The barn features an exposed framework of oak beams and cathedral-style windows which look out over the gorgeous gardens with plenty of natural light streaming through. There is a minstrels' gallery above one end of the barn, where musicians, a choir or the photo/videographers can be positioned. After the ceremony, drinks and canapés can be enjoyed in the adjoining room, or in the Mediterranean Courtyard in fine weather.

The dining room at Rivervale Barn features oak beams with fairylights winding around them and contemporary spherical lighting globes above the top table. The natural wood and neutral colour scheme ensures that any wedding theme will easily be matched. Rivervale Barn is also ideal for receptions, with lots of different spaces and an adjoining courtyard. Individual areas are all interlinked and boast a licensed bar that accepts cash and cards.

The Spinney

If the Great British weather is on your side, you can take your wedding outside. The Spinney is an idyllic outdoor space conveniently near the barn, yet separate and intimate. Listen to the birds singing surrounded by the picturesque gardens and grounds, with the bank of the River Blackwater a central feature. The Spinney really is the most magical place, and ideal for wedding day photos.

Civil ceremony capacity - 150 guests


Whether you'd prefer a traditional three or four-course meal, an afternoon tea or dining al fresco, there will be something to meet your requirements at Rivervale Barn. With the vast amount of exterior space, choosing to have an outdoor barbecue might just be ideal. However, if the weather isn't so kind, or if you'd prefer something a bit more traditional, the lovely space inside the barn is perfect for a formal-style wedding breakfast. Get in touch with the expert on-site catering team to discuss what is best for you.


The nearby 'Cornstore Cottage' is perfect for a bride and groom to spend their first night as husband and wife together. Originally part of Yateley Water Mill estate, the suite is over 450 years old and makes for a fantastically romantic setting after the wedding!

With an open-plan bedroom, the cottage is homely and welcoming. The accommodation combines traditional rustic features with mod-cons, making it perfect for a luxury night's stay. Included in the price is a tantalising Continental Breakfast the next morning.
