You are not obliged to hold your wedding ceremony on-site, however, we are fully licensed to conduct both indoor and outdoor wedding ceremonies at Long Furlong Barn. If you wish to get married offsite, then the venue package hire will remain the same, and the venue will be exclusively yours, all day.
What time can I access the barn for my wedding or event?
Access is from 9 am for your wedding day, and a complimentary 1 hour set up time before your start time for private and corporate events.
Who sets up my decór on the day of my event?
if you are using Long Furlong Barn decór, then this will be available and in situ for your event. If you are bringing your own personal decór, then it will be your responsibility to site at the beginning and remove your décor at the end of the day of your wedding or event with us.
When can my venue stylist or florist set up and takedown before and after my event?
if you are using a venue stylist or florist for your wedding day, then they will have the same access as you do. Please be aware that you may incur an additional charge from your supplier, should you need to remove your décor on the same day of your event after midnight. Please contact your venue stylist or Florist for further information.

Standard hire times for weddings are from 9 am to 12 am at weekends and 9 am to 11.30 pm midweek and Sundays.
Can we leave cars overnight after an event?
Yes, you may leave yours overnight in the overflow car park and collect them the following day before 10 am. We would strongly advise a taxi at all times for weddings and Christmas parties as a 10 am pick up may not be safe the day after a wedding or Christmas party.
