Could I just pass on our sincere thanks for what was for us the perfect wedding. Absolutely everything we wanted came true, and everybody present was so effusive in their praise about the venue, the food, the atmosphere, and the service from you guys. We couldn’t have wanted for anything else. Thank you!

Pauline & I would just like to say a huge thank you to you and all the team at Lains Barn for giving us the most fantastic reception for our wedding. The setting is amazing and with the table layout, the incredible food and decorations it just completed a perfect day for us and all our friends and family. All the guests were blown away by everything you provided. All of the staff and Nigel in particular went more than the extra mile to make it a perfect reception. Thank you all so very much.

We will never be able to thank you enough for making our wedding day so very special! Every detail of our day was just fantastic and so many of our friends & family commented on the beautiful venue, delicious food and amazing staff! I would like to say a particularly huge thank you to Nigel who was incredible the day before, and throughout the wedding day! He guided us gently through last minute decisions, was so kind, cheerful and thoughtful. He just made us feel so special and kept communicating with us the whole time, he just made everything go SO smoothly! Also to Rachel for all the pre-wedding work! Thank you for all the email support over such a long period of time, for being so helpful and reassuring as we arrived at the venue! Those things make a huge impact. Both Nigel and Rachel have really given us such fantastic service so deserve a special mention, but absolutely all your staff were terrific! Please do pass on our thanks to them too! We will certainly be recommending you to absolutely everyone we ever meet… Thank you for our perfect day!

Where do I start? The family-run team behind Lains Barn made every stage of our wedding – from our first visit to the big day – an absolute joy. We had the most perfect day. The barn is utterly beautiful, from the original stone tiled floor to the huge doors, which when open, invite the most beautiful light in. The barn already has beautiful fairy lights running the length of its ceiling – we also added some (LED-powered) candles and the result was breathtaking – perfect for our ceremony, which we had inside. It’s worth noting that even our celebrant sang the praises of the Lains Barn team when we initially met – always a good sign! Then the food – totally out-of-this world! Lains are really open to customising your menu to suit, and we opted for a delicious salmon starter, braised ox cheek main and sticky toffee pudding – it was truly one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten (and our guests agreed). As we had everything in the barn – ceremony, lunch and party – there was a lot needing to be moved around, and the Lains team did it seamlessly. Thank you Team Lains for the most incredible day of our lives.

Hello Rachel and Team at Lains Barn. I wanted to thank you all for organising and managing a great event for my daughter’s wedding on Saturday. The whole day went like a dream, everything ran smoothly, all our guests had a great time and we all left on an euphoric high. This was in large part due to the lovely venue (I know we got very lucky with the weather!) and the wonderful hospitality and efficiency of all the staff throughout the day. We had lots of positive comments from our guests about the venue itself, the food (by the way, the pizza’s at the end of the day, were a particular hit!) and the helpfulness of the staff. Thank you so much for making this a memorable day for the whole family.
