The Perfect Wedding

Sara and the whole team at Circa where brilliant from the moment we booked our wedding and even after the big day. Throughout the whole process the team were always there to help and answer any queries, the communication was superb whenever I rang or emailed we always had a quick response. The day went so smoothly and that was due to Katie and the team they went above and beyond for us both and our guests. The food was amazing, all our guests commented on it including how good the canapes were! Circa catered to all our needs and our wedding guests, the day was just perfect and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to all.

Venue of Dreams

Me & my new husband got married at Laughton barns on 01/07/23. From the moment we booked the barn back in ‘October 21’ Sara & the rest of the team have had great communication in making sure everything comes together and we get all the information we need right up until the few days before the wedding. The venue itself is just a dream and there’s so much outside space to make use off!
The food is absolutely outstanding and our guests commented so much on how the food was so amazing and the great portion sizes! Katy & Sean deserve a special mention too for being great when we turned up to set the venue up on the Friday, they went above a beyond to make sure it was how we wanted it to be, also on the day of the wedding they still went above and beyond to make sure we was both looked after very well, checking in on us regularly and making sure everything run smoothly!
So all I want to say is one big massive thank you to Sara, Liv, the catering team, Sean, Katy & everyone else at circa! Our day wouldn’t have been the way it was without these guys

We had the most amazing wedding day! From the very beginning Marc and team went above and beyond in helping us. From about 8 viewings of the barn with various family members and plans on how to use the space to menu ideas and running times!
Nothing was too much trouble. We were given completely free range when it came to decorating the barn. The food was absolutely out of this world - delicious!
The Circa team managed to make all our dreams come true in a calm, friendly and professional way. Thank you.

The best day of our life.....

Our wedding was held in August 2017 and we could not have picked a better venue to have our wedding at or a better team to work with than the Circa team. The venue was perfect for our laid back family gathering style wedding with BBQ food, pizza van, gelato bike and free flowing drinks. One of my favourite moments was looking over the field and seeing our friends and family on both sides playing football and Frisbee. The Circa team were beyond helpful every step of the way and we could not recommend them highly enough!!

The best day of our lives!

How do I even begin to describe Laughton Barns. The most beautiful venue, in the most beautiful location with the most amazing team!
We had the most perfect day and that is down to Liv and her team. The service was impeccable and the food was to die for, we had all of our wedding guests saying it was the best food they had ever had.
We were lucky enough to get married outside and the whole ceremony was faultless thanks to the great organisation by the team.
We had our Reception Drinks outside on the terrace where all of the staff were so friendly and attentive, no one was ever without a drink or canape in their hand!
Then onto the main event, our Wedding Breakfast inside the beautiful barn - It really did look like something out of a magazine and I could not have been happier. We then went on to dance the night away, the DJ was incredible and really got the party going - We did not have an empty dance floor at any point. Completely packed the whole night!

I am a Wedding Coordinator myself so had extremely high expectations for our wedding day and they were exceeded. All of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to which for me was such a compliment and again that is down to Laughton Barns.

I wish we could re-do it over and over again.

Thank you so much!!!

The perfect wedding venue

My wife and I got married at Laughton Barns in May this year. The venue was the most bueatiful setting and the barn looked particularly stunning when expertly decorated by my better half. Circa were fantastic throughout but particularly on the day. Olivia and the team did a wonderful job from start to finish. The waiters/waitresses and bar staff were all professional and friendly. I couldn't finish the review without commenting on the food which was amazing! I would definitely recommend the lebenese grill on the patio for an evening feast! Well done Circa and thanks for a magical day!!

We want to say a massive thank you to the team at circa for helping us organise and provide the perfect wedding!! From day one to the big day circa bent over backwards to help provide us with everything we wanted.

Hey there Marc.

Thanks for getting in touch. Pleased you got the card! We wanted you all to know how great the day was, and how well your team did too.

Nothing seemed too much for them, and they made it all look effortless, which I think is a sign of a great team
Are there any websites we can leave reviews for you guys and/or the venue at all? Or maybe for you're website?

Many thanks,

-Michael & Alice.
