Autumnal wedding
From the moment we both drove up to Curds Hall Barn we both knew this was the place we wanted to get married at. The barns and the outside space are just so beautiful making it an ideal place to get married. Eleanor was our wedding planning and what an amazing lady she is, she made us both feel so welcome and she was there for us when ever we needed her advice. Eleanor was there for the whole day during our wedding, making sure everything went to plan, we are very grateful that we had her there on our special day. We had the most amazing day in October celebrating our wedding with all our family and friends it will will be something we never forget. We just can’t thank all our suppliers who helped our day run like clockwork. If you would love to have a DIY wedding, but knowing you have the support of very experienced wedding planners then we would highly recommend this amazing place to anyone getting married.

The most beautiful venue!
We fell in love with Curds Hall Barn as soon as we arrived! It was everything we had in mind and more! The barns decor and natural beauty won our hearts! Annabelle and the team couldn't have been more helpful, from emailing and answering my most random queries to making our dreams come true by making it possible for us to have a Carousel at our wedding! We also hired The Coach House for the weekend, which was lovely being so close to the venue and being able to have our family stay with us. We cannot recommend this stunning venue enough!

Response from the venue
Thank you for such lovely words, Georgia! You guys had such incredible vision when it came to putting your stamp on the barn and the result was epic!! You brought so many details together in your own way and the barn looked fabulous! You even incorporated the outside space in a really lovely way for an Autumn wedding. We cannot wait to see more picture of such a beautiful celebration. You were both such a joy to get to know and work for. Please keep in touch! Love, the CHB Team!

The team were so accommodating
We recently got married at Curds Hall Barn and cannot recommend them enough! Everything about our day was perfect and that’s down to both the beautiful venue and the wonderful team. From our first viewing of Curds Hall, we knew it was special and had so much potential. The fact that it’s dog friendly too was a massive win for us as we wanted to include our pup in the day! Being a blank canvas allowed us to make the venue look exactly how we envisioned it and the team were so accommodating.

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We have been very lucky to have seen a huge variety in the weddings that we have hosted so far. From festival vibes with outside dancing to a rustic extravaganza complete with pet sheep and even a country and western inspired day! The best weddings are definitely those where the couples embrace their individual style and passions.

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

Planning a wedding can be a very difficult time for couples to manage the expectations of others with pressure from many areas. I would always encourage couples to try and focus on achieving the day of THEIR dreams and to try not be swayed by the wants and needs of others.

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

My favourite personal touch was when one of my couples decided to take some time out of their drink reception to find a quiet spot to re-read their vows to each other in private. I always advise couples to try and find a couple of little 'time outs' during the day together as the day can go by so quickly and you can find yourselves very busy hosting, with little time for each other. This was such a beautiful way of connecting in the moment on their special day. ...I must say, I did also love watching a room full of guests take a shot of whiskey during a celebrant-led ceremony to toast the happy couple - that definitely got the party started!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Friendly, rustic, scenic, flexible, versatile

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

With over 12 acres of parkland and fields and buildings dating from the 17th Century, there are so many options! With unbroken views for miles, the golden evening sun and particularly the Autumn sunsets with a countryside backdrop are simply spectacular - real mantelpiece stuff! My favourite spot is under the mature copper beech tree when it is in full leaf.

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

Not yet...

What’s your favourite canapé?

I love a goats cheese and red onion tartlet!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

I have loved seeing the variety of evening treats that our couples have chosen recently, particularly some of the food truck offerings. Dirty fries always seem to go down well!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The long sweeping driveway definitely builds suspense before revealing the incredible flintwork and red brick walls of the barn but the most unique feature is probably the barn's original Grain Store and Hopper which have been retained in full, providing a point of interest for photographs.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Our team. Curds Hall Barn is a family run business and even those of us who are not officially related feel like family now! The team work very hard behind the scenes and genuinely enjoy going the extra mile supporting our couples through their planning journey and on the wedding day itself. We appreciate our privileged position as a part of your wedding day, taking great pride in getting to know couples and forging some wonderful friendships along the way.
