Gate Street Barn Surrey wedding venue

Gate Street Barn is a beautiful and traditional country barn set in the Surrey countryside, with friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere. The barn is built of oak reclaimed from trees that were felled by the infamous 1987 “hurricane”.

It’s located just south of Bramley, near Guildford in Surrey – it’s one of my favourite venues and also one of the closest!

Weddings are often stressful affairs - there is so much to organise ahead of the big day, and sometimes this carries over into the day itself - but John and Jason and their families and friends sailed through it all very happily, and a hugely enjoyable time was had by all.
