Our Story

 

“Ours is a love story…….we fell in love, he proposed, I said yes! That was simple, but finding the right wedding venue was the difficult part… the idea for Upton Barn & Walled Garden was born! When deciding to share our family home and farm as a wedding venue, we wanted it to be exclusive, unique, yet still relaxed. We offer an exclusive use, blank canvas venue where couples can choose their own suppliers in order to create a day that is completely unique to them. We don’t believe in hidden extras like corkage and our pricing is completely transparent, making it really easy for couples to stay within their budget. We are committed to every couple and work closely with them to provide the support they need to create the wedding they will always remember. We have made some amazing friends on this journey and continue to do so! I truly believe that Upton is not just a venue…….. it’s a feeling!”
