Wedding Receptions

The Tythe Barn provides a wonderful backdrop for your Wedding Reception and our dedicated and close-knit team provide you with on-going support.  The planning and advice given at The Tythe Barn comes with an in-depth knowledge and expertise and we offer a comprehensive list of incredibly experienced service providers who are also extremely familiar with the barn. 

A few important facts for you regarding Wedding Receptions here at the barn.  Firstly, it's your day and we want your vision to come to life at the barn.  We're fairly relaxed at the barn and we don't have a set format that you need to follow but we will work with you and guide you.  For your Wedding Breakfast in the main barn we offer a variety of options regarding your choices for lighting, table layout and decor.  We can seat between 40 and 155 guests comfortably in either the main barn or our adjoining Cowshed, with an optional marquee on the lawn should you wish to entertain larger numbers.  Below you will see how the barn can be interpreted in so many different ways with our couples really making it their own.  Our banqueting lines, seen below, are always a popular choice for the table layout and both the fairy lights and the festoon lights hung in various formats add a lovely finishing touch to the character of the barn.  

  • Seated dining in The Tythe Barn - up to 155 guests
  • Seated dining in the Cowshed - up to 40 guests
  • Evening Reception - a maximum of 220 guests
  • Final numbers dependent on individual requirements

Why not get your guests involved in the Wedding Breakfast...our Self Carve!

"In fact, words cannot describe how we feel about our wedding day. It was perfect in every sense of the word. The venue is just incredible. I had a strong idea of what I imagined my wedding to be like and this just exceeded anything I could have imagined. It was the attention to detail that blew us away. From the immaculate barn and gardens to the little nook and shepherds hut, everything was thought out so carefully, prepared so rigorously, and laid out with such style. The fact that we could amble from the gorgeous little church to the barn through lovely gardens was amazing. We felt cared for and relaxed, the staff were so kind and attentive and the food... Well our guests still talk about the food, the perfect mix of refined, hearty and simple, served so professional.  Honestly we could go on all day but I hope you get the gist! Thank you, thank you, thank you for the happiest day of our lives." Hannah and Aaron (Bride & Groom)

When it comes to the food, again the choice is yours!  Why don't you get your guests involved with all the fun of our well-loved 'Self-Carve' or dip in to the gorgeous selection offered by our 'Barn Feast'.  You may find you are leaning more towards our scrummy Pie Planks brought out on impressive long wooden boards or want to allow your guests to get creative by selecting the ultimate build your own 'Barn Burger'.  The choices do not end with the wedding breakfast because when it comes to the evening we have some real treats in store for you.  Our pizza chefs can fire up our wood-fired pizza oven in the evening should you wish and whilst they're kneeding the dough and adding your carefully pre-selected toppings to create each pizza you and your guests will love the colourful theatre and drama when evening food takes on a whole new meaning.  Of course chilling by the outdoor wood burners on our gorgeous sheepskin-covered benches whilst tucking in to our Quesadillas may be more your style but whatever you choose to indulge in on your wedding day - the feedback and reviews we get have been consistently good (well exceptional actually...but we would love for you to find out for yourself!)  

"The food was as good as a 5 star restaurant and the service was equal to that, can not praise the venue enough."  Alan Morrice (Father of the Bride)
