Stratton Court Barn - the Oxfordshire Barn Wedding Venue


A wonderful venue that let's you relax and simply enjoy your day. Here's how weddings at Stratton Court Barn work!

Wedding Preparation Room

Cathy has created a calm and relaxed space to enjoy while the anticipation builds.

You'll find a make-up counter with Simple Human mirrors, bathroom stocked with Noble Isle products, comfortable armchairs, hooks set high to ensure wrinkle-free suits or dresses and, of course, a full-length mirror to admire the full effect once dressed!

The venue has a ceremony license for 90 guests. You can have a traditional straight walk down the aisle, as pictured here, or we can mix things up if you prefer! Have a look at real couple Ashleigh & Adam's ceremony set-up, as featured on Rock My Wedding, here.

Outside ceremonies: take place in the Courtyard or in our Wedding Woodland

With guests seated in a lovely half moon shape, everyone has the best seat in the house. Framed by the barn doors, the registrar will lead you through your ceremony.

We're licensed by Oxfordshire District Register Service. All ceremonies need to be booked with their registrars. They can be reached on the helpdesk number: 0345 241 2489.

From 2023, our wedding woodland will also be licensed for civil ceremonies. Please see here for more details.

Drinks Receptions

Take place in the bar & lounge

Or on the front lawn if we're lucky enough with the weather!

Everything where you need it: your drinks, your guests and a light airy space to enjoy it in. But, if the  English weather is kind enough, the front lawn and courtyard is amazing for photos and drinks.

There are numerous photo opportunities, not least the rose garden, woodlands and of course the lake.

While you're having drinks and photos, we'll be busy transforming the Main Barn from ceremony to wedding breakfast.

The barn seats 80 guests comfortably - but can fit 90 if you're happy to forego the traditional long top table and sit on a round table.

At Stratton Court Barn we let you choose from a list of six approved caterers  to suit your particular requirements and budget.

Evening Receptions

Take place in the bar & lounge

Your entertainment (band or DJ) will set up while you're enjoying your meal and speeches. We can host up to 150 guests for an informal evening reception.

The stocked and staffed bar is open from an hour before your ceremony until 11.30pm.

The bar offers a good selection of beers, ales, spirits, soft drinks, an extensive selection of gins, cocktails and a comprehensive wine list.

Cash, card - including contactless - welcome.


From 1st May 2022, Granary Cottage - a two bedroom cottage - will be available at the venue on the night of the wedding. It is undergoing extensive renovations during winter/spring and will feature two luxurious bedrooms with double beds, a wet room with Noble Isle products, a cosy sitting room with wood burning stove and a fully fitted kitchen.

Check-in will be from 3pm, and check-out at 11am the following morning, giving you time for a lovely morning stroll down to the lake or woods to reminisce about the day before.

The cost of the cottage will be £380 for the night, and will include linen, towels, bathroom products, tea & coffee and of course our signature gorgeous countryside views.

For guests attending your wedding, there are plenty of nearby accommodation that can be found here: Accommodation
