We are so happy we chose Symondsbury
I (we!), just wanted to drop you a message to say just how amazing everything went on Saturday. The barn looked beautiful, the bar staff were excellent, and all-round a great day was had by all! Sarah - you were an absolute star. You really were. You kept me calm, made sure everything flowed, did my buttonhole flower thing! and just were fantastic. We are so happy we chose Symondsbury for the wedding, and I pretty much cry everytime I think about it, or see a new photo. Thanks again for all you did!

I don't think we could have ever dreamt of a more perfect day
We were married at the Tithe Barn in Symondsbury on 5th May 2018, and I don’t think we could have ever dreamt of a more perfect day. The venue itself is just stunning and we decorated it simply with flowers and fairy lights. We were lucky as the sun shone all day and we were also able to enjoy the outside space all day and into the evening. The suppliers they use and recommend and incredible too; our food was delicious and the decorations were spot on. Amy and the team in the build up and during the weekend couldn’t have made it any easier and stress free. They know exactly what they’re doing and everything ran like clockwork with smiley happy faces too. We didn’t worry about a thing and simply enjoyed the most perfect day. Thank you so much Amy and the whole team; it really was everything we imagined and more

We could never single one out! All our wedding's here are so different and personal to each couple!

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

Relax! Wedding planning can be really stressful and so the best tip we can offer would be to try to enjoy every aspect of it and don't get too caught up in small details.The day itself will fly by so it's important to spend time with your family and friends and take it all in.

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

We've seen loads of amazing personal touches including home-made honey from the couples father's bee hive as wedding favours, hand made felt animals for each table, old family wedding photo's as table markers and so many more unique ideas.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, Personal, Rustic, Flexible, Fun

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Colmer's Hill is a local landmark which makes an incredible back drop for wedding photos - really dramatic and beautiful. We also have an abundance of wild flowers around the venue depending on the time of year.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

That would be telling!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Our catering partners offer a huge range so it would be hard to pick but we're mad about their tapas options.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

We have a long let period giving our couples the entire day before to decorate and set up with no time pressure ensuring they are relaxed and can enjoy the process.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

We love the flexibility we're able to offer, couples are able to really make the Barn their own with decorations and personal touches.
