The Great Barn wedding in Devon, photographer Holly Collings (33)

Good morning beautiful! Gin lovers – this one’s for you. (And who doesn’t, at lunchtime on a Saturday, right?!)  An elegantly styled, beautifully photographed, gin-themed wedding. If only we’d thought of that… gin connoisseurs Victoria and Adam were married in the Devonshire village of Ashton. They had bottles hanging over the reception venue’s entrance, sloe gin favours, and the tables were named after different gins. The amazing table plan, incorporating the bottles, was put together by Adam’s step Dad, who also made the church signs. The church was only a short walk from the drinks reception at The Great Barn, allowing a fiddler led procession from the ceremony to the drinks reception! The Great Barn has a stunning collection of buildings all set in beautiful grounds and gardens.

The barn is such a beautiful venue, we just added some decoration with the flowers and the gin theme. Making the gin wedding favours and the table plan put our stamp on the day. We planned our wedding in 8 months – I didn’t realise when we embarked on it what a challenge that would be. Having said that, wedding planning will take as long as you give it and having to be efficient and make decisions quickly made the planning stage more enjoyable for us!
