Wedding Llamas at Tythe Barn wedding venue Bicester Oxfordshire

The Tythe Barn is an award-winning wedding venue in Oxfordshire, comprising a cluster of beautifully restored barns alongside a 17th century boutique Farmhouse. Tythe is one of the most impressive wedding barns in the country: elegantly rural, undeniably fun, this exclusive estate is set on the working farm of the Deeley family in rural Bicester.

Relaxed and informal, yet well-known for its incredible attention to detail. This charming venue brings together the beautifully restored thatched Tythe Barn (dating back to 1370), adjoining Cowshed with its old terracotta roof, luxury dressing room (fondly referred to as The Nook), the stunning interior-designed Manor Farmhouse offering seven double en-suite bedrooms and the cosy Shepherd’s Hut which sleeps an additional two.

Tythe can be hired exclusively for two nights and offers everything on site: licensed for both indoor and outdoor ceremonies with the flexibility to adapt to both small or larger wedding parties, dedicated rooms for the groom and the bride to get ready in and accommodation for 16 guests – including tea and cake and a farmhouse supper for residents as well as breakfast on both mornings.

A Barn Wedding Venue in Oxfordshire

Tythe are known for going above and beyond, and the comprehensive list of what they include within their venue hire is testament to this. From the Champagne Bar, hot tub and tennis court at The Farmhouse to the outdoor wood-burners, a Land Rover offering pre-ceremony drinks and an abundance of fairy lights scattered throughout both the indoors and outdoors, this is a venue that boasts more than 25 years of experience planning and hosting weddings.

Quintessentially English and run by a devoted team who are proud owners of multiple awards for their customer service, Tythe has mastered the art of planning weddings whilst lovingly guiding couples through the process. A delightfully English setting that is simple, honest and maintains an understated elegance – be part of their story.

The venue is absolute luxury. The attention to detail is immaculate and Tori the wedding coordinator managed absolutely everything whilst always remaining calm with a smile on her face. My suppliers commented on her professionalism and helpfulness.

E & A

The response I have got from everyone who attended was it was the best wedding they have ever been to. From the wow factor of the barn itself, the surroundings, the nearby church, the food and drink, it comes together perfectly. We have been told that if Disney were to make the idyllic wedding venue…this would be it. The staff including Tori and Joe on the lead up and day were just incredible and they are both friendly and professional people who make your wedding day so enjoyable. We can’t thank Tythe enough for all their support and creating such a beautiful setting to get married.

The whole team at The Tythe Barn are amazing. They are kind, accommodating and are experts in Weddings. The whole process from start to finish was amazing. Tina was our coordinator on the day and she was extremely professional and helpful, everything looked perfect and she helped to make what we wanted for our wedding a reality and captured everything we asked for. The staff were friendly and happy and nothing was too much trouble! The whole team helped make our day everything we could have hoped for!

They may have done hundreds of weddings, but on your day, yours is the most important.

E & J

We fell in love with The Tythe Barn the moment we set foot in it. This is a venue that has been established and built on passion, love and attention to detail, and this was absolutely borne out over the course of our wedding experience. When you pick a venue, you imagine how your day will go and how it will look. Every dream we had for our wedding day was realised, and every hope we had was either met or, more likely, surpassed. We will forever be grateful for Will, Emma, Tina and the team for delivering a wedding day that we will never forget.

L & F

Our wedding day was the best day of our whole lives and so much of that was down to all the staff. The Tythe Barn is such a special, special venue and everyone was blown away by it. The grounds are stunning, it makes for such a beautiful, romantic ceremony and turns into an incredible nightclub in the evening! You get the best of everything at Tythe. The staff are all so kind, helpful and passionate about what they do - they make you feel so special and take all the stress away. I can’t thank you all enough, our wedding day is everything we dreamed of and more. I would recommend getting married here to anyone, I wish I could rewind and do it all again!

J & J

We had the best day at The Tythe Barn and are so glad we picked it for a venue. As well as it being a beautiful space, on the day Tina made sure it all ran totally seamlessly and we didn’t have to do anything or worry about a thing. Having a space and such an experienced team who could guide us and let the day run, meant we felt totally relaxed and it just made the day and evening so much more enjoyable - it really was just the perfect day.
