"We spent a long time looking for a perfect venue for our wedding and we found it when we visited Stokes Farm Barn. Not only is the scenery varied and beautiful leading to some amazing photos but the service provided by Suz was fantastic. So many of our guests commented on how polite, attentive and helpful Suz and her team were, they really made the day perfect for us.
One of the biggest factors for us was the layout of the barn which allows for moving from one portion of the reception to the next without any clearing up getting in the way.
The in-house caterers were phenomenal as well. We opted for the BBQ and a hog roast for the evening meal, all of our guests enjoyed the food immensely, it was perfectly cooked and tasted great. There's nothing worse than underfeeding your guests and there was no chance of that here, the combination of quantity and the high quality of the food made the wedding meal perfect for us.
I can't fault anything about this venue or Suz and her team. The barn looks beautiful inside and out, we had great weather (which I'm sure Suz arranged personally) and she was incredibly accommodating of some of our stranger requests both on the run up to the wedding and on the day.
All in all, thank you Suz for your part in making our wedding day perfect."

"Thanks for making our day so special. It went without a hitch and that was down to the work of you and your team. Food was incredible and so many of our guests commented on how delicious it was so please pass on compliments to the chef. We are at the airport now reflecting and keep smiling thinking back to how great it all was!"
Laura & Graham, July 2019
"We would just like to say a MASSIVE thank you for all your help and support on our wedding day! Without you and your team it wouldn’t have been as perfect as it was. We had nonstop compliments about how beautiful the venue is and how delicious the food was! You work so hard on the day/the lead up and it definitely didn’t go unnoticed, we just cannot thank you enough."
Hannah & Ryan, July 2019
"We cannot thank Suzie and her team enough for an absolutely amazing wedding day. The barn was beautiful, the food was soooo delicious, must give a shout out to the chef and his team. The staff were super attentive and professional. The recommended Florist and DJ were a perfect fit for us. A relaxed environment with all the trimmings!"

"Chris and Elizabeth’s wedding was perfect. That’s all I need to say!
They both looked so naturally happy the whole day, it was wonderful.
The guests just loved the wedding. The feedback we got was really mega! “Best wedding ever” a frequent comment. So many said how relaxed the wedding was, that the setting was perfect, that the staff and DJ were fantastic, and that the food quality was way above anything they had had at a wedding before. Some even thought the canapés were the main meal (they then had a shock!). Best quote of the day was from one elderly gent who said “This is definitely the best wedding I have ever been to - and I can assure you, I have been to far too many!”
The day flowed seamlessly and I realise how much planning and organisation is needed to achieve that. You were so helpful with your friendly can-do professional attitude to get the day right.
Lynne and I wish to thank you so much for all you did to give Chris and Elizabeth the genuine perfect day, and for the rest of our lives we will be proud to say that our daughter Elizabeth got married at Stokes Farm Barn."

This is hands down the best venue in the Surrey/ Berkshire/ Hampshire area. We vetted over 20 venues eventually settling on Stokes Farm Barn and we are so glad we did! From pre wedding meetings to incredible service on the day Suzanne and her team were excellent. The venue is a perfect setting for a special day and we will remember it for a long time to come. Thank you Suzanne!

"We recently had our Wedding at Stokes Farm Barn in June and it was fantastic from start to finish.
From meeting Suzanne and visiting the venue , we instantly fell in love with the wonderful charm and character of the Barn. It was the first venue we came across and we looked at other barns for comparison but nothing compared to it ! It’s a lovely size , with a fabulous gallery bar which looks down on to the dance floor so itkeeps everyone all together. The beautiful patio area surrounded by flowers and lovely scenery. Wonderful for pictures !
We had a beautiful wedding day here and Suzanne was so helpful in ensuring that all our needs / requests were met, nothing was to much trouble at all . Her staff kept everything running smoothly on the day. All of our guests were so complementary about how beautiful the venue was and they didn’t know it was there and how nicely layed out it was for dining & dancing etc. A beautiful hidden gem that has such a relaxed feel to it.
For what ever type of occasion it can accommodate.
But for our wedding day , it could not have been more perfect ! Beautiful !"
Sophie & Scott, June 2018
"Stokes Farm Barn was the perfect fit for our wedding - a beautiful venue, lovely outside space and a really relaxed feel. Planning our wedding could not have been more stress free, with Suz allowing us so much freedom over the day but also giving us her guidance whenever asked. On the day itself, Suz and her team managed everything beautifully and allowed us to feel completely relaxed throughout. The barn gave the perfect setting for our ceremony and lots of our guests have commented on how much they loved the venue. We cannot recommend Suz, her team and Stokes Farm Barn enough!"
Pippa & Richard, June 2018
"We had our wedding at Stokes Farm on 19 May 2018 and I cannot speak highly enough of how amazing it was. From when we first visited the venue in October, we knew there was no competition. Not only is the venue set in beautiful surroundings, the barns offer incredible flexible space meaning that we could have our wedding breakfast and evening party in separate spaces. The mezzanine bar was an added extra, crating a fun and relaxed space that gave the exact feel we wanted for our day. The icing on the cake was Suzanne who was extremely professional while being very warm and friendly - she completely took the pressure off us on the day and was just an absolute delight through all the planning. Exclusive access to the venue meant that we could really make it ours. We could not have dreamed of a better wedding venue or day and I really really can’t recommend Stokes enough."
Emily & Jonny, May 2018
"Stokes Farm Barn and most importantly Suzanne were fantastic!!!! We got married on the 10th June 2017 and our day was perfect. All of our guests were commenting through the evening and after the day on how impressive the venue looked and how well organised it all was. We decided to go for the all inclusive package and feel it was more than worth the money. The barn was beautifully decorated, the food was delicious, the DJ was brilliant and the drinks were flowing. We can't really say thank you enough but our big day was as stress free as possible all down to Stokes Farm Barn. Thank you again."

"Stunning location, great for a chilled out wedding.
Stokes Farm Barn should be no.1 on your wedding venue list in Wokingham! Location: Easy to get to from local churches, hotels etc. but also hidden enough that you feel like you're somewhere completely different and away from everyday life. It is a beautifully landscaped area around the barn, lovely little lake, enough space for children to run around and have fun and a great space for photos. The barn: Absolutely stunning with and without decorations! A good size for a big wedding, and nice to have the four areas for people to be in (the bar, the main barn for dancing, the lower barn and outside). We had several older guests there who didn't want to be sat in the dance area all night, so having the lower barn to sit in was good for them! The bar: Such a cute area and very well stocked. We had been pre-warned that the card machine signal wasn't great, so guests knew to bring cash. We were also chuffed that our request to buy in Newcastle Brown for my northern Dad and Uncle was taken on board. Suzanne and Erik: They were both helpful in making our day fun and relaxed. Suzanne had pre-warned us that she could unfortunately not be there on our wedding day but left us in the capable hands of Erik who helped the day run smoothly. The venue options that we could choose from were clear, and although Suzanne works elsewhere for the winter months, we still heard from here in reasonable time to continue arranging our day. Overall: We are so pleased we went with Stokes Farm Barn! We and our guests loved the venue!"

"The most perfect day!
My parents found Stokes farm barn and what a find it was. From the beginning it was such a lovely easy process, Suzanne was so helpful and really allowed me to do most things that I wanted, which for a control freak bride like me was perfect! We were able to get into the venue a few days before so we could get everything set up perfectly and on the day itself Suzanne was on hand all day ensuring everything went down exactly as we wanted it to. The location is also so beautiful and we got some fantastic photos. I have had people tell me since it was one of the best wedding they went to and I really think it was down to how well the day ran. Suzanne knows her venue and is great at recommending the best options but not pushy at all. We couldn't have done that without Suzanne and stokes farm barn. It will always hold the most special memories for us and I would recommend anyone wanting to get married in a rustic barn location to go for Stokes Farm Barn."
Natasha Taylor, August 2016
"Nick and I would like to pass on our huge thanks to you for letting us use your barn – it was an absolutely perfect venue for his party, and we’ve received so many glowing comments from our guests about what a fantastic place it was to have a party. It was a real pleasure to meet you, and I particularly appreciate you offering to take down all the decorations on Sunday morning (along with the eggs and never-ending offers of cups of tea – thank you!!)."
Jenny & Nick Barnes, November 2015
