The Great and the Good – Wonderful Wedding Inspiration from our Favourite Bridal Blogs

Amy and Simon at The Great Barn Devon, Shooting PIxels photography, autumn wedding, barn wedding, Devon wedding

This picture says it all! Autumn is officially here at The Great Barn. Beautifully shot by Shooting Pixels, the wedding of Amy and Simon, filled us with joy. Rain definitely did not stop play and the clouds parted long enough to capture a truly lovely day. Amy wore a stunning strapless gown and accessorised it with a rich red wrap for when the chilly evening approached. And no autumn wedding is complete without pumpkins!!

And whilst you are dreaming of spicy, hot chocolate drinks, warm blankets and open fires (aren’t we all this time of year), take a few minutes to have a look at some of the other weddings that have melted our hearts this month.

Don’t forget, we have a gallery of our own where we share images of all our weddings and happy couples. If you would like to see your special day on our website, give us a shout or ask your photographer to send us some samples. We’d love to hear from you!

WE Photographie, Green Wedding Shoes, Bohemian wedding, lakeside wedding

There’s so much to say about this wedding. The bridesmaids (how many would you pick and how do you choose?), the stunning floral arch, the carpet runners leading to the wedding ceremony, the array of candles….so much personality, style and inspiration! Image by WE Photographie, blogged by Green Wedding Shoes.

This wedding is full of personal touches, including handmade wedding rings. Holly and Tom got ready together and filled their special day with fun games and a photo booth (this trend is not going anywhere!). Images by Fear Photography, blogged by Boho Weddings

We love, love, love this bird theme. Delicately done and not a stuffed bird or caged one in sight. Just beautiful design, subtle styling and clever favours! Shot by Melissa Beattie, blogged by Whimsical Wonderland Wedding.

Matt + Jess photography, minimalist wedding, Birmingham wedding, art gallery wedding

What more can you say? Sarah worked at a bakery, whilst Alasdair was homeless and looking for work. Sarah hired him on the spot and so their brilliant love story began. Informal long benches and trestles, in a big white, open space, filled with friends and loved ones. Perfect!  Images by Matt + Jess, blogged by Bespoke Bride.

Jewish wedding, Cape Town wedding, Mr & Mrs Unique, Shanna Jones, colourful weddings

A Jewish wedding filled to the brim with a multitude of colours and textures and patterns. And yes, there are vegetables in the flower arrangements! And it works! Shot by Shanna Jones, blogged by Mr & Mrs Unique.

And let’s not forget all of these beauties too!

Until next month dearest readers… x

The Great and the Good – Wonderful Wedding Inspiration from our Favourite Bridal Blogs

Daisy & Oliver McCann wedding, Great Barn wedding, Devon wedding, barn wedding

We are so glad you are back here again to sift through the delights that we have found on our favourite bridal blogs lately. We have met some incredible couples this year; all of whom have brought bags of personality and character to their wedding day. The Great Barn is a wonderful venue because it can become anything you want it to be. It can work with any theme from contemporary to vintage inspired and offers something completely different for every season.  Take Daisy and Oliver (pictured above – image by Emma Solley); such an elegant affair and even though there were 200 guests, it felt so personal.

As autumn draws in (a truly magical time of year, we think!) and the flora that surrounds us, turns from green, to amber, to rust, to red, we are very happy to show you just some of the inspirational real weddings that we have come across over the past few weeks.

Don’t forget, we have a gallery of our own where we share images of all our weddings and happy couples. If you would like to see your special day on our website, give us a shout or ask your photographer to send us some samples. We’d love to hear from you!

The Great and the Good – Wonderful Wedding Inspiration from our Favourite Bridal Blogs

The Great Barn Devon Wedding Venue

Welcome to the craziest month of the wedding calendar! Last month was pretty hectic and exciting too, with some beautiful weddings at The Great Barn. This month is no exception and the weather is being just as kind to our lovely brides and grooms.

Our Great and Good post this month is dedicated to brides. Those that we meet and the ones that we ‘Ooh and Aah’ over, on the pages on our favourite bridal blogs. It’s all about the gowns, the accessories, the make-up, the hair and the moments captured when girl meets boy (or girl) and they fall in love all over again.

Here comes the bride…

Emma Solley images - The Great Barn Devon wedding

Oops sorry! The latest installment of The Great and The Good is a little late, dear readers. We can’t seem to keep up with the months as they whizz past at crazy miles an hour! We hope, however, that you will forgive us very quickly when you take in all this incredible, beautiful, personal wedding inspiration that we’ve been delighting over recently.

Emma Solley Photography is responsible for the divine picture above. We were lucky enough to host the wedding of Daisy and Oliver at the beginning of this month and we can’t wait to show you more of Emma’s stunning photography very soon.

Our blog post this month is dedicated to special snapshots. Weddings are full of them (obvs!) so we want to celebrate, not just the first looks, first kisses and first dances, but the funny, spine-tingly, heart-fuzzying, smile-making intimate moments.  Enjoy!

When it comes to bridal fashion, mixing traditional with unconventional is a trend we wholeheartedly approve of at The Great Barn. Anticipating what the bride will be wearing, as she makes her entrance, is something we really look forward to.

We love, love, love a forward-thinking, independent, creative bridal party and so, in their honour, here is our latest inspiration board dedicated to the cardi-coveting, leather-jacket-loving, stuck-on-sequins bride.

And remember, if you are one of our lovely brides, please do send us images of your wedding day, so we can put them on our gallery!
