The best day
The day couldn’t have been any more perfect and it’s all down to the incredible team at Kimbridge barn. From the most stress free planning of the day, the evening of food and wine tasting, to the wedding day itself - the whole process was seamless and just perfect. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to properly put into words our thanks for you guys.

Best day of our lives
Thank you so so much for hosting us on Saturday, and everything you did in the planning. We had the best day of our lives and so much of it was down to you all at Kimbridge. The venue itself was stunning, and better than we ever possibly imagined it could be! Grainne, Becky and Helen - thank you for making everything so easy for us in the build up. We really felt so reassured that you had every detail noted and taken care of for us. Thank you for putting up with possibly the most demanding bride (and father of the bride…!) ever and for accommodating us with extending the music license and letting us take over the whole place! Thank you to Kris, Gina and all those who were there on Saturday keeping us calm and making it happen around us. I don’t underestimate the level of problem solving you all would have had to do on the day (from impromptu speeches, to getting the barn turned around at record speed, and giving us a fresh dinner when our photographer chose a poorly timed moment for “golden hour” shots…!) Again, we felt in such safe hands and so relaxed that everything was taken care of so seamlessly. So many of our guests have commented on how attentive and on the ball everyone was on the night - from drinks refills to canapé service. Certainly no one had an empty glass! Also, a special mention to all of those in the kitchen who we never got the chance to see. One of the main reasons we chose Kimbridge was because you don’t just offer standard wedding food, and you certainly didn’t disappoint. Again, our guests have told us it was some of the best food they have eaten (let alone wedding food), 2 have taken photos of the canapé menus to show caterers at their own weddings and my Nan won’t stop talking about the petit fours….! Thank you (and Gina) for accommodating our multiple trips for canapé tastings - we just enjoyed them so much!! There is so much more I could say, but realise this is becoming quite long so I’ll stop here! We really cannot recommend you all enough. I’m sure we’ll see you again soon! All the best, Emily and Steff

We were absolutely blown away
“We wanted to send you a really big thank you. Thank you for making our day so so special. We were absolutely blown away by how well we were looked after! Thank you for your thoughtfulness; for thinking of everything, for making us feel so special, and this goes for everything leading up to the wedding day, as you have all been so supportive from the moment we booked our wedding with you, you've really made us feel part of the Kimbridge family, and that is exactly what we wanted from our venue, somewhere where we felt like we weren't just another wedding. Our guests all had a brilliant time and have been very complimentary about Kimbridge, the incredible service and how delicious the food was!”

The perfect venue
We were one of the first couples to book a wedding at the newly refurbished Kimbridge Barn, back in 2019. From the first tour and meeting, the team at Kimbridge were first class. Due to the pandemic, like so many couples, we had to postpone by a year and Kimbridge were so incredibly accommodating and made things so easy. On the actual day itself, the venue looked stunning, the food and service was incredible and the ambience of Kimbridge fitted in perfectly with our day. The best thing is that Kimbridge adapted for you. Whatever you envisioned and pictured for your day, Kimbridge would make happen. With our wedding, Kimbridge certainly made it happen! The best wedding venue in the South!

Our wedding day
We had a wonderful experience at Kimbridge throughout the whole wedding, from preparation to the end of the actual day everyone was delightful to work with and helped us get exactly what we wanted. The venue is incredible and their staff are amazing. The menu options were delicious, the food tasting was still a highlight of our whole preparation. On the day everything was sorted for us professionally and effectively. We look forward to going back to Kimbridge Barn to reminisce for many years to come.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Emma and Jake, with many years of planning, many hours of discussing their wedding with our events team, many doggy biscuits eaten by Bramble their dog, we really took time to ensure all the details were covered – there was surprises for the bride (from the groom) surprises for the groom (from the bride) and surprises for the guests too – it took hours of planning but all the surprises kept the guests and couple on their toes throughout the day and made it extra special party to celebrate the wedding!
