Exclusive Use Wedding Venue


The Ashes

The Ashes Barns Wedding Venue is an exclusive use wedding venue. On your wedding day the only people at The Ashes are there by your personal invitation.

We do not operate a restaurant, spa or any other facilities which are open to the general public so you can enjoy having the entire 50 acre estate all to yourselves.

The Benefits of Exclusive Use


Make it Personal

As an exclusive use wedding venue we can offer you the flexibility to dress the barns to suit your individual style and wedding theme, we’ll even arrange for our amazing Estates Team to set out all your personal touches and decorations on the morning of your wedding so you can relax and enjoy getting ready.

Any wedding suppliers you book will have access to the venue from 10am on your wedding day, giving them plenty of time to set up before guests start to arrive.

Why not consider our recommended ‘Dream Team’ wedding suppliers for that extra wow factor.
