Absolutely incredible venue and team!

The absolute best venue. The views are stunning, the team are extraordinary, and the venue itself is just gorgeous. And the fact that the venue is a blank slate made everything so much better. We were able to have our black wedding without having to hide anything that didn’t fit our vibe.
Phil, Jaime, Jackie, Liv, Amy, and all the team went above and beyond to make our day amazing and make sure everything was perfect! From the moment we booked the venue 3 years ago, to the lead up to the day, they have been nothing but unbelievable helpful and kind. Phil and Jackie were there the whole time, making sure everything ran seamlessly all day. And Iona and Jura, the adorable Highland Cows, topped everything off, making Southlands Barn a fantastic wedding venue!

Flawless, highly recommend!

I had my wedding at Southlands Barn in August. The whole thing was amazing. the venue was stunning, it didn’t even need decorating as it was all done already! (The decor/ not the tables). Everyone at the barns was so lovely, friendly and accommodating. Liv was exceptionally amazing. The whole day was perfect, I would highly recommend!

THE most incredible team

The team at Southlands are absolutely incredible. From the moment we contacted them to our big day they couldn’t have been friendlier or more helpful. They provide such a personal experience and are genuinely the loveliest people. We could not recommend them more and wish we could do it all over again! (The venue is also absolutely stunning!!!)
