5 reasons to choose a barn wedding

Why barns make the best wedding venues

A rustic barn could be the perfect choice of venue for your big day, offering versatility, romance and buckets of charm.

Choosing a venue for your wedding is hugely exciting but, with so much choice out there it can also be overwhelming, and many couples find it difficult to know where to start.

We may be ever so slightly biased, but, for us, you can’t beat a barn wedding venue. Don’t believe us? Read on to find out why a barn could be the perfect choice of venue for your wedding day.

Stunning scenery

Even before you step through the doors, a barn venue offers a key advantage over many other wedding venues – stunning scenery. Converted barns tend to be located in rural locations surrounded by beautiful countryside, which provides the perfect scenic backdrop to your big day, as well as offering excellent photo opportunities. A rural setting also offers other benefits; with no neighbours around to complain about the noise, you may find that your venue allows you to continue the party longer into the night or enjoy noisy activities such as a fireworks display.

A flexible space

One of the biggest benefits of a barn venue is that it offers you a totally blank canvas that you can tailor to fit your vision. With high ceilings, natural materials and neutral colours, you can have the colour scheme and decorations you’ve always wanted, without having to worry about clashing with the carpet or wallpaper. Their flexible nature also means that barn venues lend themselves well to all different styles of wedding – so whether you prefer vintage glamour or rustic romance, a barn venue offers the perfect setting for your big day.

Al fresco entertaining

Most barn venues come with plenty of outdoor space which can be used as an extra entertaining area for you and your guests. Our private enclosed gardens offer the perfect space to enjoy some post-ceremony drinks and canapes, and to get some photographs taken with your guests – including that all-important confetti shot! If you’re looking for something a little different, you could even use the space for some quirky garden games such as lawn croquet, giant Jenga and giant Connect 4.

Character and charm

Everyone wants their wedding to stand out from the crowd, and the right venue can make all the difference. With original or quirky features, and a rich, interesting history, barn venues offer bucket-loads of character and charm that you just don’t get from a contemporary hotel. By choosing décor that highlights and complements the individual character of your venue, you can create a unique, charming wedding that people will remember for all the right reasons.

Exclusive use

Unlike a hotel wedding, you won’t have to worry about guests coming and going, or about having to share your big day with anyone other than your friends and family. Barn wedding venues such as Crondon Park specialise in hosting weddings and offer couples totally exclusive use of the venue for the duration of their big day.  At Crondon Park we pride ourselves on being one of the premier barn wedding venues in Essex, so you can be sure that our team of expert staff will be totally focused on giving you the wedding you’ve always dreamed of.
