In the whirlwind of wedding planning, one crucial aspect often gets overlooked – the getting ready space. This sanctuary where you’ll spend those precious pre-ceremony hours is more than just a room; it sets the tone for your entire day. Envision a serene oasis where you can revel in the excitement with your closest companions, a space that exudes luxury and tranquillity. With careful consideration, this haven can become an integral part of your cherished memories, captured in timeless photographs that you’ll treasure forever.

Spacious Sanctuaries

On your wedding day, the beautifully refurbished Tack Barn, a haven of luxury and tranquillity is exclusively yours for the day. Nestled in a serene and picturesque setting, the Tack Barn is a stunning preparation room that sets the stage for a vibrant and memorable walk to your ceremony. Indulge in the luxury of four large mirrored hair and makeup stations, thoughtfully designed to cater to your every need.

A room with an abundance of natural light. Large windows that not only create a warm, inviting ambiance but also provide the perfect illumination for your suppliers to work their magic. Moreover, natural light is a photographer’s best friend, allowing them to create stunning, ethereal images without the need for harsh artificial lighting. As you bask in the gentle sunbeams, your photographer can effortlessly capture candid moments filled with genuine emotion and beauty.

In the spacious dressing room, you can slip into your chosen attire with ease. As you meticulously curate every aspect of your wedding day look, from the perfect gown to a stylised suit, having a full-length mirror in your getting ready space is essential. This simple addition allows you to appreciate the culmination of your efforts, ensuring that every detail is flawless before you make your grand entrance.

Thoughtful Amenities

While the aesthetic appeal of the Tack Barn is undoubtedly important, we haven’t overlooked the practical elements that can elevate your experience. Ensuring that the space is equipped with a well-stocked kitchenette, complete with a refrigerator to keep refreshments chilled and a kettle for those much-needed caffeine boosts.

Furthermore, the availability of a private bathroom, allows you and your wedding party to freshen up and make any last-minute touch-ups before the ceremony. These thoughtful amenities not only contribute to your comfort but also help alleviate any potential stress or inconvenience on your special day.

Embracing Privacy

For many couples, maintaining tradition and avoiding seeing each other before the ceremony is a cherished sentiment. If this resonates with you, consider separate getting ready spaces for you and your partner, including a second preparation room. This not only preserves the element of surprise but also provides each of you with a dedicated retreat to prepare for your momentous union.

Within the heart of our venue lies a hidden gem, the newly refurbished Cottage Room. Designed with your convenience and safety in mind, this private and intimate space offers the perfect sanctuary for you and your wedding party to get ready together while maintaining a safe distance from your “better-half-to-be”.

Recently restored to perfection, the Cottage Room effortlessly combines luxurious finishes with rustic charm, preserving its original features, including the beloved bread oven. Step into this enchanting space and discover an oasis of comfort and style. Take a moment to unwind on the elegant Chesterfield sofa and armchairs, savouring the anticipation of the day.

Your getting ready space is not merely a stunning backdrop for some of the most emotionally charged and intimate moments of your wedding day, it is also a functional space. Boasting an exquisite en suite shower room complete with double sinks and a WC, allowing you to freshen up with ease. And a well-equipped kitchenette awaits, complete with a kettle for all the caffeine lovers and a fridge to keep your champagne and beverages chilled.

The Importance of Mirrors

And for those final touch-ups, the Cottage Room proudly features our venue’s largest full-length mirror, providing ample space for the entire wedding party to admire their stunning attire together. Mirrors provide a unique opportunity for your photographer to capture priceless moments of anticipation and joy as you admire your reflection. These candid shots often become cherished keepsakes, preserving the raw emotions and excitement of the day.

Whether you choose the stunning Tack Barn or newly refurbished Cottage Room, both spaces provide the ideal backdrop for your wedding day preparations. We have guaranteed that each space not only provides ample natural light but also offers a variety of picturesque vignettes, such as cosy seating areas, elegant vanities, or charming architectural details. These visual elements will elevate your photographs, transforming them into timeless works of art that capture the essence of your love story. And the combination of luxury, tranquillity, and thoughtful amenities ensures that your getting ready experience is unforgettable, setting the tone for a truly magical day.
