Perfect Winter Wedding

Winters Barns was the perfect venue for our winter wedding on the 29th December 2023. We cannot fault the venue in anything; they were attentive, communicated well (with my 100 questions!) and really made us feel like we were the only couple to have ever got married there. The venue and grounds are absolutely stunning and were perfect for our professional photos. We would like to thank Winters Barns for an amazing wedding day.

Beautiful Barn

We had our wedding at the beautiful Winters Barns and it was a perfect day. So magical and the staff were so attentive and lovely.
They knew every single thing they needed to happen and listened to our needs throughout the planning process.
Sally was our Co-ordinator and she was just so lovely and lively and made me feel so comfortable.

Thank you so so much to all at the winters barns team for being so incredible! We are so thankful and will always cherish the special day you helped us have xx

Better than perfect!

We had our wedding at winters barns in early march and we had the best wedding! There are so many photo opportunities at winters barns to choose from which are all stunning- interior and exterior. All the organising was easy for us as it was done in house by the wedding coordinator- in our case, it was Lizzie. Lizzie was absolutely brilliant with all aspects of our wedding and so organised and professional. The ceremony itself was perfect and was all ready to go very early for me to see over before the actual ceremony. The Bridal salon offered everything the bridal party needed, as did the pump room. The cottage was perfect, so clean and so tidy. As was all of the rooms in the farm house and the hop picking hut. Jon the barman was so kind and polite and really was a superb character, he also helped make the evening so memorable. there was not a single thing I found a fault with and our wedding day went so perfectly and smooth because of the beautiful surroundings and organised co-ordination from Lizzie, Jon and the rest of the team at winters barns. Absolute perfection, Thankyou so much for Making our day so special!

Fantastic wedding venue- faultless

We had the pleasure of getting married here mid May and we had the most perfect day! We cannot recommend Winters Barns enough. From the first time we viewed the venue we fell in love with it, all members of staff are so friendly and every little detail has been thought about. The layout of the venue is brilliant, giving everyone with different wants a space, plenty of seating outside, tables for dinner in their own room, sofas by the bar which is right next to the evening reception room meaning everything flowed brilliantly without people getting lost in the space.
Through the whole process we were kept up to date and had regular communication. The team answers all my emails and questions promptly and a massive thank you goes to Sophie our wedding coordinator who was absolutely fantastic and faultless! Everything was so organised ahead of the day which was brilliant peace of mind for us. On the day everything ran so smoothly with nothing being too much for the team to do. We had several comments from guests about how brilliant the venue and staff were. They helped set up the space and ensured everything was packed away at the end of the night ready for us to take away from the store room the next day. The accommodation is lovely, as was breakfast the next day (to make perfect it would be nice if a fried breakfast could be served but this may be a caters decision).
We honestly cannot recommend Winters Barns enough!

Winters Barn - An incredible venue & Team

Winters Barns and the team were exceptional from our first time at the venue, to the day after the wedding. Their attention to detail and accommodating nature was second to none, with no request being an issue or problem. A friendly team who work with pride and professionalism.

Sensational venue and staff

As soon as we viewed Winters Barns we knew it was the venue for us. From start to finish Sally and the rest of the team were absolutely amazing. Queries were always responded to promptly and nothing was too much. We can honestly say the day wouldn鈥檛 have gone as smooth without them. Sally was fantastic and truly helped make our day perfect and we can not thank her enough for being part of our day. Lauren and Daniel :-)

Excellent!

We had the most amazing wedding at Winters Barns. Sophie was our wedding planner and she could not have done more to help us. She helped keep the process and planning stress and hassle free, always being on hand to help with queries and last minute changes. Sophie was instrumental in helping us have the perfect day - she assisted the team in decorating the entire venue and ensured all of our instructions were kept to. She was a friendly, calm face throughout the entire day and made sure that everything ran smoothly. The consistency of having Sophie as our planner and on the day was really great as we built a rapport with her and she knew exactly what we wanted. We could not fault Sophie in any way and we feel that our perfect day was largely thanks to her.

A Perfect Venue!

Winters Barns is by far the best venues we could have ever dreamed of. The venue is so beautifully decorated and had so much character that when we first visited, we knew there and then it was the right one for us. In the lead up and then on the day, everything was so well thought out and flowed perfectly. For someone who鈥檚 a bit of a control freak, I felt in such safe hands. Lizzie, our coordinator was amazing and smashed every part of the day. If anything went wrong, I certainly did not know about it. The function rooms, the honeymoon suite, the bridal/grooms prep, the guest house, everything was just gorgeous! The food and drink supplied by Scott Anderson was too amazing and we received a lot of lovely comments! Thank you Winters Barns and especially to Lizzie! Xxx

Outstanding, Breathtaking

Like most after numerous cancellations due to covid we were back to the drawing board. We were due to marry in Cyprus however it was cancelled twice and almost gave up trying. We found Winters Barns and planned to visit and look at booking for the following year or two due to UK wedding costs. On arrival the venue was breathtaking. It had everything you could possibly ask for under one roof. We fell in love and then panicked somewhere so beautiful would be out of our budget. Sophie gave us the grand tour and after our talks I realised it was within our reach. They also had one last date in October this was 7 weeks away. We decided to just do it. With 7 weeks to plan an entire wedding Winters Barns couldn't of been more accommodating. They were always on hand. They couldn't of done anymore for me if they tried. No question was ever to much or left unanswered. They were incredible. I wish so much I could relive my wedding day at Winters Barns over and over. It was the most amazing day I could ask for. The venue, the caterers the bar staff, the planners. Each and every one of them were faultless. Our guests continuously complimented all we had put together even down to entering the grounds which may I add were immaculate and gorgeous. It had so many photo opportunities my photographer was in her element. Who would have thought organising a wedding in 7 weeks could be so stress free. Although each and every person were amazing Sophie our planner was one of the most amazing girls I've met. She was out of this world and is unbelievable at her job whilst giving off a personal vibe. We are so grateful and thankful to all involved in making our happily ever after finally come together. I would highly highly recommend this venue to anyone that crosses our path.

A truly wonderful wedding venue

We couldn鈥檛 have been happier with our choice of venue for our big day. Winters Barns is absolutely beautiful and the additional festive decor around the barn really added a special touch for our winter wedding. The service we received from the start of our wedding planning process to the day itself was second to none. The whole team at Winters are absolutely fantastic at what they do and offer such an efficient and organised service. A particular thank you to Lizzie, who made sure our day ran smoothly, you are amazing! We would thoroughly recommend Winters Barns to anyone, thank you so much for making our wedding dreams come true!
