Our perfect wedding

Thank you so much for helping to make our day really special! It was great to have such a stunning venue. The Oxleaze team helped to make our planning easier, and really made sure our day went seamlessly. On the day Kath and Mark were there behind the scenes so we didn’t have to worry about a single thing, and we were able to fully appreciate and enjoy our day! Oxleaze is beautiful and it is clear that they listen to their couples and are continuously making improvements - from big things like the milling barn, which was a fantastic extra space, to smaller things like the firepit. We loved that we were able to choose from Oxleaze’s suppliers list while also having the flexibility to choose our own suppliers which meant that we were able to make our day really personal to us. Thanks again!!! We thoroughly recommend Oxleaze to anyone else searching for their perfect venue.

Incredible venue, brilliant staff,stunning scenary

We had an absolutely incredible wedding day in August at Oxleaze Barn. This is a brilliant venue that looked stunning in the summer. The staff were all so accommodating and made sure the day went to plan, always going above and beyond what we would have expected. The private gardens are stunning and my parents particularly enjoyed walking around them. We couldn’t have asked for anything more from our special day and I would highly recommend this venue to anyone wanting a barn wedding in a lovely countryside setting.

Wedding on 8th September 2018

We held our wedding reception at Oxleaze barn after holding the ceremony at a local church. The team were so helpful, friendly and welcoming and helped made the whole day run so smoothly. The venue is perfect for a group of 100 guests of all ages; and we loved that we could decorate it in our own way and according to our own budget. It's such a stunning venue, you don't' need to add much to have a beautiful wedding day. We particularly liked the garden space, the milling barn for dancing and the traditional beams. We hired the private gardens for photos which we would really recommend for a beautiful backdrop for bride and groom photos. A wonderful venue and wonderful team.

Our beautiful wedding

We recently had our wedding at Oxleaze Barn and couldn't recommend it highly enough.
The staff are warm and welcoming and could not do enough to help. They were on hand from the moment we booked the date to the day itself. Kath play a large part in ensuring the smooth running of our day without knowing she was there!
The venue is stunning, the barns have been brought to life and yet not spoilt, offering a truly rustic experience. This was appreciated and spoken about by a large number of our guest and helped to create a fantastic memory.

Perfect wedding venue

We held our entire wedding (ceremony and reception) at Oxleaze Barn in July 2018. In our 50's... Determined not to make an 'industry' out of wedding planning it was the only venue we viewed and we knew it was perfect from the start.
The barn is light and airy but cool so our guests were comfortable in the summer heat. The space is flexible so weddings can be held in or outside - on our day the weather was changable but Katherine was flexible about waiting to the very last minute so we could marry outside.
The enclosed grounds are perfect for drinks, children's games & we had a fish & chip van in the evening that went down a storm. The marsh mallows toasting on the firepit was also a hit.
The addition of the milling barn was perfect for evening dancing, with space in the main barn for people to sit down.and have some quiet time if they chose to.
We didn't do much decorating as the barn is beautiful as it is. We just had bunting and fresh flowers and the simple. Shabby chic look worked brilliantly.
The staff at the watering hole did a great job and were efficient and professional along with being friendly to all our guests. The flexibility of using any outside caterer was also a benefit.
Being able to stay at the Stable cottage was so lovely and convenient - it really was the icing on the cake.
So if you are looking for a fexible, beautiful space in the Cotswolds to get married in, with a team who are invested in.doing everything they can to ensure your day is perfect I would highly recommend Oxleaze Barn.

A massive thanks...

Just wanted to say a massive thanks for all of your help in making our wedding such a great day.

From all the questions we asked to all the help on set up (removing curtains, helping with table set up, mowing the grass etc), it all meant that our planning process was so much smoother.

Then on the actual day, the help from Katharine was invaluable, thank you so much. You made sure we had less to think about and it just seemed like you had everything under control from meeting the band, ensuring the aisle was all set up to making sure everyone was out the toilets for the speeches. You did so many little things that we didn’t even think about. Our wedding day couldn’t have gone any better and everyone loved the day and you helped make sure it was a success.

In terms of the venue, it looked incredible in the sunshine. We are so happy that we picked it and it looked unbelievably good on the day. Many people commented that it was like being somewhere abroad and you know that’s always a compliment! We couldn’t be happier with how the day went and are so glad that we chose Oxleaze barn.
Thanks again

Truly amazing venue

Just wanted to send this message to say thank you to you and Katherine for all of your hard work in making sam and kevs wedding reception perfect

The barn and the grounds are truly amazing and from the moment I actually came to see it on the Friday before the wedding I could see why they had fallen in love with it. It really is a beautiful barn and the grounds are stunning.
Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for either of you. Katherine I just wanted to say thank you for putting a bollard where my disabled husband was parked so that when we returned we were able to park as close to the gate as possible.
I am sure you will have plenty more weddings at the barn and hope they all enjoy oxleaze as much as we did.
With thanks

A big thank you

I just wanted to say a big thank you from me and Joe (or should I say, my husband and I!) for such an amazing wedding. We really appreciate all of the extra help on the day that made sure that it ran so smoothly. We would definitely recommend you as a venue, and had many compliments on such a beautiful setting. Who knows, maybe we will be back for our 10 year anniversary!

The most incredible day

We had the most incredible, unforgettable day and couldn't have asked for more. The venue was stunning and met all our expectations. We had so much fun setting up the venue and our wedding day was perfect. I had lots of ideas in my head of how I wanted it to look and it really all did surpass that! The tables as well were so beautifully made and we felt very lucky to have them. Kath and Richard were so helpful with setting up and keeping everything running so smoothly, the caterers also commented on how helpful and lovely you both were! We can't say thank you enough really! x

We knew the minute we first saw Oxleaze Barn that it was perfect. We very much enjoyed all our visits to the farm and are sad we no longer have a reason to go!
