We got everything we wanted and more!

Thank you so much for hosting the best day of our lives (so far!). All of our guests have already said how much they enjoyed every minute – the sun was shining (a miracle!), and we even got to play our beloved cricket on the meadow.
Thank you and your teams for all the hard work, dedication and flexibility in making our vision a reality. We will truly never forget it.

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.

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.

We had a lovely, relaxed wedding day and our guest

We recently got married at Monkton Barn and it was the perfect venue for us. We had no idea how to organise a wedding and having Peter involved from the start was a blessing. He really helped keep us relaxed and not sweat the small stuff. We had a lovely, relaxed wedding day and our guests had a fantastic time. We truly couldn't have wished for more.
Peter, Mel and team THANK YOU xx

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.

We had our wedding reception at Monkton Barn in Se

From our first visit we were convinced this was the place for us and looked nowhere else
We loved our planning parties with Peter and found the whole experience perfect.
We got to incorporate loads of our own ideas and make lots of decorations, making the venue truly personal!
We cannot fault Monkton Barn and truly recommend it!
Our guests all loved the venue and location! A massive thank you to all who made our ‘vision’ come to life!
Our wedding was incredible (even if we do say so ourselves!)

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 x

relaxed atmosphere and the beautiful surroundings

We arranged our wedding at Monkton Barn for April 2014 and truly could not fault one thing from start to finish at this venue. From the very first visit meeting the host of Monkton Barn we found him extremely helpful and welcoming he helped us to tailor make our Wedding Day advising us on all the Trades people that had been used before at the venue with a very detailed folder of phone numbers etc always listening to our requirements and helping us to make decisions for our Big Day.

Our wedding pictures captured the relaxed atmosphere and the beautiful surroundings and we were very sad when our day came to an end we would love to do it all over again at Monkton Barn.

perfect for our vintage spring wedding!

We had our Wedding at Monkton Barn on Saturday 23rd May 2015 and we cannot recommend Peter and the venue highly enough. We had our ceremony in the beautiful meadow and had our reception in the barn along with a lovely capri marquee we hired from one of Peter's suppliers.

All of the suppliers recommended to us by Peter we brilliant. All very helpful and very reasonably priced. Our marquee, chairs, tables etc were hired from GEMS and were great. Our celebrant was Elspeth Thomson (who we loved and who everyone said was so lovely, well spoken and professional) Our hog roast, all day drinks, all evening food and the bar in the evening were supplied by Peter himself and Mel at Youbar. Everyone commented on how lovely the food was (especially the hog roast, late night pizzas and cheese tower buffet), how efficient the bar was and how varied and reasonably priced the drinks were.

Peter himself is a delight. He is kind, genial and nothing is too much trouble. Peter put our minds at ease throughout the whole process and the planning parties are such fun! He himself made sure that our big day ran smoothly and it was a pleasure to have him there. He was very flexible about where we could use and if we could move stuff around. He also was a great help the day before and after when it came to setting up and clearing up.

The venue itself is beyond stunning - it really was picturesque and perfect for our vintage spring wedding!

We honestly can’t thank Peter enough for helping to make our Wedding Day so so special – it really was the best day of our lives. So thank you again a million times.

It could not have been more perfect

An unequivocal 5 stars. We've just had a not-wedding at the barn and in the meadow, and it could not have been more perfect. Perfect weather, perfect meadow, perfect barn, and the most congenial and efficient of hosts. That was on the day - in the months leading up to it, Peter offered superb advice and support (without ever being judgemental to our rather eccentric party requirements, or constraining in what we wanted to do) and offered from a huge range of suppliers, helping us to chose the most perfect mix for our requirements.??I cannot recommend either the location, or the host highly enough, and we are already wondering when we can do the same again (a not-wedding anniversary?)

The most beautiful location

We got married here in May and it was the most beautiful location. The meadows, the courtyard, the barn. All perfect. And Peter helped make everything run so smoothly. He also recommended so many great suppliers whom we used. I'd highly recommend the location for a wedding or any party.

Fully flexible to our needs

We had the reception to our wedding at Monkton barn in May 2016- it was the perfect location for us. Fully flexible to our needs, held 150 seated guests (with a small marquee extension). In a great location for guests to get to, and Peter is so helpful and organised, he made planning the day so much fun and completely stress free! Would highly recommend Monkton Barn and all the suppliers they use, particularly Feast who did our food on the day.
