Describe the best wedding that happened at The Barn at Upcote?
Every single wedding is different, that's the beauty of the space being a blank canvas! As such there's no one wedding that we would say is our favourite - just specific elements from different ones that were amazing - like the singing waiters, the wow factor florals or an emotional aisle walk with your bestie.
