    Intentional, flexible, positive, easy!

    Barn Up the Hill is beyond what I could have dreamed as our perfect wedding venue.
    Pam was amazing to work with as day of coordinator- she helped us dream up our ideal day and the flow of things, contacted our vendors to make sure the timeline ran smoothly, was available for meetings/phone calls whenever we had questions, and suggested incredible new options as we were reimagining our guest list from 90 people to 50 due to COVID. Pam was calm, kind, and a life-saver when navigating such an important day in our lives during an incredibly uncertain time.
    As the bride and groom, we totally trusted Pam to take charge of the day behind the scenes and make decisions - such as turning our “sunset toast” up on the hill into a “twilight toast” under the barn lights when there wasn’t a sunset that evening! She had the idea ready to go and just quickly checked in with us - it was amazing to feel so at ease and taken care of. Pam had back-up plans for our back-up plans!
    The venue itself is intimate and cozy. It feels like you are tucked away in your own little world for the day. Our guests raved about the relaxed nature of the day as the ceremony and reception were all in one location - they didn’t have to worry about moving pieces or timing.
    Barn Up the Hill’s extensive rental list has everything you could possibly need - it eliminated hours of market place hunting, DIYing, and saved us time and money.
    We had an incredible experience and would recommend this gem of a venue to anyone and everyone (and already have!!)

    Barn Up The Hill's reply:

    Thank you Hannah. We loved hosting your wedding here at Barn Up The Hill. You were amazing clients to work with and it was an honour to work with you both. You navigated planning a wedding through COVID with grace and calmness. May you have years of amazing memories when you think about your special day here at Barn Up The Hill.

    Magical Experience

    Our daughter had her wedding at Barn Up The Hill and it was a magical event. Everything went amazingly. It rained and because everything was in one place we could move the ceremony in and program out as the weather changed. From the beautiful view for the ceremony to the barn dance that then moved to a sunset dance under the stars...it was magical. The Barn up the hill team were so amazing and helped make the whole weekend beyond special.

    Overbearing hosts live on site and hover.

    the hosts live on the venue and constantly hovered over the event and threatened to shut the wedding down or fine people for noise or having a drink in their hand. poor customer service.

    Barn Up The Hill's reply:

    Our packages provide an Event Manager or a Day of Coordinator so our team is around at all events. However, we have not had an event where the event was threatened to be shut down for noise or guests having a drink in their hand. If event policies, bylaw, or BC Health regulations are not being met we do provide information and sometimes a warning for all involved. Unfortunately sometimes hosts and/or guests choose to be non compliant or cause a difficult interaction. It is unfortunate that you have chosen to air unfounded accusations without sharing your concerns directly with us. Since we have not had a groom named Joel, I can only assume you are posting anonymously.

    They have no concept of hospitality!!!

    We felt unwelcome! Do not choose this vendor! I was a guest and did not feel comfortable with the constant nit picking about everything.

    Barn Up The Hill's reply:

    It is unfortunate you felt that way when so many guests at this wedding kept thanking us for the amazing service and apologizing for the behaviour and treatment we were receiving from the host family. We appreciated so much the support and encouragement from the family members and friends who saw the difficulty being caused. As a "guest" you would not have been aware of the very difficult position our clients, your hosts, put our venue in by breaking multiple BC Health regulations, bylaw regulations and our property policies that went directly against their contract with us. Let alone the verbal abuse, threats and damage that was done to our property such as holes in the Bridal Suite wall and alcohol poured all over the carpets and floors. What you call "nitpicking" was our attempt to maintain the requirements to have a safe gathering and ensure our business, staff and future weddings were not put at risk. It was most unfortunate that compliance was such a huge challenge at this wedding event and it had to be managed for not only my staff but property and business sake.

    A beautiful wedding venue and a pleasure to work with Pam and Paul!

    Pam and Paul have a wonderfully beautiful wedding venue! They are delightful and easy to work with. They listen well, offer great suggestions, are very helpful, and pay attention to details. They are improving on their venue all the time and are flexible in what they offer. It was an amazing day for our daughter and new son-in-law to celebrate at Barn Up The Hill with family and friends and Pam and Paul went above and beyond to make it so. Thank you!!

    Far exceeded anything I could have dreamed of!

    Choosing this wedding venue was the absolute BEST decision. Barn up the Hill is a breathtaking venue--it was exactly how I always dreamed my wedding would be: very boho, in nature, and simple but so beautiful. The property and barn so exceeded my expectations as Pam and Paul have been making great improvements in the past months. They went above and beyond in helping me make the day absolutely perfect. They are lovely people to interact with, quick to respond to messages and keen to help solve any issues. I highly recommend this venue!
