Celebrations at Bateman's Barn
Wow your wedding guests, just the way you want to.
At Bateman’s Barn, our collection of beautiful undercover and outdoor spaces, together with our truly flexible approach to your catering needs, makes it a first choice for discerning couples looking forward to the joy of sharing and really making their wedding celebrations their own.
From its barn and bright courtyard marquee to its breath-taking sunset vistas and optional atmospheric fire pit, every aspect of this delightfully rural and historic island site makes the atmosphere of your wedding celebrations simply more unique, amazing and great value for money.
What’s more, we now offer fully scalable receptions, 'now or later' receptions and evening parties and complete flexibility when it comes to catering, so you can make all your choices based on your own taste, style, theme - and of course budget and the situation (COVID-related or otherwise) at the time.
Celebrate every minute
That's most sincerely what we would like all our couples to do - and that's why our scalable approach to weddings is designed to be different, to give you the flexibility you need to make things happen when you need them to, when you want them to or when and how in COVID-time you can.
Our scalable weddings formula helps you plan your wedding and achieve the certainty that you will have time together with all your loved ones, family and friends, because there’s simply so much to celebrate and share.
At Bateman’s Barn South Elmham, no precious minute need go to waste.
After the ceremony, let you guests relax with a celebratory drink and maybe a canape or two on the terrace or lawns. Perhaps have some games set up for the little ones to enjoy in the grounds, whilst you explore the island and make the most of romantic ruins and natural vistas to create some stunning wedding photographs.
For the wedding breakfast or reception, settle down to your own excellent choice of food served in our courtyard marquee.
The level of formality of the catering, the flavour or the menu and the whole atmosphere is up to you – just like those must-have / might-have / it-might-be-fun-if-we-had speeches, of course.
As the celebrations roll on, your guests will welcome the freedom to relax a while in their own way on the comfy sofas in the adjacent lounge area, under the parasols on the terrace, in the Stables Bar or with a walk around the grounds.
So if you have more partying planned, you can concentrate on welcoming the additional guests as they arrive.
For the evening party, the medieval barn is just perfect for live bands, discos and dancing. And there are always still those quieter spots over in the marquee, lounge and terrace area where guests can have a natter or look after the little ones, but still feel part of things.
Catering for your evening guests couldn’t be easier, with plenty of options from light bites and buffets to barbecues and all sorts of moveable feasts.
And if you fancy a grand finale, fireworks over the fields are a popular choice at Bateman’s Barn South Elmham.
Or why not include our superbly atmospheric fire pit in your party plan, available just a short walk from the buildings down in the ancient grove?
