About The Barns Hotel

Located in Bedford, Bedfordshire, The Barns Hotel is a charming wedding venue serving couples in the East of England. Situated near the River Ouse, this serene property oozes a calming ambience ideal for those seeking a big-day escape. Featuring sheltered indoor and open-air spaces, it combines the great outdoors with luxurious interiors. Here, couples and guests are sure to have an enjoyable time as the magical occasion unfolds.

Facilities and Capacity

For ceremonies, the magnificent 13th-century tithe barn provides somewhere eye-catching and inviting. Here, as many as 90 people can gather to share the “I do” moment. Chairs can be arranged either side of the aisle for the wedding party to take their places as everyone waits with anticipation. At the head of the room, the couple can stand as they exchange vows and become newlyweds. With exposed beams and rustic interiors, this space complements the surrounding countryside landscape. After the happy couple makes their exit together, they can enjoy photos around the grounds. The terrace provides a romantic setting for portraits and loving embraces. The river flows by here, creating a truly magical ambience fitting of such an important life moment. When the time comes for the reception, the barn can again be used, repurposed to accommodate chairs and tables.

For the wedding breakfast, as many as 90 people are welcome to take their seats in the barn. Round tables and chairs can be arranged so that everyone has an excellent vantage point for the speeches. Meanwhile, up to 120 people can be welcomed for the evening festivities as everyone parties the night away in style. Alternatively, the restaurant is also available to make use of. Overall, the maximum capacity of The Barns Hotel is for 150 people.

Services Offered

Onsite culinary specialists are delighted to craft delectable meals for the couple and their invitees to enjoy. Some of their main courses include roast chicken breast, salmon pave, confit pork belly, and more. When everyone has had their fill of fine food, a dance floor awaits for everyone to break out their favourite moves. Owing to the fact that outdoor fireworks are allowed, the day can come to a climactic finish as everyone gathers to witness the attention-grabbing display. Accommodation is also available at The Barns Hotel, meaning that guests can enjoy a good night’s rest in one of the many dozen contemporary rooms. Other available services include a wedding coordinator, an MC, parking, and more.

    Could not have been more efficient...

    Just a note of thanks for looking after us on our special day last Saturday.

    Such a lot of planning goes into those few hours but your venue, and of course the weather, combined to make it a beautiful and special day that we will remember for ever.

    I would particularly like to single out Alec our Co-ordinator for the day who could not have been more efficient, and full of empathy for all of the Wedding party and their needs – something that is sometimes missing in staff who deal with customers on a regular basis, handling what are in reality the same old questions and issues!

    The Hotel Manageress on the day and in breakfast the following morning, whose name sadly escapes me, could also not have done more to make us feel valued.

    I trust you will pass on our gratitude to your team.

    We just want to do it all again!!

    Good Morning Sam,

    We just wanted to say Thank you so much to you and everyone at The Barns involved in our day on the 3rd of May. Mags & Alec we’re so attentive throughout the whole day and made us feel nothing was too much trouble. Holly did a great job of running the evening and keeping me involved.

    Thank you for your help on the build up, you must have so many weddings to plan but you knew exactly how to calm my over worrying mind!!

    We just want to do it all again!!
    We will be back!

    Love
    Mr & Mrs Barker
    xx
