Alicia & Oliver - Cripps Barn, October 2023

I cannot recommend Cripps Barn highly enough as a wedding venue for a truly special day. The service and organisation was fantastic from the moment we booked, right through to collecting our things the next morning. James, Aimee, Toby and the team are constantly working to ensure everything is perfect and the venue itself is just stunning. The only negative is that we can't rebook and do it all again!

Amazing, faultless wedding venue

Where to start! We can’t thank you enough for all you did to make our wedding day so special on Saturday (Oct 2023), as well as being so helpful and supportive through all the prep.

Since we first saw the barn with Aimee in August 2022 (another hot day!) it’s been such a magical time and a big part of that was due to our experience with your team, and Aimee in particular.

Your team is everything we could ask for in our main supplier - reliable, friendly, supportive, genuine and fabulously organised. We knew our day was in the most capable hands and you honestly went above and beyond.

From managing the surprise band for our guests, having the BEST veggie feast menu, ensuring no one went hungry or thirsty all day (we had so many compliments on the mocktails, canapés and pizza as well as our ‘main event’ feast and wine) and keeping us calm when we ended up needing a stand-in photographer, you all were the ‘glue’ that made our day what it was.

Can’t thank you enough, or recommend you highly enough to other couples choosing a venue.

We don't know where to start. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU CRIPPS BARN for hosting the most amazing wedding, beyond our wildest dreams. It was without a doubt the best day of our lives and we are so grateful to you and your fabulous team for making sure the entire day ran so smoothly and perfectly. We just wish we could do it all over again, it was truly incredible and we have had so many compliments from our family and friends about the friendly and helpful service, the unbelievable food, the beautiful barn setting, just everything, everybody absolutely loved it! The moment we walked into Cripps Barn we knew it was where we wanted to get married. The communication from the Cripps team was brilliant and made planning our wedding so easy and enjoyable. Aimee, who was our Front of House for the day was nothing short of amazing. She looked after us and everything else on the day, was so bubbly and friendly to everyone and nothing was too much trouble, we thank you so much Aimee! James was also incredible during our planning meeting and throughout and all of the staff on the day helped make the day run so smoothly. Everything was a 10 out of 10 and just stunning! Do not hesitate to book your wedding at Cripps Barn, you definitely will not be disappointed. Thank you again to the Cripps team for helping to make our most special day the best day of our lives!

Simply the best!

From start to finish the amazing team at Cripps Barn made the process seamless and helped us every step of the way. The team were responsive to all our queries and any changes were accommodated without hesitation. Aimee was our front of house for the day and she couldn't have done more to make sure the day ran smoothly.

The venue and grounds blew us away at the initial viewing, but seeing it all made up with flowers and personal touches on the day was even better.

The food was a real highlight and we would thoroughly recommend attending a Feast Night before the big day to try all the options.

We can't thank the team at Cripps Barn enough for making our wedding day the most perfect day. We just wish we could do it all again!

The most perfect beautiful venue!!

Well where do I start the moment I walked into Cripps Barn I knew it was where I wanted our wedding. The communication from the Cripps was incredible throughout, it’s like having your own wedding planners they make it ease and stress free for you. When our wedding day came it was perfect from start to finish. The venue looked incredible, Meg was amazing and looked after us all day. Nothing was too much trouble. From the food, the drinks, the tables, the service and so much more was 10 out of 10. The little touches of candles etc went a long way. Everything was perfect down to the small details. The location is just stunning!! If your thinking about having your wedding here do it you will not be disappointed. It’s sooo lovely to hear the feedback from our guests too who said this is the best wedding they have ever been too and venue was incredible. Thank you Cripps for help making our special the day the best day of our lives.

What a beautiful day

We got married in June 2023 and the whole team at Cripps were so helpful from our initial viewing to booking and planning our big day. The team were so responsive and flexible, even with a last minute change from an error I made. Megan was our front of house for the day. She was so reassuring and made everything run seamlessly and made the day just flow perfectly for us and our guests. The venue just speaks for itself. The main building and the grounds are just stunning and it was everything I ever imagined and more. We had the most amazing day, as did our guests. Thank you to the whole Cripps team!

Perfection!

‘Perfection’ is the only way to describe our wedding and our experience with the team at Cripps Barn. From our very first call to the day of the wedding itself, the team were incredibly supportive, kind and personal. There wasn’t any question too silly or request too difficult - especially from Aimee who managed our planning meeting and was front of house on the day. Quite honestly she made the experience for us, quelled any anxieties and was a welcomed smiling face that guided us effortlessly throughout.
The venue itself is outstanding. Our guests were overwhelmed and impressed by the beautiful surroundings, the incredible food and the amazing staff.
There aren’t enough positive words and phrases to express how grateful we are to the team at Cripps for making our day what it was, thank you.

The most perfect venue!

If you are questioning about booking your weeding here...DO IT. Communication was fantastic, they were so accommodating when we had to move the date, our organiser made us feel so at ease when hiccups happened and they were in control the whole time. The venue was beautiful and so warm. The real candles were such a treat. The food was a highlight for so many which wasn't easy for our veggie wedding. The best day - Cripps Barn was perfect - thank you!

The most magical, perfect day

Everything about this venue is just perfection, we got married at the end of November, but it still felt really warm and cosy inside. And the big outdoor fire pits to toast marshmallows we're amazing.
All of the staff were so helpful and accommodating. A big special thank you to Meg who was so organised and professional, and kept turning up by my side with a drink.

Fantastic!

We had a fantastic wedding at Cripps Barn. There were a never ending flow of compliments from family and friends in the following days!

They were always friendly, prompt and professional with the organisation and prep. This was particularly appreciated since we had our little one year old on our hands.

The days manager was friendly and efficient - putting us at ease and ensuring each phase of the day flowed smoothly.

The food was loved by our most picky and foodie guests :))) And the sound system worked perfectly and sounded superb.

Of course we got the most incredible photos in the surrounding gardens and countryside. The evening bonfires were well tended and looked even better than in any of the pictures.

Everyone was asking - "How did you find this place!?"

Thank you Cripps team for being everything we had hoped for!

Me and my partner could not recommend this venue enough! They delivered our perfect day whilst making the entire experience as easy and relaxing for us as possible. The staff are extremely good at what they do and the venue itself is perfect for a Cotswolds wedding. Do not hesitate to use this venue!

Our amazing wedding

We got married at Cripps October 2021 and all I can say is WOW. Everything from the moment we booked Cripps as our venue in 2019 was just beyond our expectations. Aimee and James on the day were simply incredible. Our guests were blown away by the beauty of the venue!
Thank you Cripps!
