Shustoke Farm Barns is a rustic wedding venue set in the rural heart of Coleshill, Warwickshire. This 18th-century red brick barn has been transformed into a spectacular event centre by Cripps & Co. The barn is located within 20 minutes from the Birmingham and Coventry city centres, making it convenient for guests travelling from near and far.

Facilities and Capacity

The main event space at Shustoke Farm Barns is transformed for each element of the day, from a candlelit ceremony to after-dinner dancing. An elevated timber ceiling soars over flagstone floors, with huge oak beams and eye-catching glass detail. The gallery offers views of the copper-topped bar and open kitchen, where guests can observe the chefs at work through a large glass wall. A state-of-the-art lighting system allows you to illuminate the room with fairy and candle lights throughout the day. Spotlighting can be used on dinner tables for your reception, while colour-changing LEDs are available to brighten up the dance floor in the evening. Expansive gothic timber and glass arched doors open out from the barn into a courtyard, where guests can socialize amongst ancient olive trees. They can keep warm around glowing fire pits and watch chefs cook up a feast on a giant outdoor barbecue. The barn can accommodate 140 guests for a ceremony and banquet and 200 for dancing, including 60 additional evening guests.

The on-site team at Shustoke Farm Barns strives to provide exceptional service, helping with everything from the big ideas to the last-minute details. The barn is licensed for civil ceremonies, allowing you to host your entire wedding at this venue. You and your guests can look forward to delicious rotisserie cuisine and barbecued dishes prepared with care by the expert culinary team. The barn is licenced for music and bar services until 1 a.m., allowing you to make the most of your celebration. Parking and wheelchair-accessible facilities are also available for your convenience.

Ceremony, Drinks and Meal

Today we were here to provide music for Holly and Lee’s Wedding ceremony followed by the drinks reception and wedding meal.

We set up at the rear of the ceremony room which was draped in gorgeous flowers with a beautiful LOVE sign at the rear of the room.

Pre Ceremony
Africa (Toto)
Angels (Robbie Williams)
Can You Feel The Love Tonight (Elton John
Yellow (Coldplay)
Chasing Cars (Snow Patrol)

Bridal Entrance
Can’t Help Falling in Love – Canon in D

Shallow (A Star is Born). Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper
Love Of My Life (Queen)

Starlight (Muse)

Holly had chosen one of our blends for her bridal entrance where we played Can’t Help Falling in Love for the entrance of the bridesmaids, seamlessly changing into Canon in D for the moment Holly walked up the aisle.

Given the amount of guests and available space, it made sense for us to stay in the same position throughout the drinks reception and the wedding breakfast. This did mean we were behind a curtain for the drinks but the only alternative was in the entrance area where a lot of photographs were being taken. And so we would have in fact been completely in the way!

As it was just a curtain being drawn and the rest of the building was open we could certainly be heard throughout the venue and so the option of remaining in one place made a lot of sense.

This also means the couple and their guests get more music. Generally speaking we take very few if any breaks certainly if we are just playing for ceremony and drinks. And then even with the meal we never stop during the meal but instead continue until the point desert is served without a break.

We really enjoyed being a part of Holly and Lee’s wedding and we wish them every happiness as they embark on their future life as husband and wife.
