What the award means to us

Caroline and Steve are thrilled at winning the Bridebook Award for UK Barn Venue of 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 deliver. This year is the first time we have entered any awards, and we are thrilled that we have been recognised as a tiny independent venue 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 five years. They hope this award will help promote the business to a broader audience and send out a message to all smaller companies 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, all yet to celebrate their big day, and all of our hard-working and loyal suppliers that have supported Cote How in winning this fabulous award.
