Ticklebelly Hill is a 150-year-old barn in Southern New Brunswick, located between St Andrews by-the-Sea and St Stephen. We only host 25 weddings a year, giving each one exclusive access to the property for the whole weekend, so there is no feeling of being rushed while truly enjoying the company of your friends and family. We are in operation June through October and usually book 12 to 16 months in advance.

The venue seats up to 140 people comfortably. Harvest tables and chiavari chairs are included. We work with only the best wedding vendors in New Brunswick and take pride in sharing our preferred vendor names with our couples. The owner, Sarah Conley has over 9 years experience in the wedding industry.

Located in a beautiful rural part of New Brunswick, we provide a truly relaxed environment for your one-of-a-kind celebration, whatever the season. As well as the barn venue, a dedicated outdoor ceremony site with seating, bonfire area, large furnished deck, lawn games and parking are included. The closest accommodation options are only 3 km away, and we are less than 20 minutes from St Andrews by-the-Sea, Canada's oldest resort town. Your guests will feel so privileged to be invited to a wedding in such a fun, historic and unique part of the country. Fine dining, outdoor excursions, world-class golf and boutique shopping await.

 

The Conley Family

 

Sarah moved to New Brunswick after meeting Craig in Ontario in 2010. After only 10 months, they were engaged and planning their own wedding. In 2012 they married and bought a farm property on 300 acres in Oak Bay.

 

Sarah & Craig purchased the Berry Homestead with the intention to breathe new life into the barn and grounds which once housed and fed dairy cattle. Over the next two summers, every spare moment was invested into making Ticklebelly Hill the wedding and event venue Sarah had been dreaming of for years. The barn required some foundation work, reshingling, a new floor and complete installation of electricity and water. But first, the hay had to be removed - some of which hadn't seen the light of day for 150 years! 

 

Craig is a lobster fisherman who fishes in Passamaquoddy Bay with the family business, based on Deer Island. Sarah manages and oversees all weddings and events which take place on the property. She knows what a wedding entails and will use her expert knowledge to ensure your special day is extra special.
