The Barns at Redcoats

"The perfect rural destination for your wedding, conference or event"

The Barns at Redcoats is a wonderful venue for a wedding. Situated in the hamlet of Redcoats Green, Hertfordshire; Redcoats dates back to the 15th century and boasts 4 acres with stunning views across the rolling Hertfordshire countryside. My wife and I liked it so much that we even got married there ourselves!

The Sam Lewis Band is one of Hertfordshire's busiest wedding and party bands performing at 50-100 weddings per year. We have worked closely with Redcoats for a few years now, performing at various different functions here and at their numerous other sites including Hermitage Road in Hitchin.



Our ALL-DAY music solution is perfect for weddings and features live music throughout the day. It means you can sit back and relax right from the point of booking us knowing all of the entertainment at Redcoats for the day is arranged.

Redcoats Wedding Review...

Sam and his band played at our wedding last year and provided amazing entertainment! He was very helpful and flexible with all our requests and kept our guests on their feet all night! I can’t thank him and his team enough for making our wedding such an awesome experience! We highly recommend him and hope to use him again for a future event.

It's important to book the right suppliers for the job. Preferred or recommended suppliers are usually selected by the venue as their respective brands work well together. For example; A photographer that has experience of a venue will know where to go for the best light, settings and backdrops come rain or shine. A preferred band, musician or DJ (did I mention that we're all three?) will know when to arrive, where and when to set up, whether the venue has a noise limiter and who the wedding coordinator is etc.

The combination of suppliers that know each other is often overlooked yet can make a huge difference to your big day. It's just the same as any kind of team. Most wedding suppliers will also recommend others that they rate particularly highly and enjoy working with. Communication between suppliers and the venue beforehand and on the day makes a big difference too. Familiarity helps and collaboration is the key!


Our favourite Hertfordshire photographer for The Barns at Redcoats is Rafe Abrook of Rafe Abrook Photography. He goes the extra mile snapping the party shots late into the evening and capturing your guest's reactions when they're being wowed by the entertainment! Just check out some of his shots of local magician Lee Smith.
