Full Description
At Hendall Manor Barns you will be able to create a bespoke day where you can choose from an excellent list of approved caterers to provide the exact food you would like and, along with not charging corkage, you're able to source and supply all of your own drinks at cost. We can recommend florists, photographers, musicians and all things bridal but you are of course welcome to source your own. We are here to help and offer advice should you need it. There have been an extraordinary variety of reception layouts, flowers and themes here at Hendall. Whether you are looking for a relaxed but sophisticated barbeque, vintage style tea party or a formal seated wedding breakfast, the buildings can be easily adapted and decorated to realise your ideas. We are fortunate in being able to provide undercover parking for all guests enabling a dignified and hassle free arrival especially if it is wet. We are also very well equipped for disabled guests with ramps providing access to all areas of the venue. You can get married by civil ceremony, have a celebrant or you may choose to go to hold your ceremony at a local church. We offer the 'dry hire' and exclusive use of the venue rather than wedding 'packages'.

Our amazing wedding day
We got married at Hendall Manor Barns at the end of October. The venue is beautiful with plenty of space both indoors and outside to get creative with how you would like it to look and be decorated. Lots of wonderful photo opportunities too. due to its rural location too. The staff are fantastic. Due to Covid we had to rearrange our date/numbers and they were very supportive and responsive throughout. They have a real passion for weddings and many recommendations to help get you started with suppliers. On the day everything ran smoothly and we were able to just focus on enjoying the day. Throughout planning the team were always on hand to answer questions or for us to pop in and have a look round again. The evening before the wedding I stayed with my Bridesmaids in the accommodation onsite which is perfect. Its fully equipped, spacious and the perfect place to relax and get ready. The evening of the wedding a few friends stayed over in the accommodation where we enjoyed playing Pool &Table Tennis. We stayed in the Piggery (a converted pig sty!) which is again well equipped and beautiful. I would highly recommend this venue as it is stunning, allows you to be creative and the staff are extremely helpful. Thank you and all the best!

The venue is beautiful
We got married here a couple of weeks ago and had an amazing day. The venue is beautiful and the team were so organised with all aspects of the day, which was so appreciated due to the frequent changes of plans due to Covid! I knew they weren't going to forget anything which made everything so much easier for us. The accommodation on site is also lovely and it was a real treat to stay in the Piggery on our wedding night.

The team are so kind and helped through every step
My husband and I got married here a few weeks ago. We felt so supported from the first time we visited to look at wedding venues. The team are so kind and helped through every step of the way including navigating ongoing changes due to Covid which would have been a lot harder had it not been from the care and help from Hendall. The day went so smoothly and really enjoyed every minute of the day and staying over at the accommodation. Looking forward to returning for our reception next year. Thank you so much

Thank you so much ...
We can’t put into words how grateful we are for all your help in the build up to and on our amazing wedding day. It was honestly the most happy and fantastic day we have ever had and we so appreciate everything you did to help it run smoothly. So many of our guests were in love with your gorgeous buildings and grounds and the photos we have been sent by everyone are just beautiful.

My Fabulous Wedding
Hendall Manor Barns is just a beautiful wedding venue! It was one of our first places we visited and instantly we fell in love with it and knew it was the one for us. We cannot thank Nicola, Peter & Harriet enough for all of their help and support leading up to and including the big day, it couldn’t have gone better! We have received many wonderful comments from our guests on how beautiful Hendall is and that the wedding itself is up there with the best which is fantastic to hear! The accommodation itself is just perfect! I stayed here the night before with my bridesmaids and the night of the wedding and it really added to the whole experience! We can’t quite believe it has been 5 months since our wedding already but if we could do it all over again we absolutely would!
