Your dog’s part of the family – make them part of your wedding day!

Dog Friendly Weddings

Lower Barns is all about love and family – so if your pet pooch is a big part of yours, there’s no reason they can’t be involved! Our dog friendly weddings are particularly popular, and we ensure that they’re able to be involved as much as you want them to be! Have them walk down the tunnel of love, perhaps even carry the rings (if you trust them!) – the choice is yours and they can be a big part of your day!

Your Wedding day

Unique and full of love

Stage your humanist ceremony in any of the fabulous spaces, from an outdoor wedding in The Wed Shed, or anywhere in the gardens, to the intimacy of a small winter wedding in The Shack in front of a warming fire. With Flowers, a bit of bubbly, and Wedding Cake to follow there will also be a treat for your wagging tailed guest! You will be able to enjoy the sounds of the countryside around you before having some photos in the garden or a drive down to the seaside for those extra shots of this amazing coastline. (There are plenty of dog-friendly beaches around us).

Your Accommodation

Wedding and dog friendly!

You have a choice of two dog friendly, uniquely designed suites which redefine the words snug and welcoming from The Hideaway, with bath en suite and open plan living, and the Hayloft Hangout, with disabled access, tiled floor and wet room. Lower Barns is set within in two acres of grounds which includes the paddock for your four legged friend to have a run.
