We loved every second of it!
I just wanted to email to say the biggest thank you possible for last Saturday. Honestly we had the most amazing day and it was mainly down to you two. I don't think people really appreciate how much work you guys must be doing in the background for the entire weekend to make sure everything runs as smoothly as it did - I didn't have a single worry for the whole day because I knew you were in charge making sure everything happened when it needed to, and that's priceless on a wedding day! And everything did go exactly to plan and we loved every second of it! Thanks again for all of your help, and for being so patient with my incessant emails, and for having my dream wedding venue!

Such a special place to be.
Thank you again for accommodating us and allowing us the blank canvas to put on the day how we wanted it. You have been brilliant with us from day one when glamped in your bell tents on the farm side, then when we camped on the dunes the following year, through to planning and having our wedding this year. It is, and will always be, such a special place to us so thank you! Walks along the untouched beach with his dog, fresh north sea air, friendly staff and of course an on site bar!

Stunning and unique barn and beach venue
As a local florist, I'm always delighted to work along at Barn on the Bay. It's such a unique and amazing venue with so many different options for your wedding day. If the weather is good, you can tie the knot on the most beautiful Northumbrian beach, then dance the night away in the spacious and versatile barn. Ali and Phil are such easy going and laid back hosts, it's always a pleasure to be involved with any wedding or event there.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Oh, so many to mention! Some couples really stay in your thoughts, Rachel & Kyle are one of those couples. Kyle brought Rachel to stay on the farm before we even did weddings for their first camping date. When they got engaged they chose us as the obvious choice for their wedding. They had a boho festival weekend and personalised the venue so much. They still come to visit, as do many of our other couples, and have a drink in our bar.

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

Don't be scared of having an outdoor wedding in the UK, our beaches are some of the best in the world here in Northumberland and on a sunny day you could think you're anywhere in the world! As long as you have an adequate rain plan and a flexible venue team it'll be worth it.

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

We love it when couples get their pets involved! Your dog should be part of your ceremony, but we do expect to see them in a cute outfit!! If you don't have a dog you can borrow one of our alpacas, they love a good wedding.
