Milling Barn Weddings
Set in the beautiful North Hertfordshire countryside, Milling Barn at Bluntswood Hall is an idyllic and exclusive wedding venue on a family run farm.
The Milling Barn is a beautiful 17th Century oak barn, and the adjoining Dairy Barn is a converted milking parlour, both of which are licenced to hold civil weddings and partnerships. Alternatively, couples can get married in their local Church and come to Milling Barn for their wedding reception. The Milling Barn and the Dairy Barn both have licensed bars, can seat up to 200 and 120 respectively, but can equally be tailored to suit much smaller parties, ultimately offering a truly flexible wedding venue solution. We have 2 outdoor wedding venues which are licenced for civil weddings and partnerships.
We have created a beautiful bridal dressing room with en-suite bathroom for the bride and / or bridesmaids to prepare and get changed in. This is available for your sole use throughout the day.
Milling Barn is exclusively yours as we do not take multiple wedding bookings for the same day, which gives you the freedom to be totally relaxed throughout your special day.
We can tailor the different venues to suit any number of guests from small intimate parties, up to 200 for a sit down meal.
Civil Marriages at Milling Barn
The Milling Barn and Dairy Barn, as well as the Garden and Blunts Wood are licenced for civil weddings, partnerships and naming ceremonies. The wedding service is carried out by the Registrar, who must be contacted and booked by you. Milling Barn is registered with the Bishop’s Stortford Registration Office – T: 0300 123 4045; E: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Milling Barn and Dairy Barn can seat up to 200 and 120 guests respectively, including the bride and groom.
If you are planning on getting married in your local parish church, you can then come to Milling Barn for your wedding reception. Alternatively, we can supply contact details of local churches for blessings or services.
Outdoor & Woodland Wedding Ceremonies
Milling Barn has two outdoor licenced wedding ceremony locations, Blunts Wood and The Garden. Find out more about our outdoor & woodland wedding ceremonies.
After the wedding ceremony, drinks can be served in the Dairy barn, or alternatively in the gardens. The enormous oak tree provides a fantastic backdrop for great photo opportunities. The meal is then served in The Milling Barn. Both wedding barns have dedicated bars, with music and dancing usually in The Milling Barn due to the large dance floor area. We have plenty of free parking for your guests, and cars can be left overnight.
A Selection from Recent Weddings
Our wedding was everything we wanted and more. You have been organised, flexible and most important available to speak to whoever we have needed you. During our meetings you were transparent with all of our choices and the costs that would go with these. You were able to help us adapt the choices available to meet our needs. You and your colleagues organisation and management of the day was spot on and the day flowed seamlessly despite the rain. The food/drink both at the wedding breakfast and the evening were fantastic and a lot of our guests commented on how tasty the burgers were :) Milling barn is truely a beautiful venue which I am so pleased we were able to use for our special day.

This was the first and ONLY venue that my now husband and I viewed at the beginning of the year, fell in love with it, and decided to go ahead and book. Working with the venue team was extremely easy from the outset, and we got everything we wished for in our wedding day, and more. The venue is incredible and beautiful even without any additional decorations, the chef's at the Chopping Block are great, and very accommodating of special requests, and all other staff were fantastic. The most amazing and memorable day in my life at Milling Barn.. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We attended our friends wedding recently at Milling Barn. The venue is gorgeous, the weather held out and we managed to use the garden and surrounding grounds for some great photos. The food was faultless and all the staff helpful, professional and cared about every aspect of the day.

Thank you for hosting our wedding this weekend. The venue is beautiful and the planning team was brilliant. All queries answered quickly and everyone loved the barn! Milling Barn was our first venue we looked at and we didn't even bother to look at any others. Thank you again for being a massive part of making our big day so wonderful.
