Barn Wedding Venue Ideas

The beauty of a barn wedding is you get the freedom to do things your way. Wedding barns are always for exclusive hire and usually for the whole weekend so you get the day before to set up and decorate, and you can choose the timings for your big day.

We’re lucky to have the original beams, high ceilings and plenty of natural light at The Barn at Cott Farm. Our wedding venue is furnished with beautiful wooden tables and chairs, natural carpet and a handmade bar. It comes dressed with twinkly fairy lights, Chinese lanterns and neutral bunting. This means you can just turn up with your table decorations. Or you can dress the barn to suit you and your wedding theme…

Barn wedding with rustic glamour

Add a touch of glamour to your barn wedding with chandeliers and candelabras. Go for a homemade chandelier using jars and fairy lights for a rustic look or choose industrial-style lights such as try a giant light up sign.

Woodland wonder barn wedding

A woodland inspired barn wedding should feature plenty of greenery. Think woody, foliage-draped centrepieces and bouquets bursting with greens.

Bunting is not only essential for a country wedding, it’s a great way to add colour and bring your theme together!

Pom poms are a great alternative to bunting…
