On the day your guests may bring gifts and cards. We are pleased to offer the use of a white table top “Post Box” free of charge for your guests to post their cards into on arrival.  This along with any gifts can be locked into the Venue overnight though we recommend removing these to your room at the end of the evening.

Please be aware that your personal items and gifts are not covered on our insurance policy, therefore we recommend you arrange your own insurance to protect against loss or damage to any possessions, gifts or monies whilst at Selden Barns.

Yes, we have several very good local taxi companies. However, with Selden Barns being a rural location it is necessary to book taxis well in advance or risk a very long wait or be disappointed on the day.

You may choose to arrange a minibus service for the end of the evening if a number of people are staying in hotels close by.

We try to be flexible here at Selden Barn, but we do ask that you use one of our recommended suppliers for your wedding catering, as its one of the most important parts of the day & we like to assure we use caterers that offer both excellent service as well as excellent food. You will understand that it is our reputation as a venue that is at stake.

Due to our licence, all alcohol and drinks consumed on the premises must be supplied by our bar but we offer pre-reception drinks and table wines at reduced rates to our usual bar prices as well as Bar staff to serve the pre-reception drinks and toast drinks as well as chilling, uncorking and laying out of table wines.

You are welcome to use other suppliers for decorations, entertainment, photo booth, etc and we do have a number of very good suppliers in our wedding contacts page who know our premises and business very well.

Please be aware though that if you arrange your own entertainment, such as a DJ, Band or String Quartet etc. we have a noise limiter that they must be made aware of and we will require a copy of their Public Liability Insurance, along with proof that all electrical equipment has been Portable Appliance Tested (PAT). This should be supplied at least 2 months prior to the wedding. Unfortunately, anyone who fails to provide this will be unable to play at Selden Barns as it can invalidate our insurance.

The evening comes to an end at midnight. Due to compliance with the licensing requirements, live music finishes at 11.30 pm with a DJ or recorded music able to play until 11.45 pm

We do have an Easel that can be located at the entrance of the venue for you to display your table plan. It is able to hold a large board or picture frame. Please ask for maximum size if you are arranging a plan that is professionally made.

If we are assisting with setup, a working table plan is required 2 weeks prior to the wedding for us to arrange the right number of tables but the final table plan to display and name place cards in table order can be supplied on the day.

Yes, chair covers and/or sashes are permitted, and they can make a beautiful finish to our Venue.

Whoever you use needs to put the chair covers on for you, and arrange their collection after the day.

Due to our licence, all alcohol consumed on the premises must be supplied by our bar. We do, however, offer concessionary rates (just above cost price) for pre-reception drinks, table wines and toast drinks. Within this price we include our experienced Bar staff to serve pre-reception and toast drinks as well as chilling and laying out of table wines.

We cannot guarantee the weather, but we can be sure you will find many beautiful photo opportunities around the extensive walled gardens and inside spaces of Selden Barns, be it rain or shine.

Guests may leave cars overnight but all vehicles must be removed from Selden Barns premises by 10 am the following morning, so as not to impede other events taking place.

Unfortunately, Selden Lane is not suitable for double-decker buses as there are overhanging trees and large coaches and extended limousines are not able to turn around as Selden Lane is a dead end single track road. Limousines can also ground on the uneven road surface.
