Winters Tale Country Barn Full Description
A tranquil retreat just outside Buckingham, Winters Tale Country Barn is a historic wedding venue set in the rolling countryside of North Buckinghamshire. Licensed for civil ceremonies, this serene setting offers a choice of picturesque locations and stylish rustic features. Tucked away in the grounds of a 17th-century farmhouse, you can enjoy a down-to-earth celebration with just the right amount of grandeur. Winters Tale Country Barn is steeped in beauty, from the surrounding country gardens to the plush interiors of the main setting. The Secret Gardens beckons photographers from the moment of arrival, with its water feature and whimsical swing. Swept up by vibrant blooms, this is the ideal space for an outdoor session or perhaps an open-air romantic ceremony. Of course, the barn site is the jewel of the venue, boasting vaulted ceilings and dark wooden features that stay true to its centuries-old roots. In this bright, open space, up to 120 guests can enjoy a wedding breakfast before being joined by an additional 80 for a reception under twinkling fairy lights. On the ground floor, a well-stocked bar will keep the guests lively and happy, while the cocktail bar on the gallery invites you to relax in the nearby cosy snug. The large silk-lined marquee adjacent to the barn is a surprisingly sophisticated space with chandeliers and festoon lighting. This light-filled blank canvas makes for a wonderful additional space for drinks, dining, or late-evening entertainment. Close by, you will find a choice of two premier accommodations, including the Ember Eve Barn. This delightfully vintage suite is perfect for the wedding night with its four-poster bed, Victorian slipper bath and private balcony.

Myself and my husband would like to say a huge thank you to Winter’s Tale for making our big day so magical. The communication and support of the wedding coordinators and all the staff was faultless. They went above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly. I never had to worry about a thing on the day. The weather was miserable, but I barely remember that, instead I remember how much my cheeks ached from smiling. We are so grateful and can’t thank you all enough. We knew from our 1st visit

Simply Jaw Dropping
A STUNNING FROSTY WINTER SETTING FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL WINTERS TALE COUNTRY BARN WEDDING Winters Tale Country Barn Wedding – Fleur & Adam. Having photographed a wedding on the hottest day of the year, it was now my turn to photograph a wedding on the coldest day of the year. Driving in (carefully) to the barn, the beauty of the frozen landscapes as I approached the aptly named Winters Tale country Barn was simply jaw dropping, Marcus Charter

Can't thank the team enough
We got married at Winters Tale Country Barn last month. We had the most amazing day we could have asked for. The venue is stunning and the staff are all so lovely. The setting is beautiful, the barn is modern yet traditional at the same time and there are rooms you can stay in the night before and on the night of the wedding. The venue is family run which made the experience feel even more personal. We can’t thank the team enough!

Best day of our lives
We are so grateful for Christine, Gail, Caroline and the team. We fell in love with the venue from the second we walked in. The set up meant that all our guests were able to enjoy the day and mix in a lovely space that catered for everyone. Everything was absolutely perfectly coordinated and the whole day ran so smoothly. We really couldn't have asked for more. There wasn't a moment of our day that wasn't perfect and we will always be grateful for giving us the best day of our lives. Thank you x

The day went seamlessly
We had our ceremony and reception here in September 2022, and the day went seamlessly. The staff were so helpful and professional. Everyone told us it was a stunning venue and they hadn't seen anything like it. I can't thank everyone at the venue enough.
