Barn Wedding Decoration

Top 3 Barn Wedding Decoration Ideas:

1. Rustic Wedding Style:

Barn wedding venues can be found as part of old manor house estates, even historic abbeys but most often as part of farm settings. The rural character of most wedding barn locations makes creating a rustic wedding design very achievable. Pairing various elements such as bunting and fairy lights with the flag stones, beams and stone walls already in place you can create a rustic wedding that can range from chic to vintage in their feel.

2. Elegant Wedding Style:

Having photographed many barn weddings we have seen brides transform these humble rural buildings to exquisite settings that showcase the most elegant of wedding styles with a relaxed atmosphere that is encouraged by the barn setting. With a sophisticated colour palette, good use of lighting and curated details barns can be transformed into beautiful settings perfect for even a black tie affair.

3. Whimsical Wedding Style:

The rural charm of barns, perfect for creating a rustic feel or loosening up a more formal affair, is also great for creating a whimsical wedding feel. The colouring of the buildings, the beautiful gardens and the natural landscapes in these settings are a perfect backdrop in which to infuse playful elements that create a romantic design for the day. Candelabra, shabby chic detailing, soft colours and various lighting elements can be brought together to achieve this look.
