Reception Food & Drinks

Welcome your guests with a selection of Canapés and Reception Drinks following your Wedding Ceremony. Your Reception is the start of your celebrations and should set your day off with a bang. You can provide a selection of Canapés along with glasses of sparkling for all your guests, or why not try something a little different and have a mixture of drinks. Some of these ideas can always be continued throughout your day if you’d prefer. We are here to build the Wedding Reception you’ve always imagined!

  • We had our wedding at The Great Barn in May 23. It was the most beautiful venue and the team were fantastic.
    Leading up to the wedding day Laura was very helpful in answering any questions and we felt reassured and in good hands throughout the planning process.
    On the day Sarah and the team were brilliant in ensuring that every detail was taken care of and the day went as smoothly as possible.
    We were lucky to have great weather and our guests really enjoyed the grounds and lawn games. We also stayed in the garden cottage which we would highly recommend to end the day.
    Thank you so much to the whole team!

  • We had our wedding at The Great Barn back in June and it is honestly the most beautiful wedding venue! The whole planning process with Laura was completely stress-free, and Hannah and the team on the day were so friendly and helped to ensure the day flowed smoothly. We'd highly recommend The Great Barn, thank you again!

  • We had our wedding at The Great Barn in May 2023.
    Support running up to the big day with all our planning was great. During the day itself, the team were reassuring (very important for the Bride) attentive and discreet throughout the day. It all helped with the most magical day for us both and our guests. We also had the Cottage for the wedding night. Lovely place to wake up as Mr & Mrs!

  • I just wanted to write a quick email to say a huge thank you to you and the team for our amazing wedding on Saturday. It went without a hitch and everything was exactly as I envisioned. I cannot thank you enough. The team working on the day were conscientious, efficient and extremely professional and it ran incredibly smoothly. The venue is obviously also very beautiful and your team kindly decorated it exactly as I planned. Huge thanks to yourself as well for always being extremely helpful and working hard in the background to ensure the day ran smoothly.
