Venue Hire

Venue-only Barn Hire

When it comes to weddings, we know that there is no 'one size to fit all' package. Whilst we have developed some great wedding packages, you are also able to hire our venue without any additional extras and simply pay the venue fee.


‘So many people told us it is the best wedding they’ve ever been to and that it was the most beautiful venue they’ve ever seen!’

– Kirsty & Paul


Whether you are looking for a venue for your wedding reception, civil ceremony or both, Smeetham Hall Barn is sure to be the perfect place for hosting your magical day.



What’s Included in Wedding Venue-Only Hire?

The venue fee will secure the beautiful 16th Century Barn for your wedding ceremony and reception, or just the reception if you plan to marry elsewhere. This fee will include VAT, heating costs and all necessary chairs and tables.


Making Your Big Day Yours

By booking our wedding venue hire only, you can tailor all elements of your wedding to you as a couple. You are free to choose one caterer from our list and your own choice of musicians, DJ, photographer, videographer and decorations. If you need any advice Bridget or Sophie will be on hand to help. Take a look at our gallery or Instagram profile to see how some of our previous happy couples have chosen to decorate their venue.


‘Your venue is truly stunning and we had the most amazing day. Everything was perfect, the staff were very attentive and nothing was a problem’.

– Shelley & Dan
