    The perfect day

    We knew Old Luxters was the venue from us when we visited it for a tasting tour, a few years later they really didn't disappoint! We had an amazing wedding day with them that went off without a hitch. Charlie answered our questions ahead of the big day and helped us make our plans; the team on the day were brilliant and we received a number of comments from our guests on just how professional and helpful they all were as they moved us seamlessly from barn to marquee and in between each part of the day. They really put us and our guests at ease.

    The food and DJ, both provided in the package, also went down really well.

    All in all we had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend Old Luxters for a wedding.

    Faultless, classy and personal

    Can't speak more highly of Luxters. Lucie and the team were perfect throughout. Venue was intimate, high end and yet good value for what we paid. Honestly, if you're even contemplating Luxters then just go with them, they are great!

    The most incredible day!

    Luxters was the most wonderful venue for our wedding day that we could ever have dreamed of. The team were so supportive and encouraging at every stage of the planning process - they took out all the stress of the lead up to the day and made it all so much fun! The day itself was absolutely magical - the team couldn't have done more to make everything perfect for us and our guests. It was such a stunning and intimate space to celebrate with all our friends and family and couldn't have felt more special. The food was tailored to exactly what we were after and was absolutely exceptional - a lot of our guests said it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding. It was so wonderful to take advantage of the various beautiful spaces around the site such as the courtyard, marquee, garden and barn, and the vineyard was an absolutely stunning place to take photographs. We couldn't have been more thrilled with our incredible day - thank you so much amazing Luxters team!

    Incredible wedding venue

    We were married at Old Luxters Barn last week, and it was the most amazing day. Old Luxters is absolutely beautiful, a wonderfully charming old barn, lit up by twinkling fairly lights. The staff at Luxters are fantastic, always there to help. Big thank you to Charlie for the help moving the wedding umpteen times due to Covid! Every question I had they answered, and put together the most magical day. The food and drink was exceptional. The vineyard is stunning for photographs! Many guests commented that it was the best wedding they had been to. I wish we could go back and do it all over again! Thank you Old Luxters Team!

    The most perfect day

    We had such a perfect wedding day. Firstly, our wedding was postponed a year due to Covid and the team at Old Luxters made the process as smooth and pain free as possible given it was a very emotional experience. As the wedding got closer again, we had a planning meeting with Charlie who is absolutely lovely and so helpful, everything we wanted we could make happen, which meant the day could be super personal. They also were happy to make changes and add things right up until the couple of weeks before the wedding, which was great. The day was perfect, it was so well organised and the staff were wonderful and friendly. Everything flowed so well, we had the wedding in the garden then moved into the courtyard for the drinks, then into the barn for dinner then back out to the marquee for post dinner drinks and the barn for the rest of the evening. It was so great to have all these different areas for our use and really kept the party going. The food was delicious and we could tailor the menu to exactly what we wanted. And it was amazing to be able to stumble into the farmhouse to stay at the end of the night! Every guest we have spoken to really loved the venue and we just had the best day. We would 100% recommend the venue to anyone planning their big day and thank you so much to the amazing team at Old Luxters!!

    Beautiful venue with rustic charm

    Old Luxters Barn helped us produce the wedding day of our dreams. The planning process was relatively stress free as they assign you a wedding planner who helps you achieve the look and ideas you want, staying updated with a function file which is transferred back and forth. The food was one of the most important things to us. We wanted a bespoke menu of dishes that we have enjoyed as a couple whilst travelling- nothing that was on the sample menus! Our wedding planner told us that it was possible and arranged it with the chef, it turned out to be better than our expectations and many of guests said it was the best wedding food they'd had.
    The day itself went extremely smoothly, we were very impressed with the waiting staff who were very professional and attentive. The venue is absolutely stunning, it was so nice to have the garden, tipi and barn to enjoy throughout the day. We managed to get some lovely pictures at the view point and in the vineyard.
    Only slight negatives we experienced were 1) change in wedding planner part way through, we felt some things weren't handed over very well. 2) We felt it slightly cheeky to have to pay for a food tasting (>£100pp) when you're spending so much already on the food.
    We're so pleased we decided to have our wedding a Old Luxter's barn, we wouldn't change anything about our day and wholly recommend it to other couples.

    The Perfect Day

    Planning a wedding in the midst of a pandemic could have been a major headache but the staff at Old Luxters made it all seem so easy and stress-free. They have so much to offer including excellent catering and drinks options, a DJ and even loads of different decor options for hire. They were always to happy to help, answering questions or seeking out items to hire for us promptly. The venue itself is truly remarkable even without the wedding decorations everywhere and there were so many beautiful spots to have photos taken. On the day, the staff set up all of our decorations exactly as we had hoped and it really did look exquisite. They coordinated the everything so well, it felt smooth and seamless and we felt really well looked after, allowing us to just enjoy our special day! We cannot thank the team at Old Luxters enough for everything they did to help us have the most amazing day of our lives!

    Fantastic wedding day

    We had the most amazing day at Old Luxters Barn. Charlie and the team were flexible with us when we had to move our date due to COVID and were accommodating with the ideas we had. The day went smoothly, the venue was set up with all our decorations just how we wanted, the food was fantastic and it was great to be able to stay at the farmhouse the night of the wedding. Thanks to the team for the extra touches and help making it our perfect day!

    Amazing place

    We had our wedding through this strange time and luxters were so lovely and made my wedding ceremony so beautiful, and it didn’t feel Covidy. They were so helpful and accommodating all the way through, I couldn’t recommend them more. We fell in love with the barn as soon as we visited it, it’s absolutely stunning. The whole team are so lovely and helpful.

    Beautiful venue - great team, great food!

    As soon as we walked in, we knew it was the venue for us: the setting is lovely, the team are incredibly organised, and so flexible to whatever you want to do. They have lots of different add-ons to make the day fun for your guests - we had wine tasting! They really took the stress out of the whole day, the food was amazing, they had dressed the barn beautifully and the marquee was great (considering it rained all day)! I really cannot rate them highly enough!

    Cancelling your wedding 30 days before your big day!

    When you prepare your wedding day, you dream about your fairy tale sort of day. You think of all the little details that would make a difference:
    your decorations, your drinks, your food, making your guests confortable and happy.

    When you choose a wedding venue, you expect they will listen to you and to what you desire for your big day. You think they will be there every step of the way to help you.

    Unfortunately, at Old Luxters Barn, It didn’t happen that way for me. From day one I had to plan my wedding on my own. I did have a few meetings but never with the same person as they tend not to be able to keep their staff.
    Be ready to be asked to fill in a very long document not compatible with your apple computer!

    What interests them is not your happiness and making your day wonderful, but your money! How much will they get from you.
    A few exemples: you will be given a long list of extras such as lights, furniture, etc…

    Bride, if you wish to get dressed on site in the morning, be ready to pay extra when you already have paid for your accommodation

    When eventually you have prepared everything yourself, during your last meeting 30 days before your big day they will throw a tantrum (because they don’t get enough money from you) and just cancel your dream day and break your heart

    You will have to contact all your suppliers, family and friends and tell everyone your wedding day is postponed because your venue has cancelled on you at such short notice it is impossible to rearrange all your plans on time.

    Just one advice: find another venue!

    Victoria and Jason

    We had a truly beautiful, magical wedding reception at Luxters Barn. The atmosphere was warm and cosy with lots of twinkly lights which was perfect for my Christmas wedding. The staff were amazing and really understood what I wanted and made the barn look so special. I would highly recommend this venue.

    A magical wedding venue!

    The first time we saw Old Luxters Barn we knew it was something special. We immediately fell in love with the quirky vineyard and beautifully rustic barn and were lucky enough to get married in the garden this summer (despite a little rain!). We had the most amazing day and were incredibly impressed by how sleek, efficient and helpful the staff were and our operations manager Annabel was excellent. Nothing was too much to ask and she went out of her way to make sure everything went to plan. Being big foodies, we also loved how we were able to personally handpick the recipes for the chef to create for our wedding breakfast, which made the day even more personal to us. Many of our guests even commented that it was the best food they ever had at a wedding! So a big kudos to the chef. All in all, we would 100% recommend Old Luxters for any occasion and cannot wait to pop in again to relive the memories. Thank you everyone!
