Absolutely amazing

Everyone at Alcumlow were extremely helpful, kind and friendly. Our wedding day couldn’t have gone better and that was thanks to them. The venue is absolutely breathtaking! It was a beautiful day and I would recommend to everyone!

Amazing Venue

This is the most amazing venue with the most fantastic members of staff. From our initial enquiry to our amazing special day, nothing was too much trouble for the team at Alcumlow and they always went above and beyond to make our day a special one. We first walked through the make believe Fairytale Gates and we were just wowed by the how absolutely beautiful this hidden gem of a venue really is and in the words of many of our guests, it’s a venue that just keeps on giving. Beverley and Charlie were always on hand, even through the height of the Covid to answer any questions and put us at ease. Even with the uncertainty of what the restrictions would be, the team were amazing, flexible, friendly and professional at all times. The day was just perfect, the team really captured everything that we were looking for, a unique set of decorations and a bespoke menu made just for us. Carol and the team dressed our venue beautifully with all our weird and wonderfully quirky pieces, we can’t thank you enough. Todd and Jake were fantastic at hosting all of our guests and coordinated our wedding in a professional and assertive manner, making you feel in safe hands all day. All of the team always addressed the members of the wedding party by name in all situations, which said to us that this is a venue that really cares about its clients, and this really showed from start to finish. Genuinely and honestly from the bottom of our hearts we can’t thank Alcumlow and the whole team for hosting and making our wedding so stress free and effortless. You will be forever in our hearts and memories made for a lifetime.

Intimate fairy tale wedding

We had the most amazing day. Everyone at Alcumlow Wedding Barn were so professional and did everything in their power to make our wedding day feel like a fairy tale. Even though times are difficult at the moment and we could only invite 13 of our family members, they pulled out all the stops to make the day perfect.
My husband and I would recommend Alcumlow Wedding Barn to anyone looking for the perfect venue. Not only are they value for money, but they are there to help you from start to finish with anything or everything. Nothing is too much trouble.

The most incredible wedding venue!

I know it’s a cliche but we knew we wanted to get married at Alcumlow Wedding Barn as soon as we laid eyes on it! It’s a beautiful, unique and very special venue run by a fantastic team - we had an absolutely faultless experience with the venue right through from booking in 2016 to the big day itself in 2018. We really can’t say anything negative! So many of our guests commented on how beautiful the barn was, and also how good the food (by Ridgways) was. The event organisation through the team was also seamless, as they took care of everything from liaising with suppliers re DJ/photo booth setup and also setting the tables for us, always extremely patient, friendly and accommodating. It really just was the perfect venue for us, and we would thoroughly recommend it to any couples looking for a beautiful, friendly wedding venue!

The perfect wedding venue

Whilst searching for our wedding venue, this was literally the first place I took more than a passing interest in.
Having lived in the surrounding area for 25 years I was only aware of its existence in its former guise as the ‘Turkey farm’, was keen to see how things had moved on.
Made an appointment with Charlie, who treated us like royalty from the very first meet, needless to say one look inside the barn and we were sold on the idea.
The attention to detail that has been pored in to creating this stunning venue is amazing, our guests were literally gobsmacked, had never seen anything like it.
The wedding day itself went fabulously, we had perfect weather to have the ceremony outdoors in the atrium, nothing could be faulted it went like a dream.
We keep reliving the moment as it was truly the best day of our lives.

The Most Perfect Day!

The only venue we viewed! As soon as we walked through the gates we knew that this was the venue for us. After meeting Bev, Todd and Charlie we were guided and assisted with the whole process. There was no pressure as to what is best, but plenty of advice based upon their experience.

We were bowled over by the care and attention given by all of the staff at Alcumlow on our wedding day. From arriving for the ceremony, right through the day there was always somebody there making sure that our special day ran smoothly.

Planning your perfect wedding could be so stressful, this was taken away by the hardworking staff at Alcumlow. Such close attention to detail and security that your wishes are followed.

Beautiful wedding barn, surroundings and we managed to get the weather too!!

Everyone commented on what a lovely day it was, and how “they have never been to a wedding like that before “!!

We can’t thank you enough and would highly recommend Alcumlow Hall Farm as a wedding venue.

Everything and more for the perfect day

This review of Alcumlow Wedding Barn cannot possibly contain enough words to completely express our appreciation.

When it came time to selecting our venue we knew that we wanted a rustic feel and not the corporate hotel factor.

We thank our lucky stars that we found you!

Alcumlow is the perfect wedding venue and from the very first viewing, Todd, Bev, Charlie, Carol and everyone else in the team could not have done more to make sure we had the perfect day.

The new addition of the Bridal Prep Room also added to the satisfaction of the day and was perfect for the ladies to get ready in beautiful spacious surroundings.

Without their help our special day would not have been the picture-perfect event we always dreamed of.

Your planning, preparation, and attention to detail was amazing - even down to the free transport at the end of the day.

The venue is also a "dream" location for photographers and both our wedding pictures and video mean that we have a lasting memory of a wonderful day.

Thank you so much.

White Wedding at Alcumlow

We had our wedding reception here on the 12th May and we can’t thank the team at Alcumlow enough. From all the initial first meetings, emails, the day before the wedding setting up and throughout the whole process they were all so professional, friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble.

The day itself couldn’t have been more perfect or run any smoother. The barn looked amazing, we got so many comments about what a lovely venue it was and how people had never been to such a beautiful and different wedding venue.

We can’t thank or recommend Alcumlow enough, friendly, professional, helpful and such a gorgeous wedding venue! Thank you so much for making our day everything we wanted and more.

Could not have wished for more

As soon as we walked in to this beautiful venue we knew it was where we wanted to get married. The fairy lights and rustic feel alongside the wonderful service provided by Beverly, Todd and Charlie made the whole package absolutely perfect. Holding umbrellas over us in the rain so we didn't get wet and ensuring our guests had transport to get home at the end of the night were just some of the many personal touches this amazing team provided to ensure our day was perfect. We truly could not have wished for a more perfect venue and people to help plan and share our day with. We wish we could do it all over again and could not recommend this place enough.

The most wonderful venue.

Me and my fiance had been engaged for 6 years and never really found “the venue”... until we visited Alcumlow. I knew from the moment I arrived that it was the one. It’s absolutely perfect in every way. Charlie looked after us from the very start, she was always there to put my mind and ease and give advice. She really was amazing. The barn and it’s location is just perfect. Everything is just perfect. We had the most wonderful day and I can’t thank the team enough for everything they did for us.

Amazing Venue

We knew that Alcumlow was the place for us as soon as we walked in, and after meeting Bev and Todd it sealed the deal. The whole team are such down to earth people who go above and beyond to make your day perfect. We had the ceremony at a nearby church, and the Alcumlow team were stood waiting for the car to arrive to welcome us. Personal touches such as that really make you feel special and at ease on the day.
This venue is stunning in its own right, you immediately feel warm when you walk inside! We would re live the day over and over again if we could. Thank you to Bev, Todd and the rest of the team for helping to make our day unforgettable.

Amazing place to get married

We looked at so many venues and we had to started to give up of ever finding somewhere that had everything we wanted until we went to alcumlow it's just so different with amazing attention to detail. We had an amazing wedding here with pictures you couldn't have anywhere else in a blacksmiths, in a cornfield and on an old tractor. The people who run this place also can't do enough for you what ever your ideas maybe. Highly recommended by the bride and groom and loved by our guests.

Absolutely perfect

When when we booked our wedding 2 and a half years ago we would never have imagined how amazing our day would be.
From start to finish over the years everyone has been amazing and so so helpful. It has been so exciting to see other weddings take place there before ours and when our day finally came it was just perfect.
The outdoor ceremony was gorgeous and I’m so glad the sun was shining for us! The whole decor across the barn and court yards was just how I had dreamed! Every single guest commented on how gorgeous the place looked and many even said it was the best wedding & venue they had ever been to!
Bev & Todd, you both should be so so proud of what you have, it’s an absolutely gorgeous place! Thank you again for making our day so so perfect! I will be recommending the venue to everyone I know. One of the girls who came in the evening (who is 16) has already decided that’s where she wants to get married!
Charlie, thank you SO much for dealing with me & letting me mither you until the early hours of the morning in the run up to the big day!
