Latest news from The Great Barn – a breathtakingly beautiful Wedding Venue in Devon.
The Great Barn Devon, sits amongst acres and acres of gardens, farmland and woodland, nestled in a little hamlet. It’s the most gorgeous of settings and a true memory-maker for any bride and groom. So, when 200 guests arrive en masse and, as the mighty Prince one said, “Party like it’s 1999!”, just how do you give them a truly awesome celebration without upsetting the neighbouring residents and farm animals? The answer? A silent disco.
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.

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.
Catering for your wedding guests can be a delicious but stressful minefield. Deciding on whether to serve a three-course wedding breakfast or a belt-busting all-you-can-eat buffet is only half the quandary. Depending on what time of day you get married, can mean the difference between one or two (or sometimes even more) servings of food.
Traditionally, a symbol of fertility and prosperity, with the top tier saved for the christening of a wedded couple’s first born, the humble wedding cake is now a whole lot more then ever before!
Today’s beautiful wedding, which was held at The Great Barn Devon over the Easter weekend, just goes to show that, even when the weather doesn’t want to play, the show will most definitely go on.
For this month’s Great and Good feature, we’ve decided to dedicate it to some of our favourite bridal blogs. They are bursting at the seams with wedding inspiration, helpful advice and tonnes & tonnes of real brides and grooms, and are a regular stopover for a lot of our couples. And you can see why …
