I chose Clock Barn to be included in this event, as it is just a classically gorgeous venue! Everything about it screams cosy and rustic and I just love the peaceful vibe of this magnificent building and its surroundings.
Eva at Clock Barn has provided us with a Virtual Tour, so you can still see the Venue in all its glory, while staying safe at home. You can now see this just below!

Clock Barn - Traditional, Family-Run Wedding Venue
Enjoy an unforgettable wedding day here at Clock Barn, a traditional, family-run wedding venue in Hampshire, full of history and character. With exclusive use of the beautiful Barn, garden and grounds, you’ll be able to enjoy a wedding day that’s all about the two of you. Begin your Clock Barn experience by taking in the awe-inspiring landscape, as you’re chauffeured down the long private driveway. Upon arrival, you can take advantage of our new bridal preparation room, The Stables.
Here, in this lovingly converted and peaceful space, you can get ready for the celebrations in style. There are so many thoughtful details, including a spacious hair and makeup station, a huge mirror and lots of well-placed lights, plugs and high hooks for dresses. The Stables is the place where your wedding day starts.
Say ‘I do’ in one of the beautiful rooms in our traditional barn, 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 your civil ceremony, you’ll have three stunning spaces to choose from. The Stable Room is licensed for up to 50 guests and is ideal for more intimate ceremonies. It offers a cosy feel and has gorgeous details, including the huge fireplace. For guest numbers of 50 – 85, you might like to choose the dancefloor area. With its solid wooden floors, cosy, relaxed atmosphere and flooded with lots of natural light, it offers 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 offers a real wow-factor setting. 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.
Gather with friends and family in the garden or the barn to celebrate your marriage and enjoy your chosen canapés and drinks menu – expertly created by our on-site caterers.
Whatever the season, Clock Barn is ideal for celebrating in. 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 out in the garden. There’s also a paddock adjoining the garden, ideal for your musical entertainment or some fun garden games. When the two of you get a few moments alone, you can take advantage of Clock Barn’s natural beauty, as you discover the best settings for your wedding photos. You’ll have no shortage of opportunities! Afterwards, you’ll be welcomed into the Main Barn. You’ll have transformed the barn into your very own special place – which the two of you and your guests can enjoy into the evening.
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. Got 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. However you choose to create your unique wedding day, we can guarantee at Clock Barn it will be a success! As your evening party reaches its finale, we don’t want you to have to leave this beautiful Hampshire wedding venue, so we are delighted to be able to offer you the opportunity to book Tufton Warren Farmhouse and The Hayloft, our onsite accommodation, meaning that you’ll have the perfect place for you and your guests to unwind.
Our magnificent farmhouse is located right next door to Clock Barn and provides nine individually designed en-suite bedrooms for your guests and a stunning kitchen for everyone to come together for breakfast the next morning. As friends and family cosy down in the Farmhouse, you will be treated to a night of hidden luxury in the Hayloft. This exclusive and unique hideaway is a perfect place to spend your first night together as a married couple.
How many guests can attend our Wedding at Clock Barn?
The venue capacity during the day is 160 however we are unique in that the venue works just as well for small weddings of 50 guests as it does for those with larger numbers. It is also possible to invite additional guests in the evening when our capacity increases to 200.
What makes Clock Barn different to other Wedding Venues?
Clock Barn is an original 1800’s traditional Hampshire Barn, distinguished by a historic thatched clock at its entrance and set in the middle of rolling Hampshire farmland. The wedding business has grown over the years through love, commitment and a huge amount of hard work from the dedicated family team who still remain at the very heart of the business. Clock Barn is a hidden gem within the Hampshire countryside offering each couple complete exclusive hire of the Barn and the surrounding garden. Our traditional family values mean that no detail is ever too small to be overlooked and that each and every couple is treated as if they are our one and only booking.
What is your favourite part of what you do?
Seeing couples have the best day of their lives. I am yet to see a wedding that isn’t full of love, laughter and happiness!
Does Clock Barn have its own set of suppliers we have to use, or can we choose our own?
The only supplier you need to use is our Clock Barn caterer, who are based on site but apart from that you are more than welcome to choose any florist, photographer, band, DJ, etc. If you don’t have anyone in mind, then we have a recommended list that is found on our website, all of which are local and have been to Clock Barn on many occasions.
Are there any trends you'd really like to see more of in Weddings?
We see lots of different styles and trends here at Clock Barn, but the weddings that really stand out are where our couples create something that is unique and is very personal to them. We are very lucky in that Clock Barn provides the perfect backdrop for you to do almost anything and really put your own stamp on the day.
What made you want to become a part of Clock Barn's Wedding Team?
The whole team really believe in the ethos installed by the owners and want to ensure every couple have the most fantastic day. This has created a great work environment for everyone on-site and with our new additions to the Farmhouse package and with lots of more planned in the future, it is an exciting place to be!
Who are you in lockdown with and how are you staying sane/passing the time?
Lockdown is one of extremes for me, on the one hand we have been extremely busy helping couples whose wedding plans have been postponed, but on the other side I live on my own, so have been spending time away from the laptop enjoying this amazing weather transforming my garden.
With things the way they are at the moment, what's your postponement/cancellation policy?
We are following government advice and have currently postponed all weddings up until the end of June. After the next government announcement we will make further decisions relating to weddings later in the year, however if anyone is worried about their wedding they can call us anytime on 0330 002 0085.
What are your 3 Desert Island Items? - i.e. If you were stuck on a desert island and could only have 3 items, what would they be?
This is always a difficult one, but putting survival aside it would have to be a hammock, an endless supply of G&Ts and a subscription to a bridal magazine, so there is plenty to read and I could stay in touch with the world of weddings!
What's your favourite Wedding Theme/Style and why?
For me it’s all about flowers, Clock Barn creates the perfect natural canvas for floral displays and when the natural country garden is brought into the barn it not only looks fabulous, but the floral smell is out of this world.
This Wedding Fayre is raising money for Mind, the Mental Health Charity - Why do you personally feel like this is a great cause?
Everyone is affected by mental health at some point in their life and although awareness in general has increased over recent years, everything that is going on at the moment has highlighted just how important the support network that charities such as Mind provide, as so many more people are being affected.
