''Our son and daughter in law chose Grittenham Barn for their wedding reception at the end of July. The venue and facilities exceeded all their expectations and provided the perfect setting and back drop for their celebration. Despite pouring rain the whole day, the layout of the barn both inside and outside was so welcoming and cosy, particularly as the owners provided a log fire, that the weather just seemed like a rather fun challenge. The split level arrangement for dining/dancing at one end and standing reception and bar at the other was ideal and ensured the maximum of socialising. We were particularly impressed with the standard of decor of the Barn, especially the washing facilities that were stylish and clean and remained so despite the number of guests and duration of the reception. Having full access to the Barn the full day before the wedding and for half a day afterwards was particularly helpful and throughout our dealings with those responsible for the hire, they were welcoming and clearly keen to assist in every way possible. We felt their priority was the success of the occasion for our son and daughter in law and not the commercial benefits to themselves. The catering company chosen from the Barn's list of recommendations (Eat The Street) and the florist, Angel Like Flowers, both provided a first class service and the memory of the delicious meal and the breath taking floral decorations of the Barn will remain with us.
Altogether a wonderful location and a perfect reception. Thank you Grittenham!''

''Grittenham Barn is a stunning venue with beautiful gardens, a gorgeous lake... And donkeys!! What more could you want?!?!
Katherine, Nicola and the team were very attentive and were great in the lead up to our big day. We had GBC bar company, Eat the Street caterers, Charlie Campey Photography and Chris' mum doing the flowers; all of which came together nicely. We were fortunate to have a gorgeous day of sunshine which meant guests could play garden games, dip into the beer barrow and sit and enjoy the grounds!! We would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking in the area. It's beautiful.
Thanks so much team Grittenham for making our day truly special and wonderful in every possible way.''

''We got married at Grittenham Barn in August 2015 on the hottest day of the year! Other than the incredibly stunning venue, and friendly helpful staff, one of the selling points for us was that we had access to the barn from Friday right through to Sunday, we didn't find a single other venue that allowed us that relaxed amount of time to set up and clear away, my florist, the caterers, the bar staff were coming and going for 2 days. The staff at Grittenham, be it introduced or working directly for the barn made our day so special with great communication the whole way through, they never made me feel that my questions were too small to bother them. From the fairy lights, to the delicious organic soaps in the bathrooms, to the gorgeous donkeys. I'd highly recommend Grittenham Barn. Thank you for an incredible day!''

''Grittenham barn is in the most gorgeous of settings and is much loved by its owners. This shows throughout everything they do. After visiting Grittenham ( it being the first venue I saw) I knew I wanted that to be the place where I got married.
Katherine was extremely generous and helpful throughout and gave me many options and ideas on how I could dress/decorate the barn without being pushy.
The day went without a hitch and the team made sure we had the personal day that we had dreamt of.
The donkeys with their headdresses was a lovely touch as was the 100s of candles that were lovingly lit for us throughout the grounds, it looked beautiful.
We got married in June 2010 and some years later we asked the barn if we could bring our children to see the place where we got married and take some photos. They could not have been more accommodating. Touches like this are what make Grittenham barn a stand out venue. I'd happily recommend this to any couple looking for a outstanding, unique, relaxed and breathtaking place to start their married life.''
