We believe that your wedding day should be meaningful, enjoyable and personal so you are free to choose whoever you like to supply whatever you want for your marriage. It is your day after all! We have lists of suppliers of all things wedding related if you would like a hand but it's entirely up to you.
A wedding shouldn't be stressed, rushed or shared. The Great Barn at Ashridge only hosts a few exclusive weddings a year and the place is completely yours for a full three day period. We give you a full day to prepare and then another full day to pack up so that the entirety of your special day is devoted to making your wedding dreams a reality.
Complete with a lovely wood dance floor, a fire pit and a 'snug' quiet area, the Great Barn is a lovely airy building with a historical grandeur without losing a feeling of warmth and intimacy. The barn looks just as stunning decorated with fairy lights and candles as it does dressed up with vintage bunting and rustic bouquets, allowing you to dress it up however you desire.
With space for up to 110 seated guests, with a maximum of 200, and a cut off time of 1am the Great Barn is a venue to remember and a beautiful space in which to make memories.

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.
