Information about the venue
How do you fancy getting married in an authentic 700 year old, Grade II* listed barn? Nestled in an historical heritage site known as Manor Farm Site in Ruislip, Greater London, The Great Barn wedding venue is unique and exclusive. It dates from the 13th. century, and is believed to be one of the oldest oak timbered-framed buildings in the country.
Nearby you’ll find the remains of a motte-and-bailey castle from around the time of the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. In 1931 Manor Farm was gifted to the people of Ruislip, and is now run as a community resource within the Ruislip Conservation area. There’s certainly a great deal for you and your guests to explore in this 22-acre historic site, and the photographic opportunities are endless.
The Great Barn was beautifully restored in 2008 and is built to a design known as an aisled barn, with out-shoots running alongside the main supports under the principal roof. It is the perfect space to host 150 guests for your ceremony or 200 for the wedding reception. The spacious barn exudes a truly romantic atmosphere whilst providing a more intimate feel for drinks and canapés before and after the ceremony.
The exposed English oak beams can be artistically festooned with a variety of pretty lights to further enhance the romantic mood for your civil wedding or partnership. For example, fairy lights attached to the row of pillars that run along both sides of the barn will look very appealing, adding sparkle and light; or coloured LED uplighting on dimmers to change the atmosphere in the barn as the day progresses, and dining gives way to dancing.
This will be your Special Day spent with friends and family. Over the forthcoming years you will look at my stunning wedding photographs and the memories of a wonderful, unforgettable day, exchanging vows at The Great Barn in Ruislip, will come flooding back.
