See lots more lovely photos of Beth and Oli’s day in our gallery here


Lovely local couple Beth and Oli got married and held their reception at The Old Barn in April 2015 – and what a lovely time was had by all! With lots of family and friends coming from near and far, they wanted a fun, relaxed celebration, with everyone pitching in to help them celebrate their big day … and that’s what they got!

What inspired you about The Old Barn?

We loved the natural, old country feel of The Old Barn, the fact that it’s so different – and that it was a blank canvas that we could make our own. But my husband Oli loved The Old Barn mostly because he’d always said that if he were to get married, there needed to be bumper cars and lots of fun! It was just perfect for us.

What was your favourite part of the day?

The whole day was just amazing. But if we had to pick two moments, it would be being outside the church after we’d just got married and seeing everyone smiling, and going around the theme park with each other, our friends and family.

What did your guests think of your day?

They all said how relaxed it was, and how it was really lovely special day but still managed to not be too serious. Everyone had so much fun, and said how lovely The Old Barn looked.

Are you glad you had the day you did?

Absolutely – it was just what we wanted.

What advice would you give to other couples?

Enjoy yourselves! The Old Barn’s a fun venue, so don’t take yourselves too seriously. I ran around the park in my wedding dress, tiara and heels – that’s what it was all about for us! And take advantage of the awesome photo opportunities!!
