Stunning venue powered by excellent team!
We got married at Smeetham Hall Barn on the 29th June 2024, but our relationship with Sophie and Victoria (and Bridget) goes back to 2022 when we saw how amazing the venue was. Leading up to the day, visits were always welcomed, no question was too small and no detail was left unturned. We had what I would describe as the perfect day which could not have happened without the team. The venue looked stunning in the sun and we would absolutely recommend getting married here.

The best day
We can’t thank Smeetham Hall enough, we had the most amazing day in the most beautiful grounds. From the very beginning all the team was so helpful but especially on the week leading up to the day. They put us completely at ease and I had every confidence that it would run smoothly. The barn itself is beautiful and the gardens so well maintained. All our guests said the same too Highly recommend!

Everything we could’ve dreamt of and more!
Not only is this venue absolutely gorgeous, the staff are next level in terms of organisation, support, empathy and love! We originally planned our day with Bridget who exudes warmth and maternal energy and made us feel so at ease, and then when she passed the reigns to Victoria and Tom the transition was seamless and made us feel so confident in the lead up to our big day! No question was too silly, no viewings too many and they helped us plan everything down to the last detail including suppliers, how we’d organise getting both brides into the venue without seeing each other, and helping us plan for the multiple family members who used wheelchairs! I’m over the moon to say that Smeetham Hall Barn and its incredible staff went above and beyond to make the day fully disability friendly, and my (now) Mother in Law in the late stages of Huntington’s Disease was able to join us and love every minute thanks to the generosity and accessibility given by the staff! We spent the whole day in awe of the gorgeous venue, and just felt so loved, supported and cared for throughout the entire lead up and day of. The added bonus of being able to set up the day before and pack up the day after the ceremony was perfect for two anxious people like my wife and I, and it meant we could fully relax on the day without rushing round like mad! I can’t thank Victoria, Tom, Sophie and Bridget enough for their incredible help and letting us share our special day in their safe hands! Thank you so much!!!

Our dream wedding came true
Smeetham Hall Barn was the first venue we looked at when we got engaged. We immediately fell in love with the surroundings and how welcoming Bridget and Sophie were. They were so helpful along the way and helping us choose the right suppliers. Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and everyone still talks about it days later.

Incredible venue
Smeetham Hall Barn was the most magical venue for our winter wedding. The whole team made everything effortless for us and were always there when we needed them. I cannot express in words how great they are and what an amazing day we had. Everybody went above and beyond to make our day so special.
