Barns are an increasingly popular choice for weddings. They’re spacious without being too big, intimate without being too small, and full of charm and character with many unique features. I’ve picked out five unusual barn wedding venues…

Wasing Park in Berkshire

Set within 4,000 acres of a private estate in Berkshire, Wasing Park is a barn wedding venue like no other. The barn’s castle-like features and crenelated walls provide a stunning backdrop for photos and bring a fairytale element to every wedding.

Inside, the Castle Barn can seat up to 150 guests for dining in contemporary and stylish surroundings. A licensed venue, civil ceremonies can take place in Wasing Park’s light and contemporary Garden Room or outside in the exquisite hand-painted Victorian Summerhouse.

Launton Tythe Barn in Oxfordshire

Located in Oxfordshire, Launton Tythe Barn has been exquisitely restored using the finest quality authentic materials, and is one of the last few remaining medieval thatched tithe barns in Britain. The barn’s spacious interior features exposed wooden beams and brick, and can seat up to 150 guests for dining and 120 for a ceremony.

Bassmead Manor Barns in Cambridgeshire

This exciting wedding barn has undergone major redevelopment to become one of Cambridgeshire’s most stunning wedding venues. High spec furnishings and stylish decor have enhanced the existing facilities at this much-loved barn.

It’s location within a medieval moat makes Bassmead Manor Barns a truly unique and exceptional barn wedding venue. The barn is licensed for ceremonies, and there is luxurious accommodation on site for the wedding couple, family and friends.

Clock Barn in Hampshire

Set on a pretty, working farm in Hampshire, Clock Barn is the epitome of a beautiful rustic wedding barn. With all the mod cons you would need on your wedding day, Clock Barn continues to be lovingly maintained and bursts with charm and character.

Inside, Clock barn is spacious, seating up to 192 guests for dining and civil ceremonies. There are many spaces inside and out to enjoy throughout the day, but the distinctive and pretty thatched Clock Tower at the barn’s entrance continues to be a talking point amongst guests.

Combe Manor in Berkshire

If you’re looking to add a medieval theme or just a pinch of history to your wedding day then Combe Manor is a superb choice. The unusual Great Barns have an impressive medieval feel created by the huge decorative tapestries which adorn the walls.

The venue can seat up to 200 guests for dining, perhaps banquet style so as to maintain the medieval theme. In keeping with the barn’s medieval style, a pretty Grade I Norman church is only meters away, where it may be possible to have a ceremony.
