To give you gorgeous, newly-engaged couples a bit of loved-up inspiration, we thought we would put together a little gallery or just some of the incredible weddings we have been lucky enough to host, here at The Great Barn.
Here at The Great Barn, Devon, from the outside our barn has all the charms and history of its 17th century birth date, but on the inside, the barn has been lovingly and sympathetically restored with a few 21st century additions; a state-of-the-art lighting system being one of them.
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.
Neil & Graeme Knight-Gibbons were married on the 1st October 2016!
They chose to have their wedding in October because of their love for Autumn and the colours this season produces, which they incorporated into their day as much as possible. With no particular theme in mind, the couple just wanted everyone to have fun, enjoy themselves and be involved in the day as much as possible.
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.
When you book your wedding at The Great Barn Devon, we give you a full weekend to totally relax and take in every, single moment of your special celebration. Our beautiful, cosy cottages are the perfect place to pamper yourself the night before, to prepare at leisure the morning of your big day and sleep in late, the morning after.
Because we are nestled in 120 acres of idyllic Devon countryside, we think your wedding guests should have the chance to enjoy the full weekend too and so, we are offering the use of our fields behind the Barn, for glamping or festival style accommodation galore!
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…
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.
