How popular are barn weddings?

Barn weddings are becoming more and more popular, especially in counties like Essex that boast rolling countryside, yet are easily accessible from larger towns and cities.

Barn weddings in Essex are on the rise, as they are throughout the UK. In fact, data from Hitched, suggested that barn weddings were the most popular venue type in 2019.

One undeniable reason barn weddings are growing in popularity, is the photo opportunities they present. Rustic settings surrounded by rolling countryside makes for great wedding shots, and something that’s a little different from the norm.

In fact, one of the great things about barn weddings is that they give you the freedom to ignore traditions if you choose to. They naturally create a more laidback atmosphere. For example, many of our guests love our hog roast, as an alternative to a more traditional evening buffet.

Barn weddings allow you to create a day that’s more personalised. Think of it as a blank canvas that you can tailor to suit you – from the décor, to the outfits, to the photos.

We’re happy to report that barn weddings are still going strong! We’re holding weddings every day from the Baronial Hall, not just because barn weddings have become a trendy option, but for a whole host of more practical reasons too, including how spacious they are, the history and culture they bring to your big day, and how customisable they can be.

There will always be trends when it comes to weddings, but the most important thing to remember is that it’s about what you want. Think about what fits with your colour scheme, your preferred cuisine, and your budget for example, before making a final decision.

Our Essex barn wedding venue is ideal for all seasons, thanks to the Baronial Hall being fully air conditioned and temperature controlled. The hall underwent extensive refurbishment and improvements in 1995, during which the walls were reconstructed with modern thermal materials, allowing us to temperature control the hall. This means you can be safe in the knowledge that you and your guests will feel comfortable all day, whenever your wedding is booked for.

What can I say! Thank you so very much for making me one of the happiest girls ever! To say Mike and I had a great day yesterday would be the biggest understatement; we have had so many lovely comments from our guests on what a wonderful wedding we had and that’s all down to you. The food was perfect, the bar and waiting staff were nothing but polite and extremely efficient and Tracey as our front our house was flawless. I’ve had so many calls and emails back fourth with Kara and the wedding team over the last year or so. Each time, nothing has ever been too much trouble, emails are responded to so quickly and how Kara remembers so many faces, dates and names is beyond me! There are so many beautiful wedding venues out there, but those venues are only ever as good as the people behind it. You not only have a beautiful venue but you also have so many brilliant staff who make that venue shine. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
