Do contact us with your own queries (T 01279 876661 or email) but here are some FAQs to start you off!
Q How many people can the barn hold?
A 150 can sit for a meal, up to 250 are possible for the evening reception, and 100 can sit for a civil ceremony, though more can view it.
Q How much will my reception cost?
A We’ve included a guideline cost for an average wedding on Your Wedding/Event page. Costs can depend on guest numbers, whether you have a pay bar…how lavish your menu is etc. Just tell us your plans and we’ll happily work out the price for your particular requirements.
Q How far in advance do we have to pay?
A We need half the barn hire fee to accept the booking, then the remainder of the hire charge is not due until 16 weeks before your event.
Q Is the Barn warmed in the winter months?
A Yes – the Barn has full central heating on for your cold wedding day!
Q Does Pledgdon Barn have accommodation?
A No and that’s why we supply clients with details for many local hotels/B&Bs and have also negotiated discounts at a nearby 4 star hotel. We can put you in touch with cab/taxi companies too.
Q Can we bring our own caterers in?
A Yes, that is sometimes possible though there is a fee – ask us about this.
Q Can we bring our own drinks in?
A Yes, and we’ll quote for supplying bar staff and glasses etc. – and guide you on quantities to obtain too.
Q If we want even more space, can we add on a marquee & a play area?
A Yes, you can. £150 fee plus the cost of your marquee hire. You can even have a bouncy castle on the lawn if you wish!
Q Can you recommend a photographer?
A Yes, we can recommend all sorts of useful people from photographer to DJs – click here.
Q Can we decorate the Barn to suit our theme?
A Yes, every client seems to have their own ideas on decor and that’s fine. Obviously, the putting up of decor mustn’t harm the Grade II listed building but apart from that – enjoy creating your theme and decor! Have a look at our facebook page for more photos: www.facebook.com/weddingbarn
Q What’s the policy about dealing with ‘merry stragglers’ at the end!
A We ask that in advance the hirer nominates an adult + car who will remain responsible at the event, staying to the end, ensuring all persons have safely left the barn/curtillage (eg last guests collected by taxis/mini bus etc).
