Latest news from The Great Barn – a breathtakingly beautiful Wedding Venue in Devon.
Neil & Graeme Knight-Gibbons were married on the 1st October 2016!
They chose to have their wedding in October because of their love for Autumn and the colours this season produces, which they incorporated into their day as much as possible. With no particular theme in mind, the couple just wanted everyone to have fun, enjoy themselves and be involved in the day as much as possible.
A festive filled evening of mulled wine and mince pies, readings and congregational carols – all to get you in the Christmas spirit!
After hosting a lovely couple recently, whose venue suddenly went into liquidation and left them without a place to celebrate their wedding, it made us start thinking about what exactly is covered by your wedding insurance and how easy it is to find the right one for you.
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 weddings that have melted our hearts this month.
This is the incredible talent that is Katharine Lightfoot and we are delighted to be showcasing her latest work at The Great Barn Devon from 19th – 23rd November.
Just look at these wonderful images, courtesy of Martyn Norsworthy, of the classically styled wedding of Alex & Richard. We particularly love the moments snapped in our walled garden and at the back of the Barn. And the hints of blue in the floral displays and the bridesmaids, adds a real splash of summer.
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 Event, it’s a collection of handpicked, unique pieces of furniture, linens, accessories, cutlery, crockery and props for you to hire for your wedding or party. Hosting many weddings across the year, means we have accumulated quite a hoard of beautiful things, from unusual Indian chairs, to simple wooden trestle tables; from hurricane lamps to chalkboards and easels.
It gives us great pleasure to introduce you to Daisy and Oliver, who were married at the beginning of July. Theirs is, by far, the biggest wedding we have hosted with 200 guests. And we think the table layout worked really well to accommodate such a size, without losing that intimate feel. Photographer Emma Solley, has created some outstanding imagery and our good friend, Joanna Game, has done it again with her stunning floral creations.
