Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the venue was closed this year from Monday 23rd March to Saturday 4th July. When the first lockdown eased, weddings were allowed to proceed again but only with restricted numbers, and so almost all couples due to get married here this year have been forced to postpone their weddings. Our hearts go out to everyone whose plans have been impacted by the coronavirus outbreak, and who have had to put their plans on hold. We are particularly grateful to all the couples due to get married here at The Barns, whose positivity and understanding at this time has been hugely appreciated. We hope that soon you can start to feel excited about your wedding again, and we cannot wait to celebrate with you when the time comes!
From Wednesday 2nd December, weddings for up to 15 people will be permitted under all three tiers of restrictions, although in Tier 3 (the highest level of restrictions) only ceremonies will be allowed. Wedding ceremonies and receptions are permitted in Tier 1 and Tier 2. We are delighted to be able to offer microweddding packages for small, intimate celebrations, with fully flexible packages that reflect the need to allow for changes in restrictions (please see below for further information).
We had the honour and pleasure of hosting some glorious intimate wedding celebrations this autumn before the country went back into lockdown, and are proud to be a fully licensed, fully COVID Secure venue. We have conducted a full risk assessment and put necessary measures in place to ensure the safety of our couples, their guests, the registrars and our staff - this is of paramount importance to us. We have a range of packages available for microweddings, which can be easily adapted to changing governmental guidelines (for example, if guest numbers change at the last minute) and we also offer fully flexible payment terms so that if a sudden change in circumstances were to prevent your wedding going ahead, you would not be left out of pocket. Please contact us for further information on our packages, pricing and availability - we would love to hear from you.
Finally, and most importantly, the past few months have clearly been incredibly difficult for all of us, for countless different reasons - and from all of us at The Barns, we wish for your health and happiness above all else, and look forward to returning to hosting celebrations as soon as it is safe to do so.
