The Manor Barn is a Hampshire barn wedding venue that stands in the grounds of a beautiful Grade II* Georgian mansion. Lying on the edge of a pretty, country village, it’s just 20 minutes from Portsmouth/Southampton, one hour from London and five minutes from the A3. This beautiful wedding venue is about to be enhanced to offer even more amazing facilities.
The Manor Barn is one of the few wedding venues in Hampshire with a church next door. St. Mary’s dates back to the 12th century and stands overlooking Buriton pond - right next to the venue. This romantic setting is perfect if you’re looking for a church ceremony.
Until the end of July 2014, civil ceremonies will take place in the east end of the barn. Then, from August 2014, there will be a new setting and venue for civil ceremonies. Monks Walk, a country house next door to the barn will be a stunning new ceremony room. With unspoilt views over the South Downs Way, it will offer a romantic backdrop. Its south facing lawn is also perfect for your drinks reception.
The Manor Barn itself is very spacious, with imposing ironwork chandeliers and a stone floor. Original wooden beams, exposed rafters and rustic stone walls give it a wonderfully rustic feel. Tall windows on one side of the barn look out onto St Mary’s church next door. On the other side, there are fabulous views of The Manor House and its courtyard. It is quite simply a stunning location for a wedding.
Available from summer 2014 onwards, the Lodge will be a private suite for the wedding couple. It stands beside the barn so you won’t have to travel very far at the end of the night. It will also make the perfect base for getting ready on the morning of the wedding.
