Welcome to your perfect countryside wedding at Lains Barn – a beautifully restored, family-run venue with a quintessentially rural setting, in the heart of Oxfordshire.


Is our dog allowed to be a part of our wedding?

Happy couples are welcome to bring your furry friend along with you. However, please confirm with us beforehand if you do decide to bring them; and an individual, who must remain sober, should be nominated to look after the dog on the day. Once the wedding breakfast is over, we kindly ask that any dogs leave the premise.

Is corkage an option at Lains Barn?

Most definitely! If there's a certain wine (or fizz) that you love which reminds you of a certain moment then just speak with our bar manager who will be happy to help arrange this with you and advise you of the different corkage charges.

Does Lains Barn have a sound system?

Lains Barn has a fully integrated sonos surround sound system in both the barn, the bar, and outside. Meaning you don't have to worry about how you're going to create your perfect entrance moment; you just have to plug your phone in, hand it over to a member of your wedding party, and wait for your cue. We also have an integrated PA system with a microphone that can be used for readings, speeches and announcements.

Are children allowed at Lains Barn?

Absolutely! We are a family-friendly venue and welcome everyone, big or small. We do ask that if you have more than six 4 - 12 year-olds attending your event that you engage with the owners before booking to discuss your childcare options. That way, parents and other guests alike can enjoy your special day with peace of mind about the little ones of the party.

Is there overnight accommodation available?

We don't offer overnight accommodation on-site, however, couples getting married at Lains Barn have the special option of staying in Barton House; an exclusive, luxury Georgian Manor run by the same family as the Barn. Barton House is just two minutes up the road, and offers 9 rooms that can sleep up to 18 people - perfect for you and your closest friends and family to relax in.


I cannot fault Lains Barn from start to finish. The food was delicious and a decent portion, the venue is enclosed and private which is great for keeping guests all together and the team were very helpful and accomodating. We had our wedding booked in 2021 but had to move it to 2022 due to Covid and they didn't charge us anything extra and even honoured their 2021 prices for food and drink. All in all, a top notch venue with staff to match.

Honestly we had the best day ever, there was nothing I could fault except for the speed the day went by, it was so fast I was so sad to leave. So many of our guests have commented on how lovely the venue was too, I think everybody enjoyed that it felt quite intimate and it was just gorgeous. We were very lucky with the weather.

Amazing experience from start to finish! we decided to have our wedding with you when we booked it 3 years ago, we have obviously gone through delays like most people and they have been so helpful moving us and looking after us. They made us feel really special and it was all worth it for the best day we have ever had. I can’t thank them all enough for being so helpful via email, phone call and in person. Martin/Rachel & Sarah - for arranging everything and being quick to come back with any suggestions or questions they/we may have. We have always felt at ease and despite a few other stresses always felt we trusted you from day one. Katy & Carl, we can’t thank them enough for how smoothly they ran everything on the day, they were so helpful in sorting out the best way to do the day and answer queries that we had, we could not have been happier with how the day went and anything we asked was never a bother. Everyone was so impressed with them and amazed at the whole day. We want to do it all over again of course :)

We are so happy we chose Lains Barn for our April 2022 wedding. They were really accommodating when we had to postpone in 2021 due to Covid-19, which was a huge relief. When it came to arrangements for our 2022 wedding, Katy and Carl met with us beforehand to discuss all our plans for the day in detail - we really got the feeling that both are very experienced and knew how to deal with all eventualities, which made us feel really calm about the day. The venue was presented beautifully on our wedding day - so many guests commented on what a stunning venue it was. Our guests with children also appreciated how contained the venue was, so the children were safe to run around on the lawn in view of parents in other parts of the venue. Katy and Carl were were a reassuring presence throughout - making sure everything ran smoothly - and the staff were really efficient and helpful, so we didn’t have any worries about managing the day itself. We can’t recommend this venue enough!

Where to begin? After looking at many venues and having a few options on the table, one viewing of Lains Barn was enough to knock all the other venues out of the running. Throughout the many months of planning, there are not enough kind things I could say about how helpful and hands on the owners and events staff were in supporting us plan our special day and accommodating any requests we had with no issues whatsoever. By the time the wedding day came, my husband and I felt so comfortable in knowing the team would ensure our wedding would go exactly according to plan, but we never could have predicted just how perfect everything would be. Everyone at Lains worked so tirelessly to give us the day of our dreams and I cannot count the amount of guests who have called or messaged to compliment on how stunning the venue was or how friendly and professional the staff were throughout. As the bride, I particularly appreciated how experienced the staff were with all the big and little things that can cause some stress during a wedding and how they were prepared for it all. I could go on and on with praises but from myself, my husband and all our guests, thank you Lains for the perfect wedding. Everything went right, better than I could have ever imagined, and I will never forget the care and attention everyone from Martin (owner) to Rachel (planner), Katy (on the day organiser) and all the staff-from catering to grounds and to the bar-put forward to give us the wedding of our dreams. Many, many thanks and much gratitude! 10/10 venue, would highly recommend.
