By Mr Tom Easter, on 21 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 27 Dec 2017

I cannot thank Claire & her excellent team for organising & delivering such an amazing day for us. I’d like to thank Claire for all of her work leading up to the wedding, helping me set up the tables on the morning & treating us like royalty throughout the whole process. I’d also like to thank both Glenn & Mo for their hard work on the day too. The Barn were so accommodating to all of our requests & we did not have to compromise at all.

Highly Recommend The Barn!!!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Easter, on 18 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 27 Dec 2017

I would like to say a huge thank you to Claire and the amazing team at the barn. They were incredible. My husband and I got married at the end of December 2017 and the day was so perfect. We all felt so looked after, and during the wedding planning Claire couldn't have been more helpful. To us, it was completely stress free. The recommendations Claire provided were amazing, the food and drink went down a treat with all of our guests and eveyone said what an amazing time they had. The venue itself is so beautiful. It's everything we wanted for our big day! We highly recommend The Barn!! And a huge thank you to everyone again for all the hard work you put in for us...
