Willow & Josh

Our journey with Willow and Josh started back in August 2022 when the venue was nowhere near complete and required a lot of vision to see the potential. They had enquired with us and we had eagerly given them a call. We had a lovely chat on the phone and arranged a tour, but we were really feeling the pressure when they told us they would be driving all the way from London just for their tour: what if they didn’t like it after spending all that time travelling!

As we were showing them around we could see that they were gradually getting more and more excited about the venue and to our amazement they totally saw the potential! For Willow and Josh Moat Hall Barns ticked all the boxes as they wanted to have a completely relaxed wedding, with informal dining, informal drinks and filled with their personalities. They did not want to be tied to any suppliers or rules that prevented them for personalising every aspect of their day. They wanted to fill a space with decorations and pieces that represented them as a couple. Willow had a Grandfather with an antique business and she already had her eye on wonderful, unique items she was going to use on their day.

As for their wedding day, well we will let the photographs do the talking but it was an amazing day filled with colour, fun and sentiment, with the ceremony being performed by a close friend. Their photographer, David Boynton has an eye for quirky, rustic charm that is a match made in heaven for Moat Hall Barns.

Our favourite memory of the day: There were so many great things about this day but we were very humbled as their friends and family had come from all over the world and were making memories at our little farm wedding venue.

It’s a true credit to any supplier who was involved in this wedding as Willow and Josh had a tall criteria to meet. Not only did they need to fit with the vibe and be offering a fantastic service, they also needed to be sustainable and click with Willow and Josh as a couple.

“Everything was perfect from start to finish – this venue couldn’t have been better with so many different areas and such a beautiful location, everything about it was just stunning. We had the best day of our lives and we couldn’t have pulled it off without such an incredible venue to have it in.”

What a venue! Everyone who came was blown away by the beauty of it. Lots of little gems of wisdom were given when we met with Amy and Ben the day before our wedding, which calmed all our nerves about things coming together. They were so friendly and went the extra mile for us. We would book it again in a heartbeat.
We couldn't have asked for a better place to get married. The quality of the restoration to the site is second to none and Amy and Ben are so welcoming and open, which really supported the wedding planning process to be relaxed and easy going. Anyone considering a DIY hire venue for their special day should 100% go see Moat Hall Barns. You will have the best day you could ask for!
The venue is simply breathtaking and so versatile, but it really is Amy and Ben that add value with their advice, support and unwavering help on the day. Thank you both - everyone said how relaxed and fun and beautiful our wedding was and we had the best day of our lives.
Moat Hall Barns had everything we envisaged for our wedding and more! We cannot thank Amy, Ben and their family enough for their support and the amount of compliments we have received is testament to their hard work. The location was excellent with stunning countryside views all around and is only a stone's throw away from Shrewsbury, which was perfect for guest accommodation.

Having just had the most magical wedding at Moat Hall Barns, we can't thank Amy & Ben enough. It was everything we dreamed of and more. We feel so incredibly lucky that we were able to share such a perfect day with our friends and family. A truly unique venue, with such a family feel. We are so happy that we chose it for our special day.
Every inch of this venue has been so meticulously thought through with couples in mind from start to finish. From the stunning lakeside gazebo to a bigger toilet especially for the bride, everything has been thought of. Not all DIY venues will have owners so willing to get stuck in and be on hand for anything you need. We felt so at home and relaxed during our time here and we cannot thank Amy & Ben enough for everything!
Where do we even begin...Tom and I can't express our gratitude enough for making our day truly magical. We knew instantly when we viewed the venue that this was it, and you far exceeded all our expectations. Your kindness, generosity and attention to detail are beyond compare. You made us feel truly special.
