We were blown away by Monkton barn and Peter on our first viewing! It was such an incredible space that enabled us to really make our day our own. In the run up to the day itself, Peter was available for planning "parties" which were a true highlight of our wedding preparation and always sparked such brilliant ideas. He was incredible in helping to navigate the torrential rain the week of our wedding and created lots of plan Bs should we need them. This was hugely appreciated and felt like a true partnership.
We split our day between the meadow for the drinks reception and wedding breakfast and then hosted the evening inside the barn. This meant we could create a real difference between night and day and no need to worry about change over times etc. The meadow has stunning views and is an incredible space to really let your hair down and celebrate with everyone. The courtyard and barn were perfect for the evening, plenty of room for the band, drinks, dancing and best of all a fire for drunken marshmallows.
Monkton barn really was the perfect space for our wedding day and a place that will always hold very fond memories.
Monkton Barn Galleries (Marlow) was our chosen option for our wedding reception venue in September 2011. The venue itself is a typical English barn with authentic and enchnating characteristics, set an easily accessible rural location. Ideal if you are looking for something a little more special.
We loved the 'blank canvass' approach that the barn offers and Peter Aldiss is a very friendly and accommodating owner - which made our lives a lot easier during the planning process. By and large we sourced our own suppliers for the day, using mostly local businesses - all of whom Peter now has his database so they should be containable via him.
The barn itself is a good size for 125 guests. It has excellent acoustics. You can also put a marquee on the side of it if you need more space.
The day itself was excellent. Everything came together to provide a joyous occasion. The reception turned into a great party when the band arrived; all enhanced by the venue itself.
Overall Monkton Barn Galleries provided the perfect wedding reception location for us and our guests. It helped make our special day even more memorable and comes highly recommended from us.
We had just the best time here at my daughters wedding with a Marquee on the meadow overlooking a patchwork of farmland. We also hired the barn for the caterers use, the toilets and guiet area for those that wanted it. Our hosts of Monkton Barn Galleries are very relaxed and helpful and joined us for a glass of bubbly in the evening. We chose this venue initially because we could use our own caterers and bring in our own drinks which greatly reduced the cost of the wedding and because of the location we were able to have a live band. I would most certainly reccmmend it and have done so many time. Thankyou Wendy & Peter.
