    It truly was the best day of our lives

    From the moment we arrived at White Dove Barns we knew that it was our dream wedding venue: from their characterful and stunning facilities, the outstanding location and warm and welcoming staff.
    The food was above and beyond our expectations and Stuart the chef and his team could not have been more accommodating in meeting our preferences and dietary requirements. Many of our guests commented saying it was the best wedding food that they have ever had.
    Spencer and his team struck a fine balance perfectly, between being available to help and letting us do our own thing.
    The accommodation was excellent and we were so happy to find a venue to sleep so many in such comfort and quality. It goes without saying the bridal sweet was perfect, especially the natural lighting to aid your make up artist. The bed in the bridal sweet was so comfortable we now want to buy a new bed!!! The Dove Barn is a fantastic facility to host a welcome party the evening before your wedding for guests. We would highly recommend this as it allowed all of our guests to get to know each other before the big day.
    The wedding barn and ceremony areas make for a beautiful setting, so much so that we decided to tone down the decoration as the barn speaks for its self.
    Overall an outstanding wedding venue with so much adaptability and quality. We honestly wouldn’t change a thing about our day. With all our love and future wishes to brides and grooms Mr and Mrs Findlay x

    Outstanding



    We booked our wedding at white dove barns back in October 2018 as we fell inlove with every corner of not only the venue itself but the outstanding accommodation and grounds too. (Utterly stunning) We spent many months planning our perfect day with Alison, Spencer and Greg on hand for every little question/query and even though we found communication slow at times nothing was ever to much trouble. Fast forward to 2020 and covid hit the UK you can imagine the stress the team at white dove barns were put under with all their spring/summer weddings (our wedding wasn’t suppose to be until October) however we sadly received some life changing news which meant our personal circumstances changed and we were forced in to the decision of bringing our wedding forward in a time where all other weddings were being postponed due to government restrictions. Greg and his team spent weeks (months) assisting us back and forth with our plans which would change daily at times due to the covid restrictions and our personal circumstances but the team went absolutely above and beyond to ensure that we still had our perfect day with our loved ones there to see! The level of compassion and support we received was second to none, we couldn’t recommend white doves barns enough.

    Any business can provide a good service when everything is going smoothly but it is when a business is tested that you really see the level of service they provide and we honestly believe the circumstances could not have been any more difficult for ourselves and for the team at white dove barns yet they really did put us first every step of the way!

    We are so grateful for everything the team done for us, we had the most perfect ceremony which really could not have gone ahead without Greg’s help not to mention how beautifully the team dressed the barn for our ceremony without us having to lift a finger.

    Best day ever!

    We had the best day of our lives getting married at this venue in March 2020. The setting, food, staff and coordination on the day were 100% perfect. We could not recommend this place to get married enough. Thank you all for everything.

    The only venue for us!!

    We quickly choose White Dove Barns as our wedding reception venue after seeing it for the first time....It is quite simply a stunning venue, located in a beautiful countryside location with fabulous renovated barns & farmhouse & excellent facilities. The large barn where we had wedding breakfast is breath taking!

    The above is completely complimented by the professionalism & hard work of all the staff who work there, the whole process was made easy for us by both Greg & Sam who help guide us through our day planning.

    I cannot fault our experience, the sun shine all day, the venue looked beautiful, the organistion was slick & went like clockwork, the food was fabulous with excellent service & all of our guests without exception commented on what a perfect day it was!

    We choose to rent White Dove Barn & Marsh Farmhouse for 2 nights to accommodate the main wedding party & this was brilliant as we were all together the night before for relaxing, chat & a bit of a party! :-)

    Of course it depends on your budget but when we compared White Dove Barns with other local wedding venues it was obvious they are in a league of their own & are in our opinion the premier venue for the area.

    On behalf of my wife & I, I'd like to extend a huge thank you to the complete team including manangement, service staff, kitchen, cleaning & maintenance for providing a first class venue & helping make our wedding day absolutely perfect & completely exceeding our expectations.

    5 star venue....

    Hi Greg
    A quick note to say a huge thank you for a wonderful day and weekend at White Dove Barns. Sam, the Chef and the team were truly outstanding and could not have done a better job. Please pass on our sincere thanks and appreciation to them.

    Mr and Mrs Davis

    Couldn't have asked for a better venue for our wedding. The staff were fantastic especially Sam who bent over backwards to make our day/weekend a dream. Everyone is still talking about it. Food was lovely, photos are fantastic. Would recommend them to anyone thinking about where to spend their special day. Didn't want to leave on the Sunday. The children had the freedom and safety to enjoy themselves.

    Suffolk Weddings's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words it means so much to all of the team!

    It could not have been more perfect

    Marsh farm was the most amazing venue for our wedding, and it couldn't have been more perfect for our friends and family to join us for the weekend - they can't stop talking about it!

    We wish we could do it all again, in slow motion! Huge thanks to Tim who couldn't have been more helpful - an absolute star in helping everything run so smoothly. We have some really wonderful memories which will stay with us always!

    Superb wedding venue

    The search began to find our wedding venue... On our special day all we ever wanted was to have everything our own way, our choice of florists, cars, photographer, music the list was endless. Marsh farm aloud us to do it all. The location was just perfect, the setting for photographs looked amazing and the accommodation was superb.

    Our wedding was perfect in everyway

    From the very second we arrived on the Friday afternoon to the minute we reluctantly packed our bags on the Sunday morning! The ceremony ran faultlessly and everything else fell into place behind the scenes without our guests (or us!) knowing.
