Are you a licensed venue?

Yes absolutely, we are a licensed wedding venue, so you can get married right here, either outside on our south facing front terrace under our Oak Framed Linhay, or inside our stunning high ceiling Cotswold Stone Barn (do not panic – we always have plans in place to move indoors if the British Weather lets us down!) We recommend you liaise with Gloucestershire Registry Office (01452 425060 – option 3) who’ll officiate your wedding.

We have our heart set on a traditional ceremony in our local church, can we get married elsewhere?

Absolutely, if you are looking for a traditional Church wedding service, there are several different options in the surrounding area – we can help you with this! We’d be more than happy to welcome all your guests after the ceremony and ensure everything is in place for your reception – that’s not a problem at all.

Drink

Do you allow external caterers?

I am afraid not, we are delighted to work with three amazing catering companies, carefully handpicked by The Kingscote Barn Team. Clever Chefs, Relish and Strawberry Field are all very flexible and would be more than happy to discuss your requirements and menu ideas.

Can we bring our own alcohol?

You are welcome to provide your own drinks for the drinks reception and wedding breakfast or whole day if you wish to. We don’t charge corkage but the caterers may charge a service fee per person to cover glasses and their staffing costs for serving the drinks. A cash bar can also be available for guests to purchase their own drinks throughout the day.

What time does your bar open and close?

The Bar is usually open straight after your ceremony until 12.30am, if you were looking for this to be open prior to your ceremony our caterers can discuss your individual requirements.
