Absolutely beautiful venue and amazing staff
The Night Yard is an incredibly beautiful venue and we are so happy we found it for our wedding! The staff are so friendly and put in a lot of time and effort to make the wedding day as perfect as it can possibly be. We got married at the Night Yard during the pandemic so it was a very difficult time to organize a wedding for everyone however the Night Yard staff were very understanding and did all they could to keep the day as special as it could be under the guidelines. I would definitely recommend the Night Yard to anyone looking for a beautiful relaxed charming wedding venue! Thank you to everyone for all their work!

The Night Yard - Everything I dreamt of and more
"The Night Yard is the most mesmerizing venue I’ve ever seen. From the moment I stepped out of my car I had the feeling of you know this is the one... The venue is so flexible with whatever needs and creations you may want to fill for your day. No matter what imagination and vision you have, the team will ensure your vision is delivered no matter what. The entire run up to my wedding day was everything I’ve dreamt of and more thanks to all at The Night Yard. To see the venue on the day of my wedding filled with all that I had chosen and to see the team at The Night Yard ensuring my day went smoothly was one of the most memorable moments I have ever had."
