The most magical wedding
Stunning 3-Day Wedding!
We opted for a 3-day Friday-Sunday wedding and are so glad we did. The venue could not have been more accommodating and didn’t hesitate to let a small group of us hang around on Sunday afternoon while we waited for our train. Jess and Charlotte were so helpful and put up with all of our irritating last-minute tweaks and changes, without complaint and with a smile. All the recommended suppliers were great, bar a slight hiccup with the DJ, which was resolved quickly and efficiently, and without panic!
We are so grateful for everyone and everything, and would absolutely recommend Doxford Barns to anyone in the future. 10/10, 5 Stars!

Amazing Wedding Day
Doxford Barns organisation unbeatable!
We had the most amazing day!
We had the best time!
Also Amanda was absolutely fantastic all weekend, we didn’t have to worry about a thing and she was so lovely and friendly and really made us feel so comfortable. We couldn’t have wished for anyone better to have run our day. Please pass this on to her as we are so grateful.
The whole pace looked wonderful and the staff could not have been more helpful, working hard to ensure everyone had a great time. Our family and friends were very impressed with the venue and the chosen menu which was vegetarian, was amazing. Thank you for making their special day a truly memorable experience for Amy, Chad and all their guests.
Can not fault the service!
We are on honeymoon now but please be assured we will be putting nothing but good things on your social media as the day was fantastic.

We literally had the best day of our lives!
Everything was seamless
The cottages were spotless and really well equipped, we had a great time in them on Friday night after decorating the venue.
We can't fault Abi, Gemma or any of the staff at our wedding - everything was seamless on the day and communication running up to the weekend was brilliant.
All our guests raved about the food and the venue itself - we have to agree! In the evening when it cleared up our guests loved the outside spaces and the fire pits.
