Q. We want an exclusive-use Wiltshire wedding venue that offers a sustainable option for our eco-friendly wedding. Where can you suggest?

A. Joseph & Isabella Wookey says: The interiors inside Chalk Barn are stunning, offering an organic feel and a natural style, setting the perfect background reflecting the surroundings. Simple yet sophisticated, it's a wonderful backdrop to any event ranging from a rustic-inspired wedding to a contemporary celebration. The floor-to-ceiling windows frame views across the infinity lawn stretching for miles and the garden is landscaped to create spaces that allow guests to enjoy the natural Wiltshire wildlife.

Wildflowers in abundance encourage a variety of biodiversity to make the surroundings rich with life, whilst also providing alternative spaces for photos and food trucks. The venue is sustainable with the water, heating and electricity all produced on-site.

Ceremonies take place outside under the arbour or in the main area of the barn offering far-flung views of the Pewsey Vale for up to 150 guests, while receptions take place on the infinity lawn or in the main barn.

Couples receive a complimentary menu tasting if they book a wedding at the barn. They also have the option to stay in The Hide on their wedding night which is secluded in woodland boasting views of the lake. The romantic hut features a king-size bed, free-standing copper bath, wood burner and a continental breakfast is provided.
