Perfect from start to finish

We got married at Eden Ban 4th June 2023 and it was everything we dreamed of!

Eden Barn was the first and only wedding venue we visited and we knew instantly it was the one for us. We'd seen so many photos and already knew we loved it but the barn in person is something else!

Cliff, Carolyn and family could not have been more helpful. The months leading up to the wedding and the day itself, nothing was too much. Everything ran so seamlessly and stress free on the day - we knew we were in great hands.

Southcott catering did an amazing job at getting food out promptly and to such a high standard. We had so many compliments from our guests on the food who tucked into the Cumbrian feasting board.

We can't thank you enough for such a perfect day, and we hope one day we get to experience the venue again as a wedding guest.

Thank you so so much!

Where do I start??

Wow, where do I start with eden barns wedding venue?
First of all, it is thee most incredible venue we've ever seen/visited. Eden barn was the second venue we viewed, the first one wasn't what we wanted (which we thought it would be) and so we didn't hold out much hope for any future viewings, so we booked 4 more - the first of the 4 being eden barn, let's just say as soon as we left I cancelled the other 3 venue viewings. As soon as we got there we knew that's where we would get married. And then we got talking with Cliff and Carolyn - the parents of the family. What a wonderful couple, they told us everything we needed to know, we didn't leave having had more questions, the next day we provisionally booked our November 2023 wedding. For the 2 years of planning, the Harker family were so on the ball with answering our questions, queries, worries and excitement based emails/calls. They made us feel like we were the only wedding they had going on.
The day - the day ran more perfect than we could have ever wished for, and I honestly think it was down to these guys. From Carolyn carrying my dress through wet puddles to get me down the aisle, to cliff climbing ladders to try and get the boys' football down off the roof!
The Harker family , Cliff, Carolyn, Andrea and Julia- who all played different roles to ensure our day was perfect , are the most beautiful family - inside and out that we have ever met. We're truly grateful for everything they did.
Thank you again. Beth and Dan Wright x

Amazing people

We got married in 2022 at the beautiful Eden Barn! We live on the Isle of Man & 80% of our guests travelled from there to attend our wedding and they were all absolutely blown away. We chose this gorgeous venue during lockdown so had to have a virtual tour, Andrea was very helpful, she showed us every detail and answered all our questions, we were looking for a dog friendly relaxed place in the country to fit in with our personalities and it stole our hearts immediately. The Harker family were amazing throughout the planning and helped us choose all of our incredible venders and we couldn’t recommend this place enough!! We had the most perfect day, thank you all for playing a huge part of it, every little detail was spot on.✨

The day of our dreams

There are no words that can describe just how grateful we feel to have found Eden Barn for our wedding. It was the dream venue, not only for its stunning surroundings and breathtaking barn, but also for the team. The Harkers and the rest of the team went above and beyond to make sure we had the perfect day. We felt so at ease and taken care of in the run up to the wedding and on the day itself. They helped us to consider little details that we hadn’t thought of which just made the day all the more memorable and special. Eden Barn will forever be our favourite place.

Outstanding Venue 🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍

David & Louise Sharp - Wedding Day at Eden Barn 20/06/22

What an amazing venue, it was the only venue we viewed and we fell in love with it immediately. The attention to detail was impeccable as was the whole Harker Family and their staff.

The communication between Eden Barn and ourselves from first booking the venue to the big day itself was outstanding. A very attentive, thoughtful and inspirational team indeed and we would not hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone.

If and when we ever decide to renew our vows, it would be here again without a doubt.

Southcotts Catering were fantastic and their service throughout the day was amazing. All our guests said they’d never had food to this standard at any previous wedding.

Perfect, perfect and more perfect - thank you.

A wonderful venue and team

Our wedding took place at the stunning Eden Barn at the end of April 2022. We can honestly say that the day was perfect. The Harker family and team at Eden Barn were so helpful and friendly both before the wedding in the planning stages, and on the day itself. The whole team really went the extra mile to ensure our wedding ran smoothly and everything went according to our plans. Eden Barn is a magical venue and will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

The best venue, team and food!!

We had the most amazing wedding at Eden Barn, we would 100% recommend this venue to any couples searching for a bespoke day at a stunning venue. From our first visit to the barn, we knew The Harkers were different, the real pride they have for the venue shines through in everything they do, and they were so flexible meaning that we were really able to personalise the day to our preferences. We had to postpone our wedding twice due to covid, and we really appreciated that the Eden Barn team made this as easy as it could possibly be for us, they saved us so much stress. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful, and year by year the Harkers have added more special touches to make it even more stunning. The food by Southcott Catering was also exceptional, high end restaurant quality, and we got so many compliments from our guests on both the venue and the food. In short, if you are considering Eden Barn - go for it. The customer service and family mentality of the team make it the most perfect choice!

The Best Wedding experience you could ever ask for

We got married at Eden Barn on the 23rd October 2021, after 2 postponements, we could honestly not have asked for a more perfect venue or day. Cliff, Carolyn & Andrea made sure the day ran perfectly. All the little details and management of the day was sorted and dealt with so that we had a stress free day. We only needed to visit one wedding venue to know that it was the place for us and we would recommend the whole Harker family to anyone looking at getting married in a stunning venue. All our guests were well taken care of and we all just want to repeat the whole day. Also Southcott Catering who work alongside Eden Barn were amazing and the food was absolutely beautiful. All in all an extremely perfect & magical day.

I cannot recommend Eden Barn enough!

I cannot recommend Eden Barn enough! Not only is the venue itself excellent from a setting, aesthetic and functionality perspective, the Harker family running the venue really went above and beyond to ensure us and our guests were well looked after. They'd thought of every detail to ensure a smooth day and genuinely cared that everyone there had a great time.

Our Perfect Day

We got married at Eden Barn on 3rd September and it was everything we could have wanted and more! Cliff and Carolyn were the perfect hosts, taking us through every step of our planning and our day beautifully. Our guests and our suppliers haven’t stopped talking about our day and how beautiful and perfect Eden Barn is. Our day ran so smoothly and it’s a testament to how brilliant the Eden Barn team are at their jobs. Jen at Southcott Catering (the amazing exclusive suppliers) was amazing and our guests also commented on how good the food was (especially the canapés!!). We had the best day of our lives at Eden Barn, we just want to do it all over again!

The most perfect day

My wife and I had our wedding here on 17th March 24, which was Eden Barn’s first of the season. It was the best day of our lives, and I cannot thank Eden Barn enough for everything. The most professional, exceptional and wonderful staff enabled a smooth day throughout. Couldn’t recommend enough! If only we could do it all again..
