The Vibe

Husband & wife team Matt and Kay Hamilton-Crook launched The Barn at Alswick in 2017 with the wish to provide a really personal approach to hosting weddings.

“So many venues become a conveyor-belt of events, where weddings become less personal, less distinctive somehow. We saw an opportunity to offer something different, a far more individual experience, where we don’t have to abide a set format and strict rules’

The Barn at Alswick hold a limited number of weddings each year, enabling them to offer a truly exclusive experience for all their couples, who can enjoy being fully centre stage.

We love getting to know the couples we work with, understanding their personalities and bringing their visions to fruition. We feel very honoured to be part of their ‘best day ever!’

In keeping with offering an exceptional experience, The Barn also has access to the huge stunning private gardens of Alswick Hall, with endless hidden gems it gives couples the opportunity to make their wedding photography unique and special to their day.

The Barn prides itself on offering a simple pricing structure to allow couples to maintain control over the all-important wedding budget. With only two mandatory elements required from the Barn (venue hire and drinks packages) everything else is the couple’s choice.

“We know weddings are expensive and keeping on budget whilst still achieving your dream day can be tough, so we want to ensure that our couples know their true venue costs upfront”

With a small dedicated team of Event Planners, The Barn at Alswick walk their couples through the planning process and ensuring their day runs seamlessly allowing them to simply focus on enjoying their day.
