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.Sent on 29/04/2020

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!Sent on 15/06/2018
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....
