Barker House are the Wedding EXPERTS!

I booked the Barker Tavern in October 2022 shortly after I got engaged and was so excited as it was near the beach, that I spent my Summers with family. A few months later we got notified that the Barker Tavern had been bought out and it has now become the "Barker House" by Wedgewood Weddings. My fiancé and I were nervous at first, but not for long as Andrew was there to make it all work out.

Andrew, the general manager, made the entire transition seamless. He assured all construction/renovations would be better than before (and THAT THEY WERE!) and that he was not willing to change a thing for what we had originally envisioned with Barker Tavern, in fact-- went above and beyond to make it better then we even imagined. Andrew really listened, and delivered. You can tell Andrew has been working in this industry for years because he really knows his stuff!

When Camryn, our coordinator came into the picture, we knew we were in good hands. Camryn was so communicative leading up to the day of and made us feel so wonderful. When it came down to our wedding day, Camryn really ran a tight ship in terms of the timeline so that she had all the vendors working together but was so calm and collected the whole time. The ENTIRE day was smooth, and stress free. My husband and I don't drink so Camryn made sure that we had our mocktail's of choice all night, and also put in the bridal & groom suite which was such a beautiful detail that we were SO appreciative of! Camryn made set up also so easy - I Brought all my boxes in and she set everything up just how I wanted -- and then Paula and Kylie also did such a spectacular job setting up the furniture and cocktail hour that everyone was raving about it all night!

Paula really was the icing on the cake. We have worked in the industry for 15+ years and have never met such a thorough, and kind banquet captain. We absolutely loved Paula and how she managed all of her servers and staff - Kylie, Jessica, Patricia, John, Tim, and Dennis -- you guys are rockstars and some of the speediest servers I've ever seen in the industry! Big shout out to the kitchen stars, Chef Marc - people could NOT stop talking about the Mac N cheese balls, bacon wrapped scallops & the entrees were to DIE for! Everyone wanted containers to take leftovers home -- Chef Marc really knows how to deliver for a wedding and with great quality!

We really just wish we could relive our wedding weekend again and again and thats all because of Camryn, Andrew & the team at Wedgewood Weddings. The venue, the vibes, the class, the kindness -- all of the it was there.

We believe everything happened for a reason and we were supposed to have our wedding planned by Wedgewood. If you're looking for the best experience possible, it's the Barker House by Wedgewood Weddings - WITHOUT A DOUBT!

The Barker Tavern- 100 Stars :)

I'll never be able to fully articulate how amazing and The Barker Tavern is!! Becky and her team were warm, fun, and so organized. Our wedding was postponed twice due to Covid, but Becky and her team remained a calm and constant presence. We loved the experience so much we ended up hosting the wedding shower there too! The Barker delivered on both a smaller more intimate shower and a larger full blown celebration. Our wedding was beyond what we could have ever imagined, and so worth the wait. Largely because of The Barker Tavern. Highly, highly recommend!!

NYE Wedding at the Barker

Our New Year’s Eve wedding at The Barker Tavern was everything I had hoped and more. Becky and her team went above and beyond to make this day special, memorable and fun for all! From the first meeting to the midnight toast every little detail was perfection. The team made sure the wedding party was treated like royalty. Our parents said that someone was always asking if there was anything needed. The answer was always no because they had already been a step ahead, and all was executed flawlessly. The room was beautifully decorated, and all guest raved about the food. The passed appetizers were excellent, and the meals were all perfectly presented and delicious. We are so glad we chose The Barker Tavern for our wedding reception. We can’t wait to celebrate other special occasions there. Thank you, Becky and team, for treating us like family…we will see you at the restaurant soon!
