what is bredenbury court barns
A stunning, multi-award winning barn wedding venue in the midst of rolling countryside.
Found down a long sweeping field drive, with unruly sheep and views across three counties!
A beautiful blend of historic and new, with a carefully restored 1920’s Orangery and subtle hints to honour the estate’s history as a deer park in the early 1900’s. The oak framed, glazed walled Oak Barn provides wonders for the views, ensuring an unrivalled and contemporary setting for weddings, civil ceremonies and receptions.
Flooding with natural light, the 1920’s Orangery boasts Victorian windows and skylights, leading on to the veranda and rose garden overlooking the surrounding countryside. A light airy, yet historic setting to get married within (and is fully licenced for weddings and ceremonies).
An iron-framed gazebo positioned perfectly to have the views of three counties behind you, we are fully licensed for outdoor ceremonies should you wish to surround yourselves and your guests in nature as you say your “I Do’s”.
The Oak Barn is an oak post and framed barn with a Skyframe glazed viewing wall providing guests uninterrupted countryside views for your wedding breakfast and early celebrations. Oak Barns’ unique space gives plenty of freedom to lay out your guest tables with great variety and with straight or round top tables to suit.
– The Atrium welcomes you and your guests as you first arrive at Bredenbury Court Barns and is a combination of a vaulted barn with exposed timber beams, with our large rustic chandelier paying homage to the estate’s history as a deer park. As you move through the Atrium the rustic barn impression gives way to a contemporary Atrium Bar & Snug area with floor to ceiling glazing, where your guests get their first glimpses of the long ranging views.
– Night time transformation. Oak Barn completely transform at night, as the countryside views from the glass wall fade, our low-energy consumption lights are set to an array of warm, ambient colours to get the party started! The Oak Barn and Atrium create a really inclusive, atmospheric evening vibe with your band or DJ performing on their very own stage! Wow!
– The Larch Barn features the Bridal Booth and Stag Retreat, whilst also serving as the luxuriously appointed ‘loo barn’ throughout the day time reception and evening festivities.
– Being set in over 20 acres you can also enjoy a stroll out into the gardens of the estate, basking in the setting sun and the views over three counties all the way to the Malvern Hills!
