Full Description
Getting married at Barnutopia is an experience like no other. Set in a stunning rural location with breath-taking views in every direction, the glamping village, licensed wedding barns, outdoor space and amenities are perfect for unconventional weddings and receptions. Barnutopia offers exclusive hire for 2 nights Friday to Sunday or any two nights midweek. Near the village of Llansilin, Powys, Barnutopia is literally on the border between England and Wales. This is just one of the quirks that makes the venue special. The wedding barns, glamping accommodation, campsite and facilities are beautiful and practical. This is a fabulous country venue with all the conveniences you need for the perfect rustic wedding. The large licensed wedding barn can seat up to 120 guests. The Dutch barn, next door to the cookhouse and with access to the event barn, is an excellent indoor/outdoor space where you can have a drinks reception if the weather is poor. Barnutopia provides fire pits, logs and garden seating or hay bales. Campfires are encouraged, and the owners love to see guests enjoying an evening chatting in the sunset. Tie the knot outside against the backdrop of the Shropshire and Powys hills. Guests can enjoy our horses, donkeys, pigs, dogs and cats. If you prefer a church ceremony, St. Silin's church is just over half a mile away along a leafy country lane. Barnutopia opened as a glamping site in 2015 and began hosting events and party weekends in 2016. They applied for and received their licence for wedding ceremonies in 2017 and hosted their first marriage in August that year.

Personal Message from the Manager

Thank you very much for considering Barnutopia for your wedding. We know there are lots of venues to choose from and we'd love to show you around ours. I post lots of pics on our website and social media and, lovely though they are, they don't do us justice.

The perfect hosts
We had our wedding at barnutopia in August and we can't recommend this venue and staff enough. Katrina and Steve were the perfect hosts from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Nothing was too much for them. The weather was brilliant and even when the heavens opened later in the evening, everything was in hand. Thankyou all for an awesome day.

The most perfect venue
Thank you for the most perfect venue for our wedding. We couldn’t have picked a more perfect setting. And the fact October weather managed to hold up enough for us to get married outside was amazing. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, the Ruell-Jones’

Perfect Wedding Venue
Just had a weekend glamping to celebrate my sister's wedding. Beautiful location with stunning views. Owners Steve and Katrina and all the family and staff were fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble, food provided on evening before and morning off wedding was superb. We had afternoon tea as the reception with a buffet selection of delicious sandwiches, cakes and snacks. In the evening, there was a grill with a fab choice of burgers, hotdogs, chicken (including veggie options) and all the accompaniment followed by eton mess. Our group occupied both the yurts and small lodges which were very comfortable with more than adequate room, heating and full electricity. Shower and toilet block on site. Table linen and chair covers were also provide. Reception was held in the fairy light lit barn, which has a bar area(provide your own drinks) and a disco/dj space. In the evening we had a fire pit lit and sat around on hay bales chilling out. Added extra being cats, dogs and pet pigs to be petted and donkeys due to arrive soon. Definitely recommend for a break away or as a wedding venue.

FAQ
(10)

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Ooh, that's a hard one. Every event, party and wedding is different. We love seeing how the barn is transformed for each one. Probably the highlight so far is the first wedding that was filmed for an an ITV series following British businesses through their first year. Barnutopia is one of the success stories.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Book the venue and registrar and don't worry about the rest. It's a bit like going on holiday, as long as you have the essentials (a place to sleep and clean underwear) everything else will sort itself out. At our very first wedding the evening caterers (booked by the bride, phew, not us) failed to turn up. We ran into town and bought a load of burgers, chicken fillets and pizzas and fed 65+ hungry guests within an hour or so. It turned into a fabulous evening.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Another hard one. The weddings and events we have at Barnutopia are almost always DIY and full of personal touches. The first reception had hundreds of pom poms and decorations made by the whole family, a birthday party had an illuminated sign made from cardboard and fairly lights, a wedding party had a bounce house and the bride managed to bounce herself out of it (no damage done!) It's lovely to see what folks thing of.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Unique, beautiful, friendly, well-equipped, memorable.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

With views in every direction you can choose almost any spot. However, looking out from the yurt field takes some beating.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Baroness Karren Brady attended the very first wedding in August 2017.

What’s your favourite canapé?

I'm not sure I have a favourite canape. I can say, though, that canapes are probably my favourite kind of food. I love the variety and being able to choose from lots of different savoury treats.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Red wine and popcorn. Not very sophisticated, I know. But it is midnight, after all.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Depends on who you're talking to. According to our guests it could be the stunning views and outdoor ceremony spaces, yurts and yurt field, the event barn or the animals.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Oh golly. We are passionate about every part of our business and work hard to make it a welcoming, comfortable and practical venue. We are very proud that we have achieved and have been rewarded by 5-star guest reviews.
