was amazing, everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the food, so thank you Dave and team. The attention to detail is always at the highest and we had so many compliments on how beautiful the barn was, how lovely the food was and everyone had the best time. Thank you Jerry and your team, you made our day the best ever, this truly is an amazing venue to get married and you should all be so proud of the jobs you do.

“We can’t fault anything.”

Thank you so much for everything over the past few months. We had a great time on Saturday night and many of our guest commented on the beautiful  venue and also the standard of food. We were really pleased with the running of the event. Emails were responded to in quick time and the venue was flexible in what we could do to make it personal for us. We can’t fault anything.

“Everyone was so impressed by the venue and the atmosphere you all created for us.”

A huge thank you to Jerry and the team for looking after Charlotte and Craig so well for their wedding on Good Friday. You made them and all of us so welcome from the moment Charlotte and her Bridesmaids arrived at about 8.30. Everything was organised so well. The Barn looked magnificent. The canapes and meal were fabulous and your staff so attentive and friendly throughout. Jerry, you were a great Master of Ceremonies. I know that Andy, the photographer, and the musicians were equally pleased to be spending time there. The weather was not kind but that didn’t matter in the slightest. Everyone was so impressed by the venue and the atmosphere you all created for us. A memorable day for all, not least the Bride and Groom. Over the last year I have spoken with so many people who have been to weddings with you and they all spoke so highly of your venue. I can see why. Thankyou, from the Father of the Bride.

“all staff were extremely friendly and professional”

We booked The Great Barn two years prior to the wedding and we felt all staff to be more than accommodating whenever we wanted to look around the venue, or had any questions. On the day of our wedding all staff were extremely friendly and professional. They helped the day run smoothly and took all the stress away from us. I would definitely recommend booking the dressing room as it allowed the bridal party to get ready comfortably prior to the wedding. We would highly recommend The Great Barn to anyone looking at getting married locally.

“The little details and efforts like that are what made the day.”

We both just wanted to say a huge, huge thank you to you and all the team at The Great Barn for our wedding on 1st July. The day was so wonderful, I can’t begin to thank you all enough! Everything was just absolutely perfect. The venue itself is beautiful anyway but the way it was set up with all our flowers and decorative bits was incredible – you did a fantastic job. The day ran so smoothly and everything was done to perfection. I even remember talking to Rich about wanting a tea when I got a chance and the next thing I know someone had brought me one! The little details and efforts like that are what made the day. Over the (almost) 2 years we spent organising the day, Laura you were amazing and nothing was ever too much trouble. It was so reassuring to know that I could contact you really easily about all sorts of things and you really understood exactly what we wanted from the day. It was so perfect –  we will treasure it forever. 

Thank you so very much!

“We received lots of compliments about the beautiful venue and grounds”

We would like to thank you for all your help in planning our wedding on 8 July this year and making sure everything went well on the day.

We had a wonderful day and loved the venue. We received lots of compliments about the beautiful venue and grounds, which look fantastic in our pictures. Also, the food was amazing!

The staff were very accommodating and attentive to all of the guests and ensuring they enjoyed themselves, for which we are very grateful.

“You helped in no small way to make the wonderful memory wanted.”

Just a quick note to say a very, very big “thank you” for helping to make our daughters wedding such a wonderful success. Having done our homework and after visited many venues I had high expectations when we made the reservation with you. I am very happy to admit that these were exceeded in every way. Your pre-planning experience, attentive advice and guidance were all perfect; staffing quality and numbers on the day were not found wanting; neither was your excellent management and coordination which were very well provided. More than anything was the noticeable attention to detail, most everyone commented on it. We could not have asked for more. You helped in no small way to make the wonderful memory wanted.

“Thank you for your patience”

Just to say thank you so much for all your help with planning our wedding.  We really had the best day, and the barn and garden looked so beautiful. You were so easy going and great to work with, and we felt like our wedding was in very safe hands! Please also pass our thank you for your patience (with me especially)! I will always remember him hanging up those garlands from the curtain rail on the morning!
