    Beautiful unique venue.

    We were one the first weddings to take place at the old gore barn and booked only 6 weeks before the wedding day. Our wedding was previously cancelled abroad due to covid and had experienced so much stress along the way. When we finally booked the old gore everything got so much easier. The team were fantastic, so friendly and helpful, they made it so easy for us. I actually started to enjoy wedding planning again. The venue itself was exactly what I was looking for, a slightly more relaxed, less traditional wedding in a beautiful setting. Everything about the venue is stunning, we had so many compliments about how beautiful the venue was. For food we had tacos with all the extras and burgers on the evening, which were amazing. Our guests loved the fire pits in the evening, which we toasted smores on. I honestly couldn't complain about one thing, I would recommend the barn to anyone looking for something similar.

    The most stunning wedding venue

    We cannot recommend Old Gore and the team highly enough.

    We got engaged in lockdown 2 (November 2020) and thought there would be no way we would find a venue available for 2021 but to our surprise we came across the newly launched Yard Space website with a CGI video of an upcoming wedding barn. By the second week of December we had visited the then derelict barn and booked for September 2021. The team had such vision and the relaxed street food concept sounded perfect as we wanted an epic reception (we got legally married privately a couple of days before the big day) in a beautiful surrounding. At this point we couldn’t have even imagined how beautiful it would be so we are so glad we put our faith in the team.

    The team are amazing and completely committed to their couples. In the run we obviously needed a lot of reassurance about the build and visited a few times to see progress but they were always so welcoming and catered to any needs we wanted for the day. A particularly big thank you to Arabella & Clayton who were so supportive and kind.

    We were the third wedding, day 7 of Old Gore being open, and we honestly cannot put in to words how fantastic the day was. All our guests could not stop saying how magical the venue was and also there were so many compliments for the staff. We completely agree as every staff member would do anything for us and they were all so friendly, including the staff behind the scenes as well, particularly the chefs as the food was incredible. The canapés were unique (the brisket nuggets a particular hit) and for the sit down meal we had a pizza and barbeque spatchcock chicken feast to fit with our more relaxed vibe. The bar certainly got a lot of action and the guests loved (maybe a bit too much!) the wide selection of drinks available including very yummy cocktails!

    Thank you again to the whole team. This wedding venue is perfect and going to be a huge success! And we hope we get to visit again soon as it has such amazing memories for us.

    Old Gore Barn's reply:

    Hi Kim & Adam,

    Thank you so much for your lovely review! It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of your big day and we're so glad the risk paid off.

    Hopefully see you both at one of the pubs in the near future.

    Kind regards,
    Arabella & The Old Gore Team

    Perfect relaxed wedding

    We found Old Gore just 6 weeks before our wedding date. Due to travel restrictions we were unable to go abroad for our planned wedding and had the added stress of finding and organising a wedding in under 6 weeks.
    Clayton and the team were fantastic and reassured us that we would still have the perfect wedding day. This could not have been more true. The team were very flexible and worked with us to ensure we had what we wanted. They never pressured us for payments or information and the whole planning experience was so smooth.
    The venue itself is simply stunning, plenty of space and has a more relaxed feel than more traditional wedding venues which was perfect for what we wanted. We had so many compliments from our guests on how beautiful the venue setting was, the fire pits were a particular hit in the evening where we were able to toast marshmallows!
    The food and service from the team was outstanding, they couldn’t have been more accommodating to us and our guests throughout the day. After the ceremony we had canopies which matched the quality of our main meal where we opted for their famous wood fired pizzas. The karaage chicken and beef brisket canopies were the definite favourites!
    I couldn’t recommend Old Gore enough if you’re looking for a barn style wedding.

    The perfect venue!

    We were the 2nd ever wedding to take place at Old Gore Barn, booking around a year before - so it was very much still in the building stage when we booked!!
    Our wedding was at another venue, but postponed numerous times due to COVID and then it was having legal difficulties so we decided to change venues. We experienced a lot of stress along the way!
    Booking with Old Gore Barn was the best decision we made! It was so easy - we were kept up to date regularly with how the building work was going, were able to view it as much as we wanted and the team got back to us with any questions quickly. It ended up getting us excited about our wedding again!
    On the day, you wouldn't have guessed that we were only their 2nd wedding! The team were fantastic, friendly and made sure that everything was how we wanted.
    We have had so so many people telling us how amazing and beautiful the venue was. It was completely what we wanted, relaxed but gorgeous!
    We went for the Asado lamb for food. We had a couple of guests that wouldn't eat Lamb, so Old Gore were very accommodating and cooked chicken for them instead (even 1 burger for one of the kids!) Honestly, everyone keeps saying how the food was the best wedding food they had!
    It was honestly the best day, and I couldn't have imagined having it anywhere else now. It was perfect! A few of our guests have recommended it to their friends - and I would without a doubt, recommend this venue to anyone!
