After getting engaged, Jan and Gary were on the hunt for their perfect wedding venue, one that would provide them with a relaxed and fun atmosphere and which could cater for every aspect of their day so that the party never had to stop. They saw Mythe Barn, a breathtaking barn venue in Leicestershire, and knew it was just the place for an unforgettable celebration.
“We loved Mythe Barn as it’s a real one-stop shop – beautiful ceremony settings, amazing food, entertainment and accommodation, along with excellent service, all in one place,” says Jan.
Mythe Barn’s rural location gives it a wonderfully laid-back and country feel, so the happy couple decided to work with it and incorporate a theme of herbs and nature into their day. They took a hands-on approach to their decorations and made them all themselves. With zinc planters holding a different herb for each table, hand-made name tags and menu cards, colourful bunting and bunches of fresh lavender, the interior of Mythe Barn had a charming natural feel to it throughout the day.
The Galloping Gourmet chefs at Mythe Barn can help you create the perfect menu to suit your special day and offer a range of menus from casual dishes to five-course fine dining feasts that will wow your guests.
After saying ‘I do’ in the enchanting Oak Barn, Jan and Gary celebrated with gin and elderflower cocktails and mocktails and drum of ice -cold beers, while exquisite canapés including wild mushroom tartlets, crispy risotto balls and smoked salmon blinis were served.
The light-filled Grain Store provided a stunning setting for the couple’s wedding breakfast and Jan and Gary treated their loved ones to a warm tartlet of lobster and king prawns to start, a sharing board of roast fore rib of beef and plenty of accompaniments for the main course and a trio of delicious desserts to wrap it all up. The sharing board was definitely the right choice for their fun wedding, with one person from each table provided with an apron and chef’s hat and designated as the carver.

When the evening reception began, the fantastic wedding food continued! The Galloping Gourmet chefs fired up the barbecue in the courtyard, which was the perfect choice for their summer celebration, while a popcorn machine offered a sweet treat for guests young and old.
One of the many benefits of having a wedding at Mythe Barn is having the support of the Galloping Gourmet Events Team throughout your planning as well as on the day. Jan and Gary experienced this first hand as soon as they booked their wedding date.
“The catering and Events Team were amazing!” says Jan. They delivered top quality food and provided the best organisation and coordination to make sure our wedding day went completely to plan. It wouldn’t have been the same without them.”
