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.

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!

It truly was the best day of our lives
From the moment we arrived at White Dove Barns we knew that it was our dream wedding venue: from their characterful and stunning facilities, the outstanding location and warm and welcoming staff. The food was above and beyond our expectations and Stuart the chef and his team could not have been more accommodating in meeting our preferences and dietary requirements. Many of our guests commented saying it was the best wedding food that they have ever had. Spencer and his team struck a fine balance perfectly, between being available to help and letting us do our own thing. The accommodation was excellent and we were so happy to find a venue to sleep so many in such comfort and quality. It goes without saying the bridal sweet was perfect, especially the natural lighting to aid your make up artist. The bed in the bridal sweet was so comfortable we now want to buy a new bed!!! The Dove Barn is a fantastic facility to host a welcome party the evening before your wedding for guests. We would highly recommend this as it allowed all of our guests to get to know each other before the big day. The wedding barn and ceremony areas make for a beautiful setting, so much so that we decided to tone down the decoration as the barn speaks for its self. Overall an outstanding wedding venue with so much adaptability and quality. We honestly wouldn’t change a thing about our day. With all our love and future wishes to brides and grooms Mr and Mrs Findlay x

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
