Comments from Paul Martin:
The Priory Barn at Little Wymondley near Hitchin in Hertfordshire is a unique wedding venue where clients enjoy exclusive use for their day. The Priory is a well established venue for private functions. In particular, the special atmosphere of the barn and its surrounding provides a unique setting for a relaxed, informal wedding reception.

The Priory is licensed for civil ceremonies. There are two locations: the gazebo for summer weddings (weather permitting), and the barn. The barn will seat up to 150 guets at round tables, and there is ample car parking nearby. The venue has its own chef, who can cater for a wide variety of menu’s.

I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity of photographing a wedding at the Priory on a glorious summers day. The part Jewish ceremony took place in the gazebo, followed by dancing on the lawns; needless to say, this was memorable and unique. From a photography perspective, there are an ’embarassment of riches’, provided the weather is favourable!. There are beautful lawns, trees, flowering plants, benches and two ponds. The barn is full of character, though photographing indoors proved to be quite a challenging experience. I would recommend use of tripod in this situation, so as to record background detail and the beauty, atmosphere and character of the beams.

The Priory is a fantastic Hertfordshire wedding venue, and one which I recommend very highly, for the truly unique event.
