Courtyard Barn 


Five hurricane lamps with ivory church candles, which are flanked by two clear glass tea light holders on each side, sit on the five window sills. We provide all the candles for these (and any other candle holders we supply) and replenish them for ready for the evening. You can extra decoration onto the windowsill if you like (a touch of gyp between the tea lights is our favourite)!

We also supply ten (one for each of the pillars) hanging grey hearts, holding tea light candles

Our pallet wall offers a simple rustic background for a ‘traditional’ ceremony set-up and you are welcome to add extra decorations, such as floral displays, draping, hanging hoops or more fairy lights!

The wall measures 8 feet high and 14.5 feet across.

Catesby Barn​

Fairy lights are wrapped around the three tie bars and the mezzanine railings. Your florist could then add foliage, flowers or bunting to the mezzanine railing to complement the fairy lights already there. We have two hanging candelabras which hang in the middle of the room. These look beautiful and romantic on their own however to really make them stand out, your florist could add additional foliage. We also have plates which hang underneath to add a large floral display if you wish!

We have stylish copper-coloured hanging heart tea light holders at various heights around the walls.

Alternatively, you could hang something else! There are 12 hooks in total.

Dodmoor House Hanging Hearts

We have a pulley system in the Catesby Barn which allows you to add either three lines of bunting (running the length of the barn) or up to 18 pom poms or lanterns. This is a great way to inject some colour into the room and can really enhance your colour theme!  

Using our lantern lines we can loop three lines between the two outside tie bars = 8m (26ft) per line is needed

(Please note that if you choose to have three lines to hang items from, you cannot have the candelabras, however you may have two lines to hang from and the candelabras in the middle).

We have silver table name holders (which take postcard to A5 size thick card) or chalk board table number stands, as well as two table plan boards and easels.


Both boards can sit landscape or portrait on the easel legs. One is A1 in size and the other is 59cm by 69cm (this one is also made from wood from the barns)! If you have your own frame you'd be welcome to just use the legs.


A wire heart shaped photo frame which you can put photos in if you wish. 


Your guests love to know what is happening and when! We have a heart with magnets where you can place a small order of the day inside for when guests arrive!


There are also various hooks and nails in the walls which you may wish to hang cute signs from; we can again suggest where these will work best. We personally love a bit of photo bunting with old photos of the couple, photos of guests or ones from the stag and hen dos!

Wooden Logs, Mirror Slices and Tea lights

We have a selection of large and small wooden log slices which make a great base for your centrepieces (and match our wonderful wooden cake stands too) and really add to the rustic charm of the venue.

There are also some mirror plates which look gorgeous with lots of candles on top and work really well with our round tables.

We can supply three tealights per round table to compliment these as seen in the photo below.
