The Perfect Venue
We had the most perfect day here and wish we could do it all over again! The venue is beautiful and the staff are amazing, so professional and couldn’t do enough for us. Lovely addition of a bridal suite, meaning you can stay on site the night of your wedding. Really responsive to messages leading up to the day which meant my wedding anxiety was kept at bay! Book Upcote, you won’t regret it

Amazing day!
Hello All! I just wanted to send you a quick message to say thank you so so so much for everything you have done for T and I. We had the most amazing day on Friday and this was thanks to you, our amazing venue! You went over and beyond what was expected and put up with me not knowing anything, and you some how managed to pick my ideas together. You allowed us to do some super fun things, that no doubt, other venues would have been a straight up no. You ensured everything ran so smoothly and everything went perfectly. We are both so grateful for everything that you did for us, it truly means so much to us. I could go on and on for ages about how grateful we are and how amazing you made the day, but I won’t haha. Thank you so much for everything, I’m sure Charlotte will send you some pictures but I would be more than happy to send you some as well. Once again thank you so much, please let me know if there is anything I can do, or if you want me to leave a review (and if so where!) Thank you so much!

100% recommend
I just wanted to email you to thank you again for all the help as well (as the most beautiful surroundings) on our wedding day in September. You made everything so easy and relaxed, which is just what we wanted and envisaged. Your team were all so friendly at every stage and always gave great advice as well as asked really helpful questions to guide us in the right way. Thank you again for helping us to create the most perfect day! I've attached a few pics of the barn from the photographer (Rob Tarren) which I thought might be nice for you to see. If you'd like any reviews posted anywhere, please let me know, as I would 100% recommend!

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Please do not sweat the small stuff - that is what we are here for! We are 100% behind you and appreciate every detail big or small is important to you. "We are both utter control freaks but felt confident our day was in safe hands and were able to relax and enjoy our special day." V&J

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

There are so many to choose from, though we do love how unique you can be with your wedding favours. From Tunnocks Teacakes to hand picked pebbles from the beach where they got engaged! It is sometimes all about the little details that represent your personalities.

What part of your business are you most proud of?
