Wedding Drink Trends

When it comes to serving drinks at your wedding, there’s so many new and wonderful recipes and trends and now pretty much anything goes. No longer is it necessary to provide wine with the meal and a champagne toast. Trends for bars to ‘pimp up’ your Prosecco/Gin/Hot chocolate, are in full flow and not going anywhere soon

Autumn Wedding Inspiration

The Great Barn Devon is a beautiful venue to get married in any time of the year. But autumn brings with it such decadence and rich beauty, as the leaves on the ivy turn to a deep red and the garden releases its hold on summer. With 120 acres of countryside to take advantage of, this truly is a stunning time to make memories.

Spring Inspiration Pinterest Board

Winter still has us in her frosty grip, but we are inspired by the beautiful, crisp sunshine that we are being treated to and that gives us lots of lovely ideas for spring weddings.

We are so excited to see what our lovely couples will be doing for their weddings this upcoming season. Spring at the barn is such a wonderful time of year. New life is pinging up all over the garden and the days start to stretch out a little longer.
