Fantastic staff and venue
We had a fantastic wedding, Ruth and the whole team at Elms Barn made sure everything ran smoothly. We fell in love with the venue on our first viewing and nothing else compared. We had an Autistic little boy at our wedding and they were absolutely amazing with accommodating his needs. The food was amazing and we were able to come up with our own menu. Couldn’t recommend enough.

Best day ever!
Our wedding day was absolutely amazing from start to finish! The team at Elms barn catered to our every need, and helped set up our dream day! Everything was even more beautiful than I imagined, food was excellent and all the staff were so kind, and Ruth was always there throughout to help co-ordinate and make sure everything was running smoothly. All staff were especially amazing when my grandmother had too much to drink and kept everyone waiting way later than expected due to breaking her arm! Truly a day to remember in more ways than one!

The perfect wedding venue.
Unbelievable service, organisation and on-day support to make sure everything goes without a hiccup. Victoria before the wedding and Sarah on the day make sure everything is set up for success. They accommodated 140 people at our request, the location is beautiful, and there is a good amount of on-site accommodation with enough local taxis to get everyone not staying on site there and back. Get married here if you can!

The most wonderful day at the most magical venue
Wow! We cannot put into words what an incredible venue this is and made even more special by the staff that work there. From day one (1.5 years ago !) the service we received, specifically from Victoria was outstanding. Nothing was ever any trouble, communication was fantastic and we visited the venue several times in the lead up to the wedding which again was always accommodated- she was absolutely fantastic and lovely to work with. We made a weekend of being at Elms Barn with a dinner the night before the wedding and a BBQ on the Sunday. The food was incredible throughout the weekend, service was fantastic- the staff are so so lovely and cannot do enough for you. A special mention to Sarah our wedding co-ordinator for the weekend; We cannot put into words how superb she was- professional, fun, super organised and just so lovely to have around on our special day- we literally wanted for nothing! The venue is truly stunning and made even more beautiful by their inhouse florists who made the barn look absolutely magical- a special thanks to Teena for helping bring our ideas together and to Anne for creating our vision of a ‘flower meadow’ along the bottom of the top table- just beautiful! Elms Barn is the most gorgeous venue with picturesque grounds and we are so pleased we choose this venue for our wedding day. Thanks again to all the incredible team, we cannot recommend you more highly. Abby and Chris 10.06.2023

Frequently Asked Questions

Describe the best wedding that happened at Elms Barn?

All our weddings are completely different and wonderful in their own way, how could I possibly choose one! I find it is the personal touches that you end up remembering. Things like a personalised neon sign with the couples name or hand made cookies as favours.

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

To get your venue and date booked as soon as you can, so that you can enjoy the whole experience of finding all your other suppliers of choice with plenty of time. Regular contact with your Wedding Planner. Don't let something play on your mind because you think it is too small to bother your planner with. No question or worry is too small or silly this is your big day!

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

The Singing Waiters are a fabulous surprise, fun touch to any wedding - gets me every time! I have also had a couple, both heavily tattooed, set up a temporary tattoo station a bit like a sweet cart and on it were personalised tattoos of the couples faces. Super fun touch and perfect for that couple.
