Rivervale Barn can be found on the banks of the River Blackwater in Yateley, Hampshire. Built with weddings in mind, this barn venue exudes elegance and charm and makes the perfect location for your big day.

At Rivervale Barn, your day flows effortlessly throughout the venue. Each room adjoins to one another, making every part of your celebration totally accessible in one private location. This means there is no need for additional transport or inconvenience for you and your guests.

Begin your day in The Pamper Room where you’ll experience peace and privacy so that you can relax and enjoy that special time before you tie the knot.

Once you’re ready make your way to The Ceremony Barn. Filled with natural light through cathedral-style windows, look out onto the beautiful gardens as you exchange your vows. Traditional features such as oak panelling, exposed beams and the Minstrel’s Gallery, provide a warm and romantic atmosphere for this special moment.

If the weather is on your side, The Spinney is an idyllic outdoor ceremony space that is only a few steps away from the barn but offers a sense of seclusion and intimacy. Accompanied by birdsong and surrounded by Rivervale’s beautiful gardens and atmospheric woodland, The Spinney is the most magical place to say ‘I do’.

Following your ceremony, the Reception Room is the ideal space to start your celebrations. Enjoy a selection of canapés and a drink of your choice whilst experiencing the spectacular Mediterranean Courtyard. With guests sampling their delightful refreshments explore the gorgeous gardens and capture those all-important photographs with stunning backdrops.

The Dining Room is truly impressive and guaranteed to wow your guests. Its high ceilings and round chandeliers coupled with your own wedding theme and personal touches make the room absolutely perfect for your evening celebrations. The only thing that could rival the setting is the amazing wedding breakfast served up to you.

When the day draws to a close, you can retire to the Cornstore Cottage, Rivervale’s very own honeymoon suite. Its beautiful beams, inglenook fireplace and relaxing garden views create a luxurious space to retreat to at the end of your perfect day.

    Wedding Review

    The venue itself is incredible, such a beautiful place to have a wedding. It was by far the best we visited in the lead up to our wedding. The only thing that put us off booking straight away, is that it was a bit more expensive than some other options, but you most definitely get what you pay for. I really feel we had great value for money and many times we’ve mentioned how thankful we are that we stretched the budget to ensure we had our wedding there.

    Firstly, the staff – Massive credit to all of them. We had Hayley as our personal contact throughout the whole experience and she was fantastic. You could tell from the beginning she was very experienced and knew exactly what made a great wedding. No request was too much and we felt they were hugely accommodating to some requests outside the norm. I also have to credit the head chef, Michael, as we wanted food that had an Arabic twist, which is not something usually offered, but the food was incredible – Make sure you do the tasting event, to sample the food first. This really helped with our decisions on what to have for canapés etc. On the day itself, all of the staff were so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble and the service was impeccable. For example, each guest on the table received their food at exactly the same time, which in my opinion, is a really nice touch and something guests commented they really appreciated.

    Even a year later, we still get people commenting about the venue, food, service etc. which is testament to how excellent it was. I would 100% recommend to anyone looking at having their wedding or event at Rivervale Barn.

    Fantastic Day!

    Once we visited Rivervale Barn we knew this was where we wanted to have our wedding. This was the second marriage for both of us and we wanted a venue that was simple but elegant. We got what we wanted and more! From the time we booked our date to the time we left the venue the morning after our wedding we were so pleased with the wonderfully professional, helpful and gracious service of our wedding coordinator, Hayley Baker. The food was amazing, the service fantastic, the staff kind and efficient. All my guests were raving about the day. Hayley even provided the weather that she promised!! I couldn't have asked for a better day.

    The best day ever!

    My husband and I got married here yesterday (14/5/17) and I can honestly say it was the best day ever! Venue, surroundings, food and team were exceptional. All our guests said how wonderful the venue was. I had wanted to get married here even before we were engaged and when we viewed the venue I fell in love with it even more. My now husband at the time of our show round immediately said "we're getting married here" when we walked in. We're so glad we did. Thank you to Michalea and the rest of the team. Thank you for making our day complete x

    The staff cant do enough for you

    My husband and I got married here on 12th May. I saw some pictures from a friends wedding and from then on I knew it was the one. When I brought hubby here for our show round, he immediately fell in love with it too. I got goosebumps every time we visited. Rivervale is our dream venue and we could not have asked for a more perfect day. Thank you to Sophie and Emma for everything that you did for us. The staff can't do enough for you and the food is heavenly. There are no words to describe just how amazing Rivervale is. Thank you so much.

    Myself & Lee got married here on the 23rd April 2017 at the stunning Rivervale Barn. From start to finish our wedding day was just perfect and topped off with the fact our dogs came was just amazing! This wouldn't have been as seamless without the amazing attention to detail from Hayley, this women is amazing and I cannot thank her enough for making the set up of the day so perfect and stress free. We will treasure this day forever. Thank you. X

    Amazing wedding!

    Went to my sisters wedding 18/11/16 with family including a 5 week old baby in tow. The venue speaks for itself, amazing. What makes a day is the staff and I cannot speak highly enough of them. All polite, friendly and attentive. I was feeding my baby and there was constantly water in front of me and offers of help - not expected but greatly appreciated xxx

    The venue is absolutely stunning!

    The day was everything I dreamed it would be and the team helped with this by far on the day. They just floated around and just ensured the day flowed and was without fault at all. My Mum couldn't believe how calm I was throughout the day but I honestly can put this down to knowing the staff were there no matter the issue.

    The venue though! The venue is absolutely stunning. I'd never have picked a different time of year as the grounds were filled with so many beautiful autumn colours. We got so many stunning photos and it truly went with our colour scheme (purple). The venue lends itself to having whichever colour you like as a scheme too and it is beautiful on its own or with lots of different decoration options.

    All the guests mentioned how incredible the staff were on the day. How professional and helpful they were. Another mention was evidently the food! This was exceptional and outstanding. The best food I've ever eaten hands down.

    But honestly, if you are considering this venue, go with it. You will not regret it. The venue, the staff, the food, everything about it was incredible and I just wish I could do the day all over again. Thank you Rivervale Barn and everyone who helped us with the day. We cannot thank you enough xxx

    Fantastic wedding

    We had the most fantastic wedding on 8th October of our daughter Emily and Jonathan. After a lovely ceremony conducted by the Hampshire Registrars, we then enjoyed a sumptuous reception with fabulous food, described as Michelin Star quality by a number of guests.
    We are so grateful to Emma and all her staff for making this such a treasured memory. Well Done!!

    Fabulous!

    Attended the lovely wedding of Chris and Grace Hardy yesterday and to say I was amazed by the beautiful venue would be an understatement.
    Fabulous - from the very warm welcome by staff on arrival, onto the lovely service, the saxophonist and very attentive/friendly staff serving excellent food and drink all day long.
    For anyone getting married this venue is well worth considering.
