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. In 2021 we will also include the services of a wedding coordinator (Price will increase accordingly)
Each one of your suppliers will be contacted 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 they are already booked for your date.
If you choose your own caterer where ours is not available, we would ask to see your caterers insurance certificate as well as their Hygiene certificate.
We do not charge any corkage charges whatsoever. Our professional bar service will offer you tons of possibilities and you can customise what drinks you wish to offer your guests. (do check with our approved bar supplier first about bringing your own drinks)
