Absolutely fantastic.

We cannot recommend Rivervale Barn enough, our wedding was everything we could have ever wished for and more!

Lyndsay our wedding coordinator / planner was absolutely fantastic. So friendly and welcoming and really made us feel at ease with all the planning. Our meetings with her at the venue were very helpful and she always replied to our emails, she went above and beyond - we appreciate it so much!

Our first visit to Rivervale Barn was actually virtual due to the lockdown. The staff did an excellent job at showing us around virtual and giving us lots of information.

We finally got to view the venue and it is absolutely stunning. The barn looks gorgeous surrounded by the most beautiful gardens. We also had a blast at our tasting event. The venue was dressed like a wedding reception and it gave us a little taster to how our day would be.

Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. Lyndsay ensured the day ran smoothly and was very efficient. All the staff and catering team were attentive. It was a lovely touch to have a glass of iced water and some tissues as we waited outside the ceremony.

The food was absolutely delicious and we have had so much positive feedback from our guests regarding the food.

Thank you so much to Lyndsay and the rest of the team at Rivervale Barn. You helped us so much to have the most special day. ❤️

Best day ever!

This venue was simply stunning for our wedding! The team were all really accommodating and easy to contact throughout. We could not have asked for more from a wedding venue - breathtaking and such a good space with a bar on the dancefloor to keep everyone together! We had the most amazing day and I would recommend Rivervale Barn to anyone!

Just wow - like omg wow

Where to start - it was amazing. The venue, the catering, the venue staff... everything leading up to, and on the day was just done with expertise that you'll only get from a dedicated venue and team like that at Rivervale Barn. Our every need was dealt with before we knew it, and the planning leading up to the day working with our liason (shout out to you Brandon!) was intergral to our perfect wedding day.

Can we do it again?

We both fell in love with Rivervale Barn the moment we drove down its beautiful driveway and walked through the door. Its been 6 weeks since our magical day and we still have guests telling us about how perfect it was, they were big fans of the Sangria!! The barn and gardens are breath taking, making it perfect for our photos and video. The suppliers we used were all from their recommended suppliers, which were all exemplary. A big thank you to our wedding coordinator Ellie, she was so helpful and attentive throughout the planning process and our day!! We used their gorgeous beauty room with Rivervale Beauty doing mine, 7 bridesmaids, flower girl and mums hair/make up...their work is beautiful! I also want to shout out and say a massive thank you to the lady who ensured me and Dan had some canapes and sangria during our photos, checked up on us throughout the day and saw I was sitting on table 8 when the dessert came out so she brought it over to me. Honestly, she made us feel so special and went above and beyond. Thank you

Magical Wedding at Rivervale Barn

Rivervale Barn is an extraordinary wedding venue. If you are looking to have an outside wedding or a barn wedding where venue and reception space are in the same place this is a perfect venue for you. We got married in the beautiful outside space called The Spinney which was wonderful and something I could have only imagined in my dreams so it was special to actually get married outside. The entire experience from viewing the venue to the wedding day itself was fantastic. The events and catering team are phenomenal and went above and beyond to ensure our small wedding went off without a hitch. The food for our wedding breakfast was delicious and we received lots of compliments on the food. There is a honeymoon cottage onsite which we stayed in on our wedding night, which again is beautifully decorated and very spacious. I honestly cannot thank the events and catering team enough and never will be able to express how amazing each and every one of them were. Thank you for helping us kick off our married life with a bang. We are forever thankful!

Dream Wedding Venue

We cannot fault this venue and the team at Rivervale Barn! We got married in March 2023 and we had the most perfect day. From the moment we registered to view the venue, the team could not have been more helpful. Natasha was our coordinator and she is brilliant; she answered our endless questions quickly and nothing was too much trouble. She checked on us throughout the day and made sure we had everything we needed. On the day, everything went so smoothly and the team made it stress free which is what you want on your wedding . The venue itself is absolutely stunning, it’s great value for money and the food is incredible. The cottage is so perfect and the pamper room is a little added touch which makes the day even more special. The way the venue is laid out means the flow of the day is really good and our guests all said how amazing the day was. It’s a romantic setting, with a beautiful garden and courtyard and is just the most perfect venue for your wedding. The entire team at Rivervale are brilliant and so friendly &professional. Cannot recommend enough!

Absolutely magical

Rivervale Barn is an incredibly beautiful venue, with lots of trees and nature surrounding it. We had issue with our original venue due to covid and we're so thankful for that as Rivervale Barn is beyond perfect. Natasha and the team have been absolutely incredible and we wouldn't have been able to plan the day so smoothly without them! We're hoping we can come back again some time as guests 🤞

The most amazing venue!

We got married at Rivervale Barn a week ago and are still on Cloud 9 after such a wonderful day. From the moment we first stepped into the barn three years ago where we met our wedding planner, Sophie, to the wedding day itself, nothing was too much trouble. Sophie was always positive, supportive (particularly when we had to postpone twice), knowledgeable, calm and so incredibly efficient. We knew our day would be perfect from the way Sophie had handled everything from the moment we met, but our day exceeded our expectations hugely. Our guests couldn't have been more complimentary about the venue, the gardens, the food, the service and the fact that every single tiny detail was thought about by Sophie and the team. We didn't have to think of anything on the day because it had been handled. We couldn't recommend Rivervale Barn and the team more for making our day stress-free, fun, and simply perfect.

We can't thank Sophie and the team enough for helping us to have our dream day, and for bearing with us through postponements and many questions. We cannot recommend the venue more highly!

The perfect day

Where to begin!? We booked Rivervale Barn back in January of 2019, having no idea what was going to happen in the coming years! We were due to get married in October 2020 but had to postpone it 3 times, each time they were so helpful in getting our date moved. We had several planning meetings before the day to ensure everything went just the way we wanted it! When our day finally came in January 2022, it was truly amazing, everything we could have hoped for and more. Truly the most stunning venue. Ash was absolutely brilliant, he knew exactly what we wanted and pretty much set up the venue single handedly so we could focus on getting ready. We couldn't have asked for anyone better! So thank you to Ash and to everyone at the barn, it was perfect.

Amazing wedding venue!

Rivervale Barn was the perfect venue for our wedding. The barn and gardens were so beautiful, and made every photo look amazing! The staff at Rivervale Barn were brilliant. Very friendly and made the day itself run so smoothly. Special thanks to Brandon who helped us organise our day - without all your support and guidance it would not have been the same! Would highly recommend.

The best day ever!!

If I could give Rivervale Barn 10 stars, I would!!

As soon as we first saw the venue, we fell in love with it and knew this was where we wanted to get married. From start to finish, the team have been fantastic and have been there every step of the way.

On the actual day, I didn’t have to think once about what I needed to do or where to go. The team were already there, holding my train whilst leaving the pamper room, ensuring we got some of our canapés and even having a tissue and glass of water ready before I walked down the aisle! It sounds like such small things but they honestly made the day run so smoothly and will always be something I remember!

You will not regret booking Rivervale as your wedding venue - I wish we could do it all again!!

The wedding venue of dreams!

Honestly from the beginning of our wedding planning journey to the end they have been amazing. From the minute we were shown around the venue we were made to feel so welcome and special. We had the wonderful Natasha as our wedding coordinator and she was incredible. Throughout the whole planning stage Natasha has been so helpful and understanding. On the wedding day Natasha was all you could have wanted from a wedding coordinator, she allowed the day to run so smoothly and we had no worries at all. She took such a huge weight of our minds on the big day.

Rivervale Barn is the venue of all venues!

My sister is in a wheelchair and this venue is so accessible - my sister felt fully independent and had enough space to move around freely.

I had so many compliments on our wedding day about how beautiful it was! I honestly could not recommend this venue anymore!! Thank you Natasha and team! 🧡

Absolutely no faults, highly recommend

We had our wedding here on 16th February this year and it was honestly so magical. The staff are amazing and I honestly could not find a single fault. Everything I thought I would be anxious or nervous about they completely took off my hands and made the whole day run so smoothly. The food was amazing we also had pizza’s in the evening which I highly recommend. Every single one of our guests said how great the food was. Although I know they do lots of weddings here it felt so personal and I felt really looked after. I have also been here as a guest recently which was another fantastic experience.

We had our Indian wedding here at Rivervale and Lyndsay from start to finish ( even after care ) has been AMAZING. Thank you for an incredible day.
Couldn’t have done it without your attention to detail, support and organisational skills! It was the best send off into married life… 💖 we loved every moment. Thank you! x

Best night of my life

I'd like to start off saying a warm thank you to the rivervale barn, we had our wedding here on the 31.10.22. We cannot thank all the staff enough for ensuring the night ran smoothly, especially Ash whom whilst I was pacing in the halls awaiting to go to the church along with another young gentlemen did a nice job of making small talk with me which really helped calm my nerves a bit!! All in all, its a beautiful venue, we got such amazing garden shots as it was in autumn the colours are truly stunning to behold. The food was gorgeous, and the accommodation after you can retire to was just a bonus. Thank you rivervale barn - Mrs. Marshall
