More than a wedding venue
We were blown away by Monkton barn and Peter on our first viewing! It was such an incredible space that enabled us to really make our day our own. In the run up to the day itself, Peter was available for planning "parties" which were a true highlight of our wedding preparation and always sparked such brilliant ideas. He was incredible in helping to navigate the torrential rain the week of our wedding and created lots of plan Bs should we need them. This was hugely appreciated and felt like a true partnership.Sent on 25/06/2020
We split our day between the meadow for the drinks reception and wedding breakfast and then hosted the evening inside the barn. This meant we could create a real difference between night and day and no need to worry about change over times etc. The meadow has stunning views and is an incredible space to really let your hair down and celebrate with everyone. The courtyard and barn were perfect for the evening, plenty of room for the band, drinks, dancing and best of all a fire for drunken marshmallows.
Monkton barn really was the perfect space for our wedding day and a place that will always hold very fond memories.
Monkton Barn's reply:What wonderful, kind words. Thank you so much for your enthusiastic comments Kate. It was truly a pleasure to host your wedding with us at Monkton Barn.

My dream wedding happened at Monkton Barn this Jul
Thank you so much to Peter and all the other companies involved, who he personally recommended, for helping us pull it all together. The Barn was full to the brim with our friends and family for our ceremony and beautiful views made the slightly rainy day on the meadow picture perfect (thanks to Wendy!). Two months later and guests are still raving about how the day was just so 'us'. All the best to future Monkton Brides and Grooms xSent on 03/04/2018

What a perfect location...
My daughter held her wedding reception here on June 17th 2017. What a perfect location. The views are spectacular from the meadow. We had the run of both meadows (plenty of space for bouncy castle, cricket match, welly wanging and much more). We were able to decorate the marquee and grounds as we wanted and staff were on hand to help. Caterers fab. Peter was most accommodating and wants his guests to have a great time. Thoroughly recommend this wonderful venue.Sent on 03/04/2018
