    Knebworth Barns Wedding October 2019

    This place is amazing. We cannot fault a single thing that the venue did. The staff are so helpful and attentive. On the day and during the planning, we were made to feel at ease. Nothing was too much to ask. We can't thank Knebworth Barns and their staff enough for making our day run so smoothly. The food is incredible. We had so many compliments on how lovely it tasted as well as how organised everything was. we HIGHLY recommend this venue for weddings. You won't be disappointed.

    Jake and Charlotte Wedding May 2019

    Our wedding day at Knebworth was perfect. Everything ran smoothly from start to finish, the staff on the day were efficient and so helpful. A special thanks to Martin for being our brilliant toast master, he is an absolute credit to Knebworth nothing was too much trouble for him and he was there if we needed him right until we all went home. The food was amazing too everyone still comments on our menu choices. The grounds at Knebworth are beautiful and were the perfect back drop for our photos. Overall if you’re looking for a day that runs smoothly and has everything in one place Knebworth and the staff are exactly what you are looking for. Thanks again everyone.

    Wedding of Michelle Fox and Richard Edwards

    My wife and I had a wonderful day, all staff worked extremely hard. In particular I wish to mention the Wedding Planner and Toastmaster who provided a First Class Service, and as such nothing was too much for them.
    We could not have wished for a better day for our daughter Michelle.
    Well done all staff involved that day and evening. Thank you very much.
