HENDALL MANOR BARNs
OOZING WITH CHARM
We’ve worked at this gorgeous location that dates back to the 17th century, for many years and really do love working here. The owners, Nicola and Peter have done an amazing restoration and really know how to run a venue, making it a completely hassle-free day for you!
The main stone barn itself is split over two levels, the top half has a slate floor that compliments the barn perfectly and the lower half features a traditional-oak floor, perfect for dancing!
Outside you have a gorgeous area to use with plenty of seating and a huge lawned area, perfect for post-ceremony drinks or photographs and when it comes to parking, Hendall have that covered too, literally, with a huge barn perfect for all your guests’ vehicles, you can even fit a coach in there!
Hendall is licensed to hold civil marriages inside the barn and it truly offers a romantic setting for your wedding ceremony. As with other venues, we have been asked from time to time to provide your choice of music during the ceremony using our discreet audio system.
THE WEDDING BREAKFAST
If you’re looking for music to be played during the wedding breakfast then we can help there too with our discreet audio system that doesn’t take away from the rustic charm of the barn. Alternatively, you may prefer to use Hendall’s own ceiling-based speakers which work perfectly fine!
In addition to the music, we can also take care of any announcements you need making as your official MC for the day and can even set up one of our popular smartphone wedding quizes for your friends and family to enjoy whilst they eat!
THE EVENING PARTY
Most wedding receptions we’ve DJ’d at have usually been in the lower-half of the barn with only a small handful taking place in the upper area. Whichever you choose, both are perfect for dancing!
If you are planning on having both a band and a DJ for your evening party, space is tight, but it’s not impossible but you may need to let the band know about the noise protection system installed at the venue. It’s quite forgiving and certainly not the worst we’ve worked with!
Depending on which end of the barn you choose to have your evening party in, you’re either going to be dancing on a traditional oak floor or dark slate, both are perfectly fine, or you could choose one of our gorgeous starlit dance floors instead!
We offer a number of different sizes depending on the total number of guests at your evening party and we would say that both a black or white starlit dance floor would look gorgeous in there!
Ever since we started working at Hendall Manor Barn, we all agreed that the barn would look superb with some additional mood or up-lighting. This is floor-based lighting that we can place around the barn creating a gorgeous, vibrant wash of light up the stone walls and into the roof area. It really does transform the barn! We can even colour-coordinate the lights to match your theme!
We offer two different packages based on having lights just around the area where the disco is, or the whole barn. Whichever you choose, the effect is truly amazing as you can see in the pictures!
