Beautiful Hidden Gem
We got married at this beautiful hidden gem just over a year ago now. From start to finish nothing was too much trouble. We fell in love with the place immediately and had the most perfect day. All of our guests still talk about how perfect this day was even now. Cat and the team are absolutely amazing and go above and beyond to make sure everything runs perfectly. As an animal lover and having our dogs as bridesmaids, the team sourced a large Pen so that at the end of the night the dogs could

Stunning venue and their amazing team!
Stunning venue and their amazing team made our wedding day phenomenal! Our wedding at Ashridge Great Barn was an absolute dream come true, and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue. From start to finish, Cat, Lynda, and the entire team were our guiding stars. Right from the early planning stages, Cat and Lynda were fantastic. They offered invaluable advice, pointed us in the right direction for suppliers, and helped us consider every detail to make our day truly special.

Great Celebrations at the Ashridge Barn
We couldn't have been happier with this wedding venue. Firstly, the atmosphere at The Barn and surrounding grounds are simply lovely. We had our ceremony in the Magic Circle. We wouldn't describe many outdoor spaces as cosy and intimate - but somehow these words spring to mind when thinking of this very unique space! From the Circle we had canapes and fizz on the lawn before heading down to the barn itself for the reception. The flow between these spaces was seamless, allowing for natural transitions from ceremony to nibbles to reception without any hiccups. The combination of the beautiful barn and gardens provided a picturesque backdrop for our celebrations as well as providing excellent opportunities for photos. Another great element of the barn is the team behind it. Coordination was top-notch. As well as being helpful, everyone was incredibly efficient and organized, taking a lot of stress out of the organisation and running of the wedding itself. We could relax and enjoy our day to the fullest. From initial planning to the final send-off, they were there every step of the way, making sure everything ran smoothly. Speaking of enjoyment, our wedding day was an absolute blast from start to finish. The staff at the barn went above and beyond to ensure that not only were we happy, but our guests were too. The evening festivities were particularly memorable, with the barn coming alive with laughter, dancing, and pure joy. Overall, our experience exceeded all expectations. If you're searching for a venue that offers a perfect blend of charm, efficiency, and fun, look no further. We wholeheartedly recommend The Ashridge Great Barn for your special day.
