Wedding of our dreams ✨

Mike and I had our wedding at Tall John’s House in December 2022. And we honestly couldn’t have picked such a perfect venue. From the moment we viewed Tall John’s, we completely fell in love with the place- the house, barns and grounds are beautiful, and it was exactly the kind of ‘blank canvas’ wedding venue we were searching for. Even better-it’s dog friendly, so our little pooch could be included in our day too :).
The whole planning process was a dream- Liza was so helpful and relaxed throughout. The place was so flexible with your plans, and the whole experience was stress free. Even with some last minute changes that were out of our control, Tall John’s staff were understanding and reassuring, and everything went so smoothly.
Archie was great and very attentive throughout, and was there during the day for us and our guests if we needed anything, which was a great help too!
The fact that the place is exclusive for the weekend of your wedding made it such a personal and relaxed place to be. We could make the weekend exactly how we wanted it to be! Ken cooked a lovely meal for us and the immediate wedding party the night before the wedding, and nothing was too much trouble! It was a lovely way to spend the night before the big day once we had finished decorating, and we really enjoyed ourselves.
We got married in the main barn, and had our drinks reception in the Granary, with the reception then back in the main barn, as it was during the Winter. The main barn was so beautiful, and looked even better than I ever could have dreamed of! Everyone loved the Granary too- and were loving the secret room with the pool table! We had some lovely photos and videos in the grounds too.
We used the Dr’s Orders bar for the evening, which Archie and Sophie provide. They were so lovely to plan with, and they were fab on the night- everyone commented on how friendly they were, with a great selection of (very reasonably priced!) drinks.
The cottages were spotless and such a lovely place to stay. Our guests stayed in the cottages, stables and Manor House-many said to us afterwards the the beds were the comfiest they had ever slept in, and were full of praise for the breakfast the next morning, which was a lovely way to end the weekend. Our only regret is that we didn’t book another night to relax for the day after the wedding.
I honestly couldn’t recommend this place enough. My husband and I, as well as all of our guests had the most fantastic weekend, and are so grateful to Liza and all the team for truly making this the best weekend ever!

Wonderful wedding weekend

We had the most magical wedding weekend. Tall Johns helped moving our wedding date forward due to a change of circumstances and couldn't of helped more when we needed it. Archie was fantastic with all the guests and Liza cleaning up the mess we made with the dry flowers. The rooms and barn were all fantastic, we've got so many memories from a lovely weekend and a special venue. Can't thank you enough!
