E X C L U S I V E LY Y O U R S

Welcome to Lains Barn – a rural, romantic wedding venue that is exclusively yours for your special day. Enjoy our intimate yet spacious grounds with your friends and family, with no interruptions from the outside world. Lains is family-run – and that’s one of the reasons it’s such a special place. We pride ourselves on being involved in the day-to-day running of things; we’re there for your initial call and visit, at your six-month meeting, and all the way through to the day of your wedding. We couldn’t talk about what makes Lains so special without mentioning the outstanding cuisine from Head Chef Tom, son of the owners, who forged his career in Michelin-rated kitchens. Beautiful food in a space that’s entirely yours, with all of your favourite people… what could be better?

MARRIED SEPTEMBER 2021

ALIS & JAMES If you are looking for a venue who will provide you with peace of mind, a fantastic service and amazing food look no further! This place ticks all the boxes! We are so happy we chose Lains Barn and couldn’t recommend highly enough! Thanks again for making it an incredible day!


BEFORE THE WEDDING

We know it’s not always easy to squeeze in wedding planning between your other commitments, which is why uniquely, we offer flexible viewings to work around your schedule – you can even visit us on Bank Holidays, depending on availability. Our expert Wedding Coordinator is on-hand right up until your wedding day, working with you on a detailed timeline (including timings for suppliers) and answering any questions you may have. We’ll also invite you to visit the barn the day before your wedding. This gives you a chance to drop off your decorations, meet your on-the-day Event Manager and have one final walk-around.

THE TIME BEFORE TIME S TA N D S S T I L L

The groom, or bride, arrives at the barn in the morning, for a much-needed pre-ceremony drink with their wedding party. This is the perfect chance to relax a little, greet guests and take those funny and memorable photos that you’ll treasure forever. Last-minute make-up touch-ups or outfit adjustments? Make use of the secret dressing room, hidden in the barn. It’s the perfect place for those final checks – or simply taking a moment to breathe – before walking down the aisle.


LAINS BARN | 11


THE VOWS

You’ll never forget this moment. Many of our couples say that the only thing they notice is each other as they walk down the aisle, and as you stand under Lains’ timber-framed roof and say your vows, it is as though time stands still. Lains is a versatile venue that can be decorated as you like, from posies at each row of chairs, to light-up letters, to garlands of greenery. Depending on your desired finish, the barn looks just as beautiful with the existing swag and fairy lights, as it does liberally adorned with flowers, bunting and lights.


LAINS BARN | 13


THE RECEPTION

After you’ve said your vows, enjoy reception drinks in our luscious courtyard. While guests mingle on the lawn in an intimate setting, it’s the perfect time for photo opportunities around the barn. Take a moment, just the two of you (with your photographer in tow), to capture memories that will last forever. The grain store and outdoor byre make breath-taking backdrops, or strike a pose by the well, in front of the barn doors or on the lawn. The fields of gold next door are also beautifully photogenic – and perfect for couple photos.


WEDDING FEASTING

While you and your guests sip fizz (or your favourite cocktail) in our courtyard, the Lains team are busy transforming the barn from your ceremony room to an impressive dining hall – the perfect setting for your first meal as a married couple. Then it’s time for feasting! Enjoy delicious food by Barton House Events’ Tom Sherry and his highly experienced team. Not only are they known for their incredible food, but the team has worked on large-scale events for world leaders, royalty, and more – so every dish is served to perfection, no matter how large the guest list is.

DRINKS UP!


Cheers! We have a drinks menu – and fullystocked bar – to suit all tastes, from classic cocktails and local ales to fine wines that pair perfectly with your chosen dishes. We can recommend wine packages and have an array of choices to help take the stress out of ordering drinks. Alternatively, if you have your heart set on specific wines, we are more than happy for you to arrange this at your end – we just apply a corkage fee for wines brought in. The choice is absolutely yours.

If you would like a cocktail hour we are happy to arrange this for you. Please just let our Event Manager know at your six-month meeting – and in the meantime, think about what your cocktail of choice will be!

BARTON HOUSE


THE 3-DAY WEDDING

Why not make a weekend of it? Just a couple minutes’ drive from Lains Barn lies Barton House, a beautiful Georgian manor run by the same family behind Lains. Couples getting married at Lains Barn have the special option of staying in this exclusive luxury venue the night before, and the night of, their wedding. From Barton, it’s just a hop, skip and a jump (or a two-minute drive) to your Lains Barn wedding. For all enquiries relating to Barton House please contact us at events@lainsbarn.co.uk.

LAINS BARN | 21



For your family and friends not staying at Barton House we are excited to announce we are now running an offer with the wonderful new Marriott in Milton. The hotel is now offering preferential room rates to guests of our couples, and is just a 10-minute drive away from both Barton House and Lains Barn. Please contact our wedding coordinator once you have booked your wedding with us for more information.

MARRIED MARCH 2022

TA M U K A & J A M E S Everyone at Lains worked so tirelessly to give us the day of our dreams and I cannot count the amount of guests who have called or messaged to compliment on how stunning the venue was or how friendly and professional the staff were throughout.


FA Q 's

CAN WE VISIT LAINS AFTER B O OKING OUR WEDDING DATE WITH YOU? Of course! As we do have weddings any day of the week, please book in advance by emailing events@lainsbarn.co.uk. D O Y O U H AV E A N Y C E L E B R A N T RECOMMENDATIONS?

IS CORKAGE AN OPTION AT LAINS BARN?

D O E S L A I N S B A R N H AV E A S O U N D SYSTEM?

Most definitely! If there’s a certain wine (or tequila) that you love which reminds you of a special moment then just speak with our bar manager who will be happy to help arrange this with you and advise you of the different corkage charges.

Lains Barn has a fully integrated Sonos surround sound system in both the barn, the bar, and outside. Meaning you don’t have to worry about how you’re going to create your perfect entrance moment, you just have to plug your phone in, hand it over to an Usher, and wait for your cue. We also have an integrated PA system with a microphone that can be used for readings, speeches and announcements.

CAN I BRING MY DOG? We do! Beth Whaley is our recommended celebrant who will do blessings and in-formal ceremonies for you. You can find all her details on our website on the recommended suppliers page. D O Y O U H AV E A L A T E L I C E N C E ?

Happy couples are welcome to bring your furry friend along with you. However, please confirm with us beforehand if you do decide to bring them; and an individual, who must remain sober, should be nominated to look after the dog on the day. We kindly ask that your dog does not stay on after the wedding breakfast.

Yes, we do. Please enquire for late licence extension fees and times.
