Sunday 12th August 2018
Venue Service

By Naz & Sarah Duymun, on 10 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 12 Aug 2018

A wonderful venue which provides great food & stunning countryside surroundings. The majority of the staff were welcoming & attentive, particularly Nicola & Helen, who we are very appreciative of. However, not only did we as a couple have a few unprofessional encounters with senior members of the team with questionable conduct, another of our service providers were also on the receiving end of this unacceptable behaviour. Unfortunately, they seem to adopt the ‘Now we have their money ...’ approach, which tainted our experience slightly. Despite raising our concerns about this unprofessional conduct via email directly to Upwaltham (for which we received an acknowledgement receipt almost 3 weeks ago) & in a follow up customer satisfaction survey, we have received no response at all, which once again highlights the unprofessionalism we faced at this venue. Had we not had to face these issues or, had Upwaltham emailed an apology to us in response to our complaint, a much higher rating would have been awarded, which is a real shame. Although this element of the service was regrettable, we still had the most amazing time and are grateful that we had our wedding at such a beautiful venue; we are so thankful for those members of the team who worked tirelessly to ensure that it was the most special day for us, our family & friends.

Could not imagine getting married anywhere else
Venue Service

By Vicky and Robbie, on 27 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Jun 2017

We were married at Upwaltham Barns on Saturday 3rd June 2017. Thank you so much for making our day so perfect. From the moment we arrived to view the venue two years ago, we just couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else. The owners Tim and Nicola made us feel like old friends every time we went to visit (and we did that quiet a few times over the years)! The flow of the venue works perfectly for weddings, we were lucky enough to have beautiful weather on the day, but even when visiting in the rain it was lovely. The venue is so very well looked after and always has lovely flowers in bloom somewhere. The staff on the day were excellent, always happy to help and our guests commented on the brilliant service. We can't recommend Upwaltham Barns highly enough, thank you very much for everything.

Our day was just perfect
Venue Service

By Claire Daly, on 27 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 13 Apr 2017

We were married here on the 13th April and it was just perfect. The team on the day were outstanding, the food was incredible and the venue itself is just so beautiful that it really created the most wonderful atmosphere for our big day. Our wedding day was honestly everything that we had hoped for and more. From our first visit to the barns, they have all been so incredibly supportive and lovely. It really is an outstanding wedding venue in every way. Thank you all again!! xxx

Outstanding venue
Venue Service

By Andrew and Heidi, on 27 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 09 Apr 2017

We were married on Sunday 9th April and just like the weather everything was perfect. This is an outstanding venue. The staff were all amazing and nibbles2nosh served up the best food I think I have ever tasted. The staff are so well organised, the day ran like clockwork. Thank you to Steve for making sure all my guests had plenty to drink, to Helen for helping us to arrange the day just as we wanted it and her team for setting up all the games up in the courtyard and to Nicola and Tim for having such a lovely venue you are happy to share and making our wedding the most special day we will never forget. Oh and a big big thank you to Steve for finding Andy's ring. I bet that was a first.... Loosing his ring an hour after getting it! Anyone who is thinking about booking your wedding here, it is perfect, you will have the best day ever... Promise!

Incredible service and generosity
Venue Service

By Fay and Tom, on 27 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 08 Apr 2017

How do I begin to thank Upwaltham Barns for their incredible service and generosity? We were married on the 8th April and the team went above and beyond to make sure our special day was perfect down to the last tiny detail. Words cannot thank you enough for your kindness and efforts. The staff at Upwaltham are more than just a team of people going through the motions. They support you, care for you and put in 110%. A special shout out to my wedding coordinator Helen (my fairy godmother) who we just adore. Everything she touches turns to magic. Thank you Upwaltham Barns! Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

The most perfect of days
Venue Service

By Ian Dines, on 27 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 24 Mar 2017

We were married yesterday and it was the most perfect of days. From the initial build up to the day before to the event itself, Kate, Marsha, Nicola and the whole team couldn't have done enough for us. It was down to them, the amazing food and the brilliant staff that our day ran like clockwork. There is simply no better place to be married.

Beautiful setting
Venue Service

By Dave Court, on 27 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 18 Mar 2017

We attended a friend's wedding here yesterday and it was by far the best venue we have been to. Beautiful setting, lovely staff, some fantastic spaces (the Morrocan Snug was our favourite) and the food was perfect. Everyone's wives were saying they wanted to marry again so they could come to Upwaltham Barns!

Recommend the venue to anyone
Venue Service

By Jolene Almond, on 27 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 05 Mar 2017

We were married here on Sunday and had the best day possible. The venue is amazing as are all the staff, Nicole & Tim really do make it very personal. I already want to do it all again & will be recommending you guys to anyone I know getting married. We had so many people saying how gorgeous the barns are. From start to finish you made it for us. Best venue around xxx

The venue looked beautiful
Venue Service

By Caitlin Gunn, on 27 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Mar 2017

My husband (love saying that!) & I got married here on the 3rd of March. From start to finish it was the perfect day and the venue looked beautiful. The staff couldn't do enough to help and we're all friendly and inviting. They made sure the day ran like clockwork which is essential as it's such a whirlwind of a day! Honestly can't thank them enough for helping make it one of the best days of our lives.

Everyone had a fabulous time

By Vicky Winslow, on 27 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 25 Nov 2016

Everyone had a fabulous time and the venue was just perfect. Thank you to Nicola and Tim for being so lovely and the team for making our day so wonderful x
