Hello & Welcome to The Barn at Upcote!

Here at The Barn we want you to decide how you use the spaces to make your wedding day as special and unique as possible. Flexibility with a relaxed & friendly but professional atmosphere come together to help you make memories of your special day to last a lifetime.

We have spaces for both intimate and larger weddings including for your ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception. We’ve had sit down meals for 10 to 110, or even more for a relaxed BBQ / Buffet style with no formal seating. We don’t have any minimum number guest requirements and we then have room for over 150 guests for the evening’s entertainment across the Barns.

Your photographer will be spoilt for choice with so many options of places to capture the day, from your couple photographs to group shots with your nearest and dearest.

Your Ceremony

We are licensed by Gloucestershire County Council for weddings and civil partnerships in our Threshing Barn and other Barns for your ceremony. You also have the opportunity (weather dependant) for an outdoor ceremony!

Just drop us a message to discuss your needs and we can advise you on the next step.

You’ll need to agree your ceremony date and time with the Superintendent Registrar, which can be done by calling Gloucestershire County Council Registrar on 01452 425060.

You can also find more information on their website www.gloucestershireregistrationservice.co.uk

Your Wedding Breakfast

Our flexible set of buildings provide you with an opportunity to decide exactly how you structure your day following your ceremony.

You can start with your drinks reception in the courtyard or top lawn and move to the Threshing Barn for a sumptuous meal, your wedding breakfast.

Alternatively, if you want to hold your drinks reception in the Sheep Shed / Grain Store, and then move either into the Threshing Barn for a larger wedding breakfast or the cosier area in the Grain Store for a more intimate meal.

Our preferred caterers offer a range of options for you to choose from for your food.

You have the option of round or trestle tables for your meal that can be configured to your own particular arrangement – our team along with your caterers will set this up for you.

We are more than happy to send over table layout options that work perfectly within our Threshing Barn to help with inspiration.

Your Evening Reception

We love a good party here at The Barn and enjoy all the different types of music our weddings bring – from jukeboxes to rock bands to a great wedding DJ!

For the evening reception, you could have your dancing in the Grain Store (next to and connected to our Bar) or even in the Threshing Barn, with evening food served around the venue or on the gravel area in the courtyard.

A huge thank you for everything that you did to make our wedding day so special last year! We fell in love with your venue the first time that we saw it and felt so lucky to celebrate our marriage in such a beautiful, relaxed location.

Thank you for all your time, support and amazing organisation, as well as the fantastic recommendations of suppliers, who were all brilliant.

C&A

We wanted to thank you for everything you did for us to give us a perfect wedding. You were so supportive and responded quickly to everything we asked along the way.

We had so many compliments about the venue, it really is beautiful, and we wish you lots of success. From the moment we came we knew this was the venue for us, we love everything about it! Thanks in particular for your support on the day, the weather caused some last minute changes which you handled brilliantly.

N&T

We cannot thank you enough for giving us the most beautiful wedding. Our heartfelt thanks to the team, who were just absolutely wonderful – both on the day and in the months leading up to the wedding. We count ourselves truly privileged to have married at your gorgeous Barn – we could not imagine a more perfect venue.

A&V

Thank you all so much for making our wedding day absolutely perfect. The whole day was more than we could have wished for and everything went without a hitch!

We have no doubt this was down to all the hard work you put in on the lead up to the day and on the day itself. We lost count of all the compliments given by our guests! Everyone was blown away by your stunning venue and it will always hold a special place in our hearts.
