REAL WEDDING: CHRIS & LEXI
Our beautiful couple Chris & Lexi chose Johnathan from J.S Coates photography for their summer wedding at the Haybarn. Johnathan captured the entire day from early morning preparations in our Bridal cottage until late into the night for some great night time party shots. Chris & Lexi’s wedding was a festival themed wedding with a tipi. With street food and a horse box, Jumping over the Fire, Lawn games and a big fire pit all creating a fantastic atmosphere.
Johnathan created many great images of our couple’s private ceremony under a 300 year old ash tree by the brook and surrounding woods. Other shots seen in this gallery where taken on our country lane adjacent to the wedding field, and other images taken in our gardens.

VOW RENEWAL: LAURA & HAYDN
WOW ! we have much to say about Laura & Hayden’s surprise vow renewal.
Firstly I am sure you agree these stunning photos speak for themselves.
This was a very special event for the Haybarn team. We where approached by Laura in confidence 6 months prior to the event. Laura wanted to create a secret surprise for Haydn. Our coordination team made sure that every single supplier, guest and relative was to keep absolutely everything completely secret form Haydn who had no idea that Laura was preparing a surprise Vow renewal. What a beautiful thing to do !
Laura blindfolded Hayden at their house after turning up in a wedding dress accompanied by many guests to propose Hayden on their door step. Hayden was just told to wear a suit for a nice day out.. He had no idea that he would be whisked off to the Haybarn for a full on wedding. His expression is priceless when a drag queen turned up for a drag act ceremony! This was exceptionally well captured by Sophie the photographer. The rest of the day was an absolute blast, what of lovely and fun loving couple. The day was filled with laughter, Music, Easter Egg hunt, Caricatures, Drag act, DJ and much more..
Hats off to Laura who worked so hard in such a short time organising her wedding on her own and with the help of our coordination team at the haybarn.
We selected some of our favorite images, a difficult process as Sophie supplied us with a huge well organised folder containing over 1200 images ! all stunning. We highly recommend Sophie her photography style is flawless.

REAL WEDDING: MORWENNA & GREGG
One of our favorite weddings so far for several reasons.
Morwenna & Greg where a wonderful couple who wanted a very colourful wedding with a Pagan / festival feel.
Our venue was the perfect setting and very meaningful too as one of the relatives of the bride grew up at the farm long ago and now a guest at the wedding.
It was an emotional and extra special day for some of the guests who grew up here as small children.
It was amazing seeing photos from the 1950s of the farm long before it was a wedding venue and hearing a few stories. Such a pleasure to meet you all, and thank you for bringing along the old photo album!
Our couple hired a giant Circus style marquee, had many entertainers, food and live music throughout the day with a brass band, a Kaylee band and a DJ for the night. A fun filled day with Lawn games, Sac races, Bouncy Castle and much more.. The day was just perfect. What a fantastic truly magic experience and unique wedding! We loved it. We had over 1500 photos to chose from and selected the following samples by Florence Fox Photography https://florencefox.com/
REAL WEDDING : BELLE & STEVE
Steve & Belle had a very bespoke intimate wedding with a mix of French Caribbean traditions and music. Some delicious Caribbean & English food too!
Hats off to the many guests and family who caught 12~18 hour flights for our wonderful couple’s big day, and forgot about Jet lag.
Belle & Steve fell in love with our venue which they had only visited during Covid Lockdowns via a Zoom call! They certainly made use of all of the space available.
Thank you to our couple for sharing a few selected hand picked official images by photographers Adam & Ami:
Since we only have a small selection of professional images, we have also added a few photos we took ourselves here (we think you will definitely spot the style and difference from our trusted phone photos to pro-photographers !)
REAL WEDDING: IAN & STACEY
Our lovely couple Ian & Stacey booked us way back in 2018 when they made a massive leap of faith when they booked us when the barn was just an architect’s drawing. 2 years of Covid lockdowns meant the wedding date was moved several times.
Ian & Stacey also opted for a full twin hat tipi on our wedding field to great effect. There where many children on the day and overnight glamping & camping. It was so nice to see all the children enjoying the open spaces. A delicious Carvery was freshly cooked on site by the catering team.
It was the hottest day on record clocking 34°c and the grass had turned yellow. Such a bright sunny day made a very memorable day for our couple and guests but also a challenge for photographer Adam Paul Telford (APT photography) who worked hard all day in full sun without stopping, taking over 1600 images! here are some selected ones for you to enjoy.

REAL WEDDING : JOSH & PAIGE
What a lovely totally laid back chilled out wedding. Paige & Josh where both the most easy going couple ever!
The rain and drizzle on the day did not spoil the fun, with clay pigeon shooting for guest entertainment.
With a beautiful Ceremony inside our Wedding Barn, and with street food, and music it was the perfect day followed by camping and glamping on the night. Paige & Josh wanted a totally relaxed laid back, Fuss free wedding and to simply to share a lovely time with their family & close friends. It was a pleasure to work with our couple.

Tim & Helen booked us 3 years ago and waited very patently for their big day. Their wedding was postponed several times and moved due to Covid lockdowns. The wedding finally came after a long wait ! This wedding was meticulously planned down the the finest detail. Helen did a fantastic job at dressing the room exactly how she wanted. Tim & Helen opted for a more traditional wedding with a church ceremony in the village. A fantastic gigantic grazing table was set up for the food.
The photographer took several photos in our private gardens. Here are samples of Tim & Helen’s photographer (Photos by A.G images) (link coming soon)
Bellow are a few extra photos we took ourselves during the preparations so that you can see the beautiful table layout and décor. Most of the images here where taken the day before with a lovely sunset.
Tim & Helen booked us for a full week end so that they had all the time to set up and personalise their wedding.
There are a few images of the big day too where you can see the delicious food.
