Reviews

  • Hannah Poulton

    Dove Barn was the perfect venue for us- beautiful, peaceful and completely relaxed. It was great that we had the venue for the whole weekend to decorate just how we wanted. We loved the flexibility, hard work and helpfulness of both Jayson and the team at Dove for allowing us to create our own special day, in our own style. Thank you! We had the best time ever and wish we could do it all over again!

    We loved Dove Barn - the Venue is absolutely amazing! It gives you a blank canvas to create a personalised wedding. Jayson was helpful in the run up to the wedding, helping to organise props and giving us tips on local suppliers. Both Jayson and Adam were great on the day, helping everything run smoothly. We would definitely recommend this beautiful venue!
