Full Description
Whether you are planning an intimate civil ceremony, or a more lavish, opulent reception, Winters Barns offers versatile function rooms to accommodate all your requirements. The L-shaped barns, with the ceremony room at one end and the reception room at the other, mean that you can enjoy a wedding at the venue whatever the weather. The ceremony room in the smaller section of the two barns can seat up to 150 guests, while the reception room seats up to 200. After the ceremony, while you are enjoying your drinks reception, we will clear the ceremony room to make way for the couple’s first dance and the party can really get started! We believe a wedding should remain completely private and we limit ourselves to one wedding each day. You can be assured of getting our personal and individual attention without any distractions.

We had the perfect day!
We honestly can't thank you all enough for everything you have done since we booked, postponed and in weeks and days before our day to make our wedding day so special. We had the perfect day. The venue looked absolutely beautiful and everything went so well because of your organisation and commitment. Thank you to the bar staff who were just great throughout and ensured our guests were truly enjoying themselves. Special thank you to the barman who made me the best mojito I've ever had. Lizzie was our wedding coordinator and she was just amazing! She went above and beyond to accommodate our needs and ensure our family and friends were happy and having a lovely day. Thank you lizzie for all your hard work, without you we wouldn't have had the BEST day of our lives. We have no regrets choosing we Winters Barns to marry and we wish we could do it all again.

Really is a perfect venue!
We just wanted to say the biggest thank you to all of you but especially Sally for helping us have the most perfect wedding day yesterday. You have all been exceptional throughout this pandemic and you have really solidified the reason why we chose you as a venue with your fantastic care and support for your couples. Sally was absolutely brilliant at our wedding yesterday. She made everything feel perfect and we felt so fortunate to have her as our wedding coordinator. She put us all at ease and made it feel like a wedding should feel even with the restrictions. She supported us every step of the way and completely kept us in the loop with any changes that needed to be made. Sally went above and beyond with the care she showed not only to us but also our guests and all of us couldn’t speak highly enough about her! Also a big thank you to John who did a fantastic job of keeping the drinks coming but also again putting us all at ease and giving us a really enjoyable day. He was brilliant with supporting us and making sure the day ran smoothly. You really are a perfect venue and we cannot wait to celebrate our wedding party with you next year.

Will be recommending to everyone!
We wanted to express our complete gratitude for everything you have done for us not just in this past week but the last two years of us planning our wedding. When we were first starting to plan our wedding, we didn't really know what we were doing, one thing we did know is we wanted a barn in Kent, a pretty broad spectrum. We looked at a few options but none of them felt like us, then we turned up on a Rainy Saturday in January 2018 and we had a feeling instantly we had found the perfect place for us and our family to celebrate. From then on we felt 100% looked after, whenever we had a question you were there to answer it and put our minds at ease and calm us down. When the pandemic first hit, we were terrified we wouldn't be able to have our day your updates on your website provided us with calmness and hope that we would be able do something. When we first decided to go ahead with 30, you explained everything to us and talked us through our new day and how it would just as if not even more special than originally planned and it was everything we wanted it to be and more. Then last week you helped us re-organise everything in the space of 24 hours. When we spoke to Lizzie about the possibility of moving it forwards a week she said "We can do it if you can do it" and then we had a mission and a plan (that Gemma loves). We never would of had the confidence to do what we did without your support. We hope our wedding will set a benchmark for any couples who are on the fence about going ahead with a smaller wedding because it can be a truly intimate day which right now is very much appreciated. When we were deciding whether to go inside or outside we felt fully supported by Lizzie and were able to make the choice up until the wire and we are so happy we were able to have the wedding outside and beat the rain. The truth is, there are no words to fully express how thankful we are to you all, our day wouldn't been half the day it was without you all, we felt fully looked after in a way we couldn't of dreamed of. Lizzie, we would like to thank you for always being positive with us and keeping us happy throughout what was a really stressful time. On Saturday morning you had a positive energy that was felt by everyone, you were a constant source of calm for us and nothing ever felt like to much. Our guests had the best time on Saturday and all guests watching on the live stream commented on how well organised the day was and how stunning the barns looked, the day exceeded everyones expectations they couldn't quite believe we re-arranged in a week. Although not how we planned we had the most fantastic day and wouldn't of wanted it any other way, we just wanted to get married and we did it in the best place with the best people. We will be sure to send you pictures from the day and will be recommending you to everyone! Thank you doesn't seem enough but we are eternally grateful to you all for helping us create our dream day.
