MR & Mrs Stengel
Dave and I got married at York Barn on Easter weekend 2023 and it was more than perfect.
York Barn was the only wedding venue we viewed and as soon as we saw it we know it was the one for us. The venue itself is so well planned and thought-out, clean and super pretty. There are hooks everywhere to attach decorations, built in sound system and we loved the farmhouse tables available for use! We ideally wanted to get married outside so York Barn provided a beautiful option for us to do this, and we were lucky with the weather on the day allowing guests to be able to enjoy the outside and the terrace. We also loved that we could also choose our caterers which allowed us to personalise our wedding the way we wanted.
One of the biggest benefits to the venue were the lovely holiday cottages on site. We wanted to make a weekend out of the wedding rather than it just being the day, and living in London with lots of friends travelling we knew this would be a huge bonus. We had over 80 friends and family staying on site on the Friday and Saturday nights, allowing us to plan activities for the Friday and wander round reminiscing on the Sunday. The cottages are very well equipment, lovely and clean and perfect for a weekend away with your friends – the hot tubs were well used!
The icing on the cake for Villa Farm is the team. Nicole was our main contact running up to the wedding and she was incredible. She understood everything we wanted to do and was over every details of our day, we did not have to worry. She was also so quick to respond, provide her expert guidance and advice when needed and supported us with anything we wanted to do, even our confetti pony. Nothing was too much of an ask! The other team members on the day were also excellent. Corrina was there throughout with a smile on her face at all times making sure everything was perfect! Adam – well what can I say, he was there with his ladder when we needed, the golf buggy to bring us round, sorted everything out for Pepper (our confetti pony) and was there with a sweeping brush at the end of the night! Yrina made sure the drinks were flowing!
We would recommend York Barn to anyone – it is the most perfect place and you will be looked after from start to finish. I wish everyday we could go back and do it again – it was the best day of our lives. Thank you so much York Barn, Villa Farm team!
