The Old Barn can comfortably accommodate up to 160 seated guests for a wedding ceremony. Constructed over 200 years ago, this beautiful rustic barn features magnificent exposed beams that could be decorated with either fabric or foliage to complement your wedding theme.

The Old Barn can then be used after the ceremony as a relaxed area for guests, set up with a photo booth or even a roulette table for entertainment.

Civil ceremony capacity - 160 guests

The New Barn

Aldwick Estate's unique New Barn also showcases gorgeous exposed timber beams, and seats up to 160 people with lovely views of the grounds through its large glass windows.

It also incorporates a cellar bar serving the vineyard's very own delicious wines for guests to enjoy during the evening reception.

    As a wedding photographer I am always so pleased when I get booked to photograph a wedding at Aldwick Court Farm & Vineyard. It is the perfect venue for couples that want a private countryside wedding. The photo opportunities have always been endless for myself and I have captured some of my best work here. Furthermore Aldwick Court Farm & Vineyards staff are so kind and attentive. They will certainly go the extra mile to help you throughout the day. Amazing venue, amazing staff.

    We had our wedding at you venue yesterday, the two of us and our guests had such an amazing day! Thank you to the whole team for making it our perfect day and making it run so smoothly just the way we wanted it.
    Special thanks to Rob and Alysha, you both did amazingly and kept us all calm, especially the mother of the bride, and you were both generally just lovely people to share our day with! Thank you so much, would highly recommend this as a wedding venue and will remember it for years to come! Thanks again!

  • Emma and Nick

    We fell in love with Aldwick when we were guests at another wedding there. We knew immediately this was where we wanted our wedding reception and we were not disappointed. The staff and Taste buds catering were amazing and couldn't have been more helpful. Ella and Emma were 'on it' from start to finish. Everything we asked for and wanted they were able to accommodate and it was all the personal touches that meant the most. The grounds are stunning so if you get lucky and have a sunny day the photos look incredible. The food was 10/10- very generous portions :) Cannot recommend Aldwick enough. Beautiful venue, great food, great wine, close to Bristol. Perfect!

  • Katie and James

    We just wanted to say thank you so much for making our wedding day perfect. we loved every second of it, the whole day was so well organised and ran so smoothly. All our guests commented on how beautiful the setting and venue were and how professional the staff were. Prior to the wedding and on the day nothing was too much trouble for you and you were all so lovely and helpful. We are so glad we chose Aldwick. Thank you for making our special day one we will never forget.

  • Steph and Tom

    Tom and I cannot thank you enough for making our day truly perfect! From the moment we met you both (Rob & Emma) you put us at ease and we knew we were in safe hands. Your both so easy to talk to and we didn't feel once that anything we asked was impossible or inconvenient. We felt everything ran smoothly on the day & that was all down to you. We have had so many amazing compliments about the wedding, so many people have said its the best wedding venue they have ever been to. Our vegetarian and celiac guest's felt so spoilt getting their own canapes. The food was AMAZING! The best food I have had at a wedding before. All of your staff were so lovely and friendly. You really did make our day perfect!
