Our comprehensive venue hire package includes pretty much everything you need for a wedding or event. Weekend hire is usually for 2 nights Fri-Sun. Midweek is 2 nights Mon-Wed or Tue-Thu. Day hire includes accommodation for the couple only and access the evening before to dress the venue and the morning after to remove decorations and clear up. Guests may book the remaining accommodation or tent pitches separately, if so desired. You may check available weekend dates here (midweek dates by enquiry only) or feel free to submit an enquiry with details of your group glamping gathering, wedding or event.

Damage Deposit

The damage deposit is £1,000 (not subject to VAT) payable one week before your event. It is returnable within one week of your event assuming there is no damage.

Confetti

Only water soluble biodegradable contetti may be used. No paper, foil or flower petals permitted.

Barn wedding decorations blush pink

Noise Policy

You can play loud music or have a DJ/band in the event barn but you cannot blast music at concert levels. It is not necessary. One of the reasons guests choose Barnutopia is because of its location in the stunning and peaceful Shropshire countryside. That is also the reason many choose to live in the area. Please be mindful of excessive noise at all times.

Vendors & Suppliers

We have added a list of vendors and suppliers for your convenience. Inclusion does not mean endorsement. Please let us know if you have any recommendations.

Pictures and Images

We take lots of pictures of the site, events and guests. We may use these images for marketing and promotion purposes. Of course, we won’t post on social media until you have posted your own images (or when you tell us it’s okay to do so). We’re also happy to share our images with you; however, we are not professional photographers and we cannot guarantee the quality or pics of a particular moment.

Professional Photographers

We strongly recommend that you hire a professional photographer if a picture record of your event is very important. We would appreciate permission (from you and your photographer) to use at least a few images for the purpose of information and promotion. For example, on our website and social media. We will of course attribute the image correctly to the photographer.

Decorations and Fire Safety

You may decorate the barns and site being mindful of fire and safety. Candles and naked flames are NOT ALLOWED indoors under any circumstances. You may use the fake LED candles with flickering lights. These are very effective and look like the real thing in pics. We are happy to make exceptions for indoor caterers BY ARRANGEMENT. Chinese lanterns that float away and burn are NOT permitted.
