Two weddings a week can take place in the main barn so this gives you extra days for setting up and clearing away.

Here at Furtho we love to help you create your own unique wedding from having just a ceremony and a couple of hours in our grounds for photographs, to having a full wedding reception with a big party in the barn. Every wedding is important, and we have seen a few very special intimate weddings in 2020.”
