The Arboretum’ – our elegant, brand new, all season permanent ‘glass’ Marquee is purposefully positioned at the bottom of a hill in a natural valley surrounded by woods, trees, apple and pear orchards.
Unlike other venues with marquees which have them erected and dismantled seasonally, The BarnYard’s marquee is permanent in structure which has allowed us to equip it to the highest of standards. Although the roofline is a traditional marquee, there is nothing else that looks like a marquee as every single side panel all the way around the structure is now bi-folding glass doors which, when all open allows more natural light to flood in and gives a much greater circulation of air.
A 6m long modern bar has been built right alongside the dance floor above which has been installed state of the art intelligent lighting (which can be programmed to match your colour scheme), beautiful fairylit ceiling with enormous crystal chandeliers, green foliage chandeliers and garlands, brand new (fully enclosed within the marquee structure) luxury toilets (with separate accessible toilet for disabled and baby changing), thermostatically controlled heating, stage and dance floor, fully integrated sound system with PA, speakers and wireless microphone for speeches. The dance floor is ‘cocooned’ with twinkly starlit black side and ceiling curtains and a gorgeous mirror ball hangs from the ceiling along with other DJ lighting.
We can accommodate up to 200 guests for a wedding breakfast and up to 300 guests for the evening party. There are a number of room configurations and layouts depending on numbers but we are happy to be as flexible as possible to accommodate your requirements. Although The Arboretum is beautifully decorated already, it is still a blank canvas which you are welcome to decorate in any way you wish.
You are welcome to get married on site in one of four wedding ceremony areas. For those wishing to be married outside, the first is our Lavender Walk Gazebo set at the end of a gorgeous long wedding aisle. The second is our tranquil Orchard Garden Gazebo situated behind the marquee which has breathtaking panoramic views of beautiful apple and pear orchards, rolling hills and bluebell woodland. For those liking the idea of an inside ceremony (or in case the weather is inclement on the wedding day) you can be married in either the inside ceremony area at the end of The Arboretum or you may decide that you like the idea of utilising our gorgeous Apple Barn for your wedding ceremony for a different ‘feel’ for part of your day.
The BarnYard is magical also at night. As dusk falls the landscaped grounds around the marquee and the entranceway light up with thousands of fairy lights strung from the trees, the gazebos, the pergola and uplighters in the foliage, making a stunning impact for your evening guests as they arrive and for you to enjoy while having ‘al fresco’ drinks on the lawn.
We believe that once you have had a showround you will be blown away with how gorgeous everything is.
You’d need to see it all to believe it – it definitely has an incredible WOW factor and is totally stunning.
