Full Description
The 16th century, traditionally timbered Aisled Barn is decorated with unique Moore tapestries, and is set amongst beautiful sculpture gardens, which provide the perfect backdrop for your special day. For more intimate celebrations, the venue also offers a fantastic contemporary space with panoramic views in the architect-designed visitor centre, Dane Tree House. Venue hire includes exclusive use of the Aisled Barn or Dane Tree House spaces and shared use of the sculpture gardens and grounds with day visitors. Both spaces are licensed for civil wedding ceremonies and can be transformed into magical and atmospheric settings for wedding breakfasts. To really make the most of the grounds, dramatic marquees or tipis can make a stunning night-time statement and provide extra space for your guests to enjoy the surroundings.

Literally Perfect
Sarah and Jules couldn't have done more for us on the day to make sure it ran smoothly- they deeply cared and were so proactive on the day we didn't need to lift a finger. In the lead up they checked in at key points and they took care of all the loading in arrangements. The venue is stunning and all of their suggested suppliers are also excellent. Us and our guests had the best day- we think our parents now consider Sarah and Jules extended members of the family.
Response from the venue
Dear Hannah & Jon, It was a pleasure to work with you and your lovely family to ensure your day was exactly what you wanted it to be! Thank you for your kind words. Congratulations on a wonderful wedding, and best wishes for the future! We look forward to seeing you again for a visit soon! Best Wishes, Sarah & Jules

Exactly What We Were Looking For.
We had a small wedding in the Aisled Barn and it was an absolutely perfect night. Most of the planning had to be done from the US, but the venue team was easy to get in touch with and answered all my emails in a timely manner. We used two of their recommended suppliers (Vicki's Floral Designs and Copleys Catering) and were absolutely delighted with them as well. Everything went so smoothly, you'd think that all of them-- familiar vendors and new ones-- had been doing this every day for a century, and we had very little to do with it ourselves, trusting Sarah's and Jules's capable hands. The barn is stunning and it was the perfect size for our party; we had a slightly nontraditional ceremony and reception, and Sarah made sure everything was set up as we needed it to be. My strategy in choosing a venue was to pick one that was already pretty on its own, so as not to have to worry about decorations, and it paid off. Honestly the barn on its own is already lovely, but the events team dressed it up so nicely, it was really just absolutely stunning. Overall it was a very low-stress day, a beautiful ceremony, and I genuinely believe everyone who attended had a great time. (As an added bonus, the venue also obviously functions as an art gallery, so you know that the money you pay is going to a good cause.) (Also, the wedding date was actually 12/12/21 but the calendar function goes from Nov 2021 to Dec 2022 and is a required field lol)

Everyone just raved about the setting
We feel so very lucky to have found Henry Moore as a venue. It's such a beautiful and special place, full of natural, architectural and artistic beauty. Jules, Clare and the team there went out of their way from beginning to end to give us our dream wedding - helping us with all the planning and giving us the benefit of their deep experience. Because they do only a certain amount of weddings every year, we felt absolutely special to them as opposed to being in some wedding factory... A side benefit was that there are loads of wonderful small local suppliers (caterers, cake, flowers, etc) in the vicinity - all used to working at this beautiful historic location - and all at prices that pale compared to London. We had guests from all over the world and everyone just raved about the setting and the sophistication of the event. Just the perfect venue!

You made us feel so welcome... You were always there but never intrusive - quite a skill!
A huge thank you from everything you did to make Sophie and Steve's wedding such a wonderful occasion. From the moment we met you on the Friday, we know we were in safe hands. You made us feel so welcome and your attention to detail was amazing. It certainly helped us relax and just enjoy all the celebrations know you have everything in hand. we realise what long days you work when you have a wedding to coordinate. At no time did you stop smiling and making us feel special. Sophie and Steve were so happy and relaxed on their special day. Everything went smoothly and you did all you had to do with the minimum of fuss. You were always there but never intrusive - quite a skill! We can't thank you enough for helping to create many special memories.

the support was unwavering and they catered to us
Weddings might inherently be a great day but what made it the most special day of our lives was down to the unique, beautiful Henry Moore venue as well as all the support Jules, Sarah and the team gave to us. Having a mixture of cultures in our wedding, we had a few things outside the norm but as mentioned, the support was unwavering and they catered to us amazingly. I couldn't recommend this venue and Jules/Sarah, highly enough. They also gave recommendations for photographers and so forth, which proved to be fantastic and are things we will cherish forever. Thanks Sunny

Despite not having our wedding yet
Despite not having our wedding yet I wanted to leave a review to mention how supportive and fantastic Jules and her team have been. Throughout the difficulty and uncertainly that Covid19 has caused myself and many other couples, Jules has always been on the end of the phone and has been an amazing support and help throughout, with us every step of the way. We cannot wait to eventually be able to get married at this beautiful venue! Much Love, Amelia
