Weddings at Coltsfoot

Weddings at Coltsfoot, the exclusive use wedding venue, guarantee you and your loved ones can enjoy the day in privacy.  A beautiful barn setting, recently renovated which is surrounded by stunning Hertfordshire countryside. Having the venue exclusively really does make your special day just that bit more special!

We offer availability throughout the year -spring weddings, summer weddings, autumn weddings and winter weddings. We are licensed to hold civil weddings and partnerships within our main barn and external enclosure.


Our experienced and passionate wedding team are dedicated to ensuring your day is just as you planned, so you can relax and enjoy every minute of the day.

The main barn area services the whole day, transforming from ceremony to wedding breakfast then converting into the evening entertainment area. The beautiful forty acres of countryside, surrounding our barn venue, provide romantic backdrops for fabulous photographs, to capture your wedding perfectly.

For the civil ceremonies we can seat up to 120 guests with room for a further 20 guests standing. The actual ceremony has to take place within our main barn, as we do not have an outdoor licence. Many couples choose to be married in the main foyer and their guests seated in our sheltered, wooden beamed structure in the courtyard. For further information about civil ceremonies please click here.

We can seat up to one hundred and twenty day guests and a further fifty evening guests (our minimum guest number is seventy day guests on Fridays and Saturdays). Reception drinks and canapés, weather pending, are served in our pretty courtyard allowing guests to relax and enjoy the surroundings whilst the photographer/s get to work! During the winter months we have a separate bar area with a roaring log fire where guests can gather during the reception for drinks and canapés. A very cosy Winter Wedding setting.

The wedding breakfast is served in our main barn, with views overlooking the courtyard on one side and acres of beautiful countryside on the other.

Having our venue exclusively means you can be assured that you and your guests will be the only ones celebrating your day with you.

“To all the team at Coltsfoot, thank you for making our special day perfect! You have all been so helpful, we can’t thank you enough. We couldn’t imagine our wedding day anywhere else”

Coltsfoot also has thirteen luxurious suites which are situated in the main courtyard area and two Shepherd’s Huts.

This further extends your special day through to the following morning. These suites were original stables attached to the Main Barn, which have been  lovingly transformed and the Shepherd’s Huts have been built from scratch by Richard, the proprietor, and a small team.

A hearty full English breakfast is served in the main barn the following morning, where you can join your family and friends and continue your marital celebrations over breakfast.

Coltsfoot is a blank canvas, with neutral décor for a wedding day for you to decide how to ‘dress’ it, from the table favours to the flowers and personalise it in your own way.

The menu is one we have maintained for some time, due to the fabulous feedback we repeatedly receive about the dishes. There is a plentiful selection which caters for all tastes and we are always prepared to customise dishes to suit your tastes. We offer regular menu tasting sessions if you wanted to taste the dishes before making a final decision on your wedding breakfast menu.

Our resident DJ, Mr H productions, has over 35 years experience in the wedding industry. In addition to the basic package in your quote, he can also offer various optional extras that you may wish to opt for. He has a range of singers, saxophonists and a huge selection of lighting options and decor. Find out more on
