A dream wedding venue! From getting goosebumps on our first initial visit to walking down the aisle in the stunning garden with the twinkling lights above you, to dancing the night away in the beautiful barn, we wish we could relive our special day every day! The team, especially Laura were incredible, every little detail added to our day and they couldn’t be more thoughtful, helpful and welcoming to ourselves and our guests! Amazing day, exceptional venue and priceless memories made!

The Tythe Barn team were perfectionists in giving us the wedding of our dreams. The team are there when you need them in the months leading up to it and on the day, but they also blend into the background making everything happen without you even noticing it on the day. The Tythe Barn runs like clockwork and they’re always looking at ways to improve and move with the times. We had the most amazing day and have pictures & memories to treasure forever. Thank you so much.
Lucy and Tom
We both wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you all did to make our special day so perfect! You guys have the most wonderful venue - coupled with the most professional team; it makes a perfect combination!!
Elena and Joe
We couldn’t imagine having our wedding anywhere else. From start to finish the service was unparalleled and no question was too big or small. Jackie was incredibly generous with the hard work she put in to making sure every part of our day was as we imagined. There aren’t enough words to thank the team for all the effort they put in to giving us the day of our dreams. It was everything and more than we could’ve imagined!
Billie and Jonny
Everybody complimented the venue and the food and just how beautiful it is, you have an extremely special place, we are so happy we chose The Tythe Barn.
Rachel and Stuart
We visited six different barn venues but the moment we arrived at The Tythe Barn we were won over. I remember walking back to the car after being shown around and giving each other a little look - this was the one for us!
Kim and David
We got married at the beginning of August and had the most magical day that exceeded our expectations. Everything ran perfectly, the setting was stunning (we had so many comments from our guests) and the food was incredible! This was honestly the most perfect venue and we had the most perfect day!
Beth and Matt
Will, Emma, Harry, Laura and the full team at Tythe worked tirelessly to make sure our day was more amazing than we could have ever imagined. The barn is such a beautiful venue with a magical atmosphere, and we are so glad we chose Tythe as our wedding venue. We had so many guests say how amazing the day was, how beautiful the barn was, and how hard all the staff worked on the day. Despite all the challenges faced throughout Covid, Tythe have been nothing short of supportive, encouraging and reassuring, and we are so grateful to them for their patience and dedication to helping us have the day we have always dreamt of. The barn was just how we wanted it to be, taking the stress out of the day so we could enjoy it to the fullest. We could not be any happier with how perfectly the day went, and just wish we could do it all over again! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

We could not recommend The Tythe Barn more as a wedding venue. Being a “2020 Pandemic” bride & groom, we feel we are able to shout this out even more! We were supported from start to finish in what was an incredibly challenging time for the wedding industry; not once were we made to feel that our wedding was not important. Emma and Will allowed us to postpone our date, not once, but twice - Although the numbers were reduced on our wedding day, we got the perfect day we had hoped for! Their communication on changing guidelines was incredible – I know many couples were not as lucky and we could not be more grateful for their hard work during such a difficult time. Everything was exceptional on our day, exceeding what we could have imagined! The barn, grounds, food, service, everything was amazing. We got lucky with the weather on our day, but even the rain wouldn’t have spoilt it. Our wedding manager, Laura, was fantastic! When the government guidelines changed in the 2 weeks before our date, she was quick to respond to emails and phone to catch-up in the lead up. On the day she was there to ensure everything ran smoothly and we didn’t have one worry (not even when to start walking down the aisle). The catering and bar staff were all warm, friendly and attentive – Great representatives of the venue! No one was without food or drinks through-out the day. When it came time to leave (sparkler exit highly recommended) we didn’t feel rushed by anyone – Bar manager, Joe, even helped take our bags to the taxi, allowing us to enjoy our last moments there. Thank you to everyone for giving us the most special day!

I don’t have enough words to say how amazing Tythe was, from start to finish the whole experience was just perfection. We visited on an open day which is when we first met Tori, who ended up being our wedding coordinator. She is wonderful. Tythe was the first and only venue we visited. As soon as we walked in we knew it was the venue for us. The barn is beautiful with the fairy lights and exposed brick. The farmhouse accommodation is UNREAL. Everyone who works at Tythe is so welcoming and friendly. Tori was perfect and I couldn’t have wished for a better wedding day coordinator. She went above and beyond to make our day perfect for us it felt like we had a friend with us, helping us on our day. The grounds of the Tythe are stunning and perfect for pictures. The options to have your ceremony inside and outside are both as beautiful as each other and difficult to decide between. Every single one of our friends have commented on how amazing the venue is, and 2 couples have even asked if we would mind if they got married there! Food with absolute taste is PERFECTION. Many comments on the food being the best food they’ve had at a wedding! If I could do it all again I’d go back to Tythe in a heartbeat, no question. Thank you Tythe, especially Tori, for giving us the wedding far beyond our wildest dreams.

A wonderful wedding Venue ! What can I say about Tythe Barn... Well this place is perfect. Our wedding planner Tori was just so lovely ...nothing was too much trouble for her. Her waiting staff , bar staff were exceptional. The food was outstanding . Jess looked after all our breakfasts in the beautiful farmhouse then also appeared at the wedding breakfast. I cannot fault the venue the service or the farmhouse. The barn looked like something from a fairy story. They have thought of everything the detail was outstanding. They made my Daughter and her husbands wedding unforgettable. All my friends and Family have been contacting me saying the same thing ! Keep up the good work Tori and Tythe. Thank you so much .

We had our wedding at The Tythe Barn, Launton last August and could not recommend it more. From the moment we viewed the venue we knew it was for us. Everything was just a little bit “extra” compared to any other place we visited. The Farmhouse was still being renovated but we had no doubt that it would be just as spectacular as the barn, so didn’t hesitate to book without seeing the finished product. In the lead up to the wedding our wedding co-ordinator Tori was always there when we needed her, covering every detail and answering any questions we had. We knew we were in safe hands with Tori and any worries or stresses I had were alleviated by her organised and calm approach. This made the wedding planning process so much easier and less stressful and for that I am so grateful. On the day Tori was always around but never in the way – it felt like I just had an extra friend helping out which was so lovely. She kept everything running smoothly and any small hiccups e.g. a music blip she was straight on it sorting it. The Farmhouse – where to begin. This was such a great part of our experience and really helped to make the wedding morning relaxing. It was so nice to get to spend extra time with our family and friends and the Farmhouse itself is absolutely stunning. From the bath tubs, to the grounds, to the hot tub, bridal prep area, champagne bar, stunning kitchen area, every little bit of it has been so carefully thought through and nothing missed. The catering was amazing (for both the wedding and the night before meal) – we now understand why you only use these caterers. We received SO many comments from our guests on how great the food was. It really was delicious. I could go on for a long time about how perfect this venue and the staff are!! But I will round up and just say that if you are looking at having your wedding here, please do not hesitate to book. I wish we could do it all over again and we hope to be able to come back and stay at the Farmhouse again one day. Thank you to everyone at Tythe for giving us the best day of our lives!
