    'We had the most perfect day for our wedding at Harefield Barn. Deborah and Robert were so helpful right from the moment we booked the barn, answering any queries and helping us with all our decisions to help bring the whole day together. They were also on hand to help things run smoothly on the big day. Harefield is the perfect wedding venue offering complete flexibility and a beautiful backdrop, it really was the best day of our lives.' Thank you, Laura & George x
