The Perfect Day

From our initial inquiry through to the day we collected all our decorations after our Wedding, Diane and the whole team at The Old Barn we're fantastic.
We had a clear idea of what we wanted to be, but we're complete novices to Wedding planning.
They have an incredible range of food and drink packages to choose from and are pretty laid back about any vendors etc that you want to hire.
Our day ran perfectly smoothly (despite the constant torrential rain) and all of our guests very very complimentary about the whole celebration.
The decor of The Old Barn is stunning and the staff couldn't do enough for us.
Throughout our planning, Diane gave us lots of tips and tricks to ensure the smooth running of the day and what works/doesn't work usually.
Also, Alex their in house DJ deserves a special mention. We contacted him the week before our wedding with a list of music that we wanted for our reception.
He went above and beyond in delivering exactly what we'd asked for, including a surprise dance routine from the Groom!
We have absolutely no regrets in booking The Old Barn for our special day and would highly recommend this venue to anybody :)

An amazing wedding day!

We had our wedding at The Old Barn this September, it was the most magical day. One we will never forget, Dianne is an absolute treasure! So helpful and patient. The venue is stunning, everything all under 1 roof, the food and drink is excellent and we are forever grateful for the experience we received. I highly recommend this venue for weddings, parties and get togethers.

We couldn’t have asked better from the old barn. It was an absolutely incredibly day and they looked after us from start to finish. I have never felt so special and the old barn just added to how perfect it all was!

Perfect Wedding Venue

We had a wonderful wedding day at the Old Barn and that was down to the organisation and prifessionalism of the staff. The assistance and guidance given by Diane was exceptional. The venue is beautiful and loved that you get the use of the whole premises and that it is over two floors. Would highly recommend
