"Old Luxters Barn proved to be an absolutely fantastic venue for our wedding day. Our wedding planner, Lucie, did everything to get us organized and make us feel comfortable. She kept in regular contact with updates leading up to the wedding. We risked the English May weather and held the ceremony in the garden under the enormous tree. Lucie's team were prepared for the "plan B" ceremony which would be held in the barn if it rained. The garden and vineyards make a beautiful setting. The barn is both cute and beautiful and can be decorated pretty much however you want. We went to town hanging greenery from the roof beams. Lucie was very open to ideas and helpful with the design, and also very clear about what we were/were not allowed to do (no hammering nails into the walls - fair enough!). There isn't much to be saved in doing your own catering due to the corkage and services fees, but once committed to the onsite kitchen we discovered their menu was absolutely stunning. For mains, we had a vague idea about Lebanese food. The chef provided a bespoke menu for us to taste from and it was all delicious! The farmhouse is worth considering if the budget can stretch. Our family were delighted to be able to amble straight to bed after one-too many drinks. It's large, characterful and comfortable. Finally, the staff on the night were brilliant, we barely noticed they were there! They ensure that everything goes to plan and avoid disrupting your day wherever possible, and are all very professional and polite. All in all, an exceptional venue and service from start to finish. Thank you to Lucie and her wonderful team for making it the best day of our lives! "

"Where do I start! I honestly cannot recommend old luxters barn enough, from start to finish everything was just perfect! As soon as we went to view this venue after seeing many others we instantly fell in love with it, from the beautiful cobbled courtyard to the stunning barn it was everything we had imagined having for our big day. Once we had booked our day here we were assigned a wedding coordinator, Lucie, and she was honestly amazing the whole way through. If ever I had a worry or question about anything all it took was an email and she was straight back with the answer or a solution meaning that when it came to the day itself we were both incredibly relaxed and ready to enjoy every minute, and that we did! The day was just perfect and everything we had imagined and more. The staff are super friendly, smiley and there to help with anything. The food was incredible from the tasty canapés to the lovely 2 course meal we chose along with added extras like the gin bar we had in the evening and the pimp my prosecco station during the drinks reception, nothing was too much to ask! We had so much wonderful feedback from guest saying how they wanted to do it all over again as they had enjoyed the day so much! Anyone thinking of getting married here should 100% consider it as we couldn't have asked for more for our special day!"

"Thanks so much. The whole day was perfect from start to finish. You guys set everything up to look absolutely amazing and throughout the afternoon and evening everyone was so friendly and helpful. I think the biggest thing for me was how stress free you and your team made the whole process, including the day itself. All the guests agreed too".

"Luxters is an absolutely beautiful venue. We fell in love with it the second we saw it. From the naturally beautiful barn to the amazing scenery; it's a venue that offers naturally understated beauty. The staff are amazing and always happy to help. The food is perfect and drinks phenomenal. We've been back several times already to stock back up!"

"Old Luxters Barn is a very special venue and we had an incredible wedding day. Honestly the weather and the staff were fantastic on the day. Food and drink are delightful and the onsite accommodation is lovely, I highly recommend renting out the whole farmhouse for the night before and of your wedding, as it is so well kept and seriously charming. One thing to be aware of, this is a very popular venue, every weekend in peak season there is an event going on and this makes meeting with the planners difficult to organise, even in the weekdays. While the wedding planners are very polite and professional, they are extremely busy and not as readily available as advertised. There were also points where I felt that we were irritating them... this came as a shock as we only met with them 4 times in the year leading up to our day. Also, this lead to small things being missed, for example; our decorations were not set up to spec on the day and whilst the venue still looked fantastic, this was of course a bit frustrating. We were refunded the amount in full for those missing items within two weeks. Overall, We loved the venue and have already been back several times for drinks at the winery and brewery. if booking for your wedding, you will not be disappointed."

"Thank you so much for your lovely email - we are settling into married life well and still on a bit of a high I think from the day! I really cannot thank you & the whole team enough for making our wedding day so perfect! We made a quick getaway from the church so arrived a little earlier than our guests so I went for a sneak peek at the yurt and Barn - everything was set up and presented beautifully. The Barn looked simply stunning!!
Everything ran so smoothly, a few changes in timings but Annabel was so accommodating, professional and organised and made me and Ben feel completely at ease! Thank you Annabel! The waiting staff were exceptional, a particular mention to Alice. She was fantastic - really attentive to our guests and was super lovely to the children. She really was willing to go above and beyond (even offering to put our daughter’s dirty nappy in the bin for us!)
Our food was absolutely stunning! Ben and I thoroughly enjoyed it and got so many compliments about it and are still receiving comments about how fantastic it was. This was an important factor for me and Ben, Ben in particular and I know he was so pleased with the food. So thank you to your chefs and kitchen staff! The farmhouse was beautiful and the lovely little addition of a gift and note from yourself in our pool suite was genuinely such a lovely touch. We honestly couldn’t of wished for a better day! Everyone at Old Luxters made it so special. We thank you!"

"We really did have the best day and can’t thank you enough for all your hard work in making it such a perfect day. It really exceeded all expectations and you guys all did an amazing job. The decor set up looked amazing, the service and food was fab and all the little touches around the place and in the accommodation were lovely. So many people complimented the venue, “perfect”, “‘most romantic venue”, “gorgeous place” etc. "

"We were lucky enough to choose Luxter's as our venue and strongly recommend it to any other couples shopping around. The location is beautiful and picturesque, situated in the Chiltern countryside. Every member of staff from Victoria, our Wedding Planner, to Camilla, our Operations Manager, to the wait and bar staff on the day of the wedding were consummate professionals. The food was excellent and our guests were extremely complimentary of the entire event. Wish we could do it all over again!"

"James; he was like a magician always there but never intrusive. He was so genuinely lovely and nothing was too much bother. It is not possible to praise him enough.Thank you you so much for all your help. Charlie, Lucie, Harry and James helped orchestrate the best day of our lives! We will always be grateful."
Gavin & Coral 2017
"Everyone had the most amazing day and more importantly Gav and I thought everything was perfect! The service from nick and camilla was second to none and nothing was too much trouble! They really were fab! Gav and I said that we would love to do it all again but as a guest so that we could enjoy all of the things to do around us see it all from a different perspective haha!!
Honestly, it was everything that we wanted and much more! We're going to miss our random questions to you and general chit chat too! Lucie, you really have been the best from start to finish and for that we can't thank you enough!!!

"The moment we approached Old Luxters Barn as a possible wedding venue we were blown away by the surroundings, space and the absolutely beautiful, unique detail of the venue, which has everything to offer. Our wedding planner Lucie communicated regularly throughout and her expertise meant a much more calm approach to the wedding than could have been wished for! Every detail planned from the delicious food to the layout of the barn and marquee was executed perfectly on what was an incredible day from start to finish. My husband and I can't thank Lucie & Camilla and the entire Old Luxters team enough for the hard work to make our day perfect."
Amy & David April 2017
"I just wanted to email to say thank you for everything you and the team at Old Luxters have done both during the planning of our wedding and on the wedding day. Everything was perfect from start to finish. Dave and I had the most fantastic day, as did all our guests. The venue looked beautiful, the waiting staff were lovely and the food was delicious. I'd also like to thank you personally for all your advice and support along the way."
Jess & Phil April 2017
"When we started looking at wedding venues we were immediately pulled to Luxters for how welcoming and relaxed it felt. We loved how open they were to bring our own ideas and menus to the day and actively encouraged us to make it as personal as we wanted. The regular communication with Lucie our wedding planner was excellent. She was always open to 'one more question' and nothing was any trouble, even the week of the wedding. James - our coordinator on the day was slick! He made sure food came out promptly and was served hot always. The guests commented on how delicious the food was and very generous portions too. Everything went smoothly and the staff were always friendly and accommodating looking after our guests. The venue is of course just stunning - we were blessed by a sunny spring day which really showed off the beauty of the Chiltern Valley. I would highly recommend Luxters for a personal, relaxed and beautiful venue. xx"

"Thank you to everyone at Old Luxters Barn that helped to make our reception absolutely perfect. From the minute that our guests arrived the staff were very attentive. The canapés were delicious and the service was very professional. Old Luxters was the perfect backdrop for our day - everyone has told us how beautiful the setting was and how nice the reception was - particularly the main meal! All the guests were served very quickly and the food was fabulous! We've also had many compliments about the DJ - he did a great job and played all the music we asked for, thank you!!!"

"Just a note to say a big thank you to you and your staff for all you did to make Jane and Andrews Wedding day such a very happy occasion. We really enjoyed the day and appreciated the informal atmosphere you created which was just what Jane and Andrew wanted. We are sure however that much careful and precise planning went into creating this illusion. We really appreciated the fact that you were present to oversee the day and that your staff served us so efficiently and unobtrusively. We know from talking to Jane how much you have helped them whilst they have been planning their wedding and we are very grateful for the guidance you gave them and for making a special day for our family so very memorable".

"We cannot say thank you enough for our wonderful wedding reception on 25th May. Everything was perfect - the food, the drinks, the music, the staff and the atmosphere. The venue looked beautiful when we arrived, and everyone was kept well-supplied with delicious drinks and canapés. The combination of the barn, courtyard, lawn and marquee was perfect for the sunny weather and things couldn't have gone more smoothly. You were fantastically helpful and organised throughout the planning process and we and our guests had a brilliant day!"
"Firstly I would like to thank you and all the staff at Luxters who made my 40th Birthday such a wonderful event. I had an amazing evening although it went so quickly! So many people have asked me about the venue for future parties so I am hoping you will get some more business from it. I would not hesitate to recommend Old Luxters Barn as a venue and also for the high levels of service. Many thanks again for such a wonderful event."
John and Deirdre 2016
"Yesterday was unbelievable - the most magical of ruby wedding celebrations. John and I just wanted to say the hugest thank you for all that you did in helping us to plan and prepare for this occasion. Everything surpassed all our wildest expectations; the barn looked so beautiful, the waiters and waitresses were smilingly and efficient, the canapés were absolutely delicious, the meal was superb and that pudding was definitely one to die for! Please would you pass on our thanks to Katie and all the team for looking after us so magnificently, and as for the weather...you obviously have very high level connections! John and I had the most memorable day and we could not have chosen a better venue to celebrate our special anniversary. With our thanks and every good wish from us both".
