Bennetts Willow Barn is a fun and relaxed wedding venue on a working farm, oozing rustic charm at every turn. Their unique and spectacular yurt marquee was originally built for the owners’ wedding and their day was so much fun they wanted to share the venue with other couples too!
They now have a beautiful feature-filled garden and a rustic party barn which perfectly suits relaxed and informal weddings with enjoyment being key. Based on a working dairy farm, you’ll feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, with beautiful views and sunsets across our cow grazing fields.
The team here love weddings and your dedicated wedding coordinator will work with you throughout your wedding planning journey to help you create the wedding celebration that you as a couple have always dreamt of. The venue is easy going and only have a few rules, so let your imagination run wild!
Their wedding area includes private outside spaces for you and your guests to enjoy as you want – vintage garden games, a bouncy castle, or even a rodeo bull! Let the kids (and big kids) enjoy outdoor fairground games, whilst you sit on hay bales for a catch up with friends. Once dusk falls, enjoy the warmth of the fire pit, with marshmallows provided for toasting over the fire with fairy-lights all around you. They are dog friendly too, so make sure your four legged friends are on your guest list too!
They have a range of catering options, all of which are prepared in-house by their catering team, with hog roasts and pizza ovens being their most popular options. Bennetts Ice Cream served from their vintage tricycle is of course a popular dessert option, along with their delicious homemade cakes and desserts. You can also bring in a favourite outside caterer if you would prefer as they do allow external suppliers to come and prepare your wedding feast.
The wedding celebration packages can include overnight and weekend glamping accommodation at their adjoining glamping site, Worcester Glamping. Let your guests make a real event of your wedding, and offer them a night or two away in the comfortable yet quirky yurts and bell tents, next door to Bennetts Willow Barn.
We certainly are. The yurt marquee gardens are great for providing entertainment and a place for children to run around. We are also a dog friendly venue, allowing well behaved dogs inside and outside on leads. The glamping site next door is also dog and child friendly.
Absolutely! Our yurt marquee, barn and garden ooze charm and personality by themselves, with bunting, fairy lights, log walls and rustic charm everywhere you look. So much so that you really don't need to splurge on other decor to give the venue a feeling of fun and personality. Whilst some of our couples do of course work with florists and venue stylists to create an amazing impression on a larger budget, we have had dozens of DIY couples who have made the venue look fantastic with old gin bottles and flowers from their garden.
Yes and we love when people do this! We have a farm cafe on site providing fantastic breakfasts, whether in the cafe itself, as a group booking in the barn, or breakfast in bed delivered up to the glamping site itself. So why not encourage your guests to stay and make a real weekend of the celebration.
We are within easy reach of junction 7 of the M5, and a £10 taxi ride from Worcester city centre. Although we are on a farm, we are really easy to get to for those driving or travelling by public transport.
Whilst we are sure you will love our hog roast, pizzas, burgers and more, we understand that some couples have their heart set on a particular street food van, a cultural cuisine, or family connection serving food at their wedding. So we are happy to allow this.
