Do you want something different for your wedding? If so, why not consider tying the knot on a farm or in a barn rather than in a more traditional venue such as a church or a fancy hotel? Barn and farm weddings are all the rage these days and for good reason!
Why Choose a Farm Wedding Venue?
If you want a more relaxed and laidback atmosphere when you finally say “I do” to the love of your life, a farm or barn venue can be the perfect location for the momentous occasion. Here are some reasons why.
1. Farm wedding venues are versatile
With their natural beauty, the potential benefits of farm and barn wedding venues are simply endless. Featuring high ceilings, large open spaces and neutral colour schemes, such settings are easy to dress up and decorate. In fact, there will be a wide variety of possibilities, meaning you can personalise everything! If you have the knack for decorating spaces, this is your opportunity to unleash your creative mind. This is one of the main reasons why farm venues are often described as a “blank canvas”.
Whether you want a glamorous and glitzy wedding or one with a country or vintage theme, creating the perfect backdrop for one of the most important days of your life will be a breeze. With a farm venue, you will also have the option of using the great outdoors for your reception, ceremony or perhaps even both. By choosing this country setting to tie the knot, you will get to have two wedding venues for the price of one.
2. Savour the beauty of nature
More often than not, farm and barn venues offer some of the best views you could ever imagine. Besides the rustic beauty of the barn itself, you will also get to marvel at the abundant greenery and nearby rolling hills. If you are a fan of the great outdoors, you will certainly love to bask in the beauty of nature on your special day.
3. Great photo opportunities
At a farm wedding venue, you will be able to access a whole host of cinemamatic-style backgrounds for your treasured wedding album. With awe-inspiring landscapes and natural scenery serving as the backdrop, you will want to browse through your wedding photos again and again.
4. No hustle and bustle
Are you sick and tired of the fast-paced life in the city? If you are, why not give yourself and your guests the chance to relax and unwind on your wedding day? In fact, barn weddings are ideal if you want a laidback atmosphere in an environment where you can escape the hustle and bustle of city life.
If your guests and the wedding party are well-rested and invigorated by the peaceful and beautiful surroundings, they will be in a much better mood to party and celebrate your big day. As a result, your wedding will go off with a bang as everyone forgets about any worries they might have.
5. A home away from home
It is not every day that you get to spend the night or a long weekend on a farm. As an added bonus, these venues usually offer accommodation not only for the happy couple but also for their family and friends as well. It will be like a home away from home as you all gather together to celebrate the wonderful occasion.
Whether you decide to stay on the farm before or after the wedding, or even both, you will just love the scenic view of your rural surroundings. You will also be able to fill your lungs with fresh air and explore the little things that make the countryside so special.
There is something truly magical and unique about a barn or farm venue. Not only will your wedding be even more fabulous than you had ever imagined, but the relaxing beauty of nature will allow your guests to enjoy your special day to the fullest. So, if you are planning to tie the knot any time soon, make sure you consider booking a farm or barn as your perfect wedding venue.
