Venue is simply stunning
Gildings Barns kindly offered the Riding for the Disabled Association the use of their beautiful barn where we held a party to celebrate '50 Years of RDA'. They couldn't have been more helpful and the venue is simply stunning.

Simply Our Dream Wedding
Sam and I got married at Gildings nearly 2 years ago and it was quite simply our dream wedding. The barns are absolutely stunning and the flexibility with the staff at Gildings Barns was just perfect. I wish I could do all over again!

Rustic Barn Wedding
I enjoy weaving elements of your chosen setting into the style of my writing, and these are generally relaxed, and intimate celebrations, with a warm and upbeat tone. Because of my experience in barn weddings, I can also run through things like lighting, acoustics, and the orchestration of the ceremony and those involved, making sure that there is sufficient space for all of the things you have planned. Beware the red brick flooring! As much as I think it is a fabulous feature, and completely charming, it is advisable to warn guests in advance that there will be gaps in the floor so to plan footwear accordingly. . .or hire an aisle runner!
