What's your capacity?
We can host weddings for up to 200 people and we have several unique event spaces in and around the house for you and your guests to enjoy, and they have all been designed to give you total freedom as to how and where you would like to experience individual elements of your day. Say ‘I do’, eat, drink and dance – in or out (or shake it all about) – you decide.
What about the food and drink?
We work exclusively with an amazing caterer called Caravan Made. Their food is incredible, all drinks are included within their menus and their service is friendly and professional. They do not disappoint. Yum!
Where will we stay?
We have 4 spacious and individually-designed ensuite guest rooms that can hold up to 12 people. For your other guests we have a comprehensive local accommodation brochure that we can send you.
Will the venue be exclusively ours?
Always! The venue hire includes one day hire of all the venue spaces and two night's of accommodation (for up to 12 people). Weddings and events never overlap. We (Jo and Duncan) live in the upper floors of the house and are on hand to help and advise whenever needed.
What about sustainability?
We strive to be environmentally conscious and sustainable, both personally and within our business. We love to reuse and repurpose old materials (you'll hopefully spot a lot of this when you look around) and we try to reduce our waste as much as possible. All our kitchens (including the guest one that you will use) include recycling stations. From 2023 we will be exclusively working with one catering company, Caravan Made, partly because they share these values and have a local and seasonal approach to their gastronomy (but also because they are very nice people and their food is delicious!).
When my partner and I were looking for a wedding venue, we wanted a certain something we couldn’t quite put our finger on. As we trekked across Barcelona, hoping from venue to venue, we were buzzing at the thought of our big day. Just when we thought things couldn’t get any more exciting, we arrived at This Must Be The Place. Approach from a winding road off the beaten track, everything suddenly came into view and our jaws dropped. The word wedding ‘venue’ simply doesn’t do it justice. The beautiful reclaimed barn with its timeless renovations provide a brilliant mix of old and new. Walking around the property we were taken aback by the incredible views, the attention to detail (beautiful mirror balls spotted in multiple locations) and the big spaces giving multiple options on layouts. We opted for an outside ceremony and dinner, moving inside the converted barn for dancing afterwards. It made for the perfect transition as the day progressed. Having family stay on site worked perfectly too. Each bedroom has kept its original features whilst bringing a premium look and feel. Now this is all well and good but there is one thing that truly made it so special… Jo and Duncan. They own, run and live at the property and have poured their hearts and souls into making it what it is today. Their passion, creativity and genuine love for our big day made all the difference. As a same sex couple, we can sometimes be reserved in opening up, but Jo and Duncan made us completely at ease and even entertained our specialist guest (Drag Queen A’Whora) whilst the guests gathered for our big finale. We knew straight away that we had to get married here. We left our first viewing saying to ourselves ‘this must be it, this must be the one…This Must Be The Place!’
When we came across TMBTP we knew instantly that this was where we were going to get married. Not only is the venue, location and views completely out of this world, but Jo, Duncan and Indy are just incredible people! Planning a wedding abroad would have been a very different experience without them! They are easy going, very professional, kind, supportive and have a wealth of experience. They couldn’t have helped us enough, which made the planning experience far less stressful than we had anticipated! Jo and Duncan supported us with recommendations and with the organisation of our vendors, and were super helpful with the abundance of questions we fired their way! They encouraged us to use the spaces within the venue in whatever way we wished, and helped us to create the vision for our wedding day that we had imagined! We had the most amazing feedback from our guests, with some wanting to plan their own weddings at TMBTP in the future! We honestly cannot recommend them enough!! Thankyou Jo, Duncan and Indy for welcoming us into your home, and helping us to create the most incredible memories that we will cherish forever x
Jo and Duncan (and Indy!) are magical people who gave us a wedding that so many people will never forget, and a start to our married life that we will remember and treasure forever. We are so glad we found this place and these people. TMBTP is a truly unique and wonderful place but they have created much more than just a 'place' - it is most definitely a vibe. Our day was planned to down to the minute (Jack is a global projects director so there was no chance it wouldn't be!), but it still surprised us and surpassed all expectations! We were looking for European beach weddings and focussed on venues in Barcelona. TMBTP came up and was obviously very different. It was better. We started with a video call with Jo in September last year and she showed us round the masia. We fell in love with the views, the atmosphere and the sheer style of the place. We lived in East London for years and this place oozes that same cool and possibility - the fact that you have this chic but blank canvas and different spaces that they absolutely encourage you to use and make your own for your special day is something quite rare in a wedding venue too. If you are looking for something truly unique and 'you', this must be your place! The various suppliers that they have available to recommend and who are full of fantastic ideas and flexibility are also a dream when you are planning a destination wedding. And we cannot speak highly enough of Sílvia and Yvette at Caravan Made - they are brilliant at what they do; their food is fantastic, their attention to detail is great and their staff are wonderful, friendly and run a very smooth operation - all vital ingredients for your wedding day. The fact that you are effectively welcomed into Duncan and Jo's home as part of your wedding is something quite special too; they are on hand to help make your planning and actual day as smooth as possible and we are sure that is made so much easier because they care and love what they do. Thank you for giving us such a fantastic wedding, we will always be grateful.
This Must Be The Place was where our dreams came true. We couldn’t have asked for more for a venue: stunning setting, easily accessible from Barcelona, and importantly, the best couple we could have asked for were running it, Jo and Duncan. We had our wedding ceremony on the paddock, so when we got married on a clear day in June our guests looked out beyond us to the beautiful Pyrenees and the stunning landscape between Mas Casamitjana and the mountains on the horizon. Our caterers set up food stalls and we had a buffet-style meal, and then had our party downstairs in the dance floor area. Jo and Duncan went above and beyond to make sure everyone felt right at home and the event ran as smoothly as possible. The next day, we invited our guests back for a brunch which was the perfect ending to our wonderful weekend. We are so pleased that This Must Be The Place will always be special to us, and can’t wait to visit again in the future.
The first time we (virtually) laid eyes on This Must Be The Place, we knew it was everything we could ever dream of and more. We originally hadn’t considered having a destination wedding but not a single venue even came close and we couldn’t stop thinking about those views, so I guess from that moment we both knew that it truly was THE place. From our first FaceTime with Jo & Duncan we knew we were in good hands, despite being in a different country and not stepping foot in our wedding venue until literally the day before our big day, at no point did it feel like a risk. They were so helpful every step of the way and we’re so grateful for Jo, Duncan and Jane their wonderful coordinator for helping make our day as special and ‘us’ as it was. We knew TMBTP was special but no words can describe how incredible it is in the flesh, it surpassed our expectations and our entire day was a complete dream come true. As we approached the venue for the very first time we were both genuinely lost for words. Stunning views, attention to detail and filled to the brim with personality, plus to make things even better, the loveliest team that we couldn’t have done this without. We’ve had so many of our guests tell us it was the best wedding they’ve been to, and we think that compliment is all down to how amazing TMBTP is! We feel so privileged to have tied the knot in such a beautiful place and over the moon that we took the leap. Big love to Jo, Duncan, Jane and of course Indy (who assisted in glittering up our guests on the night time), we can’t thank you all enough!
