Set in the picturesque countryside of Bridport, in England's Dorset region, the Tithe Barn at Symondsbury Estate is an idyllic venue for a country wedding. Whatever your vision for the day might look like, the barn provides a stylish backdrop, allowing your imagination to run wild in dressing the space as you wish.

Facilities and Capacity

The 14th-century barn has been renovated to enhance its natural elegance, from its large arched entrances, exposed oak beams, and underfloor heating for cooler months. You can spend your whole day at the Tithe Barn, from exchanging vows to your evening reception. The venue is licensed for civil ceremonies and partnerships, with a seated capacity of 120 guests. A beautiful private garden with seasonal flowers and twinkling fairy lights is the perfect spot for drinks and canap茅s. You can also use it as a scenic backdrop for your wedding photos. The estate is home to many luxury holiday cottages and farmhouses, which can allow the celebrations to go on past the wedding day itself.

Services Offered

At the Tithe Barn, couples will be supported throughout the wedding planning process by a dedicated in-house coordinator. This professional will be on hand to help you make your vision a reality. They offer exclusive-use of the property, giving couples peace and privacy as they celebrate their milestone. The team know that catering is every bit as important as the venue itself, working with local catering partners you are able to discuss your menu options and choose a style that suits your day, from an informal buffet to a timeless seated meal.

Happily Ever After

Words can not describe what a magical wedding day we had on the 11th of April this year at the Tilthe Barn. Amy and the team worked so hard to make sure our day ran smoothly and it really did. The barn is beautiful and understated, everything we could have wished for :-) Thank you, Mr and Mrs Main x

Enchanting venue

My husband and I got married at the tithe barn in April and could not have had a more perfect day. Kirsten was amazing throughout the lead up and the day and we could not be more grateful for just how magical our day was. The venue is truly beautiful and we would highly recommend it to all our friends and family :) thank you so much for everything :)

Perfect rustic venue

My husband and I cannot recommend the Tithe Barn in Symondsbury enough. The second that we walked into the barn we knew it was the perfect venue for us. The barn itself is stunning, and you are free to dress it however you like, which really appealed to us. The private garden is beautiful, both by day and by night. We got married in October and had an autumn theme, which looked stunning at the barn. Every single guest has told us how beautiful the venue was. Probably the best thing about the Tithe Barn is the incredible team that run the weddings. We initially met with Amy, who was amazing at helping us understand how the day could run and what we wanted. I don't remember her ever saying that anything we wanted would be a problem. Once Kirsten joined the team at Symondsbury Estates she became our wedding coordinator, and we could not have asked for anyone better. She genuinely cared about our day as much as we did! We did not worry about a thing on our wedding day as we knew Kirsten had everything in hand. Everything went exactly to plan on the day thanks to her. In all our experience at the Tithe Barn was perfect. We had the freedom to do things our way but with the support of an amazing and experienced coordinator. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding day.
