As many of you may already know the last few months have seen all sorts of activity within the wedding industry scene due to it being ‘Awards Season’! For us here at the barn it has been exciting times as we saw ourselves being both shortlisted for and winners of a number of trophies. It started with being shortlisted for the Regional Finals of the 2019 Wedding Industry Awards in two (yes two) categories! Countryside Wedding Venue and Wedding Event Team for the South Central area. We were absolutely delighted and found ourselves travelling to Farnham Castle back in November for the first awards ceremony with much anticipation and excitement.
We were thrilled to win the Best Countryside Wedding Venue of The Year 2019 and brought our trophy back to the barn feeling incredibly proud and hugely grateful to all of the judges and of course all our wonderful brides and grooms who voted for us.
Most of the team, both the The Tythe Barn and Absolute Taste, then travelled on a minibus to London on Wednesday 16th January (imagine that for a minute) for the National Awards but we were just pipped at the post by the Old Kent Barn, however being voted as one of the 8 best countryside barns in the UK was fabulous news to us! Following the awards we are sent the feedback collated during the voting process which means we are lucky enough to have the opportunity to read all the wonderful comments from our couples and… wow what a read that was! Thank you so much to each and everyone of you. Firstly for spending the time to vote and secondly for your amazing comments. We have had an amazing year at the barn and we would also like to thank you all for sharing it with us. You too were all part of our wonderful story and we will be forever grateful.
