Do you allow outside caterers?
For a number of reasons, we no longer work with outside caterers and/or food trucks (we're happy to explain all if you choose to visit!). We are proud to offer couples the brilliant services of Monkton's Rustic Table, experts in all things food + drink and overseen by Michelin award-winning Executive Chef, James Knight. For specialist catering requirements, we work with a small group of trusted partners to bring you a wedding banquet to remember!
Do you offer outside weddings?
Yes, we do! It's all about choice here at Monkton Barn - marry on our meadow out in the open air, or make use of our capri marquees available to hire should you like some shelter. Alternatively, marry in our charming woodland dell - a dedicated space available for your ceremony, just a 5 minute walk from the main barn.
Do you have accommodation?
During the summer months, Glamping is available on the meadow; a great option for festival-style weddings! Nearby hotels provide everything from basic overnight stays, to luxurious 5-star suites. We are pleased to be able to offer our couples and their guests preferential rates at a well-regarded hotel chain, just 5 minutes drive away.
What is the capacity at Monkton Barn?
The barn and its marquee can accommodate up to 200 for a standing reception; seated dining up to 150 and approximately 100 for a civil ceremony in the barn. Ceremonies can also take place in the larger marquee. On the meadow we can accommodate up to approximately 450 guests. Additional marquees can be hired in via one of our preferred suppliers.
Do you offer exclusive use of the venue?
Yes - each event at Monkton Barn enjoys exclusive use of the whole venue including the barn and its marquee, the courtyard, meadows and woodland.
Grace and I cannot thank you enough for the time and effort put into making our special day so perfect! Our guests were all full of compliments; ranging from how beautiful the venue was, how the friendly yet professional the staff were, and how the food was the best they’d ever had at a wedding. We will definitely be recommending you guys to friends in the future! All the best Sam & Grace x

How do we ever begin to thank you?! You hosted our wedding on 27th August 2022 and it is a date that that will stay in our memories, not just because we got married! Genuinely one of the most accommodating teams ever. Nothing was too big of an ask. Everyone was so friendly and attentive. Our day was beautiful and everyone raved about the venue. We could not have had the wedding of our dreams without you. Josh you absolute legend! You made sure we could just sit back and enjoy the day knowing that you had everything under control. And a thank you to Wendy… two people who do not like their photos being taken, now believe we are models! You made us feel so comfortable and we cannot recommend you enough. Overall - the day of our dreams. Thank you so much to everyone involved.
We cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work, support and enthusiasm in helping us to create our perfect day. We loved every minute of the lead-up and the big day itself. A special thanks to Josh and Joe for helping everything to come together; to Wendy and Georgie for putting us at ease and helping us enjoy all the photo ops; and to Peter for being such a welcoming and warm presence! We had the most wonderful time and will be singing your praises for years to come!
Thank you so much for hosting our wedding party. It was everything we hoped for, and more. The food, staff and lead up were all fantastic. We can't thank you enough!
