We offer the historic Tithe Barn and gardens on an exclusive use basis, for you and your guests, with no one else around. As you approach up the tree lined avenue, past the horses and the village cricket pitch, you are met by the impressive gates to the Manor and enter into a haven of tranquility with goldfish and lilies on the pond and marvel at the subtle majesty of our Medieval Grade II* Listed Tithe Barn. Our site is simply spaceous, so spaceous, like something from a Thomas Hardy novel.
St. Peter's church is within walking distance should you want a traditional service or we are licensed for relaxed weddings inside and out. We're so relaxed, you can do it all yourself, or we can guide and provide depending on the time you have to plan. Our wonderful elevated stone Summerhouse within the walled garden is licensed for wedding ceremonies, as is the main hall of the barn with its wooden polished floor. Marry in the gardens, drink and celebrate in our English Country Garden, surrounded by the scent of honeysuckle and lavender; then dine and dance under our impressive vaulted ceiling. The walled garden lawn lends itself perfectly to a marquee or tipi if you wanted a touch of something different. New to weddings, this is a rare opportunity.
We have accommodation for the wedding party on site in The Lodge and Manor Stables, plenty of parking and a list of tried and tested brilliant suppliers to put together the best day of your lives. Summer weddings in the gardens or winter weddings by the fireplace, we have got it covered. Large (120 -250) or small guest numbers (15-30), we can create just the right ambience for you. Hinton St Mary sits on the River Stour, is surrounded by rolling countryside and offers the perfect wedding weekend retreat. New to weddings, our introductory prices are keen, saving you that extra bit, to spend on yourselves.
