The Barn is ideally situated for your wedding or celebration.
We have now completed the restoration of our beautiful Welsh barn and it is now a magical wedding venue. We have installed underfloor heating, insulation, plentiful electric points, a wonderful hard floor and glassed in the windows but have retained the charm and romance of the original building – the slit windows, high beams and exposed brickwork. It is now the perfect blank canvas wedding venue.
Using our extensive and varied supplier list you can decorate, furnish, light and characterise the barn to your own tastes, and your own budget. So if you’re after that certain flower from your first date to hang from the beams, or the bunting in your favourite colours or maybe a light up bar and the mirror dance floor to really get the party started- then not only will we let you do it, we’ll show you where to find it. But if you’d rather source your own suppliers then that’s fine with us too.
Many traditional venues only offer a handful of structured packages, hidden with obligatory choices, ‘must haves’ and hidden extras which can leave couples feeling constrained, hemmed in and with no flexibility, control or power to create the day they really desire. Weddings at Tall John’s House give you complete control to take over the barn from Friday to Sunday and transform it into the space YOU want for your wedding day.
The icing on the (wedding) cake is that on top of the use of our beautiful barn, you have access to two enchanting, protective courtyards on either side of the barn, with views out across the Black Mountains. You also have the use of the exquisite grounds at Tall Johns House, including the stunning walled garden, for pre-dinner drinks and wedding photographs. You’re welcome to attach your own marquee to the barn if you’re after that extra bit of space.
Included in the rental are 2 nights in our 4 bed/4 bath Honeysuckle cottage which adjoins the barn. You can use this space as you wish- as a crèche or area for baby sitters or a self-catering space for family perhaps. We also include the wedding night for the happy couple in our sensational one bed cottage, The Coachmans and supply a romantic wedding breakfast basket.
We don’t charge corkage so you can mix up your favourite cocktails or source your own champagne. We allow fireworks and confetti by prior arrangement and can even help with camping.
Decorate it your way
