The barn is licenced to hold civil weddings and partnerships and can accommodate up to 100 seated guests. The venue comprises the barn complete with handmade Italian chandeliers, specially commissioned for Odo's Barn. A rustic bar area within the barn and a large south-facing terrace that can accommodate 100 guests offer stunning surroundings. The acoustics in the barn is perfect for bands or DJs, and lighting can be dimmed to create a wonderful atmosphere for the evening reception.

Best day ever!

I cannot begin to explain how wonderful Charlotte and the team are - from our first viewing where Charlotte provided so much information and really understood our vision, to our wedding day, which went perfectly. Odo’s barn is the perfect venue, it’s gorgeous, everything about your wedding is customisable and the 3 day hire makes the whole set up a breeze! We cannot thank Charlotte and the team enough, they really go above and beyond to make your dreams a reality and the personal relationship you build with the venue makes the whole day so personal and meaningful. We had the best, most magical day of our lives and that’s reflected in our photos - the setting is stunning and we feel so lucky to have found such a special venue and people to host our wedding day.

The most magical day

From the moment we visited Odo's to the day after our wedding, Charlotte and the team looked after us completely and made us feel like we were in very safe hands. From the recommendations on planning, help finding suppliers and keeping our drinks topped up (to help our nerves...) everything was seamless and it couldn't have gone smoother. We truly had a perfect wedding and many of our guests said it was the most beautiful wedding they've ever been to!

We feel like they went above and beyond to look after us, and never at any point did we feel like things weren't going exactly as planned.

We would wholeheartedly recommend Charlotte and Odo's Barn!

Just the most perfect day!

Tim and I couldn't recommend Odo's Barn more highly as a wedding venue. Obviously the barn and its surroundings are beautiful but Charlotte is fantastic - she helped us plan our day and made sure everything ran smoothly. She was so kind and helpful and thought of everything! We and our guests had the most wonderful time and wish we could get married here all over again.

The most perfect wedding venue!

This venue is something out of a fairytale! Charlotte and her team are just brilliant, wonderful and we felt so looked after, not only throughout the process but on the actual day. Loved how we could set up and practice the day before, it made us so much more relaxed for the big day. Our special day was absolutely perfect… we want to do it all again!!! Cannot recommend this venue enough!

**Absolutely Incredible!!!**

We really can’t put into words just how incredible Charlotte and her team were and just how beautiful the venue is.

From the first initial meet and showing of the venue right to the last detail, Charlotte has positively outshined anything we expected.

To be very honest, we only looked at Odo’s Barn for our 10 year Vowel Renewal and from then it was very clear that nothing else even compared.

Charlotte was on hand for ANYTHING we needed/requested and she made none of our questions sound silly!

The actual day of our Vowel Renewal came and went so quickly, but the whole time I felt Charlotte knew my vision and the work she and her team put in on that day, Paul and I will forever be grateful for!

The Barn looked just stunning! Exactly how we are envisioned it-No actually it was better than we envisioned it!!

For anyone thinking of choosing Odo’s Barn for their Big Day-just do it! You will love every moment as we did and it just went so smoothly.

Paul and I would love to say from the bottom of our hearts thank you to Charlotte and the Odo’s Barn team for genuinely making the day and experience one we will ever forget. Such fantastic memories we will treasure always.

Our guests are still talking about it to this day!

Can’t wait for the photos be come back so we can share them with Charlotte & Imi!

With all our Love,

Marilyn & Paul Francomb xxx

The most perfect day…

We could not fault Odo’s Barn… They are an amazing bunch of people who worked so hard to make our day so perfect. The views, the gardens and the barn it’s self was just so beautiful.

We were due to get married in 2021 but for obvious reasons we had to sadly postpone, but this was such an easy problem to solve and we couldn’t be more grateful.

Massive shout out to Charlotte, we couldn’t have done it with out you… Thank you for making our day so special!!!

Perfect venue!

We loved our wedding day at Odo’s Barn, it was everything we could have hoped for. It’s such a beautiful venue & Charlotte really went above and beyond to help plan the perfect day. Everything ran so smoothly! All of the staff were so lovely too, professional and friendly. So many of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was and how lovely the staff were. We really loved how you could personalise the barn and make it your own. A dream day, thank you so much. Lucy & Joe xx

Excellent - Stunning building & location, with very supportive owners

A stunning historic barn in a beautiful & peaceful location overlooking the Romney Marshes. We had a wonderful day - ceremony, reception drinks, sit-down-meal, DJ - that was exactly as we had hoped. Charlotte & Robert were hugely helpful with recommendations & advice, and very supportive through Covid-related postponements - a very "can-do" attitude.

Best Day Ever!

We had the absolute pleasure of getting married at Odo's last week, the only venue we considered, once we visited for the first time there was honestly nowhere else in the running! Charlotte and her team are amazing, everything ran so smoothly in the lead up and on the day itself, we cannot thank you enough, our day was truly perfect! The barn and the grounds are beautiful, you feel as if you are in the heart if the countryside, but with the convenience of Ashford town centre only 10 minutes up the road for hotels and trains etc.
We are still looking through all of our photos but have shared a few with this review, cannot wait to see and share more as they come in.
Thank you again Charlotte, and for anyone reading this thinking about Odo's as a venue for their celebration, go for it, you will not be disappointed! Alice & Charlie

Mr and Mrs Austin

For us, Odo's Barn was unforgettable the first time we saw it. It immediately felt like the venue for us. Throughout our whole wedding process, before and after, Charlotte and her family made us feel valued, unique and special. Charlotte was extremely helpful during the planning, and offered different suggestions that suited our theme. Our wedding day was perfect! We were very well looked after, and loved every second.

Perfect wedding venue

Odo's barn was our venue for our wedding March 2024. It is a beautiful venue and perfectly fitted our rustic vibe, the grounds surrounding are also lovely, perfect for any outdoor photos or wedding ceremony too. Beautiful decor available already which we could add our own touch too where we were able to set up the day before relieving any on the day stress and take down the day after. We loved the included fairly light wall, sofa seating, large terraced area for our drinks reception and firepit for marshmallows in the late evening. The acoustics of the barn were fantastic for live music of which we had a cellist for the day and band for the evening.

All of our guests loved the venue and there were endless compliments from everyone.

Charlotte was fantastic in organising our special day. She was super professional and communicative to all our needs and questions prior to our wedding and was the most fabulous host on the day. Very organised, and took all the stress out of our busy day by her and her teams attentiveness to our and guests needs, she coordinated with all our other vendors and we feel privileged to have had our wedding here.

Magical winter wedding at Odo's

My husband and I got married here in December 2023 and wow what a beautiful venue for a winter wedding!! The barn is truly magical, big enough for 100 guests but with an equally cosy vibe. Charlotte was amazing from start to finish, helping with all the details in the lead up to and on the day. Nothing was too much trouble, even the 90 baby Guinness' that were served at the end of our speeches! Her team of staff were so attentive to all the guests and the day went so smoothly. We were able to relax and enjoy the day without worrying about anything which was all down to Charlotte. We could not recommend Odo's highly enough and want to say a massive thank you for making our day so special. Hannah and Callum xxx
