Wedding reception 6th October 2017

By Fi and Marcus, on 10 Oct 2017

There are insufficient superlatives to describe the wonderful time we had at Lains Barn for our daughter’s wedding reception. It is the prettiest of venues supported before, during and indeed afterwards by Nigel and Clare’s cheerful and efficient team. The food was absolutely delicious. We have had a deluge of thanks commenting on it as well as brilliance of the venue for ‘a blast’ of a party! It was absolutely the best of all my daughter’s weddings. Thanks to you all!

Perfect experience!

Lains Barn provided us with an exceptional venue at which to have our wedding, both the ceremony and the reception. The staff there were so accommodating during the viewings, they went above and beyond to cater to the many ideas we had to personalise our wedding. Communication was great, and they were always quick to respond. On the day, all staff were not only very professional, but very warm and welcoming to all our guests. They did an amazing job to ensure the day ran very smoothly and according to plan. The few surprise hiccups that did arise were dealt with so well, meaning no one was left unhappy! Everything was made to feel personal and friendly which was exactly the feel we wanted. The venue itself was extremely popular with our guests, we received so many comments on how beautiful it was. There’s excellent space both inside and out, with places for people to find their own little corner, but never too far away that they get lost or become isolated from the party. To us the fact that Lains Barn is in a remote location was a massive plus, as it made it all feel very intimate and enclosed, and we had the space to do whatever we wanted without restrictions from other buildings or venues. Transport to and from was extremely easy to sort out too. All in all the whole experience with Lains was perfect, their priority was always to make sure we were happy and they couldn’t have done a better job. We both enjoyed our day immensely and the venue and staff were a big part of that!

Rachel Just wanted to thank you personally for a fantastic day on Saturday. You and ALL the team certainly did us proud and made my daughters wedding day a resounding success. We always knew that the surroundings of Lains Barn would be lovely but the whole experience was made perfect by the performance of all the staff throughout the day.  Everything ran like clockwork without us ever feeling we were being rushed; the waiting staff and bar staff were very efficient, friendly and always happy to help. Despite the fact that there were people moving around all the time the food, which was excellent, was served quickly and efficiently to all the right people and given the number of “specials ” we had that was no mean feat!!

Personal thanks

Lains Barn came up trumps!

By Moira

The venue, the weather, the organisation, food, etc etc were all perfect! So many of the guests have commented that it was the best wedding and venue they have been to. We had about 126 guests for the meal which was the Moroccan tagine etc. Again, the feedback (pun not intended) was how everyone enjoyed the food and how much there was! There was no shortage and most guests had seconds. The canapés served during the reception before the meal, were superb. We ordered six per person and that was a very adequate starter for the guests and good timing (3 til about 4.15) to give guests food and drink while photos etc were being taken. The Moroccan menu had so much food that no starter (other than canapés earlier) was required. The dessert was delicious. Thank you to everyone at Lains Barn. It was a memorable day.

Rachel, Clare, Nigel and the Lains Barn team, just a quick email to everyone in Lains Barn to say thank you so much for Friday, everyone was commenting on how nice the barn was and how good the food was – in fact several said it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding and a lot of people said how much they loved the chicken pie. Our wedding was made so easy, the venue was beautiful, the food was excellent and the bar and service was exemplary and everyone had a fantastic time.

Personal thanks
