Venue Testimonials

Thank you, Maidens Barn, for our incredible wedding day. From the minute we booked our wedding to the day itself, communication has been great, with no questions too big or too small. The venue is beautiful, and everyone loved the food, especially the cheesecake! Thank you again for everything!

PERFECT wedding venue, myself and my husband got married here, and I must say it was just perfect. It was the first venue we saw and the last we booked right away with not even thinking twice.

We had our wedding at Maidens Barn in June 2022. Alex, Sam, Mercedes and the whole team made the experience amazing. The team at Maidens are friendly and helpful and was always on hand to answer any questions. The venue is absolutely beautiful. So many of our guests were saying how lovely and intimate the day was — it could not have been any more perfect.
