Civil Weddings

    We can guide you through the procedure you will need to follow in order to get married or hold your Civil Partnership at Harefield Barn. Devon Registration Service employs a wonderful team of highly skilled Registrars, and two will be present for your wedding.  One will conduct your ceremony, and the other will ensure all the legalities are observed and supervise the signing of the schedule.

    After you have checked with us that your preferred date is available, your first call should be to Devon Registration Service Ceremonies Team on 0345 155 1002.  They will be able to check the date is free and take your booking, explain the process of giving notice and any costs involved.  All the information is also available on their website at

    Once your date is booked with both Harefield Barn and the Registration Service – the fun begins!

    There are seven locations licenced and available for your ceremony; The Main Hall, The Gallery, The Clock House, The Bar, The Leveret Suite, and the Porch.  This gives you an enormous amount  of flexibility to your arrangements.   Details for these are given in The Venue page.

    If you would prefer to have a special ceremony away from one of the licenced locations, this is currently possible under amended government regulations brought in during the pandemic. Devon Registration staff are also happy to carry out the very brief legal part of the marriage with you and your witnesses in one of the licenced locations within the building, and then conduct a full Commitment Ceremony attended by all your guests elsewhere.  

    You could also choose to attend a Register Office beforehand for the legal exchange of vows, and then employ a member of Devon Registration Service or an independent celebrant to perform a Commitment Ceremony for you at Harefield. As a former Registrar, this is something I can personally do for you if you wish.

    Again, flexibility is our motto – we want you to be able to enjoy your day, your way, and will help you achieve that however we 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!
