The Waiting Game

    A little while into lockdown I was contacted by Brandon Apps, a local filmmaker and photographer who asked if he could come to Harefield Barn and make a short film.  Like most people in the wedding industry, his busy season had completely disappeared due to the coronavirus pandemic, and in spite of working two other jobs, he found himself with time on his hands to hone his filmmaking skills. or

    Bran said he had been inspired by one of my instagram posts contrasting just how quiet the Barn was this year compared to last, and we were delighted to welcome him and his friend Ben Rogers, who acted as editor and has extensive sound knowledge, to spend some time filming and recording whilst the place is empty.

    The result is this wonderfully atmospheric short film which captures that feeling of waiting so well.

    Sadly, the government restrictions mean that Harefield Barn remains a place of quiet reflective beauty.  With so many other sectors of the hospitality industry now able to open up, it’s hard not to feel a little left behind, and, OK, I confess, grumpy about it!  However, we completely understand the need to keep everyone as safe as possible, and so will, of course continue to follow the guidance given.

    And in the meantime, ‘the waiting game’ continues, but we can’t tell you how much we are  looking forward to Harefield Barn  being filled with noise and fun again at some simply amazing parties just as soon as we possibly can!

    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!
