The Old Stables
We provide a practical and clean catering kitchen for your chosen approved wedding caterer to work in; with separate back-of-house access and their own washroom and toilet facilities
The Cart Barn
This is perhaps one of our most spectacular features – The Cart Barn is home to an exclusive fully-equipped cocktail bar designed by renowned London interior architects Wignall & Moore. With two fabulous mezzanines linked by a stunning steel and glass bridge, luxurious sofas and a cosy log burner, this is the perfect place for fairytale-style photographs and fantastic group shots. Antique mirrors abound, you will be stunned at our piece de resistance, a huge original Belle Epoque chandelier glittering above you as you walk towards the ceremony room.
We have baby-changing facilities, easy access toilet, a cloak-room for up to 250 coats and a table with a post box to receive those all-important wedding cards! Our styled loos are in keeping with the rest of our luxury barn even down to having a gossip room in the ladies complete with (optional) Prosecco tap!
The South Barn
This is our luxury wedding breakfast and reception room, where your fantasy is no longer just fiction. We have everything you need, such as gorgeous rustic trestle-style tables, a lavish lighting selection, from our deluxe chandeliers to our twinkling fairy lights. We also have a projector with a drop-down screen coupled with wireless microphones for the speeches and a selection of easels with a choice of table-plan frames on which to pin your seating plan.
Picture your first dance, with a glittering, rose gold mirror ball shining above you, and the band or DJ playing your song from our impressive built-in sound system. Imagine the atmosphere, people twirling around you, your parents watching on with joy, all under the umbrella of our starry sky of ambient lights.
As your Fairy Godmother and guide, we want you to enjoy your day hassle-free, so we’ve taken care of everything. We offer different sizes of top tables with a designer lighting rig above and luxury seating for up to a maximum of 250. Although 90 – 180 guests is perfect for downstairs, if your wedding is a larger affair, we can seat up to a further 70 on the mezzanine. Alternatively if you have a smaller wedding, you can use the mezzanine alone.
The North Barn
This is the place where the magic truly happens and your story, finally, begins to unfold. Picture that beautiful moment when you are walking down the aisle, the room alight with candles and fairy lights, as the musicians play elegant music from the balcony above. The room is designed with romance in mind, envision exchanging your vows with up to 180 of your guests watching, seated on elegant designer chairs. To add that extra bit of sparkle to your day, we also have a public-address sound system that will play your choice of music, and will ensure that your guests hear you and your partner exchange promises that will last a lifetime.
The Dressing Gallery
On the day of the wedding, what better way for a princess to prepare, than in a room that caters to her every need? We have the recipe for a perfect day; take a blushing bride, a handful of bridesmaids – give them an elegant chamber for them to get ready and before you know it, they unveil their spellbinding transformations.
The room is beautifully furnished with an en suite shower, fresh fluffy towels, high-hanging hooks to hang your gowns, an ornate wooden bureau concealing three full-length mirrors and a sound-system for you to play your own music. Just for you, we have created the perfect lighting for your hair and make-up, with lots of power sockets for all of your beauty-related accessories.
