Top Wedding Tips

Always keep the budget in mind, don't just think about the venue cost, keep in mind the catering, photographer, decorations, and entertainment.

When looking for a venue keep space in mind, a venue that is too spread out will segregate guests. Having the bar, dance floor, and food tables in the same area will keep everyone together.

Who are your guests? Children and adults alike will need entertainment throughout the day, its good to plan out the day to keep your guests happy. (Happy kids means happy parents)

Thank you from the bottom of your hearts
Selden Barns were absolutely incredible to work with since day one of booking our Wedding day with them. They responded very quickly to any queries we had. We had Elaine as our Wedding Coordinator and she was utterly amazing and a complete asset to Selden Barns. Our Wedding day came and was everything we could have wished for. The whole day ran so smoothly and this was down to the Selden Barns Staff. The time keeping for the whole day was flawless. We will be recommending you guys to everyone we know and we will certainly be back to the venue for our 1st Anniversary to use the B&B. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

All I can say is I wanted a fairy tale wedding,I got much much more!
From day one of organizing our wedding 3 years ago,the staff have been so helpful with advising and supporting us on our long journey to our special day. When our special day arrived we were so nervous but the amazing staff made us feel at ease,day before we were decorating the venue they were a massive help and guiding us. Actual wedding started by the bride and her entourage having the most amazing breakfast cooked by the chef and we were waited on hand and foot by a lovely lady in the kitchen,anything we wanted they would sort for us. Unfortunately it rained but it did not spoil our day as the staff kept our spirits up, said our vows then it was on to celebrate with our friends and family. Everyone had such a fabulous time. All I can say is I wanted a fairy tale wedding,I got much much more!

We had the most amazing time!
We got married here Saturday. We’ve had the most amazing time. The venue is stunning, the staff are on point consistently to keep the day running on time and smoothly. Friendly and efficient too. The best part is that you can stay the night here in the beautiful honeymoon suite so you can relax and remember things from the day before within the stunning countryside. Thank you so much .

Beautiful venue with amazing suppliers
What can we say we got married last weekend and had an amazing time, our guests loved it and the day ran without a hitch thanks to Elaine and Rachel our assigned wedding coordinators. They catered to our every need and went above and beyond. The planning in the lead up was informative, helpful and we felt reassured at all times. Would highly recommend to anyone seeking a beautiful venue with amazing suppliers and staff. Would love to do it all again. Thank you guys you made it so special xxxxx

Perfect wedding
As soon as we saw Selden Barns we both knew it was where we wanted to get married. The barn and surrounding areas are beautiful and location was ideal. The wedding coordinators were amazing. Nothing was an issue and they were happy to answer the many questions we had! The on-site accommodation was perfect for all our close family. The setting is very romantic and you wouldn’t find a better venue.
