Perfect Wedding Venue
What an amazing day at Stratton Court Barn. We got married in the late afternoon, the sun was shining, and it was still very warm, hardly a cloud in the sky. Chris and Cathy could not have done more for us, so welcoming and helpful, recommending Sally and her fantastic catering team and Karin, our wedding planner who was simply incredible.Sent on 25/09/2019
It’s hard to describe the feelings as we walked into the barn arm in arm, between our lovely friends and family but they were all heightened because of the setting which was magical. The high vaulted wooden ceiling, stone walls, oak beams and the light flooding in through the huge windows made it seem like something from a fairy-tale.
The ceremony was emotional and once, we walked out of the barn under a shower of dried petal confetti into the courtyard for champagne and canapes. Our photographer was spoilt for choice for photo locations with old stone buildings, flower gardens, courtyards and wood fronted barns all surrounded by beautiful countryside. We were even lucky enough to get a picture perfect sunset over the fields.
As evening approached, we returned to the main barn for dinner. The atmosphere was electric and the food delicious, we had seventy guests sat in comfort and all able to clearly hear the speeches, which were thankfully very well received with much laughter and a few tears.
Dinner finished it was time to party where the bar and dancefloor were soon full of animated, happy people while others spilled out onto the courtyard to chat with friends on the comfortable covered seating. It was still warm so we didn’t need to light the fire pit.
We finished at midnight, elated and still buzzing after the most perfect day of our lives.

Such a beautiful day!
We could not have asked for more from Karin and her team at Stratton Court Barn! This was the first venue we visited and we drove away having that gut feeling that this was the perfect place for our wedding. Everything from our initial visits, consistently helpful and supportive email exchanges, to the run up of the final few weeks confirmed for us that we made the right choice. Karin was unfailingly helpful, cheerful and encouraging, and has an amazing knowledge of a brilliant range of local suppliers. Planning a wedding and the lead up to the day can be stressful, but everything was made so much easier as we had complete faith in Karin and the day itself flowed perfectly. The venue itself is the perfect balance of relaxed and beautiful, surrounded by gorgeous countryside. It worked so well to have our 60 guests gather together in this warm, bright and welcoming setting. We had the most perfect day and would thoroughly recommend Stratton Court to any couple for their special day!Sent on 19/12/2019
