Brand New Wedding Venue - The Courtyard Barns

The Courtyard Barns is a brand new, rustic, stone barn wedding venue based in a beautiful little village just north of Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire. A family run venue on a working farm, Bill and Emma make you feel like you are being welcomed into their home and as part of the family. They offer exclusive use, and will be doing a limited number of weddings each year so you definitely don't want to miss out when it comes to snapping up your date.

The Barn

This barn is comprised of two sides. The Threshing Barn & The Granary.

The Threshing Barn is on the right hand side as you look from the courtyard. With a double height ceiling, this is the perfect ceremony location. This space seats up to 100 people, on chivari chairs provided by the venue. It feels like a beautiful intimate space and the aisle isn't super long for those who get a little nervous. During your drinks reception this

space is transformed into your evening reception, with ample room for a DJ or a band to set up.

The Granary is a gorgeous little light trap! With its brick floors and beams it makes the perfect setting for your wedding breakfast. You can set this space using round tables or long trestle tables, both of which are provided by the venue meaning you get to choose which layout you prefer.

The Courtyard

From the barn through two incredible huge doors you are welcomed onto the courtyard, complete with flower beds and little nooks. This is perfect for your arrival drinks, photographs and garden games. This space is also home to the Long Hovel which is a separate barn for the caterers to use.

The Church

The Courtyard Barns is super lucky to be situated right next to the village church, St Michael and All Angels Church; Wartnaby. You can get married in the church but if you do not have a link with the church or come from the parish you may have to attend a few church services in the six months prior to your wedding. The land around the church is owned by the venue and the church so can be used as a beautiful back drop for your photos if you wish.

The Courtyard Barns at Night


At the moment you are only able to hold ceremonies on site lead by a celebrant or humanist as they don't hold a civil ceremony license. To legally marry you would need to speak with your local parish about a registry office service, as celebrant lead weddings are not currently legally binding ceremonies in the UK.

Supplier Details

The team will be working with preferred catering company's but everyone else is up to you as they allow you to select your own dream team of other suppliers.


There are local hotels just 10 minutes away by taxi in the village of Melton Mowbray. But if you wanted to have your nearest and dearest stay with you on site there is a field for camping available for your guests on Saturday night (limited number of spaces).

Final words

This venue will be huge. If your looking for a barn venue around Leicestershire get booked in to go see it now and snap up your date before it's too late. Photos really do not do this space justice, you will be blown away by its beauty.
