What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you imagine a luxury wedding venue? Most people would picture a grand ballroom with crystal chandeliers, or a picturesque garden where the ceremony is held. But what about a rustic bar? That’s exactly what Hazel Gap Barn offers. A sprawling venue with views of rolling fields and sheep, complete with a pond and paddock for your horse-and-carriage entrance.
If you’re wondering whether this is the right place to get married, you’ll be happy to learn that the answer is yes. It’s not the destination of choice for brides and grooms who want a very formal wedding with a lot of pom, but it can be the perfect spot for those who are looking for a relieved, rustic and more relaxed vibe.
At first glance, the venue looks like an old-fashioned country barn. It’s actually located in a quaint village of Budby in Nottinghamshire where people come from all over the country to get married. The venue has been thoroughly renovated and now offers a rustic environment that is available year-round. You’ll enjoy privacy at this location, as well as the chance to participate in a variety of activities that make your special day even more memorable.
We’ve compiled a short list of what to expect when you’re planning a Hazel Gap Barn wedding.

It’s a great venue for any kind of wedding, but we especially love it for its rustic country vibe.

The rustic barn in Nottinghamshire is situated on open, rolling countryside and includes a range of different spaces for your guests to relax, dance, or just enjoy themselves. The whole property can be yours alone on weekends, and even during the week.

Wedding photography at Hazel Gap Barn
Hazel Gap Barn is a beautiful venue for your wedding! The secluded location will allow you to focus on the most important part of your special day: you and your spouse-to-be. And the rustic yet elegant barn will provide a unique backdrop for all of your wedding photos. It’s also one of the best locations in the area for scenery—the nearby mountains, ponds, and lakes make it easy to get picturesque shots.
The barn is surrounded by beautiful woodland at the back and an open driveway to the front. There are endless photo opportunities around the property, from the rustic barn with large wooden frame doors and glass windows to the trees and the courtyard.
The front driveway provides lots of space if you want to go for a walk after your ceremony or take pictures with the barn in the background.
When you choose Hazel Gap Barn as your venue, you’ll want to make sure your photographer is up for the challenge of capturing your wedding day. The main barn where the actual ceremony will take place can prove to be tricky to your photographer as there are different lighting scenarios in different parts of the barn. However an experienced photographer should tackle this with no problem.
Nighttime photos at Hazel Gap can be particularly rewarding. Beautifully lit barn provides a spectacular backdrop to your photos.
