Where do we even begin with this one of a kind wedding venue which now has a very precious place in our hearts.
We got married here over the August bank holiday this summer and the best way I can think to describe it is that it feels like home.
Every time we came to Villiers leading up to the wedding we didn’t want to leave (and that tree lined drive always met with a smile never got old). Juliet, Jonathan, Barry and the rest of the Villiers team are all incredible people who love what they do and who truly share your vision. And it wasn’t just when we were at the venue we felt this way, it was also felt in all of the behind the scenes communication which over the several months of planning, we can honestly say there wasn’t anything that was too much for them. All of our requests were met with an overwhelming sense of understanding and very much a “can do” attitude.
This family run business is honest, genuine, warm and loving and all of these qualities shine through in everything that they do. From the pristine venue designed based on decades of industry experience, the effortless management of the day and the fantastic service, to the absolutely delicious food. Everything is executed to the highest standard, going above and beyond in all aspects of the day - which made our wedding more than everything we dreamed of and one which every bride and groom deserves.
We cannot thank the Villiers team enough. We will be forever grateful.

We couldn’t have been happier with our experience and wedding day at Villiers Barn at the end of May.Sent on 12/07/2021
From start to finish Jonathan and Juliet guided us through everything and combined with the stunning venue, we knew that this was the venue for us. With the added worry of rearranging multiple times with COVID - We were so lucky with their support that the process was still enjoyable and stress-free.
The venue had everything we were looking for and stood above the other venues we viewed by far. We were looking for a rustic barn venue and this ticked all our boxes. The stunning entrance, bridal suite, courtyard area, the HUGE ceremony room, spacious reception area, the views from the ceremony/ reception room and just the finish on the venue is immaculate. We first viewed the venue when works were still underway and their attention to detail and high quality finish is obvious everywhere. We also loved how the venue flowed for the day. There was plenty of open space for our guests but not so much that people got lost or the venue felt empty.
The bridal suite is perfect for getting ready in and has plenty of space. Our suppliers commented on how great a space it was for our hair and make up to be done. The unique feature of the pool was great and we were lucky enough with the weather to have a dip.
Jonathan and Juliet were on hand all day but perfectly balanced without being intrusive. We didn’t need to ask for anything and everything was thought of.
The food and drink was also impressive. We were more than pleased with the quality and options offered. We also had a tasting session which was really helpful for us to pick our options for the day. The quality of the meals and portions were excellent. We had so many comments from our guests that it was the best wedding food they’d had. It was restaurant quality and not like most of our experiences which felt like reheated meals.
Honestly I couldn’t have imagined our wedding day going more perfectly and we feel so lucky to have been one of the first weddings at Villiers Barn. We just know that this will (and can see already has!) be a sought after venue for years to come.

We got married at Villiers on 18.09.21 and what an incredible venue! The barn is exquisite and Juliet, Jonathan and the rest of the team are faultless! They couldn’t have been more accommodating, organised and put us at ease that our day would be everything we hoped for and more. Every little detail had been thought of, the honeymoon suite is beautiful and our wedding day was perfect. Could not recommend the venue and the team enough!Sent on 20/09/2021
