With its secluded setting just outside the village of Ardington, in Oxfordshire, Lains Barn is a charming and quintessential Old English barn wedding venue.

Located in idyllic countryside with fine views across the Vale of White Horse, in the heart of rural Oxfordshire, and close to the ancient market town of Wantage, Lains Barn is a beautiful setting for any wedding.

Warm and welcoming, Lains Barn is a wonderful wedding venue, a real rustic retreat; the historic barn dates back to 1750, a classic central lawn with picturesque views and a team of talented in-house caterers.

Authentic and utterly romantic, Lains Barn is a magnificent timber-framed barn lovingly restored to superb standards. The high vaulted ceilings, timber beams, exposed brickwork and traditional wooden doors with wrought-iron handles create an enchanting space, while the polished stone and wooden floors and full height glass windows add a contemporary touch.

Civil ceremonies can take place within the barn with guests seated on vintage-style chairs enjoying the beauty of the barn with its off-white silk drapes hanging from the ceiling, lanterns and fairy lights, fabulous floral displays and minstrel gallery, which forms a fantastic focal point above the bride and groom. Couples can also exchange vows outdoors.

The drinks reception typically takes place on the lawn during the summer months, moving into the barn when the weather is not great. The central lawn area enjoys excellent views of the surrounding countryside, and is filled with pretty potted plants and vibrant hanging baskets, creating a calm and laid back ambiance.

The wedding breakfast is served in the barn, allowing couples the opportunity to dress the space to suit their individual style. Quaint, intimate and with a boutique feel, brides and grooms as well as their guests are sure to be impressed by this stunning space.

Completing the experience at Lains Barn is their superb team of in-house caterers, providing personalised menus full of local produce. With seasonal ingredients sourced from suppliers in the area, wedding breakfasts at Lains Barn are delicious and memorable.
