Hidden River Barn Wedding Photography

Hidden River Barn emerges as an enchanting new wedding and event destination nestled within the serene embrace of Hidden River Cabins. Overlooking the majestic River Lyne, the venue is a beacon of luxury amid ancient woodlands and vibrant wildlife, offering a picturesque backdrop through its luxurious log cabins and historic properties.

Hidden River Barn invites couples seeking an unparalleled venue for their weddings. Secluded in the lush Cumbrian countryside, close to the scenic Lake District, this barn offers a sanctuary of privacy on a sprawling estate. Encircled by ancient woods and a rich tapestry of wildlife, it provides an idyllic setting for photography, fishing, and strolls along private riverbanks.

Designed to welcome groups ranging from 50 to 250 guests, Hidden River Barn boasts versatility across all seasons. Whether envisioning a spring wedding amidst bluebells, a sun-drenched summer affair, or a cosy celebration in autumn or winter.

Get in Touch

The story of Hidden River Cabins began in 2011 when Rob and Rachel embarked on a journey to share a lesser-known, picturesque part of the world by offering large, authentic log cabins as a retreat for those looking to take a break from their hectic lives.

Since the completion of their first log cabin, they have continuously sought to innovate and expand, leading to the creation of the Hidden River Café, Hidden River Barn & Hidden River House.

From the beginning, their mission, supported by an experienced team, was to offer exceptional customer service and maintain high standards across all aspects of their business. This dedication has allowed Hidden River Cabins to evolve into a unique and successful wedding venue.

Hidden River Cabin Civil Partnership

October 9, 2020

Hidden River has several ceremony spaces and can cater for all sizes of wedding days. I have photographed small elopements where couples have booked out a cabin for themselves and had registers come to do the legal paperwork with an intimate ceremony.

I have also photographed weddings where families have booked out several luxury log cabins with a ceremony outside on the deck of a cabin and later a party at the Hidden River Cafe for 40 or so people.

The barn, however, is huge and can easily accommodate up to 250 people! It's a unique wedding venue, and most ceremonies take place on the mezzanine level overlooking the ancient woodland and the River Lyne.
