Due to the number of weddings we have at Selden Barns, this is only possible if we do not have a wedding on the day before yours. We can, however, let you know 2 weeks in advance whether the rooms are available to you.

We provide a list of local accommodation with helpful information such as telephone numbers, distance from Selden Barns, and the number of rooms they have.

The Dressing Suite will be available for the Bridal Party from 11.30 am.

Your guests can then begin to arrive from 1p m. Their rooms are guaranteed to be ready to check in by 3 pm, but in reality, the last room is usually finished cleaning by around 1 pm, giving time for people to change in their room prior to the wedding ceremony at Selden Barns, recommended at 2 pm. (Remember if it is a church wedding, guests will go straight to the church and not check in until they arrive after the ceremony) Check out by 10 am the following morning.

Yes, we only hire the rooms to your wedding guests. Most of our Brides and Grooms take all of the rooms and then allocate and charge their guests accordingly so that they have control over who stays and joins them for breakfast the following morning. If you do not take all of the rooms then they will be available to hire by any of your guests.

The Venue will be exclusively yours from 11 am on the morning of your wedding through to 9 am the following morning when the next day’s wedding party will start setting up.

For the civil service at Selden Barns, 2 pm is the ideal time for the ceremony with pre-reception starting after at 2:45 pm.

For a church service, which is about 1 hour in length, we advise going straight to the church, and scheduling a ceremony time that will enable you to arrive at Selden Barns at 2:45 which is ideal for pre-reception.

Experience shows that 2 pm is the best civil ceremony time as this will give enough time in the morning for you to get ready with your Bridesmaids and Mum (and a glass or two of Prosecco!). Getting ready always takes longer than you think as the photographer will want to photograph every item before you put it on!

If you are having a traditional wedding with wedding breakfast and evening party with entertainment, with pre-reception drinks and canapes at 2:45 pm, there will be adequate time for the larger group photographs to get done before sitting for the Wedding Breakfast.

We have found with ceremonies held earlier in the day that it can be a very long day for guests to be kept entertained.

If, however, all your guests are attending day and evening, a later ceremony time is acceptable being 3 pm to 4 pm. Please bear in mind that during winter months, with the days getting darker earlier, a later ceremony time will compromise the time for external photography in our wonderful grounds.

Our Wedding Co-Ordinator will be with you from the early planning stage right through to the key events of your special day. On the day, our Operations Manager and event team, who are experienced in running weddings, will guide you professionally and seamlessly through your event.

Our events team are available to answer any queries. They are usually in the office Monday to Friday, 9 am to 5 pm. You can also speak with Rachel, our Wedding Co-ordinator. She is usually available in the office Monday, Thursday and Friday, 9 am to 5 pm. If Rachel is unavailable, please leave a message and she will return your call as soon as she can. Her email address is info@s3h97s4qg.gb-02.live-paas.net

Our prices are fixed at the time of booking. Once you pay us a deposit your price will not change unless extras are added at your request.

The only exception to this is our Bar Price List, which is not fixed at the time of booking.

We are a family-friendly venue, but we ask that parents take full responsibility for their children at all times. They should not be left unattended at any time. If a number of children are attending, you may wish to organise a creche facility or some entertainment. This could be a magician or children’s entertainer. We have plenty of space for inflatables and bouncy castles, but they will need to be supervised.

Our Ceremony Room is licensed to hold Civil Marriage Services and holds up to 100 people. Our Reception Venue can hold from 50 to 230 people comfortably seated.
