Wedding Experience Event at The Ashes


Choose The Ashes Barns as your wedding venue and you can look forward to attending one of our fabulous Wedding Experience Events. We’ll tantalise your taste buds with a mouthwatering tasting menu; you’ll sample some delectable wines from The Cellar and get to meet some of our amazing Dream Team suppliers.


Gastronomic Inspiration

Our Wedding Experience Events offer couples a fantastic opportunity to taste a variety of incredible dishes served up by our exclusive wedding caterers.

Seeing the stunning presentation of the dishes, enjoying their intoxicating aromas and sampling the delicious flavours, makes it so much easier for you to decide what you’d like to serve guests at your wedding breakfast.



Be Our Guest

You are also afforded the unique opportunity to experience The Ashes Barns as a guest; you can immerse yourselves in the ambience and atmosphere of this rustic barn wedding venue when it is full of excited people and dressed for a special event.

It’s fantastic to see how magical The Ashes Barns is by moonlight and how much warmth the interior stonework adds to your evening pictures.

The Guest List

We’ll invite you and your fiancé to one of our Wedding Experience Events a few months prior to your wedding; you’ll have the opportunity to invite up to four additional guests to make up a party of six if you like.

Couples often ask their parents if they’d like to come or close friends and make up a very jolly party!


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.



One Little Daisy

Joe at One Little Daisy has a fabulous eye for detail and a charming demeanor; he’ll capture the magic of any event and his imaginative storytelling style is a hit with our couples. We hope you enjoy browsing through his fabulous photos of our Wedding Experience Event at The Ashes as much as we did.

We love his ability to capture those fleeting moments and all those subtle facial expressions that say it all, beautifully.

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.

They were hot on trend with some succulents and the oh so pretty mini hanging jars over the registrar’s table were simply delightful.

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.

Steelasophical Steel Band

These guys were brilliant! They brought a ray of pure sunshine to the event with their gorgeous Caribbean music.

It was quite impossible not to sway your hips just a little whenever they were in the room.

Replay Acoustic Duo

Thanks to Dan & Jess who make up Relay Acoustic Duo, a live lounge acoustic duo.

Their stripped-down natural sound is perfect for weddings and we love that they can up the tempo to suit, as the mood of the event gets lighter (often when the bubbly takes effect!)

VW Occasions

Make an entrance with this retro, fun, VW Campervan. We always encourage couples to plan their perfect wedding; we’re totally flexible so couples can make the day their own.

If traditional wedding cars are not your style, then ‘Wilma’ the 1959 Splitscreen Campervan might be just up your street, she’s got oodles of personality and is guaranteed to put a smile on your face on your big day.

Royale Casino

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.
