The most romantic country wedding venue. Our weddings offer the exclusive hire of the entire estate. You will have exclusive hire from 12:00 p.m. the day before the wedding, giving you a whole day to prepare the venue allowing you to relax that night knowing the venue is exactly as you had dreamt.

The best day we could ever ask for
There are not enough words to describe how happy I was with our wedding experience at white dove barns. We booked In 2018 after we visited once and fell in love with the venue. We were meant to get married originally in 2020 but unfortunately due to the pandemic we postponed twice over the next 2 years. Greg and his team were very understanding and always kept in touch over that time. Finally our day came, Spencer our Co-ordinate and Stuart our chef could not have been more helpful. From the Friday we arrived the kind words, offers of help and keeping me calm. Nothing was ever too much to ask. The food was outstanding and all of our guests really enjoyed it. Spencer made sure everything was so organised and he really went above and beyond! The accommodation was stunning. Our guests who stayed the whole weekend could not fault it. The cleanliness of all the rooms were on point. Also Dawn behind the bar was so attentive, she made sure we had all of our favourite drinks before the wedding so she was fully stocked up! My wedding day was more I could ever imagined and if it wasn’t for having such a perfect venue and team to have worked with us it would not of been the same. So Thankyou white dove!!! All this time waiting was well worth it.

Perfect
We had the most wonderful day and wouldn't want to change a thing. Everyone was so friendly and helpful it really made the entire process stress free, the venue was stunning, the staff were friendly and the accommodation was beautiful. The food was first class, the pizza package the evening before, the canapes, the wedding breakfast, evening food and even the breakfast the next morning was all incredible. All of our guests said 'what a beautiful venue' and some had never even heard of the county before! If there was only one slightly negative point, it was that communication was a little slow sometimes, but it really didn't impact the process or the day at all.

Everything we could have dreamed of.
We got married at White Dove Barns last month. We booked the venue 2 years ago along with my florist Lynsey from Dear Luna. About 2 months before our wedding Lynsey had called me to give me the most amazing news that she was also not only doing my flowers but will be co ordinating my entire wedding. I already knew she was amazing at this point so knowing she was going to be there all day completely took all the stress away from us. To say she is amazing is an understatement. My brother decided to surprise me all the way from Australia, after thinking he wasn’t going to be there and not seeing him for 10years. They got in touch with Lynsey and she made the hole thing possible. We will be forever grateful for the most magical day. Not only would I recommend this beautiful venue, Lynsey needs to be at the top of you list for flowers and coordinating. You made all our dreams come true xxx

An amazing venue, team, creating the perfect wedding for us!
After suffering 2 Covid cancellation’s from our original wedding date in 2020, we finally wed on the 18 April 2022 at this amazing picturesque location. Nothing was ever too much trouble to reorganise with the WDB team and We had the most amazing weekend. We took advantage of the long Easter weekend where our wedding theme was “chilled” and we had the most relaxed 3 days. The venue allowed us complete personalisation, freedom and control of our wedding and we accomplished all of our dreams. We started the Friday night with a pre-wedding live band hosted outside in a marquee with all of our guests staying in the accommodation for the 2 nights, which was comfortable and spacious. The wedding day went like clockwork, the WDB team seamlessly ran our event and we had everything covered. On the Sunday, we had breakfast in the Venus before wishing all our guests farewell. The food was amazing all weekend and we were all thoroughly spoilt by the Chef Stuart’s skills. We cannot thank the Greg, Spencer, Lynsey and the team at WDB enough for our wedding weekend

An amazing day
Everything at WDB is exactly as it should be for a wedding. The venue is beautiful, the barn stunning, the food incredible and the coordination so smooth and easy. We had to postpone due to the pandemic, and this was done without hesitation or any additional costings. There have been some staff changes however these have only been positive in regards to our wedding. Changes were accommodated and all our questions answered, even when I was probably incredibly annoying towards the end of planning! The day ran so smoothly and all my guests have commented on how intimate, beautiful and well organised it all felt to be involved in. The accommodation being available and the recommended pub for night before were all lovely touches and the cocktail tap was a huge hit! I can’t wait for our photos back to see just how stunning it all looked together. The biggest thank you for making an already special day extraordinary.

Everything we could have wished for and more!
Well where do we start! I think it’s got to be with the biggest thank you possible to Spencer, Stuart and the team at White Dove Barns. We booked our wedding with White Dove Barns in 2018 for 2020, and due to COVID, had to postpone this to 2021. They were so supportive during the postponement, and in early 2021 we continued to plan for our new date together. We visited the venue quite a few times before the big day and went through all the details to make sure we were happy with them. Spencer was so accommodating to whatever we wanted. Our family arrived the day before the wedding and we had a buffet in Dove Barn as a casual get together as everyone had travelled a long way. The food was amazing, thank you Stuart. On the wedding day, Spencer and the team were amazing. Everyone commented on how well run the day was, how amazing the food was and what a beautiful venue it is! So in summary, thank you Spencer, Stuart and the team for giving us the most amazing few days. It was all we had wished for and more!
