Facilities and Capacity
At Selden Barns, wedding ceremonies are licensed for up to 100 guests in the stunning Ceremony Barn adjoining the Farmhouse with original oak beams, fireplace, and exposed brickwork. To add a little extra sparkle, fairy lights entwine the beams overhead while you make your wedding vows. Alternatively outside ceremonies can take place on the manicured lawns with stunning views. After your ceremony, enjoy pre-reception drinks and canapes on one of their lawns within the walled gardens or terraces adjoining the Grand Barn. With the capacity to seat up to 230 guests for your wedding breakfast and up to 250 for your evening reception, this versatile and flexible wedding space is second to none. The space boasts pleated drapes, swags and tails, vintage chandeliers, and a fairy light canopy. For your evening wedding reception, party the night away on the venue's raised, chequered dance floor with provision for a DJ or band. During the summer months, step off the dance floor and through the doors onto the splendid terrace and lawns to enjoy your favourite drink and look up at the stars.

if we hadn't decided on Gretna Green then we would have had our entire wedding at Selden.
The most perfect venue
Most Beautiful Place
Selden Barns were absolutely incredible to work with since day one of booking our Wedding day with them. They responded very quickly to any queries we had and having a wedding coordinator throughout the planning process and on the actual day made everything run so smoothly. It put us at ease knowing we were in good hands!
Our Wedding day came and it was everything we could have wished for. The whole day ran so smoothly and this was down to the Selden Barns Staff. The time keeping for the whole day was flawless. They were also a tremendous help in the setting up and clearing away of our decorations.
The drinks package that you can have was excellent value and we had plenty of alcohol for our guests throughout the day with the staff ensured our glasses were never empty! The costs of the drinks at the bar were also great value.
It was so lovely having some our close family and friends stay the night in the exceptional B&B rooms and the morning after we were treated to the most amazing breakfast! We had an excellent stay and being able to have accommodation at our venue meant the world to us.
We'd definitely recommend Selden Barns to anyone thinking of getting married there and will absolutely be back to stay in the B&B some time in the future.
Our perfect wedding day (May 2023)
We really did have the best day of our lives, it went exactly as had pictured it in our minds and the team at Selden pulled out all the stops on the day (particularly Steph in our case) to make sure this was the case.
We would highly recommend Selden Barns.
The location is simply stunning!
The most perfect wedding at Selden Barns!
Rachel is just fabulous and takes away all the stress....nothing is too much trouble. On the day the communication between the staff was excellent, managing people and timings perfectly.
We wanted a day of fun and laughter and that's exactly what we got. The new bridal suite is perfect and truly a special room. Our guests also loved their rooms and breakfast the next day was a fun and filling experience! We didn't look at any other venues as we knew from the moment we looked around that Selden Barns was the place for us! Thanks so much for everything x
We honestly had most fantastic day!
Now we are back from our honeymoon we just wanted to thank you for all that you did in the run up to, during and after the 11th. We honestly had most fantastic day and we cant thank you and your staff enough. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone and we couldn't have asked for anything more!
A massive thank you to you and your team!
We have just started to get back to normal after our mini moon so we wanted to drop you a quick email saying a massive thank you to you and your team for making our day a huge success and the day of our dreams.
I genuinely could not have asked for more on the day or in the lead up to the wedding. Everyone of your team over at Selden was exceptional I can’t really put into words how much the effort and thought is appreciated!
Thank you again we had the perfect day.
We could not recommend it enough!
Thank you so much to you and your team
Amazing job Rachel & the Staff
Fiona (Brides Mother/pepper Wedding 24/3/19)"
We had the most fabulous day!
Breakfast was delicious too.
Our wedding was an absolute dream!
Our wedding planner was absolutely brilliant right down to the last detail to ensure everything was perfect!
The venue looked stunning and we couldn’t have asked for anymore.
Thank you to all of the staff at Selden Barns for making our wedding so so perfect!
Incredible incredible incredible!!!
I’m a major organised freak and both Rachel and Jo made me feel so at ease (this is unusual!!) nothing was too much trouble and I felt like I could ask anything and email a million times without feeling like I was annoying them.
Selden was the first venue we saw when choosing (I think we looked at around 6 barns) and immediately I knew it was the one, we really loved that there was a completely separate ceremony room which most barns don’t have, as well as all the really reasonably priced accommodation which is incredibly handy when all the grooms family is from up North!
All the staff including the gardeners and Selden’s chef were so unbelievably friendly and made such an impression on us all, we can’t thank you all enough for making us feel like king and queen on our special day, really could not recommend you guys enough!! Xxxx
