CAN WE HAVE A CIVIL WEDDING?
Yes, we are licensed for 120 guests in the main stone barn and an additional 30 guests can be seated in the adjoining Oak Room.
DO YOU OFFER OUTDOOR CEREMONIES?
We have a beautiful oak ceremony canopy in the glade next to Cripps, which is also licensed for civil ceremonies. In warm, dry weather you can hold your ceremony out here.
WHAT IS YOUR DINING CAPACITY AND CAN WE INVITE ADDITIONAL EVENING GUESTS?
The Oak Room will accommodate up to 150 people on round tables (or 120 people if you choose rectangular tables). Alternatively, up to 84 can sit comfortably to eat in the barn itself. There is room for an additional 100 guests in the evening, for drinks and dancing.
CAN WE USE OUR OWN CATERERS?
The feast is a key element of any special occasion and we are passionate about delivering all our events to an extremely high standard, so we take care of all food and drink in-house. Our excellent team of in-house chefs freshly prepares all food served and you can choose from a range of excellent wine, champagne, beer and spirits.
WHAT IS YOUR CLOSING TIME?
Many venues will close around midnight, just when everyone is really enjoying the party. At Cripps Barn your hire period runs until 1 a.m., so it's only then that your music will stop and the bar will close.
Cripps Barn is the perfect venue! The barn is cosy, warm and rustic and the grounds are lush and beautiful. All our guests were raving about how magical it was. The food and drinks are delicious. Most importantly, the Cripps team is top-notch! They are professional, organized, creative and flexible. They went above and beyond to turn our ideas into reality. It never took them longer than 24 hours to respond to an email, which I have found to be extremely rare in the wedding industry. Thank you so much to everyone at Cripps.
Cripps Barn was the first and only venue we visited when planning our wedding. It was everything and more than we could have wanted. The grounds are just breathtaking, and the inside is just magical. The team were great and so patient with all our questions during the planning process and keeping in touch with them was super easy with their online system, meaning we got responses very quickly, usually within the hour! On the day, the staff were so professional. The guests all commented on how friendly and helpful they were and of course how incredible the venue looked. The food, well that was just out of this world. So so tasty, all the guests practically licked their plates clean. We couldn't recommend Cripps Barn enough and encourage anyone who is looking for a venue to consider Cripps for your wedding, we promise you won't regret it!
It was an absolutely amazing day and it really was the best day of our lives. Everything was perfect - the outside ceremony, the food, staff, the beautiful venue and of course Lucy's help in making sure everything went as smoothly as it did on the day. A lot of our guests have said it was the best wedding they have been to! It really was amazing so thank you again for making the day one that we will never forget.
The barn and grounds are absolutely beautiful, and once the whole place was aglow with twinkly lights and candles and covered in flowers, it honestly felt magical – the perfect setting for our fairy tale wedding. The food was also absolutely delicious – all our guests said how much they enjoyed the meal.
The venue and staff were truly amazing, so polite and organised and really made the best day of our lives so special. I cannot recommend them highly enough. So professional and the attention to details is great. They cover everything you ask for.
