TOP 10 BARN WEDDING VENUES IN OXFORDSHIRE

There is no denying that there is something very romantic and laid back about having your wedding in a barn. They inspire the couple looking for a romantic rustic look (natural colour palette, wild grasses and foliage, bare wooden tables and muted colours) and also the creative couple inspired by a boho style (free spirited take on the traditional wedding, wild flowers with all the colours, natural head pieces, mis-matched rugs possibly for an isle, outdoor seating with blankets, all with touches of the luxury) Here are my top ten barn wedding venues Oxfordshire…

1. SOHO FARMHOUSE

Number one has to be Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire.  This is one of my dream wedding venues and I’m so excited I get to shoot a wedding here this summer!!  Soho Farmhouse has a variety of barns to choose from, so can cater from the small and intimate weddings to the big and fancy ones.  The farm has so many gorgeous settings and the whole vibe is super relaxed.

2. CASWELL HOUSE

I have a strong connection to Caswell House as it was here I shot my very first wedding.  Caswell House is a 15th Century manor house set in the heart of Oxfordshire and surround in the most stunning grounds.  It has a renovated medieval barn for your wedding and comes with renovated on-site accommodation (which is a big plus in my books!

3. LAINS BARN

Lains Barn in Oxfordshire pride themselves on their bespoke approach.  They  offer mix-and-match food and drink menus, indoor and outdoor ceremonies, and customisable room layout to turn your vision into a reality. [Take a peek at their website here: LAINS BARN WEDDINGS]

4. TYTHE BARN

I shot a wedding here a few years ago and it will certainly brings the wow factor to your wedding.  This barn is HUGE and so can have up to 155 seated guests for dinner (and 220 in the evening) which isn’t always the case with barn weddings.  The barn comes with a team of wedding planners to help you with planning for exactly the wedding you want.

5. PRIMROSE HILL FARM

What I most love about the barn at Primrose Hill Farm is the light… I’ve never seen a barn which let’s in so much light.  It’s the only contemporary barn I’ve found and it looks amazing.  I can vision a modern, sophisticated wedding taking place here.

6. COGGES FARM

Cogges Farm has two charming barns right next together of different size, but they only do one wedding per weekend making the barns fully yours.  It comes as a perfect blank canvas, and they are totally flexible enabling you to create the wedding of your dreams.  There is loads of space around the barns to explore, such as the orchard and play area.  You can also include the farm animals in your day!

7. STRATTON COURT BARN

Stratton Court Barn is a really lovely, well thought out wedding venue.  The wedding co-ordinator, Karin, is the most experienced, open minded, inspiring woman, who is open to any ideas you bring to her. (Read the interview I did with her here: LUNCH AT STRATTON COURT BARN WEDDING VENUE) This barn has the best outdoor area, full of stunning festoon lighting, big rustic wooden tables, a fire pit and cosy seating.  Thumbs up from me.

8. THE GREAT BARN

The Great Barn a converted 18th century barn set in a massive estate with three lakes and rich woodland… I mean wow!!  They can seat 140 (which is pretty big hey?) and up to 250 for informal receptions.  The stone barns are licensed for civil ceremonies, and, they offer outdoor ceremonies (whoop!!)

9. MANOR FARM BARN

I’ve worked at Manor Farm Barn before (have a read of this ace wedding: A MANOR FARM BARN WEDDING) and the staff there are so so helpful, they offer a totally bespoke wedding service and they will bend over backward to help achieve the wedding you are planning.  The venue is a 16th Century Barn which is exclusively yours for the day and can seat 100.

10. NOTLEY ABBEY

Technically on the Bucks/Oxfordshire border, but really not far from Oxford City at all so I’m going to include it in this list as I love this place so much, and you can get married outside here – you all know what a fan I am of outdoor wedding ceremonies!  This ‘award winning’ wedding venue has the most incredible hight ceilings, huge windows, you can have fireworks here, and you can have a late licence so you can party into the small hours! [Take a peek at their website here: NOTLEY ABBEY WEDDINGS]

I’d also like to add a new barn venue which I’ve only just found out about, which is SULGRAVE MANOR… it is a manor, but the bit you hire for a wedding is a cosy light barn, with lots of lovely rustic outdoor space.

I hope you find this blog post useful and it helps you find the right barn to match your wedding, but if you are still researching your Oxfordshire wedding venue take a look at other blog posts here: OXFORDSHIRE WEDDING VENUES
