Riverside Barns is a rustic wedding venue nestled in the countryside of Saffron Walden, Essex. Offering three gorgeous tipis for semi-covered outdoor occasions, couples can host their dream bohemian celebration here. If you're seeking a stunning lakeside setting for your special day, this venue has everything you need for a memorable event.

Facilities and Capacity

Riverside Barns' tipis offer the perfect atmosphere for all kinds of weddings. You can exclusively use the tipi tents and private grounds adjoining the lake, ensuring the utmost privacy on your day. The fabulous 1960s double-decker bus can be included in any booking, serving as the perfect area to escape and relax. Should your guests or festivities require even more room, the large field is ideal for an outdoor cinema, lawn games, and inflatable-based activities. During your stay, wander the verdant grounds with trees and flora and capture timeless wedding photos by the lake.
