    Shaky Start, Superb Finish

    Read the reviews anywhere, and you'll read that there are issues with booking this venue. It would be a lie to say it's not true - there were issues. However, the flexibility and overall experience did justify booking this venue.

    Experience!

    the barn was absolutely stunning. I did add alot of decor to make it a bit more glam but the grounds themselves are stunning and everyone was freaking out over the venue. Jenn was very flexible in allowing me to do what I wanted and gave me some great vendor recommendations. The caterer they use there is also fabulous, so need to worry about food quality. I felt everything ran super smoothly the day of and I didn't need to worry or deal with anything. I am so happy i went with this venue in comparison to a traditional hall, I felt those are a bit boring and repetitive so having something so different really made an impression on my guests

    Amazing Venue

    The Bradford barn is an amazing place to get married, every single guest loved the place! The thing that drew us into booking the barn for our wedding was that everything was on the same property bridal suite/man cave, ceremony, cocktail hour, many many places for beautiful photos, reception and party.

    Truly a magical venue

    Everything about The Bradford Barn is amazing. Jenn was absolutely incredible in putting everything together and making sure we had a beautiful day. The Bradford Barn team is professional and goes above and beyond. Cindy our bartender was outstanding. She learned our drinks and was so easy going and fun! Cibo the preferred caterer are hands down the kindest people we have met. They went above and beyond by including our guests with allergies and everyone( even a week later) is still raving about our food! The Bradford Barn has something so special about it. The Barn, Gazebo, Landscapes... there is not just one thing that makes this venue so wonderful. The house band put on such an energy filled show. The vocals were insane. Rueben our DJ was hilarious ! He was so easy to get along with, very understanding and made things so easy for us. Between Rueben and the band the dance floor was always full! Our wedding at The Bradford Barn was truly the best day our of lives. Thank you for creating such magic.

    A Perfect day

    We loved the venue and the staff! The band and DJ were amazing, a great balance for the night. Everything was easy to set up with their vendors and on site table decorations. A beautiful place for an outdoor wedding. Right before our ceremony a storm was about to roll in and Jenn and her staff were running around to make sure we were prepared for any last minute changes for the rain. She was flexible and attentive to detail.

    Best value in Ontario

    Jenn is the nicest, most pleasant and professional person I’ve dealt with in the wedding industry. What their package includes is nothing short of amazing for the price. It’s great value and service in a beautiful surrounding. They make you feel like family. Highly recommended!

    One HAPPY couple!!

    The Bradford Barn made our day perfect from start to finish. The venue creates such a relaxed atmosphere from the lawn games to the outdoor bar and finishes with a bonfire throughout the night. Jenn and her staff were more than wonderful and even if something did go wrong on our wedding day we did not notice which is the sign of some exceptional customer service. The feedback we have been getting from our guests have been, "the best wedding they have ever been too", "so much fun right from start"

    The highlights for us.. ceremony with surrounding trees, Glenn Eagle our officiant was BEYOND amazing and made us feel super comfortable, CIBO Catering did an incredible job and everyone loved the food, the house band blew everyone away and creates an atmosphere inside the barn that gets everyone up off their feet, there are so many places to get great pictures because the barn and the landscape surrounding is so beautiful just on its own and most importantly you get the ENTIRE place just for you and your guests which creates such an intimate experience.

    The Bradford Barn will always hold a special place in our hearts and we are so grateful to them for starting our married life on the right track.. one very happy couple!!!

    Mr. & Mrs. Irwin xoxo

    We got married at the Bradford Barn on 09/July/2017 and it was a truly amazing experience. Jennifer and Joran did an amazing job and allowed for me to have my dream wedding; both were very professional and patient throughout the entire experience. The venue site was an absolutely gorgeous property, with fields of corn and a rustic farm, and even an outdoor bar. They even provided fun outdoor games that our guests loved and played while waiting for dinner and following a bonfire that everyone enjoyed. Our ceremony was outside and even though it rained it made for a wonderful experience. The owner and staff were fantastic to work with, providing timely replies throughout our event planning, and on the day of were nothing short of extraordinary to make sure the day ran smoothly. The wedding day went by without a hitch. Being a new venue we had the wonderful opportunity to see the venue grow and become even more amazing than what we had envisioned when we first stepped on to the property. Custom Catering provided an incredible meal and all of the staff were professional, friendly and very polite. All of our guests raved about how amazing the food was, including the fantastic cake they made. The band “ Dean James and the Heartbreak Hillbillies” was on time, professional and full of energy, and were able to play any song requested and if they didn’t know it they were eager to try and learn on the go. They played live music for us all night and the dance floor was never empty! We would highly recommend this venue for future wedding use.

    Bradford Barn's reply:

    Hi Anna,
    Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review and for all of your positive feedback and remarks. You and Cody were an absolute pleasure to work with and the Bradford Barn was thrilled to be a part of your special day! Wishing you both the best of health and happiness together in what I am sure will be a very bright future! Cheers😁

    From the moment we drove up the driveway, the Bradford Barn venue had this indescribable charm, I can't even put it into words. Without checking out other venues, we knew right away this was it. Everything from the farmhouse to take pictures beside, the ceremony lawn under all the trees, the stunning bridal suite on site, the outdoor bar for cocktail hour, the live music that our guests couldn't get enough of, the bonfire pit for our guests to take a very short break from dancing and so much more. This venue was more than anything we could have dreamed of. We can't thank the Bradford Barn staff enough for all their help in making our day perfect. Jenn and Joran both were extremely accommodating, patient and helpful throughout our whole planning process. And to top it all off, we were fortunate enough to have incredible weather. We would highly recommend The Bradford Barn to anyone who is looking for that rustic, country, vintage type of look with a hint of true elegance.

    Tired venue and unprofessional family

    The issues I had with the Bradford Barn were around communication and professionalism. To provide context let me be up-front about loosing $5000.
    I visited the Barn in winter before COVID and then again in June, when I saw how run down things are. By that time I had already paid the $2000 deposit, which I get is non-refundable, but they also kept the $3000 paid early March before social distancing/isolation.
    Brides beware of force majeure. Act of God clause; not even a good lawyer can help there. To be fair they did offer postponement to do a Friday or Sunday rather than a Saturday. I was also getting concerned about additional costs after talking to other couples who were married here. The dj must be paid additionally for ceremony music, the rental cost indicated on the website is low, as are other things. After so many red flags and unanswered emails/phone calls, I didn't want to continue taking the risk of working with the Bradford Barn. My communications with Jen were negative and unprofessional. The only time, she was timely, was when she wanted me to commit to an alternate wedding date. Joran did the tours and seemed like he just rolled out of bed. I was desperate and made decisions I regret.
    Do yourself a favour, always seek out impartial references, if you can. Local vendors such as hair stylists, florists or photographers are in the know.
    I hear attending a wedding at Bradford Barn as guest is a blast, but I have connected with previous brides and current ones who describe many challenges. Surprisingly there are many good reviews of the Barn and working with Jen so it make your own choice.

    Bradford Barn's reply:

    I am sorry to hear that you didn’t feel supported leading up to your wedding day. We take your wedding day and our reputation very seriously. The months leading up to your wedding we had tried communicating with you to work on sorting through and finalizing your wedding details and helping navigate through the impact of covid19 by offering alternate wedding dates for the current season 2020. Further deposits were deferred even though a back up date of Saturday September 5, 2020 was reserved as an alternate to the original reserved dare of Saturday August 1, 2020. Scaled down budget friendly options were also offered to avoid any additional monies to be owed. A backup Friday date in 2021 was also offered. Unfortunately, our inventory of dates was limited as we tend to book more than a year in advance, and Saturdays are typically the first to be booked. The pandemic has been a challenge for everyone and it is sad to hear how the added stress has impacted yours and all of our couples’ wedding plans this year. We appreciate your feedback concerning our communication process as we strive to provide the best possible service to our couples before and on the wedding day by being as transparent as possible when it comes to pricing, and wedding logistics so we are sorry to learn that you felt we didn’t meet your expectations. Please note your $5000 deposit can be applied to a future date at anytime.
