Cotswold Barn Wedding Venues

The Barns

The Barn at Upcote is tucked away in The Cotswolds, but is also ridiculously accessible! It is nestled in fields just far enough away from the main A40 between Oxford and Cheltenham.

This venue comprises of barns set in 3 sides of a square with a grand stairway down to them. This creates a cosy space for a drink reception and central hub.

Their ‘Hay Barn’ is where the bridal party can get ready and is also the Honeymoon suite. So only a few staggering steps at the end of the evening! You have the exclusive use of the Threshing Barn, Grain Store, Sheep Shed, and Cart Lodge so there is a fantastic flow for each stage of your wedding day, from ceremony, to drinks, the wedding breakfast and dancing, with a fully stocked bar and eager waiting staff.

The Happy Couple

Kim and Randall got married on a HOT HOT HOT August day, but boy was that sunset worth the heat. The bridesmaids looked stunning in dusky pink that matched their bouquets designed by Aqua Florist, who is a regular supplier at The Barn at Upcote and knows every inch of it. She also decorated the cake, table centres and the stunning pew ends in glass jars.

The lads looked very dapper in black tie. Tuxedos, pocket watches and shoes that shined.

I haven’t seen a more elegant couple! But would you believe Kim was wearing 5 inch stilettos? Randall really is THAT tall!! Honestly, Kim is about my height, an average-ish 5’5″!

Kind Words

“Thank you so much to the wonderful Orchard Catering team for doing such a fantastic job at our wedding. We were so impressed with the service from the first telephone call to the private tasting session at home, the service was warm and professional and the focus was completely about achieving exactly what we wanted. We love that Orchard is a family run company. I would like to make a special mention to Ellie for going above and beyond in the run-up to the day. No request was too great and you played such a huge role in the running of the day’s events. Thank you so much for all you have done to make our day one to remember.

A huge thank you to all the team at The Barn at Upcote for providing such a beautiful venue for a big day. We knew it was the venue for us and we had such a warm reception from the team who gave us our first viewing. It was the perfect day and the Venue will always hold a special place in our hearts and memories.”
