Great Barn Weddings – Chris & Andrew

This wonderful couple were married at The Great Barn Devon last month, ably assisted by their very handsome Wire Fox Terrier called Spike. Andrew gave us a quick run down of the day… “We couldn’t have wished for a better day, plenty of sunshine but just enough cloud to keep everyone cool.  As you can imagine, the Medieval costumes were quite heavy and with too much sun we’d have been suffering.

Great Barn Weddings – Vicky & Bob

Vicky and Bob were married at The Great Barn in March this year. Spring was well and truly on its way and the bridesmaids with their gorgeous red wraps certainly added a splash of colour to the celebrations.

Building A New Gazebo For Outdoor Weddings

So that our brides can get married in the garden we are building a beautiful gazebo. We’ve used oak which has been cut from our woodland. The roof will be made from individual shingles from larch, sourced from a timber yard in the Teign Valley. Next step is to have it licensed and then we are good to go. The plan is for our brides to make their entrance through the little arched gate in our courtyard and walk the length of the lawn….on a fine summer’s day what could be more perfect!

Church or Civil Devon Wedding?

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!
