Nestled in the picturesque grounds of Secret World Wildlife Rescue near Highbridge, Somerset, the Bluebell Barn offers a unique rural place for wedding celebrations. This 17th-century renovated barn offers a beautiful and rustic environment, completed by exposed wooden beams and a cosy wood-burning furnace. You and your loved ones can celebrate surrounded by nature, enjoying the ambience of chirping birds or in the company of our friendly red deer. The Bluebell Barn is the perfect venue for lovers of wildlife, as any event held leaves a positive and lasting legacy. All of the funds from nuptials go to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of orphaned and injured British wildlife through the SWWR charity, which helps around 5,000 animals in total per year.

The perfect venue for wildlife lovers

We got married here in February and I'm so glad we did - the whole day was magical!

Abby and team pulled out all the stops to make the day a success. No request was too big, small or silly (including dressing up as Bertie the Fox)!

The venue was stunning - we were free to decorate the barn as we wished and they provided a few things we were able to use if we wanted. Abby arranged the catering for us from local Purple Spoon and that was so delicious and easy! On the day, we didn't need to think about anything as it all just happened - a really well oiled machine! The staff were all incredible.

The barn was such a magical place to get married - the daffodils had come out and the sun decided to make an appearance too. And even more importantly, the peacock and Polly (the deer) and Emu (the emu) came out for photos too!

Thank you Abby, and all the staff, for your wonderful organisation and for making our day so magical!

Unique and intimate

The Bluebarn Barn is the perfect venue for a unique and intimate wedding. With peacocks roaming the grounds, and Polly the Deer showing off in your photos, it is an ideal setting for anyone with a love for nature and wildlife.
I have photographed a wedding here and I have seen first hand how Abby and the team go above and beyond to make sure your day is as special as possible.
