We have a civil wedding licence so you can get married in the barn in the afternoon and follow on straight into your reception.
There are lots of churches local to Cripps, so if you choose to get married in a church, then you can still use Cripps Barn as your venue for your reception, wedding breakfast and evening party.
We have a beautiful oak ceremony shelter in the glade next to Cripps, which is also licensed for civil ceremonies. An additional £1.20 per guest is applicable for the hire of the outside chairs.
A wedding party in a smart hotel can be impressive, but some people are looking for something more informal, more romantic, more rural, where children can run around, where you can have a bonfire, where your guests can camp instead of driving home, where it doesn’t matter if a drink is spilled and where the party can move outside in good weather. This is what we offer at Cripps Barn.
Most venues will close around midnight, just when everyone is really enjoying the party. At Cripps your hire period runs until 1.00 a.m., when the music stops and the bar closes.
