Latest news from The Great Barn – a breathtakingly beautiful Wedding Venue in Devon.
We’re not just about weddings here at The Great Barn Devon. We also have the pleasure of hosting some wonderful events for incredible charities, like the recent Ultimate Spring Party for Farms For City Children, founded by author Michael Morpurgo and his wife Clare.
We’ve had a little rummage through our favourite bridal blogs and below are just some of the ways you can style your wedding or party, with one of the season’s current trends – the folding chair.
For companies and individuals, who love the peaceful, countryside setting of our wonderful barn, but are looking for something a little smaller, we also have The West Barn.
With our gazebo looking absolutely fantastic and eagerly waiting for its first outdoor wedding this year, we have put together an inspiration board on our Pinterest page, with some beautiful, simple and cost effective ways to decorate an outdoor space, ready for tying the knot.
This month we played host to the UK launch of the Mazda MX-5 RF. Around 90 journalists, over the course of three days, were flown by private jet into Exeter airport where they picked up one of the brand new cars. They then drove to The Great Barn for lunch, as well as a presentation about the new range. The all-new Mazda MX-5 RF Retractable Fastback will go on sale in the UK on the 4th March 2017.
So that our brides can get married in the garden we are building a beautiful gazebo. We’ve used oak which has been cut from our woodland. The roof will be made from individual shingles from larch, sourced from a timber yard in the Teign Valley. Next step is to have it licensed and then we are good to go. The plan is for our brides to make their entrance through the little arched gate in our courtyard and walk the length of the lawn….on a fine summer’s day what could be more perfect!
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.
To give you gorgeous, newly-engaged couples a bit of loved-up inspiration, we thought we would put together a little gallery or just some of the incredible weddings we have been lucky enough to host, here at The Great Barn.
Entertaining your guests has never been easier. There are so many ways to interact with your friends and family and keep them happy and relaxed at those ‘in between’ times of your big day. Here are just some ideas that have worked really well with our wedding couples; we’d love to know what you are planning to do.
