We’d like to thank you for bringing our dream wedding to life.

It was perfect from day one of booking your beautiful barn & bridal room with you, you made the whole process enjoyable, even in the short three months of planning!

Nothing was too much trouble, you went above & beyond for us. The barn was incredible, my photographer captured the most dreamy photos, thanks to your stunning fairy lights & picturesque grounds. I’d recommend Cherry & Stockbridge Farm to ANYONE! Our guests were blown away, they couldn’t compliment the barn enough! A day we will never forget.

"Thank you so much for helping to make our day so special. Your help before and after our wedding was invaluable. Our guests all agreed that the barn was an amazing venue and even if we'd have won the lottery, we'd still have wanted to have our wedding here - it was perfect for us! The photos all looked stunning, both inside and outside of the barn and the fact that there was a separate bar and dance floor really worked well for people who just wanted a quiet drink or chat".

"Probably one of the most stunning wedding venues in the south west! This is an absolutely stunning barn! The pictures don’t do it justice! It really does need to be seen in real life for you to truly appreciate its true beauty especially at night when the barn is lit up! All the guests were amazed by the barn and the up-lighters really help set the mood for a truly great atmosphere! The barn lent itself beautifully as the backdrop and our photos looked amazing! Cherry the owner is always on hand to offer as much or as little help as you require and we simply can’t recommend this venue enough!"
