Your love for one another deserves nothing less.

Great Barn Ceremony

Our Great Barn is an oak framed triple height space at the heart of Retreat East. The magnificent brick fireplace is the heart and soul of the building. The room is perfect for wedding feasts and celebrations but can also be adapted for a large ceremony if you require one indoors rather than in the farmhouse garden. Adjacent to the Great Barn is the bar area and The Potting Shed where guests can mingle before and after the ceremony.


Farmhouse Garden Ceremony

Our beautiful Farmhouse Garden temple is licensed for weddings. You can arrange your guests on either side of our lavender walk amidst the fruit trees and pleached hornbeams of the intimate and romantic Farmhouse Garden. An English garden ceremony can be the most romantic of options, and because at Retreat East you have other indoor options, we can adapt on the day to suit the weather and reduce stress.
