The Great Barn is a lovely airy building with a historical grandeur and an astounding versatility.  A barn with the wow factor without losing a feeling of warmth, intimacy and the personal touch. 


This inspiring edifice looks just as stunning decorated with fairy lights and candles as it does dressed up with vintage bunting and rustic bouquets, allowing every bride to have the wedding of her dreams. 


With space for up to 110 seated guests and a built in dance floor, the Great Barn is a venue to remember and a beautiful space in which to make memories.​

Weddings at the Great Barn

The First Wedding – Rustic Elegance

With the wedding held in the little church in Bondleigh, just 2 miles away, the happy couple rode horses through the winding lanes and tall trees of the estate woodland to the reception venue, stopping only for a photo shoot in the wild flower meadow.  They arrived on horse back, dismounting in a shower of flower petal confetti to greet their guests.  Starting with canapés and champagne, the 110 people strong wedding party and guests sat down at banquet tables, to a three course dinner provided by Oaktree Occasions, who provide locally sourced deliciousness from nearby Okehampton.  They danced the night away to live music provided by the fabulous The Lateshift and the Best of Both Disco, propping up the bar and feeding the fire pit long into the night.  The whole event was creatively captured on camera by Evolve Photography, who also provided some pictures for this website.
