From our beautiful English countryside setting to our eco-friendly set up with glorious wooden beams and gardens, our barns radiate natural charm. This year is our wooden anniversary (5 years!), so we have decided to embrace all things rustic and take a peek at some of our stunning woodland themed weddings to give you some inspiration for your special day.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to creating a wood-filled wedding. We’ve seen couples line the aisle of our Dairy Barn with real trees or create stunning entrances with oversized potted plants that are draped in fairy lights for an enchanted effect.
Wooden signposts are also a popular prop and look perfect in our Collecting Yard, directing people to all of the fabulous parts of your big day. Our courtyard is also a wonderful place to enjoy some garden games. We’ve seen some lovely classic wooden lawn games such as croquet and skittles – perfect for during the drinks reception to keep the kids and adults entertained!
Rustic wooden crates make an ideal home for wedding gifts and can also act as storage for props and supplies such as sweets, dancing shoes or for floral arrangements. Turn the crate over for a perfect wedding cake stand or opt for log slices which are also ideal for table centrepieces. We love this wooden crate inspired wedding cake by Tartufi Cakes!
When it comes to interesting guest book ideas for a woodland wedding we’ve seen a plethora of imaginative options; from asking guests to write their well wishes on little wooden hearts or on a wooden picnic bench which can later be used in the newlyweds’ garden.
Finally, don’t forget the finishing touches. Wooden keyrings or trinkets make lovely wedding favours and give your guests a charming keepsake to take home. Also, a beautiful wood inspired table plan standing at the entrance can really set the scene and help tie all the elements of your big day together.
