Rob and I really cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for us this last year or so! We are so so happy that we chose to have our wedding at Ashridge; not just because the venue itself is stunning (which it is), but also because it felt like you went above and beyond for us. We were both in awe of how much you contributed to helping it run as smoothly as possible on the day.. basically, we're just beyond grateful for everything you did for us!!

When we first visited Ashridge Barn we knew it was the wedding venue for us. Tea and cake on arrival, with a combination of relaxed atmosphere, stunning grounds and gardens (which we got to see in every season!) and the beautiful barn full of Devon charm. Simple enough for your own stamp but special enough not to need too much dressing to show it off. A huge plus was the ability for our guests to camp which kept the wonderful weekend going the following morning. All of our guests questioned where we found this little gem. Finally, we can’t comment on the venue without mentioning Cat. When we first met she described her team as can do people, which isn’t strictly true, there are can do people, and then there is Cat! From advising on table hire, short listing suppliers, providing foliage and last minute printing of forgotten readings. We even chose our rings based on her recommendation. Cat has the amazing gift of being 100% on hand whilst also being totally invisible. The smooth running of the entire day was down to her hard work and commitment to make it perfect for us. And for this we couldn’t thank her enough and will be forever grateful.

If you are looking for a beautiful, rustic barn and gorgeous grounds with the freedom to do your day your way, Ashridge is the place for you. Aside from the stunning venue, Cat was amazing both in the lead-up to the day and the weekend itself; she was very helpful in suggesting suppliers but equally happy to listen to and support our ideas. We loved the fact that she was happy to have our dog there on the day and there were lots of gorgeous props for us to choose from to help with the decoration. Nothing was too much trouble and we can't thank her enough for making our wedding day truly the best day out of lives. Thank you!
