Other Services

Couples who choose Barnsley Resort for their celebration of love will be able to take part in a Southern tradition prior to their wedding day. This tradition is called "Burying the Bourbon" and it is meant to keep the weather from turning gloomy on your special day. Couples who wish to participate in this long-standing tradition will bury a wooden box, with a bottle of bourbon inside, at the venue. Then, on the night before the wedding, couples can dig up the beverage to share amongst their loved ones.

History

Barnsley Resort was created nearly 200 years ago by Godfrey Barnsley. He built it for his wife, Julia, who he married on Christmas Eve. The manor was originally called the Woodlands and it was inspired by the work of Andrew Jackson Downing.

    Barnsley is a dream come true. My husband and I got married there one week ago and it seriously couldn’t have been more perfect. The venue speaks for itself but the staff I just could rave about all day. Nora and Megan especially, thank you for all that you did for us leading up to our big day and on our big day. From the food tastings (best wedding food EVER btw), making sure my guests were all happy, upgrading me to my own cottage because you know I need my space and then running around with me on the day of... I can’t thank you enough. It was a day I’ll never forget and I’m honored that I get to go back to this place for years to come to relive the love and excitement that we felt that day.

    Just WOW! I can't say enough positive things about my experience with Barnsley for our recent wedding. The resort is just absolutely gorgeous, especially after all the recent renovations, and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful and fun weekend. The wedding staff went above and beyond and any time throughout the weekend that something wasn't absolutely perfect, they were so quick to accommodate and do whatever was needed to ensure our special day amazing. My husband and I enjoyed ourselves as much as the guests because we had nothing to worry about the entire weekend - they took care of it all. Wish we could do it all over again - we're already planning to go back for our first anniversary.
