At LG Fine Art Weddings, we love photographing barn weddings. So why choose a barn wedding? There are lots of beautiful barns around offering couples the most amazing venues to tie the knot in. So let’s explore the top reasons for why couples are booking a barn wedding.
Most barns offer a “Blank canvas” for couples to take and dress as they want. With neutral colour schemes, natural walls and floors there will be a a low chance of the bridesmaids clashing with the wallpaper or carpet! Any theme or colour will work with a neutral palette. High ceilings, large spaces and pretty beams all add to the romantic ambience of a barn wedding.
Barns are so versatile to dress, you can hang fairy lights, bunting and flowers to create a fairylike theme, or keep it natural with a vintage, country or rustic theme. Sweet carts, ‘post boxes’, wellies and even a caravan are just some of the quirky ideas that our brides and grooms have used to express their individuality.
Set in idyllic, rural countryside, many barns offer that “hidden haven” from the hustle and bustle of city life. Why not escape to the beautiful countryside, and there’s no need for your guests to travel between the ceremony and reception. Fresh air, amazing views and even local wildlife make a barn wedding a perfect venue to enjoy your special day.
Versatility is the key and often with barn venues, they are set in glorious gardens with lots of outside space and sometimes with extra outbuildings that can be used as dressing rooms during the course of the day. You can always have the ceremony outside and then party on down in the barn later.
Explore the gardens and admire the countryside during the drinks reception or you can even set up garden games for the children and ‘big kids’ too!
What is gorgeous about barn weddings for us as photographers is the photographic opportunities. Rustic barn walls, arched doorways and wood panelling all provide a great feast of backdrops for the photographer.
At a barn wedding, anything goes. It’s your time to be creative, from homemade food to canapes, bbqs to hog roasts, handwritten signs to hand sewn runners. And lets not forget the evening reception – a live band, a dj or a string quartet, it’s your choice! You can do it your way which is why so many couples are choosing to have a barn wedding.
