Top Wedding Tips

Have a “our day must include list” and work this into a timeline. Check that everything fits into your day. All brides say “my day went so fast” so make time to enjoy the things you have planned

When using a DIY venue if you able meet your photographer or caterer at the venue so you can discuss the logistics particularly if they are unfamiliar with the venue.

Delegate – when using a DiY venue there can be a lot to set up and it can be overwhelming. Ask friends and family to help – more often they will want to play a role in making your day perfect.

The venue is amazing and I cannot wait to get married. The barn is not too large and just small enough to be intimate. The grounds are beautiful and will be very colourful in the summer.

Wonderful venue
We were married at Wood Lane in August ‘19 and we had the best day, Laura and all the team at Wood Lane are fantastic, leading up to the day, during and afterwards, everyone was so helpful, any email I sent Laura she was quick to respond and always went out of her way to help.

We decided to hold our wedding in the grain loft, then spent the reception outside playing fete games, we hired Mexican street food and everything ran so smoothly- whilst we were outside Laura and her team transformed the grain loft into our vision, there was one thing she was unsure of and just asked us to take a look so we were happy with the loft before all our guests saw it transformed for the evening sit down meal.

If you want to make your wedding your own and like all the little details then this is the venue for you!

Thank you Wood Lane

We had our wedding at Wood Lane on 13/10/18 and it was a totally perfect day! The facilities and grounds are just wonderful. The entire team of staff there are absolutely excellent and truly cannot do enough for you - in particular, Laura, who is an absolute organisation superstar! They are accommodating and thoughtful and leave nothing to chance, even our guests commented on how helpful and friendly all of the staff were. The turnaround service is executed with precision and the Grain Loft provides a simply lovely venue for your event to take place. Thank you so much Wood Lane!

Got married here on 28/4/2018 and had a wonderful day. All our guests were very complimentary of the venue and we were very pleased with how everything went. Both David and Laura were very helpful and took us through everything we needed to know so that we were able to relax (a bit!) and enjoy the event. All the staff were very helpful and friendly and we’ll have no hesitation recommending Wood Lane to anyone looking for a wedding venue. Thank you all so much!

Just been to your Christmas fayre and loved it. Me and my fiancé Martyn have booked our wedding reception with yourselves in September and we can't wait. Visiting today has cemented in our minds that we have made the right choice in picking Wood Lane as our venue.

We luckily came across Woodlane when they had a slot available 7 months after getting engaged and when we saw the venue, we knew it was exactly what we were looking for. David is absolutely lovely and the team couldn't have been more helpful. As a venue, they are very flexible when meeting your needs and the building itself is beautiful. What really made it for us were the gardens....WOW! We knew we wanted a humanist ceremony outside and it provided the most stunning backdrop. The garden room then provided a quiet, pretty room for our short registry after. We had speeches, tables and dancing upstairs in the grain loft which was stunning and the garden was big enough for us to have a large tipi outside. It was the most beautiful day and we honestly could not have done it without this gorgeous venue and brilliant staff.
