"Having been one half of the first couple to get married in the Ashridge Great Barn I know it intimately. We renovated the barn for our wedding and it went so well that we saw an opportunity to share it with other people. Located on our family farm in Devon, the Barn is run by a small devoted team who all live locally - if not on the farm itself! I never envisioned working in weddings but it's a privilege to be involved in such a special occasion and really rewarding to create such beautiful and unique events. I feel lucky to get to know each couple we work with and love the challenges of delivering the wedding of their dreams. "
