Your Wedding at Clock Barn
Design your unique and unforgettable wedding day at Clock Barn; a traditional, family-run wedding venue in Hampshire, full of history, character and charm. With exclusive use of the barn, garden and grounds, you’ll be able to plan a wedding day that’s all about the two of you.
Let us take you on a journey through the spaces available to you when you choose to have your wedding at Clock Barn.
Your Wedding Day
Surrounded by beautiful open countryside, the long private driveway offers you and your guests the opportunity to relax and truly immerse yourselves in our incredible rural landscape as you approach our characterful venue.
As you arrive to get ready for your big day, we’ll escort you and your bridal party to our brand new preparation room, The Stables, which is included as part of our accommodation package. This elegant secluded space has been designed with you in mind.
Enjoy a spacious hair and makeup station, a huge mirror and lots of well-placed lights, relaxing sofas and high hooks for dresses. This is where your wedding day starts. Enjoy teas and coffees on us, or pop a bottle (or two!) and let the celebrations begin.
“The colour palette in The Stables is purposely neutral, along with leathers and linens, so that it doesn’t clash with your colour scheme for the day so bridesmaids’ dresses and flowers aren’t lost in the decoration. We’ve let all the natural details in the space sing.”
Emily Tyers, Interior Designer
Say ‘I do’ in one of three beautiful rooms in our traditional barn; each offering the perfect setting for your big day. With its traditional rustic beams, an abundance of natural light and charming atmosphere, the barn is guaranteed to set the mood for your special day.
For a civil ceremony licensed for up to 50 guests, The Stable Room is ideal for more intimate ceremonies. It offers a cosy feel and has gorgeous details which can be dressed to your liking, such as the huge fireplace.
For guest numbers of 50-85, choose the dancefloor area. With its solid wooden floors, this beautiful space is flooded with lots of natural light but remains cosy, offering everything you could want from a barn. The dance floor area is also a great choice for winter weddings as it becomes home to the Clock Barn Christmas tree.
The largest space of the three, the Main Barn, can accommodate up to 160 guests and delivers a real wow-factor. An advantage of this room is that it allows for three different layouts. Its high ceilings offer a sense of grandeur while details like the bunting and fairy lights add an extra special touch.
You can style each of these three spaces as you wish, but we’d recommend considering the architecture and time of year to really maximise your decor budget. In the Stable Room, it’s well worth investing in flowers and LED candles to decorate the fireplace which will become the main focal point of the room. Whereas in the dancefloor area, you might not have to invest as much in foliage in December as the Clock Barn Christmas tree takes centre stage.
It’s worth considering ceremony backdrops in each room and investing more budget in this area, as this is the decorative element that will feature in all of your photographs and be the most ‘looked at’ part of your wedding ceremony. We love to line an aisle with LED candlelight which is a simple way to add romance and intimacy to a wedding ceremony of any size, and in any season.
If you’re looking to make your civil ceremony stand out, why not do it with colour! Our traditional barn rooms are so beautifully rustic and muted, which means that they can take almost any colour scheme. Take a look at some of the wedding trends we are predicting for 2023 / 2024 for ideas on how to personalise your wedding ceremony with colours and more.
If you’d prefer a religious ceremony, All Hallows in Whitchurch, and St Mary’s Church in Tufton are ideal choices if you’re looking for a church wedding close by. Alternatively, please get in touch for our support in locating a suitable option.
Whatever the season, Clock Barn has an ideal celebration space. The cosy barn is a great choice for winter drinks receptions with its grand fireplace and welcoming atmosphere, which you can enjoy with a glass of mulled wine in hand. For spring and summer weddings, you might like to head outside and enjoy cocktails or a bottle of beer in the garden. There’s also a paddock adjoining the garden, which is ideal for some fun garden games or golden hour photos with the sun setting over you. Why not also enjoy your musical entertainment during the drinks reception outside on the lawn.
When the two of you get a few moments alone, take advantage of Clock Barn’s natural beauty as you wander the grounds to discover the best settings for your wedding photos. You’ll have no shortage of opportunities! To help you out, take a look at this list of must-have wedding photos at Clock Barn.
Wedding breakfast and evening
Prepare to enter the Main Barn as a newly married couple! Your space will have been transformed with your chosen decorations, and will be filled with your loving guests waiting to welcome you.
Exceptional food will be served by our expert on-site catering team, while friends and family laugh and reminisce. Your wedding breakfast is only the start of your celebrations; you’ll also be able to wow guests with an evening reception to impress.
Give your evening guests the warmest of welcomes with a glass of prosecco on arrival (please speak to our team for more information on food and drink upgrades). Then kick start the evening by cutting the cake which can be then served alongside your evening food so your guests can then refuel.
Take to the dance floor for your first dance; whether you’re opting for a traditional slow dance, a faster paced choreographed dance or even a private first dance, which is set to increase in popularity over the coming years.
Spend the rest of your evening embracing all of your hard work and really letting your hair down. You did it!
However you choose to create your unique wedding day, we can guarantee at Clock Barn you’ll be left with incredible memories that last a lifetime.
The Main Barn
The Main Barn is a beautiful historic space that delivers wow factor and is available to transform as you wish to suit your chosen wedding theme. The fairy lights and bunting that adorn the barn mean the space is already perfect for a wedding, should you wish to leave it as it is.
Exceptional food will be served by our expert on-site catering team, while friends and family laugh and reminisce. Your wedding breakfast is only the start of your celebrations; you’ll also be able to wow guests with an evening reception to impress as you reveal the dance floor, showcase your entertainment, and have a giggle in your photo booth all while rocking out to your favourite songs.
Older or younger guests to look after too? Don’t worry we’ve got that covered! The barn also offers space for younger or older members of your party to take some time out too. Grandparents can relax with a coffee in the cosy Stable Room and busy parents can take some time out here too with their children.

We will never forget the day, which I suppose is the norm but all the little extras did not go unnoticed and made the day as near to what we could ever have dreamed of with the restrictions in place.
