Open Day at the Barn

The Barn at Avington has recently been shortlisted for ‘Best New Venue’ by The UK Wedding Awards. Those who know ‘The Barn’ are not surprised. Since its launch in early 2018, the venue has built a reputation for being couple focused, perfect for those who love to be creative and eco-conscious. Set in stunning Hampshire countryside, couples can have their humanist ceremony by the river, canapes in the garden, roast marshmallows under the starry sky and glamp in the luxury hideaway.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Barn, where you can sample delicious food from some of our recommended caterers, enjoy seeing The Barn set up – showcasing local suppliers and view our 5* cottages.

Get in touch to book a 30-minute viewing with Event Manager, Beth, or just come and have a look! Our team will be able to assist you.

Open Day at Hotel Du Vin, Winchester – created by The Hampshire Wedding Club

Hotel du Vin Winchester provides the perfect backdrop for weddings and civil partnerships as you glide elegantly from the ceremony to the celebration and beyond – all orchestrated flawlessly by your own personal wedding planner. Whatever style your dream wedding may be, we’ll ensure the food and drink complement your wedding perfectly, from a five-course wedding breakfast, or a casual and informal buffet, to a completely bespoke dining menu and wine list specifically created for the occasion by our resident Chef and Sommelier. The choice is yours, but whatever you decide, come the big day, we’ll work diligently behind the scenes to make sure everything runs like clockwork.

There is something chic and welcoming about HDV Winchester.  The grande dame of the original capital city,  within earshot of the peels of the landmark cathedral she exudes Queen Anne-style architectural perfection.  The building dating back to 1715, and was lovingly reinvented as a luxurious but informal place to work, rest and play. A stone’s throw away, you have wonderful architecture, historic museums, cobbled streets lined with independent shops and boutiques, theatres, literary events and arts festivals.  A perfect city chic wedding venue, and hosts of our Cafe Sessions.

Simply email us to book a viewing with Event Manager or Manager, or just come and have a look! We will be delighted to help you.

We wanted our wedding to have some element of connection to a part of our lives. We also wanted a venue which would be unusual and memorable for our guests. That’s when Boon started thinking about the possibility of having it at Winchester College, where he spent many happy years at school.
