Bassmead Manor Barns

Staploe, PE19 5JB, Cambridgeshire, Cambridgeshire
Up to 150 guests
At Bassmead Manor Barns, there is a rich family history that runs throughout every part of the unique wedding venues. The estate’s blend of modern styling with centuries-old architecture truly reflects the journey of the Squire family to modernise Bassmead into the well-loved venue it is today.

A true family home


Richard and Cordelia Squire, the owners of Bassmead, are the seventh generation of the Squire family to call the farm home, and they now raise their three small children on the estate. Bassmead has been owned by the Squires since 1845, when Richard’s ancestor Sir Peter Squire bought the farm to grow herbs for his apothecary business in London. Sir Peter was a royal chemist to Queen Victoria, and it is believed that herbs grown at Bassmead Manor Farm were used in the Coronation Oil used at royal coronations! Today Richard continues to work the farmstead, which has expanded from 400 acres to 1660 acres over the last 40 years, while Cordelia is a Chartered Physiotherapist and runs her own business locally.


Over 700 years of history


The Bassmead estate is over 700 years old, with the Grade II listed manor house and farm buildings sitting within the medieval moat enclosure that gives the barn wedding venue its unique moated status today. In 2012, English Heritage, Bedford Conservation officers and County Archaeologists helped support the Squires in a huge archaeological excavation of the old yard that uncovered a medieval cobbled courtyard, which is now part of the garden and the beautiful new Bridge Barn.


A wedding venue with a difference


The Squire family first had the idea to set up Bassmead Manor Barns as a wedding venue 15 years ago, after Richard’s cousin Hannah asked to hold her reception on the farm. Richard set about restoring the old barn that stored agricultural machinery, and it was to become Rickety Barn brides and grooms love today. The wheels were set in motion, and over the next decade Bassmead Manor Barns was transformed into a warm and welcoming wedding venue. When it became clear that couples loved the family feel and stunning location, the Squires renovated the barns fully in 2012. With a team of expert planners and designers, as well as Cordelia’s eye for interior design, Bassmead Manor became the unique wedding venue it is today.

Up to 120 guests
based in Shalstone near Buckingham. We have been running weddings using our traditional pole and rope marquee since 2011 after ten years of hosting informal celebrations with family and friends. We couldn’t think of a better place to get married so in 2014 we did just that and tied the knot here at Huntsmill Farm. You’ll probably be able to spot us in some of the photos! Now ready for our next adventure we have converted our 18th century stone barn into a beautiful wedding venue.

Our rural idyll

With our new wedding barn we offer a space where you can get married and party the night away all in the same place. Accommodation is located onsite around the courtyard, so you and your nearest and dearest need only stumble across the cobbles to your comfy cottage once you’ve finished celebrating the best day of your life. The quiet rural location means you and your guests won't be disturbed – we have no close neighbours apart from the rabbits and red kites! The barn and courtyard lead out to our stunning gardens. Fields surround the gardens and as a working farm the different crops can provide a truly picturesque background (depending on the time of year you decide to get married).


You are free to pick your own suppliers (caterers need to be chosen from our list of partners) and you can decorate the barn and gardens however your heart desires.

Bijou Weddings - Notley Abbey

Aylesbury Road, Thame, Buckinghamshire, HP17 8TN, Thame, Oxfordshire
Up to 250 guests
Notley Abbey is an utterly unique country house wedding venue on the Buckinghamshire – Oxfordshire border. This historic Buckinghamshire residence has a truly magical past – if its majestic medieval walls could talk they would tell of a millennium of the decadent celebrations of not only Hollywood royalty, but royalty itself. This beautiful country house wedding venue, alive with memories and history, is now uniquely available as an exclusive use wedding venue in which you can craft your perfect wedding day and create some lifelong memories of your own.

This beautiful wedding venue was acquired by Bijou Wedding Venues, specialists in the provision of exclusive use country house wedding venues near London and the planning and hosting of truly spectacular and unique wedding celebrations in those venues, in 2006 after several years of unfortunate neglect. The stunning wedding venue in Buckinghamshire, a listed building and registered national monument, was the subject of a long, sensitive and detailed refurbishment which had at its heart a passion for beautiful historic buildings, a love for the very best in modern simplicity and a burning desire to gently coax this historic home into the 21st century – returning it to its former glory while making it relevant, accessible and welcoming to as many couples and families as are lucky enough to cross its threshold and share in its history and romance by making it part of their own, unique, special day. This beautiful Buckinghamshire wedding venue, now returned to its former glory, is far too special to remain hidden, surrounded by its truly spectacular grounds, from the world at the end of its long, beautiful, tree-lined driveway. It is too important a historical building not to be shared. It is too perfect for hosting splendid parties not to do just that and it truly buzzes to life when full of celebration, merriment and joy.


We at Bijou invite you to make this incredible country house venue part of your story. We have transformed and upgraded it into an award-winning historic, romantic and unique exclusive use wedding venue and now our Notley team devote themselves to two things and two things only – the hosting of unique and special wedding days for our lucky couples, and the care and preservation of this remarkable building so that it will, we hope, always proudly and quietly oversee the most joyful, romantic celebrations in this wonderful corner of the English countryside.
