Our barn can accommodate up to 150 seated guests on hand made wooden banqueting tables and benches. We can also cater for a further 100 evening guests. Built as the farm’s winter machinery barn we have a large open area perfect for intimate ceremonies and an evening spent dancing the night away.
The barn is a labyrinth of cosy corners and lounges for intimate chats and alternative dining options. We have an antique bar set within the barn in the exposed brick workshop. The barn is tastefully decorated with period furniture and vintage lighting to create a timeless ambience. All of these fixtures and fittings are included in your weekend hire price. Please contact us for a full list of what’s included.
We understand how important it is for some couples to want to provide drinks for their loved ones. From our own journey we also know how hard it is to find this option without associated costs.
We are therefore very proud to offer a range of options for the bar: one of which allows you to select and provide your own beverages for your wedding day. Our lovely staff will chill and serve all wines, beers, spirits and soft drinks from our antique bar free of charge to your guests.
Alternatively we also offer the option of a well stocked cash bar for your guests to buy drinks from. At all times you will be supported by the Willow Marsh team.
If you want to do a bit of both, contact us to find out how flexible we can be.
Set in 100 acres of rolling grassland, lakes and marshes our family farm is completely unique. Our marshes and lakes are bursting with bright green botanicals that make for incredible photography and we are more than happy for you to use these for a pre shoot before your wedding day.
As a former dairy farm we have plenty of space for glamping and rustic old buildings like our straw loft perfect for activities and photos. We are situated on the borders of Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire in the heart of the rural East Midlands.
Our on site farm kitchen is a fitted commercial kitchen made available for your chosen catering team. Our wonderful list of approved catering suppliers are available on request. We ask that you choose from one of six catering companies on our recommended list for your wedding breakfast. We are more flexible when it comes to evening food and are really happy to accommodate all food trucks and street food trailers.
The kitchen sits aside our Grand Barn and benefits from a large walk in refrigerator, gas ovens, warming facilities and a large double sink.
