The Wedding Barn is an open sided barn with an adjoining stone barn within a working farm. It provides an idyllic rural setting for weddings and parties of up to 100 people.
The farmyard is enclosed on three sides by stone barns, which adds to the rustic theme. A field behind the barns, with a backdrop of the downs and Carisbrooke Castle, can be brought alive for the ceremony, activities, music and camping.
The surrounding countryside is cleverly brought into the venue by dressing the barn with traditional wedding plants, wild flowers and greenery. Your colour scheme can be matched as far as possible with in-season wildflowers, from frothy white cow parsley, elder flowers, meadowsweet, campion, buttercups, speedwell and alkanet. You will be advised of in-season flowers. Bought flowers can be incorporated into the décor and table settings.
Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, our gardens, fields and pathways provide a perfect backdrop to capture your celebrations. The possibilities to make your day unique are endless, let your imagination run riot.
Oozing charm, this superb wedding venue on the Isle of Wight nestles in a gorgeous rustic setting, overlooked by Carisbrooke Castle. Our traditional barns and farmyard offer a romantic and magical place for your special day.
Every couple's journey is unique, personal and very special; it's a time to celebrate this wonderful time just the way you want it.
It is becoming ever more popular to create a bespoke service that reflects your personal beliefs and lifestyle with the freedom of choice; choice of location, choice of time and choice of words.
Although Plaish Farm is not licensed for the ceremony to be performed by a Registrar, you can, however, use a Wedding Celebrant.
Once the official legal requirements have been completed at the Registry Office, you and your Wedding Celebrant can create a unique and personal ceremony as traditional or adventurous as you wish, here at Plaish Farm.
