Well Hidden, Worth Finding
Tucked away in a quiet corner of south Suffolk, Dove Barn is a romantic, rural wedding barn nestling among rolling wheat fields and rambling hedgerows. Just outside the village of Boxford Dove Barn offers you a relaxed and rustic venue set in the grounds of the elegant Castlings Hall.
Dove Barn excels in intimate weddings from around 25 people and up to 110 guests. Set on a working farm, the venue encompasses two inter-connecting barns, a sheltered terrace, and large wedding meadow.
At Dove Barn the emphasis is on offering fewer weddings at a relaxed pace. We only ever do 15 weddings each year, so when they're gone, they're gone! Whether weekend or mid-week the hire period is from midday the day before your wedding until midday the day after. Giving you lots of time to decorate it in your own unique style.
Dove Barn offers:
- Civil ceremonies for up to 108 guests
- Sit down wedding breakfasts for up to 120 guests
- Receptions parties for up to 150 guests
- Stunning gardens and grounds for wedding photographs
- Situated just 30 minutes from Colchester, Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds
- An abundance of accommodation choices within 10 minutes drive
- Exclusive and private use of the whole venue from midday on Friday until midday on Sunday
