We used our barn at Acorn Nursery in 2016 for our daughter's wedding. It was a beautiful day! The barn along with our potting shed coffee shop, surrounding gardens and onsite flower farm proved to be an ideal venue for a wedding.
We would love to see other people share their special day here and so from 2018 between May and September this will all be available for hire.
We are offering this as a DIY venue giving you the freedom to completely do it yourself or use the wedding professionals of your choice.
Acorn Nursery lies between the Oxfordshire villages of Stadhampton and Little Milton. It is four miles from the M40, nine miles from Oxford and 40 miles from London.
The wooden barn is 18m x 12m, the coffee shop which can be used as a bar or for catering is 5m x 10m and there is almost an acre of surrounding gardens.
You are able to choose whoever you would like to do your catering. We can also make recommendations.
We do not hold a Drinks Licence. You are able to buy your own drinks or you may wish to bring in an outside bar who will have a Drinks Licence. There is therefore no corkage charge.
The hire runs from 2 days before your wedding day until midday on the second day after the wedding day. So for a Saturday wedding, the hire period will be from 9am on the Thursday before until midday on the following Monday. This allows you time to set up at your leisure. You can decorate the barn and surrounding area as you wish as long as it is returned to its original condition by the Monday.
If the wedding venue proves popular and there is a demand for holding the wedding ceremony here, we will obtain a licence.
The barn can accommodate 150 seated guests.
The cost for the hire of the venue in 2018 is £2,000 and £3,000 for hire in 2019. A deposit of £500 is paid at the time of booking. Prices include VAT.
