If you are looking for a magical unique relaxed wedding venue, that you can flex up or down as much as your imagination (and budget) allows, then this is THE PLACE for you!
We first talked to Hillfields before lockdown. But didn't even get to visit before the world changed for 18 months. We then contacted them again in early 2021 asking about availability etc. There was an opening for 11th September so we bit the bullet and booked it, unseen. When we were finally allowed to visit (in April when lockdown eased) we were blown away with the barn at Hillfields and the relaxed feel of the place which was perfect for us. We wanted our dog and my horse to join us, and this place let us do that. But it isn't just for animal lovers!
Becky our Wedding Coordinator was brilliant from day one up until the day after our wedding that we had to leave. We did a lot of the wedding planning and setting up ourselves, as well as organising our own catering flowers etc, but Becky can help with that if required. In less than 6 months we planned, set up and had the wedding day of our dreams and it was made possible by everyone at Hillfields. There were no silly rules given to us, no limitations as to what we wanted to do and no one telling us we HAD to us certain suppliers, which is quite rare with wedding venues.
We, including our family and friends, stayed in the lovely new accommodation they have been this year, our horse stayed in the stables and our dog also stayed with us, but had someone to look after her throughout the day when the wedding got too much!
The wedding barn doesn't need a lot of decoration, but there you can use their stock of decorations they have or bring in your own. Its a special blank canvas, that you can make your own and has plenty of space for all guests of all ages. Highlights include the beer donkey who made an appearance, the large lawn that we had our blessing on (can get married in the barn, but this wasn't possible due to availability of registrar), lots of space to mingle, ability to bring in our own wine and drinks without paying excessive fees, a great dance floor and just brilliant people working at Hillfields who made it even more special!
We had the BEST DAY and Hillfields is such an amazing venue which every one of our guests were blown away with, it’s a magical place. If making your wedding bespoke to you is what you want, then this is the place. I just wish we could go back and do it all over again!
Thank you to everyone at Hillfields for making our friends and family so welcome as well as looking after our four legged family too! 🥰
