Stunning with or without additional decorations, you are welcome to use this space as a blank canvas adding your personal signature to the event.

Ceremony capacity - 150 guests

Your guests will be called for dinner after reception drinks at the stunningly renovated Bridge Barn, before the bride and groom make their entrance through the grand oak doors.

  • Debbie Smith - 25/03/2018

    Stuart and I were married 10th March this year. Hayley and the team were absolutely amazing. The venue was perfect for us, food and drink perfect and our day was beautiful. From the word go everyone made sure the day ran smoothly, it was sad that the day went so quickly. We would happily recommend this venue as it is truly special.Thank you is sometimes not enough to say but we would have to say a massive thank you to Hayley and to all for making our first day as a married couple perfect. It set us up so well for our honeymoon adventure that started the next day.

  • Liam Aaron - 10/04/2018

    This is a fantastic venue. My sister got married here on 8th April 2018 and the service was outstanding. Never been to a wedding which ran so smoothly like this one did. Charlotte who works in Events at Bassmead Manor was excellent. She should be very proud! From the minute we arrived to the minute we departed I can truly say, there was no faults. If you’re looking to have your wedding here. I 100% recommend!

    Beautiful venue. Friendly staff who are more than happy to go out of their way to make your day special.

  • Beth Young - 19/07/2018

    Absolutely stunning venue! As a photographer I see many weddings at different venues and Bassmead Manor is one of the best I've seen. The whole day went smoothly and the attention to detail is superb. There was so much on offer. The bridal suite, the barn for the ceremony, the beautiful conversion for the reception. It simply has it all. Looking forward to returning very soon to photograph another wedding.

  • Leslie Long - 26/08/2018

    An absolutely wonderful experience from start to finish with very professional management of our wedding & friendly helpful staff. The behind the scenes staff worked unobtrusively and feverishly to allow our wedding to run as smooth as silk. The venue was kept meticulously clean and beautiful.
    A special mention for Jennifer Lavender who was very helpful and professional throughout catering for our every needs. The food was beautiful and very tasty as all the guests commented how wonderful it was. We found the enclosed venue made people socialise more allowing for a more pleasurable experience all around. 5 out of 5 from us...well done Bassmead Manor Barns.

  • Sophie Davenport-Rouse - 20/10/2018

    We got married here on Sunday 14th October and it was truly the best day of our lives. Everything ran like clockwork and the venue was decorated to perfection. The team were amazing making sure the whole day ran smoothly. All of our guests commented on how delicious the food was and how beautiful the barns were. We had Rob from strobe disco do our music and announcements for the whole day and he was fab! Bassmead is a stunning venue and despite the rain we managed to get some beautiful photos outside and inside the rickety barn. We cannot recommend this wedding venue enough and would like to thank all the staff that helped make our day perfect.

  • Kirsty Lêann Armstrong - 22/11/2018

    We had our wedding at Bassmead and it was everything we could have ever dreamt of! Hayley was so helpful from the beginning and our day ran so smoothly, it was perfect. She was an absolute star at helping us organise and plan final details and was there throughout our day checking that we were okay. We cannot thank her and the rest of the team at Bassmead enough. It is a beautiful venue and an equally beautiful team running it. Much love Mr & Mrs Armstrong

  • Emma Woodford - 30/12/2018

    Beautiful venue and lovely staff. From the moment I came to look at this venue the rickety barn took my breath away. I knew I wanted to get married here. It’s so beautiful with the bridge and the moat around. Thank you to the lovely Jenny for all your help and making our day so beautiful.

  • Mr & Mrs Peckham

    We got married at Bassmead on the 25th of November 2017, the whole day ran so smoothly thanks to the amazing staff, nothing was to much trouble for them, especially Charlotte who organised everything for us, your enthusiasm and excitement really made our day. Our 2 year old boy loved staying in “Charlotte's house” (the cottage) he’s been walking around singing “Batman Charlotte Superman” since he met her.

    Our guests loved the place, and the food, it really is an amazing venue full of amazing people. The only problem was the day was over too quick.

    Thank you to everyone involved.

  • Nicola and James

    We were looking for a barn style venue that could hold both the ceremony and reception. With James’ profession and my love of interior design and the countryside, we couldn’t have found a better venue. The exposed beams and brickwork in the Rickety Barn finished with fairy lights are stunning and the whole look and feel of the place made us instantly fall in love with it. We liked the warm, welcoming feel we received when we looked around and felt it had everything we could possibly need in the most incredible setting. The surrounding area provides the perfect backdrop for photographs and the outdoor area is ideal for warmer weddings where guests can sit outside. We loved that everything is in one place and easy to get from one area to the other, as well as the accommodation for family as well as the bride and groom.

  • Claire and Jonathan

    We fell in love with Bassmead on our first viewing (it was the first and only venue we ever saw). It ticked all the boxes of allowing us to have our wedding ceremony and reception in one place. There were gorgeous surroundings, the venue was set up to be easily accessible by all (including wheelchair users) and the staff were super friendly and helpful. The barns were rustic, but beautifully finished and everywhere within the venue felt light, airy and romantic. It basically gave us goosebumps as soon as we walked in.

  • Aimee and Richard

    We chose Bassmead Manor Barns from the first impressions of the whole place we fell in love with it. It was everything we were looking for. The most important thing to us was to find somewhere the civil ceremony would be held - it was special in its own way and not just a room like other places. When we saw the Rickety Barn our breath was taken away, we knew it was the place for us and the fact it was private to us and our guests, we could have as many guests as we wanted as we only wanted a small personal wedding. We felt so comfortable and that it was made it for us.
    Everyone was so lovely and made us feel that nothing was too much, that we could make it personal to us and have what we wanted – this was the icing on the cake for us as for Richard to be able drive a truck to the wedding and have photos with it meant so much to him and made it more our day.
