What the award means to us
Caroline and Steve are absolutely thrilled at winning the Bridebook Award for UK Barn Venue of the year 2019. Caroline says, "We see this award as industry recognition for the many days and long hours of hard work and dedication in providing our lovely wedding couples with the best wedding we can possibly deliver. This year is the first time that we have entered any awards and are thrilled that as a very small independent venue we have been recognised for our efforts."
They see the award as a celebration of the many happy couples that have held their wedding at Cote How over the last 5 years. They hope that this award will help to promote the business to a wider audience and send out a message to all smaller businesses that with a lot of effort and determination it is possible to offer couples an unforgettable wedding experience.
Caroline and Steve would like to thank the many clients, friends and family who have had their weddings here, plus all those yet to celebrate their big day, plus all of our hard-working and loyal suppliers that have supported Cote How in winning this fabulous award.
