Peter, where do we even begin! Charlie and I loved your endless enthusiasm, brilliant ideas and all your help from the very get go. Monkton is the most beautiful venue and you make an exceptional host. We couldn’t have imagined a more perfect wedding day. We will forever cherish our memories made here.
Wendy went above and beyond taking the most amazing photos that really did capture the spirit of our wedding. Wendy was friendly and professional and great at gathering and instructing our guests to photos whilst seamlessly blending in. We love all the photos and it was almost an impossible task whittling down the photos for the album. Would definitely recommend Wendy!
A massive thank you for hosting our wedding. We were able to realise our vision of a relaxed, laid-back, crazy day with all of our loved ones. To sum up how we feel; we felt like Monkton was our home and we’d invited all our friends and family for an impromptu house party. Eloise in particular, was exceptional on the day and no task was too much trouble. She even managed to make a highly strung bride feel calm. Amazing food from Mel and OF COURSE, the irreplaceable Peter. Thank you all.
Thank you for making our wedding day dreams come true! We had a day that was far beyond anything we could have imagined. We had so many comments on how memorable and fun the day was. Eloise – you are a saint! Thank you so much. Wendy – you made it run like clockwork. I can’t wait to see the photos. We are so happy we chose Monkton Barn. We couldn’t have asked for more. What a beautiful location and we can’t wait to see the photographs. Many thanks again to everyone.
Thank you so much for sharing our wedding with us and letting all of our guests enjoy your beautiful venue. We loved the Prosecco service by Eloise & Emily and we haven’t heard anything but great things from our guests! The day went smoothly and to plan and all your preferred suppliers made it what is was. Thanks so much for a day we’ll always remember.
We had an incredible time celebrating our wedding here! You made our day such a pleasure! Peter had guaranteed us a sunny day and he fully delivered – no cloud in sight! Our guests’ absolutely loved the venue. It was so lovely. Our day went seamlessly and it was just bliss! Eloise, you are AMAZING! What a treasure you are to the Monkton family. You made us feel so comfortable, we had zero worries! Thanks you again, all our love
We can’t honestly thank you enough for all the wonderful help, advice and kindness that you have shown and provided. Its been one of the best nights of our lives. The best night of my life! And to have you as part of our special day has been amazing. Your venue is fantastic. You promised us fine weather – and that’s exactly what we got! I will leave some room for Camille…but thank you from the bottom of heart – David Thank you so much for everything – you are great and your place is beautiful. You made our wedding day so perfect and magical. We are the happiest! Everything was better than we ever could have dreamed of – thanks again.
We cannot thank you enough for making our day so special – from start to finish you have all been so helpful and relaxed. The day was perfect for us and you all worked so hard to ensure it ran seamlessly. Eloise, thank you for being so positive, smiley and helpful – even at 2am when I am sure you would rather have been tucked up in bed! Thank you so much.
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.
