Full Description
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. Our guests depart the morning after the wedding at 12 p.m. White Dove Barns can cater for both large and small weddings for a range of budgets. Our newly converted Grade II listed thatched barn can hold 128 guests for both the ceremony and wedding breakfast, but can equally suit smaller, more intimate receptions of 60 guests.

Truly amazing team
We booked our wedding at white dove barns back in October 2018 as we fell inlove with every corner of not only the venue itself but the outstanding accommodation and grounds too. (Utterly stunning) We spent many months planning our perfect day with Alison, Spencer and Greg on hand for every little question/query and even though we found communication slow at times nothing was ever to much trouble. Fast forward to 2020 and covid hit the UK you can imagine the stress the team at white dove barns were put under with all their spring/summer weddings (our wedding wasn’t until October) however we sadly received some life changing news which meant our personal circumstances changed and we were forced in to the decision of bringing our wedding forward in a time where all other weddings were being postponed due to government restrictions. Greg and his team spent weeks (months) assisting us back and forth with our plans which would change daily at times due to the covid restrictions and our personal circumstances but the team went absolutely above and beyond to ensure that we still had our perfect day with our loved ones there to see! The level of compassion and support we received was second to none, we couldn’t recommend white doves barns enough. Any business can provide a good service when everything is going smoothly but it is when a business is tested that you really see the level of service they provide and we honestly believe the circumstances could not have been any more difficult for ourselves and for the team at white dove barns yet they put us first. We are so grateful for everything the team done for us, we had the most perfect ceremony which really could not have gone ahead without Greg’s help not to mention how beautifully the team dressed the barn for our ceremony without us having to lift a finger. Thank you! Mr & Mrs B

Best day ever!
We had the best day of our lives getting married at this venue in March 2020. The setting, food, staff and coordination on the day were 100% perfect. We could not recommend this place to get married enough. Thank you all for everything.

Fantastic day
We had a fantastic day at White Dove Barns, the buildings flowed perfectly for each section of the day. The food really was excellent, all perfectly cooked, exactly as the trial tasting and we received so many compliments from guests. We were spolit for choice for photo opportunities throughout the gorgeous grounds. For us having ample accommodation on site was so important too, meaning we could extend the festivities. The team were friendly, flexible and offered advice where needed. Thank you

An amazing day
The staff at White Dove were professional, helpful and friendly. They made us feel welcome and nothing was a problem. The day ran so smoothly, they catered for every need and made both of us feel at ease. They ensured our day went as planned and everyone had a fantastic time. Spencer and Allison were always on hand throughout the day. The venue and accommodation were excellent and it was a perfect setting for the weekend. We had an amazing day. Thank you .

Helpful, accommodating and understanding. Ace!
We had a wonderful wedding, full credit to the team at White Dove barns. When we initially booked we went through family trauma and they were very understanding, helpful, and accommodating. On the day and in the run up they were very organised, helpful and genuinely cared about us having a perfect day. The food and presentation of the venue was perfect. We didn’t realise that the team had changed to Spencer and Alison until near the day and we were unsure of how that would be but they were ace!
