Built in 1576 and hosting weddings since 1984 Donington Park Farmhouse was probably the first barn wedding venue in the country! Nestled in the picturesque Derbyshire countryside the site is located between the market towns of Melbourne and Castle Donington. It offers plenty of outdoor space in which to enjoy the spectacular views... this venue is truly something special.
The old world charm of the original brick & timber barns create a memorable setting whilst the friendly & personable staff make you & your guests feel welcome & confortable.
Donington Park Farmhouse really is rather magical - and a little bit different. If the idea of eating in original Pig Sties and dancing in a magnificent Threshing Barn appeals then this is the place for you. Your wedding reception can be as formal or as casual as you like; you set the tone and the fantastic staff will be right there with you.
You can hold your civil ceremony in either the Hitching Room, for up to 80 guests, or The Threshing Barn, for up to 150. Both spaces offer plenty of character and bags of potential to decorate and turn into something uniquely you.
The Barn is fully licensed and heated for all year round use and can cater for celebrations of all sizes, from small intimate gatherings to bustling parties of up to 300 guests. Deck the place with fairy lights, fill it with flowers or blow-up hundreds of balloons or play lawn games in the courtyard.
You'll be treated to a range of delicious catering options and are invited to be as formal or as relaxed with this as you like.
Relax and enjoy a day that's different. With all of it's original features, multiple buildings, stunning views, sheltered courtyard and miles of open fields that surround it, you really can be spoilt for choice for a wonderful backdrop to your wedding photographs. I always enjoy wedding days at this venue, as it's grounds offers such diversity & allows couples to have a wedding that reflects their personality. They can be as creative as they wish, which means every occasion is different & this is reflected in the original wedding photographs I get to capture for them.
