The venue has several options available; an onsite registry office for smaller weddings, and an outdoor pavilion and multiple internal rooms that can be used for the service. All of these are wonderfully well thought out and naturally lend themselves to our style of photography.
The main advantage of this venue is the layout; a large dining room with its high ceiling is lit by massive bay windows and sits adjacent to the bar, as does a similar ceremony room opposite. These 3 rooms all back onto the rear terrace and the sandstone arches that lead down to a gravelled area, where guests can catch the sunshine.

In the secluded setting of the Surrey Hills just outside of Guildford, Gate Street Barn is a truly magnificent place to get married. This barn feels much older than others we’ve listed and has more of an authentic rustic feel due to the darker exposed oak beams.
