I can't put into words how wonderful our day was as the venue actually went beyond our expectations on the day and Sophie was exceptional in all she did for us. When the day gets underway this venue comes alive and we couldn't have chosen a better place. This was the first and only venue we looked at which says it all. Thank you Sophie & Bridget xx

We got married here just before Easter weekend and it was incredible. The venue was amazing with all the beautiful beams, Sophie and Bridget took a lot of stress off of us and we're so friendly and welcoming. I am so glad we picked this venue especially after our guests also commented about how beautiful the venue was. I will definitely be recommending Smeetham Hall Barns to friends and family.

The team however are just out of this world!! They are so relaxed and accommodating and just work so hard to make the day exactly as you want it! I'm incredibly grateful to the team & I would recommend this venue to anyone!

We got married on the 28th January 2023 at relatively short notice at Smeetham Hall Barn. Right from the off Bridget and Sophie were extremely helpful, so friendly and always on hand with answers and advice about preparing for a perfect wedding day. Along with Splinters Catering, they provided the perfect day for us. Everything ran so smoothly, we didn’t have to even think about anything. The mix of facilities they offer along with being able to provide some alcohol yourself (they amazingly charge no corkage which is very unusual) makes a perfect venue. We received so many compliments about how well the barn and marquee were presented twinkling with fairy lights and looking so cosy and welcoming. Although it was January the whole place is warm and welcoming. The private room for the family to use with a sofa, mirror and table etc is another very welcome addition to store flat shoes or have a moment of quiet time if everything gets too much! We used Wilton & Flower (who work very closely with Smeetham) to hire decoration accessories which took a further element of stress out of things as they set out everything and packed it all away again and we couldn’t have wished for better, it looked stunning and fitted in with the look of the barn perfectly. The bar at local pub prices is another plus point. Overall an excellent choice for a wonderful memorable day!

Perfect for a winter wedding! Bridget and Sophie were amazing and made us feel so special throughout the planning process. The grounds and the barn and simply stunning and we had the most magical wedding there. Bridget and Sophie were also very prompt and responding to any queries we had and were also on hand throughout the day of our wedding to ensure everything ran smoothly. I would thoroughly recommend any couple to go and look at this venue - I bet it also looks great in summer too, but we LOVED the cosy, rustic wintery feel for our winter wedding!
