Full Description
Dronfield Hall Barn is a unique wedding venue dating from 1430, that offers rustic charm with contemporary facilities. We have a number of areas available which offer the wedding ceremony, outside courtyard and beautiful grounds, wedding reception, quiet areas to sit, a bar area and a dancing area. Our philosophy is to provide an intimate, relaxed, magical day where you can spend plenty of time with your family and friends, and we LOVE our couples to bring their own style and originality to our venue. You can have a civil ceremony in our magical gallery and we work closely with the Derbyshire registrars. We have an amazing, very experienced wedding co-ordinator, Pauline, who will work very closely with all our couples , including on the day organisation, to ensure everything runs smoothly and you can relax and enjoy your day. We have a bar, and continuing with our complete bespoke philosophy you can request ales and particular spirits etc. to be stocked. You are welcome to provide your own drinks for after the ceremony, during the meal and for the toast. There is no corkage charge. We also offer an in house bespoke catering service, where we would devise an individual menu for you and your guests, to reflect the type of wedding you are wanting. This can range from street food for the evening, pie and peas or sausage and mash, to a la carte dining. This would be priced separately, and we would work with you to get the most cost effective plan for your day. We believe that you should have the wedding you want and we work with you to put your personal touches to your day. There is a lovely hotel at the end of our drive offering 11 bedrooms, and they offer a special rate to people who are attending weddings at the Barn and will also host an after party, which will be open for residents until the last man is standing! We can offer an interest free payment plan to help with budgeting, please ask for further details.
