Latest news from The Great Barn – a breathtakingly beautiful Wedding Venue in Devon.
Weddings needn’t be stressful, but somewhere along the way, there’s always a little bump in the road. Drawing up a wedding guest list seems like a simple task – just invite everyone you want to see you get married, surely?
In other news, we are absolutely thrilled to share with you, our brand new baby – The Great Event. Here you can search for unique and unusual handpicked finds, that are perfect for styling your wedding, party or any celebration. From trestle tables to vintage chairs, from candle holders to linen napkins, from barrels for beers to buckets for ice. We would LOVE for you to pop on over and have a look. And if you know someone who is looking for furniture and accessories with a vintage twist, tell them about us!
Spring is definitely upon us, so it feels more than a little strange to be posting this today. But bear with us, dear readers. For those of you planning your wedding to take place in the winter months, an inspirational board filled with all things warming, cosy, rich, seasonal, and indulgent is just what you need!
Welcome to the second instalment of our brand new feature on The Great Barn Devon’s blog pages. Not only do we host some of the most incredibly beautiful, personal and memorable weddings and events here, in the beautiful Devon countryside, we also come across some equally awesome weddings that happen elsewhere around the globe.
Here at The Great Barn, we know some truly unique and talented suppliers of all things weddingy. And Charlotte Atkinson is no exception. An award-winning, published artist and illustrator, Charlotte offers an incredibly personal gift if you are looking for something that will provide a lifelong memory of your wedding day.
Weddings are, of course, extremely personal and today’s is no exception. Because Neil, the groom, grew up very close to the couple’s chosen church, which he could see from his home, the couple knew that getting married somewhere with such personal meaning, was crucial to building new memories together.
Spring is definitely here, folks. There’s that familiar scent in the air, the hazy sunshine in the morning and the hint of wintery crispness still in the air that remind us it’s not quite shorts weather yet.
It’s time for another look at one of the couples that chose to marry here at The Great Barn. Chloe & Tom were married on the 11th July last year and as you can see from the wedding photographs, courtesy of the very clever Lucy Turnbull, the happy couple were surrounded by loving friends and family and took full advantage of our beautiful gardens for their celebrations.
Rachel & Nathan Buckingham celebrated their marriage to each other in the summer of 2015. They stayed from the Friday until the Sunday afternoon, having the whole venue exclusively, from start to finish. Rachel told us, “It was one of the best decisions we made, as it allowed us to have family and key people with us the night before the wedding.”
