The perfect relaxed day
Venue Service

By Cathrine and Billy, on 08 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 12 Oct 2018

We got married at Upwaltham last week and it truly was the perfect day. The owners and venue staff care so much about what they do and that really shines through. The day ran so seamlessly, and the team created the perfect relaxed day. You can make this venue so personal and I can't recommend it enough. Thank you to the whole Upwaltham team, we are still on a high from our special day!

Upwaltham Barns is a spectacular venue, we knew as soon as we walked in that we wanted to get married there. The staff are amazing so helpful, kind and understanding. They made sure our day went as smoothly as can be and was everything that we could have dreamt. Thank you for everything.

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.

A day we will cherish forever
Venue Service

By Nikki and Chris, on 08 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 07 Jul 2018

Chris and I got married at Upwaltham Barns on the 7th of July. We had the most wonderful day in the glorious sunshine. Throughout the 18 months of planning, everyone at Upwaltham was absolutely amazing. Despite the vast amount of weddings, they hold every year, we really were made to feel like we mattered, and everything felt so individual. The pride Nicola and Tim and their team have for the venue is clear throughout the beautiful barns and gardens, every detail is perfect. Thank you for a day we will cherish forever.

A truly beautiful venue
Venue Service

By Louisa and Duncan, on 08 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 26 May 2018

I fell in love with Upwaltham Barns about 0.5 seconds after we had walked through the entrance and we married there on the 26th May. A truly beautiful venue only surpassed by the amazing team that work behind the scenes, everything and everyone works so well together, and it honestly feels more like a family than a business. All our guests have said how perfect the day was, how amazing the food was and how polite, friendly and efficient the staff were. Thank you so much to all the staff at Upwaltham Barns for giving us an amazing day, that was honestly more perfect than I could ever have imagined.

The most amazing day
Venue Service

By Linda and Ben, on 08 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 11 May 2018

There isn’t enough space to write all the amazing things I could write about this unbelievable venue and its utterly incredible staff! I got married at Upwaltham on Friday and it was simply the most amazing day. From the minute you view Upwaltham you feel like family. Every member of the Upwaltham team goes above and beyond to ensure you have an incredible day. Absolutely nothing is too much trouble. Thank you everyone at Upwaltham!

The setting is truly breathtaking
Venue Service

By Selina and Tim, on 08 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 06 May 2018

We got married at Upwaltham Barns at the start of May and couldn’t be more thankful we chose it to be the start of our married life together. The setting is truly breathtaking, the food was delicious, and the staff were attentive and made our day so perfect it was beyond what we could ever have hoped for. Our guests felt well taken care of and we keep receiving wonderful messages saying how brilliant they thought the day was and that’s down to all the hard work and dedication from the whole team. Thank you so much for giving us, and our family and friends, a memory to last a lifetime

Beautiful countryside setting
Venue Service

By Zoe and Nathan, on 08 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 21 Apr 2018

Beautiful countryside setting for our rustic wedding. The barns have plenty of space for everyone to enjoy their day, the courtyard is lovely to have drinks outside and games or entertainment. The Moroccan snug is lovely for people to go somewhere quieter to talk and relax, perfect on a cold evening as it has heaters. The cottage is the perfect bridal suite, beautifully decorated and plenty of space to get ready in. The barns need minimal decoration as they are beautiful as they are.

It was the most amazing day
Venue Service

By Georgi & Chris, on 08 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 23 Mar 2018

From the moment we visited Upwaltham Barns, we knew this was where we wanted to get married. I married my husband here on 23rd March 2018. It was the most amazing day - wish we could do it all again! The barns are just beautiful and the service we received beforehand from the whole team, in particular our wedding coordinator Kate, and on the day, was fantastic. There was nothing they hadn't thought of and they reassured us throughout the whole process, reminding us of the things we needed to think about and the info we needed to give and when. It really was the best day ever and our guests all had the amazing feedback on the venue. Thanks again for everything.

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
