Fern Hill Barn Wedding Venue

Fern Hill Barn by Wedgewood Weddings – Spencer MA

(Formally Zukas Hilltop Barn)


Planning a Fern Hill Barn Wedding?

(2023 update) – Zukas Hilltop Barn is now Fern Hill Barn by Wedgewood Weddings. I will update this post as more information becomes available.


A Fern Hill Barn wedding is an elegant experience with rustic New England charm. Fern Hill Barn is tucked away in the hills of central mass. It is a quiet location and the views from this venue are very beautiful. Fern Hill Barn is committed to experienced private service and only offers one wedding per day! Fern Hill Barn runs a sustainable business that works to protect the environment and they are committed to giving back to their community. Read on if this is also something that matters to you.

Fern Hill Barn is a family owned business. They promote a green operation and are committed to recycling, reducing, reusing and composting. This isn’t just a line they use to look attractive, they really put actions to their words. Fern Hill Barn sources local ingredients whenever they can and also grow 100+ varieties of their own vegetables, herbs, berries and flowers. They offer eco-friendly and hormone free meat options on their menus. Fern Hill Barn does not use water bottles, but instead offers water stations and pitchers on all tables. They also launder all their linens onsite, instead of transporting off site. This way they can also restrict chemical use.

Fern Hill Barn donates leftover food to a local food pantry, which distributes to families and elderly in the area. I will say that again. Zukas donates leftover food to a local food pantry! As someone who has been to more weddings than I can count (and sometimes is privy to ‘behind the scenes’) I cannot tell you how many times I see garbage bins full of uneaten, untouched food. It’s painful. The fact that Fern Hill Barn donates leftover food also speaks volumes about their heart and attitude. You will truly be in perfect hands at Fern Hill Barn.

Fern Hill Barn is also willing to offer additional ideas about how you can make your wedding a green wedding.


The Bridal Suite and Day Spa is separate from the main barn. It is the perfect place to get ready and you can even stay over after your wedding.

The Barn has an indoor banquet room, perfect for a cocktail hour or an off season wedding. It can accommodate 150 guests. It is full of country charm with a double sided fieldstone fireplace, an oak bar and red maple flooring.

The elegant white Tent is lit with delicate white lights. The tent can accommodate 250 guests and is perfect for an in season wedding. If the weather is not looking so great, Fern Hill Barn offers side enclosures and heaters at no charge.

Ceremonies can take place outdoors at the Gazebo overlooking the beautiful hills and gardens.

Fern Hill Barn has many options for photos all close by. Their gardens are meticulously maintained and the property is surrounded by fields and views of the rolling hills. The photography options are endless!

We love this venue, it’s listed in Our Favorite Central Mass Wedding Venues.

“Audrey really captured us”
“Hiring Audrey as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Audrey was fantastic from our first email exchange, through a great mini engagement shoot, to the wedding day and delivery of photos.
I can’t rave enough about how incredible she is! She’s professional, relaxed, super helpful, and was really like the coolest guest at our wedding who happened to have a bunch of camera equipment to photograph our whole day.
Audrey really captured “us” and we’ll have the memories of our wedding forever as a result of her amazing work. Thank you so much, Audrey.”

I would love to photograph your Fern Hill Barn wedding.

Being your Fern Hill Barn wedding photographer gives me an advantage because I know the venue extremely well – having photographed weddings here for over 10 years. I know the best spots to use and the best times to photograph. I have photographed rainy and sunny days here. So I know where to go indoors if the weather is not ideal.
