Tell me about the ceremony
Couples are invited to tie the knot in the 300-year old Rickety Barn, a lovingly restored traditional timber barn with solid oak beams and wrought iron chandeliers. With twinkling fairy lights, it’s the perfect space to say ‘I do’. Seating up to 150 guests, it also features a ‘nook’ on the second floor, the ideal spot for a photographer or musician.
Tell me about the reception
After the ceremony has taken place, invite your guests to enjoy reception drinks in the modern Moat Barn with its sophisticated bar, spilling out on to the pretty landscaped gardens to mingle amongst the peacocks. The Bridge Barn is the setting for your wedding breakfast at Bassmead Manor Barns. Modern and flooded with natural daylight, spectacular features include a dramatic timbered ceiling and impressive oak doors offering views across the gardens and moat. A delicate, neutral colour scheme gives you the opportunity to create your own style on a blank canvas, while its elegant simplicity needs little other than some beautiful floral arrangements. The on-site catering and events team will work with you to create delicious food for your wedding day. Menus are expertly prepared and beautifully presented, giving you and your guests a spectacular dining experience. Every element of the day is bespoke and tailored to your needs, from the more formal wedding breakfast, to theatrical street food, barbecues, canapés and cocktails.
Is there accommodation on site?
You won't want your day to end so, with that in mind, newlyweds can spend the night in Dove Cottage – your very own honeymoon cottage. For your closest friends and family, Appletree Cottage features seven beautifully designed bedrooms. Enjoy a breakfast together the following morning to share stories of a wonderful day.
We simply cannot thank Jenny and the Bassmead team enough for helping to make our wedding day extra special. If you're thinking of booking here - just go and have a visit and you'll see why it took our breath away! There is so much space here - so even if it's raining on your day, you won't feel closed in. And if it is dry, there are plenty of great places to go and get unique photos - from the bridge with moat, to that famous blue door and the fields with peacocks. Every inch of this place is photogenic.
