Thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts...
We’d just like to say thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts for such an incredible day. The weather certainly played its part but so did every single one of you at the venue. The last-minute changes 24-hours before the main event were a bit stressful but you all worked so hard to make it happen and it turned out to be such a blessing in disguise. Josh - thank you for all your help on the build-up; especially the quick turnaround the day before - and for working so hard on the day.

You all made our day so special...
To all of the Monkton Barn team, Thank you for all your support in planning our big day! You all made our day so special. We had a bit of a dramatic start to the day but you were all so attentive and supportive, which kept me as the bride, very calm. Thank you to the chef and his team for the absolutely fantastic food! We have had so many compliments from our guests - who loved both the style and flavours. It was a beautiful day! Love - Katie & Aidan

Frequently Asked Questions

Describe the best wedding that happened at Monkton Barn?

A civil ceremony in the barn, then across to the meadown for a village-fete styled reception with garden games, canapés and a saxophonist. This was followed by an Italian-themed marquee wedding breakfast. In the evening, a total of 140 guests returned to the meadow for a full-on festival themed party, including a big top marquee and staging for not just one, but 4 bands who performed over the course of the night! The event finished with fabulous fireworks, with many guests camping/glamping (including a hearty breakfast the following morning)! It was a truly brilliant and fun event to be part of.
