The Bradford Barn’s unique two-story structure affords an alternate indoor area for ceremonies in the event of inclement weather. So, in the case of totally crappy weather, the barn does not have to be “flipped” from your ceremony to the reception. This ensures a smooth transition into the reception and last-minute decisions can easily be made. Rain or shine we have you covered!
Bradford Barn only hosts one event per day, so, our price structure remains the same whether you only hold your reception, or both the ceremony and reception onsite.
Yes. We are fur baby friendly! Your four-legged family members are allowed to share in your ceremony and photos with you. We do, however, have our own furry children to consider as the farm is their home. We kindly ask that you make arrangements to have your pet safely and considerately cared for and removed from the property after your ceremony. Dogs must be on a leash and someone, other than the bride and groom, must be responsible for them. Under no circumstances will any pet be allowed to be held or contained in a vehicle on the property.
Our preferred form of payment is cash, check or e-mail transfer.
We have it all photographed and numbered on our inventory page.
You will have access to the venue at the time listed on your contract (10 am) and in some circumstances at the time of your rehearsal.
Yes. In addition to our Bradford Barn staff, we now have a Wedding Planner specifically to meet your needs leading up to and on your wedding day. Our ultimate goal is to seamlessly execute all the wedding details and maintain the flow of events so you don’t have to. We aim to ensure that your wedding day unfolds the way you had envisioned.
- Smoking at the fire pit only. Why? For obvious reasons.
- No Stiletto heels on the property or in the barn. Why? The barn is situated on grass and gravel which your ankles nor your Jimmy Choos will appreciate. The slotted decking is a massive safety concern as are all the stairs both to and from the barn and washroom trailer. If you or your guests choose to wear stilettos they will be asked to remove them. Sorry not sorry.
- Shots will only be served in the presence of the bride or groom and at the sole discretion of the bartender. Yes, we know that it is your alcohol that we are serving, however, we are responsible for serving it responsibly.
Our open house events are designed for anyone looking for a fun night and enjoy some great live entertainment, bonfire, the occasional food truck and cocktails. If we have already had the pleasure of meeting you, our Open House Parties are a great way for you to get an idea of how your event will come together. Open house dates and the RSVP form can be found here.
We suggest ceremony start times commence between 3:30pm and 4:30pm to allow adequate time for pictures and cocktails.
Yes. A rehearsal is available to you the week prior to your function. We kindly ask that all vehicles are parked in the designated parking lot and not in the main driveway. This not a rehearsal PARTY so no alcohol is to be consumed.

The farm is a private residence. Please arrange all drop offs and pickups directly through our in-house Wedding Planner.

Bradford Barn staff will handle all standard clean up and trash removal throughout and following the wedding reception. We kindly ask that you take all personal decor with you unless you plan to re-purpose it to future guests of the barn.
Sure! Just ask us and we would be happy to make recommendations.
At the end of the day it’s a barn. We are cool with push pins and tape. If you plan any massive remodeling with nails or screws please check in with management.
