Information about the venue
A vintage horse drawn plough fixed to a log signifies you’ve reached Gildings Barn and gives an indication of the traditional English countryside barn scenario awaiting you. As a recommended supplier for this venue I shoot there regularly and it’s always a joy to return to such a fantastic venue with endless photographic opportunities. Surrounded by open fields, mature woodland in the rural village of Newdigate near Dorking, this is one of my favourite barns and is a tranquil, yet charming and romantic venue to host a celebratory event and create both happy memories and stunning photographs.
The site consists of interconnecting barns – the Gildings, Threshold, and Side barns – attractively arranged around courtyard and garden amenities and creating a perfect setting for both indoor and outdoor celebrations.
Great wedding photo opportunities
The larger of the barns, Gildings, at 16 metres long, is ideal for both dining and entertaining. Constructed using oak timber from the devastating storm of the early 1980s the barn has been transformed from a traditional hay storing area for dairy herds into a function room of outstanding beauty. Its high ceilings have been maintained and the oak beam struts, panelling and stone floors evoke a natural countryside ambience. Tried and tested local caterers are readily available to cater for all tastes and budgets – from a traditional hog roast to an informal buffet style reception – an individual selection of wedding fare will delight your guests. Add in your own style of evening entertainment or live music from stages purposely designed within our barns and you have the basis for a truly memorable occasion. You could even add in extra marquees, bouncy castles for the children, games out on the lawns, the possibilities are endless.
We believe this venue combines sophistication with style, a blank canvas designed for you to decorate according to your own personal style, inject the colour scheme of your choice, create your ultimate romantic wedding celebration and make dreams become a reality at this stunning wedding venue……..

“These are stunning Murray! Thank you so much for capturing our day for us – you were fab and everyone said how lovely you were!” Clare & James
“Murray was excellent both before, during and after the wedding. He showed us his portfolio at the time of booking (at a face-to-face meeting) and his real life style (rather than choreographed photos) was something that really appealed to us. Despite it raining on the day (for 1 hour) Murray kept a cool head and got the formal photos done in a back-up location. We were really happy with how the photos came out and would recommend Murray in a heartbeat.” – Mark & Scarlett
