Old Luxters Barn :-
Set deep in the Chiltern Valley amidst rolling hills, Old Luxters 17th Century Barn is the perfect setting for your special day.
Sympathetically converted, Luxters retains many of its original features and charm with the added benefit of real wood flooring, heating, disabled facilities and good ventilation. Available for your exclusive use, we can comfortably seat between 30 and 100 guests at round tables. If you were having a band play, capacity would be reduced to 90 guests at round tables to enable us to maintain the highest service quality for all guests. Our DJ is located in the Gallery so does not affect floor space. For larger parties or events where you would like to provide a separate area we also have a lawn which is ideal for a marquee.
Our core business arranging weddings and private parties began in 1999.Over this time we have built up an extensive knowledge base of expertise, to which you can only benefit. Our reputation is exceptional and we are currently one of Chiltern Hill's most popular venues for civil ceremonies of all types.
GARTER AND BRIDAL BOUQUET TOSS
In parts of Europe during the 14th contrary, having a piece of the bride's clothing was thought to bring good luck. Guests would literally destroy the brides dress by ripping off pieces of fabric. In order to prevent this, brides began throwing various items to the guests - the garter belt being one of the items.In order to avoid this problem, it became customary in the 14th century for the bride to toss her garter to the men. Sometimes the men would get drunk, become impatient, and try to remove the garter ahead of time. Therefore, the custom evolved for the groom to remove and toss the garter. With that change the bride started to toss the bridal bouquet to the unwed girls of marriageable age. Tradition says that whoever catches the bouquet shall be the next to marry. She keeps the bouquet to ensure this destiny.
