You can come and do a whole lot of planning in one go, or just try some canapes and soak up the inspiration!

We asked our couples why they found the Open Day so valuable in the run-up to their Gate Street Barn Wedding, read on to see their answers.

“We met all of our suppliers at open days and got so many ideas generally. And it was just a chance to fall in love with the venue even more every time we went.” Emily & Adam – August 2019

“Meeting the faces behind the company names really helped us connect with talented passionate suppliers. Being endorsed by gate street helped us know that every person there was good at what they did, but seeing or tasting examples of their work in the flesh really helped us know who to go with. Our wedding day was incredible at gate street and we had no regrets about any of the suppliers we had!” Sian &  Matthew  – June 2019

“We enjoyed seeing suppliers we hadn’t met face to face and being able to visualise how to utilise the space. We’d already chosen our photographer (a family friend) and she came with us so that she could see the venue and get ideas of what spaces she would use and when they looked best depending on light, etc” Stephanie & Daniel – June 2015

“We met the whole GSB team who convinced us this was the perfect place for us! Also our DJ, catering, evening fish and chip van and cake were booked from the open day!  Lovely atmosphere on the day, really made to feel welcome”  Sarika & Dave – September 2019

“We met both our DJ and cake maker at the open day, as well as having the opportunity for a quick catch up with our caterers. It was so great to have the chance to look around again in our own time. We were so pleased we picked Gate Street Barn as our venue” Charlotte & Matt – August 2018

We found someone to make my husband’s wedding band. Attending the open day also made us 100% sure we had made the right decision choosing Gate Street Barn for our wedding. Wish we could do it all again!Bela & Stephen – July 2016

“The Open Day totally helped us visual things as well as confirm the fact we loved the suppliers we had already earmarked” Lucy & Ian – December 2017
