Latest news from The Great Barn – a breathtakingly beautiful Wedding Venue in Devon.
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.
Wonderful Wedding Inspiration from our Favourite Bridal Blogs.
Boho Luxe Inspiration for your table setting. 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.
Great Barn Weddings – Daisy & Oliver. Wedding inspiration from our brides and grooms. This time, the wedding of Daisy and Oliver McCann who shared their beautiful day with 200 guests!
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. 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.
