When booking the Haybarn wedding venue you are sure to have an exclusive wedding. There will not be any other couple, visitors, or gate crashers on site, or any stranger in the background spoiling your photos . The campsite and glamping accommodation is also totally yours to use. Depending on the package you chose is either included, or available as an option. If you book the barn only, there will NOT be another wedding on the field.
We are at hand to discuss your wedding and special requests during your planning stages, build up, and rental time. We will discuss everything in great detail, so that everything runs smoothly on the day. We include up to three site visits, or meetings, prior to the event. We can also put you in touch with a wedding coordinator if you need to.
Each one of your suppliers will be contacted such as your caterers, or marquee suppliers, photographer, florists etc..
to discuss arrival times, correct gate entrance, parking, and on site procedures. We will also meet with them on site when needed.
Food is an important part of your wedding and we believe that what you offer your guests should be what you want on the day. We offer bespoke weddings. This means that you have the total freedom on commissioning all aspects of food and drink to suit your ideas, theme, tastes, and budget. Unlike hotels and other traditional wedding venues who will insist and force on you their limited menu options.
At the Haybarn you chose! from a huge selection of menus from our approved caterer, or you are free to choose your own.
If you choose your own caterer or ours is already booked elsewhere and not available, we would ask to see your caterers insurance certificate as well as their Hygene certificate.
We do not charge any corkage charges whatsoever. Weather you supply some of your own drinks, or commission a professional mobile bar service, you have the choice. (do check with our approved bar supplier first about bringing your own drinks) If our bar is not available on your chosen date, or if you wish to chose your own supplier, we would insist on a Licensed Bar and would need to see proof of Insurance and Licence.
