So Beautiful!

We had the best day at Gildings Barns. Alyson and Trevor were superstars right from the beginning. Alyson had a handle on everything throughout the day and made sure it all ran smoothly.
Was a beautiful venue for our relaxed, special day.

The most perfect wedding venue!

We held our wedding reception at Gildings Barns in November 2023 and could not have been happier with our experience! They were so helpful in the run up to the day, we came to visit a few times beforehand, and were able to run through everything we wanted to. The barn is SO beautiful, all of our guests commented on how lovely the venue was, and we didn't feel it needed too much dressing as the barn is so naturally beautiful. On the day, the team couldn't have been more helpful, everyone went above and beyond so I never felt like we needed to worry about a thing. So highly recommend Gildings for your wedding!

Accommodating, friendly and stunning!

Gildings Barns were simply the best choice we could have made for our wedding, completely professional and very flexible with our vision! They gave useful tips and tricks on our limited budget, and were more than accommodating. Alyson, Tracey and Trevor were amazing and put us at ease every step of the way. The venue itself is gorgeous and needs little decoration to be perfect -- we cannot recommend this venue and team enough!

The most beautiful venue.

Gildings barns is such a beautiful place, even better in person. Staff are incredible, kind and helpful. They have some excellent suggested suppliers who they have a great relationship with which makes everything so smooth. Every one commented on how beautiful the wedding was and how excellent the venue was, and I feel like we didn鈥檛 have to do much at all to make it look so beautiful. I would highly recommend Gildings Barns, it鈥檚 the perfect wedding venue, and a great place for a Ceilidh.
