Say “I do” to Buckminster venues

Tucked away on the beautiful border of Lincolnshire and Leicestershire, Buckminster village boasts two exquisite blank canvas venues where you can build the wedding day of your dreams.

Buckminster Barn and Buckminster Lakeside seamlessly blend the rural character of their settings with elegant style and stunning rolling countryside surroundings. Close to the market towns of Grantham and Melton Mowbray, these hidden gems are fully-licensed, no corkage locations that can cater for a spectacular celebration or intimate ceremony among family and close friends. As convenient blank canvas spaces, you have the freedom to bring in the suppliers you desire to build your perfect day in a dreamy location.

Offering the more intimate of the two settings, Buckminster Barn emanates the traditional rustic charm of its farm building origins. From the flagstone flooring to the exposed beams and large arching windows, the Barn boasts rich characterful features. Seating up to 60 day guests and accommodating 120 for an evening event, the Barn’s private garden and lawn offer ample space for a marquee to extend the celebrations outdoors. 

Split across two levels, the converted Old Cart Shed is a fabulous drinks reception area to welcome guests whilst upstairs, the Old Hay Loft area provides breathtaking views of the rolling countryside hills. With availability from September 2022 into the new year, Buckminster Barn’s panoramic views and romantic style provide an optimal balance of simplicity and sophistication sure to sweep you off your feet. 

As one of the most unique wedding venues in the area, Buckminster Lakeside is located along a private driveway, nestled amongst 15 acres of private parkland and woodland. The magnificent lake provides a breathtaking backdrop for photographs; the tranquil outdoor setting has the capacity for 499 guests to revel in the romantic countryside surroundings. 

Buckminster Lakeside is the ideal blank canvas venue, allowing you the freedom to choose and supply all decorations, catering and entertainment. As an effortless evening setting, the lakeside views can be further complemented by a fireworks display to add another unforgettable moment to your day. Available exclusively for up to six weddings a year only, this exclusive venue is truly a rare gem to be dearly cherished.

Perhaps what makes Buckminster Barn and Buckminster Lakeside even more appealing is their ideal locations. The privacy and rural settings don’t compromise on practicality, with both the Barn and the Lakeside within 25 miles of Nottingham, Leicester, Loughborough and Peterborough. They also offer the opportunity to hold a traditional church wedding ceremony just a stone’s throw away at St. John the Baptist Church in Buckminster village. Its traditional interior provides all the elegance you need to tie the knot with a charming backdrop, before extending the celebrations to one of the unforgettable Buckminster venues.
