Fresh Blooms at The Ashes Barns
The Ultimate Floral Inspiration Alert!!
We first fell in love with The Ashes Country House Barn Wedding Venue back in 2006 when an award-winning restoration project took place. The historic Grade II listed Farm House and Barns form the finest group of farm-buildings resting in fifty acres of glorious countryside. Within this exclusive use estate guests will find a lake, a pond, flagstone courtyards, a private tree lined driveway, an apple orchard, wheat fields, landscaped borders and lots of pretty planting.
The Ashes Barns is an incredible wedding venue …. it never fails to inspire us as florists. It's the ultimate ‘blank canvas’ onto which you can impress your own style and personality through your chosen floral designs.
Our knowledge of this venue means that at your private consultation we can concentrate on understanding you, your wishes and hopes for the day. We won’t have to ask lots of questions about the venue because we’ll already be imagining how to make your dreams a reality.
Here’s what we know….
The Dressing Room
Exclusively yours from 10.30am on your wedding day… a luxurious area for you and your wedding party to pamper and prepare on the morning of your Big Day! The perfect area for us to deliver your bridal bouquet and bridesmaids’ bouquets so you can complete those final touches before your ceremony.
The West Barn
This romantic stone barn with high exposed beams, flooded with natural light is the perfect location for your ceremony. The 6 original ground floor windowsills are wonderful for adding some personal touches and the 6 rustic iron hooks along the barn walls are just the right height for hanging decorative items. The bespoke oak chairs can be arranged in two configurations over the beautiful flagstone floor - the traditional arrangement creates a stunning long aisle, while the arc arrangement creates an intimate setting for smaller wedding parties. There are 3 rustic iron hooks behind the Registrars table which are magnificent for creating a focal backdrop or individual decorative items.
All personal touches which can then be transferred into the Wedding Breakfast barn towards the end of your drinks reception.
The North Courtyard
The ideal location for you and your guests to mingle, relax and enjoy a drink! This natural, flagstone courtyard area is surrounded by beautiful dry-stone walls and wrought iron fencing. 9 outdoor tables and 50 chairs are positioned in this courtyard often decorated with potted plants or tealights! Our famous butchers’ bike and milk churns are also often spotted in this area!!
The East Barn
Your celebratory feast is enjoyed in this stunning natural stone barn, with polished oak floor, original timber beams and wrought iron details. A maximum of 15 round tables can be arranged in this spectacular barn and there are three different sizes of formal, straight top table available. The high ceiling lends itself beautifully to ‘tall’ table centrepieces and the exposed beams provide an intimate setting for ‘low’ table centrepieces. The 6 ground floor windows are the perfect locations to add your personal touches or some soft candle light. 13 rustic iron hooks are positioned above the barn doors and stone windowsills – a wonderful spot for hanging decorative items!
