Our History

The Priory was created as a wedding venue in 1992. Since that time it has played host to around two thousand weddings and civil ceremonies. At the centrepiece of this historic setting is the barn built in 1541 by James Needham, Carpenter and Surveyor of Works to Henry VIII. Still retaining a regal sense of space it is hailed as possibly the finest timber barn in England.

The Priory is home to John and Ann Hope, who open its doors for couples looking to find that uniquely special place – where privacy, seamless service and a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere are of utmost importance. As one of the very first barn venues in the country, families continue to gather here from far and wide, trusting John and Ann’s meticulous attention to detail that has proven to be the hallmark of its success. No detail is too small to command their attention and this much-loved location is still highly recommended by couples who held their wedding here twenty years ago.
