The Thatch Barn
The Thatch Barn which was restored in 2016, has an open fire place at the end of the walk down the aisle.This space has retained the original oak beams, sandstone floor, floor uplighters, beam lights, and beautiful chandeliers. You can have candles in the original air vents in the barn walls, to create a romantic feel to your ceremony.
Confetti is permitted but it has to be real flower petals.
After the ceremony you can mingle with your guests on Apple Tree Lawn or Cider Lawn for drinks and canapés with the landscaped surroundings and gardens to admire.
Bridal Preparations in The Potting Shed
The Potting Shed is an inviting, creative space for the bride and her maids to get ready for the day ahead. There are some original features: from the makeup table made from wooden pallets to one of the farm ladders that is incorporated in the overhead lighting, with flower pots that are now lights.
This is a natural space with colours such as terracotta, pale pink and white bringing beauty to the atmosphere.
There is a luxurious shower room included with 3 well lit makeup stations, full length mirrors, a tiled entrance porch, vintage saddle racks and bridal hooks to hang your dresses on. In addition there is soft seating with an antique sofa, modern white tractor stools around the coffee table and sheepskin rugs all designed as a relaxing place for preparations.
There is a separate Bridal Porch just for the bride to get dressed in with a few mod cons thrown in ie: microwave, fridge, kettle and toaster to help get the day started smoothly.
