Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Each wedding held at Barn Drift has been very different and equally special! We have felt extremely honoured to be a small part in each families special moment and love nothing more than guests returning for other events.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Enjoy it.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

So many! But always each families own creativity used to decorate Barn Drift inside and out - sometimes with masses of home made props and sometimes just a few wild flowers grown in pots to add to the already dreamy terraces at Barn Drift.
