    This morning I have had a lovely time reliving Jack and Megans stunning day in August, thanks to a really beautiful set of photos Meg sent taken by Cindy Rose Photography.  In fact, it's extremely tricky to choose my favourites!

    As with so many weddings this year, when they reserved their August 2020 date back in March 2019,  we had no idea what was to come, and it wasn't until August this year that they finally got the chance to celebrate in style.  From their first visit, Jack and Meg loved Harefield Barn and have been so supportive as we all tried to juggle dates  and keep the excitement alive.  Although I recognised the name Purchall, it wasn't until Jack's Dad came to help out with preparations the day before the wedding that I made the connection.  In a former life, I spent some time as Administrator at Topsham School where Jack was a pupil - now that does make me feel old!  It was lovely to see some old faces from those Topsham days, and it certainly made me think how far we have come!

    The weather was perfect, and the stage was set with some gorgeous flowers from Gill Clavey, cake from Sue Horder, games from So Devoted and a lovely flower wall from All Floral.

    After their romantic ceremony in the Clock House on the terrace and a 'bridesmaid' never to be forgotten!), Jack, Meg and their guests enjoyed a glass of bubbly and some delicious canapés from M Welsh Catering.  Speeches followed and then a fabulous sirloin of been or roasted aubergine with goats cheese for main, and a trio of deserts for pudding.

    Everyone then relaxed and played games in the beautiful sunshine before dancing the night away to The Guiding Lights from Bristol with Booth Fantasia on hand to snap the guests as they partied.  Space Hoppers take some negotiating in a wedding dress - but that wasn't going to stop Meg!

    Thank you Megan and Jack for choosing Harefield Barn for your special day and letting us be part of the fun!

    Amy and Mark - 30th March 2019

    First of all we would like to start off by saying we had the most amazing Wedding Day, it was everything we'd dreamed and considering we did it all within 8 months, it was most certainly the best day of our lives so thank you very much for letting us have Harefield Barn for our special day. You were a wonderful help and always there via email or phone if ever we needed you and you allowed us to bring our friends and family to visit Harefield Barn on numerous occasions before the wedding so they could share the excitement with us so thank you for this, it was much appreciated.

    So where do we start with the venue; it was the most amazing and beautiful venue with incredible views and we were so lucky with the weather for our special day - it was the cherry on top. The venue has everything you need, from a room for the Bride and Bridal party to get ready in, to the bar with a cosy log burner built in (perfect for those winter/colder months). It has an outdoor fire pit which was also lovely for the evening of our wedding and lots of our guests were very happy to have had this. Harefield has all of the amenities you could possibly need and is the perfect location for a barn wedding. It's the perfect venue if you want a DIY wedding in a rustic, but modern place. Truly beautiful and we couldn't have wished for any better - the views are to die for 😊 The venue/surroundings had SOOO many compliments from all of our guests and everyone loved it just as much as we did! Debbie also has a lot of decorations on offer to hire which is very useful if there's anything you've forgotten. On every occasion we went to view the venue and on the weekend of our own wedding, it was always very clean and tidy and it has such a welcoming atmosphere. 

    I would recommend this venue to anyone, it is truly beautiful, with great owners and magnificent place to get married!
