    Awful service during the pandemic

    Maidens Barn were great to start with but as soon as lockdown was announced in March 2020, just before our wedding, they, along with their suppliers were horrible and so unfair to us. All the care and customer service they provided to 'seal the deal' and keep hold of our money, went down the drain. They forced us to postpone our wedding to a date we did not want, refusing outright to refund us our money and also charging us additional for beer that apparently they had purchased. When asked to show us the receipt, the owner, Katherine's response was that it was best i go elsewhere to have our wedding! Isn't it fair to ask for a receipt for something you are charged for? As if having to cancel our wedding wasn't stressful enough, Maiden's Barn, and in particular Katherine and their service providers had made it a living hell for us. After lots of back and forth with the venue, they refunded us our money, however their suppliers refused to do so - which left us with no choice but to postpone with them to December 2020. Come December, situation with Covid doesn't get better and we go through the same malarky again. Managed to get some of our money back but still fighting. Having read CMA and Government guidelines, Maidens Barn, Host Catering, Piano DJ and the florist have all acted unfairly in March and now again in December. CMA guidelines clearly state that if we had to cancel our wedding due to Covid, it is our right to get a full refund including the deposit, but these providers have made their own rules. I have written a formal complaint to CMA but I know this will take time, so I am going public with this. The reason we wanted to cancel in the first place was because of the uncertainty of the situation and we didn't feel comfortable leaving such a huge chunk of our savings with these providers. But they just outright refused and put up a fight to keep OUR money. They have been nothing but unfair and I am going to definitely fight my case. We have the right to demand to get our money back.

    Maidens Barn's reply:

    Dear Lisa
    Your comments have caused us great distress. Nobody would deny that this is a very challenging time for us all and everyone is having to adapt to new ways of doing things and make compromises. When you decided to cancel your wedding back in March, we promptly refunded you monies already paid ( except for the booking deposit ) then you decided you wanted to rebook and so we found a new date for you and reassured you that should your numbers drop because of current restrictions that would not be a problem with us and you would only pay for whatever your final numbers turned out to be. . We gave you a new contract for the new date and were looking forward to hosting your wedding. However some weeks ago you decided once again to cancel your wedding with us. And once again we promptly refunded you the money that you had repaid us. Throughout this whole process we have done our very best to give you what you have asked of us. We would of course have postponed your wedding again if that is what you had wanted. Inevitably there are costs to us in administering all this and therefore it is not unreasonable of us to withold your initial deposit. it is so sad that it has come to this as we all losers in this situation.
    best wishes
    from all of us at Maidens Barn

    So so special

    We can't thank you enough for making our wedding day on Sunday so so special. The whole day ran so smoothly and looked absolutely beautiful.
    We have had various comments from friends about how well it all run and a lot of comments about the Amazing food!
    Thank you to Juliet for being so amazing during our wedding breakfast. She spent the whole time going round to various tables making sure all was okay and everyone was enjoying themselves. Everyone loved the food so thank you so much.
    Elliot was great the whole evening too. Again he ensured it all run smoothly and was always on hand if we needed anything.
