Facilities and Capacity

The Canary Shed welcomes couples to spend the weekend living it up in style. You're welcome to arrive at noon the day before your nuptials and spend the day decorating and indulging in some pampering in the spa. Feeling renewed, you can wake up and get ready in your luxurious suite, elegantly designed for the first round of photos. Ceremonies can be held in one of the farm's rustic barns, accommodating up to 120 guests. Both marry rustic and contemporary design and have windows and sliding doors to let in natural light. For a truly spectacular reception space, celebrate in their more traditional barn. There, you can dine beneath a hundred paper birds, adding a pop of colour and a touch of whimsy to the space. After another blissful sleep in your newlyweds' suite, join your guests for breakfast and another spa day to recharge.

Services Offered

Upon booking your dream wedding at The Canary Shed, you'll have free reign over design and can secure the best local vendors.

An exceptional wedding venue

We got married at the Canary Shed in Sept 2023. It really was the perfect venue for our wedding and the team were incredible both in the run up and on the day.

Having a space where we could have lots of people stay with us over 2 days was really important to us. We found a few venues that offered this but the Canary Shed was by far the best in terms of accommodation and the venue itself. I work in the wedding industry and I see a LOT of venues, which made me quite a fussy bride! I had worked at the Canary Shed before and met Emily just after they had finished building the barn. The whole ethos they have around the business, sustainability, supporting artists and small businesses and the community more widely was something I absolutely loved and something you really don't see from a lot of wedding venues which can be quite 'conveyer belt' like.

Jade came on board as venue coordinator about a year before our wedding and she was absolutely brilliant. She answered every question we had so quickly and efficiently, she was way ahead, contacting suppliers on our behalf and advising us on lots of things.

On the weekend of our wedding, the team let us have access to everything we needed to setup and were on hand for any questions. It was wonderful to see the vision I'd had for the last 2 years really come to life! Some of our family enjoyed the spa and hot tub and we all spent the evening in the Granary which was lovely.

On the day, Emily led the coordination and was a lovely calm presence. She nailed the music timing (which was something really important to me!) and the whole day ran so smoothly at one point we were half an hour ahead of schedule (which NEVER happens at weddings!)

So many guests commented on how lovely the accommodation was and were delighted to be able to stay on site. The nearby accommodation too offered great options for other guests and although I was a little worried about taxi availability (a few people had struggled to pre-book) everyone who needed to, got away absolutely fine.

I can't recommend the Canary Shed enough. It will always have a very special place in our hearts. Being able to bring our little pup along with us too was a lovely addition as he's a big part of our family! Emily, Jade and the team are fantastic and will do everything they can to make your wedding day everything you want it to be. Thank you so much ❤️
