Right from our first visit we knew the Great Barn Devon was the only place we wanted to get married in and, at every step, we were thrilled with our decision.
Our family and friends have not stopped talking about what a beautiful venue it is and how well looked after everyone was.”
Thank you so much.
Bex & Katie
Thank you, not only for everything you did on the day, but everything leading up to it too – the days before were some of the best.
We wish you all the best for the countless happy couples we know will follow us.”
Clare & Andrew
By the following day I was already feeling nostalgic and wishing we could do it all again. Please know that the Great Barn Devon will always have the most special place in our hearts, and we hope to visit again for a future anniversary and relive the most perfect of days.”
Mary & Jonny
Everything you did for us was absolutely outstanding from start to finish. Not only did you look after us but absolutely everything was thought about and then some!
You really do such an exceptional thing at the Great Barn Devon, but what that ‘thing’ is – we believe is called magic!!”
Much love and thanks
Mr & Mrs Arnold
We honestly can’t thank you enough for all your help and support both before and on the day itself – you really do have something very special with The Great Barn Devon.
So many of our guests commented on how beautiful it was and how amazing all the staff were, which was lovely to hear, so thank you.
You were both such a joy to plan the wedding with and we’ll miss our trips to the Barn very much.”
Thank you again.

“John, Emma, Susie, & Claire
We don’t know where to begin thanking you all … but we’ll try …
Two people who never thought they’d get married – have been to hundreds of weddings .. and always thought it seemed stressful and that weddings were all the same! Well you changed everything. The second we walked into your most stunning venue things changed for us!
Not only is the Great Barn the most stunning place I’ve ever been too .. but the atmosphere, warmth and love in it is from all of you lovely people! We felt listened to, cared for and relaxed from start to finish.
Emma – you always reassuring .. sending me lovely recommendations and meeting me and my mum on those first days, John for your endless charisma, help, fun and attention to detail .. and Susie for simply being the most beautiful, creative, kind human being .. who kept me nothing but calm before I walked down the aisle. I won’t forget that moment!
From the gorgeous barn, to the flowers, gardens, cottages, elderflower bubbly, doggies and team! We cannot be more overwhelmed by you giving us, our families and friends the best day we’ve had.”
Much love and thanks

I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for making Daisy and Oliver’s wedding (2nd July) so amazing. It was the most wonderful day ever, due hugely to the spectacular location and the management and planning by the both of you. Everything about it was superb and ran so smoothly despite the huge numbers. We had so many lovely comments about the setting – the beautiful Devon countryside, the Barn, the gardens.”
Please pass on my sincere thanks to your team on the day, who were extremely professional and helpful and got on with their work unnoticed.
Once again, our sincere thanks for a beautiful wedding day at a beautiful venue, which will always have great memories.”
Our friends have not stopped talking about how fantastic The Great Barn is, and your help with all aspects of the day really did make a difference.”
Many thanks to you and your team,

John your organisational skills and eye for detail made all the parts of the day come together wonderfully. We cannot stop thinking about our perfect day and how it was better than we could have ever imagined – thank you!
Emma Solley has recently informed us that we’ve been chosen to feature in a future WED magazine in one of their real weddings articles. We thought you may be interested as it will be great publicity for The Great Barn. We will keep you updated on when it will be published.”
Wishing you all the best in the future and will be sure to pop in to see you next time we are in Devon.
Lots of Love,

Your care and attention to detail and total dedication were visible for all to see – brilliant lighting, sparkling crockery and superbly set tables.
I particularly liked the illumination of the lavender pots on the stand of the reception – very special and also the heart decoration on the wall looked superb. We had a wonderful day and wish you both every success for the future.”

It goes without saying that the Barn and grounds were spectacular, but it was the way we were made to feel special by you both that will stay in our hearts.
We truly felt as if we were the only people who had and ever would get married, because so much time and focus was given.
John, you made it extra special and I will always remember being ‘Miss Rachel’. It was so lovely to enjoy the day before the wedding so much, and I loved seeing Pud as well!
On our way home, the day afterwards, David said that he felt sad that we would now have no reason to see you both again!
Thank you again. A tiny piece of our hearts and love will be in your Barn forever.”
Lots of love,
Rachel and David xxx
P.S. Gidleigh Park was fantastic John. The 8 course tasting menu was amazing!

We really appreciate the warm welcome you gave us and all the things that you did on the day and in the run up which made the barn so perfect for us and all our guests.
An extra special thanks for rescuing us when our classic car didn’t show as well – you really went above and beyond the call of duty to make everything run smoothly.
Mum and Dad also want to pass on their gratitude for helping with the clear up operations on the Sunday – it certainly made things a lot easier on them.”
Ellie and John Taylor xx
“Thank you so much for hosting our wedding at the end of October. We had an amazing day and The Great Barn is a perfect venue. We searched high and low for the night venue so we know that The Great Barn really is the best venue in Devon.
One of our favourite things was that you really made us feel special. It is the personal touch, the amazing attention to detail and the fantastic building/location that make the Great Barn unique. The simple complement from most guests was just “WOW!”, and that pretty much sums it up!”
All the best,
Em and Matt
You were both so wonderful and ensured that it was the most fantastic day of our lives. We cannot thank you enough for how wonderful it was!”
Hayley and Tom
We received so many compliments and many of these are due to you for all your hard work and preparation behind the scenes. Without you, it would not have been such a special (and unstressful for us!) day.”
Winn and Martin Costin
So from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you, because you made our dreams a reality on the most special day of our lives.”
All our love,
Claudette and Chris xxx
