would recommend anyone and everyone to choose Dove
Dove Barn as a venue sold itself to us very quickly indeed. From when we first went to see it, we almost instantly started to envisage what our wedding could look like there. The final result was so much more than what we had hoped for. It was such a beautiful and relaxed setting, completely out on its own in the stunning Suffolk countryside, situated on a small farm which offered us plenty of space for the large number of guests we had, but also offering us the intimate wedding setting that was right for us. The inside of the barn looked stunning for our ceremony and with Jayson and the caterers’ great work in then turning the barn into a beautiful dining space for the wedding breakfast and speeches. The outside areas particularly were fantastic for a summer wedding, with everyone enjoying the terrace space for drinks and canapes, and then the grass field for summer games and photos, very much looking like a summer fete (just the look we were going for)Sent on 10/12/2018
