Girls and guys – if you’re booking a barn for your wedding reception then you’re going to need a little help with the styling… and you’re going to have so much fun planning and decorating the place! Countryside touches, rustic floral arrangements and traditional crafts are some of the things I love most about English barn weddings… and all of the beautiful touches in the images shown here are from Gemma & Joe’s wedding, photographed by lovely Benjamin Mathers Photography.
Barn wedding styling, hanging flowers and setting the ‘stage’ for your cake!
Barns need lighting, so it’s a great idea to start here. Gemma and Joe strung festoon lighting between the beams, added fairy lights and repurposed a beautiful vintage candelabra – which they found in a bric-a-brac shop – as a centrepiece for their barn wedding.
Hanging flowers on the walls add interest to bare patches – and they’re super easy to do with a little twine or raffia and some nails! Remember to add water unless you’re using dried flowers! 😉
