I’m Emma Deeley, previously a professional dancer and Personal Trainer in London who swapped ridiculously high stilettos and the King’s Road for life on the farm, wellies and a family, when I married Will – and moved to a small village in Oxfordshire. Together we own and run Tythe – a wedding and event venue set at the heart of the family farm. Founded in 1998, when we transformed the first of the lambing barns, the Tythe estate has grown significantly and now offers a wonderful collection of beautifully restored barns, an impressive 17th Century Farmhouse, manicured gardens and mature grounds.

New at Tythe for 2023 a beautiful midweek wedding package!
We could not recommend The Tythe Barn more as a wedding venue. Being a “2020 Pandemic” bride & groom, we feel we are able to shout this out even more! We were supported from start to finish in what was an incredibly challenging time for the wedding industry; not once were we made to feel that our wedding was not important. Emma and Will allowed us to postpone our date, not once, but twice - Although the numbers were reduced on our wedding day, we got the perfect day we had hoped for! Their communication on changing guidelines was incredible – I know many couples were not as lucky and we could not be more grateful for their hard work during such a difficult time.
Everything was exceptional on our day, exceeding what we could have imagined! The barn, grounds, food, service, everything was amazing. We got lucky with the weather on our day, but even the rain wouldn’t have spoilt it. Our wedding manager, Laura, was fantastic! When the government guidelines changed in the 2 weeks before our date, she was quick to respond to emails and phone to catch-up in the lead up. On the day she was there to ensure everything ran smoothly and we didn’t have one worry (not even when to start walking down the aisle).
The catering and bar staff were all warm, friendly and attentive – Great representatives of the venue! No one was without food or drinks through-out the day. When it came time to leave (sparkler exit highly recommended) we didn’t feel rushed by anyone – Bar manager, Joe, even helped take our bags to the taxi, allowing us to enjoy our last moments there.
Thank you to everyone for giving us the most special day!

The full team at Tythe worked tirelessly to make sure our day was more amazing than we could have ever imagined. The barn is such a beautiful venue with a magical atmosphere, and we are so glad we chose Tythe as our wedding venue. We had so many guests say how amazing the day was, how beautiful the barn was, and how hard all the staff worked on the day. Despite all the challenges faced throughout Covid, Tythe have been nothing short of supportive, encouraging and reassuring, and we are so grateful to them for their patience and dedication to helping us have the day we have always dreamt of. The barn was just how we wanted it to be, taking the stress out of the day so we could enjoy it to the fullest. We could not be any happier with how perfectly the day went, and just wish we could do it all over again! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Emma and Kyle
The perfect wedding venue. The barn itself deserves 5 stars, but the staff are what make this place truly magical. We had the best time and we felt supported and taken care of through every part of our big day. The staff are ninja like in how quickly and efficiently they move things around and setup between the meals, indoor and out. Can't recommend this venue enough! You won't be disappointed!!
A stunning venue with beautiful grounds. A complimentary mix of classic barn style with modern decor. The staff are wonderful and truly contributed to our special day. Another big plus was the delicious food... a genuine knockout! Thank you Tythe Barn team for bringing our dream wedding to life and giving us and our guests memories which will last forever.
Kirsty and Will
Wow! What a classy venue and what an A team. We loved having our special day here and wish we could do it all over again. We planned the wedding from abroad and the team were so helpful, super responsive and bent over backwards to make our day what it was. All our guests commented on how beautiful it was, especially so at Christmas with the decorations. I’d recommend this venue and team to anyone! And I’d urge you to book the Nook and Shepherd’s Hut too; the Nook looks beautiful in the photos and the Hut is so cosy and cute – the perfect end to your wedding day.
Natalie & Jamie
Thank you soooo much for the most incredible wedding day! We wouldn't have changed a thing! We had the very best day and are constantly reminiscing various elements of it!
Becky & Olly
My wife and I were made to feel so comfortable and relaxed. We knew everything was in the safe hands of the staff. Cannot thank Jackie and the team enough for making our day the best it could possibly have been.
