Latest news from The Great Barn – a breathtakingly beautiful Wedding Venue in Devon.
Welcome to a new, regular feature on The Great Barn Devon blog pages. Not only do we host some of the most incredibly beautiful, personal and memorable weddings and events here, in the picturesque Devon countryside, we also come across some equally awesome weddings that happen elsewhere around the globe.
Faye and Dan Taylor were married last April, with their ceremony and reception being held in our beautiful Great Barn. We are so happy to be able to share just some of their memories and photographs, courtesy of Rebecca Roundhill, from their wonderful day. Don’t you think Dan and his fellow guard of honour, look so handsome and dapper in their full dress fire fighter uniforms?
The Great Barn Devon plays host to some incredible weddings each year and so, over this time we have met some rather fabulous suppliers for all things bridal. Sarah Treble is a truly talented wedding dress designer, based in Exeter. We managed to grab five minutes with her, in between designing and meeting her brides, to find out more about the inspiration behind her work and what an ‘average’ day in the life of a bespoke bridal gown creator, looks like. Oh! And make sure you read all the way to the bottom as there’s a special 10% offer from Sarah for all The Great Barn brides-to-be!
Here at The Great Barn Devon, we are extremely privileged to be part of some absolutely beautiful, and incredibly inspirational, weddings. We love to see the wedding themes you have chosen, and whether they’re inspired by the seasons, a favourite film, a colour palette or an era, our brides and grooms never cease to amaze and impress us.
Jennifer & John were married at St. John the Baptist Church in Higher Ashton and held their wedding celebrations at The Great Barn, in September last year. The happy couple were so pleased to share with us, just some of the memorable moments from their special day and how they met, just over two years ago…
With a day to prepare, the big day itself and no rush afterwards, The Great Barn’s three-day exclusive hire is proving very popular for 2017. But fear not dear couples, the last few dates for 2017 are still available in some of the more popular months, namely June and September.
So, if you are still trying to decide between a summer and autumn wedding, here’s why we love these two very different times of year…
Finally, thanks to fab photographer Rosie Anderson, I have some lovely images of West Barn. We completed our second barn earlier this year to take the place of the marquee. It will act as a wet weather cover for drinks receptions, really useful for coffee and as we’ve put in some squishy sofas at one end, it’s also a perfect place for those who want to escape the music and just chill and chat.
I was so pleased to see our tall white wooden candlesticks making their debut in the Barn at Will and Camille’s wedding on Saturday. Teamed with jam jars filled with simple white flowers, the overall effect was really stunning.
Up on a hill, just a 3 minute walk from the Barn is the picture perfect St John the Baptist Church, and a number of our clients marry there. We also have a license for civil ceremonies in the Barn – so the choice is there. Often a difficult one!
