Summer Is The Perfect Time For A Barn Wedding

5 Reasons To Exchange Vows At A Stunning Rural Retreat

Happy couples looking to book their summer wedding should choose a pretty barn venue for their ceremony and reception.

It’s not surprising that many UK couples choose summer as their preferred season to get married in, with the 30th August being the most popular date of the year to exchange vows. Although there’s not an absolute guarantee of good weather, the summer months do offer a better chance of sunshine than any other time of year and the long daylight hours means that you can make the most of the outdoors until late. A barn venue offers the perfect transition between inside and outside and is a stunning location for summer weddings.

Be Part Of History

What could be more charming than getting married in a Jacobean barn? The charisma and character that comes with such a building gives your summer wedding a real sense of grandeur, and you can’t help but pause and think about all the happy couples who have married here before you over the years.

A Rustic Affair

Barns offer the perfect canvas to customise your wedding based on the personalities of you as the bride and groom. The stripped back beams and wooden floors mean that you don’t need to worry about clashing with the décor in the same way that you would in a hotel function room. Instead, you can incorporate details from your wedding theme and decorate the room with pastel bunting, twinkling fairy lights or paper lanterns in summery colours.

A Rural Retreat

The grounds that come with barn weddings in Essex are part of what will make this a fairytale wedding for you. Whether your daily life is based in the hustle and bustle of the city, or even if you’re local to the area, you’ll appreciate the sense of calm and breath of fresh air that you’ll enjoy amidst the intensity of your wedding day. The grounds accompanying your barn venue are ideal for some pre-wedding leisure time, or even an escape for the happy couple to take some time out in after their vows. The spectacular surroundings are also a fantastic backdrop for some romantic photographs that you’ll treasure forever.

A barn wedding often allows the opportunity to get married outside. There are strict rules regarding external wedding ceremonies in the UK, but so long as the weather allows, then exchanging vows beneath the barn’s floral canopy falls within the regulations and is a picture-perfect way to begin married life. The reception can then continue inside, with the party going strong till the early hours.

The Party Doesn’t Have To End

No-one wants their wedding day to end, but when there’s a bridal suite on the same site as your barn venue, then it’s just a short stroll away at the end of the evening. You can even book a post-wedding breakfast for the following morning and invite your family and friends so that you can catch up and enjoy running through the highlights of your day.

Barn weddings are the perfect venue for a summer wedding, so if you’re looking to set the date for summer 2019 or beyond, then now’s the time to secure a picturesque barn location for your special day.
