The Guest Experience
Immerse yourself in the guest experience at The Ashes Barns Wedding Venue when we invite you for your exclusive Pre-Wedding Event.
These events offer our happy couples the unique opportunity to see The Ashes Barns from their wedding guest’s point of view.
Your wedding day will probably be the first time any of your guests have been to The Ashes Barns and it’s great to be able to take a step back and see the venue from their perspective prior to your wedding.
Your Wedding Breakfast is one of the most important and enjoyable parts of your wedding day.
At The Ashes Barns you get to design your own wedding breakfast menu, which is great but it can be really hard to decide what you’d like to serve! You’ll want to choose a menu that reflects your individual style, appeals to your guests and compliments the season you’re getting married in, a cold salad starter just doesn’t cut it on a crisp winter’s day!
We’ll serve up a number of dishes for you to try at your Wedding Experience Event, making it much easier to design your perfect wedding menu.
You’re very welcome to supply your own daytime drinks at The Ashes Barns and we don’t apply a corkage fee. That’s amazing but it’s not always practical for couples who live some distance from the venue.
The Cellar at The Ashes Barns offers sublime, discounted drinks for your wedding which can be ordered on a sale or return basis direct from the venue. Better still, you get to sample these stunning Cellar Wines at your pre-wedding event.
You’ll have to toss a coin to see who’s driving!
Meet The Dream Team
We hope that you’ll be inspired, not only by the incredible tasting menu but also by the wealth of decorative, musical and entertainment ideas supplied by our wonderful wedding Dream Team. Our thanks to the following awesome suppliers who help to make these evenings so very special.
I love Deborah Stott’s approach to wedding photography. She says… ‘When we meet up, I won’t ask you for a shot list; I’ll ask how you met, how he proposed, where you’re thinking of going for your honeymoon. Questions that help me get a sense of who you are, so that I can capture the best versions of you, on one of the best days of your lives.’
She’s awesome and our couples love her, she tells the story of their wedding day so beautifully, that’s why she’s one of our Dream Team photographers.
The Topiary Tree Florist
Our Wedding Experience Events just wouldn’t be the same without the creative flair of The Topiary Tree.
The variety of their visually dynamic floral arrangements is incredible and helps our couples appreciate the impact that their wedding flowers have on the overall style, feel and theme of their wedding.
Tickety Boo Cakes
A treat for the eyes and the tummy; Erica from Tickety Boo Cakes works hard to make sure her wedding cakes taste as good as they look and that’s saying something because they look A-MA-ZING! We’re a little in love with her naked cakes and can’t help but smile whenever we get to taste her frosted icing. Sublime.
Brothers Liam and Matt make up the acoustic duo Ashmore Acoustics. We never fail to be impressed by their ‘full band sound’, their professionalism, talent and energy. They tailor their song-list to suit the different elements of your big day and your personal preferences; they really lift the mood and add to the atmosphere.
Jester Styles Magician
Jester Styles is a simply phenomenal close up magician, he left guests astounded and wondering how on earth he pulled off his amazing array of magical tricks.
Bordering on performance art, his mind-blowing tricks certainly got everybody talking at our Pre-Wedding Experience Event, we thought he was brilliant!
Mad Badger Caricaturist
We love John Roberts aka The Mad Badger, his artistic talents and sartorial style make him an exceptional addition to any wedding!
Your guests will love his amusing depictions of them and they’ll have a unique keepsake of your wedding day to take away with them.
You’ll get loads of help from us here at The Ashes Barns when it comes to your wedding day timings; no one wants a ‘lull’ at their wedding. Depending on the flow of your day it might be nice to put on some entertainment for guests to keep their energy levels high as the evening guests arrive.
Royale Casino offer a range of entertainment and we find that their casino appeals to guests (we all love to play 007 occasionally!)
