Once you have booked Upwaltham Barns as your wedding venue, you can look forward to attending one of our ‘Wedding Experience Evenings.’ This is a unique opportunity for you and your partner to experience Upwaltham Barns as a guest and to get a good idea of how it will feel on your special day.
Invitations are sent out by email directly from Nibbles2Nosh our exclusive caterers several months before your wedding day. They will have created a menu that broadly covers samples from a combination of all our catering options, from which you can choose a trio of starters, the main course, then followed by a trio of desserts. This gives you the opportunity to taste a variety of dishes from our menus and see the presentation of our food which ultimately makes it much easier to decide what you’d like to serve your guests at your wedding breakfast.
Many of our service team will also be looking after you on your wedding day so that you will have some familiar faces. Many couples appreciate this, and we hope it helps to make your wedding day a little more relaxing.
The Stable Bar provide wine samples from their current selection to compliment the meal and are on hand to discuss all things drinks related with you.
We start the evening off with a Prosecco and canapés reception in the East Barn where we will be on hand to answer any questions. Your experienced wedding co-ordinator will be here too, so this is an ideal opportunity to pick their brains while enjoying a glass of bubbly! It is a great way to choose the canapes for your reception as these are such a visual appetizer it makes it much easier than just selecting from a long list of options.
You will see the barns and courtyard at night and the magical ambience created by candlelight and pretty fairy lights. The barns have a great atmosphere with wedding suppliers dressing both barns, a florist creating beautiful table décor, live music enabling you to hear the acoustics, all captured by a professional photographer. The evening has a relaxed pace, so you will have the opportunity to wander around, sit in the Moroccan snug, spend time in Jasmine Cottage and get a good sense of Upwaltham Barns at night. Combined with lively conversation and laughter it all makes for a fun and memorable ‘wedding experience’.
We have always had such positive feedback from these evenings with many couples saying the experience was so valuable to their planning process.
