The Reception


As well as a memorable ceremony, Dovecote Barn also offers an intimate reception for gatherings of 100 or less.  After the event, you and your guests can retire to the beautiful courtyard for a welcome drink while we create the perfect scene for your wedding breakfast.  On concluding the meal, allow us to reconfigure the barn once more giving you the space you need to extend the celebrations into the night! If you wish to include evening guests then the barn can fit a total of 140 including your day guests.

Dovecote Barn can also facilitate larger wedding parties of over 100 by offering a bespoke marquee or Tipi situated in one of our picturesque locations.  The marquee is created to your own specification allowing you the opportunity to designate the layout as well as the overall look and feel.  The Tipi has two 'hats' and can seat 120 guests during the day. 

The specified locations are available to use however you wish, whether just a deluxe marquee or perhaps with a carousel, a bouncy castle, or hay bales around a camp fire.  You might even wish to have an Ice Cream Bike to serve you and your guests! 

We are limited only by your imagination!
