Walking in our Winter Wonderland

The lights are up, the tree is decorated and Christmas anticipation fills the air. Here at Southend Barns we are getting in the festive spirit with a look back at some of the beautiful yuletide weddings that have graced our West Sussex wedding venue.

The festive season offers much scope for the imagination when it comes to creating a romantic wedding theme. From our 200-year-old Threshing Barn dripping in fairy lights to creating a winter wonderland with luscious local greenery, or embracing the ethereal beauty of a frosty white wedding, we have seen lots of wonderful examples of stunning winter weddings.

O Starry Night
One imaginative couple created a beautiful installation of striking paper stars at their December wedding. The stars were suspended from the wooden beams in our Threshing Barn and complemented with simple white table d├ęcor to ensure they truly took centre stage.

Tis the Season
The recent wedding of Amy and Carlos featured this fabulous seasonal signage decorated with winter-inspired flowers and foliage. They also opted for a festive infused fizz to serve guests, pimping their Prosecco with sprigs of rosemary and pomegranate seeds.

Magic Moments
Our office manager, Alice celebrated her winter wedding here last year which incorporated lots of magical festive touches including a stunning canopy of twinkling fairy lights, garlands of greenery and festive wreath. Alice and Pat also put the Christmas tree to good use, decorating it with photos showcasing special moments from their life together. It was lovely to see another couple use the tree in a similar way this month.

Wishing all our past and future couples a very Merry Christmas from everyone at Southend Barns and Roots!
