About The Priory

Little Wymondley
Hertfordshire, SG4 7HD

The Priory Barn at Little Wymondley near Hitchin is a charming and unique exclusive use wedding venue nestled in the Hertfordshire countryside.

The Priory’s historic barn is located in extensive grounds with an ancient moat on both sides, providing a picturesque and ambient setting for outdoor ceremonies. The barn itself, with its wooden beams and rustic atmosphere, can also be used for civil ceremonies. 

Both spaces offer ample opportunity to be decorated according to your personal taste, with previous couples adorning the barn with lanterns and balloons and sprinkling flowers across the length of the aisle outdoors. Whatever you’re imagining for your day, The Priory team will help to create a beautiful bespoke design just for you.

You are welcome to hire The Priory Barn for both a ceremony and a reception or for your reception only. Your arrival time is not fixed and music is licensed until midnight. Drinks can be served when the ceremony is over or when you arrive and the team can provide anything from champagne to Pimms or mojitos and mocktails. 

The eminent chef at The Priory has created and developed a range of signature dishes, including everything from delectable canapés to mouthwatering mains that can be individually selected to form your very own bespoke menu. Alternatively, you are welcome to discuss your own ideas or favourite dishes with the chef or select an informal dining option such as a BBQ or hog roast.

When it comes to after dinner entertainment, the barn is ideally equipped with a stage and can be set up for live or recorded music. The Priory is happy to recommend musicians and other forms of entertainment as well as a host of other wedding suppliers to complete your perfect day.

The venue is also able to recommend a number of nearby hotels and self-catering holiday homes, each within easy reach of the venue offering a place for you and your guests to retire to following the festivities.

If a relaxed, rustic celebration tailored to you is what you’re looking for, then contact the team today to find out more or to book a viewing.

We recently got married at The Priory Barn Aug 08 The barn is huge and extremely impressive... as soon as we walked into the building on our first visit we knew it was the wedding venue for us. Our guests were amazed by the beauty of the barn. Everything ran like clockwork. The staff were extremely polite and competent. The food is to die for! Geoff the chef is a genius when it comes to food... Anything you want they will prepare, they do have a menu for you to choose from but it can be adapted to suit you! They will bend over backwards to help you achieve your day the way you want and envisage it. The grounds are extremely well kept... lovely for the piccies. Priory Barn is a fabulous venue for your wedding we would recommend it to anyone. I cant think of anything else you would need to know... Go and see it for yourself, I can assure you you will not be disappointed!
