Cripps is popular for weddings, and wedding receptions. Please have a look at the photo gallery and the letters from customers.
Civil Wedding Licence or Church Wedding
We have a civil wedding licence so you can get married in the barn in the afternoon and follow on straight into your reception.
There are lots of churches local to Cripps, so if you choose to get married in a church, then you can still use Cripps Barn as your venue for your reception, wedding breakfast and evening party.
We have a beautiful oak ceremony shelter in the glade next to Cripps, which is also licensed for civil ceremonies. An additional £1.20 per guest is applicable for the hire of the outside chairs.
An informal and relaxed location
A wedding party in a smart hotel can be impressive, but some people are looking for something more informal, more romantic, more rural, where children can run around, where you can have a bonfire, where your guests can camp instead of driving home, where it doesn’t matter if a drink is spilled and where the party can move outside in good weather. This is what we offer at Cripps Barn.
Make the most of your day
Most venues will close around midnight, just when everyone is really enjoying the party. At Cripps your hire period runs until 1.00 a.m., when the music stops and the bar closes.

“I’m drifting around in a bubble of nostalgia… Everything was perfect, I wouldn’t change one single thing – the barn is of course the perfect venue, the food was delicious, the table looked so beautiful and I never imagined I could but I felt like a fairy princess for one day! Several of our guests said it was the most memorable and intimate wedding they had been to. Thank you thank you thank you. It’s a tricky job you do, keeping people happy on the most important day of their lives, you all do it extremely well and miraculously managed to make us feel like we were the first and last people to get married at Cripps. That’s the brilliant bit.”
