The Flying Fish Wedding Barn

Enjoy an unforgettable wedding day here with us at the Flying Fish, in our beautiful barn – a traditional family-run venue situated amid stunning South Somerset Countryside, yet just 5 minutes from the A303 and 10 minutes from the M5.

Our barn is full of character and charm but don’t be fooled by its rustic exterior… it is packed to the beams with all mod-cons including its own bar, toilets, PA system, disco lighting, stage, fairy light backdrop, bunting and fairy light canopy, candelabras, beautiful chiavari chairs and rustic farm-style tables.  Our wedding barn also has its own gorgeous private garden with a gazebo, flower arch uplit tree and plenty of seating.

The Flying Fish Barn is fully licensed for marriage ceremonies and makes the most amazing rural wedding venue.  We specialise in relaxed, informal weddings and work closely with you to help you create the wedding you want, be it a traditional country affair with straw bales and a tractor or a Caribbean theme with a steel band and delicious home-made Rum Punch… the barn is a blank canvas for you to make your own.
We also offer a variety of food options including sumptuous hot, cold and mixed buffets, hog roasts and Caribbean food or you can hire the barn on a ‘dry hire’ basis and use your own caterer if you prefer.
We also have 8 very spacious en-suite rooms in our stable block next to the barn for your close friends and family and can recommend additional accommodation in the local area for your other guests.
