The place you choose to hold your wedding celebration becomes the canvas on which you’ll be painting your happy memories. It’s a big decision, and one that will set the tone for many more of the choices you make when planning your perfect day.
At Barns & Yard, we’ve created a space that offers all the comforts of a contemporary venue fused with the history and romance of ancient barns.
We want you to feel right at home here, so our barns and cottages are available for three-day exclusive private hire, allowing you to settle in and feel relaxed and ready to celebrate the way you deserve to.
A Luxurious Blank Canvas
The renovation of the barns and cottages has been a real labour of love, and we’re so proud of the finished result. The spaces are simple but beautiful, with scrubbed oak beams, dark grey flagstones or warm oak floorboards, and lots of clean lines, large windows and contemporary design touches.
We’re a blank canvas venue, but we’re anything but bland. You can put your own stamp on each of the spaces, whether your preference is for simple elegance, artful quirk, or all-out opulence. From Spring 2019 we will be licensed for civil ceremonies, so you can choose to have your whole day with us, or else head over to Barns & Yard for a serious party after a ceremony at one of the stunning local churches.
We can accommodate up to 100 guests for a seated wedding breakfast in the barns, with space for a marquee on the lawn should your guest list be larger than this, and there’s sleeping space for 10 in our three gorgeous cottages.
Transform our woodland walkway into an enchanted forest, set up a luxury tipi overlooking the lake, say your vows amid hundreds of years of history in the rustic barns, or dance in the colourful wildness of our flower meadow. We believe in a highly flexible and personalised service – you’re free to plan your day your way, down to the tiniest detail.
We are fully licensed for civil ceremonies, with several lovely spaces available for you to choose from. Inside, there’s the majestic oak Threshing Barn, which can seat 100 guests, the light-filled Cartshed or the warm and intimate Cider Barn, which holds up to 40 guests.
Outside, you can seat 100 guests in our landscaped Courtyard, as you stand beneath the stalls to say your vows.
While not licensed, the shores of our lake or our woodland glade make for the most magical of settings for a celebrant led ceremony or humanist wedding.
If you would prefer to use our venue for your reception only, and have a church ceremony first, there are several beautiful country churches in and around our local villages. Great Malvern is home to the majestic Priory and Little Malvern Priory, an absolute gem, nestled on the slopes of the Malvern Hills only five minutes drive from Barns & Yard.
Please note if you are planning a civil ceremony at Barns & Yard, this should be arranged directly with Worcester Register Office. Please call the office on 01905 768 181 for more details.
It’s your day, and our luxury barn venue is yours to decorate and celebrate in however you see fit. However, we know that wedding planning is a huge undertaking, so we’ve curated a selection of seriously talented suppliers in our helpful handbook Tools, Tackle and Fodder (available upon booking). These wedding industry experts will be able to help you bring your day to life in an artful, elegant and spectacular fashion.

It’s often the smallest, unexpected details that will make your day most memorable. We love to help create wonderful surprises for you and your guests, and we’re a pretty creative bunch. If you’ve got a one-in-a-million idea that you’re not sure how you’ll pull off, get in touch and we’ll see if we can help, or we will put you in touch with the people who can.
