TESTIMONIALS

Best day ever! Cripps staff really pushed the boat out. The place looked amazing, the food was top notch and the service exceptional. They all went above and beyond, from Jodie, our manager for the day, to the cleaners the next day when I couldn’t find my phone. Thanks for making our day so special.

Cripps have 100% got the whole organising a wedding finely tuned! Making planning the wedding easy! The website saved hours of trawling the Internet many options for suppliers, recommended by Cripps was very comforting. The messaging system made everything clear & simple My messages were always answered quickly. We met to discuss the details we were excited you guys made us feel like our wedding was the only one. Your staff’s excitement & passion for what they do is extraordinary. Considering you do weddings most days that is a serious love for your job & a very happy team a credit to you. The theme for our wedding was woodland fairytale what better place to make this come to life than this beautiful venue. We got married inside the British summer didn’t play ball but it was perfect & certainly not in anyway a disappointment in fact you could not have topped it. The feeling I got when I walked into the barn will stay with me forever it looked incredible and was so full of love & magic my heart was ready to burst. The whole day was seamless not even noticing the staff making everything happen. Jodie looked after us throughout the day she was superb felt like an old friend there whenever we needed. Nothing too much trouble & again full of that Cripps barn magic. You guys undoubtedly know how to throw the best wedding & anybody considering this venue needs to listen to this. Everything was perfect everything. Our hearts are full of magical memories & each time we think back to our special day we are filled with that magical Cripps feeling. Thank you truly.

We had the most perfect day we could have wished for at Cripps Barn. Nothing was too much for the staff there. We can’t thank them enough for all their help leading up to the day and on the day. The venue location is just incredible and very picturesque.

We fell in love with Cripps Barn from the moment we saw it, and at no stage during the process did it disappoint! The venue itself is totally gorgeous, and all our guests commented on how stunning it was - it really was the perfect setting for our special day. The staff in the lead up to the wedding and on the day were brilliant, Jodie was so lovely and organised our day fantastically. The food was yummy, we had the meat platter - all our guests loved it. The desert was out of this world - we had the chocolate fondant - the only downside was that we were so full we couldn’t eat more than 1 portion. We would both recommend Cripps Barn to everyone and anyone! Thank you to everyone at Cripps who was involved. It was the most magical venue for our perfect day.

We had a sensational day with you, thank you so much. The venue was stunning of course, the food amazing (a vegetarian guest said it was the best vegetarian option they had ever had at a wedding, and even the vegan food was delicious). The team could have not been more helpful.

We were guests at a wedding last week and felt compelled to send our thanks to the team at Cripps Barn. From the moment we drove into the grounds of what can only be described as a simply stunning venue to the moment we left we were left in awe of the sheer quality of every single element of the day. The barn and grounds were jaw-droppingly beautiful (it’s hard for a Yorkshireman to say this about anywhere other than my home county!). The staff were absolutely wonderful and attentive, the food was sumptuous and the overall experience was absolutely incredible. Once again our heartfelt thanks to the entire team who did such a wonderful job in the day.

The setting of Cripps Barn speaks for itself, it is surrounded by beautiful Cotswold countryside and has lots of outdoor space for your guests to spend time in. Before the wedding, the staff were incredible - so helpful and accommodating for our needs. The food tasting event was brilliantly organised and we got to try all the delicious food (which made choosing really difficult!). On the day, all the food was divine and our guests were raving about how amazing it all was. We would definitely recommend the beef brick with each table having a chef to carve the meat - was great fun. Cripps are booked up most of the year and for very good reason. It is a magical wedding venue with exceptional staff and facilities. You will be bowled over if you choose this as your wedding venue and we couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

My daughter’s wedding was held at your Cripps Barn last Thursday and I just wanted to say thank you to your staff for making it such a fantastic day. The whole venue looked wonderful, the stone barn, the reception area, the gardens and patio were all prepared to a very high standard. The people serving and attending to our requirements were extremely attentive to each of the guests without ever appearing intrusive. They were invisible most of the time except when they were required, and I wasn’t alone in this comment. The food was the best that I have had at any wedding and there was plenty of it. Most of the guests I spoke to commented on the fun in dressing up in the apron and chef’s hat and carving the meat. You should be very proud of the people that are working for you and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who was thinking of arranging a wedding. Once again thank you for helping to make my daughter and son-in-law’s day so wonderful.

I just wanted to drop you all a little note now that we are home from honeymoon, to say a huge thank you for a wonderful day. The whole team were amazing, they felt like part of the gang whilst also making sure we had the most fantastic day and that our guests were well looked after. From the help with decorations, to recommending the very best suppliers, to making the most delicious food and keeping the drinks flowing. Everything was absolutely perfect, and your team managed all of this on the hottest day of the year without a pause. Our guests were super impressed with the food, the gorgeous venue,and the almighty rave up that followed. A massive shout out and special mention to Jodie, our fabulous front of house support who was a total rock and a joy to have around on the day. Well done Jodie, it was a scorcher and you soldiered on like it was nothing. Thanks Cripps, what a wonderful place and we will cherish the memories forever.

From the first time we came to see Cripps to the actual big day itself, we have loved this venue in its entirety. The venue itself is perfect, rural, tucked away in a beautiful location with perfect views all around (great photograph opportunities). Intimate enough for out 50 or so guests without making us feel swamped. We got married outside in the glade with a humanist celebrant. The wonderful thing about Cripps was that they had the option of inside the barn or outside, each equally as beautiful as the other. This really swung it for us in terms of choice. The staff are brilliant, they are extremely experienced and very good at what they do - making people’s big days perfect. No detail was left out and our front of house (Jodie) and meeting planner (Flora) made the whole process smooth and enjoyable, taking a lot of stress as away. Always on hand to answer my last minute questions and handle my panics on the phone. Couldn’t rate them highly enough. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the food it was cooked to absolute perfection. The chef accommodated our dietary needs perfectly even at last minute which goes to show that this is a venue that does go the extra mile to make your day a perfect one. Quick and no-fuss serving on big platters. The waiters replaced drinks on the table timely and efficiently. Camping - this was a major positive for us. A lot of our guests opted to camp alongside the venue with us (Canvas Cottage - a glamping company can be found on the Cripps website).

We have so much to thank you for, I don’t know where to start. The whole day was perfect from start to finish thanks to all of you. The food was sublime – we had a lot of people say it was the best wedding food they have ever had, and we definitely agree. The venue is just wonderful, and you just made everything look effortless, but I know how much hard work goes into it. It was truly the best day of our lives – so many amazing memories. We hope to be back very soon, we are encouraging our friends to get married at Cripps too!

Just wanted to say an enormous thank you for everything - we both agreed that there’s not a single thing we’d change, or that didn’t go perfectly. Much of that is down to how helpful and brilliant you all are. Thank you for making planning the wedding so easy and the day so stunning and seamless.

Cripps Barn is a stunning venue and everyone was completely in awe of the place. The flower girls and page boy loved having all the beautiful grounds to run freely in.
