If you are thinking about a wedding with a rustic, country theme then a barn wedding could be the answer for you. Locations are usually surrounded by rolling fields and stunning countryside. Barn weddings enable professional wedding photographers to deliver a collection of romantic photographs, at any time of the year.

Character, charm and space

Barn Weddings ooze oodles of character and charm and can look amazing when the venue is decorated! There is usually plenty of outdoor space for drinks and canapes. Your wedding photographer will have a choice of stunning backdrops without having to be aware of those ubiquitous street lamp posts and yellow lines, common to city wedding venues!

Personalise your Barn Wedding

As a professional wedding photographer, I feel it is important to put your own stamp on your special day. If starting with a blank canvas doesn’t faze you, then barn weddings are perfect to introduce your own theme or colour palette. From fantastic reception decorations, homemade favours, great wedding signage and unique table plans, barn wedding venues look brilliant when they’re full of homemade features.

Venue Accommodation

One thing is guaranteed! Barn Weddings have plenty of personality and each one is unique. From original wooden beams to large windows flooding the barn with natural light, (a wedding photographer’s dream by the way), barn wedding venues usually have accommodation facilities. If you choose to hold your marriage ceremony at this type of venue, then you can make the most of every moment of your day, saving on travel time between locations.

Bridal Prep at Barn Weddings

Many barn wedding venues can also provide areas for those all-important bridal preparations your wedding photographer will want to capture. There’s usually plenty of space for bride and bridesmaids to get ready and your barn wedding venue can be that special, memorable place for your first night as a married couple.
