Swallow Barn Weddings at Masson Farm

Today we shine the spotlight on one of our favourite Derbyshire Wedding Venues: Masson Farm and their gorgeous Swallow Barn. Tucked away in the hilltops of Matlock, Masson Farm is a truly beautiful spot just a five minute walk from the top of the Heights of Abraham cable car, with jaw-dropping views over Riber castle and the valley. A licensed rustic barn provides a fantastic ceremony space as well as a vintage bar and the perfect space for an outdoor Tipi reception and celebration set amongst beautiful wild gardens.

This unique Derbyshire venue is home to and meticulously managed by the lovely Denise Armin and without stealing her limelight, we’ll let her fill you in on the
many reasons to say your ‘I do’s’ here:

About us

Our first wedding was a family affair and so much fun we decided to do more! We at Masson Farm welcome you to share the natural beauty of our green hills, fields and wildflowers as you celebrate a wedding day that’s as unique and special as you are.

Our Venue

Masson Farm nestles in the rolling green hillsides near Matlock in Derbyshire.

Our secluded wedding venue provides a stunning backdrop of fields and woods full of wildflowers and birdsong and spectacular views across the valley. It’s our pleasure to welcome special couples to celebrate a limited number of weddings each year.

We guarantee only one wedding per weekend so you get our full attention.

Exchange your vows and promises in our old limestone converted barn, licensed for civil ceremonies. The vaulted ceiling and exposed timbers, decorated with hops, make for a natural and romantic setting.

Share your wedding day with a few close friends and family with a picnic on our lawns, or enjoy a celebration for hundreds with a banquet in a marquee or Tipi filled with magical fairy-lights.

Where else can you arrive by cable car and walk to your wedding venue through fields bordered with wild flowers?

There’s nothing standard about weddings at Masson Farm. It’s your day, so you choose what will make it one to remember.

Your wedding ceremony

The Swallow Barn, our lovely old limestone cow byre, can seat around 100 guests for your wedding ceremony. It’s a very romantic setting, with its high vaulted beams decorated with hops and can easily be adapted to suit your wedding theme.

Fill it with flowers, candles and use our archway decorated with your choice of blooms and foliage to frame your promises and photographs.

Of course, we always try to book a sunny day for your wedding, so that your guests can sit on our green lawns and watch your ceremony.

If music be the food of love…From the romance of a string quartet, to an elegant solo violin, or simply your favourite song, you choose the music that will set the scene for your special day.

Hold your reception party in Tipi’s or a marquee. They come in various sizes and can be decorated in the style and colours of your wedding theme.

The lawns bordered by wildflowers provide a natural backdrop for your photographs. And they’re a great spot for you and your guests to mingle, relax and enjoy a few drinks from the Swallow Bar, serving your choice of wine, champagne, real–‐ale, cocktails, tea and coffee.

Entertain your guests with garden games on the spacious lawns, learn some circus skills or chill out with luxury ice cream delivered by bike.

What stands us apart from other venues

I think it’s the completely personal wedding day we design with our couples that reflects who they are, why they are together and enables them to enjoy stress free planning and celebrations with their family and friends.

Highlights

It’s hard to choose just one highlight over and above the pleasure of watching the wedding ceremonies of the many couples with whom I have spent months and sometimes years in the planning but if I must chose a personal one for me was having the Supremes walk up my garden path!
