Some couples prefer to invite just their closest friends and family to their wedding which makes our intimate wedding venue the perfect option for these couples. Our intimate wedding venue is in the countryside of Leicester and is surrounded by rolling hills. The rolling hills of the countryside allows couples to make an entrance that is completely unique to them for example a helicopter landing. When you come to our wedding venue you will be able to choose between the marquee or the oak barn.
The marquee’s French doors open out on to the surrounding veranda which is perfect for a drinks reception, outdoor bar or a hog roast. The marque also serves as a viewing platform which will allow you and your guests to enjoy the countryside views of Leicester in a secluded setting.
The oak barn
The oak barn was originally a hay barn as part of the stables, however we have converted it so that it can be used as an intimate wedding venue. The wooden gambrel roof ceilings are adorned with up-lighters and centred with the large wrought iron chandelier which creates a spectacular setting. The tapestries add a touch of softness to the barn whilst the natural elements of the rich barn wood and exposed original brick combine to offer a rustic, yet chic opulence. There are tables and chairs provided to seat 80 people but the oak barn can seat more people depending on what the layout is. Dining and dancing also fit in the oak barn and there are even options available for civil ceremonies.
The oak barn has under floor heating, two washrooms with disabled access and a catering space. The oak barn’s glass doors open on to a terrace area too which overlooks panoramic views of Leicester. This can be used for reception drinks or as an outdoor seating area on one side whilst the other side of the barn adjoins a covered stable area that can be used for hog roasts, live cooking or even outdoor games and activities.
When you use our intimate wedding venue you can book our bridal cottage, this is a two bedroom cottage which can be used for the bride and her bridesmaids to get changed in/to make last minute touch ups or it can be used as a honeymoon suite. There is also local accommodation that is available for family and friends where we have exclusive rates. If you would like to know more about our intimate wedding venue or if you would like to book with us then simply fill out our contact form and one of our team will then be on hand to discuss your requirements soon after.
