Describe the best wedding that happened at The Northorpe Barn?
We love a wedding that includes a furry friend, we've had dogs attend and even a horse! The best weddings are those where the happy couple are so relaxed and happy that they throw themselves on the dancefloor at the end of the day with their families and friends, and have the time of their lives.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
There is no such thing as a daft question. Ask us absolutely anything, each wedding here is personal and different, we don't have a set way of doing things, you are all different and we will make sure you get the wedding that you want (and deserve)
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
We have had everything from a Harry potter themed wedding to a carnival wedding with fairground rides in our courtyard and lots of colours in the barn. We have loved every single one! - we especially love the weddings where ceremony guests are invited to sit where they like as they are loved equally by the couple, that makes the guests feel really special.
